Editorial Cartoon: "Payback's A Bitch"

Mike Flugennock | So, anyway, I see last week where Congress approves another million billion zillion dollars for President Chimp's War in Iraq. No surprises there. Then, this bridge collapses in Minnesota, to much wailing and voyeurism from the press, and the predictable calls for us to send our prayers to Minneapolis -- even though no prayer requests were forthcoming for the victims of similar bridge collapses caused by US bombing of Iraqi civilians... more...  1 Comments

Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) Hype

Dr. Carol P. Araullo | The press releases churned out of the 40th Ministerial Meeting of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the annual ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) this week gives the impression ASEAN is well on the way to becoming a formidable economic bloc and a force to reckon with in the geopolitical landscape. This self-congratulatory stance was exemplified by the braggadocio in the keynote speech of de facto Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, that the lofty vision of an “ASEAN community” is achievable by the year 2015, and not the official target of 2020. more...  0 Comments

The Idol Market or Ten Dogmas of Neoliberalism

It is convinced all interventionism is of the devil and that the good can only occur in the form of the market and never in the form of social justice. more...  0 Comments

More Demonstrations at Massey Investors' Office On Wall Street

sw | After a brief weekend respite, a group of activists once again took to the streets of New York City to protest against investors in Massey Energy Company and its practice of mountaintop removal coal mining in southern Appalachia. Visits were made to Citibank, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs office branches, where protestors filled the lobbies with chants such as "King coal? Off with his head!", displayed a banner demanding an end to mountaintop removal mining, and distributed literature on the practice and the companies' involvement with Massey to bank customers, employees, and passersby.
