Clamor Magazine erases rapes, promotes racism
The recent liberal trend, now promoted in Clamor Magazine, of calling rape victims liars who weren't really raped but can't admit to really wanting all that sex is contested.

Agresiones contraCuba
Los incesantes ataques contra Cuba de los ?ltimos meses, tanto los de la derecha como los de la seudoizquierda, insisten en la necesidad de ?democratizar? la isla (del mismo modo, y por los mismos motivos, que los Reyes Cat?licos insist?an en cristianizar Am?rica). En Cuba no hay democracia, dicen unos y otros. En Cuba, dicen, no hay libertad de expresi?n. En Cuba hay corrupci?n, prostituci?n, ma- chismo, racismo, presos pol?ticos... Pues claro, es la ?nica r?plica posible. Y adem?s hay tabaquismo, alcoholismo, cafeinoman?a, carnivorismo, filatelia y cual- quier otro vicio que podamos imaginar.

Armitage is the Leaker, but not the Story: Black Ops and War Lies
The corporate media have focused on the outing of Plame but are ignoring the real story: why was the administration so focused and intent upon destroying Plame and her ambassador husband? The answer leads to a dark crime of lies and black ops aimed at promoting a pointless war in Iraq at all costs.

Once You’ve Been Homeless, You Can Never Go Back
Not a day passes, that I do not thank the gods for my housing. I have been homeless so many times this lifetime, that I do not take housing for granted, *at all.* When you realize homelessness can happen to you, it looks very different than some impersonal street scene. Because homelessness will forever be a wolf howling at my door, I am always too close to being a homeless woman, which is why I cry, most probably. I cry for me, in them. And them, in me.

Remembering Katrina and the Need for Climate Justice
Rev. Lennox Yearwood Nearly one year after Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, the Bush-Cheney Gang has done little, on the issue of global warming, to prevent another devastating disaster. At a rally, on Aug. 26, 2006, at the main headquarters of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adm. (NOAA), Mike Tidwell, the author of "The Ravaging Tide," charged that unless something is done now about the warming of our global atmosphere, more Katrinas are on their way.

the Troop Question
As the shaky ceasefire between Lebanon and Israel lumbers on, the European governments expected to 'enforce the peace' have been stuttering and stalling in the face of actual commitment. It was France who took the initiative originally, who as head of UNISFL (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon), promised 3000 troops. After analyzing the situation further, an about-face occurred, and the troop level was reduced to 400 non-combatant personal. Italy saw opportunity and declared itself the replacement, promising 2000 troops; France, not to be outdone, reasserted leadership responsibilities, but with 2000 troops this time; Italy was then, thanks to its charitableness, awarded France's old job as head of UNISFL. After all this, the seesawing attitude of the rest of Europe continues. These governments are demanding more definitive 'rules of engagement'; they're curious about the prospects of actual fighting, and are rightfully scared of being viewed as a foreign occupier in Hezbollahland. Bush is intent on seeing that his backfired war-effort is partially salvaged, and has insisted that Europe "hurry up" with military aide, since the U.S. has none to spare. It may be prudent to examine why Europe— who views Israel and the U.S. with apt distrust— is both eager and terrified to help them pursue their interests. Note: a working assumption will be that 'humanitarian reasons' is a sophistic answer, meant to lure citizens into obedience.

Democracy Now, 9/11 and Structural Engineers

Democracy Now!, an alternative news site in the US (Wikipedia's Democracy Now! page) has been challenged to a debate on 9/11 since it's host and co-founder, Amy Goodman said in an interview with David Ray Griffin in 2004:

AMY GOODMAN: Can you name an expert you have relied on, for example on the issue of the world trade center towers going down, expert in structural engineering who has said it is impossible for the explanation to be the planes hit, and the fires caused the towers to go down?

AMY GOODMAN: Name just one. Name just one structural engineering expert who said it is not feasible that the planes caused the towers to go down.

And this same view has been expressed here:

"There is not one structural engineer in the whole world that thinks the towers couldn't have collapsed because of the impact of the planes, alongside the fires causing the steel trusses to lose their structural integrity (not melt that is a red herring, nobody makes that claim)."

Now a Structural Engineer, Charles N. Pegelow, has come out to question the official story, read on for a open letter, Dear Democracy Now!

Debido a este inhumano trato donde se viola el decoro de un pueblo, muchos cubanos nos hemos indignado y levantado para orar y ayunar en ruego al Dios de la Biblia y exigiendo al gobierno las firmas de los pactos internacionales de derechos humanos (el pacto internacional de los derechos civiles y políticos y el otro de los derechos económicos, sociales y culturales) rubricado por la comunidad internacional en las Naciones Unidas.

3 Washington State Supreme Court Judges
On September 19, 2006, Washington State will hold a primary election. There are nine Supreme Court positions and three of them are on the ballot.

"If a judicial candidate receives more than 50% of the primary election votes for a contested position, that candidate will appear on the November ballot without opposition; the primary will effectively determine the final outcome. Because many judicial elections involve only two candidates, this means that many races will be finally determined in the September 19 primary election, and voters who do not vote for judges in the primary election will have no voice in selecting those judges."
