    Krugman: Republican disdain workers

     For the fact is that the modern Republican Party just doesn’t have much respect for people who work for other people, no matter how faithfully and well they do their jobs.

    Where does this disdain for workers come from? Some of it, obviously, reflects the influence of money in politics: big-money donors, like the ones Mr. Romney was speaking to when he went off on half the nation, don’t live paycheck to paycheck. But it also reflects the extent to which the G.O.P. has been taken over by an Ayn Rand-type vision of society, in which a handful of heroic businessmen are responsible for all economic good, while the rest of us are just along for the ride.

     In the eyes of those who share this vision, the wealthy deserve special treatment, and not just in the form of low taxes. They must also receive respect, indeed deference, at all times

    7 Mitt Romney Statements As Idiotic as His Libya Response

     In a presidential campaign stretching for months, if not years, it is easy to forget Romney's earlier unfiltered pronouncements or just to dismiss them as gaffes. But the overall pattern is unmistakable. 

    Romney lives in a world where his values are not the same as ordinary people and where he hides behind conservative principles regardless of their impact or harm.the Republican nominee’s political instincts and beliefs are not just out of touch and vague—but actually are dangerous when faced with unscripted tests and crises.

    Hollywood strives to keep its secrets

    A private eye to the stars, jailed 10 years ago for Mafia-style activities, he could spill plenty of beans if he regains his freedom


    "If you saw the stuff I found in celebrity homes: cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, vials of narcotics..." he said at one point. "There was a doctor shooting up celebrities with morphine for $350." Although he refused to name names, citing the Mafia code of omertà, Pellicano did reveal that, in the early 1990s, he helped discredit an erotic wrestler who falsely claimed to have had a gay affair with Tom Cruise. Pellicano added that he'd also worked for Michael Jackson during his 1993 child-molestation case, but "I quit because I found out some truths … He did something far worse to young boys than molest them."

    Mitt Romney's 47% gaffe makes him 100% unsuitable to be president

    Quite simply, Mitt Romney is a bad politician. But on Monday night, we learned something new – and profoundly unsettling – about him: he may very well also be a bad person.

    Worse than the crudeness of Romney's argument is its remarkable lack of social empathy.The United States provides healthcare, food, housing and "you-name-it" to our fellow citizens not as a means of capturing their vote, but because this is fundamental to the basic social compact. That fact seems to elude Romney.

     Earlier this year the sentences against the Pirate Bay defendants were made final. Aside from prison sentences, they will have to pay damages to the entertainment industries, including €550,000 to several major music labels. The court awarded the damages to compensate artists and rightsholders for their losses. However, it now turns out that artists won’t see a penny of the money, as the labels have allocated it to IFPI to fund new anti-piracy campaigns


    Romney arruina su campaña con un vídeo incendiario


     ¿por qué Romney lo dijo? La respuesta apunta, necesariamente, a un candidato en pleno esfuerzo por ganarse la confianza de un partido que identifica el nuevo conservadurismo con un individualismo cruel en el que no se deja ningún espacio a la solidaridad o labor colectiva.

    Zuenir: De tráfico e milicias

    : "O tráfico, tal como atualmente existe, organizado com base no domínio armado de territórios e comunidades, já era, não tem futuro." Ou seja: o modelo carioca, "de pequenos exércitos, armados com fuzis, impondo-se, tiranicamente, às comunidades, é insustentável, é antieconômico, é inteiramente irracional — mesmo do ponto de vista de seus interesses".

    Se fosse preciso exemplificar, aí está a descoberta de que, entre os 25 candidatos a vereador apoiados pelas milícias, há 16 PMs, dois policiais civis e um bombeiro. Isso o tráfico não consegue.

    Shock Me if You Can - can art shock today?

    Shock long ago went mainstream, raising a question: Can art still shock today? Nudity and raw language are no longer scandalous, and decades of Modernist assaults on formal constraints have dissolved the boundary between art and not-art, high and low. The outcry over “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” and “Tropic of Cancer” seems downright quaint at a moment when millions of suburban mothers are devouring the sadomasochistic fantasy “50 Shades of Grey.”

