"At the Rappahannock Regional Jail in Stafford, Va., jail officials allegedly cut out Bible references from a letter a woman wrote to her son who is an inmate in the jail. On at least one occasion, all that was left of her three-page letter was the salutation, the first paragraph, and the words "Love, Mom." "
I tell you, how much more blatant can it be in this country? How long will we stand for this nonsense? Have we lost all of the sense given us?… Continue
England is in the grip of a Swine Flu epidemic. People are dropping like flies. The foul stench of rotting carcasses piling up in the streets is overpowering. Such is the horror now that society has broken down and the dead outnumber the living. How could things have been allowed to reach this point? Why oh why, oh, hang on, erm, well, actually - they… Continue

The US government has sent a strong message to Iran, saying it is running out of time to engage in dialogue over its nuclear programme to avoid further isolation or even military action.
Warning that Washington would only grant Iran a limited amount of time to respond to its offer to hold talks, Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, said: "The choice is clear: we remain ready to engage with Iran, but the time for action is now. The opportunity will not remain open… Continue
The following individuals whose primary goal in life is socking away more dollars than they can ever spend and who are very typically borderline sociopaths, yet believe they have a voice in deciding whether over 300 million American people should know just whose interests the Fed so staunchly protects, have issued an open letter to Congress and The Executive Branch, demanding that no one ever dare have audit powers over the private institution that is the Federal Reserve.'
I'd just like to say that if there is political strife, upheaval or antagonism anywhere in the world one can be certain, without proof, that Washington has a big hand in it and especially if Democracy and human rights are being depressed. It's the way the CIA and other covert US operators work. But here's the proof for this one.
The US Department of State had prior knowledge of the coup. The Department of State and the US Congress funded and advised the actors and organisations in… Continue
It is surely the biggest Big Brother project yet conceived. India is to issue each of its 1.2 billion citizens, millions of whom live in remote villages and possess no documentary proof of existence, with cyber-age biometric identity cards.
The Government in Delhi recently created the Unique Identification Authority, a new state department charged with the task of assigning every living Indian an exclusive number. It will also be responsible for gathering and electronically storing… Continue
Will this be a Deja'vu moment
for the Obama Administration?
On April 19, 1775 a British detachment of 800 men under the command of Lt. Col. Francis Smith was deployed to Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts to seize stored colonial arms and ammunition and to arrest the ringleaders of the plot to assert America's independence from England. What caused this action? A series of oppressive British taxes known collectively as the Intolerable Acts.

Mouseland was a story told first by Clarence Gillis, and later and most famously by Tommy Douglas, leader of the Saskatchewan Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and, later, the New Democratic Party of Canada, both social democratic parties. It was a political fable expressing the CCF's view that the Canadian political system was flawed in offering voters a false dilemma: the choice of two parties, neither of which… Continue
Does anyone really know what time it is? Its not that
I think Dylan in "All Along the Watch Tower" was wrong about the hour getting late.
It was more like he was right about many among us thinking life was but a joke. Which has lead US to just waisting time.
Since the gospel of a brotherhood of mankind has been preached and even trampled all over this Beautiful Planet, we are closer to the days the Lamb said would come. Which having taken a good look around these…
That subject has never been mentioned in the mainstream media but Cynthia McKinney's recent attempt to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza via small ship was designed to shed light on this subject, although most people are still quite unaware.
On June 30th 2009, Israeli Naval gunships surrounded the Spirit of Humanity, a boat used by the Free Gaza Movement, in international waters 60 miles off the coast of Israel, and arrested twenty-one activists, from 11… Continue
The director of the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), Rod Beckstrom, wants to see the nation’s traditions of democracy and human rights extend into the online world.
In his keynote at this year’s Black Hat conference, Beckstrom praised America’s founders, including George Mason, for devising the Bill of Rights and compared Mason’s ideas about human rights to “an open source module” created by an engineer for all to use.
“Cyberdemocracy — blogging — is a great use of… Continue
