Let's shout about the price of oil

10-06-2008 12:35

Should we be complaining about increases in fuel prices or welcoming them as a help in addressing climate change and peak oil? This article suggests we should be shouting, not just for cuts in prices, but for responsible management of the world's resources. It is in our own self interest to do so.

Elected senator and member of Berlusconi's party 'people of freedom'
In the media I read that Berlusconi's company mediaset has taken over the dutch media concern of Endemol. Do we have to worry in Europe?
The victory of Berlusconi has nothing to do with the 'exotic' nature of Italians, or with political left or right but everything with mediaconcentrations that can fall in the wrong hands.
Who or what controls the European media?

Fujitsu Strike Birmingham: You can have your Logo but hands off our jobs!

10-06-2008 12:16

Where's that Fujitsu plant in Birmingham?
Fujitsu workers from the Communication Workers Union (C.W.U.) went on strike yesterday and picketed the Birmingham telecommunications plant in the blazing sun to protest against losing their jobs. 140 jobs are destined to go if Fujitsu decides to end production in Birmingham and take their work to Texas in the United States. If it hadn't been for the picket outside we wouldn't have found the site at Birmingham Business Park as management had taken the company’s logo down at the entrance of the plant just before the strike claiming it needed cleaning, whilst workers were convinced that the corporation wanted to keep any bad publicity to an absolute minimum.

Treaty Tensions Mount as Iraq Tells the US It Wants All Troops Back in Barracks

10-06-2008 00:56

Can you blame the Iraqi people for not wanting the occupation troops to stay?

If this "agreement" gets passed before the end of this year (and the end of the election season, so Bush can trumpet Iraq as a "success" worth all the cost in blood and money), look for the Iraqi people to revolt completely against the Al-Maliki government (and US troops) in any way they can think of.

Creating a Forward Operating Base for US forces to prosecute the rest of its planned Regional Wars was, of course, one of the main reasons for the US to attack both Afghanistan and Iraq. This 'agreement' appears designed to create the appearance that this is some new development, as the Neo-Cons can no longer hide the construction of permanent bases its Opposition has been pointing to since late 2003.

Neoconofascism Manipulate U.S. Via Mainstream Media:

09-06-2008 21:52

But why is Ivy Leaguer and east coast elitist William Kristol, who never served in the United States military himself, whining about what Obama says in respect to the U.S. military? Apparently we must weigh in the fact that William Kristol, and his father, are ardent neo-conservatives whose ideological founder was Leo Strauss. More importantly we need note that Leo Strauss was a “fascist” political philosopher who taught at the University of Chicago.
