Waiting for the Palestinian Gandhi
During a recent lecture at the University of Oregon, Yuval Rabin, son of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, said "We can't wait 300 to 400 decades waiting for the Palestinian Gandhi to emerge".

But have Palestinians really forsaken nonviolence? Have commentators around the world really forgotten the popular nonviolent uprising they celebrated during the first Intifada? And what of the Israeli occupation of Palestine? Why is occupation not seen as a form of violence?

Is Hell Too Good for the Iraqi Warmongers? (Satire)
The Inferno Do you wonder if the Iraqi warmongers will ever be punished for their evildoings? Well, thanks to one of Italy's greatest sons, Dante Alighieri, there is a way to find out. He wrote "The Divine Comedy," the first book of which is about his descent into Hell. It's called, "The Inferno." With a little imagination, Dante was sent forward to the year 2065. He reprised his trip to the Inferno for us and forwarded an account of what he had witnessed.

Congress Lives in a Bubble, Bloggers Know More
God Help Us All! The Problem is not the Bush Believers- there aren't that many left. The Problem is not with the mainstream democrats that "don't have the time" to get informed. The Problem is with those of US that think MoveOn, PDA, UFPJ and ANSWER have a plan. The Problem is with those of US that Know yet continue waiting for the politicians to do something. If they haven't acted by now, they never will. It just came out that the torture was approved by top officials, yet this is not the top story, hell it's not any story- it seems NPR and the rest of the corporate media got the memo to Orwellize it. Every single blogger that knows about this- you are more qualified to be a US Representative than No Plan Pelosi or whoever your critter is. Think about it- is $160,000 a year and a chance to go down in the history books worth a shot? Think about it - the masses are with us!

PAUL WELLSTONE part 3
PAUL WELLSTONE: AN AMERICAN ASSASSINATION - JIM FETZER ... When Sen. Paul Wellstone's plane crashed on a drizzly morning on October 25, 2002, just 60 miles north of Prof. James Fetzer in Duluth, Minnesota, it would have been a bit much to expect the professor of philosophy -- already pissed off about the JFK assassination and cover up, and a host of other scams and crimes -- to sit quietly and accept the official story that Wellstone's pilots just forgot to pay attention as they neared the airstrip, letting their plane and the Senator crash dive into the ground. At Princeton, Fetzer's thesis was on the logical structure of explanations of human behavior.

Memory Against Forgetting– An Open Letter on the "Green Scare"
When I think of these folks, I think of people who put everything on the line for their beliefs. I see them courageously blockading forest roads in the middle of nowhere from crazed loggers and cops; hanging huge banners from daunting heights off bridges and office buildings; hiking miles into a forest and setting up tree-sits in the darkness, rain and snow; disrupting bear, cougar, whale, wolf and shark hunts, on sea and land and frozen lakes, all the way up and down the Pacific coast and interior; dodging rubber bullets and wading through clouds of tear gas to shut down the WTO in Seattle; splattering eco-villains with creme pies; locking their bodies down to every kind of object in order to stop every kind of destructive activity; typing away at a computer or photocopying fliers in the neon glow of Kinko's while everyone else is asleep; driving through the night to make it to the next basecamp or demo; and I see them laughing and singing around a campfire under lush old-growth forest canopies and star-swept desert skies.

“Best Director” Oscar for Ports Brouhaha Production
Ports Brouhaha Productions The Iraqi War has been raging for over three years with hardly a peep out of the Congress and/or the Media. Now, a deal which would permit an Arab-owned company to manage stevedore operations in six U.S. ports has sent both into a feeding frenzy. Why? The U.S. Coast Guard is in charge of security at the ports, not the stevedoring outfit. Whoever is behind this ports brouhaha affair deserves an Oscar nomination for - "best director!"

The Government's "case" against Rod Coronado - a legal memo
The federal government has been chomping at the bit to put Rod Coronado back in prison since the moment he got out, and his indictment in San Diego for an exercise of pure speech is a flimsy pretext to do just that. People may recall that when Coronado was convicted in Tucson, Arizona on December 13, 2005 for trying to disrupt a macabre, officially-planned hunt of an individual mountain lion which essentially had just scowled at someone on a path and run away, Assistant U.S. Attorney Wallace Kleindienst was quoted as saying: Coronado is "a danger to the community... I know he wasn't tried here for being a violent anarchist. This trial wasn't about Rod Coronado being a terrorist, but he is one." This is revealing of the Government's real motive here - to say nothing of its propensity for ascribing guilt by association.

There's a marshland along the river where a wide, shallow pond reaches far beyond its edges most of the year to fill the surrounding valley with a fertile halo of cattails, sedges, marsh grasses, and dogwoods. In spite of the cold, it should be alive this time of the year with restless muskrats, beaver, and migrating water birds. So I went there yesterday to see them.

Portland Election Monitors to El Salvador
With less than three weeks to go before the municipal and legislative elections of 2006 the atmosphere in El Salvador is one of both tension and enthusiasm for the arrival of voting day. Since the massive outpouring of both morning and support for FMLN around Schafik's funeral, many Salvadorans believe the polls that put the FMLN slightly ahead of ARENA actually underestimate the support people will give the FMLN on voting day. PCASC/CISPES delegates will be in El Salvador to ensure a fair vote and to denounce any attempt by the right-wing to repress free elections.
