Waiting For A Train

Jimmie Rodgers - Waiting For A Train

"The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them." -- George Orwell

Sehr interessantes NZZ interview mit Klaus Theweleit (no clue, who the fuck the guy is, but the interview is good).

Warren Buffett will donate about 31 billion bucks to the Gates foundation, can anyone please tell me how it is ok that someone has so much money. Sorry, but there is something inherently wrong with pure capitalism if it allows people to amass as money because no one can tell me that that is what his work deserved to pay him. I don't care what he does with it btw, that is not the point.

"It is very clear that there are foreign terrorists in Somalia," Jendayi Frazer, the assistant secretary of state for African affairs, told reporters in Nairobi last week. (NY Times) Isn't it wonderful that the US has therefore been funding the local terrorists during the last years? "In recent years, the United States backed a covert program to pay Mogadishu's warlords for their assistance in tracking down those in Somalia with links to terrorism." Alienating the population, until finally an islamic force conquered Somalia? I thought it was difficult to get into the State Department, where do they get all these morons from then?

Last, but not least (sorry):
