Nicholas Powers | On June 10, I watched police tackle a man with dreadlocks on Nostrand Avenue. He was handcuffed amid an angry crowd. I parked my car and jumped out looking for answers. My reporter’s notepad flashed in my hand, it is my shield and mirror, protecting me from commitment to a side while reflecting the consequences of those who take one. more... 0 Comments
tora | Today 26, July 2006 everything has an unreasonable hue a certain irrational shimmer. I can taste the air and it is bitter with unreason and cruelty. I am able to detect the world passing all the horror, lies and weeping. I must be dreaming or I could be mad!
NonNeocon | Senators Joe Lieberman and John McCain aren't merely "hawkish"; as "Honorary Co-Chairmen" of a pre-Iraq-war spin machine called The Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, they were leading cheerleaders for a war that now threatens to mushroom out of all control--unless we remove the Liebermans, McCains, and their fellow war cheerleaders from our U.S. Congress.
By Bill Van Auken | More than a week after Con Edison’s aging infrastructure buckled under the impact of a heat wave, plunging residents of a large swathe of New York City’s borough of Queens into darkness and sweltering heat, at least 10,000 people remained without electric power Monday.

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate from New York, called today for the creation of a national oil company to help protect American consumers against the rapidly escalating price hikes for gasoline. Hawkins said that the national oil company would take advantage of the offer by the Venezuelan government to sell oil at only $50 a barrel for the next 200 years, well below the current world price of around $70 a barrel. $50 a barrel means about $2 a gallon at the gas pump. “We must break the Big Oil’s monopoly control of our energy supplies. ExxonMobil and the other oil giants rejected the Venezuelan offer. A national oil company would serve as a New Deal style yardstick corporation whose competition would prevent Big Oil from gouging consumers. The national oil company would go into the international market and, for the first time, offer the OPEC countries a selling outlet in the US other than the multinational oil giants,” Hawkins said. more... 3 Comments

Jessie Carpenter | Protestors gathered outside Mayor Bloomberg's house on Saturday afternoon to put a stop to cabaret laws. Cabaret laws control where New Yorkers are allowed to dance. In 1929 New York City took control of where people were permitted to dance in an effort to control interracial integration. Today only 244 restaurants, clubs and bars have a cabaret license, those without a license can be fined thousands and even shut down if they permit dancing within their doors. more... 25 Comments
By PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS | Do you know that Israel is engaged in ethnic cleansing in southern Lebanon? Israel has ordered all the villagers to clear out. Israel then destroys their homes and murders the fleeing villagers. That way there is no one to come back and nothing to which to return, making it easier for Israel to grab the territory, just as Israel has been stealing Palestine from the Palestinians. more... 1 Comments
