a little thing I wrote about being homeless with a serious medical condition
Socialist Party USA, and Peace and Freedom Party are asking all U.S. veterans to join their efforts to obtain more for U.S. veterans and to end the Iraq War. The two political parties are also demanding an immediate withdrawal of all U.S. and allied forces from Iraq and Afghanistan. Stewart Alexander says, "The Democrats, Republicans and Bush are already past the deadlines to get out; and that was before March, 2003.
What happened to you KATU? You used to be cool, sort of....
Besides the fact that Google Map is moving their headquarters to Dalles Oregon in the Gorge,
On Google Map you can see actual photos of streets, houses, and businesses. With a Google Map, ANYONE can see visually where you live.
On Wednesday, Oct 10, WSQT guerrilla Radio broadcast a call for boycotting the 2008 election. Why? Because elections are a hoax, and US democracy is a lie!
Every year, I shudder, as hunting season once again arrives with the hummers and mighty rigs of the men in trees arrive to do battle with every four legged critter that has the misfortune to stick his or her head up.
A five member panel called The Clatsop County Board of Commissioners will be deciding on a "Blanket Approval Application" with many, many unanswered pre-qualfied issues, still, for Bradwood Landing/Northern Star Natural Gas's proposed LNG Transfer/Storage Facility owned by Portland Developer Gary Coppedge.
The Mountain Gorillas of the D.R.C. need our help.
Property taking by Government to the benefit of Private Industry?
Best wake up "Uplanders" it's headed your way!
Recently a Washington Post associate editor proposed that President Bush and others in his administration who support torture (or as the administration likes to phrase it "harsh interrogation techniques") should go through the sanctioned techniques themselves.
Please check out the cover and contents of the most recent Lone Star Iconoclast at http://lonestaricon.com/ which is subscribed to and read by people all over the world.
After a some what honorable attempt in exposing Nazis this last Saturday, KATU decides to review th reason why they came here with PSU prof. Dr. Randy Blazak. Apparently, Portland's aesthetic is responsible for "skinheads, anarchists, war protesters, assisted-suicide supporters, marijuana use advocates and other groups considered on the fringe" making Portland their home.
our collective history at 7 corners and the red and black: local places of the people may be gentrified but nothing will keep back our common struggle
American Experience: The Living Weapon
It's easy to get caught up in the rush and stress of day-to-day life. Never lose sight of what matters. Never stop fighting for and defending those among us who need help. Animals are at the mercy of mankind. Never stop caring. Look deep into the eyes of these beautiful animals and tell me what you see. How is it even possible for people to deny that they are soulful beings just the same as you or I? We are all one. What we do to them we do to ourselves. People need to wake up and be more conscious of their actions. End animal cruelty and abuse.
This is just global racketeering and plunder.
Because we're at that point in our global history.
Another month goes by, without justice for Fouad Kaady, who was murdered by a Clackamas County Deputy (David Willard), and a Sandy Police Officer (William Bergin).
A local law enforcement employee went on a shooting rampage early Sunday in remote northern Wisconsin, killing at least five people before authorities fatally shot him, officials said.
can we shut down the nazi's and still be free
No matter what they say, the bourgeois cannot escape the fact that Marx's ideas still hold water after all these years. His analysis of the capitalist system, its laws and contradictions are as relevant today as they were 150 years ago. The serious journals of capitalism confirm this.
Now he is a good cop.
This morning, while dazedly going about the normal wake up process, which includes making tea (doesn't it?), I was presented with a picture that I must share:
Despite the fact that many on the "left" swore that they would no longer support the Democratic party, just like Pavlov's dog they surrender to the "Sierra club" mentality that says that "compromise" is a political reality that can not be ignored. So it seems that every four years as election day begins to draw near, supposedly outraged liberals and self proclaimed "progressives" begin the slow (but predictable) process of succumbing to the "lesser of two evils" logic as it pertains to their votes.
It's clear. We have reached the end of an empire here. It's over.

