Thomas Paine

To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

BFP Nightly Quote
“These are the days when men of all social disciplines and all political faiths seek the comfortable and the accepted; when the man of controversy is looked upon as a disturbing influence; when originality is taken to be a mark of instability; and when, in minor modification of the original parable, the bland lead the bland.” John Kenneth Galbraith

Looking East: The Geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific with Binoy Kampmark

RPLogoThe Asia-Pacific region is universally recognized as being the key to 21st Century economic prosperity. It is for this reason that China and the United States find themselves engaged in a wide-ranging struggle for influence and control. From maritime disputes in the South China Sea to the implementation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to competition for influence in Myanmar, the world’s two largest economies continue to vie for hegemony in the region.



American Immorality Is At A Peak

Thursday, 15. November 2012 by Dr Paul Craig Roberts
“What does the world do when it confronts unbridled evil, which is what Washington is?”
immoralityWhen Chris Floyd is at his best, as he is below, he puts things in perspective for readers that they otherwise never confront. Obama has won reelection, and his supporters think that somehow things are going to be different. Fat chance.
While evil continues to envelop America, the public is focused on CIA director General Petraeus’ resignation. The FBI spied on him and found that he was having an affair with his biographer, a woman 20 years younger than his 60 years.
What is it with Americans and sex? Why is an illicit affair the ONLY reason for removing someone from political office? Why is it that government officials, presidents and vice presidents included, can violate US statutory law and torture people, spy on Americans without the necessary warrants, murder US citizens without due process, confine US citizens to dungeons for life without evidence and due process of law, start multi-trillion dollar wars on the basis of contrived allegations that have no basis in fact, murder civilians in seven countries, overthrow legitimate governments, and all of these massive crimes against humanity can be accepted as long as no one in Washington gets any sex out of it? Is this feminism’s contribution to American morality?
