Obama, Malala and the Militants America Put into Power

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 24 minutes ago
*October 15, 2014 *(Ulson Gunnar - NEO) - It would seem only natural that the presumed arbiters of the world would see their greetings and congratulations as the natural pinnacle of success for any they deem a global hero. And such is the case of now Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai who has been given an audience with US President Barack Obama (also a Nobel Peace Prize recipient) to be congratulated on for having "inspired people around the world with her determined efforts for girls' right to education." Malala Yousafzai was thrust into headlines when she was attacked... more »

Education Post’s Selective Concern with “Belittling”

How Close Is 1984 Today?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
When I think back to high school and recall the books I read that have had the most impact on my thinking since then, certainly the dystopian novels *1984* (1949) by George Orwell and *Brave New World* (1932) by Aldous Huxley ranked high among them. Our world must never turn into the world’s created by Huxley and Orwell. This afternoon we looked at a reason to cast a vote to reelect Colorado Senator Mark Udall based on his role in preventing *1984* encroachment by the CIA and the rest of the U.S. Military-Industrial-Intellegence Complex on our society and our democracy.

*"What Is Hope?"* by Ruben Alves "What is hope? It is the pre-sentiment that imagination is more real and reality is less real than it looks. It is the hunch that the overwhelming brutality of facts that oppress and repress us is not the last word. It is the suspicion that reality is more complex than the realists want us to believe. That the frontiers of the possible are not determined by the limits of the actual; and in a miraculous and unexplained way, life is opening creative events which will light the way to freedom and resurrection.

The War Resisters Support Campaign is facing an unprecedented crisis. Since war resister Kimberly Rivera was forced out of the country in September 2012, there had been no movement on any war resister’s case. Then, within one month, five war resisters received notices that decisions have been made in their cases. Two of these have been given removal dates ( *i.e.* they have been told to leave the country by a certain date). We expect similar negative outcomes in the other cases – and we don’t know who else will receive a notice tomorrow or next week. The Campaign has shifted into hig... more »

Ann Kuster May Have An Ugly Voting Record But New Hampshire Republican’s Vicious Comments On Her Appearance Is Part Of Their Cruel War Against Women

Blue America helped raise money and awareness for Annie Kuster when she ran last cycle.
