"This Shorting Opportunity Is As Great As 2007-2009", Billionaire #CrispinOdey Warns -- http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-02-24/shorting-opportunity-great-2007-2009-billionaire-crispin-odey-warns

The last two times Crispin Odey, billionaire hedge fund owner and manager of Odey Asset Management spoke, he handed out extra generous portions of fire and brimstone, saying that in due course "equities will be devastated" and that the looming #recession will be "remembered for 100 years."

Black skin or white, our #healthcare system knows no divide aside from the ability to pay, and those who cannot demonstrate sufficient ability to pay are weeded out.

#ClassWar not #RaceWar
Over the past several weeks, we've seen so many examples of brutality played out in our cities -- and mostly our most impoverished areas -- that it isn't difficult to see why so many people are in the streets.  Many say white people cannot truly understand the deep racial issues that target African American people and their communities, and that is no doubt true.  But that sort of thinking also keeps groups of people apart who might otherwise ban...

True. I cannot know your pain. And you cannot know my pain. But there is only one colour: blood red.

Entitled #AnythingToSay?, the artwork comprises three life size figures standing atop three chairs in Berlin's Alexanderplatz, while a fourth chair to one side remains empty, suggesting a platform for bystanders to stand up on to address the public.

#Snowden ... #Assange ... #Manning
A statue depicting whistleblowers Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning was unveiled in Berlin on Friday, as a celebration of freedom of expression and the courage to expose truths.

"We are two students, both studying musicology at the Université Paris 8 and in the CRR 93 at Aubervilliers and the CRD at Gennevilliers [translator’s note : all located in the suburbs north of Paris]. After taking our baccalauréat exams at the end of high school, we left in September 2013 to spend a year living in Palestine. We gave and attended music classes (violin and flute) at the Edward Said National Conservatory in Ramallah and helped to create a music school in Jericho. This year we had decided to go back during our recent Easter break to see our friends again and to return to the places where we had spent time the previous year."

I can imagine how frightened they must have been!   
On April 19, two French music students were held overnight at Israel's Ben Gurion airport and humiliated, interrogated, strip-searched, and then deported all because their destination was Palestine...

“Killing me softly with your bombs”: Activists tell #LaurynHill to skip #Israel gig -- http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/killing-me-softly-your-bombs-activists-tell-lauryn-hill-skip-israel-gig

“Performing in Israel today is the equivalent of performing in Sun City, South Africa during the apartheid era,” ...

Yet even when an artist decides to cross the Palestinian picket line, it can generate negative publicity that may make others think twice.

The #RJC's mission has long been to draw Jewish voters and donors out of the Democratic Party, where they have been for decades, into the Republican Party. The epicenter of these efforts is to stake out harsh, far-right positions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and now the Iranian nuclear deal.

Billionaire Sheldon Adelson and Republicans Are Trying to Peel Off Liberal Jews -- But It's Not Working

The RJC doesn't offer any support for the wider agenda American Jews actually vote for, which tends to be politically progressive.

Actually, if they were able to strip the D's of the Wall Street "liberal" contributions, it might be the best thing that ever happened to the party.   The D. base is significantly more progressive on economic issues than the small donor base that determines the outcome of the D. primaries.

Russian police chase away anti-gay crusader from Labor Day pride march -- http://rt.com/news/255125-gay-pride-milonov-labor/

Police in St. Petersburg wouldn't allow controversial legislator #VitalyMilonov, best known for his anti-gay stance, to interfere with a gay pride march on May Day. He tried to stop the march on the grounds of a 'gay propaganda' law he himself sponsored.

An #LGBT activists' column was part of Friday's massive rally, which marched along Nevsky Prospect, the city's main street. More than 90,000 people from all ranges of the political spectrum participated, from the ruling United #Russia party to Communists and various small opposition groups.

It's not so much a reversal of policy as a false perception. The LGBT movement is at its own stage in Russia, but has been used by western backed agencies to stir up controversy. The issue has been used to portray Russia as authoritarian, but this shows the reality in the streets. Their participation in the parade did not break the law, but the anti-gay mob threatened to take the law into their own hands.
IOM, the only reason mainstream westerners buy into this type of demonization is to help them avoid looking at things back home.
Authoritarian is as authoritarian does, and if this was going down in NYPD's beat, the feds would have wire tapped the anti-gay side, befriended them, trained and funded them, then entrapped one of them into planting a bomb in the crowd.
So yeah. This is more like the true face of Russia, and not some sudden policy change.

Branding someone as a socialist has become the slur du jour by leading lights of the American right from Newt Gingrich to Rush Limbaugh. Some, like Mike Huckabee, intentionally blur the differences between #socialism and communism, between democracy and totalitarianism.

The sad thing is that the current system that the united states has is more aligned to communism than most people think. In communist countries they had elections, but only communist parties could be on the ballot. Now let's take that phrase and put it into the American reality. You have a capitalist system but only capitalist parties appear on the ballot with an ideology that pours scorn on any thing that isn't a capitalist policy. My point being that the present political system you have really is no different from the system communist Eastern Europe had after world war 2. Whilst that system was what some people would call extreme communism, not at all from the teachings of Karl Marx, the system we have is extreme capitalism. Both of these systems are morally wrong. But we can't be so hyper critical that we brandish other systems evil and morally corrupt when the system we have is exactly the same. I personally believe 90% of the people in the west have no idea of what they are voting for or what principals the parties they are voting for have in relation with there own morals or political ideology. I believe that most people only vote certain ways because their parents voted that way or their peer groups express opinions which we jump on, not fully understanding the conflicts that result with our own personell political stance.

Fighting for Internet Freedom ... among other things
Introduction

#GreenPirateAlliance -- [alternative energy, environmental protection; open internet, open government; legalized marijuana]

... our goal is to encourage #Occupy to embrace the Pirate Party

We support both PPI and WPP [World Pirate Party] strategies.

Below is the WPP manifesto (as presented by Adbusters):

We, the people of Planet Earth, hereby launch the World Pirate Party, a global horizontal people’s party for all those who are ready to stand up for and fight for our blue-green-black platform:

Blue – the color of intellect and imagination – stands for mental environmentalism and our party’s commitment to the vision of internet democracy championed by the Pirate Parties of Europe.

Green – the hue of Earth and immortality – stands for the four-decade-strong resistance movement against environmental degradation which we must win for a sane, sustainable future.

Black – the tenor of struggle and justice – stands for our party’s promise to abolish corporate personhood and institute a new global world order in which corporations bow to the will of the people.

                                                      ...  ... ...


Disclaimer: OTP (Occupy The Polls) is not an "officially" endorsed #occupy page. We have been involved with Occupy since day 1 (Sept 17, 2011), but the movement has always had a somewhat ambiguous stance on the utility of voting. Understandably. We feel, however, that in addition to occupying, citizens need to become radically politicized.
