OpEdNews - Article: The True Masters: What Dogs Teach Us

OpEdNews - Article: The True Masters: What Dogs Teach Us: "I have cried as much over the demise of dogs as after the death of humans - the latter mostly dead, while living. Or might as well be. Dogs are our animal siblings that never stop loving us; unlike brute human droppings - some beastly relatives, erstwhile friends and many a ungodly people in our life - who, live on and even take to graves the love that they could not give us while alive."

The NSA is a Disgrace

The NSA is a Disgrace: "The sooner the NSA is permanently dismantled, the better. And the quicker that the American people recognize the courage displayed by Edward Snowden for standing up to the American empire, the better. Sadly, American politicians have sought to skirt the issue, or change the topic."

John Pilger: America Is Treating an Entire Contintent Like a Chessboard in Its Game to Dominate China | Alternet

John Pilger: America Is Treating an Entire Contintent Like a Chessboard in Its Game to Dominate China | Alternet: "With minimal media interest, the US African Command (Africom) has deployed troops to 35 African countries, establishing a familiar network of authoritarian supplicants eager for bribes and armaments. In war games, a “soldier to soldier” doctrine embeds US officers at every level of command from general to warrant officer. The British did the same in India. It is as if Africa’s proud history of liberation, from Patrice Lumumba to Nelson Mandela, is consigned to oblivion by a new master’s black colonial elite whose “historic mission”, warned Frantz Fanon half a century ago, is the subjugation of their own people in the cause of “a capitalism rampant though camouflaged”. The reference also fits the Son of Africa in the White House."

OpEdNews - Article: Ignored Reality Is Going To Wipe Out the Human Race

OpEdNews - Article: Ignored Reality Is Going To Wipe Out the Human Race: "In fact, entitlements consist of Social Security and Medicare. Entitlements are funded by the payroll tax, approximately 15% of payroll. The fact that a person pays the payroll tax all his working life is why the person is entitled to Social Security and Medicare if they live to retirement age. Welfare, such as food stamps and housing subsidies, are a small part of the federal budget and are not entitlements."

OpEdNews - Article: John Carpenter's Prophetic Visions of the American Police State: "I'm disgusted by what we've become in America. I truly believe there is brain death in this country. Everything we see is designed to sell us something. The only thing they want to do is take our money."--John Carpenter

OpEdNews - Article: Our Invisible Revolution

OpEdNews - Article: Our Invisible Revolution: "An increasing number of Americans are getting it. They know that we have been stripped of political power. They recognize that we have been shorn of our most basic and cherished civil liberties, and live under the gaze of the most intrusive security and surveillance apparatus in human history. Half the country lives in poverty. Many of the rest of us, if the corporate state is not overthrown, will join them. These truths are no longer hidden."

OpEdNews - Article: Got His Gun -- Lost His Legs, Arms, and Penis

OpEdNews - Article: Got His Gun -- Lost His Legs, Arms, and Penis: "Contrary to common opinion in the United States, war is not inevitable. Nor has it always been with us. War is a human invention -- an organized, deliberate action of an anti-social kind -- and in the long span of human life on Earth, a fairly recent one. For more than 99 percent of the time that humans have lived on this planet, most of them have never made war. Many languages don't even have a word for it. Turn off CNN and read anthropology. You'll see.

"What's more, war is obsolete. Most nations don't make war anymore, except when coerced by the United States to join some spurious 'coalition.' The earth is so small, and our time here so short. No other nation on the planet makes war as often, as long, as forcefully, as expensively, as destructively, as wastefully, as senselessly, or as unsuccessfully as the United States. No other nation makes war its business."
