What California's Orca Bill Would Mean For San Diego's SeaWorld

Sea World is desperate and will say or do anything to protect its bottom line. Want to learn how orcas are meant to live? The real "Sea World" is right off of our coast. Would aliens studying humans look at them out in society or in prison? Sea World, wake up already! The tide of public opinion has turned against your big-time. Expect a giant propaganda fight by this soulless and greedy corporation. They will surely try to buy legislators as well. Moneyed and selfish interests do that all of the time.

Occupy San Diego Moves Online, Continues Mission

The six heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune are worth as much as nearly half of all American households.

The Walton family was worth $89.5 billion in 2010, the same as the bottom 41.5 percent of U.S. families combined, according to Josh Bivens of the Economic Policy Institute. That's 48.8 million American households in total.

The wealth divide is getting worse, as Wal-Mart pays its workers minimum wage, and schedules them part time so they don't have to pay a dime for their health care, knowing that the U.S. taxpayers will pick up the tab for the emergency room visits when they have a life-threatening condition.

The Occupy movement energized many people, who are still involved personally and with activist organizations to restore at least a portion of that old "American Dream" to those who are doing worst by the new economy. Much remains to be done.

Pvt. Bradley Manning To Be Questioned By Prosecutors In WikiLeaks Case

Bradley Manning has had enough punishment. His only crime was exposing the truth, and that is why he has been exposed to such horrid conditions. Time served is more than enough of a sentence, Bradley Manning deserves to walk out a free man, and in so many others' eye's a true patriot and hero.

Hoaxes, Satire, Art: What Crosses The Line Legally

This concept is wonderful. Corporations and gov't lie to us every day with impunity. Goliath gets upset about what's put out, Too bad. Let's hear it for the Davids amongst us who pull this off.

Roundtable: Balboa Park, Bridgepoint, Backcountry Wildlife Killings

I believe that it was unwise for our elected city council to follow the money, but I guess that's all we can expect of them. I don't think Jacobs philanthropy should have swayed their vote so much. Balboa Park belongs to the people, not our elected "misreresentatives" or the Qualcomm billionaire. The caller that said he should have directed it toward homeless services instead was spot on. How can we build ugly parking garages in Balboa Park and segregate it from our less well-off brothers and sisters who can barely feed the kids, let alone pay to park, when some of them are not even having their needs met. Disappointing, council members. your priorities are bass ackwards. Let’s take care of our people, give them a hand up not a hand out.

New Super PAC Defending Against Defense Cuts

Our defense budget is insanity - there is absolutely no reason why we need to spend as much as the rest of the world combined for defense spending. Who is the enemy? Maybe Mexico next door will launch an all out attack on us. I hear that Canada is gettin' kinda pissed off at us as well. Hey we're not flexin' enough muscle. Lets' pick another country to invade. CNN needs more news stories, that's why.

Wake up America! We pout billions down the drain on war and prisons
while our schools are despicably under funded.

Duncan Hunter has $$$ and war in his eyes, a slab of granite instead of a heart, and trigger-happy fingers for digits.

Peace...
