The eyewall of a hurricane
At the center of the hurricane, all is calm, and an observer looking up and around would see a towering circular ring of clouds rising into the heavens, the eyewall of the hurricane. As dreadfully powerful as these storms can be, the eyewall is still a majestic beautiful thing.

Tidy concepts like competition and free markets don't apply in this industry, where the executives of each company know everything about the "competition" without even asking, and where the government is happy to let them suck the profits out of the public's pockets like crude from a gusher.

The Shriver auditorium on the Johns Hopkins U. campus was packed to capacity to hear the anti-Iraqi War messages of her and others. Sheehan said, we need an "Opposition Party" and that Congress is mostly made up of cowards, who have given "a liar" and "a maniac," - George W. Bush - the power to invade Iraq. If Congress doesn't shape up, she said: "Fire them!"

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The Bush-Cheney Gang gave the store away in the so-called "Energy Bill." It granted $4 billion in tax breaks to Big Oil, despite the fact that ExxonMobil had profits of $24 billion last year! Now, environmentalists rallying in Washington, D.C., on 09/20/05, suspect that parts of the pristine Arctic Wildlife Refuge will soon be opened up to oil drilling. At the protest, RFK, Jr., labeled George Bush: "The worst environmental president in U.S. history!"

Socialism or Barbarism
More than a decade ago, with the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the strategists of Capital launched an unprecedented ideological offensive against socialism and Marxism. For them, capitalism had won. However, what had collapsed was not socialism, but a system of bureaucratic rule, i.e., Stalinism. Nevertheless, this ferocious offensive had the effect of starting an ideological stampede to the right within the working class movement internationally. The left-reformists switched sides, like a man changing his shirt, to become rightwing attorneys for capitalism. In Russia and Eastern Europe former "Communists" transformed themselves into capitalists. Since that time, the political pendulum has swung far to the right, epitomised by the victory of Blairism in Britain and of neo-Conservatism in the United States.

“Iraq is a No-Win, No-End War!” - Max Cleland
Max Cleland On Sept. 15, 2005, a Congressional "Forum" was held on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. It was chaired by anti-Iraqi War advocate, Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). She accused the Bush-Cheney Gang of creating a "bloody and ruinous debacle," in Iraq, and that it was long past the time to discuss exit strategies. Max Cleland, a witness at the Forum and a Vietnam War veteran, and ex-U.S. Senator, said, "Iraq is a No-Win, No-End War!"

The round of protest rallies organized by trade union centres and civil society groups kicked off in Lagos yesterday. Many other rallies are planned for other regions of Nigeria and the grand finale is programmed to take place in Abuja, the capital. These rallies are a direct response of the working class to the pro-IMF/World Bank agenda of the Obasanjo regime. He recently ordered the increase in the price of fuel from 50 Naira to 65 Naira, this is the 9th time Obasanjo has done this since he came to power in 1999.

With each passing day, the immense scale of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina emerges more clearly, along with the enormity of the effort required to rebuild homes and social infrastructure for nearly two million people. Nearly 700 bodies have been recovered so far, and the death toll seems certain to mount into the thousands as houses cut off by high water become accessible to search crews.

The Animatronic Presidency
It's way past time to demand a total manufacturer's recall on the world's first Animatronic Presidency. I know, the voters lost their chance in 2004 when they let the limited four year product warranty expire. However, that limited warranty does NOT apply to life-threatening defects in parts and workmanship or willful negligence on the part of the Manufacturer.

In this case, the defects have proven quite lethal, en masse, and the
workmanship shoddy and fatally flawed. At first, it was lethal only to
innocent bystanders (upwards of a hundred thousand in Iraq,
Afghanistan, etc), but now, it has proven highly lethal to thousands of
the end users themselves (the Gulf Coast, among other places).
