A massive croud of about 5000 protesters compleatly overwelms some 600 Egyptian police, pushing them back across a bridge. The American people will never stand in such defiance against their government because the US government would use pain ray vehicles, helicopters, stinger missiles, fifty caliber machine guns, and if that wasn't enough, 500 pound depleted uranium bombs, and nuclear bombs. Under no circumstances would the regime that now enslaves the American people, ever relinquish power.
Violence escalated in two cites outside the capital Cairo on Thursday as anti-government protests continued to grip the country and challenge President Hosni Mubarak's regime, while Egypt's top democracy advocate returned to the country declaring he was ready to lead the grass-roots protest movement to a regime change. In the northern Sinai area of Sheik Zuweid, several hundred Bedouins and police exchanged live gunfire, killing a 17-year-old man. The name of the teenager was confirmed as Mohamed Attef.
I couldn't find statistics for local utility shut offs in my area, but I knew we would start to see more and more of this.
Houses everywhere are going vacant. People don't say goodbye, they don't leave a number, they just disappear. With their disappearance we add another vacant house to the street. But families living in housing without utilities is a new sight for me to behold. I spoke recently with a rep from So Cal Edison who, full time contacts residence who have had their electricity turned off due to non payment. She has a negotiator sent in and they work on a reduced payment. It's amazing to me, that now, it is becoming acceptable in California to camp out in your home.
People are losing their homes, losing their cars and losing their dignity. How are we going to afford kids clothes and school supplies for the coming year? How can we expect families to pay for all these additional costs when the economy is in the shape it in. I ask myself this everyday.

The American foreign policy is at cross-roads. For decades, Washington has advertised equality and human rights in international circles. But, at times, the U.S. has contradicted its own alleged values, philosophy and democratic approach.
Some argue that America's self-interest supersedes the spread of democracy worldwide. However, there are those who say Washington's approach serves neither the national interest of Americans, nor does it promote equality and democracy.
So, the question arises: who then benefits from current American policies?
Press TV's U.S. Desk discussed the issue with Gilad Atzmon who is a political activist, musician and author in London.

On Saturday, January 29, 2011, at noon, an “emergency demonstration” was staged in front of the Egyptian Embassy, in Washington, D.C. It was organized by the ANSWER Coalition and a host of other activist groups in the area. According to the ANSWER Coalition’s press release, the purpose of the rally was to “show solidarity with the Egyptian people” in their struggle to overthrow the “dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak,” who has received for decades “$2 billion a year” in U.S. aid to prop up his “corrupt regime.” This video features Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition.

During President Obama's State of the Union speech, he took a jab at big oil, but stayed away another big recipient of government breaks, Wall Street. While the bailed out banks hand out millions of dollars in executive bonuses, Americans are asking where their bailout is. RT's Ramon Galindo shows us that the foreclosing of America keeps getting worse.
