AUDACITY IN NORWAY!: It's a morbid joke, right? Barack Obama? Nobel Peace Prize?
11 Oct 2009
The Audacity of Hype! Not since Henry Kissinger was given "the Peace Prize" in 1973 has the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize involved such a sad and tragic irony. Between now and delivering his "Peace" Prize acceptance speech, Obama will be sending drones to bomb mostly collaterally innocent people every week (in their homes, marketplaces, villages, and even wedding parties). He will be continuing to operate George 'Dubya' Bush's practically beyond-the-law, rendition-torture gulags (notoriously, Gitmo & Bagram). He will be expanding the technological advancements, types and potential "usability" of U.S. nuclear weapons (while supposedly also being awarded "for his attempts to curb nuclear proliferation"). And, he will be, upon their every request, militarily resupplying a racist apartheid state (Israel) with cumulatively billions of dollars worth of cluster, DIME and phosphorus bombs, no matter how many fleeing families upon whom that state will use those execrable terror weapons. The Nobel Peace Committee must still be high on the 'Obamalade' to make such a blatant mockery of what the Nobel prize for peace(!) should stand for. Or, should they now call it the Nobel "Peace Is War" Prize? [ --JA]

U.S. IMPERIALISM IN THE PHILIPPINES
11 Oct 2009
More than a century after the brutal colonization of the Philippines by the U.S. in the Filipino-American War of 1899-1913, U.S. troops continue to battle the Moros and the nationalist insurgents in the Philippines. Obama's support of the bloody Arroyo regime guilty with notorious human rights violations will not end until the US public understand the U.S. involvement in the Philippines. E. San Juan's recent works are valuable in this regard.

Bush Nazi Swine Flu; 1918 Spanish Flu Deja Vu
10 Oct 2009
GHW Bush revealed that the Anthrax that is being used to terrorize the populace with the current flu epidemic is being produced at hundreds of bogus government Anthrax production sites nationwide by the Bush Nazi Devil worshippers who believe that Moses was a bioterrorist. This flu epidemic is a pathetic attempt to duplicate the Spanish Flu of 1918. Once you get them to admit that the flu is not a virus, just say, "This is not a bullet!"

Barter Is Patriotic
09 Oct 2009
"The story of American money, which occupies a period of about three centuries, began when the early settlers in New England carried on their fur trade with the indians through the use of wampum, which had been fashioned from mussel shells in the form of beads. Beaver skins, wampum, and in Virginia, tobacco, soon became the common accepted media of exchange for all other available commodities. The immigrants, in fact, had little use for coined money at first, but when traders arrived from foreign lands, coins were usually demanded in payment for goods."
