June 26, 2013, 12:42 amThe Tea Party's Legacy of Racism
"The American Right demeans racial minorities for playing the victim’s role, but today’s Tea Party is draped in 'victimhood,' claiming to be the target of an African-American president and feeling threatened by the nation’s demographic shift. But racist fears have always had a home on the Right, says Robert Parry."

"For as long as humans have been growing food, farmers have saved seeds from their harvest to sow the following year. But Monsanto and other big seed companies have changed the rules of the game. They have successfully argued that they spend millions of dollars developing new crop varieties and that these products should be treated as proprietary inventions with full patent protection. Just as one can't legally reproduce a CD or DVD, farmers are now prohibited from copying the GM seeds that they purchase from companies like Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and Syngenta."

"Although the percentage is small, several demographers said they are not aware of another time in U.S. history — not even during the Depression or wars — when there was such shrinkage among the dominant racial group. No other group showed a similar falloff."

June 5, 2013, 11:42 amMoral Imperative of Bradley Manning
"Official Washington still glorifies George W. Bush’s 'successful surge' in Iraq while ignoring the wanton slaughter inflicted on Iraqis. So, there remains a high-level desire to harshly punish Pvt. Bradley Manning for exposing the horrific truth about that and other war crimes, writes ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern."
Due to the current work of the author, Ray McGovern, a former 27 year CIA analyst, biblical scholars will find this article of particular interest.
"Ray McGovern works with Tell the Word, a publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in inner-city Washington. He teaches a course called 'Biblical Justice: Is It an Un-American Activity?' at the Servant Leadership School. Earlier, he was an intelligence analyst for almost 30 years."

"The Right’s hostility to 'guv-mint' is not new. It traces back to the South’s fears that any activism by the national government, whether building roads or providing disaster relief, would risk federal intervention against slavery and later against segregation, perhaps even the end of white supremacy, reports Robert Parry."

Sustainable Energy prospects are looking up.
I look forward to the day when Exxon and Chevron (etc) can pack up and leave the Middle East.
I hope they don't try to extend their lease by undermining their competition, rather than joining it.

March 20, 2013, 1:11 amIraq: War's Legacy of Cancer
"Official Iraqi government statistics show that, prior to the outbreak of the First Gulf War in 1991, the rate of cancer cases in Iraq was 40 out of 100,000 people. By 1995, it had increased to 800 out of 100,000 people, and, by 2005, it had doubled to at least 1,600 out of 100,000 people. Current estimates show the increasing trend continuing."
