Economics is the science of abstrct numbers used against those that do not understand it to exploit the earth and human labor by enabling a system of exchange to dominate human culture.

Nice work. I like the use of imagery and so forth. I am of European decent, but I am not a practicing Christian or any other Money centric religious system. These systems are based on the instituationalization of a heirarchy called a priestly class and they are supported by money that is made and accepted from anyone that wishes to donate even those that commite crimes and so forth.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t return $10,000 in contributions he received from a coin dealer at the center of an Ohio investment scandal, a spokesman said Friday.

House Kills First Vote on Iraq Withdrawal
By : Mitch Jeserich - Thursday May 26, 2005
The House of Representatives voted down a measure, by a 128 to 300 vote, that called on President Bush to devise a plan for a withdrawal from Iraq. It came in the form of an amendment to the $491 billion budget for the Pentagon that was passed on Wednesday night. But the withdrawal amendment marks the first time that Congress has officially voted and debated legislation that deals with a withdrawal. "No, it won’t pass today, but it will give us a chance to talk about it," said (...)

The $3 Trillion Scam: An Economic 9-11?

An Economic 9-11? An interesting story appeared briefly a few days ago. Two men were arrested with three trillion (with a "t") in fake US Federal Reserve Negotiable Certificates, sometimes called "bearer bonds". What is interesting about the story is how the US Mainstream media pretty much ignored the whole thing. Considering the non-stop coverage given the Michael Jackson molestation trial, the avoidence of a story of a three trillion dollar crime called attention to itself. Details of (...)

One Sided CLASS WAR

Working harder for less while business lines its pockets THREE YEARS into an economic recovery, workers are losing ground—so much so that the mainstream media are finally having to take notice. Once inflation is taken into account, compensation for nonsupervisory workers in the private sector—about 80 percent of the workforce—dropped 0.4 percent in 2004. Analyses in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times blamed the usual suspects: globalization and the outsourcing of (...)

”That money could have been used to take care of soldiers” The Halliburton corporation, already the Iraq war’s poster child for ”waste, fraud and abuse”, has been hit with a new double-whammy. A report from the U.S. State Department accuses the company of ”poor performance” in its 1.2-billion-dollar contract to repair Iraq’s vital southern oil fields. And a powerful California congressman is charging that Defence Department audits showing (...)

Halliburton, the Houston-based oil services company, may have overcharged the US government by $212m (£113m, €165m) for work in Iraq, according to portions of Pentagon audits released yesterday. KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton formerly run by Vice-President Dick Cheney, came under fire last year following allegations that it had overcharged the government $62m in "unreasonable costs" for importing fuel from Kuwait to Iraq.

Inflation has outpaced the rise in salaries for the first time in 14 years. And workers are paying a bigger share of the cost of their healthcare. By Nicholas Riccardi Times Staff Writer For the first time in 14 years, the American workforce has in effect gotten an across-the-board pay cut. The growth in wages in 2004 and the first two months of this year trailed inflation, compounding the squeeze from higher housing, energy and other costs. The result is that people like Victor Romero (...)

The New Slavery

The average American in the year 2005 lives a fragile existence, in a struggle for survival that can be ended by missing a few paychecks. The carrot at the end of the stick which was formerly known as “the American dream” has been replaced by a whip that can best be described as the American nightmare of homelessness, and slow, early death. You no longer work to achieve a better life for yourselves and your children. You work to keep a roof over your head, and you pray that you (...)

It boasts no less than a dozen swimming pools and offers its guests activities such as windsurfing, banana boat rides and deep sea fishing. Every single one of the 84 luxurious air-conditioned villas face either the main pool, which is shaped like a giant guitar, or one of the two adjoining pools that resemble shimmering blue door keys.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
