Bush Crys Wolf Again
As the Bush administration continues to sink in the quicksand of public disapproval, Bush pulls a new rabbit out of his hat, attempting to
regain voter support on November 7.

Much has happened since we handed over our voice:
It is Pat's birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after. It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks with signing the papers. How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice until we got out.

Environmental Scientists Battle Despair and Depression Over End Times
It seems to me that any discussion of anything other than the environment is not just an act of denial but perhaps even an act of indirect suicidal behavior like smoking. there is little doubt in the scientific community that the environmental situation is hopeless as they don't see much hope for change. they call for the media to scream and scare the hell out of people because we should be fucking scared shitless.

Skellig Michael: The Denial of History as State Policy
The Skelligs Rocks, 8 miles off the coast of Co. Kerry, constitute one of only two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ireland. However, the Office of Public Works (OPW) is currently engaged in reconstruction work there. On the South Peak of Skellig Michael, an altar, dating probably to the ninth century, has been destroyed by unsupervised workmen. In addition, there has been extensive rebuilding carried out on the main complex, which has led to considerable damage to the original structures. The work has proceeded without an Environmental Impact Assessment; while the Department of the Environment and OPW have argued that, because the Skelligs are a national monument (thus covered by the National Monuments Act 2004) and because the current work is part of an ongoing programme of conservation dating back to the 1980's, neither an EIA nor planning permission is necessary.

Last minute thoughts on Oregon's elections and ballot measures
I've done a lot of thinking about the ballot measures and some of the races in this election and I wanted to share some of those thoughts. A lot of people have voted by now but some people are still trying to figure out what the results of some of the ballot measures could be. I can't claim to be right in my analysis but hopefully it will provide some food for thought.

Pharmaceutical Commercials - Off the Airwaves!
Heavy television and radio advertising is expensive. Since our government now allows pharmaceutical companies to develop, purchase and air expensive commercials, guess who they pass the cost on to? And that's something we don't need when medications in the USA are already too expensive for many to afford.

I have never been one to engage in obsessive behavior, but this case haunts me, perhaps even more than all of the other murders by cop that have occurred in our area in recent years.

Oaxaca, Brad Will, and Why We Care: That "Racism" piece
It has been just over a week since the killing began in earnest down in Oaxaca. One of the first to die was IMC journalist Brad Will. Many people here in Cascadia knew Brad, and felt his loss personally. But now, it seems, they are being asked to hide their pain, on the grounds that it might be perceived as unseemly. I did not know him, but I too am a media activist, and so he was my comrade. And so yes, I care. But now, I'm being asked why.

Millions of American Christians have had enough of watching our faith being hijacked and warped for partisan political gain, and watching as "Christian" leaders annihilate Christ's message of love, compassion and peacemaking to replace it with a message of fear, arrogance, greed and warmongering. On November 7th, we'll reject the tactics of fear, hatred and deceit, and we'll vote Christ's values: love, compassion, gentleness, caring (including caring for gays and for women's medical privacy!), humility and peacemaking.

TRULY Independent 9/11 Research
Before you decide whether or not to believe a word I say, it might do well to consider that in the last five years, I have had some forty or so email accounts hacked to uselessness as well as half a dozen mailing lists. I have dealt with literally, many thousands of electronic attacks, from files disappearing from my home computer (key files researching Booz, Allen, & Hamilton) to an unending stream of attempts at depositing worms and viruses in my hardware, sometimes to the tune of several hundred in a week. When I broke the connection to remote piloting, or unmanned aerial vehicles, and Teslian physics, my sister's house burned to the ground and a week later, my brother's apartment caught fire. During this time, I have had two dogs poisoned, about a year apart.

Ned Lamont is his opponent.

Bush and Dick Cheney.

I just knew him as "Brad" by David Rovics
brad embodied the spirit of indymedia. he was not just covering stories
that the "mainstream" press ignores, such as the exciting, violent revolutionary moment which has gripped oaxaca for several months now. brad was not risking his life to get a good shot of a confrontation at a barricade because he might get a photo on the cover of a newspaper, get some (perhaps well-deserved)fame and money -- he was posting his communiques on indymedia, for free.

sure, brad was filming in order to cover history. but he was there also to
make history. brad knew that a camera is a weapon, or hopefully a shield of some sort, and sometimes can serve to de-escalate a situation, to protect
people from being violated, beaten, killed. and brad knew that if the independent media didn't document history, nobody else would.

The rise and fall of the UN
One's opinion of the United Nations reveals a lot about political consciousness; and because perception is usually based on experience, it's only natural that people from different countries have opposing views about the UN and its pillar institutions— the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, and the World Trade Organization (WTO). In the United States, familiarity of the UN is limited to vague notions of 'international democracy' and 'peacekeeping', words that inspire the noblest of intentions; the World Bank and IMF on the other hand are institutions that invoke little reaction among the US public. How and by whom the UN was formed, whose interests it serves, and the actual history of its 'peacekeeping' missions are all things rarely examined. It is the purpose of this essay to look at the formation and development of the UN, and in so doing, attempt to show the evolution of the capitalistic system itself, which was 'reborn' upon the back of these hardly-neutral organizations.
