Dec 21, 2014: Good friends,

Happy Solstice! Here's hoping this turn of the seasons finds you flourishing, wherever you are. If you've been on this list for a while, you know it can sometimes be a while between updates. This just-broken silence, though, has been over six months in length...

WELL WORTH WATCHING:


The War on Democracy
by John Pilger

Why We Fight
by Eugene Jarecki


  "Recent polls have shown growing public dissatisfaction with the president's handling of the war in Iraq in the face of a persistent insurgency and the mounting U.S. death toll."-AP, my emphasis added
They forgot to mention the price at the pump, which seems to be people's #1 concern... Civilians in iraq evidently don't matter to US military planners, or to the mass media... what will it take for their lives to matter to the US public?
