The collapse of the United States is accelerating : Oil in Euros vs. US dollars
By : chycho - Sunday May 4, 2008
2 comments
In the last eight years implementing the plans for the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) designed "to promote American global leadership" has backfired. To accomplish PNAC’s goals, all threats needed to be eliminated. From the onset, the United Sates earmarked two countries as mortal enemies: Venezuela and Iran. With Venezuela, it is well documented that the CIA attempted to overthrow the democratically elected government of Chavez. And with Iran, the United States (...)

America, Fight Back : Nationalize the Oil Industry!
By : William Hughes - Friday April 25, 2008
“We know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road. They get run over.” - Ambrose Bierce Are you sick and tired of being at the mercy of the grasping plutocrats who run Big Oil? Gasoline is now selling at $3.50 a gallon, as the price of a barrel of oil nears $120, with no end in sight to further increases. Meanwhile, the American economy is sinking faster than the Titanic. The dollar, too, is in sharp decline. Mortgage foreclosures are at depression era highs. (...)

Venezuela requires Euros for some oil contracts Fri Mar 14, 2008 1:30pm EDT CARACAS, March 14 (Reuters) - Venezuela is requiring payments in euros on some contracts for crude, oil product and spot sales, Energy Minister Rafael Ramirez told Reuters on Friday.

How Oil Burst the American Bubble By Michael T. Klare The economic bubble that lifted the stock market to dizzying heights was sustained as much by cheap oil as by cheap (often fraudulent) mortgages. Likewise, the collapse of the bubble was caused as much by costly (often imported) oil as by record defaults on those improvident mortgages. Oil, in fact, has played a critical, if little commented upon, role in America’s current economic enfeeblement — and it will continue to (...)

In a snow-covered China, entire regions are without electricity and gas The energy shortfall has reached 70 gigawatts, equal to the production of all of Great Britain.

Tar Sands Processing requires massive inputs of water, energy, land, labour
By : The Dominion - Monday January 7, 2008
For each barrel of oil produced from the tar sands, between two and 4.5 barrels of water is needed. The waste sand and water contain naphtha and paraffin, which are used in the extraction process, and oil leftovers like benzene, naphthenic acid and polyaromatic hydrocarbon, among others. Chemicals found in the tailing ponds are known to cause liver problems and brain hemorrhaging in mammals, and deformities and death in birds.

Whilst teeming with a vast diversity of life, Indonesia’s lush rainforests are quite simply disappearing — meaning that its eco-system and climate processes are sorely being affected. 75 percent of the nation’s rainforests have already been cut down by loggers wishing to exploit the opportunity to make huge profits feeding the insatiable worldwide demand for timber. Many of the logging companies act illegally, aided by distributive corruption at every level of (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
