Feels like we are going in the wrong direction... unward and downward. Our president makes a meaningless agreement with China. They can continue to increase their fossil fuel polution until 2030! Then they must ramp down... too late and who is going to make them comply? Good luck with that. President Obama has made an agreement with a dictatorship...? Come on. He must have a backup plan... Oh yea, it won't be his problem... he will be retired and on the speech making, money making tour long before that deadline. Then comes the vote in the House. Yes, to the Keystone pipeline! Can we sink lower? Yes, to that too! Our economic imperitive is, make money at all costs. And Devil take the hindmost!

IN South Africa Chinese 'become black'
The High Court in South Africa has ruled that Chinese South Africans are to be reclassified as black people.
It made the order so that ethnic Chinese can benefit from government policies aimed at ending white domination in the private sector.
The Chinese Association of South Africa took the government to court, saying its members had been discriminated against.An estimated 200,000 ethnic Chinese live in South Africa.
The association said their members often failed to qualify for business contracts and job promotions because they were regarded as whites.
The association said Chinese South Africans had faced widespread discrimination during the years of apartheid when they had been classified as people of mixed race.
The BBC's Mpho Lakaje in Johannesburg says the Broad-Based Economic Empowerment and the Employment Equity Acts were designed to eradicate the legacy of apartheid which left many black people impoverished.
IN AMERICA ONE WORD 'SOVEREIGNTY'
In general terms, we understand sovereignty to mean a nation's independence from other governments, and its freedom of choice to act politically. In history, there are many examples of sovereignty concentrated in a single ruler like the tsar-autocrats of Russia, or the French King Louis XIV, who declared, "I am the state." But states today have elaborate procedures that decentralize their sovereignty, for example, through periodic elections, independent courts, etc. For a constitutional republic like the United States, our sovereignty also includes an important central element described in the phrase, "Congress shall make no law.... "
Russia and China are moving closer together for several reasons including geostrategic, political, and economic interests. So what? They all have a common theme of diminishing, subverting, or displacing American power and possibly creating a new superpower. Journalist Melik Kaylan has been following the situation closely and will be on to discuss. Tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
