do I remind you of some one
This is a poster that points out how ridiculous our consumption and waste of oil products is.
The debt crisis has been averted and people across the globe are breathing sighs of relief.
But in the back rooms of the US Congress, politicians are celebrating for a different reason. It's the kind of celebration that erupts when a group executes a complicated plan to perfection. The objective in this case was to strike the first blows against the national social safety net without encountering massive resistance. Mission half-accomplished thus far.
Cutting social security and Medicare is defaulting against you.
An Op-Ed piece summarizes the attacks on unions playing out across the nation with state workers battling aggressive budget cuts while they bargain their collective agreements.
The future is in good hands with young men like Tim DeChristopher, sentenced to 2 years in prison, a $10,000 fine and probation after continued Bush prosecution by Fascist Obama's Justice Department. His pre-sentencing statement is below.
When someone "comes out of nowhere," you have to assume CIA, and of course, Obama certainly came from the CIA, a perfect Democratic Party candidate to guarantee the vote they must have to win, the black vote. The business he went to work for after college, Business International, was a CIA front, a fact known already. What may not be known is his family's CIA history.
There are no coincidences. The first country one should assume is the source of any terrorism is the USA, and it is often aided by the Zionist government of Israel, both of which oppose the Palestinian liberation struggle, and both are pro-oil profiteering governments. Palestine plans to win statehood approval from the UN in September. Norway is also pulling out of the US/Nato bombing of Libya.

David Ray Griffin is professor of philosophy of religion and theology, emeritus, at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California, where he remains a co-director of the Center for Process Studies. His 30 books include and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions (2005).
topics covered include digging deeper than popularized critiques like that made against patriarchy, cultural apropriation, and the rigidities of political correctness (PC) in general. There's a lot to cover, so only one excerpts to whet your appetite is given here. In the main text, you'll also hear (if you haven't already) excerpts from Jason McQuinn's insights on 'guilt vs desire in liberation movements' (a crucial one for those being mobilized along PC lines)
Vast wealth for those at the top, unemployment and poverty for the rest of society
So what if the debt ceiling is not raised? Don't worry be happy.
More often than not, news of local scleroderma people in any Oregon newspaper is found only in the obituaries.
anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim political pronouncements fueled killer(s)
I continually check back for news and events in the Bikes/Transportation section but am almost always saddened by the lack of independent community reporting.
Forget so-called conspiracy theories. Instead look at reality. Dare ask yourselves who actually seems to have benefited from the 9-11 calamity. In light of the debt ceiling debates and continuous politics as usual of Washington D.C., it is time for the American people and individual states of this federation to look at a troubling set of facts. There seems to have been "several" beneficiaries of 9-11 that don't exactly fit the story line we were constantly fed by the propaganda machine and mainstream media as to how to connect the dots (which we were rhetorically asked to do).
Saying hello to City Hall
Long suspected of being the pawn of foreign agents, the FBI nails Burton..
KBOO is in deep doo-doo and it's scary!! I improved the lyrics from Neil Young's "Ohio" to let you know a little of what I mean....
The actions of an activist, deep in betrayl
Or maybe the question should be, why *aren't* you angry?
It's all about the rich and powerful going down? Hardly. What this tells one is how the rich and the powerful have manipulated your life.
Something to keep in mind when using Cocaine.
Before we can determine if America has succumbed to fascism, we first must have a good definition and understanding of what fascism really is.
This is a short bio on a Jew, a Zionist at that who wanted peace and was murdered by one of his own, labeled a traitor, in much the same way as Malcome X by the Nation of Islam, (not to be confused with Orthodox Islam, if you don't know go look it up people) or Mahatma Ghandi.
"Into The Streets"
when people in this country hear that the government might default on its loans in august, they panic. obama tells us that they'll have to freeze social security checks, which brings in the AARP to sob to congress and get them to agree to another trillion or so dollars of debt...after all, what's another trillion on top of the thirteen trillion we already owe? but I think obama is being disingenuous, and using the AARP and the like for a political end, that the debate over whether to raise the debt ceiling so we can keep paying for our wars is like demanding ransom from a nation held hostage to the irresponsible corrupt actions of the corporate elite and their government puppets.
I'd like to speak to someone who's been posting racist propaganda on Portland Indy Media.
Are traits associated with psychopathic personality actually assets to an ambitious politician or highly driven member of the corporate world?
"For those in whom a local mythology still works, there is an experience both of accord with the social order, and of harmony with the universe. For those, however, in whom the authorized signs no longer work - or, if working produce deviant effects - there follows inevitably a sense both of dissociation from the local social nexus and of quest within and without, for life, which the brain will take for "meaning". Coerced into the social pattern, the individual can only harden to some figure of living death; and if any considerable number of the members of a civilization are in this predicament, a point of no return will have passed."

