Health Care...Who Cares?
Who cares about health care?
There's all this talk about the "health care crisis" and the uninsured and costs rising.
Why do we care?
And what the hell can we do about it anyway?

Corporate Media says Foxworth Must Go? Then I Support Him.
Apparently, the bOregonian has called for Foxworth's ouster over allegations that he acted inappropriately with a female subordinate. KOIN and KATU have implied as much as well. I was not sure how I felt about all this, because I do not agree with any sexist behavior, yet I have found Foxworth's softer manner to be refreshing after the (gag) Kroeker years. I was also very squeamish about the release of such personal conversations that I really think should have remained private. I think my mind is now made up in favor of the Chief.

No yellow ribbons from this ex-marine
We can and should support troops-to-be, but do so before they become troops. We should post a warning sign, and disclaimer, in all recruiting stations. Prospective enlistees should be told that their new employer will not be the Department of Defense, but the Department of War; and that their service will not be in the defense of freedom and democracy, but in the building of an empire for America's powerful elite. And that their countrymen, for all the yellow ribbons and pseudo-patriotic talk, will ultimately blame them for the added terrorism they instigate with their wars. Just like there is truth in lending, we should demand truth in recruitment.

Another Surreal Day in the Age of Bush
Dr. Death The baseball season opened on April 3, 2006. President George W. Bush was in Cincinnati and tossed out the "ceremonial" pitch. Jay Leno said it went off to the "far right." Meanwhile, nine brave U.S. troops were killed in Iraq on that day; one for every inning Bush was at the game. Zacarias Moussaoui, a suspected mental case, faces the death penalty for 9/11. Also, corruption-tainted Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) fears a hammering from the justice system.

Berlin 9-11 Report Back
The Reichstag, which was restored in 1999, was burned in 1933. They still ... PREFACE:
When asked if I would continue to post photo essays here on indymedia during my extended travels through Europe, I replied that I doubted that I would have anything to post. However, on my first night in Berlin (my first stop) the contrast between the way Americans and Germans look at their recent past startled me so that I knew that I had to produce this photo essay. Some readers (on sites other than indymedia) may get upset by my insistence on presenting my images in a political or historical context. However, for me, all photography that is not for personal use is about political struggle or it's about surrender. I don't see this as imposing a context on helpless images, but being honest about images and their use and abuse in our society. Don't fear that I will continue to plague you with "reports back" from the rest of Europe. I expect to indulge a personal fascination with beauty that is unlikely, in the end, to find a context that will make it of use to anyone else. I am, after all, on vacation.

I failed to make the text concise enough to fit in the captions. Therefore, the captions below the photos serve as links to the full captions which appear below in the article. The photo essay will also appear on my own photo site along with my past indy photo essays where it might be easier to follow.

On 9/11: Was the Asbestos-Laced World Trade Center "Disposable"?
Millions in the U.S. and worldwide now know there is evidence that 9/11 was an "inside job"; "false-flag," state-sponsored terrorism to provide a pretext for a premeditated war. But in exposing this evidence, the 9/11 Truth effort is also shedding light on a significant story-within-the-story: that the World Trade Center (WTC) was obsolete and asbestos-laced, and that its destruction on 9/11 may, for certain interests in the U.S., have been both desirable and profitable--independent of any interest in war.

The Only Hope For the World
I see only one way out; a metamorphic leap of faith, an about face in the way we think, a decision to let go of everything that we, as a nation, once held dear, an understanding that the world will surely end unless we recognize the fact that we have no choice but to embrace our enemy as our brother, the one, without whom, we will never find peace, a brother-in-arms, enchained from head to toe, with whom we will either drown, or, together, might be allowed to live for yet another day....

Where Capital is Not God - France Shows the Way
Back in the 1990s, when I was part of a union organizing effort at the University of Vermont, one of the assumptions expressed by the school's administration was the inevitability of the university's continuing corporatization. This assumption was also shared by many of the workers that we were attempting to organize. Furthermore, the assumption was not one specific to the university. Indeed, it was actually usually expressed as part of a larger reality that assumed that the world was going to continue down a path that would result in the ultimate supremacy of the world's largest corporations and banks running everything. Most of these businesses were naturally US- owned, even if they had their offices overseas.

The danger of religious faith is that it allows otherwise normal human beings to reap the fruits of madness and consider them holy. Because each new generation of children is taught that religious propositions need not be justified in the way that all others must, civilization is still besieged by the armies of the preposterous. We are, even now, killing ourselves over ancient literature. Who would have thought something so tragically absurd could be possible?

Amy Goodman is really starting to bug me
With all the growing noise surrounding the 9/11 Truth movement, even on CNN of all places, with Charlie Sheen and Alex Jones loudly proclaiming their opinions on what took place that day, the only story about 9/11 that Amy Goodman on her daily show DemocracyNow! decided to cover was the one expressing the new official mainstream story about the "5th hijacker". Blacked out from her program is what has been taking place among the 9/11 Truth movement in recent weeks. Why is Amy doing this? It's almost like she is right in lock-step with what the corporate media is spouting. Again, why? However the last 2 sentences (below) almost tries to imply that perhaps, maybe, possibly the story was bungled. Yet still, nothing about the recent statements of Charlie Sheen or Alex Jones. Not even a passing mention of them.

Please don't throw this article in the compost bin, this needs to be discussed.
