The "Ferris Doctrine" prohibits soldiers or family members from suing the government if a soldier is harmed or killed while in service ... even for "gross negligence." Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan preposes a new doctrine.

Essentially, this a Death Match for the central bank. The last time the Fed dropped rates twice in 10 days was the Panic of 1914. That year the New York Stock Exchange ceased trading for four and a half months. Will the Fed's emergency measures be enough to combat each mounting crisis?

Based on her own words, it sounds like pro-neocon "Democrat" Hillary Clinton expects to share the White House with pro-neocon "Republican" John McCain. Could this be what some pro-neocon elites actually want?
Commentary on a recent trip to Cuba...
This article looks at why the Times Square Bombing is a legitimate tactic to bring the end to the war. One that is not about action but stopping the system from going on.
What would the Democratic party have to do in order for you to denounce them?
Burn victim found along roadway near Brooks
Marion County Sheriff's deputies found a man burned under mysterious circumstances near Brooks on Wednesday night.
Around 8:50 p.m., deputies looking for suspects in a reported theft found the burn victim along the roadway on 50th Avenue NE near Waconda Road NE, according to a release from the sheriff's office.
The adult male was transported by helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland for treatment.
It is not known how the victim was burned, or whether it was accidental or criminal in nature, according to the relase. The victim's name is not being released pending further investigation.
Who is the FARC? and why is CHavez helping them
There is only one candidate for Lane County District Attorney - deputy d.a. Alex Gardner. Any Democrat willing to run against him would almost surely win.
Following the March 1st attack by a Colombian military operation that resulted in the death of 20 FARC forces including rebel leader Raul Reyes. Interview with slain FARC leader from July 2007.
Senators Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton and John McCain are rehashing the old political rhetoric that the Democrats and Republicans have coined to win elections every four years. However, in 2008, working people are searching for real solutions to complex issues; ending the Iraq War and dealing with a global industry that is beyond the control of the Democrats, Republicans or their candidates.
Back on January 20th, a 68 year old man was riding his bicycle, when a young female driver blew a red light, then thumped the bicyclist, sending him careening to the pavement. Since I am, myself, of similar age, I know that had to hurt. From this point, the story becomes a little cloudy, to say the least. First, my curiosity was piqued when I noticed how the press, and the citizen loving Clackamas County Sheriff's Office kept praising the "young" driver, one Amanda WILLARD, for "doing the right thing." Many news articles were printed, and the Sheriff's Office put out an inordinate number of bulletins praising her, because, she actually stopped, and asked the poor, old, dazed victim if he was alright, before getting into her car, and leaving him, seated on the curb.
This article looks at the Cumulative effect of both US economic and foreign policy on the future of the US. The reversal of the cold war by the US refusal to pull back from an arms race no one else was running. And the juxtapostion of US policy with historical patterns associated with Fascism
Monday, March 03, 2008 (venezuelanalysis.com) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez labeled Colombia the "Israel of Latin America" on his Sunday talk show Aló Presidente yesterday. Responding to events on Saturday in which the Colombian military made an illegal attack across the border in Ecuadorian territory, the Venezuelan leader called Colombia a "terrorist state," and gave orders to mobilize troops on the Venezuelan-Colombian border.
"The Colombian government has turned into the Israel of Latin America," said Chavez during his show on Sunday.
"Colombia is a terrorist state that is subject to the great terrorist, the government of the United States and their apparatus," he explained.
Know Your Enemy
Anti-war agitation from SAIC on the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war. Conscious support for the struggles of the masses of Iraqi people; the elections offer no solutions; developing the politics of mass struggle.
Chuck Mertz and "This is Hell" manage a distinct style of serious reportage and casual humor. indeed, for a decade the legally-blind host has broadcast a rowdy mix of college student attitude, scholarly journalism and in-depth reporting. The show itself has been host to such names, luminous and otherwise, as Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Greg Palast, John Perkins, Fatima Bhutto, Michael Moore, Patrick and Alexander Cockburn, et. al.

While Arturo Hernández, Posada's attorney said: "Mr. Posada Carriles is not and has never been a terrorist"... "His lifelong ambition has been to bring democracy and freedom to his place of birth", declassified CIA and FBI documents, testimonies, and other compelling evidences suggest the contrary.
Just throw this on the long list of extremely suspicious events coming to light regarding the terrorist attacks that spurred the endless wars and rescinding of rights in the United States.

A thoroughly sour grapes account of my experience in peace activism. I claim to possess no objectivity about this topic.
Not to be Missed. Naomi Klein, author of "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism" and a voice from outside the Message Machine puts things in perspective in a talk given September 27, 2007 at Seattle Town Hall.
we are always hearing how many teachers/ cops/ firemen/ doctors/ we could hire and all the good things we could do with all the money the Bush administration is using to mess up the world and enrich contractor buddies. Being mentally lazy and still not being able visualize the amount of wealth being squandered I thought up an easy way everyone could understand.
Ecosystem Services versus Timber Production, that is the question. Can we resolve two problems at once, enabling our local governments to be adequately funded while protecting our forests?

