Self-styled "progressives" in Congress should stop being afraid to demand Bush's head. The Fitzgerald indictment is now about one man lying; it's about a cover-up of the president's and vice president's mad scheme to trick the country into a war in Iraq, and that calls for impeachment. A bill of impeachment should be introduced right away.
Sam Alito -- another white male conservative
Why did the Southern Oregon Campaign for the Siskiyous fail this summer, and what can we do to win?
There still breath some who have not heard of how the Clackamas County Sheriff, along with a Sandy Police Officer, murdered this injured, burned, naked, unarmend man. Please use the "search" bar.
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.
One reason for this is it's the one day of the year when everyone is accepted and fits in regardless of their appearence.
Is the hope for this cancer cure going to be swamped?
Message from Tre...
shameful is the fact that there are people who seem not to care that such things are taking place in our country
Dominion Resources of Richmond is a big tentacle

I don't get this Death to Israel, Death to America stuff.
Please, where-ever you buy your "organic" food, ask a manager or fill out a comment card on how they plan to deal with the new rules about labeling. This was an inside
job, it seems, and bigtime food corps are trying to hijack the organic marketplace. They've been at it for a while, but this is a big victory for them and a loss for those
looking to feed themselves well.
Your struggle is the teachers' struggle, not your football scholarship.
Does anyone else think that Nike is making a huge publicity blunder in pushing forward with its demand for a multi-million dollar investigation - money which will come out of the pockets of Beaverton citizens?
PORTLAND, Oct. 28—(al-Masakin) Millions of people across the world will take to the streets today, Jerusalem International Day—the last Friday in the month of Ramadan—in preparation for the one final onslaught against the Zionist entity for the liberation of Palestine and the holy city of Quds (Jerusalem). An onslaught, a war, a Holy war, and a jihad, a jihad that is coming as surely as night turns into day until the End of Days. An event as certain as the Holy Koran is the word of God.
This president who has claimed the right to lock American citizens up without charge and to hold them indefinitely without the right to see a lawyer or to go to contest their captivity in court is suddenly touting all those rights, now that his own people are in the dock.
Torture makes no moral or common sense. The U.S. House must pass McCain's anti-torture amendment, and Bush must leave his veto pen to gather more dust.
Leaked memo reveals extent of plan to shift public perception of its health coverage, further burden its workers and influence the future of national healthcare policy. Among the initiatives recommended by the memo are plans to switch employees' paid-time off for more generous discount cards, to switch from a tenured and full-time workforce to a part-time, high turnover workforce, to build in-store, privately run healthcare clinics intended to deter employees from visiting the hospital, to require physical activity from all positions making it impossible for older workers to find jobs, and to "become more engaged in the national healthcare debate, to position Wal-Mart as a leader in healthcare in general," in order to deflect criticism and influence national healthcare policy.
Economic class is one of the few subjects in American society that is forever taboo; the idea is in fact so forbidden that one never learns the basis for its censorship. Why is class such a dangerous idea? And why do most Americans have only a limited understanding of what is an established phenomena in every nation in the world? In spite of the intentional suppression of the class discussion, the issue found itself thrust upon the world public with the destructive outcome of hurricane Katrina. For the first time, many people witnessed a condition of poverty and suffering unbeknownst to them; the shock these visions created prompted people to ask questions about their reality that had never been raised, resulting in conclusions that heightened their awareness about issues that existed beforehand behind a veil of hidden forces. These new ideas consisted in recognizing relationships between race and poverty, class and survival, the protection of property over the life of the deprived—the grossest aspects of how we live, normally hidden from public view.
bush's longtime buddy, harriet miers, has withdrawn her supreme court nomination.
On a sidewalk in front of the White House, on Oct. 26, 2005, anti-war activists, Cindy Sheehan, John Bruhns and Juan M. Torres, Sr., and others from groups, like "Veterans for Peace," gathered at a Vigil to protest the conflict. The toll of U.S. military dead had just reached the grim 2,000 mark. Sheehan predicted the war will be another Vietnam, unless the people can bring it to an end.
This Latin woman-girl-child could as easily be from Asia, India, the Middle East or Africa. Born into her economic and sexual caste. No way out. At most a baby-machine, and not a very good one at that.
I keep waiting for someone to suggest that Judith Miller was indulged because she was white......So I wonder, why is Jayson Blair's story about race, and Miller's simply about a reporter run amok?
As I've mentioned frequently recently, we're organizing a protest this Saturday against the Minuteman Project in Sacramento. A few interesting developments have happened that I feel like sharing.
Awesome response to the 2000 death milestone
The mainstream media's choice of stories to run hides the stories that are important.
The following letter is by IWW Member "x337969". They are directly involved in the struggle described below and they have direct experience working with the International Socialist Organization members and chapter described in this letter.
I was listening to one of my favorite KBOO talk shows this morning, and was unable call in with my comments, so I am posting them here. It appears that many of the so-called dissenters against the BushCo pirates are incapable of recognizing their grievous mistake in supporting John Kerry, and prefer to continue their incongruent nonsensical criticism of Ralph Nader instead.
Excellent article on the loss of what is everyone's and noone's to own - the commons...

