Plagued by authoritarian leftists, nearly all critical coverage of WTO activities is founded on a bemoaning of the loss of nation state soveriegnty. While I can think of anti-authoritarian critiques of the WTO until I'm blue in the face, can anyone else find clear examples of the WTO doing something nasty that DOESN'T just provide a picture of a poor benevolent government having it's wonderful dolphin-safe policies overridden? Know what I mean?
Aagh! And I don't want to hear the goddamned word democracy either!
When you've gotta go, you've gotta go. But if you've gotta go in a public park or MAX station, you're frequently . . . literally . . . sh*t out of luck.
How the ideology of genocide, with all its internal contradictions, can be found to be expressed in commonly accepted formulations of free market capitalist ideology.
The Kosovo war in the Balkans was peddled as a war against genocide, but this ignores the underlying economic reasons (IMF restructuring) the led to the conflict.
An examination of the ideology of genocide, followed by a discussion of the only logical alternative, Idealistic Moralism, as opposed to the 'pragmatism' embedded in genocidal thinking.
President Bush made his fortune by getting Texas taxpayers to pay for the Texas Rangers's new baseball stadium. His government now expands corporate welfare on the backs of individual taxpayers, while allowing huge tax escapes for large multinational corporations.
Rush Limbaugh's addiction to the drug OxyContin is not uncommon. As much as 30 percent of the criminal drug problem in America involves the misuse of drugs that are legal -- it's called drug diversion.
Here's a scary story for you: The person who wrote this story, and those who agree with him, are still on the pig force even as their hero Kroeker is gone. This came from the latest Rap Sheet at this address: http://www.portlandpoliceassociation.com/Current/Feature5.htm
I don't know if you all know this, but John (Cougar) Mellencamp wrote and recorded an anti-Bush song before the "Iraq War". Thank you Clear Channel for playing it!
I think his album came out either right before or right after the Iraq Invasion/Occupation
The following post is from a dated web address:
Bring on the civil war prophesied by the Palestinian Authority and then Israel can come upon some peace. That's the way to peace in the Middle East.
I was reading a article on here and the name Black cross came up.
We call for support of the DPRK and Cuba who are being threatened by US imperialism through escalation of war moves and war rhetoric and threats of economic sanctions.
We call for unconditional support for Syria, the Palestinian intifadah, and the Lebanese Hizbullah who are standing strong against the Zionist enemy of "israel", this instrument of US imperialist penetration and oppression in the Arab homeland.
Speaking Truth to Power -
You have to think of who runs the institutions. All institutions have power structures. It is those that censor, demean, ostricize, destroy, lie, and spread hatred that we must oppose. Anytime someone feels they have a right to tell you that you can or cannot participate in a public endeavor based on your free speech, tell them to go back to Nazi Germany. Always SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER.
alleged solar break through needs validation
New study shows that 80% of people who listen to Fox news believe at least one total falsehood about the invasion; link to Fresh Air interview where Bill O' Reilly walks out and cries; and a FAIR action alert about O'Reilly's false statements about the LA times.
Note: This article is not intended as support for mainstream media or NPR. It is a slam on FOX and O'Reilly
Today Rush ended his show with an admission that yes, he is a drug addict. This culminates a week of speculation of this fact. The difference between Rush and the commoner drug addict is that Rush isn't going to jail.
This sounds like a great opportunity to support those folks that are going to be in DC for the peace rally. Wondering if anything is happening here in Portland.
A plea to Governor Kulogoski to act on 17 year old McLaren's request that he investigate Clatsop County SOSCF and free his family from the underground existence they have been forced to live for over a year and a half because of the state's fraudulent claim against his mother, Taylor McLaren, and a pick up order for her three children, whom she is protecting from the state of Oregon by living outside the state.
what to do about the ruined garden
Why so suprised at " the Arnold " 's victory? The flesh needs a body, and Bush wants; no, needs his...
im not sure what to think about this site... but i think its worth a look at least..
In a recent speech (today, 10-9-03) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Walters of Drug Czar fame spent 70% of his time continuing the demonization of marijuana.
Congress pats itself on the back for saying wounded troops coming back from Iraq no longer have to pay $8.10 a day for their hospital meals.
The recent California Davis re-call was about Ken Lay, Enron, and $9 Billion and was initiated to prevent an Enron $9 Billion pay back.
While we all dither, we're about to become more fresh meat
for the ultra-scumbags of crony capitalism themselves. That's
right, none other than Enron(!)
Is the green party loosing out if I temporarily become a dem to vote for Kucinich in the primary?
