This was originally an editorial opinion about the Bush Administration budget published here in 2006. But tell me, isn't the Obama Adminstration budget exactly the same?

Manufacturing Poor People
That the majority of the world's people are poor is not an accident. It is a very deliberately designed plan to keep the "First", or Western, World's foot on the neck of the "Third" World in order to take everyone's piece of the cake and serve it up to the very few on the tippy top of the economic pyramid. And it's disgusting.

THE KILLING FLOOR
The financial "elite" in the U.S. are in the process of using the financial "crisis" they created to commit financial genocide. WAKE UP!!

The Car Czar's plan to gut America's autoworkers
Here it is, a perfect cameo of the living standards here in the U.S. of A., the truly classless society. Obama's $600 million dollar man is demanding a pound of eyes and teeth from U.S. autoworkers.

Debt. It's Better Than Chains.
It seems there's no way out of the slave system of capitalism. You will either be chattel, owned outright, wage-slaves who recycle the Masters' money to them, or debt-slaves who will enrich the Masters via compound interest and made-up fees. Money for nothing. Not a lick of work. What's wrong with this picture?
What Norwegians Would Do
Is there a country on the planet whose citizens can expect economic justice? Yes. And who would those citizens be? Norwegians would.

Deja Moo, I Think I've Heard This Bull Before
Isn't doing the same thing over and over again Einstein's definiton of insanity? Isn't denial more than a river in Egypt? How mentally-challenged are we to keep biting off the same piece of bull that we have had repeatedly demonstrated to us that we can't chew?
In Memoriam: Two for the Troops
As we remember our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, let's remember how America chooses to treat them. For all they are asked to do, when they pay "the ultimate price," they might as well be M.I.A. as far as our government is concerned.

Intelligence Is a Piano
Intelligence is a piano. And ours is out of tune. It takes practice to use it for the purpose for which it was intended. Our practice has been hijacked by consumerism and our deliberate thought all but cancelled via indoctrination. We need a LOT of piano tuners! Won't you join us?

Here's another way to look at those "view-destroying" wind farms. This on is in Madison County, New York.
When navigating the Seas of Life, take care not to confuse the tools of navigation with your destination.

Global Social Democracy is being promoted by the "left" side of the global elite as the new face of capitalism after neoliberals trashed its reputation.

Fat Man and Little Boy
The US and Israel are the Fat Man and Little Boy of global destruction. Only Earth itself can stop them.

The Loyalty Oath
Concessions demanded of the United Auto Workers are essentially the same as the loyalty oath to be demanded of Palestinian Israeli citizens. Both demand submission to the boot of the ruling class on your neck.

IDF - Israeli Defense Fantasy
The erasure of Israel as a topic from the Durbin Conference on racism enables the Israeli "Defense" Force to carry out Israel's apartheid agenda with impunity.

Instrument of Power
Rich&Powerful, Inc. have a union, all right, and they want to make sure we don't get one, too. And to that end they'll do anything, literally anything, to undermine the solidarity of America's, and the world's, working people.

Seeing Aphrodite in April
The inability to let go of youth, of spring, requires not only that we be eternal adolescents, but prematurely old-stick-in-the-muds.
April showers bring may flowers, when they aren't the showdown between thunder and lightning that seems like Nature has our names on a Wanted Poster.

It's cold and shameful out there on the Food Bank Distribution line.

Myths like that of Santa Claus, lies told to children, set them up to expect betrayal by "authority", facilitating the transfer of their loyalty and trust to corporations.

The poor are created, deliberately, by the rich, who are so insecure, so devoid of morality, that they need to have those "less fortunate" envy them and believe it is their divine, Darwinian right to do so.
