Hola. El 31 de diciembre de 2012. GOP and Feinstein join to fulfill Obama’s demand for renewed warrantless eavesdropping. The California Democrat’s disgusting rhetoric recalls the worst of Dick Cheney while advancing Obama’s agenda.

Hola. El 28 de diciembre de 2012. If you’d like a better understanding of this “fiscal cliff” theatre performance coming from the U.S. Corporatocracy (continuing their charade as two parties), please read this article:
On the eve of the “fiscal cliff,” Democrats, Republicans prepare major cuts in workers’ wages, benefits.
Also, there’s this:
US Congress drops measure banning indefinite detention of US citizens.
And this:
White House, Congress extend police-state FISA law. The article reads, “The FISA Amendments Act of 2012 passed by a 73-23 margin, with large majorities of Democrats (31-20) and Republicans (42-3) supporting it.”

Hola. El 26 de diciembre de 2012. I’ve updated my article “Bush’s Fourth Term,” adding to it an article written the other day by Ted Rall. Read more here…

Hola. El 24 de diciembre de 2012. Someone locally (in San Francisco) wrote a comment on our “San Francisco’s Fading Gay Mecca” article and I’ve put their comment up at the top of that article page because I thought they had some very valid points that I’ve heard other people express. You can read it here….. Chau.—rosa barrio

Mayan Calendar End Of World (el 21 de diciembre de 2012) Update
Hola. El 21 de diciembre de 2012. This is a “Mayan Calendar End of World Update” from the pink barrio’s “what is is.” First, don’t miss the colorful LED light show in the background which we see throughout the year from time-to-time (whenever “what is is” turns them on). Well, we’re still here. He checks some things out in The City (San Francisco) to see if we’re all still here. “what is is” was able to make contact with Ms. Maple Gas and according to Ms. Gas the Mayan Calendar event is….well he explains it. (See the “Peak Oil Noticias/News Update” videos from September/October 2012 for some information about Ms. Maple Gas, por favor). He explains the previously scheduled Boardánce that didn’t take place due to “technical difficulties.” A Boardánce is similar to a séance, but instead it’s conducted on The Board that “what is is” uses in his videos. He elaborates on planetary alignment for clear Boardánce communications and gives us a clearer view of the LED Light Show. And just so there is no confusion whatsoever with anyone viewing this video, this video is intended ENTIRELY as sarcasm and humour. Chau.—rosa barrio

Mayan Calendar End Of World (el 19 de diciembre de 2012) Update

El 19 de diciembre de 2012. Hola. In the video below is an “End of World” (Mayan Calendar) Update from the pink barrio’s “what is is.” First, he goes to The Board. If the infrastructure in the sacred La Ciudad de San Francisco (the City of Saint Francis) gives any clue as to the Earth cracking for the end of the world, things don’t look good. Although las margaritas púrpura (purple daisies) are beautiful. And he reminds viewers that if the mundo/world does end, no need to do any more preparation for that perfunctory greed-fest holiday known as el 25 de diciembre (the 25th of December/Navidad). He will cover the world ending in another update, if and when it does happen.—rosa barrio

Peak Oil News Update December 18, 2012

Hola. El 18 de diciembre de 2012. “what is is” begins today’s “peak oil noticias update” (below) with noticias about the Keystone XL Pipeline. He shows us pretty margaritas amarillas (yellow daisies) blooming en diciembre/December in San Francisco. He moves on to a poll regarding the XL Pipeline and the results of that. He then updates on the barges on la Bahía de San Francisco, Brent Crude Futures pricing and petro prices in San Francisco near the pink barrio. He talks about the prediction about el mundo/the world ending on el 21 de diciembre de 2012. My guess is that we’ll all still be around on el 22 de diciembre de 2012. He asks: “Are you against the end of the world?” And there are protests on The Board (the white board that he uses for these updates). Chau.—rosa barrio

Peak Oil News Update December 10, 2012
Hola. El 10 de diciembre de 2012. In the video below is a “Peak Oil Noticias/News Update” from the pink barrio’s “what is is.”

He begins with noticias/news related to sanctions against Iran and the Estados Unidos/U.S. list of waivers (a total of 21 countries). He has a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge in this video. He tells us about a couple of heroes, Matt Almonte and Glen Collins, who crawled into the Keystone XL/TransCanada’s pipeline as a protest. He updates on the barges on San Francisco Bay (updating from the Marin County side of the Bay). And he updates on the petro prices in San Francisco near the pink barrio. What used to be the “cheap gas station” has become a location for rental cars. He updates on Brent Crude Futures. He also updates on the debris field from Nihon (Japón/Japan) from the disastrous earthquake they had. So Alaska is going to be turned into fracking fields? One should expect that these days; I know I do. Chau.—rosa barrio

Peak Oil News Update December 7, 2012
Hola. El 7 de diciembre de 2012. In the video below is a “Peak Oil Noticias/News Update” from the pink barrio’s “what is is.” He begins this update talking about YouTube (we call it CorporateTube since the “You” part disappeared when the site was sold to Google) and their unnecessary changes. “what is is” then talks about noticias/news for videos he didn’t get to do since the last video. He shows a video clip from a recent heavy-rain storm in San Francisco and the amount of water in la calle. He returns to the topic of CorporateTube and their attempt to make the site look more like that corporate social networking site (FB)? Why would CorporateTube do that? He then updates on the barges on la Bahía de San Francisco as well as Brent Crude Futures. “what is is” responds to a comment left by a viewer on a previous (Marzo de 2012) video. He also updates on the petro prices near the pink barrio, and what is going on with the “inexpensive gas station” he’s been using as a source for his videos? The iPad Mini Case he showed at the end of the video can be found below this video. Chau.—-rosa barrio
