What I do is kinda different:

Mission Report Reveals Americans Elect plans to Dissolve and Sell off or Transfer its Assets

At the end of September 2012, reports referring to an “Americans Elect Mission Report” began to appear. Americans Elect has not made this report public on its website, and there appears to be no other place on the internet where this Mission Report is made publicly available.

However, a reference to the Mission Report appears [...]

POUGHKEEPSIE – The first round of photographs supplied by Jerome Corsi seeming to demonstrate Barack Obama’s true religion, inconclusive at best, have been supplanted by a new round of revelatory photos, conclusively demonstrating the alliance of the current “President of the United States” with a non-Christian religion.

Anti-Materialism The Mythology Of Our Time

We could admit that we devote ourselves to our jobs, and acknowledge that money matters a great deal as our culture’s symbolic representation of workers’ time and effort. We could stop denying our desire for material goods, and instead try to understand that desire, thus savoring every last bit of material worth in our purchases instead of buying obsessively and then discarding what we buy in purges of guilt.

If you’re looking to improve your social environment, come out.

I’m not just talking about revealing your sexual orientation, although clearly that applies. If you’re a member of a religious minority, let it be known. If you have an unusual political stance, share it. The results can not only free up your interpersonal relationships, but [...]

Was the Name Barack Obama Stolen from a Man born in 1890?

Social security number that Mr. Obama is using currently 042-68-4425, is a number, fraudulently obtained by Mr. Obama, as according to affidavits of Mr. Sankey, Ms. Daniels and former immigration officer, [...]

FBI Spies on YOU, Demanding Identity of Visitors to Indymedia

Hey you. Yeah, you. Chances are, the FBI has been spying on you.

I’m not just saying that. You see, people who read Irregular Times have often pointed us to stories at Indymedia to help us understand developments in the world that mainstream media just won’t cover. This means that a number of Irregular Times [...]

Why Announce Your Heterosexuality Before Supporting Homosexual Rights?

The right wing argues that same sex marriage will destroy heterosexual marriage. When heterosexual married couples point out that it’s no skin off their noses if gays and lesbians marry, it strongly undermines the right wing’s arguments. [...]

The Freedom to Be Otherkin

I find Otherkin interesting because it’s curious to consider what motivates human beings to believe that they are not human beings, and to accept a mythological identity as the internally-real core aspect of themselves. [...]

Are Congressional Recipients of Magliocchetti Largesse Acting on the Basis of Pre-Existing Policy Preference, Or…?

As federal investigators prepare to shift the focus their latest probe of military contracting corruption to Capitol Hill, it’s worth considering what investigators might be looking for. The power players are set: Paul Magliochetti, his PMA Group lobbying firm, his family of donation clones and the members of Congress who received and doled out largesse. [...]

What is a Vote For? This Undecided Ohio Voter Sits A-Wondering

Two weeks after receiving my Ohio absentee ballot in the mail, it is still sitting on my bookshelf, waiting to be filled out. At the presidential level, I am still undecided between candidates Barack Obama, Ralph Nader and Brian Moore. I’ve been reading your thoughts on the substance of the candidates’ merits, but beyond their [...]
