Soda Stream is a popular little machine. Makes our life bubbly. But it's made in an illegal settlement in the West Bank, and all such companies must be brought to their senses by the diversion of our dollars to their competitors.

Check out this fantastic little tiny homemade SodaStream Spoof Ad by Amal, produced by St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee. This teen puts SodaStream's marketing to shame. Mondoweiss

Anti-gun control protesters admit that the reason they believe they should be permitted to own automatic-and semi-automatic rifles is not for hunting or skeet shooting or personal pleasure but to be ready to shoot at police and others representing the government insisting that the gun owners register their weapons or that certain guns are to be made unlawful and seized. They truly believe that Obama is planning to seize all guns to facilitate the creation of a socialist/fascist/collectivist police state.

Jesus, Freedom and Guns By LAWRENCE DOWNES, New York Times, Jan. 31, 2013

Here is a video shot at a gun-rights rally on Jan. 19 at the Arizona state Capitol in Phoenix. It’s a good window into the life of Arizona, a state where the Tea Party, birtherism and anti-immigrant radicalism regularly combine to raise the political temperature from overheated to boiling.

Once again we can conclude that President Obama for all his talk about the Rule of Law that he in fact tends to cherry pick which laws to obey. Obama has gone after whistleblowers with a vengeance and after those who like Aaron Swartz want to keep the internet as free from censorship as possible .

Julian Assange of Wikileaks is seen by the Obama administration as America's no. 1 enemy . Julian Assange's and Wikileaks crime is that they are in favor of freedom of information and against government's unnecessarily classifying as " secret " without justification documents which should be available to the public .

Obama as candidate in 2008 was supposedly in favor of legislation to protect whisleblowers and insist on more transparency and less secrecy by the government. But as president Obama has acted in favor of prosecuting Whistleblowers as if they were spies and enemies of the state. This is understandable since Obama has continued and added to the illegal or unethical or immoral actions and policies of the Bush administration. This would as we have discussed many times explain why Obama did not insist on real substantive investigations into the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the Bush Regime since he is now guilty of similar crimes besides the crime of shielding from justice those who committed these crimes previous to his taking office.

Obama has widened the Global War on Terror and has introduced legislation and policies further undermining the freedom of American citizens. Obama has shown in his draconian response to the Occupy Movement that he is on the side of Wall Street's thieves , thugs and banksters, lobbyists and others who committed criminal acts or at least engaged in unethical practices robbing trillions of dollars from the US government and the American people. Obama over and over again has sided with the rich and powerful and has shown himself to be an enemy of average Americans just like his predecessors who favored the rich and powerful.

One has to wonder if Obama has defended these crooks on Wall Street because they happen to be friends of his part of the autocracy or because he doesn't want to do anything that might harm his own personal investment portfolio.
