Karen Minnis thought Mult Co Commissioners were arrogant when they didn't hold public debate on Gay Marriage, now she kills such debate in the Oregon House and no one cares.
the famous "4 Bombers" photo is a fake. Look at the LEFT ARM of the guy in the white hat. The bar of the railing is on the WRONG SIDE of his arm. Plus pixels of head mix with pixels of the upper bar. Like I said before, Nothing is what it seems in this situation. Nothing!!!!

Traitors in government need to be arrested
If the police won't arrest their "buddies"
then the military is the second obvious choice.
Military folks also took an oath to defend the Constitution. It's high time they did.
Why does Bush's younger brother get a free pass at influence peddling on his White House Connections, even when it involves a company that did the security for the World Trade Center in September, 2001, while anyone remotely linked to the Clinton's was hounded by both the media and government investigators for the flimsiest of reasons? ----------------
A terrible crime, the killing of thousands of Americans ocurred on September 11,2001. The investigation of this crime has been blocked by the Bush Adminmistration. Why haven't the voices of hundreds of critics been heard?
Isn't this obsstruction of Justice a grounds for impeachment of an administration that continually lies to the American people? The Downing Street memo and the Rove leak are the tip of an iceberg!
I tried using the search engine on falwell's site and found that it sure likes to filter out news articles concerning george walker bush that are critical.
As the imperialist occupation of Iraq drags endlessly on, the situation in the United States itself is one of a continuing jobless economic "recovery" while the Republican-controlled government loots the treasury for the benefit of the wealthiest Americans. Coming into office with a budget surplus in the trillions of dollars, the Bush Administration has successfully emptied the world's largest coffers - and then some. All this in less than five years.
Titanic sums of money - the taxes paid in mostly by the working class - have been spent by the Administration primarily on two things - the continuing slaughter in Iraq and the further enrichment of the top 10 percent of Americans. Millions of working people in the United States continue to worry about whether or not they will have a job two months from now or even next week. And how does the 'compassionate conservative' in the White House soothe the nation's anxiety? By handing out billions of dollars to the modern-day robber barons of Capital.
In yet another attempt to insert its foot even further into its mouth, The Oregonian featured a article linking gay men, meth, and the spread of HIV on the front page of its Sunday edition.
see yah later
Polarizing and unreasonable arguments on both sides obscure the ethical issues and obstruct social progress.
lies and more lies

nothing hit nothing on 911.
it was all controlled demolition.
I think that we havn't been doing any effect activism for the past two years. what the fuck is going on?
Whatever happened to due process--arrest and trial?

This is a copy of the soon to be published article for 411mania.com, a website attempting to be mainstream so it is written for the mainstream more so than the indy media. It is an editorial review of the godfather of neo con's Leo Strauss. Please give me as much feedback as you can, thank you
I am exhausted and thus taking the weekend off as a revolutionary columnist, but there are still a few things I wanted to get off my chest, just on the off chance that maybe Indymedia might be knocked off line before Monday so as tired as I am today I thought I would still get a few things written down
Baltimore's patriots defeated the invading British forces in the War of 1812-1814, at Fort McHenry. Yesterday, President Bush, ranted at the Dundalk Marine Terminal, across the harbor from the fort, urging the renewal of the draconian Patriot Act. Bush is our "Liar-in-Chief" and he's ignorant of history. What's next? A surveillance device implanted in everyone's head?

A morning screed, rant, get it off my chest before I explode kind of essay
Items in the news that are disagreable.
Weekly thoughts geared towards a deeper understanding of this strange world we all live in...
Doesn't take a genius to figure out why social

Note market values and property taxes.
One after another the scandals emerge revealing Wal-Mart's ruthless campaign against workers' rights.
.... now that the vice presidential Chief of Staff has been pulled into the CIA outing scandal. A real image of planning and time management regarding the neocon coveting of mideast and Central Asian oil. Not to mention the power and control that comes along with that effort to control the area
Time to support our troops by bringing them home...
Dante would have reserved a special place in Hades for the general who oversaw the escalation of America's invasion of Vietnam and such war crimes as the Phoenix mass assassination program, the "Pacification" program of mass terror against peasants, and the deliberate destruction of farm and forest with Agent Orange defoliant. -------------

