websites to watch
Sometimes I just don't have enough time to talk about stuff I'd like to
. With that in mind, I can at least share some websites I've stumbled across recently that I find of interest.
Who says it's about oil? Certainly not Global Security.org
. But if you were wondering where to locate some old U.S. Army Field Manual
, some neato-keen operational weapons system
or the latest offical information of those war profiteers
currently robbing the American Treasury [as well as your wallet and mine
] blind? This is a good place to start.
The Green Files
, a semi-automated blog with aggregated news and comments. All quotations come with full attribution to their authors. Posted using Technorati, Alexa and Google sources. The site is published by Peter Grossmann, chief editor and cofounder of the acado.com ebusiness development group. The site hasn't been updated since late December, but you can still find interesting things on Avian Bird Flu hoaxes and how GreenPeace gets it right, and sometimes calls things wrong.
When that word whore Bill Reilly went on about Christ being taken out of Christmas
he may not have been off the mark all that much. He just missed the target. The real enemy is commercialism
. But I'm not surprised he missed it. That's the side from which his bread is buttered.
Prisoners don't ratchet up much sympathy but a thief is a thief
even when it's a phone company being the sole supplier of long distance services for families and jacking up the costs of phone calls to inmates exhorbitantly. Some folks would like to do something about this. The Patrick Crusade's phone company Anti-trust Project Survey
is a start on a way to address this wrong.
For more relaxing fare [well, maybe, maybe not
] Michael Reid Rubenstein's art, essays, photographs and rants
. Beautifully compsed site, easy to navigate as well.
