All through the George W. Bush administration, Americans were fed a steady diet of fear, strategically orchestrated by Bush and Cheney to promote their political agenda. Americans were scared into supporting war. They were frightened into buying masking tape. They were jolted by elevated color codes. They were unnerved about flying on planes. And much much more...
For eight long years Bush and Cheney were masters of mania,… Continue

Next Tuesday Americans will be deciding whether to hand over even more of our government to corporations that have been plundering America - such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, Wellpoint insurance, Massey Energy, and Halliburton, the giant oil services company.
Not every large corporation is irresponsible, of course, but plunderers that get away with it gain a competitive advantage over the more responsible, and… Continue

The latest release by Wikileaks of the Iraq War Logs is the largest leak in U.S. history and reveals in extensive detail what Iraq Veterans Against the War has been saying since our founding in 2004. The U.S. has presided over a bloody occupation for seven years where war crimes are a common offense, civilian casualties have been grossly under-reported, and corporate contractors run amok.
IVAW Statement on the Iraq War Logs - A Call for Accountability

"Iran is not the enemy, Israel is the enemy," the head of the Center for Strategic Studies in Saudi Arabia declared in an interview with Al Jazeera. This was his response to a question on whether the $60 billion arms deal between Riyadh and Washington was meant to deter Iran. The American efforts to portray the deal as aimed against Tehran doesn't fit with the Saudi point of view, and it seems this isn't the only subject over which these two… Continue

Stop GE salmon from reaching your plate!
We have until November 22nd to submit coments to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demanding they reject genetically engineered (GE) salmon, and if it is approved, require GE salmon to be labeled.
The FDA is trying to approve GE salmon as a new animal drug, but the truth is U.S. food agencies have not evaluated the impacts on human health or the environment. Say no to Frankenfish.
Worst of all, if these GE salmon are… Continue

Canada’s international do-gooder image was shattered when it lost its bid for a UN Security Council seat, amid back-stabbing, maple syrup bribes, and Israeli-dictated cover-ups.
The humiliating withdrawal by Canada from the race with Germany and Portugal for a covetted place on the United Nations Security Council revealed what close observers have long known -- that the current Conservative government in Ottawa has nothing but… Continue

Excerpts, without comment, from Milton Mayer’s “They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45”
"What no one seemed to notice was the ever widening gap, after 1933, between the government and the people. You know, it doesn’t make people close to their government to be told that this is a people’s government, a true democracy.
"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people to being governed by surprise;… Continue

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, spiritual mentor of the religious fundamentalist party, Shas, which represents Middle Eastern Jews, reportedly said during a Sabbath homily earlier this week that "the sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews." Yosef is considered a major… Continue

In the Arab orient they call it Tichreen war, in Egypt they call it October war, in other parts of the Arab world they call it Ramadan war, in Israel they call Yom Kippur war, in other parts of the world they call it the 1973 war, all these names are to name the war that took place 37 years ago between Arabs and Israel. The question is how to place this war in the Arab history.
In the view of most Arab historians, the importance… Continue

There is a raging debate among economists. The divisions run deep and the rhetoric is heating up. The debate pertains to our economic future and, unlike some of the inconsequential intellectual feuds that take place in remote ivory towers, the stakes are sky high.
On one side are the deflationists who argue that we are about to experience a major global price deflation in which asset and goods prices will fall. On the other side… Continue

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that drug overdoses killed 33,000 people in 2005, second only to car accidents in the category of accidental deaths. In 1999, the number was 20,000, and in 1990, 10,000 died.
As this excellent commentary in Better Body Journal points out, the huge increase in people dying is not because of a heroin or crack epidemic. These deaths are largely due to prescription drugs.
