Gas Prices, Gas Bags, & The Gas Chamber

Monday, May 19th, 2008

No doubt the current energy crunch is a complex equation. A number of factors likely contribute to the rising price of gasoline in the United States. As I understand it, they include the rapidly expanding consumer demand (including China and India), the fact that the U.S. hasn't built a new ...

Monsanto: Wanted for Murder in India

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Well, technically it isn’t murder. And Monsanto isn’t the only culprit; they’re just the biggest. Tens of thousands of farmers in India have committed suicide during the past few years. A large part of the problem is Monsanto’s increasing stranglehold on the world’s seed supply. Their patented seeds cost three times ...

Bush Feels Your Pain at the Pump?

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

President Bush today let the American people know that he is right on top of things with the rising gas prices. Then again, no, he really didn’t. But he did acknowledge that it’s a problem for the working class of America. Then again, no, he really didn’t. I’m pretty sure ...

Federal Reserve Finally Does What Congress Won’t Do

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Thank God for our system of checks and balances. For the past seven years, Congress has been having an ongoing orgy with the banking industry. And now, finally, the Federal Reserve is about to step in and do Congress’ job for them. Somebody has to do it. The “legislative” process has ...

President Pickledick Supports the Troops

Friday, April 25th, 2008

After a constant series of increasingly frequent deployments, many troops who used to support him are joining the rest of the ...

Serving a constituency-but which one?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

With the news that the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) will appeal a ruling handed down last week by the courts, it gives one pause to consider why they would have a problem with the new law regarding lobbying. The law in question is the Honest Leadership and Open Government ...

Thank God for Colombia

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

With growing horror, we’re seeing most of South America move to the left. Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador are the most blatant examples. But even such former rightwing stalwarts as Argentina and Chile are slowly moving away from America’s ideals. One would think that with all we've done for South America, they'd ...

From CommonDreams.org: Over the next few weeks Smith would be told to keep quiet about the incident by a KBR supervisor. The camp's military liaison officer also told her not to speak about what had happened, she says. And she would follow these instructions. "Because then, all of a sudden, if ...

About that military budget George…

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Our government uses the War On Terror as an excuse for any and everything military. As Robert Scheer notes in his writeup at TruthDig, the newest GAO report is a horrendous bit of reading that will chafe you hide or at the very least cause you to grind your teeth ...
