Their backgrounds may be diverse, but their message is the same: more transparency and accountability is needed from our leaders. The 2011 Corruption Perceptions Index shows that public frustration is well founded. Corruption Perceptions Index: Transparency International
Background[edit] Greene initially formulated some of the ideas in The 48 Laws of Power while working as a writer in Hollywood and observing that today's power elite shared similar traits with powerful figures throughout history.[4] In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers.[6][9] Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and six months later, Elffers requested that Greene write a treatment.[6] Although Greene was unhappy in his current job, he was comfortable and saw the time needed to write a proper book proposal as too risky.[11] However, at the time Greene was rereading his favorite biography about Julius Caesar and took inspiration from Caesar's decision to cross the Rubicon River and fight Pompey, thus inciting the Great Roman Civil War.[11] Greene would follow Caesar's example and write the treatment, which later became The 48 Laws of Power.[11] He would note this as the turning point of his life.[11] The 48 Laws of Power The 48 Laws of Power

Patriotism: A Menace to Liberty What is patriotism? Is it love of one's birthplace, the place of childhood's recollections and hopes, dreams and aspirations? Is it the place where, in childlike naivety, we would watch the fleeting clouds, and wonder why we, too, could not run so swiftly? The place where we would count the milliard glittering stars, terror-stricken lest each one "an eye should be," piercing the very depths of our little souls? Is it the place where we would listen to the music of the birds, and long to have wings to fly, even as they, to distant lands? Patriotism: A Menace to Liberty

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law, Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Anti-government protests around the world (big photo gallery) A girl attends Friday prayers in front of an army tank in Tahrir Square. Egyptians held a nationwide "Victory March" on Friday to celebrate the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule one week ago, to protect the revolution and to remind new military rulers of the power of the street. Hundreds of thousands joined the rallies, which are also a memorial to the 365 people who died in the 18-day uprising, with many Egyptians expressing their intention to guard their newly-won prospect of democracy.

How can I not participate - we are dog lovers - two Golden Retrievers and a rescued Chocolate Lab from Save-a-Pet. We keep more than the city will allow when we rescue a dog left in the desert to die. Five is our limit but we are currently down to three having lost two wonderful dogs at 14 years old in the last 12 months. Kudo's to all our dog lovers - if they could vote we would have the progressives in power without negotiations with the "liberal" moderate right and the unreasonable Tea Party. The Tea Party and Grover Norquist will bring the right down in the next election. When they attack the working class and poor (not by choice) there is only one direction for our party to go - UP! by lqguitarist Jul 16
