The first link is a post talking about the democrats ideas on abortion which i feel that is left up to the person, but democrats strongly disagree in this article. The second link is an article that talks more about the idea of veterans and other poor people, notice war veterans and poor people seem to a be their own social class now, should recieve better health care at the cost of  the rich.

http://www.freepress.org/departments/display/17/2009/3613

I personally haven't seen this film but i don't really like michael moore's films i feel that he is working for some one to make these films. i also feel he doesnt put all the information in to these films. but the films idea is good to show how capitolism iis taking over and how social classes are what feeds the rich man his dinner.

chris A.'s repost 10/29

There needs to be more planning of train routes in india. There was an unplanned colision in india killing 22 and injured 26. but like chris said there really isn't much you can do if your in this position. you might be able to to jump out but  your still gonna get hurt.

At least 22 dead as trains collide in IndiaA train collision in northern India killed at least 22 people early Wednesday. There was also 26 injured people, these two trains went head to head cause one train over shot a signle to stop. I think that train crashes are really intense, just think if you where the poistion and there was nothing you can do to stop it from crashing...

21-year-old steals ambulance http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33278556
A 21-year-old man stole a parked ambulance that had been parked near a bar. The ambulance was parked while medics responded to a minor medical injury nearby. He led the police on a brief lowspeed chace before crashing the ambulance. He was charged with theft of an ambulance and driving under the influence.

---i think anyone who is dumb enough to steal an ambulance should go jump off a cliff. plus what if there was 20 car pile up a block away he would have let that go on with no medics around. he would have been stuck with those deaths or injuries in  that pile up.

http://www.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUSTRE59L0MK20091022

This article talks about the recent infiltration by the taliban in to the Pakistani army. They went into their armies land and killed multiple generals and ended it off with many killings and suicide bombings on the street. this attack left over 150 people dead. Ahmed, whose rank is equivalent to a U.S. brigadier-general is the second senior officer to be killed in less than two weeks following a commando-style raid on army headquarters in Rawalpindi.These attacks left the stock market exposed in pakistan and is leaving a big footprint on it and will probably stay there as long as the war is goin on.

Fraud inquiry slashes Karzai vote to 48%, setting stage for runoff 10/21
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/19/un-monitor-strips-karzai-victory

I find this article very interesting, the fact that, that many votes  got put on the wrong side of the election in aphganistan to be very suspicious. If  we really just deployed that many troops to afghanistan in hope that they would have better lives and so we can make money of their resources, but it seems only the money part is working.Well for the rich anyways. But if the US really needs to deploy  40,000 more troops to afghanistan then this whole election or even idea of democracy is just a fraud to keep us over sees looking for the riches of their land GOD BLESS AMERICA.

White House advisers say Fox News is not news 10/16http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/6369801/White-House-advisers-say-Fox-News-is-not-news.html

This article from telegraph.co.uk has claims that fox news is not a news organization at all. They said that  business should not be allowed to conform people's ideas with such one sided news."The comment came after Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, said Fox News operated "almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party"."is a quote from the article and I agree strongly. I agree that they should show more of the story but i feel this article is another white house news company competing with fox and in search of money.

This article is not so surprising. It talks about how citi banks are slowly going to the bankruptcy side of things. And even with an income of $101 million  came before it accounted for $288 million in preferred dividends and a debt exchange that gave Washington 34 percent. Yet as other banks prosper with their winnings of the struggling economy citi banks are gettin down in the dumps. But if you ask let all the banks close we dont need them.

http://www.theonion.com/content/news/thousands_of_abandoned_foreclosed

in response to this article, i find that karma is going to have its way with the banks. there is a 120 million dollar storm of damage brewing in florida. but its alright the the banks already kicked every body out of there homes so the only ones needing to worry are the banks. but besides that i hope the population is safe so when the bank go bankrupt the population might live without interest rates long enough to get some nice homes without the banks.

 Obama: Health Care Plan Would Give Seniors Right To Choose How They Are Killed 10/7
http://www.theonion.com/content/news/obama_health_care_plan_would_give

this address from the president doesnt quite shock me as it should even though its the onion. the prez. talked about how the new health care reform will allow the older population to choose how they are murdered as the savior of the rest of the economy. "Under my plan, seniors are going to be killed the way they want to be killed, end of story," said the president, who acknowledged that "wiping out" the nation's elderly population has always been his No. 1 priority. "If your grandmother would rather be euthanized in the privacy of her own home than be gutted and hanged on a high school soccer field, she is entitled to that right." quoted by the prez.(the onion). as sick as that sounds its even more that i can believe this actually happening in
