This Martin Luther King Jr. Day ask yourself whether you're up to King's 40 year old challenge which the mainstream news media still hasn't come close to meeting because they so rarely report on stories which affect the LARGEST NUMBER OF PEOPLE in the MOST SERIOUS LIFE-AND DEATH WAYS. Can you take to heart the words King spoke just four days before he was gunned down?
Parece ser que el territorio de lo que actualmente es la Rep?blica de Colombia ya estaba habitado por pueblos n?mades, que posteriormente se hicieron sedentarios, unos 4.000 a?os antes de Cristo, que mantuvieron su presencia all?, sin mayores problemas, durante varios milenios...
Community members in Suchitoto were targeted by the 2006 'Anti-terrorism Law' for standing up against water privatization. The 'Suchitoto 13' are being charged as terrorists and face up to 60 years in prison. The Salvadoran government has been the practice ground for U.S. domestic policy before, and now we see it again in action with the recent HR1955.
One more sellout to OHSU hype.
As America continues to be distracted by elections that won't change our leadership for about a year or so, thousands die in the Iraq war, thousands more are poisoned from the depleted uranium being dropped there, and people continue to die from 9-11.

Will The Real Eco-Terrorists Please Stand Up?
2nd Prison Dispatch from Jonathan Paul
When I was arrested in early 2006 for the destruction of the Cavel West horse slaughterhouse, the media went into a frenzy with headlines describing me as an "eco-terrorist" or "eco-terror suspect". The local newspaper in my area had a heyday putting out stories fed to them by the federal government. The news media in my area surely enjoyed being the mouthpiece for the corporations and the government. For me it was not the fact that they reported the story of my arrest, but how they reported it.
Maybe I missed a post already but...
Pretty cool, check it out. Lots of potential ideas from these ideas.
NBC hates democracy.
This article describes a political opinion and assessment of the positive qualities in an American president.
A Call to Action
Tommy Tomorrow, the cartoonist, said that William Kristol's career as a warmonger had "failed upward!" On Aug. 11, 2008, activist Russell Mokhiber picketed the NYT's office and demanded that Kristol, who was recently named to its Op Ed Page, meet with severely wounded Iraq War veteran, Tomas Young. Young is featured in Phil Donahue's film, "Body of War." Being a repulsive Neocon, like Kristol, means you never have to say you're sorry.
Rarely do we get to see a fascist, terrorist regime attempt to justify its outrageous behavior and its equally outrageous budgets.
I love life, nature and wild unspoiled places. I hope that you share my appreciation for our magnificent natural heritage. Like many people, I worry about where our global civilization is headed, the direction that human history is taking. Often the company of fellow pessimists affords little comfort and I find myself discouraged, impatient with humanity's cheap follies.
We are all acquainted with visions of the Apocalypse and media fantasies of the period afterwards. Since Hiroshima in 1945 the notion of irreversible mass destruction has flourished. In reality, we have had the option of choosing a global nuclear holocaust since about 1960. What is new today is that our visions of the apocalypse have become more appealing to the discouraged public than ever before. This trend worries me and, I suggest, it should worry you too

Stop "The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act."
S.1959 does not provide sufficient public oversight to ensure the "Commission" does not target innocent Citizens and organizations because they supported a lawful cause opposed by the Government.
There is a state in the region with a record of faking such situations in order to trick the US into war - but it isn't Iran ... "The Pentagon has said that it recorded the film and the sound separately, and then stitched them together"
Unless the media starts to seriously acknowledge Israel and America's desperate attempts to start a war with Iran, there can be no real understanding of these events amongst much of the public.
These fascist corporations from the pharmas to the business educational kobal have lived off the benifits from the public taxes that paved our roads, had safeguarded our food, provided the grad students for research and so on. We need to wake up and end this NeoFeudalism!
Real ID should be rejected by Salem.

About a month ago, on Dec. 14, a 20-year-old marine who was eight months pregnant and about to testify in a case involving a crime at the North Carolina military base vanished. Local authorities say that five days passed before the woman was reported missing — not by the military, but by her stepmother, hundreds of miles away in Ohio.
70 car pile up? Controlled burn. Salmon extinction? Controlled burn. Sedimentation of our rivers? Controlled burn. Loss of Old growth forest? Controlled burn. If I was a lawyer in florida I would get an independent review of the causes for the 70, file a class action lawsuit with all 70 folks and sue the state, hard. Environmentalism NOW!