You must find your own way to fight against tyranny--to the streets!
I'm trying to put my peoples place in sociaty into perspective.
To just respond to Alan Hart's largely rhetorical question embedded in the title of his article, there is no real Palestinian power - people or otherwise. Disenfranchised masses, the wretched of the earth, like any other mob, are only power in the hands of Machiavelli. This is self-evident. It is even a truism. In the case of Palestinians on ground zero, they stand at the threshold of annihilation while those in Diaspora look on. The only recourse for Palestinians today to overturn that dismal existential state of affairs they have been brought to, is to clean their own house first of their house negroes and fifth columnists.

From New Internationalist issue 443
"Mindless, violent thugs, hell-bent on sowing chaos." - That's the kind of press anarchists often get. Uri Gordon provides a more sympathetic take on a growing yet still little understood political movement.
The first step in saving the labor movement is recognizing that it needs saving. Sadly, many union leaders -- including Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO -- refuse to accept this reality, choosing instead to dismiss the current threats against labor unions as "exaggerated," or limited to this or that Republican politician. In fact, the labor movement -- especially public sector unions -- is facing nationwide attacks by Democrats and Republicans alike.
On a state-by-state basis unions are being blamed for the budget deficits that are the result of the Great Recession -- itself triggered by Wall Street and fueled by declining taxes on corporations and the rich. This massive recession is certain to create deficits for years to come, guaranteeing that the cross-hairs will remain firmly on the backs of labor unions, since the backs of the corporations escaped the cross-hairs by their domination of the two party system and media.
This anti-union atmosphere will thus grow, and will soon affect all unions, much like high unemployment has already weakened all unions by pushing down wages and lowering union membership. And union membership is already drastically low: with 7 percent private sector unemployment, unions are already facing near extinction. The attack on the public sector, if successful, will completely destroy the power of unions in relation to the power of corporations. Labor's diminishing clout is already recognized by politicians of both parties; indeed, the current attacks would not be happening if it were otherwise. Big business now has undisputed and complete control over both parties. The New York Times reports:
I started reading Keynes and Marx and so on, but could never quite finish. Never got too far with astrology either. Why bother with "economics" when you could learn bluesonomics, anyhow?
"And the plot thickens."
Staggering coincidences and unlikely perpetrator profiles beggar belief.
Please move them to the side of the road for recycling pickup.
Despite the ravings of religious zealots, The reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States displays the subconscious dream of the Founders- A New Age of Peace Among Men. It was kept from public display until this century by forces opposed to it's talismatic power.
If you think there's no difference between the parties right now, you are dreaming.
Between Powell and SE Gladstone on 39th women are regularly hassled by men.
Environmentalism is the defining issue of our times. The ecological crisis is touching all of our lives. The environmental movement is engaged in a life-or-death struggle with the forces of industry; at stake is the planet that gives us life.
I'm calling for a better process of accountability in regards to radical institutions in Portland.
I read this today and can't understand what is going on here.
I don't understand why there are so few gays in the communist socialist utopia like Cuba?
Cuba's Healthcare system and Education system are way more advanced than the US,
but there seems to be few gays. Is this the result of better Health / Education systems?
Please see the following link (within this post) to see the report that the fbi/cia repeatedly hack or delete because they do not want the world to see this:
i called mary alison ("customer advocate" for new seasons market today) to confirm that my reply to her less than satisfactory response to our meeting on june 23, 2011 (which included claudia knotek ("upper management") - and was told - yes she got it and her response was to tell me she was too busy to bother to care any further and that i was being "troublesome".
On only the second sunny weekend of the year in Portland, Oregon, 60 plus labor activists decided to spend their Saturday at the Electricians union hall (IBEW Local 48), at the United Labor Strategy Meeting — an event unlike any other happening in the country. What made the meeting unique was both its perspective and the diversity of unions that participated.
You are encouraged to first seek compensation and restitution for the Palestinians who have been, and still are, experiencing a far worse holocaust today at the hands of the grandchildren of the Jewish holocaust victims.
In a 5 to 4 decision on June 20, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out an 11-year-old class action lawsuit filed against giant retailer Wal-Mart. The lawsuit represented several women plaintiffs claiming gender discrimination and potentially represented 1.5 million female Wal-Mart workers nationwide. The major issue in the case was whether the lawsuit satisfied a requirement of the class-action rules that "there are questions of law or fact common to the class" filing the suit. The conservative majority on the court ruled it did not.
Agree with the mainstream media that Obama's plan for 30,000 troops withdrawn from Afghanistan in a year is "rapid"? Let's compare with Vietnam.
It is tragic that we are adopting a barbaric ritual of male circumcision and female genital mutilation
that belongs to Iron age in the twenty-first century.
From the moment of birth, every child has all the human rights of any other person -
including the inviolable right to freedom from non-consensual, non-therapeutic bodily alternation.
Muslim and Jew Males and females are being denied their inherent right to keep all the body parts
with which they were born. Fixation of Muslims and Jews with physical matters like on diet,
bodily cleanliness and circumcision reveal their spiritual improvishment.
Res Ipsa Loquitor
It is unfair to compare politicians to real prostitutes, who, for the most part, have limited careers. Unlike prostitutes, politicians make more dough the older and uglier they get.
