Who Is Funding Israel's Military?... U.S. Taxpayers!

Millions of Americans face home foreclosures, health care, job and pension losses. However, none of these crises currently threatens to alter the flow of their tax dollars to Israel's government.

The Truth Behind the Israeli Attack on Gaza

Here is a simple, stone cold fact. You cannot read or hear the truth about what is happening in Gaza from any corporate media in the United States. The only thing you will find there are regurgitations of Israeli spin, which are themselves only regurgitations of the kind of spin that American militarists have put on their own depredations -- for centuries now.

Where Have All the Sunspots Gone?

 

Each sunspot is, in effect, an eruption of magnetism. The Sun is a giant dynamo, filled with thrashing waves of energy in the form of magnetic fields. Like the rubber band that powers a model plane, now and again they become wound too tight and a distorted mass of high-tension material pops out to form a visible blemish on the solar surface, or a flare that shoots into space.

America the Illiterate

We live in two Americas. One America, now the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual tools to separate illusion from truth. The other America, which constitutes the majority, exists in a non-reality-based belief system.
