The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

I am sitting in an internet cafe in Silver City, New Mexico. It's a mining town and in the hills surrounding the area you can see the results of years of devastation to the environment. Mountains of tailings from the mine are washed away by the rain and pollute the local water and blow through the air. The state is trying to force the mining corporations to cover the stripped off land but as usual the corporations resist doing the right thing in order to save their investors some money.

I spoke here last night and this morning did a 40 minute live community access cable TV interview on The Morning Show hosted by two local women activists. It was fun and I was able to really get into the whole corporate domination plans for space and the planet below.

Later today I will be taken to Las Cruces where I speak this evening. Las Cruces is near the White Sands Missile Testing Range where the military is doing space laser weapons testing.

The weather here is sunny and about 60 degrees. Driving through the mountain pass on the way here yesterday there was some snow on the ground but not much of it. People say it has been real cold lately but just as I arrive it warms up.

Like every place else folks are talking about Obama - is he or isn't he for real? I refer people to a recent interview by Amy Goodman with Allan Nairn about Obama's foreign and military policy advisers. One name mentioned by Nairn is Gen. Merrill McPeak who was the former commander of the U.S. Space Command.

It is clear to me that Obama would never have been allowed to ascend as far as he has if he was a serious "change" agent.
