The Black Eyed Peas are a pop music group with a hit song out right now called "My Hump." The song, written by a black male, has a white woman with little clothing on, singing, "My hump, my hump, my lady lumps"...Well, my lady lumps are FISTS. The men in the group perform FULLY CLOTHED, asexually, as if hermetically sealed, in long sleeved shirts and long pants, while the woman with bare legs and bare mid-drift, writhes on the floor like their private prostitute and groupie...
On Defects in our System of Elections
* La edición # 45 de El Libertario marca los 10 años de publicación ininterrumpida de un medio impreso que ha querido expresar la voluntad, la pasión y la razón por hacer del anarquismo opción válida de cambio radical para América Latina en general y Venezuela en particular.
The new pedestrian right of way bill can be utilized very effectively to shut down the city on important holidays such as buy nothing day, or any protest day. Use your imagination.
The Los Angeled Times fired long-time progressive journalist Robert Scheer, claiming it wasn't ideology based because he spoke out against this fascist regime's treason and crimes against humanity.

Caught in a lie when it initially denied using phosphorus bombs in the assault on Fallujah, the Pentagon had to concede it used the weapons. It fell back on the claim that it only used the incendiary defices on militants, not civilians--but then, in that assault, the Pentagon trapped all males in the city, considering them all insurgents.
One way or the other.
The following two articles, one from environmental groups, another from
the coastal First Nations, call on the BC Liberal government to honor
their commitment and legislate protection for the Great Bear Rainforest.

why did woodward suddenly figure into the plame leak immediately AFTER the indictment against Libby?
There is absolutely NO equivalent humiliation factor for men like the existance of can-can lines on stages for women performers. Women who simply dress in lingerie and act sexually available on stage are calling themselves "feminist" performers nowadays! FACT: The U.S. vaudeville hub has produced MANY male child solo acts and NO young girl solo acts over the last 2 decades. The many male solo acts get full stage space for one person, but women need to team up, in underwear...
This privatizing scheme would lock huge amounts of public land into corporate hands and imperil national parks, monuments and other treasures
On October 3, 2005, Fort Clatsop was destroyed by a fire. Investigators have concluded that the fire was accidental and the result of a small fire left burning on one of the hearths of the barracks.
While people today are driving up to the fort and handing money to rangers to help rebuild the fort, Portland Anti-Imperialist say "let it burn." Celebrating the bicentennial is along the same lines as celebrating Columbus Day. It would be honoring the destruction of the indigenous culture and the strong arm of American imperialism.
This just came out on the Rainbow Family listserve, and if anyone reading this doesn't know what the Rainbow Family is, you can go to www.welcomehome.org and find out a little about this group that has been working together to form intentional community in the forest for almost 35 years... Doing this in the forest prepares us to deal with immediate food and medical needs... so some folks did just that, in Waveland, and others are still doing it in New Orleans, where volunteers and supplies ARE still needed, very much so...

Take a step back with me. Into the past of the human species. Keep going. Further into the past. Keep going until you can see the entirety of human history laid out before you. Now let go your biases. Let go your beliefs. Let go your religion, your politics, your color, your nationality and every other orientation you may have.
Ex-Ambassador Joe Wilson took the gloves off in a lecture that he gave on Nov. 14, 2005, in Baltimore. He ripped into the "Brownshirts" in the Bush-Cheney Gang; hack columnist, Bob Novak; and the indicted and "cowardly" White House operative, Irv "Scooter" Libby. Wilson speculated that the "outing" of his wife as a CIA agent was done in an attempt to make others "afraid" to speak out about how the country was dragged into the Iraqi war.