BOYCOTT NEWS CORP!!!!
Fox News is buying Myspace.com for $580 million. Does this surprise me? No. As much as I think Myspace and Friendster can be ridiculous because people focus on "friend collecting", It's a good way to spread information to your friends. Fox News buying them out is absurd. We need to make sure we boycott News Corp. and tell our friends and family to do the same. Also tell Tom who owns myspace.com to not sell out. http://www.myspace.com/tom
Below is a list of companies that News Corp. owns. Raise your fists and say NO MORE FOX NEWS!!! No More News Corp.!!!!! Here is a little image that is being passed around on myspace and people are encouraged to put it up on their webpages. Play with it and pass it along.
Late in the session Representatives Dalto, Greenlick, Senators Bates and Westlund proposed HB 3500, a referral to voters to increase tobacco taxes by 60 cents to provide health care for all children and increase funding for OHP-Standard. The lofty and laudable goals of the referral would be to:

It's bad enough that the slippery Neocons got the U.S. involved in the Iraqi War, now those scoundrels want us to attack Iran! The unindicted war criminal, Henry Kissinger, suggested that we take Iran down, if certain conditions were fulfilled. Thanks to the compelling "Downing St. Memos," and the splendid work of Think Tanks, like the IRmep, it has become clearer that the conniving Neocons have used the U.S. as a chump!
Your daily dose of comic relief
Nobody could have predicted 1967 in 1966. It seemed to come out of the clear blue sky. But it didn't. It had been germinating for a long, long time. And there is no reason to think that if we couldn't see it coming in 1966 that we would see it coming now.
conservatives want women to be private property, liberals want women to be public propoerty, feminists don't want women to be property at all
The truth is no longer pragmatic.
The biggest difference between a Capitalist Society and a Free Market one is the ability of corporations to lobby the government to hedge their respective competition out of business. This is the very foundation of a Krytocracy, a government ruled by Judges who are appointed rather than elected by the people. And as such, legislature toward ousting ones competition is a cottage industry under the Bush Regime, which is in itself a "Mobocracy", exhibiting the tendencies of a Republic without having to be accountable to the people.
We've seen fuzzy photos of someone who looks like Bin Laden since but...
Will King George get brave and take the next reckless step?
Every revolution requires a sustained offensive, and so I guess I will just keep at it, by writing a column from time to time (with the initials BKH just to let any one know who might be interested in some comedy relief from time to time - right now I am not feeling to funny because of the Africa famine, but given how that is going to be the ruin of some people, even that could become funny given time)
There really is nothing more amusing than members of the mainstream U.S. press getting on their high horses about the state of journalism in other countries. A classic case in point is the article written by Gary Marx of the Chicago Tribune on the new Latin American satellite channel, Telesur.
come on, get it straight!
Forget all the scare tactics about not having enough of a nest egg, about Social Security going bust. We Baby Boomers already know the answer for living well in our old age. We just need to get it together again. --------------
I was riding home from work the other day and was waiting at an intersection for the light to turn from red to green when I heard a woman's voice directed at me from inside the car to my left. "You really should be wearing a helmet, you know." I looked at her, nodded and looked away, hoping that would be the end of it. It wasn't. She went on for the durration of the red light to lecture me on the pros of bike helmets, asking me if i had one, telling me i should be wearing it etc... What bothers me about this situation is not the woman's desire

Violent repression of democracy has a new face in Haiti: the "Blue Helmets" of the United Nations multi-nation "stabilization" force in Haiti which goes by the acronym MINUSTAH. The UN mission took over "stabilization" responsibilities in June 2004 from the US-led forces which were deployed to Haiti since before the coup which overthrew President Jean Bertrand Aristide on February 29, 2004. Their operations since last year have acted to support the unconstitutional coup government of Prime Minister Gerard Latortue, principally by supporting the increasingly repressive Haitian National Police in their efforts to root out, imprison, murder and terrify the leadership and support base of the widely-popular political party Fanmi Lavalas.
the thought police need to give it a rest
For many progressives and liberals, the question becomes down to one word; Why? Why can't there be equal justice, why can't there be an adequate minimum wage law. Why can't we have a government that acts truly for the people and by the people. The truth I believe is simple; progressives need to go to Washington D.C and for so long progressives really didn't. The article that I am posting is from my column at 411mania.com. I do not get paid for my writings, but since this article has to deal with the Heritage foundation, I figured I would repost it here. I feel that the Heritage foundation is a chief tributary in the river of conservative misinformation. This is my article, the common thread; thanks for your attention.
How much will they be able to get away with, that is the question? Who is going to scare who?
