According to the rules, I now must display the rules.
- If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think. [Having been tagged three times, I will tag five for each or a total of 15 blogs.]
- Link to this post so that people can find the exact origin of the meme.
- Optional: Proudly display the Thinking Blogger Award on your site with a link to the post that you wrote.
- The Peace Tree - a veritable oasis of reason amid an irrational din. A recent excerpt:
i think that it is mind boggling that in a country with less want than possibly any other country on the planet- that we should covet anything that anyone else has. much less blow up their families to get it. think about that for a moment
- 70 reasons to doubt -where Damien has compiled almost everything known about 911. This work of one man equals that of most think tanks. His knowledge is encyclopedic. A must visit.
- Intelligentaindigena Novajoservo - explores the plight of indigenous peoples all over the world. A recent post: Ward Churchill: An Indigenist activist willing to stand up for what is right.
- Bad Attitudes, by Jerome Doolittle, Chuck Dupree et al., epitomizes a blog of "thinking bloggers". They bring to blogging some serious credentials and don't need to be told who Richard Hofstadter is. Check them out for informed opinion.
- BeggarsCanBeChoosers.com is the work of professional, award-winning journalist Marc McDonald. A recent post, The Real Reason The Wingnuts Hate YearlyKos, exposes the hypocrisy of right wing propagandists like Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh.
- cannablog which recently made the point beside a reproduction of Guernica that Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole, but Colin Powell ....[read the post]
- Daveawayfromhome who writes eloquently of a loss felt by many:"For over two decades I've watched as America has slowly given itself over to the powers of Authority. America, the rebel nation, the home of rock-and-roll, somehow seems to have given up the urge to make it's own choices."
- Les Enrages. From this excerpt, a reminder "The heart is what counts here, for that’s where Liberty lives." Until we get the bullet proof indictment that puts the Bush gang in a dank cell, that will do!
- News Sophisticate, lately, exposes Blackwater recruitment of its hired guns in Latin America. This is, of course, symptomatic of the fascist society that the US has become.
- Department of Homeland Conspiracy is new to my blogroll but putting issues even more bluntly: The United States of America is Dead
- Any blog that could write of George Tenet that he is "alleged to have assisted our nation" deserves recognition. A tag, therefore for Firedoglake.
- Freedom and Democracy are Dying, is the work of a "thinking blogger" from Canada who asks his neighbor: Why Does Saudi Arabia Need Military Aid? Indeed!
- Pensito Review is a mainstay, an essential resource that reduces global issues to their effects on you. An example: Global Warming Sucks!
- Vagabond Scholar --the work of a dedicated blogger who takes the time to tighten his prose while sharing videos of the Clancy Brothers. Don't miss "Will You Go, Lassie, Go."
- 15. And because thinking engages the whole human being, my final entry: Watergate Summer. I want OUR COUNTRY BACK...."
