The Thinking Bloggers

Nur al Cubicle has generously awarded me a "Thinking Blogger Award," something that was started by DKatASilentCacaphony This is an attempt to construct a pyramid, essentially, of thoughtful blogs. Here are the rules:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

Stef at Famous for 15 Megapixels Wry, informed, often wicked social comment. Oblique ripostes, combined with searing insights, that hit you right out of the sun, unsettling, often belly achingly funny but bitingly perceptive comment from the London street. Plus some damn fine photography.

Canadian Spectator
is a portal that links to and provides concise, witty, elegant comment ranging from the future of solar power to the probity and integrity of the Bush Administration - plus a damning indictment on the arcane world of Canadian (for want of a better word) politics. Great admirer of Lord Black and his charming and talented journalist partner in crime. A daily must.

Donald Hunt at Signs of the Economic Apocalypse - a weekly, rich brew of excerpts, quotes, comments, musing and some inconveniently tough economic facts that act as the straws in the wind, presaging an economic meltdown that .." will probably happen soon triggered by some “unforeseen” event that many people will actually have foreseen." or musing on the consequences of the Bird Flu paradigm and Internet Overload ..."they’re going to have to try to fit ten pounds of shit into a five pound bag, ...and soon."

Kate at Kate a Blog ex military lady, mother and grandmother, writes incisively about US and world politics. Entertains, educates and leaves you feeling better informed and warm all over ..."Yep, ol' Ziggy, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Rockefeller cohort, long-time player and prevaricator for American political parties, warns us. Although generally associated with Democrats / progressives Brzezinski seems to enjoy the company of both sides of the aisle; sometimes referred to as the Democrats Henry Kissinger (meaning you get a kiss before bending over)." Shortage of culinary hints however.

From Nazareth, The Jonathan Cook Website British independent journalist who deals magnificently with Israeli state censorshit ... and gets the stories out. One of the few authentic voices from the Middle East. Recent book 'Blood and Religion: The Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State'.
