"The time is coming for us to have to live closer to the earth, closer to each other. There are things we need to know. We need to start teaching them to each other, freely."
"Developing strong, cooperative relationships with each other is as important as developing these relationships with the natural world. Strong communities are like a tightly woven basket. During times of drought (bad times) it can hold much water (mutual assistance)."
U.S. military in Iraq for the loooooong haul!
One would think that would be in the center! But, no, once you start moving to the extremes, right and left, the only way you'll ever meet up with yourself is out there on the edge.
Rationalizations for our sacrifice
They continue to try to frame me so that they can arrest me. This is just one more attempt.
question of the weekend
I have had this routine lately of getting my news from 5 different sources everyday.
Portland local news channel (which one I watch doesn't matter, their all the same)
A must read for anyone interested in the system of the Social State. A brief history of the creation, as well as future direction. Written by a 'Licensed' Political Theory specialist. [University of Oregon]
Odd is it not with steel prices on the rise?
Hear the voice inside Bush's transmitter.
CAUTION: This is an audio satire.
This is a quick editorial about the excuses Oregon Government uses to tap money from citizens.
A Vancouver dispatch
The Bush administration is not trying to win the war in Iraq, they are trying to prolong it for higher profits.
a Flash movie.
Number one Chickenhawk W.J. Clinton on Wednesday said that the Iraq war has been (and I quote) "Good for the region". Did Bush Sr. give him a lobotomy in his sleep in Indonesia or WHAAA? It's been REAL good for the 100,000 and rising dead civilians, 30 times the WTC dead. It's REAL good for the thousands of young soldiers returning home in wheelchairs and boxes. Can you imagine anyone taking his wife seriously as a presidential candidate? Is this the alternative vision the Democrats are offering us? Republicrats indeed! Hey Bill- YOU enlist!
We thought Senator Smith would consider opposing the Nuclear Option. We were wrong.
I really have a big problem with people who think christians, mainly the leadership of these churches follow their bible!
"Fourth arrest in Hammond sex scandal involving children and animals"
In the 2000 presidential election, the poorest county in the U.S. voted to support George W. Bush for president! It voted against its own "economic" interests because Bush stood for "family values." The influence of the Religious Right extends far beyond ultraconservative politics to economics as well. Its advocacy of an unregulated "Free Market," is bringing the U.S. to its knees, as our manufacturing jobs continue to flee overseas.
It seems as though the US is walking around with blinders on, ear plugs in their ears and being lead down the path of out right lies and untruths when it comes to "republicans christian values." "The Mule Consented"
It hasnt't taken long for the corporate media to sketch in the faint lines of the life that was wasted yesterday in the cold, gray morning on Burnside. He was a drug addict, an ex-con, he was a "transient." What more can be said? Well, plenty. Before we swallow this lurid portrait laid out for us with all the subtleties of a magik marker set, maybe we need to look deeper. A lot deeper.
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce and brave man, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." - Mark Twain
While we find Monsanto's (NYSE: MON) bribing of Indonesian officials in an attempt to get favorable laws passed concerning genetically engineered crops, despicable we don't have the kindest of words to describe the Dept. of Justice's unforgiveable deferrment of prosecution for three years either.
Beware of Fascists claiming moral high ground!
American police seem more trigger happy than they did a few decades ago. Why?
Something the "well dressed protester"
will be wearing in 2005 ???
Following Newsweek's controversial story about the defilement of the Qur'an at the US government's Guanatamo Bay torture chambers, we here at the Desecration Research Laboratories decided to conduct a series of experiments involving sewage treatment technologies and sacred texts.
Japanese police have a hell of a lot more skill, courage, and patience than Portland police.
CHICAGO — "You might see me coming down the aisle 20 years from now with my walker," said flight attendant Melissa Madden. Faced with the slashing of their pensions to the tune of $6.6 billion, she and other United Airlines flight attendants here warn that if United gets away with using bankruptcy to dump its pension obligations, the nation's entire defined-benefit pension system — and the futures of the 44 million workers it covers — could come tumbling down. Retirement for American workers could become a thing of the past.
