Do You Know the Truth About Lockerbie?

By Robert Fisk

I believe there are many dark and sinister corners to
this atrocity. I'm not at all certain that the CIA did not
have a scam drugs heist on board and I am not at all
sure that the diminutive Libyan agent Megrahi – ultimately
convicted on the evidence of the memory of a Maltese
tailor – really arranged to plant the bomb on board Pan
Am Flight 103 in December 1988. Continue

Reviewing James Petras'

"Rulers and Ruled in the US Empire"

By Stephen Lendman

"The growth of monstrous and rigid class inequalities reflects
the narrow social base of an economy dominated by finance
capital" with the US redistributing far less to its people than
other developed nations like those in Western Europe.
Democrats are as culpable as Republicans with both parties
tied to big monied interests through campaign funding and
the power of lobbies. It makes everyone in the political power
structure unwilling to change things so they don't. The result
is working Americans suffer hugely while those at the top
never had it so good." Continue

Michelle Turner's husband sits in the recliner with the

Matthew 7:3 (Look It Up)

By Cindy Sheehan

It is truly touching the way First Lady Laura Bush cares
about the people of Burma and is using her officiousness
(oops…I think that may be the wrong word…or is it?) to
bring attention to the admittedly horrible situation there.
There are very few people in the world that would not
sympathize with or become outraged when monks are
beaten and killed because they protested high gas prices.

The boxer rebellion

USATODAY.com

Two years ago, entertainer and activist Bill Cosby created a
tir in the African-American community by saying blacks should
stop playing the victim — and start taking responsibility for
social problems ranging from high prison rates to poverty. He
depicted a typical, problem-plagued young man as having his
"hat on backwards, pants down around the crack."

QUOTE:

America: exceptional no more?

American exceptionalism – the view that America
is unique among nations – is a treasured creed. That's
why it is so troubling to observe radical changes in
American public life that threaten to make the United
States look like many other countries, including those
in the so-called third world.

FRED SAWYER AND HUCKABEE FINN

Ann Coulter

Conservatives unhappy with our Republican presidential
candidates seem to be drifting aimlessly toward Fred
Thompson and Mike Huckabee in the misguided belief
that these candidates are more conservative than Rudy
Giuliani and Mitt Romney. This is like breaking up with
Bobby Brown so you can date Phil Spector.
