One year after the US-led coup in Ukraine;
Capitalism is the peaceful phase of Fascism, at least that is, peaceful for the good folks higher up on the pyramid. But as Capitalism is a pyramid scheme,  the Fascist phase is appearing closer and closer to home as the losers resist their fate.  Kiev is not that far from Athens, for example, or Moscow.
It might make you hate. But we do not want hate. We want a reasoned understanding of the criminality of fascism and how it should be opposed. We must realize that these murders are the gestures of a bully, the great bully of fascism. There is only one way to quell a bully, and that is to thrash…

The most important FCC vote of our lifetime is about to happen, but Congress is trying to kill net neutrality. Help us change history.

Here is another honest bid for sanity in Europe. While Lavrov consistently, calmly lays out the facts, the US lets bombast and bombs to do its talking. TL;DR; the crisis comes down to 25 years of US policy of steady encroachment on Russian borders, dismantling and gaming international treaties with the ultimate goal being subjugation of Russia. Kerry's rhetoric implies that subjugation is inevitable, a forgone conclusion and Russia is guilty of creating instability by resisting!

An AFP article deliberately slanders NAF leader:

Ukraine run by 'miserable' Jews: rebel chief

IF you keep reading you find this is what the rebel leader actually said:

''Alexander Zakharchenko, leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, claimed that Kiev's pro-Western leaders were ''miserable representatives of the great Jewish people''

please enjoy this cheeky yet provocative commentary with actual french malageographisms: http://youtu.be/hfLf6tO7vSA
 
I'm sharing this not because this is news. It isn't really. The bit about this that really struck me is that the clips from the French television show in these purported "No-Go Zones" are urban areas nicer than any urban zone in my very, very, nice, small city. 

Really, Chico California regularly wins awards as being one of the nicest small cities in the U.S.. It is really, really, sweet here. The supposed muslim no-go zones in/around Paris appear to be better than my own downtown. 

Oh, then there's all the Fox News crazies repeating a known lie again, and again, and again. Absolute, deliberate, reality denial.

An fascinating tale of logic and hubris. 
 
"When vos Savant politely responded to a reader’s inquiry on the Monty Hall Problem, a then-relatively-unknown probability puzzle, she never could’ve imagined what would unfold: though her answer was correct, she received over 10,000 letters, many from noted scholars and Ph.Ds, informing her that she was a hare-brained idiot.

"What ensued for vos Savant was a nightmarish journey, rife with name-calling, gender-based assumptions, and academic persecution."

In 1990, Marilyn vos Savant correctly answered a probability puzzle in her column for Parade Magazine. And then, the world called her an idiot.

Fascism.
 
Yet another illustration of how broken the US judicial system is...

It would still be broken if money weren't a factor, but it would be substantially less broken. The fact that a proper legal defense is only available to the deep-pocketed is, to my mind, a clear violation of the Constitutional requirement of "equal protection under the law" as given in the 14th amendment. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_Protection_Clause

...and if this isn't a violation of that clause as it is generally interpreted, then we need to amend it further to clarify that point. Justice must work for everyone if it's going to work at all, else it's just a taxpayer-funded service for the wealthy.

It really ought to apply at the federal level, too -- not just to the states.

Also... "broken justice" is inadequate to describe the actions of the judge, prosecution, and DOJ in this case. This is the Powers-That-Be demonstrating their utter contempt for due process, and Putting Us In Our Place. It's little short of a declaration of war -- or else provocation intended to goad us into declaring it first.