If you, like me, thought that the Radical Cheerleaders were supposed to be honorable anti-capitalist activists, read this and think again.
With all due respect to horses everywhere.
Americans have been, and remain, all to willing to trade away a heritage of freedom for a false promise of security being peddled by charlatans in Congress and the White House.
Family get-togethers nowadays can comprise many different diets. Often vegetarians and vegans present special challenges to family members who are not familiar with those dietary preferences. This article is for those family members. Feel free to forward it to your family! With just a little forethought, healthy dietary preferences are not hard to accommodate. With just a little preparation, you can set the tone to be one of inclusion this holiday season.
Nothing is worse than the collective dread all welfare mothers start feeling around now, with Christmas looming. Their young children are told at school, on TV, in stores, etc., that Santa rewards good children with lavish gifts. And the better you are, the bigger the gifts you will receive. Welfare moms cannot explain that Santa cannot "afford" the gifts their kids are asking for on their Christmas lists and it kills many a mom's soul every Christmas season.
Why did the Sandy School Board cancel a meeting which might have produced an end to the strike?
In a rather thinly veiled effort, religious zealots have attempted to bring religion into the schools once more. It has a new title but it's more of the same. Now it is called intelligent design rather than creationism and there is a strong effort by the religious right to make it into the public schools of the country. They have already succeeded in getting the State Board of Education in Kansas to include it in the standards for 2007.
A case of the pot calling the kettle black.
Bloodlust motivated the attack.
Today is Vets Day. To fight in a disreputable war does not do a man honor , no
matter how many flags wave or drums beat . And for the man who joined to
do good, I can only say he got chumped. If he went to war because of poverty then he went to better himself at someone else's expense, maybe someone else's life. And for those of us who were drafted, I say we were sent to war as slaves.
Hey, I thought we were going to hear some more from the guys who killed Fouad Kaady.
Although to us the current international scene, is a world gone mad, it is all happening in THE PLAN, of a few greedy and power hunger men.
News of value are routinely buried by Corporate and State media under the pile of garbage from which we are fed lies and propaganda on a daily basis.
I just watched a review of the Wal-Mart movie by Ebert & Roeper...
Bush not a liar.......yeah right, like Tricky Dick
was not a crook.
As long as mankind has tread this earth, there are always differences of opinion, and there is no lack of them today. It usually is tied to where your interests lie, and not necessarily on what is right or wrong. Nowhere is this more apparent that in the workings of government and the politics it inspires. Weve included a few in this volume of the more important ones. Of course, that too is a matter of opinion.
Seven years ago, in Iowa, the heart of corn and soybean country, Kathleen Delate became America's first organic agriculture extension specialist. Since then, she's been working closely with local farmers to increase and improve organic production and marketing. From that time organic acreage has increased six-fold in the state, from 20,000 acres in 1996 to 120,000 acres in 2004.This is the story of her approach, the changes that she has witnessed, and the lessons we can learn from them.
That nice young officer beauty is at it again!
It's important to note the international dimension of Wyden's criminal actions. By voting to eliminate Habeas Corpus, Wyden is soliciting the violation of not just the US Constitution, but international legal guarantees enforced by treaties the US is bound by.
We must visit Aruba as soon and as often as possible to smack down the state of Alabama.
Don't let him off the hook
As Vermont considers seccession from an increasingly fascist U.S., Cascadia(Oregon and Washington) should follow suit and follow the positive example being set far to the South-in Venezuela.
Acting with virtually no debate or warning, the US Senate on Thursday passed, in the form of an amendment to a military budget bill, a far-reaching measure denying so-called "enemy combatants" any right to challenge their detention in US courts.
While this reactionary piece of legislation is aimed in the first instance at the more than 500 men and boys who have been imprisoned without charges, facing torture and abuse, at the Pentagon's concentration camp in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, it constitutes a frontal assault on basic democratic rights and the constitutional form of government in the United States itself.
Not likely Many Portland IndyMediers Will Be Able To Attend This Meeting But It Will Be A Groundshaking Piece Of History That Will Likely Impact You Up There In Portland As Well.
lately bushy smells alot more to the average human crap
people cant change anything with pacivism. Its time to take an agressive stand, fight fire with fire.
In a recent posting, we heard from "I was there" who claimed to be one of the cops who shot and killed Fouad Kaady: http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2005/11/328137.shtml
This got me to thinking: What if we had a truly informative exchange with cops (reformed or otherwise) who feel the need to purge their guilt?
Slaughter in Serene: the Columbine Coal Strike Reader tells the history of Colorado working folk taking a stand against economic injustice
Most people have no idea that the common-denominator math of all the world's currencies forms an endless loop that generates debt faster than we can ever generate the value to pay for it. Those who scoff at this analysis have simply failed to do the math. Consequently, this civilization is verifiably based on purposeful and institutionalized deception, coercion, and exploitation. The time is long overdue to change the human equation and end the root causes of most injustice and suffering.
what is gentrification on alberta? do clowns have anything to do with it?
Senator Jim Elliott from the red state of Montana is no fan of cyclists, so why is he concerned about what's going on with Critical Mass in in NYC ? And why he thinks every citizen should be too. Find out what got this cowboy mad enough to write an article about it.
Mr. Wyden voted in the Senate to approve an unconstitutional law that purports to strip prisoners of Habeas Corpus rights recently upheld by the Supreme Court. The move amounts to an unconstitutional attempted power grab by the legislative on behalf of the executive branch to wrest power from judges to decide basic constitutional questions.
had a dream...superimposed on life it takes the shape of this
Do you have any idea how many "lesbian cheerleader porn sites" there are? I gave up flipping the Google pages. Not one of those women is a real cheerleader; none of them are out-of-the-closet lesbians making a serious declaration. There are no "Goddammit, I'm a real dyke and a genuine cheerleader" forums. No esoteric little support groups. Nada.

Had French society allowed for nonviolent social movements to form and flourish, violence would have seemed politically inefficient. Because immigrants and the working-class are so effectively shut out of French society, they have no other way to effect change than to violently demand it.
The imposition of a state of emergency by the French government of President Jacques Chirac and Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin gives the minister of the interior Nicolas Sarkozy the right to impose police-state conditions wherever he sees fit.
Many commentators have noted the bitter irony contained in the fact that the legal framework for the state of emergency, the law of April 3, 1955, was enacted as part of French imperialism's attempt to crush the legitimate aspirations of the Algerian people for national liberation from colonial rule. The reactivation of this law, 50 years later in metropolitan France, is an insult to the children and grandchildren and relatives of those exploited, brutalised, tortured and killed by the colonial regime during Algeria's war of national liberation. Many now live in France's council estates, ghettos of poverty, where the youth revolt and its repression have taken place.
Anybody thinking a public inquest could help the public learn about why and how Fouad Kaady died by police shooting just got shot at by Clackamas County D.A. John S. Foote.
In Europe and Latin America, Resistance Spreads Like Fire!
We are near to the final battles - those on the streets and those in our minds. Weimar Germany or Spain in 1937? - brave idealists fighting against the whole world or its apathy and indifference. The right, center,Left, far left, moderate Imans -and anarchists? and the rich who control the world outside of France - none have respect/ advice for the millions of French youth who are fighting since no one else does...