Here is the latest agitational leaflet from the Seattle Anti-Imperialist Committee. We welcome your comments and criticism.
Next time you email Gordon Smith from his Contact page on his website, a "What is your Topic?" list will pop up, giving you about 70 different options, ranging from "Puerto Rico" to "Religious Persecution" to "Sex Trafficking". The first potential topic- the one he really wants you to choose- "Terrorism", is peppered 3 times throughout the list, yet any topic referring to "The War" or "Iraq" is conspicuously missing. Why does my senator want to talk to me about "Illegal Drugs" but not about the most important topic in the world?
Pretend that a bomb goes off under the Steel Bridge, that is the terrorist plot the exercise seeks to address...or is it just a disguise for practicing control of dissent in case of Marshall law? Odd that they think terrorist might hit the steel bridge when everyone knows the homeless are closer to the Burnsides Bridge Check out the article
Response to the lady suing APple for 1 million in "damages" because they dropped the price on the iPhone.
The Bush-Cheney Gang lied the country into the Iraq War. Now, Alan Greenspan, the ex-Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserves, has admitted: "'Everyone' knows the Iraq War was largely about oil!" Greenspan should be forced to testify, under oath, before a Grand Jury and/or the House Judiciary Committee about this amazing disclosure. The American people are entitled to the truth and the liars should be punished.
"The agency is trying to find an effective way to wipe out rat populations without harming other wildlife."
What else is "The Agency" up to? genocide of any wild species turns my stomach. I cannot stand this Agency BS.
Nonviolent for now....
Everything to get major political reforms has failed, now drastic action is needed.
Four women from Gee's Bend, Alabama spoke to an overflow audience at the Tacoma Arts Museum yesterday. These descendants of slaves are now famous because of their unique quilts. What they shared with audience, however, was not about piecing quilts. It was about piecing their lives under difficult times while seeing their lives as blessed. They shared their wisdom, that in life, just as in quilting, nothing is wasted. Everything can be of use.
I thought that the "Big Fight" in congress was to be in September.
NEW YORK - Primate scientist Jane Goodall said on Wednesday the race to grow crops for vehicle fuels is damaging rain forests in Asia, Africa and South America and adding to the emissions blamed for global warming.
This week, John McCain essentially commented that he would be more comfortable with a Christian as president. As a Jew, this led me to think about tolerance and inclusion and what we have achieved as a community.
Mid 80's - Some scientists warn about CO2
and global warming but they are largely
dismissed by other scientists and the public.
1993 - Two separate ice cores drilled into the
Greenland Ice Sheet to depths of two miles
both confirmed earlier evidence of many 'abrupt
climate changes' that have occurred in as little
as a decade rather than the thousand year
transition that was previously believed.
In an attempt to "avoid some of the trust-destroying incidents at previous events", an individual that is active in our communities has "drafted a statement" of "solidarity" for the city of Portland Oregon
Clear Channel's newsroom spouts the same shoddy, censored and generic journalism on both left- or right-leaning affiliates.
The practice of science is not genius, it is insanity.
Scientists are responsible for such things as nuclear weapons, chemical

As the opposition to the Iraq War continues to mount across America and around the world, many independent voters are now rejecting the candidates of the two corporate parties and are considering third party candidates. Within the next three weeks the Socialist Party USA will meet for its National Convention, in St Louis Missouri; the organization is hoping to capture the votes of those independent voter and working class people that are searching for a new direction for the nation.

What causes and political situations affect you in the first person? What causes do you lend your support to in the third person? How does your participation differ between the two and why? Positionality plays into protesting. If you are protesting about something that does not actually affect you directly, you may be able to take a more moderate, patient approach. People protesting in the here and now, in first person, often have immediate grievances...
A look back at 9/11, 5 days afterwards when even the conspiracy followers were propagandized with "FBI names 19 Hijackers" and "Bin Laden did it". we have come a long way since then. LETS ROLL! Check out this wayback machine link:
People can deny it all they want.
People can rationalize it all they want.
People can diminish it's implications all they want.
People can pretend that American ingenuity and the Free market will save us.
But one thing they can't pretend (with any credibility) is that we have not approached peak oil.
Every leading geologist agrees that there are no new untapped reserves of any real significance anywhere in the world. Of the untapped oil that remains, most of it is "tar sands" that are extremely expensive and environmentally destructive to extract.
Remember! Peak oil is not that there is no more oil left.
It means that demand has exceeded supply and that the days of cheap oil are gone.
The following article by Glen Morton examines the implications of peak oil and sheds some light into why the "powers that be" continue to ignore it.
Bush's "war on terror" quickly became Bush's war on Iraqi civilians. So far over one million Iraqi civilians have lost their lives because of Bush's invasion, and four million have been displaced. Iraq's infrastructure is in ruins. Disease is rampant. Normal life has disappeared.
Self-righteous Americans justify these monstrous crimes as necessary to ensure their own safety from terrorist attack. Yet, Americans are in far greater danger from their own police forces than they are from foreign terrorists. Ironically, Bush's "war on terror" has made Americans less safe at home by diminishing US civil liberties and turning an epidemic of US police brutality into a pandemic.
The Rev. Billy Graham, a darling of the Evangelical Right, has never seen a U.S. war that he couldn't bless. He once advocated that President Richard M. Nixon bomb the "dikes" in the north of Vietnam. He also criticized the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. for speaking out against the war. A new book, "The Prince of War: Billy Graham's Crusade for a Wholly Christian Empire," by Cecil Bothwell exposes the camera-mugging preacher as a serial warmonger.
I have barely seen anything on the big Peace march and rally scheduled for this Saturday.

The effectiveness of the US Congress IS a Fantasy.
I attended a briefing by Leonard Weinglass (he of the Daniel Ellsberg/Pentagon Papers fame, of the Amy Carter tribulations, and other famous efforts to achieve justice against at times huge odds) at Howard University's Law School on Wednesday, 12 September. I was stunned by what counselor Weinglass revealed...
Ahmedinajad has just completed his speech and q&a session at Columbia U. in New York.
The ideological similarity between Reporters without Borders and the Bush administration is evident to the extent that one questions what Robert Menard's true objectives really are.
