text Gewindeberg Lays Out Next Step Towards Abolition by Remigius Presto
In remarks recently delivered at Speakers Corner, Gewindeberg said the world was waiting to be presented with a proposal how to put an end to the current misery of democratic capitalism and its failure to cease its aggressions and abuses. A large part of the problem is that the misery attempts to bring about situations where few to no alternatives are possible as to influence decisions in its favour, which of course due to that happen to be more miserable than those where they are.

text Welcome, Fracking! by JohnMonet
For Okies a beautiful September morning became much less beautiful after the state of emergency declaration caused by rather sensible earth shocks. However such phenomena have become a practice for them. They experienced 226 more than 3.0 magnitude earthquakes in just the first two and a half months of 2016.
