1). Nitwit Nation: Is America Too Dumb for Democracy? By : Dan Nerhaugen
Most Americans are enthusiastic supporters of their own civic rights, but few bother to meet any would-be democrat's (or any would-be republican's, if you prefer) number-one responsibility: that of keeping oneself sufficiently literate and well informed to be able to vote rationally and knowledgeably. Mountains of too-long ignored evidence show tha...
2). Politics: The Corruption Curve By : Virginia Bola, PsyD
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." (Lord Acton)
We all like to think of ourselves as kind, honest, and benevolent. In our hearts, we are convinced that should we ever attain personal power, whether through building our own business, rising to the corporate executive of...
3). Containing the United States By : Sam Vaknin
European intellectuals yearned for the mutually exclusive: an America contained and a regime-changed Iraq. The Chinese are more pragmatic - though, bound by what is left of their Marxism, they still ascribe American behavior to the irreconcilable contradictions inherent in capitalism.
The United States is impelled by its economy and va...
4). America Beware, Hillary Clinton May Run For President By : David G. Hallstrom, Sr.
America is the greatest country in the world. Our citizens are caring, generous, trusting and forgiving. Those are some of the traits that make our country so great and so strong. Those traits can also be some of our biggest weaknesses. We are always willing to give people a second, third or even a fourth chance. We want to believe in the goodness ...
5). Venezuela Threatens to Cut off Oil Exports to US By : Elif Ozdemir
February 21th, 2006
by Elif Ozdemir
On Sunday, Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela, threatened Condoleezza Rice. Last Friday, he also made treats to discontinue exporting crude oil to America if they will still try to undermine his administration.
This is his response to previous statements made by Condoleza Rice th...
6). No Nobel Prize For War President By : Bill Gallagher
DETROIT -- George W. Bush doesn't like to play hurt but he has no choice. Every week now, he's getting clobbered. His Nixonian administration can only struggle to stop the bleeding, bandage the wounds and pray that the twin enemies of truth and time will stop. The Busheviks are in full retreat. Events, largely of their own creation, are overwhelmin...
7). Mayor Wonka and the New Orleans Chocolate Factory By : Rev. Michael Bresciani
Whether God sent a judgment to New Orleans for its sinfulness is open to debate and perhaps there is no way of knowing that answer until the fat lady sings. What Ray Nagin said about New Orleans being “a chocolate city” is a bit easier to weigh and it weighs in under the lightweight category for sure.
Since hurricane Katrina Ray Nagin ...
8). Wanted: And It Had Better Be Alive! By : J Square Humboldt
Pakistan did the USA a favor recently ...
All they got for it was a surprise rocket attack on their own soil.
The situation is well-explained by London's Sunday Telegraph in its 29 Jan 06 edition:
Pakistan 'delay let bin Laden escape US raid'
By Massoud Ansari in Karachi (Filed: 29/01/2006)
9). The Most Dangerous Place in the World – Right Here In America By : Rev. Michael Bresciani
To answer this great scourge of death with the bible is to begin with the premise that everyone believes that the bible has something to say about it and that it is authoritative. For those who have put the bible on the shelf with literature, simple narrative, history or fiction this premise is futile. Others who think the bible is a book of nice l...
10). Politics and the Internet By : M6.net
According to a recent poll conducted by ComputerWorld, about forty percent of the population believes that people can increase their political power by going online. Hence, many academics believe that people in western societies are becoming more technologically educated in order to gain more influence in the political sector. For example, Mr. Jeff...
11). Murtha Right, Bush Lies By : Bill Gallagher
DETROIT -- Privately, President George W. Bush is having a political panic attack as he retreats to his cocoon, seeking comfort from his nannies. Babs, his mommy, wife Laura, Condi Rice and Karen Hughes serve as his ladies in waiting, assuring our courageous leader that the boo-boos he gets on his head will get better and those bad boys criticizing...
12). The Madman and the Iraqi War By : Sam Vaknin
It is the war of the sated against the famished, the obese against the emaciated, the affluent against the impoverished, the democracies against tyranny, perhaps Christianity against Islam and definitely the West against the Orient. It is the ultimate metaphor, replete with "mass destruction", "collateral damage", and the "will of the international...
13). Thanks Mankind! By : Tyler
I got to thinking today and i have to say, we rock! Humans I mean. For some reason, as I sat there, eating my McDonalds, I started thinking about technology. Man was I impressed! We have so much, and we dont think about it enough. I suppose it really doesnt make much of a difference to think about it anyways, but life would just be so much harder i...
14). Relations With China By : David G. Hallstrom, Sr.
As far as I am concerened, the leaders of China are not now and never will be our friends or allies. The leaders of China do not care about anything other than amassing power and destroying their enemies and since everyone not Chinese is their enemy they feel that it is their duty to someday rule the world. As far as they are concerened the United ...
15). The Right To Die Should Be A Personal Matter By : David G. Hallstrom, Sr.
