The Corporate Superpower of Superpowers by RALPH NADER (Counerpunch)
By : Joëlle - Sunday April 2, 2006
An Open Letter to New Exxon/Mobil CEO, Rex Tillerson April 1, 2006 Mr. Tillerson: You have to be feeling pretty good about your new position heading the world’s largest oil and gas company. You stand astride the globe where, with few exceptions, the Congress is like putty in your hands, the White House is your House and the consuming public is powerless. Governments in the Third World may huff and puff, but Exxon/Mobil pretty much gets its way in dozens of arrangements completed (...)

Billionaire Thailand PM gives Satan Sign before phony election
By : Sebastien Berger - Sunday April 2, 2006
Is the Thai PM telling the world that he is a satan worshipper? Thailand’s prime minister has a giant fortune, a loving and grateful family and the adoration of some, if not all, of his public. To that list he can now add what might appear every politician’s dream: an election without an opposition. Thaksin Shinawatra stands tomorrow in a poll in which his party’s only company on the ballot paper will be a list of fringe groups and "None of the Above" - the box that (...)

Fortune Magazine/Nelson D. Schwartz A year ago Tamiflu was known, if at all, as an obscure remedy for influenza, which doctors typically treat with bed rest and chicken soup. Today, with panic mounting over a potential bird flu pandemic, it’s the most sought-after drug in the world, as everyone from suburban soccer moms in the U.S. to health officials in London and Taipei scramble to stockpile the pill. At the moment, it seems, virtually the entire world is on sick-chicken alert. (...)

“An Arab company is going to take over the port! More at 11...” - (A highly agitated news reader on a local TV station.) Baltimore, MD - It was painful to listen to the disinformation about the deal which would have allowed the Dubai Ports World company of the United Arab Emirates to handle the stevedoring operations in six U.S., ports, including Baltimore’s. The voices coming from the TV screen, usually dripping with hysteria, would screech: “An Arab company is (...)

The wave of bipartisan protest over a Dubai company managing U.S. ports is a tempest in an election
By : Jonah Goldberg: - Tuesday March 14, 2006
Going overboard The wave of bipartisan protest over a Dubai company managing U.S. ports is a tempest in an election year. DID YOU HEAR the one about Dick Cheney, a priest and a rabbi walking into an Arab-run port? No? Too bad, because the brouhaha that has replaced Cheney-mania is a lot less entertaining. This week brought a strange bipartisan convergence over, of all things, the commercial management of U.S. ports. Bipartisan consensus is often a troubling sign, particularly when (...)

He was commenting on PBS, and I thought I heard a little quaver in his voice when he said this was no big deal. Brooks consulted "the experts," and they assured him there’s no national security risk in a foreign company owned by Middle East Muslims—actually, by an Arab government—managing six major American (...)

The classroom was packed to capacity with students in every seat and squeezed in on the floor. A flyer passed around showed where the $39.99 paid for a UVA sweatshirt goes ($2.40 in royalties to the university, $0.20 in pay to the workers who made it).

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
