Election 2012: We all know about Obama vs. Romney, but that's only two of the men running for President. How about the other men and women from independent parties making a run for the White House? The mainstream media overlooks them and will rarely mention their names. Thanks to Mish, he gives us a primer about Third Party candidates, specifically Who Is On the Ballot In All 50 States – Files Lawsuit Demanding Inclusion in Presidential Debates. (Global Economic Analysis)
Big Pharma: The drugs you're taking don't work. The doctor's don't know. Neither do the patients. But the manufactures know what their drugs do and don't do. Yet, they are not revealing the truths behind the clinical trials. Sounds like a massive scam to me. The drugs don't work is a thorough breakdown about Big Pharma's latest scandal. (The Guardian)
Riots: In case you were not keeping tabs on the European financial crisis, it's gotten worse in Spain. We clued you in last week that Spain was the next country in the European Union to implode due to its own banking crisis. Spanish politicians are looking to the E.U. and Germany for bailouts, and they're not keen on hanging out billions in aid after coming to Greece's rescue earlier this year without some serious austerity measures. The citizens of Spain were not pleased. In Greece, angry citizens staged a 24-hour general strike and took to the streets en masse. Similar protests sprang up in Spain's capital of Madrid, except those gatherings quickly turned violent. See for yourself in... Corporate/Banker Dystopia Cometh... which is raw video of police clashing with protestors in Madrid. It's not pretty and only going to get worse. (Of Goats and Men)
Banksters: As if this latest round of money printing (a.k.a. QE3) isn't bad enough, the money-grubbing, gambling addicts on Wall Street are bitching at QE3 isn't good enough and they're jonesin' for QE4 or yet another round of crack-flavored money. (Economic Collapse Blog)
UFOs: There's been a lot of weird stuff happening around the Sun. A couple months ago, amateur scientists (along with actual NASA cameras) caught strange objects around the sun.

Big Brother: The Thought Police is not just something from the paranoid mind of Philip K. Dick.

AI: Thought Police gives you a haunting glimpse into artificial intelligence and pre-crime. (Get Mind Smart)
Broke City, USA: It's not an earthquake that is going to make California sink into the Pacific Ocean. Rather, California will drown by its own strangling debt. California has one of the most gruesome municipal crisis looming overhead because the states' politicians -- from both sides of the political spectrum -- have been kicking the can down the road for decades. It's a disaster in waiting. Just ask the citizens of Atwater, CA. Yes, the entire state of California is screaming after its fourth city is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. (Zero Hedge)
Riots: Greece is burning. Again. The pissed-off Greeks took to the streets en masse to protest Draconian austerity measures. Those protests never end well; protestors clashed with police and a riot ensued. Firebombs were thrown and police used tear gas to dispatch the angry mob. (End the Lie)
Conspiracy: Mish sounds off on a topic that makes a lot of historians uncomfortable... America and Western Civilization As a Whole Was Founded On a Conspiracy Theory. Take a look at the Declaration of Independence, which cites many examples about how the King of England had been conspiring against the colonies. That's the primary reason our Founding Fathers instituted a systems of checks and balances, so one aspect of the government will not get too out of control. (Global Economic Analysis)

Election 2012: Do we vote for the puppet on the right or for the puppet on the left? Aren't their strings being tugged by the same corporate puppetmasters? Democracy in America is just an illusion of choice. Chris Hedges' latest column is a gem... How do you take your poison? We're all about to swallow the "corporate pill" but who is going to administer us the pill? Nurse Obama or Nurse Romney? (Truth Dig)
Alien A.I.: We sent a rover up to Mars, so if Earthlings were to make contact with something not from our universe, wouldn't it make sense that we'd be visited by robots first? Wouldn't it be safer to send a probe to acquire data than to risk actual alien lifeforms? (First Contact)
Drugs: Forget about bath salts. The new rage is... Kratom, which is an organic pain reliever that looks like mint, but has euphoric effects that mimic opiates. Where can we score some Kratom? (Forbes)
Great Depression: It's been a rough couple of years, but has the last 5 years surpassed the Great Depression? Are things worse than they appear because of all of the mass media whitewashing the real economic numbers? (George Washington's Blog)
Banksters: The Federal Reserve, a private banking cartel which most Americans think is an arm of the federal government, never looks out for the best interests of hard-working Americans by drowning us in debt.

(The Daily Sheeple, YouTube)
Vice Taxes: Best way to curtail cigarette smoking... tax the hell out of a pack. Of course, if you're addicted to nicotine, it's nearly impossible to quit. The poor smokers end up in a tough conundrum, especially in New York City where a pack cost $12! Imagine if you work a slave-wage job that doesn't even pay $10/hour. You're working the first 1.5 hours of your day to just to feed a pack a day habit. If you smoke two or more, you're screwed. Instead of quitting, the working poor in NYC spends up to 25% of their income on cigarettes. (Zero Hedge)
