The timing of the "Terrorist Attacks" in London is curious indeed.

this site is downright hysterical.

When our own country shows utter contempt and disregard for the massive slaughter of civilians by its military, we have to expect the same thing to happen to us. It's not right, but it's predictable. -------------
The US government and the FBI have displayed an almost fanatical interest in "chasing elves" as one described hunting ELF. Meanwhile, there seems to be little interest in solving a number of arsons of activist's homes in West Virginia where Massey Coal goons are suspected. In addition, it is well know they spend more time on ELF than Al Quaeda investigations.
This is the reality, only those suffering from serious denial or delusion could claim otherwise.
I'm glad GW Bush and everybody in DC is dedicated to waging the war on terror! Let's expand it, because...
To close off the final day of the G8 summit, a special report I was saving for the end, and perhaps take my cue from the media to spread some wild rumours and maybe scare some people. Behind the scenes at Live 8 and the G8.
Like probably the majority of folks who read and post comments here, I am homeless...
"Ok, you jerks, ya wanna hear a story from Portland? Well I got a tale that will turn your knuckles white and curdle yer blood like... well, like curdled blood (whatever the hell that is). The Alberta clown house is situated in NE Portland. It's the home base and breeding ground for Portland's own internationally renowned (we've been to New Mexico and our videos are big in Bogotá, Columbia) clownabilly rock band, named after me, Pepto Dizmal.
"[Legislators] issues of survival rest in your hands. You must allow the Oregon Health Plan to continue," -- Don Jarvi, Aids Action Project NW
What a nut that savage. Creating class warfare between the peasantry with seeds of fear and hate.
Here's the face of a primate researcher.
Recently, the news columns were full of a supposed dispute between the Americans and the British about foreign aid relief to Africa. If the news reports are to be believed, the British wish to push the Americans further, to provide more debt relief for countries staggering under their economic burdens.
It is truly amazing to me that the people we elect to guide our foreign policy have little or no knowledge of history. I would not expect our President to have read any history. Even the most ardent supporters of George Bush are coming to the realization that the man is an uneducated simpleton. He certainly has not read any Iraqi history.
Lou Dobbs is a hatemonger supreme
Osama Bin Laden strikes again...
The same AP wire reporter has changed her tune all of a sudden. First Israel was forwarned, and then it was't warned until "after the first blast". Hmmm....
We sure do here allot about the tin-foil hat wearers on the internet. So called conservatives are no exception.
Once again, Israel warned ahead of time
Short statement on the bombs in London today:
I've just finished a painting with accompanying article about a story that is one of the most powerful modern myths to emerge out of the war in Iraq.
isn't it funny how just when the heat was turning up on Bush and Carl Rove is one step from being charged with being the source of the leak...
Sixty years after the end of the Second World War, the European Union finds itself in a deep political crisis. The collapse of the EU finance summit in Brussels in June and the subsequent invective by government heads on all sides was more than just the routine quarrelling that has occurred throughout the history of the EU and its predecessor organisations. The entire project of uniting Europe on a capitalist basis has reached a dead end from which there is no escape.
As word reels in from London about the horrific blasts in the subway there, I am not sure how to feel. My mate expresses horror that innocent civilians have been targeted. I point out that a poor man's war is no more devastating than a rich man's war, that there are no innocents in London or America if you're living through Iraq. That it's the consumption habits of firstworlders like us that leads to bombs raining down on people "over there." I believe that. But somehow, even to me, those words are just not adequate to capture all the complexity in this.
Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received warnings of possible attacks
Almost a year has passed, and no mention is made of this stunning case.
In these troubled times we need to slow down and deal our inner world if the outer world is ever going to get any better.
The world capitalist economy is being held up like Atlas by just two forces: US household spending and Chinese manufacturing production. If either or both of these should die, then world capitalism will slip into slump.
US household spending growth is probably the most important of these two factors. What is driving this 4-5% annual growth in spending? It's not rising wage rates. Indeed, for the average American household, income from work is falling. No, what's been keeping Americans spending has been partly tax cuts, as Bush cuts back on social spending programmes to make handouts, mainly to the rich through cuts in big business taxes, but also to middle-class Americans in personal tax rebates.

