Thursday as Israel flatly rejected a US and Palestinian demand that it stop settlement construction in the Occupied West Bank. An end to settlements was a top priority for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as he sat down with Obama Thursday. The Gaza Strip, which the Jews grabbed, and in this same 1967 War the Jews also grabbed all of Jerusalem. This whole part occupied by the Jews here is called the West Bank.--The West Bank of the Jordan River. This was Jordanian land, it was a part of Jordan, until the 1967 War, at which time the Israelis grabbed all of this, the Gaza Strip, Jerusalem and the entire West Bank of the Jordan River. So now the Israelis have all of Jerusalem and these other areas, and they're populating it as fast as they can, putting settlements in there as fast as they can so they can say, this part was given by the U.N. to the Jews, and this part is part of the land which was supposed to have been given by the U.N. to the Palestinians.

The Obama administration plans to take the next step in its efforts to resuscitate the American auto industry, sending General Motors, the storied manufacturer, into bankruptcy protection this morning.
The court filing in New York - will mark the end of financial independence for the 100-year-old industrial leviathan that once conflated its interests with the country's and that employed more than 1 million people, counting jobs at the company and at its suppliers.The purpose of the bankruptcy is to restructure the automaker, as the government has been attempting do with Chrysler, having GM emerge from the process smaller, with fewer brands, less debt - but also more viable.
We owe $11,326,098,943,773. The deficit will hit $1,000,000,000,000 trillion in the 2009 budget year.It's a drop in the bucket compared to what we owe and how much more we owing every year. The politicians are all preaching everything's hunky-dory, everything is recovering, everything is good, then you know they've got to be lying. Somebody's lying, because it couldn't be that good with all these huge corporations and governments folding and going bankrupt!
I mean that shows you how people panic if they lose faith in a government.The Crash has been going on for years, but eventually it hits bottom and goes right through the bottom and the bottom falls out and finito!--And this time I am convinced it's going to be finito to the present economic, monetary and capitalistic system. So it could happen any day!
