A concidse and effective sermon to open the eyes of the blindf to the the reality of the world. Not a definitive argument of everything, but a good first step
Does this person sound familiar?
The Bush regime's latest exposed treason is the regime's domestic espionage against the American people. The story broke in Indy Media first and was then picked up by the Los Angeles Times and then later by other mainstream news outlets.
President Bush eliminated the need for warrants for NSA bugging jobs, but when the warrants are as easy to get as they are in the FISA courts, the only reason he'd do that is to keep the taps completely secret. And why would he want to do that?
What they have accomplished in 05
What we choose to do about how we use energy resources will have consequences, some of them unforeseen.
Why, the question is being asked, does a high profile American defend people and causes that are not only anti-Establishment, but anti-American as well?
In the small city of San Anselmo, Republicans denied an attorney the right to post messages that accurately described Bush and his fascist treason and crimes against humanity on a billboard mounted on the building owned by the attorney. The fascist regime's cronies settled with the attorney -- by surrendering completely.
New York Transit workers take a step in the right direction but must broaden their demands and link with wider sections of the working class.
Coming from another country, I'm always outraged at the attacks on the workers movement, and wonder when US workers will rediscover their radical roots.
TWU is being fined $1 million a day in NYC is another outrageous attack. It's time to fight back!

All this talk about the U.S. government spying on Americans, secret CIA prisons, informants, etc., has me thinking people need to know more about spying. Spying is actually a licensed industry. I did private detective work in the late 1990's-2000, and it was an eye opening experience. I learned if you feel you are being followed, SLOW DOWN. It is almost impossible to follow a car going noticeably slow without raising suspicion...
Bono, in Portland tonight with U2 at the Rose Garden, has been honored, along with Bill and Melinda Gates, as Time Magazine's Person Of The Year.

Below is the House resolution and a list of 95 cosponsors. Oregon Reps. Blumenauer and Wu have signed on. Reps. Hooley, DeFazio and Walden have not. We need to be pressuring them to become cosponsors. We have reached a national tipping point on Iraq, the momentum is now ours, but we need to get everyone on the same page and keep it moving. If you live in Hooley, DeFazio or Walden's district, please take a minute to contact them about this. See http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/ for contact info.
People think you can buy kids off at Christmas with presents. I recently saw a Christmas episode of "Bewitched" where the people on Samantha's street were taking in the kids at a local orphanage for Christmas eve and day, as if this was so great for these kids. Do you know how freaking HUMILITATING this type of thing is for the kids involved? People with money take poor kids out for a day, then ship them back to the cold institutions with a new toy, whoopee...
This administration is attempting to establish totalitarian control, and has proved that it is not to be trusted with the Constitution. Impeachable offenses are being committed.

Listening to a public radio station in Seattle, the local weather forecast mentions weather "inversion," where cold air meets warmer air, causing the ground to be smothered in fog. This according to the radio announcement will create "stale" air of unhealthy quality, in lower elevations. But we are reassured that this will only last a few days, until the blanket of fog has uplifted from the region. With the pollution trapped a midst an urban corridor along the lower plains between the Olympics and the Cascades, were in for a heavy dose of our own ooze of toxins.
Katrina was not a natural disaster; it was and still is a social disaster. Katrina and its aftermath is the market at work for you.
Instead let it be heard, that millions of kids actually receive presents from hard working parents, siblings, and other family members, and that Santa Clause is just a capitalistic mythical ploy for all to run out to mall. May we stop the white lie, that a bunch of enslaved elves under the command of a jolly, plump omnipotent man, fashioned together their children's toy somewhere in the North Pole. Let the true story be known, that the toy was manufactured in Taiwan probably under harsh labor conditions, and that their mother and father worked their asses off around the holidays, so that it could be opened up under a tree, on Christmas morning.
On Dec. 14, 2005, the Green Party candidate for the U.S. Senate in MD, Kevin Zeese, ripped into President Bush calling his Annapolis speech, "filled with lies!" He also demanded the U.S. get out of Iraq and admit it's a "failed policy." He labeled the Military-Industrial Complex, the "greatest threat to our country." Zeese also wants a "Single Payer" health care system, a "share the wealth" economy and a fair and balanced Middle East policy.