The Zionist Jewish colony that calls itself "Israel" is the poisoned fruit of the racist Zionist movement. The Zionist Entity and Zionism in general constitute an integral and crucial part of the globalist onslaught. There can be no rejection of globalism that accepts the Zionist entity, any more than there can be a rejection of globalism that accepts other instances of colonial rule.
This is an article which suggests that cyclists pay a registration fee to use the road and be heavily fined for traffic violations. As if car driving is encouraged and subsidized enough as it is

A synopsis of some comments I received after posting "The Julia Butterfly Show."

A call to action to build Cascadia.
Officer Myers, as one who has observed the power of the pen many times, and who has seen the work of the Cat Woman before, I can tell you, SIR, YOU HAVE TRULY FUCK ED UP. Your ass it the proverbial vegetation, and she is the weedwhacker that can give you a much needed hair cut.
DOOR-ZONE DEATH TRAP: critics call Cambridge's aggressive installation of bike lanes next to parallel-parked cars 'an experiment with human lives.'
California and Arnold as a new Governer.
Is this a case of America on the new path for a revolution?
Just my own personal thoughts.
I've been living in Portland for maybe thirteen months and the cops have stopped me at least ten times and I have been to court four times. These were all for traffic violations, only one of which was really my fault. Because I have an out-of-state license plate and because I have a "Don't Attack Iraq" sticker on my car, I feel that it's become open season on my car.
Resisting the Zionist project/entity in the Arab Homeland is a huge effort of undermining Imperialism.
An observation about the broader ramifications of last night's 'election' in California.
To be a borderline poverty level working mother is becoming a reality for more and more single, hard working mothers. The edge of financial disaster is becoming familiar territory for millions of women and the families they struggle to support. A desperate scramble for survival is the way a growing sector of the America that is the real backbone of our workforce has to deal with.
Please call your Senators again to help defeat Bush's "Repackaged" "Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003." We need to keep the pressure on our Senators so that they continue to oppose Bush's HR 1904, or to change their minds if they are currently a supporter of Bush's plan.
Support Needed by YOU!
this was written to the US out of the UN web site on october 8 th. please copy and mail again, again URl is http://www.getusout.org/contact/contact_general.htm ... get em!
California ejects Gov. in projections
Ahnold = Enron forgiveness
If you want peace you have to be a part of it. "We must be the change we wish to see in the world." The Peace movement is not dead or dying, it is merely succesfully reinventing itself. Kucinich is a voice on the television that will speak for those that want an end to Nafta and WTO and want a Peace Department.
I am amazed I do not see much more Kucinich support in Portland, but then again when we actually have a chance at making real change, many "activists" shun the chance. How can we remain codependent on struggle and strife if we are succesful? Now there is the real problem.
Its been said that one Israeli life is worth 1,000 palestinians, and certainly one Israeli life is worth 10,000 British lives,
But what is a USA life worth in terms of Israelis??
In a Press Conference on Thursday, October 2, 2003, the Oregon Public Power Coalition responded to recent false statements made by PGE in their efforts to crush Public Power in MUltnomah County.
A movie about an activist group that is peaceful for seven years then turns to violence seen from its inception, told by the peopel that were in it, and they look back and reflect on it today. There isn't a better lesson for Indy Media enthusiasts. The force of Peace, Love and Understanding generate Wisdom in your actions.
Be like water
So called bike lanes on busy streets are cute and totally unsafe.
A history of the collaboration of German and American capitalists during World War 2 to not only profit from war, but to spread fascism as well.
the snoregonian had this to offer about bicyclists. We can ignore it or learn from it if we really want to make a difference.
People are feeling more and more isolated from the political process. The result has been the growth of local political action. Some individuals and groups are even calling for their region to break from the U.S. This movement may well become the next major political movement.
A landmark UCLA (University of California - Los Angeles) study suggests friendships between women are special. They shape who we are and who we are yet to be.
People of the workd unite.
There is a dire need for a dedicated armed revolutionary struggle. Young people of the world, especially the United States, must prepare for taking up arms and striking american targets in a show of force against the machine. There is a radical history of armed struggle in the US and it isnt very user friendly. The people that have come before us as revolutionaries must be unerstood and we must take from their mistakes and successes and move forward in the attainment of our goal.
Think deeply on this, ask yourself where do we stop these madmen. Iraq may be the only place to stop this madness. Every nation that desires freedom and democracy must resist the Bush Junta's pressure to participate. The welfare of the world may well rest in the tying down the US army in the soil of Iraq, at least until Bush can be removed from power.
local press slow on uptake
With the war on Islam now as far east as the philipines, ISRAEL has formerly opened the WAR today on Syrian Soil.
