The cruel stupidity that is economic austerity 

dailykos.com — When right wing politicians talk about deficits you can be certain that they're waging class warfare. When right wing politicians pursue economic austerity you can be certain that they're waging class warfare. If right wing politicians truly cared about fiscal responsibility, they would raise taxes on those who can most afford to pay more taxes and they would end corporate handouts, whether they be direct subsidies or the indirect enabling that is having the public foot the bill for environmental and other public harms incurred as part of corporate profit making. If politicians cared about bal

#NewWorldNextWeek Virginia Nullifies NDAA, Iran Oil Bourse, Illuminati Pimping - New World Next Week http://bit.ly/yCelqh

The concept of Democracy, Human Rights, Terrorism and Double Standards

We're told that the constitution is the "supreme law" of the land and that ''any other law'' found to be "inconsistent with this constitution" shall to the extent of its inconsistency be "null and void".

In the US, the constitution recognizes the powers of the judiciary, guarantees fundamental human right, the right to fair trial, the right to a lawyer/attorney, etc. Suddenly, NDAA has been passed, and this law subsequently nullifies constitutional provisions; a direct violation of Article II of the Constitution. In effect, a provision in the NDAA, has trashed the constitutional provisions mentioned (above). Is the NDAA subservient to the constitution or vice versa? Which of these two provisions; those in the constitution or the NDAA are valid? Yet the NDAA is shamelessly been enforced by the US government! 

As of today, the brutal murder of "Muammar Gaddafi" by NATO (NATO warplanes attacked the convoy at 8:30 a.m before the alleged Gaddafi was captured by the rebels), some of his children, the plot to murder Assad and his family by the rebels and many human right atrocities against the Palestinians have not even received the attention of Washington’s numerous human right NGOs, the so-called international community and the “International Court of Criminals”.
These and many horrific crimes are being carried out on a mass scale, yet the sufferings of these victims and their demand for justice have always escaped the headlines of the corporate media.

African aid: helpful or hazardous?
One study found that used-clothing imports cause a 40% decline in apparel production in Africa. According to aid critics, the unending stream of foreign money creates a situation where governments are not accountable to their citizens, forming what are essentially aid-based rentier states. 

To proponents of aid, the solution is to fight for accountability and transparency to make aid serve its purpose, not to cut it off entirely. 
April 16 marked the second annual Day Without Dignity, a day of awareness challenging existing narratives about international development and foreign aid to low-income countries. The campaign was started in response to a popular shoe company's TOMS's widely publicised "One Day Without Shoes," which took place on April 5.  
Economist Dambisa Moyo, who advocates replacing foreign aid with direct investment, estimates that over $1 trillion in development-related aid has been transferred from wealthy countries to countries in Africa.  
Critics say that foreign aid has left Africa economically weaker and dependent on donor assistance, as well as less attractive to investors. According to Moyo, real-capita income is lower than in the 1970s, and the number of people who live on less than one dollar per day has grown.
