WRIGGLING BURR UP SPHINCTER OF OVER-CAFFIENATED FREDDY 19.02.2008 06:09
THE ORACLE OF THE GOLDEN EYES
Here's my final (and by far most venomous/vitriolic) rant of the season. I know how some folk just hate rants. Oh well. I've no love for do-nothing talkers who jack themselves off into believing they're actually making a difference reading or writing endless pages of carefully laid-out pseudo-intellectual double-speak.All the valid information in the world is totally useless in the hands of do-nothings. A succinct punchy rant has the power to plant subliminal seeds of inspiration, even through dark, weird pathways, to recruit fresh energy, new blood to the cause, and the possibility of that happening is the only thing that keeps me going any more. I've pretty-well given up on "the old guard".

Time for a Power Generation Coup
Energy fuels US foreign policy and our sons and daughters are fighting and dying in Iraq for energy that can be had right here. My own son is permanently disabled after two tours in Iraq fighting for energy. It is time for an energy revolution. We have the ability to pull off a power generation coup right here in Oregon with community owned, wide scale renewable distributed energy.

If this is a subject of interest to you, in the United States today there are five Cuban prisoners, separated one from the other by thousands of miles. They have no area that can be sarcastically called the "Hanoi Hilton". Their suffering and the injustice of which they are victims will be known the world over; don't doubt it for a minute...

Environmentalists, Unite! part 2 When and How?
this is a follow up to the writing I did yesterday- Environmentalists, Unite! If you haven't read it yet, please check it out.

In the last posting I expressed my belief that a key for restoring the planet's health is for people to band together behind hemp. The questions remain as to how and when people could really come together to become this force that effects bringing Hemp cultivation and technology back onto our national landscape.

Environmentalists, Unite!
It's nice to see that Environmental Awareness seems to be moving more rapidly into the mainstream of our society, thanks in no small part to Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth". It seems to me that the time is now ripe for Congress to develop practical solutions to many of these ills.
I strongly believe that one of the cornerstones for REAL action must involve rebuilding the Hemp industry in this country. The Hemp plant has more potential than perhaps anything else out there to help bring about a sustainable future for people everywhere and its time we recognized that fact.

Puerto Rico: All Out to Defend the Teachers’ Struggle!
Puerto Rican teachers march (Photo: Olimpo Ramos/Primera Hora) We are on the threshold of a major class battle in Puerto Rico. Every day new preparations are announced for the coming strike of the Puerto Rican Teachers Federation (FMPR). With 42,000 members, a majority of them women, the FMPR represents almost all of Puerto Rico's teachers and is by far the largest union on the island. The Shock Force of the Puerto Rican Police and National Guard are being readied to go after the strikers. The struggle of the Puerto Rican teachers affects everybody. The working class as a whole, students and parents, teachers and defenders of workers' rights around the world must come out in defense of the FMPR! If there are mass arrests, the response must be massive blockades and spreading the struggle to the point of shutting the island down. In order to win this strike, it is necessary to prepare for a struggle not only of the teachers but within the whole workers movement against the pro-capitalist labor bureaucracy that sabotages the workers' struggle. Above all, it is necessary to fight against illusions in and ties with bourgeois parties and politicians. It's high time to begin building a revolutionary internationalist workers party.

For while inner city poverty gave birth to a music that spoke to conditions of the Bronx, Brooklyn, and East Coast life in worsening ghettoes, reggae emerged from the slums of Jamaica, where the poor were informed, not only by their poverty, but by the decades long socio-religious movement of Rastafarianism, which, with its return-to-Africa ethos, gave a future vision of hope to people in largely hopeless conditions.

In his well documented tome, "Protesting Power: War, Resistance, and Law," Professor Francis A. Boyle captures the essence of that story. He explains how "civil resistance" differs from "civil disobedience." He also cites cases, where he was involved as an attorney and/or expert witness. Professor Boyle's book is, indeed, timely and needed.

Bush Turns US Soldiers into Murderers

By Robert Parry
February 13, 2008

By forcing repeat combat assignments to Iraq and Afghanistan - and by winking at torture and indiscriminate killings - George W. Bush is degrading the reputation of the U.S. military, turning enlisted soldiers and intelligence officers into murderers and sadists.

MARTIAL LAW SURVIVAL GUIDE
This article will start off assuming that the Reader (you) is already subject to MARTIAL LAW; that is, the "suspension" of the Constitution. Curfews, rationing of basic goods, enforced relocations, confiscation of firearms and supplies, and summary arrest/execution by soldiers, paramilitary police and other jack booted chumps in black wielding assault rifles. Basic survival tips will be followed by more detailed ideals on how to counter this coup against the American People.

The remainder will apply IF you're reading this before MARTIAL LAW is imposed by the current corrupt government. IF you are reading this while you still nominally under Constitutional Law, it's urgent you read from the beginning to end so as to appreciate the opportunities you currently have to not only protect yourself and yours, but to attempt to stop a coup.

SECTION ONE: SURVIVING MARTIAL LAW

Rule #1

Never take the government's word at face value-except when they tell you that they'll kill you.

We see beyond the convenient labels the beast's society stamps on us, past the conformity or the instinctive rebelling. Past the styles and the slang, the cultures and nationalities. See that we have a common enemy as old as the civilization we live in.
