ambulance_fp.jpgThe past two weeks have seen a remarkable effort on the part of the US government and numerous media outlets to directly contradict reality.

greyalbum_fp.jpgMix the Beatles' The White Album with rapper Jay-Z's Black Album and what do you get? DJ Danger Mouse's experimental CD, The Grey Album.

Basically, they promote a development that transfers money from banks to governments to multinational corporations. The multinational corporations then deliver the resources to the people who have no say."
