“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise why Hillary Clinton’s hawkish foreign policy might be a problem when it comes to women’s rights. Unless you believe that the lives of women elsewhere don’t matter, or that the president of the USA doesn’t affect them, if Clinton wins the next election her foreign policy will affect millions around the globe. Clinton has been one of the most warmongering US politicians of recent times and is proud about her record.”
“…Within two seconds of the car’s arrival, Officer Loehmann shot Tamir in the abdomen from point-blank range, raising doubts that he could have warned the boy three times to raise his hands, as the police later claimed.”

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients. They cite animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Human studies show how genetically modified (GM) food can leave material behind inside us, possibly causing long-term problems.
After 50 days of the Gaza conflict, more than 2,100 people were killed, most of them civilians, including about 500 children.
“But we do outnumber the billionaires by about 300 million people strong.”
Does that give you any ideas?
November 2014 is an important date.

“What the Mainstream Media Can Learn From Jon Stewart:
No, not to be funny and snarky, but to be bold and to do a better job of cutting through the fog.”
Rice sanctioned the use of torture and has continued to defend it even after a top aide warned that she and her colleagues were violating the law.
“if the minimum wage had simply tracked productivity gains since 1968, it would be $21.72 an hour — three times what it is now…Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would inject about $450 billion into the economy each year.”
“Foreign companies would have “preferred status” – granting them greater rights within our borders than our own companies enjoy. U.S. companies would have more incentives to offshore jobs and foreign companies would not be bound by the minimum wage and could sue the U.S. if our health, safety, or environmental regulations interfered with their profits. Jurisdiction over such suits would rest not in the hands of elected officials or judges, but with an international business tribunal. Their decisions, which would be binding upon all member nations, would supersede our own laws – including our Constitution.”
” War crimes: namely, violations of the laws or customs of war, Such violations shall include, but not be limited to, murder, ill-treatment or deportation to slave labour or for any other purpose of civilian population of or in occupied territory, murder or ill-treatment of prisoners of war or persons on the seas, killing of hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.”

nowarsyria2Tell your legislators we do not want to attack other
nations when it is within our power to secure a victory in peace instead of a cowardly surrender to war for profit. Do not get fooled again.
History speaks but one must listen. The pretense that Assad is some bogeyman / terrorist / golem / demon / scapegoat / or another convenient excuse for surrender is bogus.
Think beyond the corporate cover story to discover facts and options for peace, life and reconstruction instead of war, death, and destruction.
Easy choice when you understand what is at stake.
