Why The Pope Is a Dope

A.K. Gupta | While the corporate media continue to deny that the Pope attacked Islam in his speech two months, even a cursory reading shows that he was launching an unambiguous attack on Islam. He may be trying to make nice in Turkey now, but his speech was aimed at showing that Islam was a rejection of Christianity. Additionally, few have noticed that Benedict was arguing for the superiority of Europe as God's chosen domain. more...  7 Comments

The Closure of Clamor Magazine

Joshua Breitbart |

If you are a subscriber to Clamor Magazine, you will receive a letter this week announcing that it is going out of business. The letter says, in part:

"We’re writing to you today because we’ve decided to stop publishing Clamor. We set out to create an independent magazine that would bulldoze borders, defy dogma, and inspire instigation. We wanted to create a magazine that extended the vibrancy of the underground zine community to a larger general audience and share the enthusiasm and energy we saw in our fellow do-it-yourselfers. We intended to redefine the progressive magazine. And while we feel like we accomplished those goals at various stages, one goal we never fully realized is that of making Clamor economically sustainable.

"… The obstacle of servicing old debt on an otherwise sustainable project while also negotiating major shifts in the magazine industry have proven too burdensome for us to continue publishing. But effective movement media doesn’t need to last indefinitely to be successful. We’re confident that many people have been inspired to do great things after reading about others doing the same in Clamor. We know this because we’ve been consistently inspired by the stories of struggle and triumph in Clamor. And while we’ll miss that, we’re also confident that there are independent media projects being born at this very moment with even greater promise."

Kramer Is A N Word Lover

BlackState.com | On the heals of the tape illustrating the guy who played Kramer on Seinfeld use of the N word against an African American who was heckling during his performance herein lies what we deem is the appropriate use of this heinous "word".

People of European Descent

For people of European descent in America or anywhere else in the world, the N word should never be said. It should never be said publicly or privately. As the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed not all speech is free speech, some speech when used enters into the realm of unprotected speech, such as yelling fire in a crowded theatre the N word is such a word. more...  6 Comments

Economic Values and Impending Collapse

finch | Foreboding has hit the ranks of private equity firms; try as they might to unload vast amounts of funds (monetary value is inextricably linked to the movement of those funds) they have been unable to spend/invest at a rate that would sustain value let alone increase real profits! The ‘healthy figures’ reflecting increased acquisitions/investments are on paper only – it ‘looks good’ at the moment! more...  0 Comments
