The Necessity of Constitutional Democracy to our Security
Kingship is an inspiration followed when one finds suffering- to give all dedication to peace, while desiring to be free of preconceptions. Through embracing patience, truth become obvious; a process of strengthening humility. Essentially, it is just a job (not, so much, a mystery).
Because of big money, do we have to keep Wu only because a liberal cannot afford to run against him?
Can a socialist or green unseat Wu? I think it is impossible. A Democrat can't challenge him because of his sellout votes for campaign support.
So, today I was given a little postcard reading:
Our Bill of Rights :: for children + youth

Interesting, no? See below for the full text.

Even in World War II, when the enemy was fascism and Hitler, a reporter like Ernie Pyle could write of the horrors and waste of war, and describe the carnage in terms that defied the jingoism of the day. Where are reporters like that in today's media, where we aren't even allowed to see the dead, much less write about them.
It's was 35 years ago when "tin soldiers and Nixon" come to Ohio's Kent State University
Recent statements by Noam Chomsky and Ward Churchill show a turn towards the irrational amongst leftists who continue to deny obvious signs that 9/11 was an inside job.
The Chief's son, Foxworth Jr. was accused of raping a woman in his custody and was cleared by the DA and police
You'd think the bush family would have trained them better, since they keep talking about "FAMILY VALUES," don't you? I'd bet you the SS just loves watching these girls undress or do whatever they do in open view of the public.
It's about first lady Laura Bush and a horse.
Our society is wrestling to define itself in the shadow of the Terri Schiavo's tragedy.
The Democratic leadership should be pressing for quick withdrawal of all troops from Iraq.
That's what most Democrats want, too. Your performance in the early stages of the primary, and your recent chairmanship of the party, were made possible by many, many progressive and liberal Democrats. It was their hope and expectation that you would prevent the party from repeating its past drift to the Republican-lite center. They hoped that this time the party would not abandon them or its core beliefs again.
I listened to KGO (Radio 810) last night (5-2-05) and Bernie Ward made the comment about Fuck face jerry falwell calling for the killing of federal judges who don't follow what the fucked up christian right-wing nut cases want.
State Legislature refuses to act and put healthy foods in schools.
Floyd Decker a former Employee has no truth in Him. He has lied to the Mortuary Board and has commited acts against decedents which the Oregon Board of licensure has been informed about and hopefully he shall never be allowed to practice in any state for he is UNfit to do so.
This is getting scary and it all checks out.

So why burn the flag?
Now that Bush has admitted his plan is to cut Social Security for the middle class, it's time for progressives to take him down. No compromises, no cutbacks, and a call for the rich to pay Social Security taxes on all income, not just the first $90,000. ------------------------------
Bush's reign of terror includes free pass to destroy the liberty and property of Bush's critics.
The American Republic belongs to the people! I believe that antiwar activists, like Ron Kovic, a veteran of the Vietnam conflict, are the real patriots in the battle against the Iraqi War. Yet, Neocons, such as that repulsive William Kristol regularly wrap themselves in the American flag. He has no right to claim the flag as a symbol for his dubious cause. Isn't it time the Antiwar Movement seized the patriotic initiative away from Kristol and his ilk?
Great Story at the PSU Vanguard site:
Honest people publicly humiliate criminals. Targets are leaders and big corporations who put profits ahead of everything else.
Portland Metro Pacific Green Party Chair opines that Portland should limit its municipal takeover of PGE to city boundaries as a way to ensure that it can control its destiny. It is possible that Portland could acquire all of PGE territory and lose control of a board of directors and discover it has minimal voice in its electricity destiny.Portland should condemn Portland General Electric assetts in Portland only, avoid a purchase of PGE "stock" and avoid collaborating with conservative interests outside of Portland that do not share Portland's values about ecology and sustainability.
I couldn't be downtown today for the Mayday rally & march?

Mom is at a loss for words after watching David Ray Griffin's presentation on C-Span2 this morning.
This week came news that those mad GM scientists have inserted a human gene into rice. Could this be the ticket to propel a new Oregon GM labeling initiative to success?
"Eight hours for work, eight hours for rest and eight hours for what we will!" was the slogan of the 340,000 workers who marched in cities across the U.S. on May 1, 1886, calling for the eight-hour day.
NEW YORK The worldwide movement to end nuclear weapons, energized and united with the antiwar movement, is converging here for a month of actions. Kicking it off is a May 1 mass "No Nukes! No Wars!" march. On May 2, the United Nations opens a review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which aims to curb and eventually eliminate these weapons of mass destruction.
There is a secret clause in the Trident submarine treaty that was signed by Mrs Thatcher in 1983. The secret clause states that the British Prime Minister is required to go to war if he/she gets the order from the President of the United States.
Will the Republicans abandon their deeply unpopular plan to dismantle THE most popular government program in the history of the U.S.A.? No, of course not. They still believe -- and think that corporate media will convince us -- that Bush has a mandate. EVERYTHING that the Republicans want is what the American people want. So, they won't back down, they'll just put the same thing into a new package.
It's like when you send a steak back to the kitchen because it's too tough -- the cook spits on it and sends it back with a sprig of parsley. "Enjoy!"
It is imperative that the American people understand

