----snip---- And it is healthy, in contrast with the dead-end dispiritedness of corporate capitalism, in which everything and everyone are little more than raw materials for the robber barons’ assembly lines. This archaic and apocalyptic system of production and reproduction is sick at its very core, revealing a form of mass insanity masking as progress, and leaving illness and misery in its wake just beneath the shiny veneer of development. At the height of colonialism, blankets with smallpox ...

By Linh Dinh --------snip------------ Though the mainstream media have stayed clear of this topic, the truths about the Fed are leaking out all over the web, so Big Brother has a solution. The New York Fed is seeking a vendor to help it monitor online conversations about the Federal Reserve. It wants “an alerting mechanism that automatically sends out reports or notifications based on predefined triggers.” This cyber spook will “provide sentiment analysis (positive, negative or neutral) aroun...

Nice tribute to Carlin. He was one-of-a-kind, telling the hard truths using words like a sledgehammer while making us both laugh and think. I miss him.

By Bob Nichols Online Journal Contributing Writer Oct 6, 2010 ------snippet------ These radioactive automatic weapons are so small they can float right through your clothes, evade your skin’s defenses and invade your body. Wherever the weapons alight inside, there is trouble as they never stop firing and there is no limit to their number. In a soldiers brain, trouble shows up in a noticeable way to others. As for the 20 cell radius ball within Range, think of these powerful Bullets each as a...

by Henry Abrons -- Published on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 by The San Francisco Chronicle The Census Bureau released its annual report on income, poverty and health insurance coverage in the United States earlier this month, and it's no surprise to learn that we're in bad shape. The number of people living in poverty was 43.6 million (14.3 percent), up sharply from 2008, and real per capita income declined 1 percent. Looking at health insurance, the situation is truly dire. There was a dramat...

By Lucine Kasbarian Online Journal Guest Writer Why would I seek out the Der Zor desert -- the most infamous of the killings fields in the premeditated extermination of the Armenian people carried out by the Turkish government beginning in 1915? Most of my extended kin did not survive the darkest period in our people’s history: 1915 to 1923. My four grandparents survived the ordeals but lost virtually everyone else, or, in some cases, their entire clan. All but one grandparent lost their spous...

----------------------------------------------------------------------- Income More Unequal in US Than in Some Parts of Latin America by JJ Sutherland There's a fascinating series being published over on Slate by Timothy Noah. It explores the growing income inequality in the United States. Really interesting stuff worth a read. One paragraph really popped out at me. All my life I've heard Latin America described as a failed society (or collection of failed societies) because of its grotesque...

By John Nichols ---snip--- Hightower has for almost three decades — since his election as Texas agriculture commissioner in the second year of the Reagan/Bush era — been America’s best-known and most ardent progressive populist. Along the way, he has defended family farmers and factory workers, small-business owners and teachers, neglected rural communities, and inner cities from the ravages of the Wall Street speculators and their political handmaidens in Washington. During the farm crisis o...

Here is a copy of Lord Stirling's blog dated today at (Link)/ Iran War ~ How It Will Unfold. I have served as a consultant to three very high tech aerospace firms. My special...

By Naomi Klein, The Nation. Posted November 14, 2008 (Link)/ ---snip--- Despite all of this potential lawlessness, the Democrats are either openly defending the administration or refusing to intervene. "There is only one president at a time," we hear from Barack Obama. That's true. But every sweetheart deal the lame-duck Bush administration makes threatens to hobble Obama's ability to make good on his promise of change. To cite just one example, that $140 billion in missing tax revenue is al...

Listen to how incredibly racist the Nixon crowd was -- they must've been very frightened by the Jewish community. "Born spies," -- just incredible. This was the sitting President of the United States chatting with inner circle members of his cabinet back in 1971.

Poll question
...eliminated with the implementation of instant runoff voting at the national level? ---------------- Instant-runoff voting (IRV) is a voting system used for single-winner elections in which voters have one vote and rank candidates in order of preference. If no candidate receives a majority of first preference rankings, the candidate with the fewest number of votes is eliminated and that candidate's votes redistributed to the voters' next preferences among the remaining candidates. This proc...

Habeeb Online Journal Guest Writer (Link) ---snip--- GAZA STRIP, Palestine -- Severe terror and traumas are de facto storms for children in the occupied territories, especially those who exist in the Gaza Strip. The ongoing Israeli military operations and violent retaliation induce psychological maladies and wretched conditions. The recent ceasefire in Gaza allows a temporary rest but not the cure for their fears and nightmares. The summer of 2007 was a start of a mayhem for the...

...and it is becoming more and more general -- that in all the perils that confront us the direction of affairs is given over to a way of thinking that no longer has any understanding of itself. It is like being in a carriage, descending an increasingly precipitous slope, and suddenly realizing there is no coachman on the box." The Russian diplomat-poet Fyodor Tyuchev (1803-1873) in a letter to his wife about the dangerous road ahead toward revolution. Source: (Link) My question: How often d...
