Corporations Can’t Vote

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to spend unlimited funds in our elections. The First Amendment was never intended to protect corporations.

This cannot stand. Join our campaign to protest this decision. Protect our democracy! Free speech is for people — not corporations.

Help Haiti

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

I donated to Doctors Without Borders, because they have had people on the ground for a long time before the 7.0 earthquake demolished Port au Prince, and they even lost three of their facilities. What’s more, medical supplies and staff are the most urgent to prevent the spread of disease in the refugee camps at this critical time. If you have not already, please count your blessings right now and click through to support Doctors Without Borders.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

In keeping with Ben Bernake being named TIME’s Person of the Year of 2009 for his service as the Emperor Palpatine of our economy, Darth Vader literally rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, authenticating the evil in capitalism and proving that clueless pundits who cite “market forces” are actually referring to The Force.

Sarah Palin’s Droogs

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

After their viral hit interviewing Tea Party protesters while politely revealing how little they understood the causes they claimed to support, New Left Media returns with this revealing piece speaking to Sarah Palin supporters at the book signing for Going Rogue. Here the same earnest interviewer tactfully elicits jaw-dropping failures of logic or knowledge. Good thing these people are buying books, they have some reading to do.

Oil of L.A.

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

I cannot believe I live and drive by each of these oil wells EVERY DAY.

L.A. sits on top of the third largest oil field in the US, and oil wells are scattered covertly throughout the city – around schools, stores and homes. You would never guess this because the oil rigs are built to resemble other buildings around LA, as this creepy video reveals. When the air quality of LA is pinned to the traffic, the fact that we live on an oil field with rampant drilling should also be considered.

Sarah Palin’s Loving Supporters

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Really?

Sarah Palin only signs books for a half hour and people start an ad-hoc protest? It is almost as if she has attracted the kind of people who take everything as a personal offense and thrive in being outraged and make self-righteous demands under a populist pretense.
