Ecocide, I'M LOVIN IT! The Dried up Aral Sea Eco-Disaster. www.youtube.com

Anyone going to the play QUAND LA MER by TNO.. Here is a video about the eco-disaster

It is based on a true life eco-crisis affecting the Aral Sea; which was once the 4th largest body of fresh water in the world. You may or may not be aware of severe shrinking of Aral Sea in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.


Greater Sudbury’s Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario’s new coproduction entitled “Quand la mer…” (“When the Sea…”) is based on the true story of the disappearing of the Aral Sea, one of the most striking environmental disasters of all times.

Take a look for yourself at this short You Tube documentary video.

***** This whole thing is a Koch Brother, ALEC, et al, fascist coup attempt - it is quite brilliant, and consummate evil. I don't know how I didn't see it, and I've seen no one write of it. With the gerrymandering of 2010, they 'legally' have placed their terrorists inside the government, and they can't be touched. And their job, what they are being paid to do is to wreck it. Period. The Koch's and other humanoid raptors, they want every tax dollar in their own pockets, and the people destitute, desperate, willing to be slave labor. I'm sure Pr. Obama sees it. I've just seen it. How to stop it? Those districts are impregnable. There must be a way. I don't see it yet.

Obama to Wall Street: This time be worried

Wall Street needs to be genuinely worried about what is going on in Washington, President Barack Obama told CNBC.

***** nd. My concern is all of the cells in the human body now and in the future; NOT just this one cell called me.

MUST MUST READ, AND SHARE: Robert Reich on Shutdown.... They feed off of anger and cynicism.

An old friend, who has been active in politics for more than thirty years, told me yesterday that he was giving up. "I can't stomach what's going on in Washington any more," he said. "The hell with all of them. I have better things to do with my life." My friend is falling exactly into the trap that the extreme right wants all of us to fall into -- such disgust and cynicism that we all give up on politics. Then they're free to take over everything.

Make no mistake: Ted Cruz and his Tea Party followers, and the Koch brothers and their other financial patrons, are relishing this shutdown. They're delighted that 95% of the Environmental Protection Agency is down, so polluters can do whatever they want; that 80% of the Labor Department is down, so unscrupulous employers can trample on their employees; that much of the Securities and Exchange Commission is down, so corporations can have a field day. And they'd like nothing more than a default on the nation's debt in two weeks, because the resulting financial chaos will cause even more of us to become angry and cynical. That's the point: They feed off of anger and cynicism.

Our response should be the opposite: We will not give in to bullies or intimidation, and nor will we give in to cynicism about what our government needs to be and who it needs to serve. We will remain engaged and active, and push every member of Congress as well as the President to remain steadfast.
