Huge margin for left in Greece! 61% vs. 39% rejects bailout terms; its role in EU hangs in the balance - LA Times - http://www.latimes.com/world/europe/la-fg-greece-referendum-20150705-story.html
Greece entered an even more volatile phase of its financial crisis early Monday after voters resoundingly voted no on a referendum on a European bailout plan whose rejection could now determine the country’s financial fate in the short term and its role in Europe in the long term.

Today’s telecommunications giant, Google, is worth $370 billion but has only about 55,000 employees—less than a tenth the size of AT&T’s workforce in its heyday. Tomorrow, Robots & the Second age of Machines. 
For centuries, experts have predicted that machines would make workers obsolete. That moment may finally be arriving. Could that be a good thing?

Clinton Foundation / Boeing & Saudi Arabia

Incredible. "..These were not the only relationships bridging leaders of the two nations. In the years before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia contributed at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation, the philanthropic enterprise she has overseen with her husband, former president Bill Clinton. Just two months before the deal was finalized, Boeing -- the defense contractor that manufactures one of the fighter jets the Saudis were especially keen to acquire, the F-15 -- contributed $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to a company press release.

The Saudi deal was one of dozens of arms sales approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department that placed weapons in the hands of governments that had also donated money to the Clinton family philanthropic empire, an International Business Times investigation has found.

Under Clinton's leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure -- derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) -- represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term..."

Boola. Boola. USA! USA! Televised sports (esp. American football, a Yale Skull & Bones creation to aid/abet the American war machine) desensitize Americans/Westerners ( increasingly women as well as men) to real violence and indoctrinate passive submission to US military & corporate authority structures. They are a prime example of social engineering, national states' indoctrination systes. Like much of the mainsteam media's mental bandwidth distractors/sap points, televized sports offers American consumers yet another charade to pay attention to that's of no importance. This keeps them from worrying about things that matter to their lives (politics) that they might have some idea of doing something about. Sports ultimately further irrational behavior, ie norms of passive submission to authority structures (generally white men on a field "coaching" minorities as they wage war on each other). Sports (like organized religion) reinforces tribal jingoism and truly is a form of Roman colliseum type social engineering.

American Football's use --- in Amerikkka -- as a tool of social engineering and encouraging passive submission by minorities/working class to white authority structures (coaches) extends the growing use of football in Amerikkka to perpetuate a war culture. In particular, violence on the international level. The language of football and the language of war are quite interlinked. In fact, CNNs account of the Gulf War was laden with football analogies. And so too, with the US attack on Afghanistan. Rugby & Connecticut Yankees from King Arthur's Masonic Court...Sigh. Football -- metaphor for Amerikkka's New Roman Empire/Pax Amerikkkana, courtesy of Skull & Bones and the NWO chaps. Reflecting this morning on NWO and Walter Camp's founding of the sport (shaping of nmodern "American" style football / warfare simulator), & his membership in Skull & Bones. For those who don't know, "The 'Father of American Football' was Skull and Bones member, Walter Camp, who took the Masonic-Anglo "rugby" and created the American version of the sport to keep the population entertained, help sever the pyrmaid top (Amerikkka) from the football/slave labor & resource circuitry outside and out of the way of the government." By the age of 33, twelve years after graduating from Yale, Walter Camp had already become known as the "Father of Football". By 1892, Camp had almost single-handedly fashioned the game of modern American football.

...With two-thirds of the votes counted, “no” had won 60 percent -- a landslide for the government if that result holds up. By evening, thousands of government supporters converged on central Athens’ Syntagma Square to wave Greek flags and celebrate victory.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and others in his radical leftist administration had campaigned vigorously for voters to spurn an offer from creditors that he repeatedly described as “blackmail.” He had gambled that the public would back him, giving him the leverage to go back to the bargaining table and win a better deal...
The vote is a victory for the Greek government in its showdown with European creditors who demanded greater austerity.
