Passage to Ecuador: Chomsky, Assange, sham justice, sham democracies. (via London Progressive Journal)
Iraq has been torn to pieces by sectarianism since the US invasion and occupation, Libya is in turmoil in the aftermath of NATO intervention, Pakistan is being destabilised and a proxy war is being stoked by the US and its allies in Syria.

I’ve been a republican my entire life. During the last election I disagreed with so many of McCain’s policies, I actually voted for Obama.
It is my feeling that the Republican Party has lost its way lately. Only problem is the Democratic Party isn’t much better. To me, it’s like trying to play an online game with intense packet loss. The president can keep sending information to congress, but unless they are actually capable of seeing it and replying appropriately … we are just going end up being incapable of doing anything.
Obama has the general idea, and based on what I have witnessed in the republican primaries … I have to vote for him again. The State of the Union basically sealed that for me, because I didn’t disagree with a single statement President Obama made.
Only problem is, re-electing him won’t do any good. We need to replace every single no-good, backwards congressman. If they stand in the way of progress then give them no votes. It will take a nation to invoke change, not just one man. Ignore your political background, if your congressman is not doing the right thing vote for another candidate.
If we could get as active as we were about SOPA in replacing congress, our country just might have a chance.
What if Tim Tebow were Muslim? Something to think about. I really like the comparison with Muhammad Ali, but more importantly the concluding thought:
“But as Tebowmania makes its way into politics, sports, religion and the everyday life of the mainstream United States, it is important to think about how we approach religion in this country. How we approach religious freedom in this country. Do we accept freedom of religion, any religion? Or do we accept freedom of Christianity?”
