Are we headed for a repeat of 1930s-style bank failures?
Essentially, this a Death Match for the central bank. The last time the Fed dropped rates twice in 10 days was the Panic of 1914. That year the New York Stock Exchange ceased trading for four and a half months. Will the Fed's emergency measures be enough to combat each mounting crisis?

Senators Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton and John McCain are rehashing the old political rhetoric that the Democrats and Republicans have coined to win elections every four years. However, in 2008, working people are searching for real solutions to complex issues; ending the Iraq War and dealing with a global industry that is beyond the control of the Democrats, Republicans or their candidates.

Bicyclist struck by bicycle-driver does "right" thing
Back on January 20th, a 68 year old man was riding his bicycle, when a young female driver blew a red light, then thumped the bicyclist, sending him careening to the pavement. Since I am, myself, of similar age, I know that had to hurt. From this point, the story becomes a little cloudy, to say the least. First, my curiosity was piqued when I noticed how the press, and the citizen loving Clackamas County Sheriff's Office kept praising the "young" driver, one Amanda WILLARD, for "doing the right thing." Many news articles were printed, and the Sheriff's Office put out an inordinate number of bulletins praising her, because, she actually stopped, and asked the poor, old, dazed victim if he was alright, before getting into her car, and leaving him, seated on the curb.

Chavez: “Colombia is the Israel of Latin America.”
Monday, March 03, 2008 (venezuelanalysis.com) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez labeled Colombia the "Israel of Latin America" on his Sunday talk show Aló Presidente yesterday. Responding to events on Saturday in which the Colombian military made an illegal attack across the border in Ecuadorian territory, the Venezuelan leader called Colombia a "terrorist state," and gave orders to mobilize troops on the Venezuelan-Colombian border.

"The Colombian government has turned into the Israel of Latin America," said Chavez during his show on Sunday.

"Colombia is a terrorist state that is subject to the great terrorist, the government of the United States and their apparatus," he explained.

In any event, Hillary's bid to capture the Democratic Party's presidential nod is fading faster than the value of the U.S. dollar. In the debates, she's come across as abrasive. Her attack dog tactics are failing. If Sen. Barack Obama carries Texas and Ohio, will Hillary fold? Stay tuned!

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Modern Liberal
We live in scary times. And no one scares me more than the faux-liberals of today. They are a most intolerant mob that has become so dislodged from logic that they'd rather gaze reverently at the false packaging of hope than seriously contemplate the issues of the day. They love bandwagons and hate activism. They strive for insular popularity while trampling the populace. And, in the true spirit of fundamentalism, they loathe dissent and flog the dissenter with the kind of glee that is seemingly borrowed from Jimmy Swaggart's beating of the ungodly unbelievers.

The Neocons’ Ties to the 9/11 Commission’s Report
Cover 9/11 Book There was little chance that the 9/11 Commission was going to establish the full truth. One reason why: Its Executive Director, the Neocon-loving Philip D. Zelikow, had his own agenda, to wit: protecting the interest of the Bush-Cheney Gang and linking "Al-Qaeda to Iraq." Zelikow had previously written a book with Condi Rice, authored a paper used to justify the preemptive attack on Iraq and worked on Bush's presidential transition team in 2000/2001.

Burnong and Alooting; Justification of destruction under an oppressive regime.
I recently tried to publish this article on an anarcho-capitalist site and got turned down because my advocacy to destroy some property was "the opposite" of freedom and liberty. My own personal conclusion is that many anarcho-capitalists are too well-off to really want to see any change happen. Destruction is inevitable in times of change. Hell, Thomas Jefferson (who these libertarians/anarcho-capitalists profoundly admire) was one of the best anarchists there's ever been and some of his views can be seen when quoted;
