Green leader resigns as party joins Ahern coalition

So the Greens have their hands on the levers of power in Ireland now. The Public wasn't quite willing to give it all over to them, but they are holding the balance of power in parliament. Right then, now it's Elizabeth May's turn....

Enjoy Being Canadian While You Can

The Tyee reports on a behind-the-curtains plan to integrate Canada into the US politcal and financial framework. What's scary is how much as already been done without us even knowing about it. Be worried.
"If the machinations going on in this country regarding so-called "deep integration" were instead a communist conspiracy to take over the country (you will, of course, have to try hard to imagine this) the news media would be blaring the story.
Pundits would pontificate, editorialists would erupt, security forces would be unleashed.
Instead, a virtual conspiracy to make the country disappear through assimilation into the U.S. gets barely a mention.
But news of the scheme -- formally called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) -- is finally breaking out of the secret chambers of the ruling elite and the federal government. This is both good news and bad. It's good that ordinary citizens are finally getting a glimpse of the betrayal of their country. The news is bad because it reflects just how much of this scheme is already being implemented.
Given the meetings of CEOs and politicians to advance the scheme politically, as well as all that must go into its actual implementation, there is simply too much activity to keep secret."

This is what a free market looks like (NOT!)

From Alternet:

Wal-mart Subsidy Watch
is new website that came online today to track the millions in
corporate welfare that the notorious chain store sucks up each year --
subsidies that help the store that's done so much to downgrade what it
means to be an American worker continue to reap healthy profits while
keeping its everyday low prices low.

What's Wrong With Amerika?

This is what's wrong with Amerika. Pretty much everything that's gone wrong is summed up in this post on Alternet.
The death of memory, a compliant, owned, and actively lying media, and the seeming evil in the soul of a country.
