Reply to: Terror War Gets New Slogan
So "global struggle against violent extremism" replaces "global war on terror" ? Could this also mean the "last throes of neocons against World peace" (did Dick dig that one ?) or an end to the "global destruction of the American ideal by warmonger fanatics" ? No way Jose : they're talking about "violent extremism", which is so much unlike White House extremism. When a "violent extremist" performs torture, he is attacking civilization. When a White House extremist makes torture legal, he is protecting the nation. It took them four years to realize the solution was "more diplomatic, more economic, more political than it is military" ? It won't take long for the World to remember diplomacy and economy are in the hands of Lobby Dick Cheney while politics remain in the pristine claws of Karl Rove.

Reply to: Coke's Sweet Intentions
IMO both Coke and SCPI are both acting due to selfish reasons. Coke could care less about kid’s health, they just want to avoid lawsuits by pudgy self-hating headline hogging lawyers. SCPI may honestly think they have the public’s best interest at heart, but so did Prohibitionists. In reality they were projecting their own private angst unto social issues only to exerbate the problem. Coke’s approach will probably do less harm in the long run. They shouldn’t mention childhood obesity. The antifat hysteria and moral panic has already taken too much of a toll on kids. Too many already live in terror of getting fat and even 3rd and 4th graders are on diets. Which just leads to weight gain and eating disorders in later life. Concentrating on fitness is also beneficial for all kids as studies not sponsored by the diet industry find that fitness is by far more important than weight for good health. So we don’t have both unfair scapegoating of fat bodies and a false sense of security in sedentary thin kids with junk food habits. (Although I do think it is good they are raising the connection between too much soda and brittle bones. Lost in the fat is the cause of all physical, social, mental political, and economic ills broken record are lesser known risks. p.s I don't know if it is just my computer but leaving a message here is a real pain!

Senator Bob Brown from the Greens is the hero here. The ultra-sensible Mr Brown leads a committed team against the usual corporate thugs, and they guard more than the forest. Firmly opposed to the "war of error' Mr Brown addressed the President directly in the Australian parliament on the issue of Australians held in Guantanamo. Go the Greens!