More nauseous spin from the Bush cabal.
"With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it." Senator James Inhofe
From humble beginnings as Tulsa mayor and a small business man, Senator James Inhofe has morphed into one of the most dangerous neocons and right wing extremists of our time. On the front lines of Bush's war against civil liberties, peace, and the environment, Inhofe is leading the drive to plunge the planet into chaos and destruction for the glory and profits of the military megamachines and transnational corporations. Behind the flattering self-portrait Inhofe paints in his autobiography lies a profoundly ignorant, corrupt demagogue and power-mongering shill for Bush, the war against Iraq, and global corporate plunder. Online news magazine, Slate, wrote that Inhofe is "widely considered one of the dumbest members of Congress," but should have added he is also one of the most dangerous.

This is a government that believes it knows what is best. It doesn't, but even if it did, we citizens, and our representatives in Congress, and the media we depend on, allow this kind of secret government to function at our peril.

While at SCRAP a few days ago I got word that someone had graffitied "honkeys go home" on the building. Of course this was no where to be found when I heard about it because it had already been taken care of, covered up. I guess so as not to disturb or make anyone feel guilty about something they just can't do anything about.
The next day I'm at the no WTO protest and people are carrying signs and saying chants equating globalization with colonialization, quite ready and interested in talking more about the issue. But it seems that whenever gentrification in Portland comes up, people get quiet if not completely silent. And I wonder why is it so much easier for white people to focus on the WTO? Fighting the WTO and globalization can only be more challenging than fighting gentrification in our own town. And racism is just as significant a factor in global capitalist oppression as it is in the local kind. And we white people are just as much participants, however reluctant or resistant, in the broad processes of globalization as with gentrification.
Curt Weldon just announced on Lou Dobbs' show that the Pentagon has agreed to let the Able Danger officers testify at a Congressional Hearing.
What do you worship more this time of the year? The birth of a man by the name of Jesus born some 2000 years ago or the birth and domination of capitalism born just a few hundred years in the past?
Along the way to Consumer-mas if we have to support the idea of Santa, support the belief that Santa is female as well as male; that Santa is black as well as white; that Santa comes from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Are military recruiters being fair to prospective recruits, people who live in the U.S.A. and around the world or themselves?
The federal minimum wage has not been increased since 1997.
During the same period of time the U.S. Congress has opposed a minimum wage increase, they have voted themselves seven pay raises totaling $28,000.
The bottom line for me and I hope for you, let the employer make less and the worker more! If it weren't for the worker there would be no employer.
Rumsfeld Buries Admission of Missing 2+ Trillion Dollars in 9/10/01 Press Conference
On September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to disclose that over $2,000,000,000,000 in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for. Rumsfeld stated: "According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." 1

This is a 450 article expressing my strong (very strong) views on the criminal assholes who seem to get away with horrible atrocities - including the destruction of the beautiful country of Iraq.
Arguments to substantiate reasons for putting GW Bush on trial for war crimes
Early last month, the US Senate quietly moved the United States one step closer to final approval of a three-billion dollar subsidy package aimed squarely at the aging television sets of an American public allegedly hungry for high-resolution spectacle and ever more compelling escapism.
The breaking story about the U.S. military's planting of prepackaged stories in foreign media - a "scoop" attributed to the L.A.. Times - has overlooked one critical factor: the Independent Media Center of Greater Binghamton, and not the L.A. Times, was the first media outlet across the globe to report on this propaganda-production endeavor, the brainchild of the U.S. Special Operations Command.

Check out Erik Sten's rather arrogant and vacant official filing for another term. The yuppie teen from Stanford who fell ass-backward into City Council with no professional experience, only to lose over $40 million of taxpayer money, seems to think he has no competition.
