Lipstick on a Pig - The Folly of Media Reform
"The Democrats are taking this prolonged dive in spite of a growing majority of Americans wanting out of Iraq"
You know we're fucked when Pat Buchanan is to the left of the democratic party on the iraq war, israel & trade policies. The Green Party is irelevant & the only one on the left with any balls is a seventy one year old man.
I guess the 5 surviving members of the Smoketown 6 better watch each others backs.
Steve Jackson, of Steve Jackson Games, accurately predicted subsequent 9/11 events in 1991. Because of his intent to publish his work, in the form of a role playing card game, he was arrested by US Secret Service and placed on trial. The judge threw out the case and awarded Steve Jackson damages. In 1995, Jackson published the award winning game "Iluminati New World Order".
"Hearthcheck" zine, by political prisoners Jeffrey "Free" Luers and Rob "los ricos" Thaxton (both currently serving time in Salem, Oregon), is an exceptional booklet of information... Written in concise language, lacking pretense, this zine made me feel I am not alone in my beliefs...Luers' statement, "Maybe you'll wait until you have to kill for water" sums it up nicely.
An emaciated and rag clad American Peace movement was found dead in a San Francisco alley deep in the mission district. The area is known for homeless crack overdoses, but police say that evidence from a local video camera has implicated the same infamous
Wet Paper Bag said to be responsible for the demise of the union and enviromental movements...developing...
I thought this was worth posting.
A Vancouver dispatch
At Oregon State University, there is currently a proposal to erect a memorial on campus to student soldiers from OSU. The proposal is currently pushing its way through the OSU bureaucracy with a minimum of fuss. This column, published in the OSU Daily Barometer on Friday, May 13th, argues that war memorials mean vastly different things to different people, something that's missing from the current debate.
How can there be a so-called "economic recovery" without the creation of new jobs? Well, thanks to author, activist and social critic, Stanley Aronowitz, we now know the scheming Plutocrats have been able to "delink" the two. Speaking in Baltimore, MD, at Red Emma's Coffeehouse, he detailed some of the means used to deprived workers in this country of their jobs. Outsourcing, of course, is only one of those Labor-bashing tactics.
My guess is that base closures will be used to punish the unfaithful and pay

Just examining what is realy going on....
Are we experiences a Soviet style shell-game with its military bases and support being severed from the local communities and economic network that have developed over the last 50 years?
We need a map of these closures and reenfortified bases.
How many are being moved out of "blue states" (as economic punishment) and moved to "red states"?
Pick an important story and google it. You'll find plenty of hits, but f it's critical of the current administration, odds are you won't find many hits on corporate media sites?just on alternative and oversease media sites. No wonder the American public is turning away from mainstream purveyors of "news."

When 60 years ago the United States became the first (and since then the only) country to use atomic weapons by dropping them on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, hundreds of thousands of people were killed. Those at the hypercenter, or ground zero, were the "lucky" ones — they were instantly vaporized. Others died, but not instantly, living their last moments in pain and misery. Their flesh melting off, many perished while looking for water to ease their suffering.
As U.S. casualties in Iraq topped 1,600, the U.S. Congress approved another $82 billion for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and related spending, with the bulk going to the Iraq occupation.
American has a maximum sustainable carrying capacity of 50 Million People
Dependence on Phantom Carrying Capacity
by William R Catton, Jr
It should be clear that the actual population of the United States has already overshot its carrying capacity as measured by the energy-producing capability of visible American acreage. To achieve genuine self-sufficiency in energy depending on visible acreage only, the population of America would have had to level off no later than 1880 at 50 million people.
In his April 1, 2005 commentary to NPR's Living on Planet Earth, Jordan Cove partner Robert Mac Farlane reports that pipelines and shipping are vulnerable easy targets and almost impossible to defend.

I believe we need to start a new third party in Oregon to:
1. Provide a ballot line for Nader in 2008.
2. Pressure Democrats to move left by running against them in close elections.
American Oil Production Peaked in 1970 & America has only 3% of the World's Oil Reserves Left!
For starters, level3.com is the backbone for us here in AmeriKa folks. Their clients are isp's you might be using to sign on with. If you ask me , I'll tell you that level3.com is the biggest protector of internet attackers out here on the web. I challenge level3.com to put their reputation on the line and go after these creepy little hackers!
Conservative economists worship the market, but don't like to talk about China, where state control over capital allocation and rigid controls on currency exchange rates have produced a record rate of economic growth. ----------------
The past 25 years or so have seen various forms of debates around the costs and benefits of free trade. Free trade is a component of a broader economic model known in the mainstream as neo-liberalism. These debates have been made more intense as proponents and critics of free trade struggle to make their point in the context of the process of globalization.
The party is still raging like mad. The drunks and the addicts and the gangs are sending out for more pizza, more booze, and more drugs and they are killing people to do it. Some of us are sobering up and waking up. We are starting to see the damage that has been done and we are whispering to each other, "We have to kick the criminals out".

