Things have been rather hectic around Black Sun Gazette Central lately, so forgive my lack of regular communication. I’ve got a few articles brewing that I’m sure my loyal readership is sure to enjoy.

However, I wanted to take a moment to go back to the subject of the International Socialist Organization and their website,

One of the most common arguments by ISO members is that the tendency with which I am in solidarity “does nothing.” I’d like to take some time to seriously examine this claim, in a more reasoned and less emotional way than my prior screed on the ISO.

I don’t know if you’ve looked at the news lately, but apparently we’re in some kind of economic recovery. You’d probably have to be reading the news to know about it, because no one that I know is experiencing the effects, and economic indicators that affect people without stock portfolios don’t seem to indicate that anything is getting better. To anyone paying attention, we’re in far more danger of total economic collapse than we were two years ago.

From Nick P. at Black Sun Gazette: We’re going on two years of the global economic crisis that has rocked our society to its foundations. All the conventional wisdom of the post-war…

For the first time in almost 40 years Massachusetts is sending a Republican to the Senate. While this doesn’t trouble me as much as others, mostly because the Democrats are largely the party of giving Republicans whatever they want, it is worth discussing.

Democrats thought they were going to waltz into the Senate. There was a pervasive attitude that the Democratic primary was the general election. While the right is trying to turn Massachusetts into some kind of microcosm of America and the election into a referendum on President Obama, all the election proves is that when Democrats act like Republicans, voters prefer the real thing.

As if having to deal with a pig ignorant woman for several months oozing her stupendous American exceptionalist stupidities on the world wasn’t enough, the American media market now has to deal with Sarah Palin indefinitely.

This past week Fox News rolled out Sarah Palin with all the pomp and circumstance of a visiting foreign dignitary. It wasn’t enough to have her on one top rated Fox News show. Sarah had to make the rounds to all of them. Being the brave soul that I am, I viewed all three.

Since I escaped without my brain melting and oozing out my ears — no word on whether I have a tumor yet or not — I will now report back to you some crucial insights from what I heard.

Nick P. at Black Sun Gazette: Last year the economy entered a free fall. Conditions that haven’t been approximated since the 1930s were the norm. It is time to take a cold,…

Few events have captured the American imagination more than the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The American public and our greatest intellectuals have poured over the evidence over and over again. It nags at national consciousness like a wound that won’t heal because you keep picking at it.

The solution to the problem always lies on the tip of our collective tongue. Of course, a great deal of the evidence is locked up, hidden away in the vaults of the intelligence community. This article will not attempt to shed new light on the assassination.

Much of the information presented here is available elsewhere, and has been repeated ad nauseum. I wish to concentrate on the subject of the man Lee Harvey Oswald, a singularly fascinating figure in American history.

Perhaps I’m just used to looking for such things, but the narrative being crafted regarding Christmas’ plot to blow up an airplane is highly suspect.

My first feelings of uneasiness came after it was reported that the Nigerian man who tried to blow up a plane on Christmas Day was tied to Yemen. Pretty fucking convenient considering that both rhetoric and action against Yemen have been ratcheted up in the last couple of weeks.

As the story continues to unfold, there are increasing reasons to question the official story.

From Buelahman at Black Sun Gazette I love to watch the lunatic fringe squirm as they realize that their little kingdom is falling apart. Its not that I get jollies knowing the…

From Nick P. at Black Sun Gazette The lion’s share of the world’s problems stem from one larger metaproblem. That problem is the profit system, and the control of the world’s resources…
