It’s capitalism or a habitable planet - you can’t have both
By : Robert Newman - Sunday February 5, 2006
1 comment
Our economic system is unsustainable by its very nature. The only response to climate chaos and peak oil is major social change by Robert Newman There is no meaningful response to climate change without massive social change. A cap on this and a quota on the other won’t do it. Tinker at the edges as we may, we cannot sustain earth’s life-support systems within the present economic system. Capitalism is not sustainable by its very nature. It is predicated on infinitely (...)

Corporate Wealth Share Rises for Top-Income Americans
By : DAVID CAY JOHNSTON - Tuesday January 31, 2006
By DAVID CAY JOHNSTON Published: January 29, 2006 New government data indicate that the concentration of corporate wealth among the highest-income Americans grew significantly in 2003, as a trend that began in 1991 accelerated in the first year that President Bush and Congress cut taxes on capital. In 2003 the top 1 percent of households owned 57.5 percent of corporate wealth, up from 53.4 percent the year before, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis of the latest income (...)

America Is Being Plundered by the Global Elite
By : notepad - Tuesday January 31, 2006
3 comments
by The August Review America is For Sale. The sale is "under the table" in that the American people don’t have a clue that it’s being slowly sold out from under their feet, one piece at a time. The sale is deceptive because as the red ink grows larger and larger, we are told by these same globalists that trade and budget deficits don’t really matter that much. The sale is dishonest because it was planned from the beginning by elitist groups like the Trilateral (...)

Iran’s Oil Exchange Threatens the Greenback
By : Anne - Friday January 27, 2006
4 comments
The Bush administration will never allow the Iranian government to open an oil exchange (bourse) that trades petroleum in euros. If that were to happen, hundreds of billions of dollars would come flooding back to the United States crushing the greenback and destroying the economy. This is why Bush and Co. is planning to lead the nation to war against Iran. It is straightforward defense of the current global system and the continuing dominance of the reserve currency, the dollar. The claim (...)

Fearing Social Unrest, China Tries to Rein in Unbridled Capitalism
By : China - Monday January 23, 2006
1 comment
With a fast-graying population, increasing pollution and environmental damage and the absence of a real social system, Beijing is now seeking to check unbridled capitalism and quell flaring social tensions. Not so long ago, nouveau-riche Chinese could be seen standing in lines several hundred yards long. They were registering to purchase luxury condos in Shanghai — such was the demand. Hoping that prices would continue to rise — as they have over the past four years, by a full (...)

Collapse of U.S. Economy Imminent
By : notepad - Saturday January 21, 2006

In its attempt to establish a world empire dominating every nation on the planet, the U.S. has exhausted its ability to finance the expansion and the country now faces imminent financial collapse. From all indications, it looks like 2006 will spell the end for America. Consider these five important points: Point #1 The U.S., Great Britain and Israel are preparing to attack Iran. As it appears the main reason for invading Iraq was to stop it from selling oil in Euros, likewise Iran has (...)

By Philip Shishkin in Faizabad, Afghanistan, and David Crawford in Berlin, The Wall Street Journal The suspicious whirring of a motor came from somewhere in the dark skies above the river separating Northern Afghanistan from Tajikistan. Tajik border guards say they shouted warnings and then opened fire. What fell out of the sky was a motorized parachute carrying 18 kilograms of heroin. It was a small drop in a mighty flood of Afghan heroin that is reshaping the world drug market. Once (...)

Even Without a Union, Florida Wal-Mart Workers Use Collective Action to Enforce Rights
By : Nick Robinson - Friday January 20, 2006
by Nick Robinson Workers at Wal-Mart and other big-box retail chains-like workers in any mostly nonunion industry with low pay and tense, dreary working conditions-are generally a disgruntled lot. In central Florida, Wal-Mart workers are fighting and sometimes winning campaigns using collective action to solve both shop floor and larger industry-wide problems. In one rural Florida town, over 20 percent of workers in the local Wal-Mart had their hours cut. In response, workers went into (...)

US Pensions: Capitalist Disaster
By : Rick Wolff - Monday January 9, 2006
1 comment
by Rick Wolff The US pension systems for workers are now widespread disasters. Many corporations and many cities and states lack the money to pay all the benefits they have promised and legally owe to present and future retirees. Estimates of the shortfall range around $450 billion in the private sector plus at least another $300 billion in the public sector. Retired workers with lost or reduced pensions suffer extra strain on family and household finances. Millions now working expect (...)

Programmed To Be Shallow?

by Wayne Besen Giving new meaning to a pyramid scheme, a recent New York Times article discussed how the pharmaceutical industry hires college cheerleaders as its drug representatives. "They don’t ask what the major is," T. Lynn Williamson, a cheering advisor for University of Kentucky, said of the drug companies who turn to the school to find pompom pill pushers. Of course, the pharmaceutical giants would have us believe it’s coincidental that their reps look like runway (...)

Chad angry at World Bank over oil
By : Chad - Sunday January 1, 2006
1 comment
Chad has reacted angrily to warnings from the World Bank, after its parliament voted to relax controls on the use of its oil revenues. The government has accused the World Bank of acting like a coloniser. The body lent Chad more than $39m (£23m) to build a pipeline with an estimated total cost of almost $4bn. It was on condition that Chad’s churches, trade unions and non-governmental organisations monitored how oil revenues were spent. This was meant to guaranteed that oil money (...)

$8 Billion in Bonuses awarded to Defense Contractors, "regardless of performance"
By : Tony Capaccio - Tuesday December 20, 2005
1 comment
The Defense Department paid contractors $8 billion over five years in bonuses on weapons programs that were often dogged by severe cost overruns, performance problems and delays, the Government Accountability Office said. The agency, an independent auditor for Congress, reviewed 93 of 597 military contracts in force between 1999 and 2004 that included the possibility of a bonus. Contractors on average were awarded about 90 percent of the bonus money available, the agency said in the draft (...)

Have you noticed that if you do a web search for Walmart Video on Google, all you get is news about renting video’s from Walmart? There must be a way to get these engines to be picking up the 6000 showings of the "Walmart Video" as part of these searches. I’ve seen reference to showings in the brief descriptions of some entries. But I’ve been trying for 10 minutes using Google to bring up the webpage of the group that is promoting and selling that video. I wonder if (...)

The New Cooperative Movement in Venezuela’s Bolivarian Process

By Camila Piñeiro Harnecker I arrived in Caracas in July 2005 with a few contacts at different cooperatives, anxious about how I would sort through the more than 70,000 cooperatives that the Superintendencia Nacional de Cooperativas (National Superintendence of Cooperatives — SUNACOOP) had referred to in its recent press statements. Indeed, I found cooperatives everywhere. Between one night and the next morning, I stumbled on cooperatives in some rather unexpected places: a group of (...)

World Interest Banking System is the FRAUD that drives TERRORISM, WAR, and POVERTY

It is interesting to note, that especially in the 20th and now the 21st century that the business of banking is the LARGEST and MOST powerful business in the world, claiming secretly ownership of most of the worlds resources, lands, labor forces, and markets. It is interesting because the financial news is full of information about such mind control topics about price of stocks, housing, labor, and a number of other so-called economic factors. But in a system that affects us all it has not (...)

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. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

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. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

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.

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

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 (...)
