The Only Thing That Really Matters!
2000 Election: Fraud, 9-11-01=Inside Job, Afganistan: Illegal War, Iraq: Illegal War, 2004 Election: Fraud; How long will we allow this to go on ond on? Ever hear of the Republicrat Party? That is, Republican or Demecrat, as in synonymous. 1913 is when it all went bad for the Constitutinal Republic of the United States of America. The Federal Reserve Act: Illegal. Federal Reserve (Monopoly: as in Hasbro Brothers) money has no monetary backing (Gold). The IRS: Illegal. Income Tax: Illegal; The 16th Amendment to the Constitution: Does not grant the U.S. Government any new powers of taxation (Supreme Court ruling 1916). Yet, you comply like dosile sheep. Filling out your 1040 and paying up to the IRS, Federal Reserve extortion, which pays for none of the services provided by our government, by the way, but only lines the pockets of a few thousand families of Capitalist Pig Bankers who in thier unpresidented arrogance believe they should rule us, and rule the world.

Border Fence- The Cost is Far Too High
A study released last December by the non-partisan Congressional Research Service says a proposed 700 mile stretch of fence, along the 2,000 mile U.S. - Mexico border, could cost an estimated $49 billion. But what the report fails to say, U.S. -built walls on the border would cost both the U.S. and Mexico trillions of dollars in economic losses over the predicted 25-year lifespan of the fence, and non-monetary damage to political and cultural relations between the two countries would also last for decades.

Challenge to Investigative Journalists.
The American public needs to see a lot more actual analysis of the Iraqi Constitution that the U.S. has attempted to dictate to the Iraqi people. Why has such an analysis been hid from us? Would it expose too much of U.S. government's real intentions? This should be the focus of Washington's legislative debate about supporting Iraq?

Jimmy Carter’s book on Israel and Palestine touches a raw Zionist nerve
While not substantively answering Carter's criticisms, his critics confirmed Carter's claim that the Zionist lobby tries to intimidate its critics by charging them with anti-Semitism. ..."It was not the crematoria or pogroms that made our life in the diaspora bitter before they began to kill us, but persecution, harassment, stone-throwing, damage to livelihood, intimidation, spitting and scorn," said Lapid, describing his childhood in Croatia....It is inconceivable for the memory of Auschwitz to warrant ignoring the fact that there are Jews among us who behave today towards Palestinians just like German, Hungarian, Polish and other anti-Semites behaved towards Jews,"

How to Revive a Spiritually Dead America in One Easy Lesson!
Crosses on the Mall America is going down the toilet! Question: What are you going to do about it? The Russian writer, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, urged his people, in 1974, to take on the Stalinists remnant and to "Live Not by Lies." Today, America is languishing under the Bush-Cheney Gang, Masters of Deception. "Obedience to lies," Solzhenitsyn said, robs a people, keeping them "in the herd and a coward." Remedy--"Live by the truth...It is the only [choice] for a soul."

The Privilege of Privacy and Homelessness
I believe the thing homeless people often crave, miss, and desire most, is PRIVACY. Often privacy is the most necessary missing element for the recovery of a homeless person's hope and faith, and a return of their dignity. The privacy becomes a symbol of safety, even. We come to know we are safe, *because* we have the privacy to rest and regroup. Think about it. And if we cannot lock physical doors for privacy and safety, we begin to lock mental doors for sanity...

Army journal maps out the future for the middle east with Kurdish nationalist map
this map is a great gateway into what the military is thinking about.

the impossible!

the people responsible for this article have obviously done little research into who actually lives on the borders they want to change. from looking at their map, one source would surely be the Kurdish nationalist lobby.

Each ethnic group in the middle east has a fanatic nationalist wing with lots of power and each one of these factions has their own nationalist map which usually includes lands currently inhabited by rival ethnic groups. The maps are usually based in some ancient times when the particular ethnic group's empire was at it's peak in land mass.

An Iron Curtain is Descending And Most Americans Don't Know
"Why are you travelling so often to Canada?" the tough U.S. border guard barked. I was on Amtrak, going from New York to Montreal, as I'd done dozen of times before over several decades. This was my first experience (summer 2006) of the increasingly standard and intrusive "U.S. Exit Interviews" on trains crossing the border. I've been hassled on every train crossing since then, most recently January 2007. The U.S. now has a combined FBI-compiled file of all arrests and charges at all government levels for millions of Americans, and this is instantly viewable by police in many jurisdictions, including border officials of the U.S. and most other countries.

Anti-Semitism and the Beirut Progrom
anti-copyright 1983
Fredy Perlman
Escape from death in a gas chamber or a Pogrom, or incarceration in a concentration camp, may give a thoughtful and capable writer, Solzhenitsyn for example, profound insights into many of the
central elements of contemporary existence, but such an experience does not, in itself, make Solzhenitsyn a thinker, a writer, or even a critic of concentration camps; it does not, in itself, confer any special powers.

In another person the experience might lie dormant as a potentiality, or remain forever meaningless, or it might contribute to making the person an ogre. In short, the experience is an indelible part of the individual's past but it does not determine his future; the individual is free to choose his future;

he is even free to choose to abolish his freedom, in which case he chooses in bad faith and is a Salaud (J.P. Sartre's precise philosophical term for a person who makes such a choice [The usual English translation is "Bastard"]).
