He'd probably feel at home with like-minded colleagues who are religious nut-jobbies who are fundamentalist in their "thinking",

The papers here (in Washington) are full of free publicity for the Presidential candidates in anticipation of this week's caucuses. It seems only fair to publicize the exciting nomination campaign within a party that opposes war and torture.
Two off-duty officers from different police departments wounded each other in a gun fight in the middle of a road in an Atlanta suburb, authorities said.

Evidence is presented to advance the theory that Kenya is a victim of Western destabilisation to stop its growing economic relations with China.
President Franklin Roosevelt introduced the New Deal that began to release the nation from the grips of the Great Depression. America is now in the Bush Recession, and to implement effective economic solutions it will be necessary to take a page from the socialists' book. One-time checks are not the answer, and the federal stimulus package is already doomed to failure.
There is much to celebrate and loathe about 2007. KBOO producers have taken the time to highlight local stories that made 2007 memorable.

Yes, that is right. Daniel of danielisright.blogspot.com is back and he has taken a break insulting, condemning and scapegoating immigrants, and has turned his hate-filled rhetoric towards none other than, Woman.
It is sooooooooooooo hard to find out what these two democrats support or believe about anything. I found two good websites so far.
Take a look at the what the candidates on both side say about the environment. VERY scary...
If you like big government conservatism, accelerated Bush policies backed by

the mainstream media and liberals, then John McCain is your guy!

Four of the bullets hit and killed Mr. Trotter. The Oregon Peace (sic) Officers' Association awarded Officer Trotter the 2007 Medal of Valor award.
In a letter dated December 31, 2007, Lynn Rozar and his wife, from Greeneville, Tennessee, want to know my position on some issues concerning the average person: WITH JUST SOME STRAIGHT SIMPLE ANSWERS FOR A CHANGE.
So, the question remains: Is Kucinich a Fraud, willingly playing his part of bold talk and no action, or did they 'get to him'? We know the Bushies are basically mobsters, did somebody threaten Kucinich's wife or daughter? btw- his brother died mysteriously a few weeks ago, on the day that Kucinich first mentioned impeaching Bush- coincidence?
In 1592 the government of Queen Elizabeth embarked in war against the Catholics in Holland. At this time the Puritans in England wanted to close down the theaters. Nashe and others wanted to keep them open and perform "history" plays as a propaganda tool.

A comparison of two recent cases in which a police officer used deadly force that caused the death of a citizen (Lane vs. Columbia County) illustrates the impotence of Oregon Senate Bill 111. If OR SB111 doesn't make you want to send your representative in Salem back to Ashland, Bend, Corvallis, Drain or Eugene then you haven't paid enough attention to OR SB111.
After ignoring concerned citizen inquiries for over three months, the Washington County Board of Commissioners is finally looking at a "Washington County Sustainability Plan" to address concerns about our area's addiction to car culture and energy-guzzling lifestyles. Now we need to make sure the "Plan" is a strong one.
Naomi Klein has shown America how 'disaster capitalism' has taken hold in recent years. Now, DoughNation asserts that business based on 'doing well by doing good' is the antidote.

Another "Arranged" Recession has begun. This is one of the most efficiant ways that the corporate wealthy grab a larger peice of the working classes wealth. Can we lessen the impact on a local level?

I'm in the middle of a last minute push to finish a project, so this will be a brief post. Nevertheless, it seems a shame that there has been so little discussion (ie, none) here about the Palestinian subversion of the Gazan-Egyptian border. So, lacking time to create a reasonable analysis, I would simply like to open the subject for discussion.
I'm getting sick of all the media frenzy about how dangerous it is to ride the bus. There seem to be a few automobile related fatalities every week in the metro area. The only tri-met fatality I can think of right now is the one where a gentleman was twenty cents short on the fare, wound up in a mental hospital, and was killed by a police officer a couple days later.