Opposition to University of California-Berkeley vivisection has been picking up recently, and the UC is scared.
There was some discussion in a previous post as to whether Rep. David Wu is all that different in his Impeachment position than Rep. Blumenauer.
Below is the email that I received today from the Wu camp in repsonse to my question about his position on Impeachment. My take: all the right words & rhetoric to say that he is doing what his constituents want, but where is the dogged persistence and leadership driving this iusse forward by Wu. Answer: it is not there.
In NH primary, Diebold says Hillary won: hand count says Obama won.
Hey all you law enforcement and 'law and order'(esp. Lars Larson) fuckheads.
Why do you need legal representation if you got nothing to hide or have done nothing wrong? I mean that is what you shitheads say all the time.
What about truth? This is where your "ends justify the means" and your arrogance and contempt for life is going to bite you in the ass and another reason to indict GW and Cheney on war crimes.
An economic meltdown (starting w/subprime mortgages) leading to recession or serial-killer storms due to global climate change.

On the evening of Monday, January 7, Philip B. Agee passed away in Havana. The US citizen was a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) official until he broke with the agency in 1968 for ethical reasons.
The existence of an outside enemy sustains the illusion that the "war on terrorism" is real. It justifies and presents military intervention as a humanitarian operation based on the right to self-defense. It upholds the illusion of a "conflict of civilizations". The underlying purpose ultimately is to conceal the real economic and strategic objectives behind the broader Middle East Central Asian war.

"Iowa Chooses Huckabee, Obama."
That was the headline front and center on the Washington Post January 4, 2008.

The top two-thirds of the front page is devoted to Iowa results.

What is it about Ron Paul that the Establishment finds so disturbing? This is a man who perhaps personifies Christian character and integrity, American patriotism, and family values more than any other public figure. Ron Paul is a committed family man whose marriage to Carol has lasted for more than 50 years. He is a lover of families and children. As an OB/GYN physician, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies into this world. His life demonstrates a commitment to life and marriage.

Privatization, deregulation and cuts in social spending is the trinity of the free market, Naomi Klein explains. The conscious production of unemployment is anti-democratic. The conscious worsening of the income- and assets-distribution is anti-democratic. In a democracy, the massive plundering of public assets is absolutely intolerable.
This is from Communities United Against Police Brutality.
Oh and these folks are personal friends and allies of myself. This is a quick heads up for you all. We are working on this in Minnesota.

The anger, violence and consequent killings which have characterised the disputed Kenyan elections constitute an anticlimax. This is because, commentaries during the run-up to the elections indicated that Kenya, and by extension Africa, was on the verge of new governance
The climate change deniers never miss a chance to tell us that research is showing the Antarctic ice sheet is actually growing. That sounds like the total amount of ice is increasing and things are just fine......the globe isn't heating up if it's not happening there......right?

In recent days, ABC in a debate of the candidates excluded Dennis Kucinich from participating in the national television debate of the Democrats while including Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. ABC-Disney is the same outfit that is seeking to destroy the lives and living conditions of the striking writers of the Writers Guild of America. These media monopolies are again showing their true colors.
Government officials have called lawful protesters potential terrorists and a threat to national security. Will protestors be able to fly after the Senate passes S.1959?

Americans are beginning to see that Ron Paul is not the leader and change agent they want.

What was the greatest failure of 2007? President Bush's "surge" in Iraq? The decline in the value of the US dollar? Subprime mortgages? No. The greatest failure of 2007 was the newly sworn in Democratic Congress.
For starters, I have become a single-issue voter. The two-front war in Iraq-Afghanistan continues to drag on; and I am thoroughly convinced that no viable Democratic nominee will stop these occupations.
I want to fire in you a passionate intensity around the subject of traffic safety, and specifically the proposition that motorists must take paramount responsibility for it. That this proposition is not at all obvious or generally accepted in our society makes the need for such a passionate intensity all the more crucial.
Back on Sept.29th i was walking in downtown Portland. There was a major protest that day. I myself was to join in later on, but at the time i had just gotten downtown & hadn't yet located the march. So i'm walking around, not looking or doing anything supicious, when three bicycle cops start trailing me. These pigs follow me for the duration ov an entire block. When i go to cross the street, that's when they make their fucking move.

The words "May pose a suspected threat to National Security" are so vague one can't wonder if that could" apply to stopping individuals wanting to fly to an anti-war or environmental protest.
more demagoguery from the Holy See
how little seeds become tall trees
The socialist parties are emerging as a political force in American politics, addressing those issues that are important to millions of Americans and working people; ending the Iraq War, solving the nation's health care needs, free education for college students, providing benefits for all veterans, protecting homeowners, creating affordable housing and providing for the needs of all working class people.
You asked for a treatise to explain my support for the "lunatic" Ron Paul. Since you asked, I'll send you some thoughts.
