Military Men Are Dumb, Stupid Animals
many people have asked about the origin of a quote from Henry Kissinger regarding military men, which came from Woodward and Bernstein's "The Final Days" (1976). Here is the complete paragraph--and for context, the one following--excerpted from pages 194-195 of the second Touchstone paperback edition (1994).

"Our Religion is called America": Interview with Norman Mailer
"Now we act as though we rescued these people from terror. There is no reason to eulogize or praise ourselves to the skies. America is not a noble country..Flag conservatives (in contrast to value conservatives) like Bush act as though they believed in the old values but completely ignore them. They use the flag; they use biblical symbols like `evil' unscrupulously. They live in the illusion that America is the good and the only hope for the world. Without empire, the country goes downhill.." Translated from the German in Spiegel 21/2003

Can Cascadia Forest Alliance or Cascadia Summer help in advertising and organizing??? Maybe a bunch of smaller pickets would help....

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Active Political Resistance as an Obligation of Faith
The theologian and martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the highest name in Germany. As a leader of the underground Confessing Church, Bonhoeffer emphasized the nonreligious interpredtation of the Bible, religionless Christianity and the arcanum discipline.One act of obedience may be more important than a thousand sermons, he said. Bonhoeffer understood political resistance as an obligation of faith..The church could be commanded to "fall into the spokes of the wheel", not only "to bind up the victims under the wheel".

Triumph of Kleptocracy & Death of Reason
"The great danger of the lynch-mob terror-bubble we find ourselves trapped in, as the Germans under the Nazi regime were, is losing touch with the rest of the world. At the same time, we are unable to assess that this is no longer our government, but has been stolen from us by country-sized corporations and their henchmen..The Bush regime has made nuclear weapons a very real first-strike option, tossing aside all traties signed over our lifetimes. But you won't hear about that on the 6 o'clock noews.."

Why People Are Protesting Against the WTO - Op-Ed piece
A 900-word Op-Ed piece that will soon be published in the Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, CA.

I was talking with the editor about how it was too bad that the media never reports why the protesters are on the street. She offered me 800 words, later renegotiated to 900 words.

Ok to use this where you like for non-profit use. If you do use it, I'd appreciate a note to let me know where.

"Imagine a world where disagreement was okay... Before I try to persuade somebody to adopt an anti-capitalist view of the world, I want them to have the critical thinking skills to actually consider what I'm saying..This is about listening and sharing ideas with people as people, not as stereotypes,"

Libertarianism and Media De-regulation
Nick Gilespie writes in the LA Times:

 link to www.latimes.com

"With few exceptions, whether broadcast and cable television, video, music, publishing or news, we have a far wider range of choices available to us than we did 10, 20 or 30 years ago. Even content providers with near-monopoly power recognize that audiences will go elsewhere if they are not offered the material or service they want at an acceptable price."

I take issue with Mr. Hortsch's call for "candor", as his paper rarely shows any in reportage on police matters.

"The progress consciousness encouraged by new scientific discoveries and technical innovations trusted in a beginning without end..The themes of the whole 19th century were progress and evolution, growth and expansion, utopias and revolutions of hope.. No human future can "make up for" the crimes of the past. To live with this past of debris and victims without repressing or repeating them, we need this transcendent hope of the resurrection of the dead.. We can gain the "courage to be" (Tillich)."

TELL YOUR TRUTH ABOUT COP CRIMES
it is your fear that no one will listen and the intimidation by those we allow to control our lives that strengthens the silent code, those with no voice, those at the bottom,shall remain without a voice and shall stay at the bottom. our law enforcement will only be what we want it to be when we tell the truth and nothing but the truth.
those cops who silently condone their brothers wrong doing are wrong and afraid to do the right thing. so it looks like it is all up us, "we the people" to take full responsibility as cizitens and hold our law enforcement, our government what it is suppose to be, 'our government. otherwise my friends we will all be guilty of the next cop crime.