Cougar slaughter in Southern Oregon being fought.
Organized labor in the U.S. is fast approaching a crossroads. The enormous successes of the past are under attack, putting the unions in a defensive position. Battling not only the companies but their own bureaucracy, the rank and file of various powerful unions find themselves facing extraordinary sell-out contracts approved by their "leadership," but benefiting only the company. The struggle to defeat these sell-out contracts may well be the opening clashes of a revival of the U.S. labor movement, which has lain dormant for decades, but which by its very nature may lead to larger conflict. It is in this context that Amtrak workers have dealt a temporary blow to the trend of concession and showcased their growing political consciousness when, after bargaining for 8 years, a coalition of 10 Amtrak unions either rejected revolting tentative agreements that their union "leaders" had brokered with Amtrak, or refused to continue the seemingly now-pointless process of bargaining.
This has put Amtrak workers on a collision course with management, i.e., the federal government. The creation of an "illegal" coalition of Amtrak unions to bargain - "illegal" because it violates the Railway Labor Act - was the first progressive step in increasing the power of the workers. Now nine unions are poised to strike Amtrak, and if it weren't for a "Presidential Emergency Board" (PEB) that intervened, they'd be picketing already. The PEB - consisting of all Bush appointees - must now decide if every avenue of arbitration has been tried, when everyone already knows that it already has. The PEB was officially established on Dec. 1st, and in 60 days, if no agreement is reached, the parties will be free to act themselves. For the workers this will mean striking. For the bosses, this will mean imposing their terms of employment and destroying the gains of the past.
As the occupation of Iraq approaches its grim fifth anniversary, the anti-war movement finds itself at an impasse. The two major national anti-war groups, United For Peace & Justice (UFPJ) and Act Now to Stop War and Racism (ANSWER) will not be bringing their forces together to build the largest possible event to oppose the war - again.
ANSWER had proposed that all anti-war forces, including UFPJ, come together in a broad coalition to build a nationally focused anti-war demonstration in DC on Saturday, March 15th. UFPJ announced that they would instead be building what they hoped would be the largest non-violent civil disobedience action in DC on Wednesday March 19th, the anniversary of the war. To her credit, Cindy Sheehan attempted to bring ANSWER, UFPJ, and others together in a movement-wide united coalition to take joint action in March. However, the UFPJ steering committee backed out saying, "It was not clear how being part of another coalitional structure would help move all this work forward."

The stock market sell off that started Monday in eastern Asia is expected to trigger the automatic shut down of the NYSE which happens anytime stock prices fall too rapidly. Market values are expected to end up with at least a 20% drop since last October. A 20% drop is the traditional recognized standard for the declaration of a bear market.

This is unequivocally true. The three ice cores of Greenland and the Antarctic have all shown this to be a fact.
[With the Bali Conference being diminished by the Bush Administration's political appointees to a waste of the world's time by refusing every attempt of a global emissions treaty, it may help people to remember the Apollo 13 mission. That is the one where the lunar vehicle's oxygen tank exploded and it took a herculean effort of the NASA ground crew to come up with a CO2 scrubber to keep the crew alive long enough to return to Earth. They had only a very limited amount of material to work with and a very short time to devise a system of removing the CO2 from the capsule........but THEY DID IT!!!!! Miraculously they came up with a make shift device, out of nearly nothing, to take the harmful carbon dioxide from the air in that little spacecraft and saved the crew's lives.
With that knowledge, and the record of the US delegation in obstructing the Bali Conference on Climate Change searing in our memory, the letter below is the only conclusion that makes sense of it all: I realize the scale of the problem is beyond exponential......my point is that scientists can do some very amazing things, if they are allowed to.]
Somehow it's become acceptable now to be blatantly racist against hispanic folks. The open racisim doesnt suprise me, and scares me less than the kind racisim festering under the surface when people hide thier feelings. What does scare me is the way people are starting blame Mexicans for everything- and the way our fine government is responding in enacting draconian "anti-immigrant" laws.
Everyone likes to say they are "green" these days. I was looking at the oregonion today over breakfast and they had a big feature of this builder who got some sort of "platinum" leed certification, and it had a nice picture of a high efficiency gas furnace.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.
There are thousands of activists of one type or another who want to change society and recognize that we need a movement to do that. many of these people are in organizations and groupings, many are in Unions. What is causing the delay in the building of a new movement to throw back the present capitalist offensive. One major factor is the heads of Organized Labor, but they are not the only factor.

On the eve of the United States premiere of In Prison My Whole Life at the Sundance Festival on January 20-25, the battle for the life and freedom of Mumia Abu-Jamal heats up in the news media and the streets of far-flung cities while he awaits a crucial appellate court ruling and prepares to publish his sixth book from death row. Media activists present photographic evidence disproving the case against him.

One of the great things about life is that we get to learn.
We can evolve and become as intelligent and informed and spiritual as we allow ourselves to become. Or we can allow our egos and past alliances with flawed perspectives to resist admitting when we were wrong so that we can change.
Thanks to a little critical thinking and some wisdom gained through life experience,I have evolved enough politically to understand that capitalism is at the root of most of our problems. A fundamental concept I would of resisted as early as just a few years ago. But I no longer believe that capitalism can be restricted or regulated into submission, be it by increasing government or eliminating it.
It is extremely unlikely that working people will benefit from the economic package presented by President Bush; millions of working people are presently behind on house payments, auto payments and are finding it difficult to pay monthly bills, including the cost for food, gas and fuel for home heating. Today, a majority of working class people are living from check to check and are struggling to keep up with the cost of living.