Scotland police are trying to prohibit the peaceful assembly thanks largely to troublemakers and their own overreaction.
From each according to his ability, to each according to their wants.
what if all preconcieved notions of what the possibilities are can be set aside and the most extreme possibilities are examined.
what if the 911 attack was something other than 16 unknown troublemakers accurately piercing our Defense?
what if the reason Democrats, Progressives, Greens etc can't get a good partyline together is because we're to busy defending ourselves from those who definatly have power right now and are going just bonkers with it.
What if most of us want a new game? Oil Dynastys, and Entrenched strategic Politicos make a classic 50's movie... Rumsfeld has been climbing the ranks for a while, shaking alot of grimy hands. What political ideologies did he study?
Who are these Bush people and how did they get so powerful?
We need to be pressuring our state senators and reps to vote against these cuts to the Oregon Health Plan, etc. Contact them at

Think I'm kidding.............NO I'm not. The creeps at 184.108.40.206 are sending out little packets like trojons.
Yeah, you: we give you our love, our time and our money for all your movies and merchandise. Now what are you going to do about the mess we're in?
On the eve of the G-8 meeting this week, the major capitalist powers have been given a warning that despite the appearance of healthy growth, the problems of the global economy are increasing. The warning comes in the 75th annual report of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) issued last week. According to the BIS, known as the central bankers' bank, growing international debt and imbalances in the world economy have created the conditions for economic and financial crises.
In spite of all the media hype we are being bombarded with, the Gleneagles summit meeting will not go down in history as the day world poverty ended. World musicians and celebrities came together over the weekend in concerts organised on all the continents to raise awareness about world poverty and to put pressure on politicians to tackle the twin crimes of debt and poverty.
Oh yes, more independence from more idiocy
"Hey, punk, you can't burn the flag!" Yep, that's right. The flag doesn't burn anymore.
Many Americans, still taking pride in the memorable image of "Gift of USA" flag logos on bags of grain being tossed to starving Africans, find it difficult to accept the role of international pariah. But the truth is that many people are as scared of us as they were of Germany and Japan in 1939.

What happened to Green Anarchy?
if this be treason, make the most of it
i visited the Bear II timber sale in early autumn, so when i heard that it had been felled, i decided that i needed to see how much was left. here are my observations:
We are in a time of great change, transformation and opportunity.
for those of you still paying attention, there's something happening here and what it is is all too clear!! americans, WAKE UP while you still can!
Comet will be intercepted by a NASA Space Craft, explosion will be visable to naked eye, or maybe not, or how bout they have never bombed a comet before.
Who will solve these war crimes?
Ben Stein is a Neocon, author and comedic actor. He was also an ex-speech writing hack for Richard Nixon. He recently wrote an online piece in which he praised the U.S. troops as society's "real stars." What he left out of his spiel, however, was that he is a War Hawk, who helped to put those same troops in harm's way based on a pack of lies. Stein has also claimed that the horrific abuse of inmates at Abu Ghraib was only "frat-boy mistreatment!"
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators today rejected the fact that 2/3 of the world's population live on the poverty line. Early in the morning people came from all over Britain and the world to assemble on the Meadows in Edinburgh. This has been the biggest ever demonstration in Scotland since the Hunger Marches of the 1930s.
Tualatin Valley Skinheads just a racist scam!
Malcolm Gladwell's book "The Tipping Point," 2002, reminds me of some of the ideas from the complexity class I took recently. Societies behave like other complex systems. Little changes in social systems can have large effects.
A look at how government gets corrupt, and what "real" patriots need to do to stop it. Perfect for the national holiday!
I received this email. It did not seem already to be on portland.indymedia so I passed it on here. It is a le3gitimate piece of local writing and perspective.
What I have found on mainstream media sites in the comments section is that there is much criticism of Live 8 being expressed by the public, at least as is revealed by this particular forum for public expression, but what shocks me is the way the criticism is focused on what I will call the theme of 'the white man's burden.'
