The saying "In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act" comes to mind; Orwell would be outraged.

Tar sands also create toxic lakes so large you can see them from space.

I need to get rid of my car. I hate having a car but I have no other way of getting to work. Public transportation is absolute shit in my city. I'm planning on moving closer to my work next summer so I can ride a bicycle.

Wars for oil and destroying the climate for oil. I need to be the change.

Have you thought of forming a car or van pool for getting to or from work?

More and more REAL scientists are joining forces against this pipe line and the tar sands in general every day.

Woods Hole is now fully on board.

"Why are scientists in alarm mode over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, a 1,700-mile long conduit that would transport a chemical-laden synthetic oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada, to refineries in Texas? Scientists across specialized fields have joined forces to make public statements, penned a formal letter to President Obama, and have even committed acts of civil disobedience in front of the White House during the national Tar Sands Action .

What do they know that we don’t? "

According to Romney apparently Canada's and Mexico's resources are "ours".

YEs, but my point is the mentality of this assumption- it's breathaking and no one is saying anything about it! "North America's" Energy resources are "ours!" Would the same also go for water? Canadians especially should think about that.

You've said a lot and I appreciate your posts, even those i don't agree with. This one you are dead on right on the mark. I hope people all over the world get a good look at the Yankee mind set. For their own good.

A matter of opinion. Here's what I know:

There has been no, none, nothing, or any serious opposition that the PTB would have to take seriously among the populace against the drone strikes. If people in places like Venezuela, Iran, Pakistan, Russia believe that the American people would rise up and stop any attack on them they would be very mistaken and that's what I am saying.

Thats awesome. Love it.

Here's one that you will appreciate. A group of protesters crash a banker ball and give a fake award to Barclays for Best LIBOR Manipulation.

hahaha thanks for that one.

That was great. The use of humor is very effective. Even the attendees were chuckling. That was a far better way to make the point than a "mic check" IMO.
