I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

A case of fraud!

Over at Willapa Bay Arthur has managed to put what I've been thinking into words. Go read the entire thing but I'll give you a few snips.
Denial of the need for economic decisions and actions that could slow or reverse global warning and a deteriorating global ecology is a fraud-in-progress.

The so-called "overhaul" to rescue Social Security is fraud-in-progress.

Tax cuts disguised as tax reform is another fraud-in-progress.

Personal "onership" of a means by which we can afford health care is another fraud-in-progress - just as the Medicare Reform Bill was a fraud-much-further-in-progress.

Suppression of wages, unions and employee retirement plans as a means of "growing the economy" is another fraud-in-progress.
And this:
These are part of the larger overall fraud of a religion that is the equal of Christianity among wealthier and corporate Americans. Led by the ilk of economic theologies spewing forth from an assortment of corporate-sponsored think tanks and theoretical strategists of the Grover Norquist ilk, the economic theology of number-crunched corporate capitalism is as sterile and empty as the whited-sepulchre of literal Christianity's 'innerant and absolute Bible."

Both are fixed and inflexible ideologies built upon concepts and extrapolations now turned to stone. Neither take into account the most powerful force that always successfully resists mindless adherence to a fixed dogma ... human nature.
Go read the rest.
