NYC "A Day Without Immigrants," mid-rally observations

N Whelan | I arrived at Union Square around 2pm. Turnout looked low at that point and I wondered if maybe the police hadn’t overestimated the crowds, what with their ubiquitous paddy-wagon presence. There were about a few hundred people milling about, blowing whistles and waving flags. It seemed not all the immigrants took the day off, as an enterprising few pushed carts through and hocked those infernal whistles, and flags of every color and stripe.... more...  0 Comments

Modern Christianity: A Flock of Lost Sheep

sadhu | Christianity today has become a misleading term and a very confusing ‘business’. Proclaiming one’s faith as ‘Christian’ no longer identifies the believer in a specific sense – there are more Christian denominations, groups and sub-groups than I would care to mention. Gone is the ‘one faith’, ‘one God’ principle that identifies all true religions; today there are ‘gelicos, penticos, charismaticos, deicos, bapticos, methicos’ and on it goes. The ‘religion’ is severely fragmented, each splintered faction claiming divine authority and status as the true religion (a perfectly absurd situation). more...  3 Comments

The Politics of Oil: The Discourse Must Change

Editors of The Oil Drum | Leaders of both political parties are expressing concern about the high price of gasoline. President George Bush announced yesterday that he was suspending deliveries to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in order to make more oil available to consumers as well as putting on hold the traditional regulations requiring additives to make fuel burn cleaner during the summer driving season.

Meanwhile, Democratic leaders have had their own response to rising gas prices. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has announced his support for the Menendez Amendment, which would "provide more than $6 billion in relief directly to the American people by eliminating the federal tax for both gas and diesel for 60 days." Senator Charles Schumer recently called for a federal investigation to determine whether oil companies are withholding gasoline production, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has blamed high gas prices on the administration's cozy relationship with the oil companies, price gouging, and royalty relief.

The editors of The Oil Drum are ideologically diverse. Over the last year, we have created a forum at www.theoildrum.com to encourage an open, rational, and fact-based discussion of energy issues. While individual editors frequently express an opinion on a subject, we have never felt it necessary to take a unified position on any specific issue. That is, until today. more...  0 Comments

If He Proposes With a Diamond, Say No

Laura McGinley | It's spring, and the annual diamond ring pageant has already begun. But
diamond mining is ravaging Africa both environmentally and socially, and
gold mining is doing the same around the world. So why do otherwise
reasonable people willingly create 30 tons of mine waste for a single ring,
fuel the armed rebellions of Africa, and enslave children to sift through
dirt looking for diamonds? And what can we do about it? more...  0 Comments