For years, people on the extreme right have warned of a takeover of America by the black helicopter army of the UN. Well, there is the danger of a fascist America, but, surprisingly, it is being ushered in by the right, not the left.
Brief discription of the spiritual crisis in Lake County, Oregon and how the church has far too much control of politics in the county.

A fine example of yellow journalism here in the Daily Astorian. Thanks, DA, for discouraging those of us who are working our butts off trying to stop the corporations from completely occupying our River and our minds.
If anyone cares, Home Depot and Walmart have now laid cliam to the beautiful Clatsop Plains. Ya'll come on out to the mouth of the River now, before it's turned into a fucking strip mall and petrochemical dump!
I vent about peace, the atom bomb, STAR WARS, and why we are all on anti depressants, insane religions, or capitalist greed trips,...... alos patriarchy, and race.
We keep speaking of an African-American being killed, but what was his name? He was a human being, a person, maybe a veteran, maybe a hero, or a loved member of somebody's family.
"I'm interested in film because, to me, it's the closest approximation in art that we have to the actual flow of consciousness. I think in art, but especially in films, people are trying to confirm their own existence."
be the wisdom be with us forever
can that be publish on the front page of every news paper
There are a lot of right-wing websites out there, many of which have one thing in common with conservative talk radio: Their intended audience is made up of those who already agree with them. http://pabaah.com/ Is one such site.
...well, not entirely.
Do we really want to impeach?
Do they actually like her, or think she was a good mayor?
What will it take? This is why so many good people support this criminal administration. They are good people with bad information! This is not a matter of bias in the media; it is a matter of deception.
Some things are so disturbing that they are almost impossible to believe. That is why, in the 9/11 enigma, less is more.
Until these questions are answered there is no need to establish more doubt. What we have here is solid undisputed evidence that we were never told the truth.
A nutshell review of Alex Jones new video documentary
20 years after the bombing of the MOVE organization, conditions for the black community is the same, both in Philadelphia and in Portland.
"For those that find this unacceptable and would like to join me in letting the people in congress know just exactly how you feel and what you think of what they are doing in your name..........."
I'm tired of this nonsense about letting members of the illusionsry two- parties know how you feel. They could care less. And the only hopeful alternative, The Green Party, neutered itself in 2004.
Build houses, not benches.
Internation consideration in colaborations maybe a positive note: link to www.expressindia.com
Make sure your pets are fixed!!! Kitten and puppy season is already upon us, due to the mild winter. Once again shelters all across the country will be inundated with pregnant cats and dogs, or new mothers with litters; or, saddest of all, orphaned litters with the mother nowhere in sight.
Monday Bush went to a plant which produces Biodiesel from soy beans in Virginia. Bush says he wants more Biodiesel.
What is going on here?
Although the journalistic errors of Michael Isikoff and Dan Rather were similar?both involving some misinformation from a source?the way the political right and the White House have responded is quite at odds. Could it be Isikoff's record as the reporter who brought us Monica Lewinsky? -------------------
Ed Schultz show provides corroborating evidence from Senator Bob Graham and General Tommy Franks indicting Bush of fixing the facts for Iraq.
and am wondering....IF...
It could have been worse; much worse. Bush could have been smart.
Reflect on those who voted for war. Clearly there reasons were wrong. You knew better. So what can be done? Where was the filibuster when it could have save at least a quarter of a million lives by my estimation?
A leaflet of the Communist Voice Organization presented at the Detroit Conference of the Million Workers March held May 14-5. The leaflet opposes the alliance with certain Detroit city council members and union bureaucrats that has developed within the Detroit organization of MWM and opposes the same policy nationally.
The new revenue forcast gives the state a little more to work with. The question is whether the money will be used to cover medical insurance for more people.
The big-shot-execs of American business' think they are real
smart to invest in China, and it's becoming an epidemic. More
and more jobs are being lost to the communist workers at
35 cents an hour, and billions of investment dollars are pouring
out of this country. But there are a few things these execs need
to keep in mind.
Drivers who run red lights are a huge menace to safety.
