The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Citizens for Peace in Space protesting outside Schriever Air Force Base (Star Wars base) in Colorado Springs during Keep Space for Peace Week.  The base logo reads "Master of Space."

  • The controversy over Republican V-P candidate Rep. Paul Ryan's phony pot and pan washing at a Ohio soup kitchen over the weekend has got me going.  He arrived with his family after the meal was over and all dishes were washed.  Ryan, wife, and kids put on white kitchen aprons and he commenced to re-wash a couple steel serving pans.  They mentioned the story on mainstream news last night but let him off the hook when the reporter claimed that Ryan "washed some dirty dishes".  This is how they do it at corporate media central.
  • Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and her vice presidential running mate Cheri Honkala were arrested Tuesday outside the venue at Hofstra University where Obama and Mitt Romney met for their nationally televised mud wrestling match.  I read this morning that both women were handcuffed to a metal chair in a remote police warehouse on Long Island for eight hours.  Real threats to corporate capital.  Stein-Honkala will be on 85% of state ballots in the upcoming election. 
  •  The Pentagon is now preparing to deploy F-16 fighter bombers in Poland.  The Russians are asking why?  F-16's are able to carry nuclear bombs, which are currently stored at nine American depots in five countries, including Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Turkey. 
  • One out of eight persons in prison on the entire planet Earth is African-American.
