Of course, I'm speaking in response to the Letters (Not) to the Editor in the latest evacuation of that poo-poo tunnel called the Portland Mercury.

There was no "system" in 1850. This was designed.

July 13, 2006

The blood in Gaza and Lebanon is on George Bush's hands. The bombs,
shells and missiles now pounding Lebanese and Palestinian cities and
villages, wiping out entire families and leaving hundreds of thousands
without power or water, are made in the U.S. So are the planes and

The Second American Revolution :The Sleeping Giant
No one who works yeast into a lump of dough, kneads that lump of dough forever, but the lump is left to rise in a warm place. With that in mind I thought I would stop spamming, which is kneading the lump, and just let it rise. But before I do I thought it good to clearly explain the right revolutionary strategy as I see it, just in case there is someone who might still be wondering just what should be done.

(And let's not forget that Sudan has both oil and uranium.)

Advice?(for another poster)
Several years ago I was part of many Community responses to sexual assaults. I also came out with my own story - or part of it, anyhow. I told people about how one person had raped me, but not about the community pattern of silence about my partners abusive behavior, and scorn for me for putting up with it, that preceded my rape. And, after I told that story, I kept silent about many others.

Phil Berrigan The Rev. Billy Graham was in Baltimore recently doing his religious revival thing. For years, he was a crony of warmongering presidents, like Richard M. Nixon. Rev. Graham's preaching never attracted me. However, the life work of the late Phil Berrigan, an ex-Josephite priest, had a profound influence on me, and others. Berrigan spoke the truth to power. He relentlessly took on the War Party and spent 11 of his 79 years in prison for his protest actions.

Critical Information to Understanding Zionism, the Iraq War, and Current US Politics
Made available for FREE for personal reading at the Historical Review Press is a short book by Israeli Professor Israel Shahak. With the Forward written by Gore Vidal, the book covers the history of Jewish persecution, both received and meted to others, as a preface for understanding modern Zionism. The author, who survived Nazi incarceration at Belsen Concentration Camp, documents the role of some of the more radical and racist elements of the contemporary Zionist movement and how it influences policy in Israel, the Middle East, and America.

What If Israel Had Never Been Created?
President Abbas with Rabbi Weiss What would the world look like, if in 1948, the state of Israel hadn't been created? Unfortunately, President Harry S. Truman, under the "influence of the Zionists," gave his endorsement to that violence-inspiring project. Since that time, life for the Palestinans has become a hell-on-earth under the heel of Israel's brutal Death-Mayhem-&-Occupation Machine. John Lennon said, "Imagine there's no countries." Okay, let's imagine: There is no Israel!
