CEO Creep: 1300 Violations a Part of Running a Mine that Killed 25 Workers
CEO Blankenship is a true believer in God. That gives him the right to endanger his workers, endanger coal communities, and endanger the planet to amass his ungodly wealth. He will praise Jesus and live lavishly and comfortably, knowing that the most that is likely to happen to him is that Massey Energy will pay another fine for the deaths of the miners. Just like he had to do in the past.
The Passion of the Pope: Propaganda and Blame Games
According to the Pope's personal preacher Father Raniero Cantalamessa, in a Good Friday Sermon, the Pope is suffering like that of Jews enslaved and gassed in Nazi work camps or tortured during the inquisitions.
US Marine: I will Fight American Civilians
For well over a decade the American military has been engaging in training exercises in US cities. The Military claims it is preparing for wars in cities because that is where the wars will be fought. They are almost certainly correct. But there is likely something more going on with these war simulations.
Hannity's Hoaxes: The Uncharitable Scamming of the Gullible
It is certainly shameful that a great deal of the money generated for Hannity's charity actually goes for consultants and expenses. But what is even more shameful is that the very policies that Hannity and the other clownish right wing radio talkers advocate have contributed so much suffering of the Veterans and their families.

Was the Iraq War 'a Horrible Mistake'?
The Iraqi war is now being made to appear as a bumbling bloody mistake when in fact there was no bumbling involved. It was no mistake from the perspective of the financial and corporate elite and their 'war criminal' political puppets.
The 'Invisible' Black Atheist
Wright and others argue that embracing the religion of the oppressors has led to a mindset of oppression. Thus, accepting the slave master's paradigm of reality has led to invisible chains of social, political, and economic injustice. Christianity is merely a tool to continue the oppression.

In Memory of Malcolm X
The life and legacy of Malcolm X is one of integrity and courage. The courage to stand up to oppression and to live a life of integrity.
How to Have Peace
A mind centered in the reality and awareness of existence, transformed from mindfulness and meditation, will realize that peace is something that can arise in ourselves so that we can work to help manifest it in the world.
The New Progressive, Eco-Friendly Bin Laden
In some surreal Madison Avenue Edward Bernays style of advertising campaign, Bin Laden has become a spokesman for Progressive and Environmental ideas and causes. He is being used by the Military Industrial Complex to negatively brand Progressive-ism and Environmentalism with Terrorism.
Haiti Relief Supplies Sit at Airport--Why?
This lack of an effective aid response seems eerily reminiscent of Hurricane Katrina here in the US when supplies and manpower were not mobilized to save lives in New Orleans.
What is even more amazing is that President Obama has tapped former President George W. Bush to help with the Haiti relief effort.
A Sure Shot for Jesus--Removing Blind Spots
I am not sure what the meaning behind the bible codes on the high powered rifle sights. But I guess that the company putting them there must think it will help make the shooter a better shot. Or perhaps the company thinks that it will give the shooters more comfort in their holy work.
Ireland's Blasphemy Law a Blasphemous Mislead
A blasphemy law is blasphemous to the wonderful ideas and ideals that arose during the Enlightenment and blasphemous to the democratic tradition and principles proclaimed (but not often practiced) here in the West.
Congressman Ron Paul "Anti Semitic" for Questioning
What is wrong with Ron Paul?
First, he tells us that the Federal Reserve is a private institution that should be audited and now he tells us this way out 'Jew hating' theory that people that are occupied and bombed will strike back.
Say Goodbye to TV Land
We have bought TV reality and in the process, we have degraded our consciousness. In a sense, we have destroyed our minds for a Big Mac.

The Rise of Robots, What Would the Buddha Think?
As humanity takes control of its own evolution man and machine will likely evolve into a cybernetic organism. But no matter how we evolve in the future, there will still be as much need for ethics and compassion.