I believe that the right to die should, in most cases, be a personal matter and not a political matter (I am talking for adults, not for children. Children, and I include teenagers in this, have not lived long enough and do not have enough life experience to decide their own fates. Some of them think the world is at an end if they get a bad grade o...
16). Add Me to the List, Mr. Blair By : Sam Vaknin
The terrorists are winning. Gradually but perceptibly, the USA and the United Kingdom (UK) are shedding their liberal democratic veneer, axing their traditions, reinterpreting their constitution (USA) and case law (UK) and, thus, becoming police states.
Both the US Patriot Act, recently extended by Congress and Tony Blair's newly acqui...
17). The Caveman and the Alien By : Sam Vaknin
When Chancellor Kohl's party and Edith Cresson are suspected of gross corruption - these are labelled "aberrations" in an otherwise honest West. When NASA in collaboration with its UK counterpart blow a 130 million US dollars spacecraft to smithereens having confused the metric system for its pound/feet archaic predecessor - people nod their head i...
18). Bush Flirts with Fascism By : Bill Gallagher
DETROIT -- The regime has already produced so many ignominious legacies that historians in the near future will be able to feast on the task of measuring the damage from the wretched deeds the Busheviks have wrought.
Certainly, the unnecessary pre-emptive war in Iraq, sold with lies, will echo for generations as a symbol of America's ...
19). S. Francis and his friends’ television wins the elections! By : Francesca Viking Ortolani
I live in Lazio, the second most populated and industrialized region of Italy.
The first most populated region is Lombardia and there the Right (Right... large word) won.
The right won in Veneto, too... but the rest of Italy has all become red... and now you are waiting for me to say something.
Where do we want to...
20). Is Communism Dead Yet? By : David Snape
There are a handful of countries that are still considered communist regimes. Yet communism doesn't really exist. These countries are more like dictatorships with authoritarian type leaders who operate under the very thin veil of non-existent communism.
These groups or individual leaders that have near absolute power cause great harm t...
21). Contenders for Iraq and the Potential for Civil War By : Murad Ali
Iraq stands at the junction of three different and competing cultures for the control of the country. Kurds, Shia and Sunni Arabs all want to control their own affairs and that of the Iraqi state. Since each of them have their own distinct identity and their own supporters the potential for conflict is great. The first group entails the Kurdi...
22). Colors of the American Flag By : Regenia G. Butcher
I would imagine that even before the ink on the Declaration of Independence had dried, the sentences: "Are we gonna have a flag? We gotta have a flag! Britain has a flag!" were echoed by members of the Continental Congress. But then, a flag is important. It is a symbol representing a group and their beliefs -- a means of identification.
23). Lincoln Group-Republican Party, CIA spies?-Garfield Media Talking Head? By : Pinto Bean
CONSPIRACY, intrigue, bribery and influence that may go clear up the ladder to Presdient George W(eak) Bush, Lincoln Group seems to have it all. A company that seems to have materialized from out of the mist snags major DOD contracts, including one for a 100 million dollars in psyhops work. Included on their board is Christian Bailey, and Andrew Ga...
24). Let us learn to live with gorilla terrorism By : Dinesh singh
Terror is a frame of mind, it based in psycho disorder syndrome, which makes one mind dissatisfied with its existence. In today’s global village concept era the terrorism is threating the idea of one world, where international non governmental and governmental organizations are working hard to achieve millennium development goals to end hunger, ill...
25). Knowledge and Power By : Sam Vaknin
"Knowledge is Power" goes the old German adage. But power, as any schoolboy knows, always has negative and positive sides to it. Information exhibits the same duality: properly provided, it is a positive power of unequalled strength. Improperly disseminated and presented, it is nothing short of destructive. The management of the structure, content,...
26). Unforgettable Announcement that Shook the World By : Daniel Hunt
It has been more than a decade since the Cold War is over. Being used to the surprises of history, we need to recall some of the facts of the past in order to trace the political movements of that time and their ways to get public attention. International sporting events is a great way to attract attention to s certain issue. When the Cold War reac...

28). Bush's Holy Cronies have feet of clay By : Bill Gallagher
DETROIT -- Deception, arrogance, greed, hubris, corruption, incompetence and isolation -- the seven deadly sins of political life -- snared President George W. Bush and his cronies long ago. That's how they gained and maintain power.
While praying and thumbing their Bibles, loudly proclaiming their virtue and righteousness, the faith-...
29). Democrats Versus Republicans, The Battle Is Almost Over By : David G. Hallstrom, Sr.
The following are the opinions of the author and although I believe them to be true I am not stating them as anything other than my opinions.
Ever since the time of Abe Lincoln, Democrats and Republicans have been fighting for control of the United States Of America. In the beginning, both political parties contained liberals, moderat...
30). Real Campaign Finance Reform By : Derek Gulbranson
In the US we should be pretty aware that the outcome of our elections are largely influenced by how much money each candidate can raise. Whoever can raise the most money has the most chance of swaying the uninformed 'swing' voter, or hiring the best advisor that can dice the polls to figure out which issues will give them the slight majority. Polit...
