Next April, for a grand total of 8 minutes, NASA astronomers are going to glimpse a secret layer of the sun. Researchers call it "the transition region."

This article will prove how the American worker and employer alike have been hoodwinked regarding the withholding process. The purpose behind this chicanery is not to benefit America, but to further enrich the coffers of the private banking cartel aka the Federal Reserve. ~ Devvy Kidd 2003 (Great article. It applies even more so today. - S.I.A.)
Shanghai is China's richest city, with a reputation for producing top-notch wheeler-dealers. It is an intimidating urban sprawl, home to 18m people (at least that's the official figure), bursting with effort and energy. China may be run by the Communist Party, but Shanghai's neon-lit skyline is dominated by symbols of capitalist might: Hilton and Hyatt, Citibank and Coca-Cola. - Photo Shanghai's Nanjing Road
Be a bit of a pain if it did, wouldn’t it? And the most frustrating thing is that we won’t know for sure either way until the European laboratory for particle physics (Cern) in Geneva switches on its Large Hadron Collider the day after tomorrow (September 10).

A leading investor has denounced the government seizure of two of the nation’s largest financial companies as “madness” and says the move will only serve to make the markets more volatile and see house prices continue to go down. In an interview with CNBC Jim Rogers, CEO of Rogers Holdings, described the move by the Treasury to nationalize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as “insanity”.
Although Sarah Palin Smoked marijuana 'back in the day' why would this make her a criminal? Marijuana is legal in Alaska, Palin says it shouldn't be. If smoking marijuana makes her a criminal, the White House should have been hoed out a loooong time ago. What about Obama's 'little' coke and marijuana problem? This didn't seem to prevent him from running for president. This whole country is run by criminals... ~ SadInAmerica
Last week, thousands of people descended upon Minneapolis-the other Twin City-for Ron Paul's Rally for the Republic, a colorful affair heavy on Revolutionary War symbolism. The gathering meant to serve as a message of revolt to the Republican Party from some of its most disaffected constituents.

If incorporating personal details into an RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip implanted into a passport or driver's license may sound like a "smart" alternative to endless lines at the airport and intrusive questioning by securocrats, think again. Since the late 1990s, corporate grifters have touted the "benefits" of the devilish transmitters as a "convenient" and "cheap" way to tag individual commodities, one that would "revolutionize" inventory management and theft prevention.
With the help of U.S. defense contractors, China is building the prototype for a high-tech police state. It is ready for export. Thirty years ago, the city of Shenzhen didn't exist. Back in those days, it was a string of small fishing villages and collectively run rice paddies, a place of rutted dirt roads and traditional temples. ~ Naomi Klein
"I was very protective as governor of my prerogatives in the federal system. One thing I never liked from the federal government were unfunded mandates, or the federal government telling me how to run Pennsylvania." - Tom Ridge
Ten humans decide they want to start their own community, but they have no common “money” to build their economy on. A banker agrees to help them out. He loans each person $10 (money that he simply “prints up” in his basement) and agrees to accept “interest only” payments on the loans at a rate of 10%. (A tiny $1.00 payment per person, per year.) So, the community begins with a total money supply of $100. Prices in the community are set according to this money supply and everything seems fine.
The history of forcing fluoride on humans through the fluoridation of drinking water is wrought with lies, greed and deception. Governments that add fluoride to drinking water supplies insist that it is safe, beneficial and necessary, however, scientific evidence shows that fluoride is not safe to ingest and areas that fluoridate their drinking water supplies have higher rates of cavities, cancer, dental fluorosis, osteoporosis and other health problems.
The gall of this man and other members of the Bush administration seem to have no limits. Is it really possible that anyone can take his remarks seriously when he accuses Russia of "bullying others"? Are we supposed to believe that the illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq are nothing more than a friendly helping hand? Is the pressure and sanctions being applied to Iran not "bullying"? And what about the recent trips into Pakistan´s sovereign territory to kill more civilians, what are we supposed to call that?
Declaring that clergy have a constitutional right to endorse political candidates from their pulpits, the socially conservative Alliance Defense Fund is recruiting several dozen pastors to do just that on Sept. 28, in defiance of Internal Revenue Service rules.
