Open letter to City of Sandy, Chief of Police:
I traverse this landscape goggling at the sights in wonder and nausea. This part of America has become something worse than a former Soviet backwater, something sadder. In these places, we have managed to overcome even the hard-won fruits of enterprise achieved by the independent people who preceded those alive now. Everything they wrested from the land has been thrown away, or allowed to rot in place -- so that more attention can be paid to televised entertainments.
And anyhow, what kind of a guy would shoot a friend, and then pack him off to the hospital and not go hang around the waiting room to see how he's doing, instead of going home and having dinner and a drink?
How misdirection, disinformation, limited hangouts and red herrings are used, COINTELPRO-style, to contain and control an emerging mass movement.

Daniel Glick, author of Powder Burn a book on the Vail fire, is close friends with Charlie Brennan, the Rocky Mountain News Reporter who spearheaded that paper's witchhunt against Churchill. Both men have contributed to the media's Green Scare hysteria. Their white male confluence of interest is called out in a Try-Works' reporter's letter to Glick.

Who knew that Cheney has had a cardiac ICU in tow all the time at taxpayer expense?
Recently, 8,600 U.S. companies have been taken over by foreign ownership, while 20 percent of all U.S. assets are held by foreigners. The politicians were silent. Now, a United Arab Emirates' enterprise will soon be operating stevedoring companies in six U.S. ports, including Baltimore's. Its Mayor, Martin O'Malley, almost broke a blood vessel complaining. However, he didn't say a word while the preceding British outfit was doing the work. Go figure!
The mass media's real "job," unbeknownst to the general public, is and has always been to protect the status quo, that is, to protect the interests of the governing classes. What currently threatens their legitimacy (and that of the ruling classes) is not that they have not been doing their job in the last few years, but rather that the public has begun to realize that the real function of the mass media (and the government) is to work against the public interest. This growing realization is a terrifying prospect for the ruling classes.
excerpt from entire article posted below by political prisoner Jeff Free Luers:
"The ability to alter the course of climate change lies in the hands of regular people. It is not an easy task by any means. Nevertheless, it is a task that humanity must begin to take; with or without our leaders... A free society is obligated to correct the wrongs of its government. If it cannot, then it is not free. If a people refuse to right the wrongs of their government, their endorsements make them equally culpable, and ultimately, they too will carry the burden of responsibility."
I am proposing a system somewhat analogous to Instant Runoff Voting (IRV), but simpler and more adaptable. Imagine no political parties or primaries, no "spoiler" effect, voting for the candidate you prefer rather than the biggest challenger to the one you most oppose, a larger pool of diverse candidates, greater opportunities for alternative candidates to gain a footing and perhaps win an election.

Cheney fired a 28-gauge shotgun, a small-bore weapon commonly used for hunting birds, when he blasted his victum. Can we prove he was closer than the 30 yards claimed in the offical report?

1984 has come to pass, both chronologically and in the Orwellian sense. Americans are "liberators" in Iraq. Opponents of this "peace initiative" are "doubleplusungood". Unchecked by the judiciary, the NSA electronically trolls for perpetrators of "crimethink". Pundits and the "liberal media" (owned by a handful of monolithic corporations despised by people with the values which many define as liberal) have become the Ministry of Truth for the Party...
This is patriotism, being engaged, standing up the rights of yourself and your neighbors. It's setting aside our differences and working toward a common goal of respect for each others veiws and right to be. Though your beliefs may be different Christianity has a long track record of breaking the law when the laws are in conflict with our beliefs. Christianity is not about the get rich quick schemes being spun by T.V. evanglist and it is not about starving the poor that the wealthy might gain more wealth. At it core Christianity is about community caring for each other.

When I think of America, the picture in my mind is not the Statue of Liberty or the flag, but the Loompanics Unlimited catalog. Loompanics is the apotheosis - a word I've always craved the opportunity to use - of free speech, the most perfect example of everything that's right with our beloved country. As Marilyn epitomizes movie stardom, as Willie epitomizes country music -in the same way, Loompanics is the ideal example of what America is all about. Or was meant to be.

Watching the 700 Club always turns my stomach, but I do it occasionally to hear what the other side is saying. You can't get much more wacked-out than the 700 Club. Now ABC is broadcasting it on it's satelite station ABC Family. Ugh!

Were the cartoons just innocent caricatures, or were they calculated provocations that not-so-subtly advocated violence against a billion people?

It oftentimes boggles the mind to try and understand the ease with which the Establishment can manipulate the American citizenry into another warmongering escapade..yet it is easy to comprehend this phenomenon, for we live inside the United States of Amnesia, a country where all semblance of the yesterday becomes but a haze of blatant forgetfulness and convenient whitewash.

THE SECOND COMING by William Butler Yeats, 1920 (Caps added for 'mere anarchy')
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
MERE ANARCHY is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

I sent this letter to the Eugene Register-Guard and the Eugene Weekly. I suggest you do something similar. We need to raise this as an issue. The only way Congress has to stop the war is to cut off funding for it, but the Oregon delegation keeps voting for more money for the war. We need to tell them that their votes are unacceptable, and that if they keep doing it they will pay a political price in the next election.

Today we are writing to you in hopes that you, the Green Anarchy Collective, will take a good look at the theoretical direction of Green Anarchy magazine and how it relates to action. We also would like you to step out of the Anarchist frame of reference to see why you are marginalizing yourselves into an abstract reality.

Cheney misfired and bagged a GOP donor instead of a quail. And there are some big questions about the official story about this vice presidential shooting incident.
Well would you look at this. A hunting trip with a buddy winds up in a little accident.
Maybe if Mr. Cheney had not got SIX DEFERMENTS during the time he should have served his country in the military he would have learned to handle a weapon safely
I will name Richard Cheney as the prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11 and will establish that, not only was he a planner in the attacks, but also that on the day of the attacks he was running a completely separate Command, Control and Communications system

Statement from the Chicano Mexicano Prison Project.
Feb. 10, 2006
Thursday the 9th of February, 3 anarchist comrades were arrested in Barcelona, Spain. The arrests started at 8 in the morning when one of our comrades was coming out of work, he was arrested by balaclava wearing Mossos d'esquadra (a police force belonging to the local government of Catalonia). Later on as another comrade was leaving his home in the center of the city he was also arrested. Later in the afternoon the third to be arrested was released without charges. For the moment the other two are being charged with arson and public disorder. Apparently the charges are related to attacks on the company CIRE , a public enterprise who's business it is to make a profit from prison labor in the Catalonian prison system, and a sabotage on a Banc Sabadell, a local bank that has been prosecuting a activist in for breaking windows in a demonstration. On Saturday the 11th our comrades finally had a bail hearing ,where they were told that they would have to wait for trail in prison. This decision will be appealed. As our comrades were leaving the court to be transferred to prison the police attacked the demonstration of about 50 of their supporters outside. This in the scuffle that followed one of the demonstrators was beaten to point of requiring stitches on his face. The police also dissolved the demonstration on Sunday in front of the prison where our comrades are being held. In Barcelona there was also a demonstration with about 150 people that took place in the center of the city the day of the arrests. These arrests are part of a continuing attack on the anarchist movement in Barcelona, it's the same repression that has imprisoned since September 2003 four other anarchist comrades without trial. International solidarity is needed now more that ever
