Stop Procrastinating by "Clearing to Neutral"
By Thanh Pham We often procrastinate because there is this one hidden thing holding us back. It is this one thing that makes you procrastinate and most people are not even aware what this is, but if you eliminate it you can say goodbye to procrastination forever. Friction A lot of times we procrastinate because we have to jump through a lot of hurdles before we can do the thing we actually want to do. For example, let’s say you need to prepare dinner. So you need your dishes, cutlery, pots and pans. But what if they are still in the sink from the time you used them for lunch? That means befor
Retired NSA Analyst Mickey Duniho Testifies in Arizona Election Integrity Trial
Mickey Duniho testified in yesterday's election integrity hearing held in Tucson, Arizona.  Duniho is one of thirteen plaintiffs suing Pima County to get them to comply with existing election laws.   He provides an excellent summary of the problems verifying elections counted on electronic voting machines. Pima County is notorious for fighting measures for election integrity and  have spent millions of taxpayer's dollars to prevent disclosure of public election records. The aim of the lawsuit against Pima County is to get the court to:1. Issue an injunction requiring the Defendants to

War on Democracy: Quick Shots - 11/2/2012
We're still having trouble, of late, keeping up with all the chicanery, dirty tricks and skullduggery now rolling across the country. So here, once again is our very quick take on just some of the most noteworthy items over the past few days that you'll want to keep in mind as we creep towards Election Day next Tuesday... • CBS Radio Affiliate in PA Inaccurate Says Photo ID Needed To Vote: "CBS Pi
Navajo Nation seeks comments on water rights legislation and meeting with Salazar
The Navajo Nation government is seeking comments on legislation for an upcoming meeting in Washington with Interior Sec. Ken Salazar. Earlier, a leaked document showed that Salazar is planning to sneak a revised water settlement for Navajo water rights to the Little Colorado River rights through a lame duck Congress.By Ed BecentiDine' Water Rights Committee LiaisonCensored Newshttp://

Israeli official sees "shocking" dictatorship in Egypt
A senior Israeli official described Egypt's new government on Friday as a "shocking dictatorial force" and predicted there would be no high-level contacts between the two countries, but the Israeli government distanced itself from his comments.The remarks by Amos Gilad, a top aide to Defense Minister Ehud Barak, were some of the harshest yet about the rise to prominence of Egypt's new Islamist pre

Obama vs. Romney
U.S. presidential elections periodically offer a dramatic choice rather than an echo. This was Barry Goldwater’s campaign slogan in 1964 against Lyndon Baines Johnson. Voters chose LBJ in a landslide.  Lop-sided victories are the usual outcome when two starkly different choices face U.S. voters in presidential contests.  Think of  Nixon vs. McGovern, or Hoover vs. FDR. Once every other generation,

Israel’s Best Puppet Shamed
The most reliable Israeli mouthpiece in the House of Commons, Dennis MacShane, has today resigned as an MP after stealing £20,000 in expenses. This was not a case of a doubtful claim – MacShane actually created, himself, 19 false invoices. Why he has not been prosecuted and jailed is a question well worth discussion. At the time that he stole that money, his long term partner was the journalist
Savile and the Low Hanging Fruit
Talk of “round up the usual suspects”. Gary Glitter and Freddie Starr are not even low-hanging fruit for the Met, they are windfalls. Jimmy Savile’s behaviour was evidently priapistic, and his predeliction for under-age sex, it is plain, was indulged continually in semi-public situations. The risk or exposure, or the thrill of his own incredible immunity, appear to have been part of the enjoym

Pretty much all political today.Matt Romney, Mitt's son, goes to Russia to make money and to deliver a message to President Putin that his father would be more flexible after the election, if he's elected.Was voting for Romney rigged in the primaries? If these analyses are correct, something funny was going on.Two big, and rather good, articles from CNN. They do suffer from the compulsive journali

Your standards of beauty Friday open thread
by liberal japonicus It's nice to have objective standards, so this was heartening. A Chinese beauty contest requiring candidates to have nipples spaced at least 20 centimetres (7.8 inches) apart sparked a storm of criticism on the Internet on Friday. I was wondering if 20 cm was close to some ancient Chinese measure of proportion. However, researching Chinese length, I found they redefined

The Threat of a Stolen Election
Perhaps it's because the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee Americans the right to vote. Perhaps it's because election officials believe (or hope) that the public has forgotten what democracy means or what fair elections are all about. Perhaps both parties opportunistically seek an advantage through fraud. Perhaps people are simply stupid. Nevertheless, it remains an almost inconceivab
Obama, There’s Still Time
It has become undeniably apparent, as I argued in the cover story of In These Times' September issue, that self-identified Independent voters are the largest bloc of movable voters at this final stage of the election campaign. If anyone had any doubt about their volatility, their significance or who they were, the results of an Washington Post/ABC News poll published on October 25, should
A Republican’s Rare Chance to Be a Real Leader
In light of horrific wildfires, a historic drought and now the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy, the political understatement of the year has to be President Obama's recent comment to MTV. Asked about climate change's absence from all presidential debates for the first time in a generation, he said, "I am surprised it didn’t come up." Instead of "surprised" he should h

No Negotiating With Republican Terrorists
By @TedFrier All you really need to know about the state of American politics today is that President Obama has been pilloried by Republicans for the past four years as a wild-eyed radical because of his staunch defense of the status quo. In a sane world such continuity would mark Barack Obama as a "conservative." And indeed, when the political scientists at VoteView dug into the history and talli

Yard Signs Tell The Story Of Mitt Romney’s Campaign
Above you see a picture I took of some political yard signs that I encountered while out and about in Houston last week. The signs tell the story of this election. You vote for Mitt Romney thinking that it will be to your Self-benefit, but the truth is all it will do is help predatory capitalists like Bain Capital.
