Holland: All elections manipulated - except one
31 Oct 2006
In Holland people can 'vote' in the 22 November election. Or now play chess with the 1187 hacked and easily manipulated electronic voting computers. It's scary to see what the creatures in power do to screw the people. Taking away everybody's vote and voice too.

The Rise and Fall of the UN
29 Oct 2006
One’s opinion of the United Nations reveals a lot about political consciousness; and because perception is usually based on experience, it’s only natural that people from different countries have opposing views about the UN and its pillar institutions— the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, and the World Trade Organization (WTO).
