Revolutionary thought of the day: Hunger isn't about the amount of food around. It's about being able to afford and control that food. After all, the U.S. has more food than it knows what to do with, and still 50 million people are food insecure. Raj Patel, author of *Stuffed and Starved* and *The Value of Nothing*, quoted by Naomi Klein in *This Changes Everything*

negative reviews and threats of lawsuits: let's not give in to corporate bullying

laura k at wmtc - 17 minutes ago
There's a new bully in town, and he's not going after fat kids in the school cafeteria. He's a corporate bully, and he's gunning for *you*, his dissatisfied customer. An increasing number of companies are threatening lawsuits against customers who post negative online reviews about their products or services. At least one company has actually sued a former customer for defamation, based on negative reviews - and won. This is a chilling development for anyone who cares about free speech, a free internet, and consumer advocacy. But it may not be as dire as it sounds. *A slightly mo... more »

The Islamic State Continues To Attract Thousands Of Jihadists

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 29 minutes ago
*Airstrikes Against Islamic State Do Not Seen To Have Affected Flow Of Fighters To Syria -- Washington Post* More than 1,000 foreign fighters are streaming into Syria each month, a rate that has so far been unchanged by airstrikes against the Islamic State and efforts by other countries to stem the flow of departures, according to U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials. The magnitude of the ongoing migration suggests that the U.S.-led air campaign has neither deterred significant numbers of militants from traveling to the region nor triggered such outrage that even more ... more »

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 2 hours ago
*The best marketing strategy that ISIL has at its disposal is having the U.S. and the West pose as their enemies on the battlefield. The stupid "Mujahideen" hear about the U.S. airstrikes on their 1970's walkie-talkies and flock to the group that is fighting the "infidels." In reality, we know the U.S. is doing very little damage to ISIL's positions and military hardware in Syria and Iraq, and is secretly giving an endless amount of arms and money to the terrorist group via third parties such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.* Read the article *"ISIS Stunner: Terrorist Organizati... more »

Saudi Scholar Sami Habib: Israel Is Responsible for 9/11

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 5 hours ago
At least some of the scholars in Saudi Arabia are waking up and challenging the official 9/11 narrative. This is good to see. It shows that they are not completely brainless. Hope it is a sign of things to come. It is about time that some of the brighter minds in Saudi Arabia are beginning to reexamine 9/11 and Israel's participation in that crime. Of course, it is a mistake to view Israel as responsible for all of the crises, injustices, and problems of the Muslim world, that's absurd, but there is no question that it played a big role in the 9/11 attacks that led to the criminal i... more »

*“Keeping Our Minds Supple: Questioning Everything”* by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM “Being open-minded means that we are willing to question everything, including those things we take for granted. A lot of people feel threatened if they feel they are being asked to question their cherished beliefs or their perception of reality. Yet questioning is what keeps our minds supple and strong. Simply settling on one way of seeing things and refusing to be open to other possibilities makes the mind rigid and generally creates a restrictive and uncomfortable atmosphere.

This election cycle should serve as a case study in how not to run the DCCC. We've been referring to it as The Steve Israel Effect but, even if Israel is the worst practitioner ever, the DCCC's inability to do its job predated Israel for as long as anyone alive can remember. This goes beyond spending $4,000,000 in a blue-leaning New York City district for a recruit so unattractive that he could lose in a landslide to a Mafia thug with 20 criminal indictments. The story, or a version of it, can be told in any district in the country that Steve Israel stuck his nose into. As an exam... more »

Bibi crashes 9/11 plane into grassy knoll

Israeli PM Benyamin “Bibi” Netanyahu is suddenly embroiled in controversy – over the two biggest unsolved murder cases in American history. First, a cartoon in Haaretz, Israel’s liberal flagship newspaper, depicts Netanyahu as a kamikaze pilot flying a jetliner into the World Trade Center. Then Netanyahu, angered at being called a “chickenshit,” snarls out a threat to Obama referencing the famous Grassy Knoll from whence JFK’s brains were blown out. What's up with that?

Owen Gray at Northern Reflections - 14 hours ago
morningstaronline.co.uk Stephen Harper revealed his income splitting plan last week. It's classical Conservative policy. Comfort the rich, they say, and everyone else will benefit.
