We Have 4 Days to Stop the Chickenhawks From Starting War in Iran

This is a good article describing how you can make the case against the war in Iran. I can't believe this even needs to be said. I mean, for Christ's sake, does no one have any sense anymore in the states? Can no one stop the crazies? It's unreal to me.


We have four days to head off a war with Iran. That's four days to compile, distill, and disseminate information that will undercut corporate media collusion with a desperate Bush administration to open a third front in Bush's wars. We are at a disadvantage, since we are up against professionals with multi-million-dollar budgets. We have an advantage in that their message is predictable and aimed at idiots and cowards.

What Could We Buy for the Price of the War?

So, instead of killing 600,000 people, what else could the U.S. do with the money? A lot it turns out. 30% of American's energy usage could have been converted to renewable sources, they could have gotten universal health care, or a lot of other things. This article lays it out quite well. I can't imagine that the amount of oil they get from this war could possibly be worth more than a lifetime of renewable energy. And it certainly isn't worth the cost in human lives.

America's Comptroller General Explains How Screwed the Economy Is

It's always good to hear it from the top, and this guy is the head accountant for the whole country. It says a lot that he's decided to spend his time educating the people rather than dealing with the current administration. Like talking to a brick wall I tell 'ya.


It is absurd. You are safe. I am safe. This nation is safe. Quit being such a damned pussy. All of you.

It feels good that he got that off of his chest.

Why People Vote for Bush

This article explains very well the mechanism of using fear of death to control the population and make them do what you want. Bush's entire political empire was built around this principle, and fully explains how he keeps people in his camp, and why every speech he makes has to pound the words 9/11, Iraq, Al Qaeda, and Bin Laden into your head as much as possible.

Atheist Societies are Happy Societies

According to a major study there’s a very strong correlation between atheism and societal health. Here are the most non-religious countries in the world, according to the findings:

1. Sweden
2. Vietnam
3. Denmark
4. Norway
5. Japan
6. Czech Republic
7. Finland
8. France
9. South Korea
10. Estonia

From the paper:

High levels of organic atheism are strongly correlated with high levels of societal health, such as low homicide rates, low poverty rates, low infant mortality rates, and low illiteracy rates, as well as high levels of educational attainment, per capita income, and gender equality. Most nations characterized by high degrees of individual and societal security have the highest rates of organic atheism, and conversely, nations characterized by low degrees of individual and societal security have the lowest rates of organic atheism. In some societies, particularly Europe, atheism is growing. However, throughout much of the world – particularly nations with high birth rates – atheism is barely discernible.

The Puppy Prinicple


10 Years in Jail for Selling Lightbulbs

In the spring of 1994, the Tucker family received lengthy prison sentences -- 10 years for Steve, 16 years for his older brother Gary, and 10 years for his brother's wife, Joanne -- without possibility of parole, for the curiously worded federal crime of "conspiracy to manufacture marijuana."

Yet federal prosecutors never charged them with buying, selling, growing, transporting, smoking or even possessing marijuana. An 18-month DEA investigation had failed to turn up direct evidence connecting the Tuckers to even a single joint.

Instead, they were locked away for selling the lamps, fertilizer and gardening hardware from the small hydroponic supply shop Gary operated on Buford Highway that enabled their customers to grow pot.

Unconstitutional government has created a war crisis, a financial crisis, a dollar crisis, and a freedom crisis. But we don’t have to take it. We don't have to passively accept more dead soldiers, a lower standard of living, rising prices, a national ID, eavesdropping on our emails and phone calls, and all the rest.We can return to first principles, and build the brightest, most brilliant future any people on earth has ever aspired to.

Friend's New Travel Website

My friend Adam has launched a really cool new travel website, Vibe Agent which specializes in finding the perfect hotel based on your lifestyle needs. It's very slick and interactive, and it makes this chore actually enjoyable. And I'm not just saying that. I was just looking for hotels for a holiday and realized how crap all the other options were. He needs a bit more content, but there's a lot being added every day, and since it's only been in beta for a couple months, you can't ask too much. If anyone wants an invite, let me know.

Where's the inflation?

Everything that you can't trade with China:


The Crash of 2007-2008

The immediate triggers are being described quite well: the collapse of the U.S. subprime mortgage market; the vulnerability of the rest of the economy to the subprime undertow, due to the “efficiency” of the markets in spreading risk; the worldwide overextension of cheap credit; the failure of large institutional investors and Wall Street brokerages to behave responsibly; and the long-term effects of the U.S. trade and fiscal deficits which are now coming home to roost.

Amazingly, some commentators have been asking “if the monetary crisis will affect the producing economy,” and whether a recession lies ahead. In reality, the U.S. producing economy has been in a recession for the last year. This is shown most clearly by the decline in M1, the portion of the money supply immediately available to people for making purchases.
