On March 17, 2007, the 4th anniversary of the start of the criminal invasion of Iraq, tens of thousands of people from around the country will descend on the Pentagon in a mass demonstration to demand: U.S. Out of Iraq Now!
Everyday more and more people are joining the mobilization and important victories are being won.
The significance of the tomb archeology.
The logic of the the Growth Acceleration Program opposes classic economists as Michael Kalecki and John Keynes. The GAP that does not contain a expansionist monetary policy is not the GAP, is the anti-GAP, as, by the way, the last act of the Copom made clear.
Yes, I'm glad he is alive but it saddens me that we can't give the same kind of recognition and coverage to even a fraction of our soldiers on the ground who were not as fortunate.
Time to start being serious about a free and independant Cascadia
Expect to hear things like this:
Do you support Peace or War? If no one is doing their job, then how can right decisions be made.
about Al Sharpton being a decendant of a slave that Strom Thurmond"s family owned, Thurmons neice tells CNN that "it is wonderful that (Sharpton) was able to become what he is in spite of what his forefather was."
Forest Farm Management Principles constitute an Ecological Approach to Forest Management. Our efforts to find a balance between conservation and judicious utilization of the forest's abundant resources, are vital to the future of our planet earth and the survival of humans as a species.

'nuff said in the title
Two major events, both taking place this week, underscore the fact that the Anglo-Dutch oligarchy, centered in the City of London, is arrived at a moment of truth that could determine, in the immediate hours and days ahead, whether the planet is plunged into a civilizational dark age.
If you or someone you know is paying federal taxes this year, you are paying for and supporting this fascist government, its ridiculous foreign policies and the killing of many innocent people. BUT THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE!! Refuse to support further funding of the war!! The War Resisters League is publicly redirecting federal taxes to go to peaceful, non-violent and underfunded programs, such as social and educational programs, and also veterans programs (Yes, we do support our vets!) If you would like to be part of this, either publicly or anonymously, please contact the War Resisters League at firstname.lastname@example.org or attend the next
The secret to getting the right answers is asking the right questions. And the right questions at this point are not, "Who gets Anna Nichole Smith's body?" and "Will Britney Spears make it through rehab this time?"

Though Kucinich impresses audiences who see him speak, he refuses to take corporate contributions and cannot be bought. Because of this, the corporate-owned news media tries to discount his popularity. His best chance for winning the Democratic nomination is to speak to as many live audiences as possible between now and the primaries. The election of November 7, 2006 proved the voters can overrule the big donors and the news media. If 2008 brings a repeat of 2006, Dennis Kucinich will likely be the next President of the United States.
America is headed for "a long emergence," according to author, James H. Kunstler. He's convinced that the days of the economy running on a cheap supply of fast-fading oil will soon be history. He spoke at Loyola College in Baltimore, MD, on Feb. 20, 2007. Kunstler said it's time for the country to think: "Downscale!" He sees hard times ahead. Kunstler also doesn't think much of how the U.S. looks either. He said much of it is a "piece of crap."
I was very disturbed by a news story I saw recently about a girl named "Anna Mae." Her biological parents are Chinese, and the adopting parents are a white American family. The biological parents want Anna Mae back. Video footage from the house of her adoptive family, showed them asking her if she wants to go to China and she says, "...no, never...," etc. 8 year old children should not be dragged into custody battles between adults...

We have all eaten horrific vegan food. It is inevitable. But over time, I have collected truly delicious vegan recipes and thought I would share a few with you in this article. Vegan food does not have to suck! Vegan foods are generally cheaper to make than dairy and meat product foods and often easier to store, not requiring refrigeration. The following recipes are easy to make, kids love them, they are healthy foods, and they actually taste great!
Of all the available options open to the Portland Police Bureau to make changes that could make Portland's streets safer, they choose...a bandaid!

George Washington deserved the title, "Father of the Country." For eight and one half years, refusing any pay, he led the Continental Army, a gallant force which he helped to forge from the strength of his own stellar persona. After the victory over Great Britain in 1783, Washington, like the Roman General Cincinnatus, relinquished his military command at Annapolis, MD, and returned to his Mt. Vernon, VA home. The old General was also a keen observer. In June, 1799, after serving as the nation's first President,), he watched party politics first emerging. When the parties selected candidates to suit their own organizational interests, leaving the nation's well-being out of the loop, he commented: "They...can set up a broomstick...it would still command their vote [for President!]" Well, guess what General? Little has changed. The GOP did just that in the elections for President in 2000, and again in 2004. The broomstick's name is George W. Bush!

