Canadian Activists and Lawyers United for Justice: Canadians must bar or prosecute Bush (tags)

Canada must bar or prosecute Bush for torture, and mass murder. For he is a war criminal who lied that Saddam wouldn't let our inspectors in. And, with Cheney, closed 911 FBI investigations before we were finished nabbing the actual suspects for mass murder

Neoliberal Definitional Power (tags)

"What is central is ending the constant expropriation of employees, not the expropriation of entrepreneurs." Market fundamentalists stylize every tax as expropriation as though they had no responsibility for paying for roads, schools, health care, police, fire departments and water-food supervision.

Ha-Joon Chang's "Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade" (tags)

7 CIA Veterans Challenge 9/11 Commission Report (tags)

September 23, 2007 – Seven CIA veterans have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and have called for a new investigation. “I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a joke,” said Raymond McGovern, 27-year veteran of the CIA, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates during the seventies. “There are a whole bunch of unanswered questions. And the reason they’re unanswered is because this administration will not answer the questions,” he said. McGovern, who is also the founder of VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity), is one of many signers of a petition to reinvestigate 9/11.

BROWNSHIRTS IN WHITE (tags)

As the June 5th peace march approaches, will you be prepared for the "Brownshirts in White"--the pro-war, pro-Bush "Protest Warriors" who tagged along in the March 20 peace marches? On March 20, they carried signs reading "Leave Saddam alone; he only kills his own people" and "Give communism another chance; it's only killed 100 million people so far." What will you do on June 5? Will you talk with these guys? Will you ignore them? (And have you read Thom Hartmann's excellent article about Hitler's reign, entitled "When Democracy Failed"?

Why democrats act like republicans (tags)

Thom Hartmann: 'Want to win an election? Just control the voting machines' (tags)

You'd think in an open democracy that the government - answerable to all its citizens rather than a handful of corporate officers and stockholders - would program, repair, and control the voting machines. You'd think the computers that handle our cherished ballots would be open and their software and programming available for public scrutiny. You'd think there would be a paper trail of the vote, which could be followed and audited if a there was evidence of voting fraud or if exit polls disagreed with computerized vote counts. You'd be wrong.
