Ten years ago since Shock and Awe. Ten years ago Millions of Americans watched apathetically as it was bombs over Baghdad. The Corporate Media was having a field day, the mass firepower raining down on an “evil dictator” brought a smile to the face of those with a penchant for blood. Two years had passed as the fog of 9/11 was lifting somewhat but American circa 2003 where a very frightened people. Saddam Hussein was being touted as Bin Ladin’s bosom body,the average America thought Iraq was a country on the verge of declaring Jihad on America. In retrospect the whole Continue reading →
Human life is worthless. This is the message that has been coming out of Washing ton this week. The Department of Justice in its attempt to justify death has created a legal frame work rationalizing the taking of human life. It seems that our Nation has embraced a militaristic culture where human life is not celebrated or preserved but deemed unworthy of such status. The United States is a Nation that instead of focusing on important things like helping provide a safety net to the people, or making sure we have an educated and civilized society, is much too busy and would rather draft up legal arguments justifying killing and torture. This sort of disregard for human life is one of Continue reading →
American leadership loves secrecy! There is no doubt about. Any time there is mention of government transparency (an oxymoron), one can only wonder why they even bother with such a ruse. Government has always been in love with classifications and deeming things top secret. Clandestine actions are carried out every day in the name of “National Security”. As Fox Mulder of X-Files fame would say “the truth is out there” except the American people according to their government have absolutely no right to know. But why all the secrecy? Why the lack of transparency with the people? Democracy is about openness right? Does our leadership feel a public rejection of what is truly a dirty covert agenda? Continue reading →
A man of Peace who will obtain it through War and killing. In the opening statements of the debate Romney switched in basic philosophical principle whether he would pursue war or peace. It was a a debate that touched upon foreign policy but as per usual with a domestic twist. The final presidential debate truly provides a summary of what Mitt Romney is all about, a confused befuddled individual, with no ideas and policies and what little he may actually believe in is usually changed whenever the possibility of votes may be coming his way. Let us go further down the rabbit hole into the Final Countdown!
Going on strike when used correctly is a powerful weapon for the worker to fight back against the abuses of management. However the strike is a technique that more often than not invites criticism from many. It is seen almost like a tantrum and those who do not understand the reason for this course of action will often try to trivialize the situation. In the last few months two notable strikes have occurred, In Quebec Canada students had taken the streets against a government which wanted to increase their tuition and even throw in a law to curb protesting and freedom of speech. While in America the much maligned public school teachers of Chicago went on a strike for about a week and causing the first one in twenty five years. Both of these public actions had similarities and key differences. What we have is a story of two different strikes and the results yielded by Continue reading →
By Alberto Pupo An astounding turn of events. In a move that shocked many Nations around the world, Ecuador has granted Julian Assange asylum. Yes it is the small insignificant Nation that has stepped up to protect a man who is being unjustly persecuted for exposing war crimes around the world. Assange and Wiki Leaks have been enemy number one for quite sometime, since they continue to release and bring to light various different crimes committed by banks, corporations, government officials the military. Wiki Leaks for the past year has been the largest purveyor of transparency and accountability to the people worldwide. This has left many governments especially the United States particularly angry and still trying to find a way to prosecute Assange. The irony is that the Nation which has taken up the mantle of democracy is the Continue reading →

So once again another Memorial Day is coming. Another empty vapid perfunctory salute to men and women who went off to die for no reason other than to enrich others. This Memorial Day I think what we need to start thinking about as people is ways to stop war rather than expand it. The military Industrial Complex , The Beast that Ike saw go on a rampage before eyes continues to claim the life of so many. The problem with War in America is that it is revered like a God . However sadly enough only a small percentage of individuals get sent to do the dirty work. Only a small percent are sacrificed. They in turn cause a domino effect which kills other innocents abroad. This Memorial Day if one wants to truly respect and honor those who have served and fallen, one must realize that the only way to do justice is by ending wars.
Why is there a need to destroy our home planet? There seems to be inside the hearts of men and some women an unquenchable thirst to punish our planet for some form of misdeed. By stripping all of its resources,polluting its ocean and land,damaging the wild life the flora and fauna etc. Humanity comes in and has totally trashed the planet like a fraternity after a night of orgiastic activity. However unlike a raucous fraternity house it seems that the need to clean up after the mess never seems to enter mind of many. It seems in fact the devastation of a planet is an acceptable status quo an unfortunate side effect of our time on the planet, not only that but just think of all the profit. After all the modus operandi of so many of the worse polluters are in it for the money.
Climate Change many of us are told the tale of Global Warming. While supported by facts highlighting frivolous little things like the rise of the ocean levels, or warmer than usual Continue reading →
Let them eat Austerity! The new battle cries raging from Europe. A continent that has become a frenzy of the Austerity rhetoric. Everywhere you turn in Europe it is fashionable for countries to take a stab at the public sector, to starve the beast of government because after all Government caused the Global Recession. As suicide rates are going up and the people are being affected in Greece, as Spain stands at the brink of outrageously high unemployment. The respective government s of those Nations feel that only road to take is to make the public sector suffers for the sins of the financial system. The Wall Street bankers plunder and pillage take advantage of the whole situation and cause a meltdown, yet is the people who have to suffer for the sins of financiers. America better be careful because if the Right gets their way European styled Austerity is coming soon.
Europe continues to suffer because of Wall St. European politicians who are waiting for some sort of way to cut the financial bleeding are convinced that by shredding the public Continue reading →