Rosa Parks died today, leaving a powerful legacy behind.
Well, as we stood, dumbfounded by the announcement by the DA in crack of my ass county, we all began to wonder, I am sure, just WTF has been accomplished here? Why were we out here?
Dear Samilla and Rashid,
Justice was not served on September 8, when your son was murdered by the cops in Sandy, and today, when the "system" had a chance to make some ammends, again it let you and your son down.
Even the Times is saying she has lied and deceived in her reporting on Iraq and al Qaeda. Once that happens, it's time to look back at her earlier work, including the 2001 articles that won her a Pulitzer.
This is an old article I wrote and never published until now about how Maxxam and Hurwitz is the an evil company . . . It was my experimental writing cloister trying to copy the Gonzo style of the late Hunter S. Thompson . . .
the themes still ring true tud
The UAW complaint was filed in the name of two retired Michigan auto workers, whom the union asked the judge to accept as representatives in a class action on behalf of half a million retired autoworkers and their families.
Now that the U.S. coercion in the form of the Bolton recess appointment as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. has produced the U.N. Special Investigation Commission Report on the assassination of a former prime minister of Lebanon, it is time to ask the obvious question.
I lost my friend
US Senate rejects increase in minimum wage
Miller did things a journalist should never do. She shilled for a White House disinformation campaign that was promoting an invasion of Iraq, accepted control from the Pentagon, and deceptively misidentified her sources. Yet she hasn't been fired by her official employer, the NY Times. Was Times senior management in on the game?
By failing to distinguish between assets that can be *produced* and assets that can only be *acquired*, modern economics laid the ideological foundation for unemployment, poverty, inequality, and the looming global depression.
Laura Bu$h is calling on people to get involved in the Katrina relief efforts in a TV ad... but she does not blink.
Due to an article someone says was written in the corporate rag today, there is danger that despite all of our efforts, Fouad's alleged activities after the accident may be allowed to somehow marginalize him, and thus, somehow, justify(?) the killing of an obviously unarmed, badly injured, bleeding, naked (because his freakin clothes were burned from his body) man.
Went to the vigil in Boregon City yesterday, to stand and support the family of Fouad Kaady, the unarmed, injured, and did I mention-NAKED man that a Clackamas County Deputy and a Sandy Cop chose to terminate because he failed to obey their commands, or to calm down after tazering.

Some thoughts on downtown Portland
My reply to a blogpost on the prostitute/porn "culture" I picked this up from the newstrolls site, thanks SD.
The trial of Saddam Hussein is the headline on all the news stations. Yet most of the things they are saying about Saddam, actually apply to GWBush, and many to his dad, George Bush, Sr., as well. When does Bush go on trial for HIS war crimes? When do the Iraqi people get to finally testify about the atrocities and cruel deaths GWBush caused on their land?
Just about everyday, the news is bad! The economy is going to hell, the Iraqi War continues unabated and the energy crisis is shifting into high gear. One direct result: The Middle Class is disappearing. No Middle Class, no democracy! And yet, our people seem to be sleepwalking through it all. Maybe, Carl Jung was right when he said, "The people can't stand too much reality."
This is the first chapter of a forth coming ebook with a partial listing of its table of contents. Those interested in this material are welcome to contact me.
Oregon City is so strapped for cash that we should take up a collection for the poor dears.

If some of its key publications are any indicator, much of the American left seems unable to face the reality that the election of 2004 was stolen. So in all likelihood, unless something radical is done, 2008 will be too.
The donation services industry has emerged as the most promising and positive new industry in decades - holding unique potential for creating prosperity and restoring hope among those at the lower end of our economy.
This vital, emerging industry will end if Congress chooses to adopt the recommendation of the Joint Commission on Taxation Reform to cap deductions for homeowner non-cash donations at $500.
In October, Senators Gordon Smith and Ron Wyden were requested to sponsor legislation requiring detailed documentation above $500, thereby preserving and fostering the most important new industry in decades that specifically benefits those at the lower end of our economy. In terms of both economic force, and positive social impact, preserving the donation services industry is crucial.
Steve Duin wrote an interesting piece in the Big O, but completely worthless. The title of his article is "An institution incapable of intervention?" and is in regards to Rep. Kelley Wirth, D-Corvallis.
It seems Steve is asking why didn't her colleagues do a better job of intervention.
