The Shock Doctrine In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries. At the most chaotic juncture in Iraq’s civil war, a new law is unveiled that would allow Shell and BP to claim the country’s vast oil reserves…. Immediately following September 11, the Bush Administration quietly out-sources the running of the “War on Terror” to Halliburton and Blackwater…. Based on breakthrough historical research and four years of on-the-ground reporting in disaster zones, The Shock Doctrine vividly shows how disaster capitalism – the rapid-fire corporate reengineering of societies still reeling from shock – did not begin with September 11, 2001.

Top 10 Examples of NAACP Racism The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) condemned the Tea Party movement last month for alleged bigotry within its ranks. The mainstream always seems extreme to extremists. As the following top-ten list demonstrates, the NAACP, a hotbed of political hotheads in recent years, isn’t the best organization to be lecturing others about extremism. 10. In March 2008, ABC News revealed that Barack Obama’s pastor had preached that African Americans should sing “not God Bless America, God Damn America,” that 9/11 proved that “America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” and that the U.S. government invented AIDS. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. Rather than unnamed “racists” operating on the peripheries, or six-degrees-of-separation logic that lamely attempts to project X’s extremism upon Y, the above examples involve the NAACP’s official acts and duly elected leaders. Isn’t it time for the NAACP to accept responsibility for its own extremism?

EEOC Home Page Qui se cache derrière le site ? - Le blog du Parti Anti Jeudi 9 juillet 2009 4 09 /07 /Juil /2009 07:37 Le site est un site ésotérique d’où fourmillent quantité d’informations sur les grand maitres du monde appelé Illuminati et auxquels on prête les plus occultes symboles et les plus terribles desseins. Le nouvel ordre du monde y est décrit comme une conspiration d’élites subversives visant à dominer la population et instaurer la pensée unique. Bref une fois que vous lisez les articles de ce site vous vous sentez petit, impuissant, et vous attendez que cela pète… Bref vous vous croyez éveiller alors qu’en réalité vous vous « zombifiez». Car en effet le site n’est pas un site d’information. Voici la description du site : « Ce site a pour but de stimuler les neurones sur des sujets variés mais néanmoins convergents, à partir de 3 grands domaines: la science, la spiritualité, et la société, pour tenter de répondre à 3 grandes questions: d'où venons-nous, qui sommes nous, et où allons-nous... » Incroyable non !

History: Voting Rights Act Despite the fact that African Americans and other racial and ethnic minority Americans are guaranteed the right to vote by the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which was passed just after the Civil War in 1870, states and local municipalities continued to use tactics such as poll taxes, literacy tests and outright intimidation to stop people from casting free and unfettered ballots. During the Civil Rights activism of the 1960's, just 5 days after Martin Luther King, Jr. led the march on Selma, President Lyndon Johnson announced his intention to pass a federal Voting Rights Act to insure that no federal, state or local government may in any way impede people from registering to vote or voting because of their race or ethnicity. In 1965, President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law. There were 3 enforcement-related provisions of the Voting Rights Act that would have expired in August 2007 unless reauthorized.
