Challenger for Wu
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.

Oh for the Day When Journalists Were Journalists
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.

An Open Letter to Howard Dean
! 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.

The Republic, the American Flag & the Left
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?

Portland should limit its acquisition of PGE/Enron to municipal boundaries.
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.

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.

Social Security Update
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!"

The other "nuclear option"
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."

Cougar Hot Springs defunded, privatized
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.

Bush's Torture Tort Reform: Don't Sue, Don't Get Sued
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. ----------------------------------------------------

The forked tongue of corporate media
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!" --
