OpEdNews - Article: Biggest Threat to America-- It's our Immoral Military-- With A Leader Who Thinks It's Fun to Kill Afghans

OpEdNews - Article: Biggest Threat to America-- It's our Immoral Military-- With A Leader Who Thinks It's Fun to Kill Afghans: "'Actually, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know it's a helluva hoot. I'll be right up front with you. I like brawling. You go into Afghanistan, you get guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil ... guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them.'"

OpEdNews - Article: America: The World's Master of Double Standards

OpEdNews - Article: America: The World's Master of Double Standards: "Some cynic might ask, why is it if we have invaded and occupied Iraq and Afghanistan, and are making incursions into Pakistan, that these other nations such as Russia could not, under any circumstances no matter what the reason, invade other nations? The answer is very simple because that's the rule that we have put in place; we have the right to do it but others do not. It's because we say so. If it's a double standard, well so what? If some nations don't like it, just what are they going to do about it?"

The Israeli stranglehold on CNN | Intifada Palestine

The Israeli stranglehold on CNN | Intifada Palestine: "However, when a journalist working in “the land of liberty” is fired from her job for merely saying she respected an elderly man, who had just died, and who happened to be a critic of Israel and the US policies , one is prompted to feel that the “Nazi experiment” can and may experience a certain reincarnation, somehow, somewhere."

Freelance Photographer: 'I Was Followed by BP Security and Then Detained by Police' | | AlterNet
"I protested and asked on what legal grounds could the police officer share my information with BP? I was never on BP property. They told me it was standard procedure and I told them I didn't agree with it and didn't understand what legal authority they had to share that information".

un[redacted] news: DID THE MILITARY STOP CHENEY FROM DESTROYING THE WORLD?

un[redacted] news: DID THE MILITARY STOP CHENEY FROM DESTROYING THE WORLD?: "In 2007, a bizarre event occurred. Six nuclear weapons showed up on a B-52 out of nowhere. The public was told they were mistakenly loaded onto the bomber and send flying around the United States. After a 6 week investigation, 70 airmen were punished for the “mistake” but the story hardly ends there. Key personnel at Minot Air Force Base, origin of the “loading mistake” began to have accidents. Loaders and pilots from Minot became some of the unluckiest people on earth. Coincidences pile up as the death toll rises. For every news story available for review, two have disappeared, almost as mysteriously as the deaths they reported. Members of our Air Force keep track of things, from one of their blogs:"

DailyTech - Chinese Firm Drops Local IQ Standards for U.S. Hires: "When it decided to recruit American computer science graduates, though, it decided that bar was way too high. It dropped the requirement for the Americans down to 120, a move it says reflects a lower pool of talented college grads in the U.S."

OpEdNews - Article: Waltzing at the Doomsday Ball: Capitalism is dead, but we still dance with the corpse
"As an Anglo European white guy from a very long line of white guys, I want to thank all the brown, black, yellow and red people for a marvelous three-century joy ride. During the past 300 years of the industrial age, as Europeans, and later as Americans, we have managed to consume infinitely more than we ever produced, thanks to colonialism, crooked deals with despotic potentates and good old gunboats and grapeshot. Yes, we have lived, and still live, extravagant lifestyles far above the rest of you. And so, my sincere thanks to all of you folks around the world working in sweatshops, or living on two bucks a day, even though you sit on vast oil deposits. And to those outside my window here in Mexico this morning, the two guys pruning the retired gringo's hedges with what look like pocket knives, I say, keep up the good work. It's the world's cheap labor guys like you -- the black, brown and yellow folks who take it up the shorts -- who make capitalism look like it actually works. So keep on humping. Remember: We've got predator drones".

Op-Ed Columnist - Punishing the Unemployed - NYTimes.com: "But that was then. Today, American workers face the worst job market since the Great Depression, with five job seekers for every job opening, with the average spell of unemployment now at 35 weeks. Yet the Senate went home for the holiday weekend without extending benefits. How was that possible?"

ALAN HART: BREAKS SILENCE ABOUT 9/11 ON THE KEVIN BARRETT SHOW | My Catbird Seat

ALAN HART: BREAKS SILENCE ABOUT 9/11 ON THE KEVIN BARRETT SHOW | My Catbird Seat: "Sounding a chilling note, Hart added that the U.S. is in grave danger of an Israeli-instigated false-flag nuclear attack, perhaps using an American nuclear weapon stolen from Minot Air Force Base during the “loose nukes” rogue operation of August, 2007. The motive would be to trigger a U.S. war with Iran, and perhaps to finish the ethnic cleansing of Palestine under cover of war–which Hart is convinced the Zionists are planning to do as soon as the opportunity presents itself."

"One of the most bizarre features of my time here in Venezuela is the incredibly hypocritical way the redneck Americans who are here with me react to their foreign surroundings. They can’t stop praising almost everything about Venezuela, yet they also condemn almost everything about Venezuela".

Marijuana Activist Barry Cooper Arrested at Texas State Capitol - Stephen C. Webster - Brave New Hooks - True/Slant

Marijuana Activist Barry Cooper Arrested at Texas State Capitol - Stephen C. Webster - Brave New Hooks - True/Slant: "“I’m here today to turn myself in because I have a warrant for my arrest from the Texas Rangers for a sting that KopBusters did in Odessa, Texas, that successfully released Yolanda Madden from an eight year federal prison sentence. I was explaining to everybody on the walk up here that it feels bad that I only gotta go to jail for one day. I have this kinda support: my lawyer here, and my wife. But Raymond Madden had to walk his daughter this same way to do eight years in prison. My good friend Marc Emery in Canada, two months ago just had to turn his self in for selling marijuana seeds. He turned himself over to the United States government and he’s doing five years in prison."