Nader is much more than the premier consumer advocate; he fights for American democracy.
This guide is an attempt to spread necessary information about war profiteering companies in our own city, to reveal the true enablers of mass murder, occupation and theft, to lift the façade of corporate responsibility and show the face of the murderer hidden underneath. This anniversary, take your dissent to those who profit from war.
Did you know that the wealth of Hillary and Bill Clinton is now estimated at $54 million? Pretty good, considering he was in debt when he left the White House. In any event, Hillary's bid to capture the Democratic Party's presidential nod is fading faster than the value of the U.S. dollar. In the debates, she's come across as abrasive. Her attack dog tactics are failing. If Sen. Barack Obama carries Texas and Ohio, will Hillary fold? Stay tuned!
$4 dollar a gallon and what groceries will cost veryone! Bush & Company coulld care less (after all he is a BILLIONAIRE).
In sum, Part D costs are soaring, and they could harm Medicare's core mission and the elderly.
japan civilian and governmental aurhorities under fbi/cia fascist rule, as those two agencies corrupt the highest police agency in japan.
We live in scary times. And no one scares me more than the faux-liberals of today. They are a most intolerant mob that has become so dislodged from logic that they'd rather gaze reverently at the false packaging of hope than seriously contemplate the issues of the day. They love bandwagons and hate activism. They strive for insular popularity while trampling the populace. And, in the true spirit of fundamentalism, they loathe dissent and flog the dissenter with the kind of glee that is seemingly borrowed from Jimmy Swaggart's beating of the ungodly unbelievers.
Ralph Nader is a national treasure. No self-respecting peace advocate can vote for the Democratic candidate.
Santa cruz activist house raided and belongings seized. No arrests made.
It was inevitable that if there were found to be serious flaws in our physics and in our understanding of gravity or such things as 'momentum' these would be quickly revealed beginning in the early 1970s, when human beings first began to explore space.
Cuba: Freedom, Dignity and Solidarity
Im impressed about the level of organizing beginning to synthesize in portland.
There was little chance that the 9/11 Commission was going to establish the full truth. One reason why: Its Executive Director, the Neocon-loving Philip D. Zelikow, had his own agenda, to wit: protecting the interest of the Bush-Cheney Gang and linking "Al-Qaeda to Iraq." Zelikow had previously written a book with Condi Rice, authored a paper used to justify the preemptive attack on Iraq and worked on Bush's presidential transition team in 2000/2001.
Did you ever wonder why after each victory of John McCain in the primaries the media serves the same images of a few dozen people "cheering"? The answer: McCain is supported by as many people as George W. Bush, i.e. 1 pct of the population. He did not manage to ever break the 1,000 barrier for an audience, including the large share of paid campaign personnel.
I thought this was pretty funny, in an ironic sort of way.
Draw your own conclusions.
Today, by mere chance, I remembered that the OAS still exists, when I read a cable posted on the Internet which contained an article by Georgina Saldierna, published in La Jornada, titled "Insulza rules out the possibility of re-admitting Cuba into the OAS". No one even remembered the OAS. Note how retrograde this line of reasoning is...
That Tuesday, there was no fresh international news. My modest message to the people of Monday, February 18 had no problem being widely circulated. I began to receive news from 11:00 a.m. The previous night I slept like never before. My conscience was at rest and I had promised myself a vacation. The days of tension, with the proximity of February 24, left me exhausted.
I recently tried to publish this article on an anarcho-capitalist site and got turned down because my advocacy to destroy some property was "the opposite" of freedom and liberty. My own personal conclusion is that many anarcho-capitalists are too well-off to really want to see any change happen. Destruction is inevitable in times of change. Hell, Thomas Jefferson (who these libertarians/anarcho-capitalists profoundly admire) was one of the best anarchists there's ever been and some of his views can be seen when quoted;

The epidemic of Obama hope may result in a huge national disappointment if he does not deliver as president.
Well, it seems that the Republicrat front runner has some slime on his shoes. NY Times claims that he was having an affair with a lobbyist thirty years younger, as she was oiling the skids for her employer(who provided McCain some free flight time in the corp jet)to obtain an FCC license.

This is a work of fiction... or is it?
One of the prime enablers of the Bush-Cheney Gang has been Sen. "Turncoat Joe" Lieberman (IND-CT). This guy loves the Iraq War and is foaming at the mouth pushing for the U.S. to attack Iran. Now, he's come out for waterboarding! Sen. Lieberman insists it isn't torture. How would he like it if Jonathan Pollard, the Israeli spy, is waterboarded? Torture is inhumane. Would Sen. Lieberman like to have a torture school named after himself?
