"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.
They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

The MSM, where the truth comes to die
Have you tired yet of the bullshit spin in the US MSM regarding Israel's ongoing war crimes in Gaza? I thought so. So without further ado let's get a peek at the straight dope from (as usual) Chris Floyd. Bare in mind that much of what you read in Floyd's piece is available from mainstream sources within Israel itself such as the leading daily Ha'aretz but not in the US. Another critical source of analysis on the wholly US-sponsored atrocity is from the Angry Arab.