So you feel like shit cause you can not stop the occupation of Iraq, the clandestine war in Iran, the build up to weapons of mass destruction again Iran, the class war waging on our streets, the erosion of basic civil liberties, the corporate assault on the biosphere and so much more Amerikan Fascism.
Then stop supporting it. Simply stop paying federal fees, taxes, debt and other ransoms from neo-feudalism. Starting now! Highway Blog, spray paint, banner drop, tell friends, call up family, shout it out to neighbors, leave leaflets at pubs and cafes, hand write it in big letters on that wall or across the window.

Riverbend of Baghdad is still alive and blogging.
When Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) met with President George W. Bush, in the White House, on Feb. 15, 2007, he got the distinct impression that Bush's "soul was shut down," and that on the Iraqi War that his "mind was shut tight." Non-binding Congressional Resolutions will not stop Bush's "Surge." Cutting off funds for the war will. Antiwar activists are showing the way on this issue by taking their campaign directly to the U.S. Congress.
Free's unjust 23 year sentence has finally been thrown out. Only thing is, he has already served more time than rapists would serve if convicted in the same court.
Or are we at war with Eastasia...

Not only the fiancncial bottom line counts, but also the social and environmental ones. Obviously it is very embarrassing if a company has been cooking its own books.. The goal is a change in business reporting.
Interview with retired U.S. Army Reserve Col. Ann Wright, conducted by Between the Lines' Scott Harris
Hezbollah's ideological roots lie in the 1970s "movement of the deprived," which advocated for the rights of Lebanon's historically marginalized Shi'a population and for all oppressed groups. In 1982, Israel invaded Lebanon, killing as many as 14,000 and wounding another 20,000-the vast majority of whom were civilians-in the first two weeks alone. Hezbollah emerged out of the popular Shi'a militias resisting the Israeli occupation and participating in the civil war, formally announcing itself in an open letter to "all the oppressed in Lebanon and the world," ....
This DARPA overview of the hub motor/diesel Hummer replacement (?) shows how progressive orientated and advocated technology is being used to kill people using some talented individuals.
What the US historically lacks in mass social movements, it has (partially) made up for in egalitarian legal institutions. Now all of that is under siege. Why the law is (or should be) important to American leftists.

the famous WTO protest in Seattle is being made into a hollywood movie featuring Woody Harrelson. the summary is as follows:Activists arrive in Seattle, Washington en masse to protest a meeting of the World Trade Organization. Riots and chaos ensue when large crowds become hostile and police are outnumbered.

We must act now and focus on the forthcoming appropriations bill. Please contact your members of Congress and urge them to vote for the troops, for innocent civilians, for our nation's standing in the world and AGAINST the appropriation request.

"Toilets MAY Spell Relief"- much ado about dumping!
The problems facing America today are many, but they can be solved with a President that has the best interests of all Americans at heart. Too many politicians are tied to corporate interests, depending on these vested interests to finance their campaign, which adversely affects the Politician's stance on issues. From ending the war in Iraq, to providing Universal Health Care, Dennis Kucinich's platform is based on what is good for the people, not the corporations.

Reflections Inspired by 9/11 and American Empire: Muslims, Christians, and Jews Speak Out (Volume II)Edited by Kevin Barrett, John Cobb, Jr. and Sandra Lubarsky. The event meant to pit one religion against the other and spark endless war might be reexamined by good people of all faiths to unite them in pursuit of truth, to end oppression, to challenge empire.
Why won't Oregon nonrepresentatives stop the funding? It can't be fear of the electoral consequences, since most of their constituents want the troops out.

CoIntelPro-style attacks within the 9-11 truth movement are to be expected, and Fintan Dunne's longstanding dislike of Austin-based Radio broadcaster Alex Jones just might fit into the category of sanctioned psyop; in the least, it demonstrates Dunne has a serious bias. Dunne's latest broadcast uses edited audio in an attempt to make Jones look like a fruit loop.
Typical Christian Republican family values.
My opinion of the reports of weapons from Iran is low.
Four of Oregon's seven largest cities—Portland, Eugene, Gresham, and Beaverton—have signed onto the Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, committing themselves to the fight against global warming. A fifth—Hillsboro—is working on an independent plan to combat the greenhouse effect. Of Oregon's biggest cities, only Salem and Medford have yet to get in on the action.
The RC Bishops in the U.S. are against abortion. Most of the RC laity is against it, too. They get the message from the Bishops on that issue. Yet, these same Bishops, and the Pope, too, are also, on moral grounds, against the war in Iraq. Nevertheless, that idea, strangely, hasn't gotten down to most of the faithful. William Hughes asks Cardinal William Keeler why.
