USA: Cutting GAO budgets a guaranteed way to waste even more

link to article
Almost every western country is currently developing or has implemented plans to reduce administrative overheads and cost of government services. Often this happened by just reducing service levels and extent instead of looking for ways to spend the government money more wisely.

Sometimes such blunt tactics shed a light on the true intentions behind some of these “cost cuttings” – quick & dirty fixes, reduce social benefits and put even more pressure and fear into the majority of citizens.

Cost cuttings are seen across all areas of government services not stopping even with closing hospitals, fire services or massive cuts with other essential services.

AIDS: Liberia Vice

link to article
During the last days VBS.TV has made a series of videos available created by them while traveling in Liberia (so far mainly Monrovia and surroundings) and talking to local journalists, war lords, slum inhabitants and other “normal people“. A story about civil war, drugs, AIDS, child soldiers, rape, daily killing, corruption, cannibalism… – it shows how deep the rabbit hole goes in one of the poorest countries and failed states on this planet.

The series comprises 8 short videos with different stations of their “travel” through Liberia of which so far 4 are online on their site.
What they have so far not covered is how much foreign aid is sunk into this country and what actually happens with it…

Climate-Change: Copenhagen and now?

link to article
So the vast “show and photo opportunity” meeting in Copenhagen is coming to an end now and could someone please tell what has actually been achieved in this huge media event.

A 3 page document with some teasers but now clear road-map on who-does-what-and-when. The talks on atomic weapons between the U.S. and Russia that happened at the same venue might prove to be more outcome oriented then that other show.

Will the bankster be allowed to expand their casino games with derivatives / virtual money creation for them to the so-called “Cap & Trade” certificates and thereby will most certainly create a world-wide crisis that will be bigger by orders of magnitude than the current financial crisis?

Will someone start to limit the global levels of pollution instead of fostering opaque trading schemes that are only good for story telling and profiteering – read: the industrialized nations reduced their pollutions – e.g. by 30% while at the same time the polluters have just shifted those factories somewhere else where these are then for whatever reason not counted into the scheme?

Will the whole thing like in other areas e.g. pandemics be handled by some kind of fund or financial instrument that in the past have regularly proven to be the most inefficient way, without any accountability or actual transparency, blowing money on themselves and their buddies, often institutionalized corruption and rates as bad as US$ 1000 put in and a mere US$10 arriving at the actual cause?

Well let’s see what the soon to happen next meeting in Berlin will bring…

Climate Change: Those hacked e-mails

link to article
Some more facts about “those leaked climate change emails” that have mobilized all those figures now claiming there’s nothing to be frightened about – its all a “scam” – you name it – well you know – just carry on watching TV – you know like the GOOOOOD people.

Yes Bernie that’s how you got those 50 billions but we’re not sure that this also works with mass manipulation.

And in completely unrelated news by these maSS-manipulators – the leading industrial nations – might be again announced during the Copenhagen photo opportunity – have agreed to shell out USD 10 Billions per year to fight those “non-existing” threats to human race on this planet – providing those monies to countries who are hardest hit by climate change – small island states – developing countries with long and low coast lines – i.e. BangLadesh – but don’t worry – nothing to fear here – move on – and if that won’t help – well there is still “duck and cover” that worked so well in the 1950s with the atomic bribery…

– So grandma is fine – and she lived for almost 80 years now – there ain’t no warming – she always says she’s feeling cold…
