Rumors are swelling that Spike Lee and Eddie Murphy have snuck into New Orleans with a camera crew to document what is really happening in the historic flooded city. One source even went on to say that Eddie Murphy boasted about talking to Geraldo Rivera without him even knowing it!
On 09/12/05, a rally was held in Washington, D.C., in solidarity with the 5,500 Canadian Media Guild (CMG) members, who have been locked out of their jobs. Linda Foley, President of the TNG-CWA; Larry Cohen of the CWA; and John Sweeney, President of the AFL-CIO, all blasted the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) for their deplorable tactics. They then presented letters of support for the CMG to an Embassy of Canada official.
"Doctors working in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans killed critically ill patients rather than leaving them to die in agony as they evacuated hospitals,"
Things that make you go hmmmm....very interesting.
Good arguments in opposition to conservative attempts to aboloish the Estate Tax.
Does anyone have any ideas, legal advice or??? I have some neighbors who are baiting and trapping my roommates cats and bringing them in to the animal shelter...they are now threatening to drop off the cats on the freeway if they catch them, and we are missing a cat. These are well-cared for and loved cats with collars and licenses.
No new refineries have been built in the United States for some 30 years. But the absence of these refineries implicitly concedes the broader case made by those in the "Peak Oil" camp: after all, why invest billions if the underlying resource to be refined is rapidly depleting in any event?
The media have treated Judge Roberts' Senate hearing platitudes about restraint and having an open mind as if they were divine wisdom?as if, indeed, they meant something.
It is September 11th, 2001 over and over and over again in Iraq, as American forces hypocritically continue to level the country in an attempt to crush the war of liberation in Iraq.
A hate crime that has not been solved.
Wassup with blackout & 'alqaeda'?
Where are progressive policy ideas when we need them?
Hurricane katrina Natural disaster made worse through lack of Bush Federal funding to levees. A hurricane became a flood and more lives were lost. Poverty meant the hard working, minimum wage low paid workers and vulnerable people of New Orleans could not afford to save their lives by leaving town.
One arrest at the final circus protest yesterday.

"Although white, middle-class Americans seem to be in denial over what has taken place in New Orleans; many black Americans seem to fully grasp its meaning."
On 09/11/05, demonstrators in Baltimore City turned out to protest rabid militarism and the Iraqi War. If this action also leads political hack, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-MD), to speak out against the Iraqi War and to stop funding it, it will be a huge success! Her priority has been to give tens of billions of taxpayers' money to Israel, while the Chesapeake Bay is dying from "dead zones," and the levees at N.O. were in desperate need of repairs.
It seems to me that we have reached that place in our endeavors in our so-called civilization where a great many grand contradictions have lined up and are in full view of the global public.
Needs no further explanation.
The terrible tragedy of New Orleans is very moving. Here are some thoughts with links to related artcles. 4 photos are attached.
Wal-Mart is working to open stores in several locations around Portland in the next few years. This article discusses the probable effects if thier efforts succeed.
The doctrine of 'sin' was first introduced by ancient Jewish priests, who required an ideological justification for the practice of genocide. However this formative development in the ideology of imperialism was imperfect, in that the doctrine of sin leaves open the possibility of social criticism. The doctrine of 'orgiinal sin', which was the novelty contributed by Christian priests eliminates this problem, and resulted in the creation of the perfect imperialist doctrine.
And so with the fall of the caldwell apts the peoples are left in a
s.o.l. situation to deal the loss by themselves. The power crew skip to
my loot and the community centre in the square feels no need to anwser
for the pat on the back they just gave the slumlord of fernwood for his
negelctand disrespect of our hood citizens --because after all bad
things happen to bad people, ri?
Congress is temporarily softening the bankruptcy bill and postponing Medicaid cuts, afraid to look mean to Katrina survivors, but when the waters have subsided, they'll go back to screwing the poor as usual.
For those of us who have rejected our ancestor's outdated concept of a spirit world, there is still a very real feeling of spirituality. How can this be? The fact is that all humans are capable of deep, emotional feelings of awe and joy when we reflect on the mere existence of the universe.
title says it all...good read
Does anyone know who won?
Events leading to Arafats death raise questions.
IRS increases mileage reimbursement to 0.485/mile. It doesn't
cost that much to run a reasonable car.

Bush lied under oath to cover for his cronie Waltrip, head of the largest funeral corporation in the U.S. investigated and sued for systematically digging up and desecrating dead bodies to make repeat or multiple use of the same burial locations. Now FEMA wants the media to take no photos of the dead bodies to respect their dignity? Hardly. More likely to cover up the number of the dead and the manner in which they died. New Orleans being locked down will make it easy to destroy any evidence of wrongdoing by local, state and federal officials and law enforcement.
I arrived 10 min. before showtime to help leaflet. Where were the protesters?
In a surprise outpouring of compassion, George Walker Bush Sr donates half his accumulated wealth to the victims of hurricane Katrina.
The first waves of genuine fascism have now been officially ushered in, folks. The Mexican military is now beginning to patrol U.S. streets.
If you don't have a gun, it is time to buy one. If you have a gun for sporting or self defense purposes, but don't have enough ammo to participate in underground rebellion, it is time to stockpile ammo. Stock pile water and food and batteries.
From self-proclaimed "War President" to more apt "Disaster President"
J. D. Crouch, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy.
why are all Republicans such shameful, greedy, vermin?
what should be said
I am concerned that the victimization of the evacuees may be just beginning.
History parallels the present.
Theology has evolved throughout history as a tool for military recruitment, and as the justification for the existence of both the military and of the expansionist imperialist empires which are created and then supported by the military. Thus the collapse of religion threatens both the future of imperialistic capitalism but also the survival of the military industrial complex.
We are all set up to open our city and offer some nice temporary housing.. The beds have literally been made.
I dont buy the idea that "folks want to stay on the gulf coast"
Deficiencies of Our Current Federal System

The costs for the American public, in higher energy costs, higher food bills, economic recession and a burst housing bubble, are the just deserts of decades of self-centered voting habits.

The disaster that struck New Orleans and the southern Gulf Coast has given rise to the largest military mobilization in modern history on US soil. Nearly 65,000 US military personnel are now deployed in disaster area, transforming the devastated port city into a war zone.
Squads of combat-equipped troops toting assault rifles and columns of humvees with gunners at the ready crisscross its flooded streets. Soldiers with bayonets mounted have begun house-to-house canvassing of the city to enforce the complete removal of its civilian population.
Passerby tells it like it should be.
Tragedy in high school gymnasium.
Barbara Bush makes a statement which makes me puke. Read on and you'll see why.
slaverevolt gives historical analysis on new orleans
An organization capable of overthrowing the system of imperialist
rule cannot be built on a foundation of sand. Only principled,
transparent and long-term collaboration between serious activists
(1) organize a decisive break from the
confinement of liberal-imperialist politics,
(2) mobilize the masses in their millions and
(3) chart the couse forward to a world without
imperialist war or capitalist exploitation
My feeble attempt to have our corrupt government representative answer the atrocity in New Orleans, maybe if enough of us question them , like the drops of rain here in Oregon we can make a change . If you feel so encouraged please demand action/answers from them, follows my letter to Wyden
Why the cycone fence + barb wire at Washington High School?
I am trying to write about how to have a revolution in the USA.
IS IMC PROTLAND REAL ?
I have long claimed that no one ever wrote about this anywhere - anytime - or not anything that would work or made any sense. (See bottom for the two real examples that prove me wrong).
