Having failed to kill off Social Security with private accounts, conservatives in Congress are now trying to render it useless by raising the retirement age further?this time to 69. That may be okay for a Wall Street lawyer who runs half-marathons and spends two hours in the gym, but for the average American worker bee, employers have by that point pretty much ruined her or his health and body. Some "reform." --------------
This petition is asking you to support the Oregon Coast, Clatsop County in its stand against the careless siting of LNG in our community.
Here is a link to the research done for the impeachment of trickydick about 31 years ago which we will need to go over as we prepare for the impeachment of the antichrist. We must first be in top shape ourselves, however, and we must have a long list ALL the rethuglicans we will have to impeach if we are to do this right. C'mon, Folks! Let's go get'em.
Here's something that really floored me. Lots of commentary below. The neocons want the IMF and the World Bank to be formally in on international war planning policy, within the U.N.
Plus, anything domestically that occurs WITHIN any country globally, Bush wants to be considered an "international" cause not for U.N. dialogue or talks, but for repressive war led by the U.N. in defense of transnational corporate interests whenever they are threatened "internally."
Well, June 14th, 2005 should go down history as a day when porn became the new christian right spokespersonn No! I'm not lying folks, it's true, the 36DD boob porn star stated that she is a christian and believes in christian values? Had dinner with them there christian republicans in DC.

There are many things we must do immediately, as soon as we can take back control of America's destiny.
Zombies are hypothetical creatures of the sort that philosophers have been known to cherish. A zombie is physically identical to a normal human being, but completely lacks conscious experience. Zombies look and behave like the conscious beings that we know and love, but "all is dark inside." There is nothing it is like to be a zombie.
In May of 2005, a small group of committed radical feminist activists, myself included, began a campaign against Cafe Press for selling products promoting rape and glamorizing violence against women. Our success was mixed. Over 100 sexist products were removed almost immediately after the call to action went out (thanks if you wrote, emailed or called!), but more than 200 "donkey punch" items are still listed at Cafe Press.
Direct action feels satisfying enough, but when you can see the ripples of your movement towards equality further away than you suspected they would travel, it feels sublime. Reading blogger Rob Horning's article today was the most exciting thing that has happened to this feminist on a Tuesday since Buffy ended.

it would seem that it is high time to consider the unthinkable. is the conspiracy a mere theory or a chilling reality?
A few noteworthy events happening just the day before "9/11".
What John Conyers is doing as minority chair of the House Judiciary Committee is probably without precedent. The minority members of the Committee are not authorized to conduct a Congressional Impeachment Hearing, as such, but they can - if they dare and they do - conduct hearings into impeachable offenses. WHAT YOU CAN DO --
IF YOU HAVE YET TO SIGN THE CONYERS LETTER, GO TO
SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM AND CLICK ON LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT
But what is impeachment and how does it work?
The Alley Oop comic strip which continues to be distributed in hundreds of newspapers in the hinterland of the USA is daring to attack the Bush Regime (albeit without using the name). Alley Oop has gone political and poor Dr. Wonmug is under arrest as a terrorist by a "future" police state!
When the American people, led by workers and anarchists, demanded the 8-hour day in 1886 -- leading to a general strike and finally to the bloody repression of the Hay Market massacre -- that demand for the 8-hour day is the outstanding example of what a transitional demand is! That movement, for nothing more than a transitional demand, continues to live on every May Day around the world, wherever workers' class consciousness lives and breathes.
Pray to whomever you want, or simply hope, that the gigantic lie that is 9-11, that is the "war" "on" "terrorism", that is Iraq, will crumble from within. If deceit and lies of this magnitude, on this deadly a scale can wreak their havoc without having to face justice, if our leaders can sit there and lie to our faces with the evil smirk of impugnity, if the corporate press will do all it can to perpetuate and defend the lies while ignoring and attacking the truth, if we as citizens meekly sit there and let them, while our children die in iraq or come home physically and mentally maimed because in our infinite weakness we thought we had no choice in the matter, then there really is no point to the nation called America, none at all, except to be a useless, warmongering blight.
Is that the America you know?
That's what my anarchist friend just told me. Here's why: we are calling for the impeachment of Bush even though we know that the U.S. congress is totally run by the Republicans -- except for a tiny bit of power still claimed by the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee and by the filibuster Democrats in the Senate. Sure, you could say that if an honest election could be held today, the American people would toss Dubya out on his ear. But a congressional minority ain't going to impeach the president! So what does that add up to?

