All this fashionable talk of the "free market", but is there really a example of such? I have never seen one... not even my local farmers' market lives up to this utopian ideal. The use of the phrase seems more of a (psychologically slanted) ploy to get the masses to equate/knee-jerk capitalism with freedom/liberty. 
  "The West wants to spread democracy". Surely you don't believe the baseless rhetoric that perpetually emanates from the mouths of politicians and spread by the complicit corporate media weasels and knee-padders?  Examples please? Mali doesn't count!    The West, most especially the US government - has a far more extensive history of wrecking democracies and/or installing/supporting malleable dictators, thugs autocrats and monarchs. Here's a list of examples in recent...
Power players traditionally arms both sides, and let them fight it out between them - the usual old Macchiavellian scheming. Its about profit and control, while the puppet-masters sit back and get fat and rich.
Even the mainstream media retains some information on this. Don't believe CNN? Then try this one. Or if you dare, this. A bunch of bizarre. On the occasion of the greatest national security breach in the US history - had the attack been as claimed - the rational course of action would have been to investigate, no holds barred, with no stones left unturned, no weaseling out by quoting that old 'national security' canard, as to how in hell 19 rank amateurs pulled it off,...
    Despite the US historical record of a rapid convening of special investigations in the event of a national disaster (such as the JFK assassination and both Space Shuttle accidents), the Bush Administration opposed the creation of *any* investigation, right from the start. The initial joint Congressional Inquiry was vehemently opposed by Cheney, who leaned heavily on Senator Tom Daschle to this effect.   After 441 days of stonewalling and obfuscation by the White...
  Robert Spencer? Pamela Geller? If you really have to keep posting your racist hate-mongering sludge here, you might do yourself a little justice and quote a source with a little more credibility than Spencer et al ... The terrorist responsible was inspired by the US Islamophobe set, who in turn openly supported the worst ever terror attacks on the European soil - cold blooded massacre of 70 Norwegian kids, and detonating a huge car bomb in the capital Oslo. Perhaps you...
  Almost every liberal I know here in California started out with some (naive) impression of "hope and change"™.   (Look back to my skeptical posts here about that, in 2008!). Now, however, the majority of these same people loathe this administration as much as my conservative friends do, but for a somewhat different set of reasons. ObamaCorp has equalled, or even exceeded (if possible) the previous administration in plumbing the depths of lies, criminality, nepotism,...
      If Snowden had pursued "the correct" (!) (lol) method of "bringing concerns up the chain of command", what would have happened? As regards publicizing the fact that US agencies and their top executives have violated of the US Constitution as well as breaking numerous laws, a roaring silence - precisely nothing, squat! And Snowden himself? He would have gotten fired and then placed under a series of gag orders with the authorities pulling that old "national security"...
  Obviously "the government" monitors electronic communications - but since >99.99xxxxxx% of electronic communications is unrelated to terrorism, and the (highly unlikely) "terrorism signal is constantly overwhelmed by noise, filters are employed to catch any material that might be considered 'hot'. Then human beings look at it.   BUT - despite the fact that it is impossible, on account of manpower limitations to analyze and act on all this data in real time, this does...
  Why does the NSA require Verizon to turn over phone records when they more than likely already possess the requested material, obtained via their own blanket electronic surveillance techniques?    Furthermore, as recently admitted by FBI counterterrorism agent Tim Clemente, "bona fide" (for want of a better term), or "real" terrorist groups *never* use cellphones, landlines, satellite phones, or any other easily sourceable electronic or other mass communication means,...
