Loving Egypt’s Military Dictatorship

tantawiby Jacob G. Hornberger

The disingenuousness of the U.S. government clearly has no bounds. What better example than its recent, somewhat lackadaisical call on the Egyptian military to relinquish power to the civilian sector?

After all, guess who’s been propping up and supporting Egypt’s military dictatorship for decades. Yes, the democracy-loving U.S. government. Billions and billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer money have been sent to Egypt’s military dictators, year after year, decade after decade.

A Voters’ Rights Amendment to Unify Occupiers and Tea Partiers

hydraUnification of the Tea Party and Occupy movements for a common goal – a Voters’ Rights Amendment – will reestablish the United States as a democratic republic and will restore control of its government to the voters.

Although the corporate and wealthy elite is doing everything in its power, primarily through its mouthpiece – the mainstream media, to convince Occupiers and Tea Partiers that each is an enemy of the other, it is becoming increasingly clear that the two groups have much in common.
