Mass Murder in Kandahar: Tip of the Iceberg in Afghanistan; Warning for US Society

As an adult, Staff Sergeant Roger Bales – the accused butcher of 16 Afghan men, women and children – never was a very nice person. He only joined the US military after he was caught having bilked a retired couple out of their life savings. He has been accused of hit-and-run driving and assault on […]

A modest proposal: update US Bill of Rights to 2012 NDAA ‘law’

Credit to the incisive Video Rebel – home here; my contribution is adding a few links and minor edits. Of course, Occupy’s endgame is not to surrender  the US Constitution, but to demand arrests of the criminal 1% attempting to destroy it. When education like Video Rebels causes critical mass among the 99% to recognize […]

OUR SUCCESSFUL DEMOCRACY ABROAD

By Saul Landau “There have been charges that it is morally wrong for the U.S. to aid undemocratic regimes to strengthen their security systems, thereby serving to entrench them in power.” But “the U.S. cannot afford the moral luxury of helping only those regimes in the free world that meet our ideals of self-government. Eliminate […]

Revolt, Americans: War is illegal

Source: Carl Herman, Examiner.com Because war law is so clear in letter and intent, and US “reasons” for current wars not even close to lawful and now uncontested as lies known to be lies as they were told, we can rationally and confidently conclude that “leadership” from both parties and corporate media are complicit in […]

So, You Think You Have A Chance? Ha!

How Dumb Are (you) We?

There is actually an organization, a large effort to tell people what national media isn’t.  What is wrong with this picture?  News that isn’t.  Where is uncle Walter when we need him? This country has been at war now for ten years.  TEN YEARS folks, what is up with that?  Worse, we are not at […]

Petraeus: Spinmeister at Large

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs caused a furor last week when he called out media talking heads as the “professional left” suggesting they be “drug tested.” It’s unlikely that steroids are what Gibbs had in mind, but steroids have been the drug of choice for this administration when it comes to foreign policy. Gibbs’ idea of […]

It is alll coming apart, now! New Jersey will close down the government! This is what the libertarians want

It is all coming apart, now.  Governments are crashing all over the US.  The neo-cons have renamed themselves!  They are now `libertarians`.  They anchor their ideology behind words but their policies are the same — serfdom, dictatorship — a full onslought against the working class.  We must organize, we must mobilize for we are living […]

It Is Time To Reconsider Our "Wars"

There was a great article in the N Y Times about our future in Afghanistan and our “War on Terror.”  I have extrapolated data from that article as I believe it relates to us.  Since this war is taking our resources that we badly need at home, we need to take a closer look.  At […]