Now's the chance to explain to some congresscritters how you feel about the need to bring the troops home, and the truth about what is happening in Iraq. Some congresscritters are evil, true...however some are good people whose biggest crime was trusting the president. They have been watching too much Corporate News and have no clue what is really happening. These are the people we need to reach...in a respectful manner. Many are probably incredibly embarrassed they have been lied to and have been going along with the entire sham so we need to be gentle with them.

The Incas and Bolivian workers who are protesting and driving from power their sell-out leaders have a clear understanding of how the ruling elite is attacking them. We Americans have been easily tricked by the ruling parties' sleight-of-hand use of "wedge" politics, into actually supporting our own destruction. ----------------

If you like peace the notion of silent violence may be uncomfortable - disturbing even. But the elements that make violence what it is; fear, pain, danger, and death are all contained within deprivation. The only difference perhaps is that one is a result of aggression and the other a result of ignorance.
Bush is likely to get us into more wars. Since critics are now aware that we were lied to about the reasons for the war on Iraq, he will have to start the next war so quickly that no debate is possible. Stratcom makes this possible.
just a reflection

There is new evidence implicating the Chownian Movement for Revelation omitted by Ruppert, Griffen, Barry Zwicker, etc. Among other things, the Movement's New York offices are reported to have been located on the 30th floor of World Trade Center 7, conveniently "collapsed" long after the towers. No one is talking about this.
Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country! The Shrub regime and the Supreme Court that appointed it have still not gotten around to eliminating the right of trial by jury. That means jurors still have the option of Jury Nullification. What is Jury Nullification? Only the best hope we all have right now of resisting from within the criminals who've hijacked the government.
For those who regularly attend the downtown peace marches- the ones beginning to resemble funeral processions- one thing is becoming clear: they don't work. Even the most ardent supporters of the 'peace movement' are becoming disillusioned with the realities they are facing, mainly the lack of progress. This is surprising to many; before the most recent Iraq war began, thousands in downtown Portland, and millions across the globe, joined together to voice their opposition to an illegal war- and nothing happened. Now the reality is setting in: the people came together, did what they were supposed to do, and were ignored by the hand that feeds them. How did this happen?
We were all taught that a M.L.K or Gandhi approach to activism was the most effective and least violent way to create change. It is time we reevaluate this perspective. First off, we must question why it is that these two in particular are taught to us in the schools, media, movies, and supported by the government as examples for us to follow. Were the techniques used by M.L.K and Gandhi really effective? And if so, how much change actually occurred?
on my way to bed tonight, i am thinking about a longer-than-usual bike ride i'll be taking in the morning for a visit to a naturopathic doctor. i find myself grateful that the longer ride does not entail, like a car trip would, concerns about whether there's enough gas in the tank. i'll check the tire pressure before i go, and see if the chains need lube, but that's about it. however, the thought occurs to me now, as it sometimes does, that bicycling instead of driving has still not freed me from consuming petroleum and that a future with much less of it that's more expensive will definitely affect me and other cyclists. how can we make this better?
A cover up of 911 by the U.S. government happened but there is no way to "forensically" prove that.

Before we all dismiss these folks as "corporate media whores" and refuse to speak with them we need to keep a few things in mind.

If we count the Kennedy Assasination, the impeachment of Richard Nixon was the second coup d'etat by the central bankers in a dozen years.
Jim Hougan, co-author "Silent Coup: The Removal of a President "(1992) believes Felt was badgered into playing this role by family and friends. According to Houghton, Felt wrote a book about his career in the FBI. In it, he goes out of the way to say that he met Woodward on a single occasion. This was in Felt's FBI office, and the upshot of it was that Felt told Woodward that he would not cooperate with him in his pursuit of "Watergate." Houghton says no one in or around the Nixon White House was in a position to know all of the things that Throat is alleged to have told Woodward. For example, Felt had no way of knowing about the 18-and-a-half minute gap in Rosemary Woods' tape. This strongly suggests that Throat was a composite. "What we have here, then, is the sad spectacle of an old man being manipulated," says Houghton. "The only person who meets [the Deep Throat] criterion, to my knowledge, is Robert Bennett. Now one of the most powerful men in the U.S. Senate, Bennett was President of the Robert R. Mullen Company in 1972-3. This was the CIA front for which Howard Hunt worked." Houghton obtained a memo under the Freedom of Information Act in which Bennett admits he is briefing Bob Woodward. "Woodward's gratefulness was manifest in the way he kept the CIA, in general, and the Robert R. Mullen Company, in particular, out of his stories."
