TED Talk: Learning from a Barefoot Movement

Video

Sanjit Roy founded the Barefoot college in Tilonia, Rajasthan, a non-government organisation that has been providing basic services and solutions to problems in rural communities, with the objective of making them self-sufficient and sustainable. These ‘Barefoot solutions’ can be broadly categorised into solar energy, water, education, health care, rural handicrafts, people’s action, communication, women’s empowerment and wasteland development.

Drugs to Facilitate US Economy and the Fight for Oil

Video

This film, titled “The Truth and Lies of 9/11” by Michael Ruppert, an author, investigative journalist and former LAPD officer investigates the real reasons behind the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Ruppert does not base his analysis on any sort of speculation about the 9/11 attacks, but on substantive evidence. A good book to read by Ruppert covering this subject is “Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil”.

Mitt Romney vs. Gay Veteran

Video

“You can’t trust him. I just saw it in his eyes.”

I love this clip for numerous reasons. I love that Romney went to the veteran, Bob, thinking he’s probably going to love Romney for all his conservative crap and give him positive publicity. I love how Romney almost seems excited about the gay marriage question, since he assumes the old, white male Vietnam veteran is going to be on his side. I love how much more fake Romney got when he realizes the guy he is speaking to is gay. I love how Romney cannot get Bob to stop speaking his mind with his vague “we apparently disagree on that” bullshit. I love how stressed out Romney’s minions get when they see the direction the conversation is going in and try to wrap it up in a hurry. I love how Bob calls him out by saying “I guess the question was too hot”. I love how Bob made sure he spoke his mind at the end before Romney ran away. I love how Romney looks like he was slapped in the face.

Newt Gingrich: Latest Moronic Ideas

Video

“You are in a school that is failing, with a teacher that is failing”.

A person with common sense would reason that the education system needs to be improved.

Not Newt Gingrich. He suggests that local kids should be made to clean the schools to “make them rise up”!

Troops in Texas… and they’re CHINESE!

Fellow blogger’s blog: Troops in Texas… and they’re CHINESE!

American fascism in the name of democracy is not very different from terrorism in the name of religion.

1) The United States (like all so called “Democracies”) has a sham of a Democracy

2) Most of America’s best allies are fascist governments

3) Why are they only spreading democracy in the Middle East? Why not spread the joy to the rest of the world if that is their first and foremost intention?

4) If terrorism is such a concern, why does the United States have a long history of funding terrorism around the world?

Arundhati Roy on Kashmir’s Independence

Video

“India and Pakistan act as though Kashmir is a problem. But really, for them both, Kashmir is a solution. Kashmir is where they play their dirty games, and they don’t want to solve it because whenever they have internal problems, they can always pull this bunny out of the hat.”
