text Obama Delivers State of Delusion Address rumple, Wednesday, Jan 25 2012, 9:37pm
PUPPET president Obama dutifully delivered his rehearsed and scripted State of the Union address to a socially aware America/WORLD recently; and as the majority noted, the one outstanding feature of this address was its COMPLETE disconnect from SOCIAL REALITY. I mean, who is Obama and his handlers trying to kid? So completely divorced from REALITY was the entire mad hatters address that it beggared belief -- one can only wonder who is prescribing the (wrong) medication for the executive these days! The insular dunces that wrote the diatribe really need to get out more. Even the long-suffering, under-educated, spineless American population viewed the entire charade with the cynicism it deserved.

text MegaUpload Case -- US Seeks Dominion Over Cyberspace Brett Winterford via Kismo, Sunday, Jan 22 2012, 8:19pm
Have we had enough of America's 'permanent war,' 'indefinite detention,' neo-fascist policies or should we ALLOW the US to harness and control Cyberspace -- that is the principal issue behind the Assange and MegaUpload cases?

Not content with illegally invading weaker nations, plundering and killing thousands of innocent civilians -- all in the name of PROFIT -- the clearly criminal US now seeks dominion over Cyberspace, the last truly FREE social space left to humanity.

Twenty four hours after Internet advocates held a GLOBAL online protest objecting to proposed anti-piracy legislation, which they claim is censorship at its worst and overreach at best, one of the world's largest file-sharing sites,, was shuttered by the FBI and arrest warrants served in New Zealand! [Draconian information control necessarily follows totalitarian Indefinite Detention law in the face of widespread, SUSTAINED, social paralysis/INACTION. As occurred in Nazi Germany, the best thing the civilised and educated German MASSES could do to stop Fascism's swift rise, was sit with their thumbs up their arses!] (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

text Voters Choice: Ron Paul or Israel Lobby William A. Cook via reed, Monday, Jan 16 2012, 8:06pm
A curious glance at the current crop of presidential candidates makes it clear that Ron Paul stands alone when it comes to the issue of US engagement in foreign wars. He stands with George Washington against foreign entanglements while the rest of the candidates stand with Teddy Roosevelt and the attempted creation of America 's first empire one hundred and twelve years ago. Mark Twain responded to that effort by creating the Anti-imperialist society while he caustically satirized the effort in his depiction of the massacre of the Moros in the Philippines . Now we have more massacres, using drones instead of canons, on equally hapless civilians who are caught unawares or hiding from the wrath of America 's righteousness as we drive to bring virtue to a primitive world.

text 'Defense' Lunacy USA Kevin Carson via gan, Sunday, Jan 15 2012, 8:30pm
US military culture has recently made the headlines again with the urination corpse 'scandal' -- never mind the mass civilian murders, targeted assassinations and ILLEGAL military occupations! The Pentagon has revealed quite plainly how they transform OUR civilized youth into sadistic, homicidal sociopaths fighting CORPORATE wars -- that is the real tragedy. Our soldiers unconsciously know they are fighting dishonorable, CRIMINAL wars for PROFIT. Hence, SUICIDE continues to be the largest killer of US troops, enough said? The real enemy behind all the wars is Wall St. Bankers and Corporate owned Washington politicians!

energydrinks.jpg image Doctors warn: so-called Energy drinks are POISONING our teens Siobhan Duck via stan, Sunday, Jan 15 2012, 6:51am
The Corporate and Big Pharma controlled AMA is calling, not for a ban on these clearly toxic, designed for no good purpose, 'energy drinks', but an age restriction on their sale. Clearly doctors are worried about losing their bonus points for that free holiday on the Gold Coast if they step on Big Pharma and Corporate toes, you pathetic, corrupt, gutless, professional no-accounts! But perhaps Aussie doctors may wish to inform the public of the diabetic 'benefits' to any age group a hyper-sweetened, caffeine saturated drink could offer! (story and 1 image)

text Scientific basis for some Yoga practices in Sinusitis Dr. Aanada Balayogi Bhavanani via sadh, Saturday, Jan 14 2012, 9:47pm
Recent American 'news' reports are warning that nasal irrigation -- known as Jala Neti in its country of origin -- could be fatal due to the presence of a brain eating amoeba in American drinking water! We have often wondered what they put in American drinking water to create such a fear ridden, socially paralysed (indefinite detention without trial or charge) CLEARLY enslaved, imbecilic population! The existence of this amoeba, among other things, in American drinking water may not surprise many so I would add a cautionary provision to the practice of jala neti; if in any doubt whatsoever regarding the safety of water supplies simply BOIL all water thoroughly and clean all utensils ('neti pots') before utilisation for nasal irrigation. There ya go, you dumb, frightened, Americans. [Please note this is an editorial comment and in no way reflects the opinion or sentiments of the author, though the health/safety warning applies!] (story and 1 comment)

It is to be expected that a SERVANT serves his master. Only fools and the uninformed would find the following report shocking. The solution to the OBVIOUS problem is simple; criminal COLLUSION is a CRIME and anyone that serves criminal interests is a CRIMINAL, regardless of their position in society. If the President of the United States is a criminal then lock him and his cohorts in crime up! The LAW must apply to ALL or it becomes a tool in the hands of the criminally corrupt and civilisation goes to the dogs! (story and 1 image)

text Non-Violent Revolution Expert hangs OWS up to Dry Viva la lucha Armada, Tuesday, Jan 10 2012, 9:46pm
"All change is violent to that which is changed." There is no escaping the fact that all social/political revolutions -- including Gandhi's -- result in HUGE casualties and deaths. OWS dreamboats take note of your guru Gene Sharp stating what every analyst already knew, OWS is I-N-E-F-F-E-C-T-I-V-E! It was designed to achieve nothing but have the appearance of a protest movement and it was done well -- you mindless American morons!