Sometimes admissions of racism can be a healthy and open acceptance of responsibility for collective or individual sins of White privilege. Sometimes these admissions are cynical ploys aimed at normalizing racial abuse.
Progressives who think warnings about "theocracy" are an exaggeration should take a closer look at "Justice Sunday: Filibustering People of Faith," the Christian Right telethon headlined by Senate Majority Leader William Frist. Envision the carefully designed image that the far-right Family Research Council, the main organizer of the April 24 event, beamed into conservative churches across the country: a political rally from a large, comfortable mega-church in Louisville, with a middle-class audience listening with rapt attention to political operatives who self-identify as religious leaders-and at the bottom of the screen, streaming video with the photos, names and phone numbers of targeted U.S. senators. The visual message was clear: the church is dominant over the state and senators should toe the line on eliminating the filibuster and confirming Bush judges or pay the price.
It is very fashionable for radicals to jump on the "Peak Oil" bandwagon these days, but it's time to pull that wagon off the side of the road. "Peak Oil" is a hoax that is being perpetrated by the fossil fuel industry and blindly parroted by many on the left. Fortunately, I can prove that it is a lot of hot air, smoke, and mirrors by deductive reasoning and a few, simple facts. (Deductive reasoning involves presenting a hypothesis first, and checking to see if it fits the available evidence. Similarly, it involves debunking an accepted theory if it doesn't fit all of the available facts).

60 years after Hitler - some german activists took action. They wanted to show that the danger of fascism will not be banned as long as capitalism and militarism is not banned. Therefore a watchtower and many vehicles of the german army (Bundeswehr) became pink over night...
I chose to live my life not seeking riches. I am willing to work for what I need, depend on no one except myself and be responsible for my actions. I pride myself on being a law abiding honest person.
Since medical care is part of our basic cost of living, we are entitled to have it paid for by our employers. Some states, tired of paying the ever increasing costs of medical care for those who don't have medical insurance, are considering forcing employers to provide it. We should do this in Oregon.
CSPAN does it again
President George W. Bush needs his head examined! He has put America on the road to endless wars and endless debt. His latest outrage is turning over 58 million acres of our nation's pristine forests to special interests to exploit. The situation is desperate! What can be done? I know it sounds like black humor, but I suggest that Bush do "Dr. Phil's TV Show." If the White House belongs in the Public Domain, then Bush's warped brain should, too!

Mother's Day was not originally conceived as a consumer gimmick. It began
in 1870 as a rallying cry for mothers who lost husbands and sons in the
Civil War. Here is the original Mother's Day Proclamation, written in
Boston by Julia Ward Howe (yes, the same one who wrote the Battle Hymn of
the Republic; for more history, see below)

KATU News has been at the local forefront as a shameless apologist for the diabolical drive towards the twisted neo-conservative vision of a PAX Americana. KATU has consistently trumpeted government backed propaganda creations such as the Jessica Lynch fable, the Pat Tillman fairytale, the heavily staged toppling of the Saddam statue, and the many Iraq 'WMD' and 'ties to terrorism' hoaxes.
For every Minuteman who has not enlisted someone dies in your stead; is wounded for your idiotic Patriotic beliefs; some "woman" dies in your "manly
place." For every white American Republican Christian who has not enlisted for Iraq, and without courage supports the war someone dies in your place!
The U.S. has a chronic shortage of jobs. Governments at all levels are using this as an excuse to give tax credits to big business. The result is a loss of tax revenue to support public services. We are throwing people out of the lifeboats. Another result is a shift in the tax burden from corporations to the rest of us. And from what I've read, the tax credits do NOT produce jobs. We need to demand that our elected officials stop playing this game.
The habit of using the media-term "9/11" to refer to the terrorists attacks in America is a bad mistake, at best, since it cuts off the most blatant piece of evidence.
WASHINGTON — Defenders of Social Security charged this week that a "means test" on Social Security as proposed by President George W. Bush would inflict huge benefit cuts for 70 percent of recipients, clearing the way to destroy the system vital to Americans' economic security.
NEW YORK — On May 1, the eve of a world meeting at the United Nations to review the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), tens of thousands of people from around the globe marched through the streets here under the slogan "No nukes! No wars!"
Well kids, this looks like it might be it... Car culture is on the skids. GM & Ford look like they might be going under and they'll probably drag much of the rest of the world economy down with them. The word "depression" has started to get some serious use in the mainstream media in the last few hours (a few hours too late) and it would probably happen even if they weren't allowed to use the word. So what's it, the depression, going to be like? Will another world war drag us out of it? That seems unlikely (seeing as how another world war would probably be uneconomical) but if it's not, what will another world war be like? Oh, the fortune cookie cursed us for we do indeed live in interesting times!
