QUOTE:

What Are We Waiting For? By Joel S. Hirschhorn

Obama has not defined our domestic tyranny and told us
how he will try to abolish it. Obama is no dissident or
revolutionary. The change he mostly seeks is moving
from senator to president. Not what I have been waiting for.

The Old Titans All Collapsed. Is the U.S. Next?

By Kevin Phillips

The United States of 2008 is the world's leading debtor,
has by far the largest current-account deficit and is the
leading importer, at great expense, of both manufactured
goods and oil. The potential damage if the world soon
undergoes the greatest financial crisis since the 1930s
is incalculable. The loss of global economic leadership
that overtook Britain and Holland seems to be looming
on our own horizon. Continue

The CIA Is More Active Than Ever In Venezuela

BY JEAN-GUY ALLARD

Let’s remember that it isn’t about who occupies the
chair in the Oval Office, but those who are around that
person. And that doesn’t change much whether the
occupant is a Democrat or a Republican. The
military-industrial complex, the big bankers and the
transnationals are the ones that really govern in the
United States. And they are not leaving power in
November. Continue

Student Loans Crunch Starves Greedy Colleges

By Ted Rall

Student loans are a big segment of the banking industry,
amounting to about $85 billion last year. Until recently, they
were also hugely profitable. But the credit crunch has caused
some lenders to pull out of the federal program. As a result,
the pool of money for college loans available has fallen 13 percent.

Obituary

By Frank Silva

Today we mourn the death of the United States of America. -
Although it is clear that America did not die of natural causes,
no cause of death was released. Authorities also report that despite
America’s death, upcoming elections will be held as scheduled
and in the interest of those elections no autopsy would be
conducted. Continue

Childish Superstition

Einstein's letter makes view of religion relatively clear

By James Randerson, science correspondent

"The word god is for me nothing more than the expression
and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of
honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless
pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can
(for me) change this." Continue

The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder

By Vincent Bugliosi

There is direct evidence that President George W. Bush did
not honorably lead this nation, but deliberately misled it
into a war he wanted. Bush and his administration knowingly
lied to Congress and to the American public — lies that have
cost the lives of more than 4,000 young American soldiers
and close to $1 trillion. Continue

Reality

By Mark A. Goldman

Americans, in general, seem averse to contemplating
reality. Up until now it’s been easy to get away with it,
for as long as energy was cheap we were all free to
pursue personal interests and put most everything else
out of our minds. But soon reality is going to confront
us at every turn. For some, it's already happening.