     Today shock can seem indistinguishable from scandal, less a side effect of artistic innovation than a ploy ginned up by self-promoting artists and public scolds. But many artists say that generating shock remains the duty of anyone who aims to reflect the real world back at itself. Audiences may be more sophisticated, and jaded, but it is still possible to show them something they may not want to see. “Conditions in society are shocking, and art really does become a mirror to society in that way,” said the performance artist Karen Finley

    Tawdry pictures. But Kate's role is itself demeaning


    It is, you might think, no excuse for this icky speculation that Kate actively signed up for traditional reproductive services as she did not for topless photography in France, and that no palace functionary has complained that the obsession with her impregnation sets the clock back by 500 years. Even if she is a respected Middleton professional doggedly doing her duty, the speculation is dodgy and potentially, were nothing to emerge, cruel. To date, however, radio phone-ins have not gone mad with indignation, media specialists have not distanced themselves from their stomach-examiner colleagues and a Mr Evgeny Lebedev, owner of the London Evening Standard and the Independent, has not vented, along with hundreds of others on Twitter, about "gutter press morality". The main objection to the photographs in Closer is that they were taken somewhere – minus, obviously, their staff and protection officers – where the couple had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

    Mother Jones SECRET VIDEO: Romney Tells Millionaire Donors he doesnt care about half of America

    : Here was Romney raw and unplugged—sort of unscripted. With this crowd of fellow millionaires, he apparently felt free to utter what he really believes and would never dare say out in the open. He displayed a high degree of disgust for nearly half of his fellow citizens, lumping all Obama voters into a mass of shiftless moochers who don't contribute much, if anything, to society, and he indicated that he viewed the election as a battle between strivers (such as himself and the donors before him) and parasitic free-riders who lack character, fortitude, and initiative. Yet Romney explained to his patrons that he could not speak such harsh words about Obama in public, lest he insult those independent voters who sided with Obama in 2008 and whom he desperately needs in this election. These were sentiments not to be shared with the voters; it was inside information, available only to the select few who had paid for the privilege of experiencing the real Romney.

    The terrible legacy of Agent Orange - Asia - World - The Independent

    Forty years after war ended, Washington begins decontamination of worst-affected areas in Vietnam


    Between 1962 and 1971, the US air force dropped around 20 million gallons of the herbicide during Operation Ranch Hand. Around 4,000 villages and communes in South Vietnam were sprayed, leaving at least 4.5 million Vietnamese exposed to the substance, according to census reports taken at the time. Five million acres of farmland were destroyed in the process (the size of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Northumberland combined), of which two million remain barren today.

    Early on in the campaign, US planes dropped pamphlets written in Vietnamese assuring farmers that the chemicals were harmless to humans and animals. In spite of alleged warnings from chemical companies that the herbicide was potentially harmful, the US reportedly dropped the chemical at a higher concentration than what was recommended for destroying foliage.
     As a result, the Vietnam Red Cross estimates that three million Vietnamese were left suffering from spina bifida, Parkinson's and heart diseases.

    Great art needs a few restoration disasters

    Thanks to an inadvertent iconoclast, a second-rate fresco is now a 'masterpiece'. Turn her loose on artists that deserve attention

     Google Martinez and you will find many, many references that have appeared in the last 24 hours to the botched restoration – and not much else. A previously obscure artist has become famous overnight because of the amateur restorer's exploit. A forgotten painting is now known around the world as a "masterpiece", because it was wrecked.

    Perhaps this offers a new strategy for those who seek to popularise the Old Masters. What if even older, but far greater, paintings were to get the Mr Bean treatment?

    10 Rankest Hypocrisies of Mitt Romney and the Republican Party | Alternet

    Their hypocrisy has reached historic proportions. It’s as if they have lost the ability to recognize the obvious contradictions they put forth. Or, more likely, they just don’t care, since lies and hypocrisy are an efficient way to score political points and smear opponents.

    A origem do medo

    Estou chegando à conclusão de que o quadro mais poderoso do mundo não é a célebre Mona Lisa, de Leonardo da Vinci, ou o contundente Guernica, de Picasso, e sim A Origem do Mundo, de Courbet.

    É ela quem mais incomoda, assusta, causa sobressaltos, levando a censuras e tentativas de omiti-la, de se desviar os olhares...

    como acontece em locais sociais como o Facebook, ao deletar a conta de um usuário por publicá-la, e em várias outros lugares, como,surpreendentemente, aqui.

    Mr Brainwash: Banksy's street-art protégé and his latest brainwave

    “If I want to piss on a canvas and call it art, I’ll do it,” Mr Brainwash tells me, in all seriousness, his eyes aflame with zeal. He propels himself through the conversation like a Duracell Bunny on steroids, wearing paint-spattered jeans and hoodie. His legs jiggle, his arms flap, he jumps up and down and uses his hands to draw in the air.
