Bravo!

This comes from the comments in the Coffee Table. Everyone needs to read this. Anon, my finest applause.

the paper had a hit piece by corporate whore Roger Hernandez attacking Evo Morales of Bolivia as against free choice,multiple party politics and ending elections. You want to go ahead and make that a reality just keep supporting the administration and others who try to hammer down Any attempt to stand up against global corporatism. Morales already said he wants to work with the U.S. but not be dominated by them. Of course, Hernandez said that all the right thinking people in the world realize we need a "global system run by the United States". Such hypocrits and whores don't care about what is true or right just who is doing it and to whom. The only thing I would disagree with Morales on so far is that he said if the U.S. does not cooperate then he may seek help from China. That is worrisome on several points. The Daily Record of course pitched in its part on the propaganda with the headline they used for the hit piece. Hernandez also lauded how wonderful the supposedly left of center Bachelet who was recently elected in Chile was. Well, she certainly won on a left of center platform with a left of center party, but so far she has voiced nothing about correcting the "free market" corporate running of the country that has led to the widest discrepancy of income of any South American country, a regressive tax system and a failed privitized social security system. And she was even abused during the Pinochet regime. Remember Pinochet? When Chile's experiment with democracy back in the 70s elected Allende, the U.S. government/corporate system complex had him not so covertly overthrown. Pinochet then came to power with his reign of terror and even after he left the nation has continued as a neoliberal/neocon economics lab, not to the benefit of the average working Chilean of course. But the American public largely has remained uneducated and miseducated about the reality of the situations in Chile and Bolivia among other places thanks in large part to our sensationalist and mind dulling "liberal" media. Of course some people don't really care. As long as the people of the world allow themselves to be led by assorted criminals and con artists there won't even be a chance for peace or justice. Some true progress could be made in Bolivia and Morales could be held accountable but only if the dealings with them are respectful and intelligent and not subservant to the whores of greed and war or by people blindly waving flags and reciting nationalist propaganda and corporate adthink. Remember, the people of Bolivia can turn to and be controled by the same mindset when pushed enough. Think Hamas and Al Queda.

The name is spelled al-Qaeda.

From Wikipedia:
"The first formal use of the name "al-Qaeda" for the grouping when the American government decided to prosecute Bin Laden in his absence using anti-Mafia laws that required the existence of a named criminal organisation".

It should be called al-CIAduh, since it is the CIA's baby.
