The government changed the "seasonal adjustment" it made to the payroll numbers--and, in so doing, boosted the number of "jobs" created in October by 100,000.
Inspired by a World War II poster exhibition, Green Patriot Posters is a design campaign that encourages building a sustainable economy. “The World War II posters were able to create a sense of heroism and strength to everyday actions,” co-founder Ed

While we have conflicting statements from experts on whether the California 'missile' was a missile, we took a look at the eyewitness' statement, KCBS aerial photographer Gil Leyvas.
If we cannot trust what the government tells us about weapons of mass destruction, terrorist events, and the reasons for its wars and bailouts, can we trust the government’s statement last Friday that the US economy gained 151,000...

Let’s put an end to this nonsense of scaring people of the end of the world by "overpopulation". It encourages madcap screwballs to commit murder, and on a larger scale, genocide because of this harebrained lunacy persistently published inRead Letter
This isn't even suppose to be funny. If I were a child I would see this as a direct threat of death for non-compliance. As an adult I see it as propaganda for a Global Carbon Tax/Control. ("There's a brilliant idea in the air",... and you better agre
