How much longer are we going to protest and post online reports, rants, videos and launch campaigns that will hopefully raise awareness on issue after issue, problem after problem, as the situation gets worse? Continue reading →
It’s been two years since years of hard work, dedication and frustration finally erupted into mass protests that swept across the globe on an unprecedented scale, and briefly awakened the propagandized masses.

In this edition of Press TV’s on the edge with Max Keiser, Max discusses the link between the worker’s struggle in Wisconsin and the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia with the journalist and blogger, David DeGraw.

Even if you believe Unions have been corrupted, in this case you have to go with the strategy: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
I was sent an article yesterday that described a worst case scenario in the BP Gulf oil spill which described a possibility that sounded too horrifying to be true.