a letter to the editor of "Green Anarchy" concerning an article in issue #16 (Winter 2004) concerning surveillance cameras and "rewilding" tactics against them.
Just found out my State Representative, Mary Nolan, does not support Senate Bill 861, to stop the cruel and unnecessary force-feeding of birds for foie gras. This even though no Democratic State Senators voted against it, and two Republicans even voted for it.
Potter and Leonard may not be saints (who among is can say otherwise?), but they have shown such courage and integrity in standing up against the JTTF. They're going to be getting a lot of bad noise for this from a lot of bad people, and we REALLY ought to each take a minute to write them a letter thanking them for what they've done.
You'd think he'd want to answer our questions
If there is such a thing.
The First Lady was here Thursday, and I just now heard about it!
The general election in Britain is next Thursday 5 May. Will Blair get a bloody nose? This legal advice just leaked to the Guardian could reveal a lot.
For a left wing summary of the election see
What's at stake in the British elections?
The press has hardly mentioned the election in this country. Still, when do the mention any real news.
Senate majority (Republican) leaders have made it plain that either the Democratic majority must allow the Republicans to appoint Bush's extreme anti-environmental nominees for the Federal judiciary OR the Republicans will go ahead with what they (Republicans) coined as their "nuclear option" -- eliminating the long-standing Senate rule that allows unlimited debate on votes that rise to the level of issues of conscience for the minority. That's what filibusters have generally been about -- issues of conscience -- as when Oregon's Senator Hatfield attempted a one-man filibuster against the development of a neutron bomb back in the 1970's.
It turns out that the Senate Democrats have what they don't call, but could be called, their own "nuclear option." Democrats have made it plain that either the Republican majority must back down and allow vetting of Bush's extremist anti-environmental nominees for the Federal judiciary OR the Democrats will slow the Senate down to a crawl and block all legislation (except for matters of national security). When you look back at the history of this Congress, shutting down all legislation doesn't look like a bad idea. Shutting down the Senate would mean no more of Bush's so-called "reforms" -- bankruptcy "reform", tort "reform" -- and it would preclude any more talk of so-called "Social Security reform."
We wrote an angry letter to Hoodoo in response to the Forest Service awarding a contract to that private company for them to manage and charge fees for access to the springs. The fee to be charged is $5 for parking and then $5 per person to soak, per day. The reason for this is that the Forest Service is being defunded by Bush in order to open our public lands and recreation facilities to private companies. Read the exchange between us and Hoodoo President Chuck Shepard. You can also email him at the address provided.
I think I've discovered where those pesky "weapons of mass destruction" are in Iraq. WE have them!!
Bush's fascist SS is investigating Air America.
If you would only look up...
"Private lake," the plaques warn. "Please stay on the steps."
Who's Lake? Our Lake? LOC's Lake, Rich property owner's lake? Welcome to Oregon's own California...Lake Oswego.
So why did the Bush administration go to court and oppose a judgement ordering Iraq to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in damages to 17 captured Americans tortured by Saddam back in the first Gulf War? He had to! If he'd gone along, hundreds of people tortured by U.S. forces in the current "War on Terror" could turn around and sue the U.S. government. ----------------------------------------------------
There is the corporate media bias that excluded Kucinich, not from the Democratic debates in early 2004, but from coverage of the debates. The same bias excluded Kucinich AND Nader from consideration -- and MORE IMPORTANTLY absolutely excluded consideration of the positions that both Kucinich and Nader proposed as solutions to the multiple problems that plague the country and the people of the U.S.A.
There is, however, another bias that is also important to perpetuating the rule of corporatism in America -- the systematic bias to give an edge to the GOP over the Democrats. The underlying message of that bias is that the Democrats do not represent a majority of the people. Many here at PIMC would agree that the Democrats do not represent a majority -- but the version promoted by corporate media is that the people are MORE "conservative", more pro-war, more anti-welfare than the Democratic Party. Also, the American people are portrayed as more complacent, or less alarmist, about environmental degradation and about corporate corruption than the Democrats.
These are the two forks of the corporatist propaganda tongue --
1) Exlude leftist thinking from the public mind (which includes preventing accurate public knowledge of leftist action); and,
2) Portray the public (thus produce a self-image for the public) as to the RIGHT of the Democratic Party ("more conservative than the Democrats").
PLUS (3) -- Of course, there is also the blatant fascist militarist suppression of all "sensitive" information -- see recent article, "Facts? We don't need no stinkin' facts!" --

Aside from being a nazi (sorry, FORMER nazi) Cardinal Ratzinger is just another tyrant in a long line of oppressors.
Israel charges that the nineteen year old "memories" of a technician under the influence of torture is more of a threat and danger than its present government's refusal to commit to anti nuclear proliferation.
