REVOLTING: Ron Paul "Cleans Up Well" in Philly, Nov. 10 2007

Mike Flugennock | Ron Paul and his followers onstage today didn't just talk from both sides of their mouths, they talked from every possible side of their mouths that they could talk from at once – like generically handsome New Jersey State Assemblyman Michael Doherty, who accidentally let slip that Paul wanted to Bring The Troops Home so they could be used to enforce immigration law at the borders (what tha...you wanna run that by me again, there, Mr. Strict Constitutionalist?) more...  3 Comments

Venezuela: another coup in the works??

Jorge Martin | On Monday, November 5th, the campaign for the constitutional reform referendum in Venezuela was stepped up with the call by retired general Baduel for a NO vote. General Baduel was a close collaborator of Chávez and remained loyal to him during the April 2002 military coup which briefly ousted him. In July of this year he resigned from his position as Defence Minister and retired from active military office. His attacks on the constitutional reform are part of a concerted campaign by the ruling class to prevent it from being approved in a referendum which will take place on December 2nd.

The amendments to the 1999 Venezuelan revolution were announced by Chávez after his election victory in December 2006 with the stated aim of bringing the Constitution into line with "Socialism of the 21st century". They were then formally proposed by Chávez in July, discussed throughout the country and passed with a whole series of modifications and additions by the National Assembly on November 2nd. more...  22 Comments

Mayor Bloomberg: We Love New York, But Hate Your Government's Rainforest Destruc

Lemurs | New York City's (NYC) Department of Parks and Recreation is
one of America's largest destroyers of rainforests, reports
New York based Rainforest Relief. Parks and other NYC and
state agencies including the Department of Transportation
(DOT) and NYC Transit use hundreds of thousands of board feet
of tropical hardwoods per year. New York City's use of ancient
forest timbers comes at great expense to the Earth's
biodiversity, ecosystems, climate and prospects for achieving
global ecological sustainability... more...  1 Comments
