Election time seems around the corner again. You know what, so what? All our lives we always were taught how it is for us to vote. I vote… all the time. I will vote again too, but… having said that, I will be leaving my ballots pretty empty this time around. Why?

Since so many of my Democratic Party friends accuse me of lambasting them too much, let us begin with the Republican Party first. Well, these jokers are at least candid in their disdain for us working stiffs. You see, they come right out and support the super rich and their corporate backers. No bones about it.

Wouldn’t you expect that the judges and their lives would become intensely scrutinized? Wouldn’t you suspect some sort of bribery and or extortion in play here?

“In politics stupidity is not a handicap.” –Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)

For those who believe in omens, the triumphal announcement of the murder of Osama bin Laden, his son and various of his household (if it were he) by US., special forces, did not bode well.

Running at the bottom of Fox4O on the event was: “Reports: Obama Bin Laden Dead.” On Fox News, anchor Gerald Rivero announced that Mr Obama had been shot: “President Obama, speaking from the East Room of the White House (told) the nation and the world President Obama is in fact dead, it was a US., led strategic … Continue reading

This is an in-depth analysis of the modern state and the exercise of power behind the scenes. The speech is also an important historic document. Given in 1993 it issues a warning of the use of deception to justify going to war.

The speech also explains the expansion of the deregulated free market that would lead to a financial crisis as we see it today. The speech on Conspiracy and Class Power was lost for several years and only recently discovered in the collection of a listener in Seattle. Michael Parenti spoke before an overflow audience in Berkeley, CA. Continue reading
