Now, to Al's book. I think you should read it for several reasons. One is that it performs a real service in debunking lots of annoying personalities (liars) on the strident right. And exposing many of the falsehoods, prevarications and half-truths (lies) that they use.

I moved to Southern Oregon almost 6 months ago. My work takes me into Southern Oregon and Northern California from the ocean to the borders of Nevada and Idaho. What has happened to the diverse voice of America? It has been coopted by Clear Channel.
Each year, I continue my tradition of writing critical commentaries targetting important religious celebrations, and so as to not break with established tradition, this year is no different...
There's only one thing missing from this victory, however, (aside from a whole bunch of people that used to be alive, that is), and that's a theme song. No imperialist act of naked aggression should be without a theme song...we are pretty sure it says that somewhere in the PNAC document...

After reading MLK'S "A CHRISTMAS SERMON ON PEACE," I thought about Kucinich's "Department of Peace." Could MLK'S Vision become a reality with a Kucinich administration?
When anti- communist / Facist films from the 1940s work against the administration, we're in trouble.
You want to do something useful to stop Bush? Well, his donors are his power source. They have no hearts, they have no morality and the have no concern for the world. But they run businesses in this town and they care deeply about their profit margins (so boycotting and other actions are effective). Here are their names, businesses and even home zip codes (so you can look them up in the phone book).
"Whose fucking police? Our fucking police!" chants ACT UP...we need to breathe new life into our street protests...One way is to twist our tired slogans. "The people who chant this will never be creative. The people, bad slogans, will always be defeated." Another angle is to come as protesters protesting the protest...a convoluted counterprotest tactic that the media love to cover...

Oregon voters said yes to Medical Marijuana yet David Wu, ignores that fact as he consistantly votes against Medical Marijuana, even over the protests of those that elected him to office...his votes are pretty much the same as Tom Delay and the rest of the republican House cabal.

In the upcoming 2004 election many liberals will urge us to vote for Democrat Dean instead of the greater evil Bush. The reformist platform will attempt to repair the ailing system of United States capitalism instead of letting it crash into rubble..
Hey y'all, this is an announce mint to faerie families in Oregon from one who you might recognize. ...two ways i have found to subsist on when not yet deep-enough with my fae brothas. Do bear with me because two curiously deep people (at the very least) have some depth wisdom sharing that many of us could certainly use as we art ourselves and project our projects! d:)
Dean later conceded that he backed an alternative to last fall's resolution that would have allowed President Bush to wage war against Iraq without congressional approval. But he said the measure, which never passed, might have averted war.

Denying firearms to some means denying firearms to all.
At the University of Texas, Austin--the nation's largest university--the Young Conservatives of Texas at UT have published a "watch list" containing the names of 10 professors the group accuses of using their classrooms to promote personal agendas and to "indoctrinate" students.

My school is starting a newpaper. I have my own colum in it...and was told i could write whatever i want.The topic i chose to write was a re-occuring "problem" in middle school, marijauana.

The Mysterious Stranger
By DAVID BROOKS
My moment of illumination about Howard Dean came one day in Iowa when I saw him lean into a crowd and begin a sentence with, "Us rural people. . . ."
Dean grew up on Park Avenue and in East Hampton. If he's a rural person, I'm the Queen of Sheba. Yet he said it with conviction. He said it uninhibited by any fear that someone might laugh at or contradict him.
It was then that I saw how Dean had liberated himself from his past, liberated himself from his record and liberated himself from the restraints that bind conventional politicians. He has freed himself to say anything, to be anybody.

It warms my heart to dig through the corporate logos and shameless promotional gimmicks in search of the Christmas Spirit.

Looking at the repeating pattern of the Bush family and fascism, from Prescott's support of Hitler to GW Bush's beginning genocide in Iraq..
In late September of 2001, maybe a week or two before the US bombing of Afghanistan, while millions of Afghan refugees were fleeing to the Pakistan border, while the aid agencies were begging the US to reconsider, I went to my first PPRC peace protest. I joined it midway through, abandoning my outside table at a corporate coffee shop near work, and catching up to the marchers, glad to see their unambiguous peace signs, their open defiance.
....power to block things and power to achieve things are two entirely different sorts of power. It now remains to be seen whether Bolivia has friends who will help assure that the newly confirmed powers will be used constructively, in ways that will not exacerbate divisions and animosities.
Don't drive loaded, but don't apologize for smoking pot.
Winning the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people...same exact words were used in Vietnam...it didn't work then, I doubt if Iraq will fair any better.
This is a tale of weapons of mass destruction found in Noonday, Texas. Two individuals living in this small Texas town were arrested on weapons charges ranging from firearms to deadly sodium cynanide bomb. Our maintream media, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and other major news out lets failed to inform us of these home grown terrorists.
The reason it's OK to hate the Republican leadership is because it is a hateful group.
In (Vonnegut's) God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, one of Trout's stories appears; a story of a country that is at war with odor. A country, where millions are spent fighting odors, chemicals are developed to neutralize every odor. Time, money and manpower goes into a full-frontal attack on the scourge of the earth, odor.
An Independent Writer in Iraq is looking to be paid for his articles, I can send you some of his stuff to review..
A special team has been given a week to go through files on more than 2,500 people killed this year and report back . Police claimed that most of the dead were traffickers killed by drug dealers who were afraid that they would expose them and their modus operandi. Others were killed by police acting in self-defence, they added.
Mr Thaksin has consistently rejected allegations of extra-judicial executions by the police.

The evidence that the World Trade Center towers were demolished is compelling. Take a look for yourself.
What we need are rewards and incentives for corporations to keep the work in America and hire American workers. Why can't our government offer assistance with insurance costs, per person quote rewards, etc. to companies that can demonstrate that they maintain a healthy percentage of their workface in the United States?
Bush did good!

The ultimate product testers, the Miami-Dade PD. The marketing of new technology by showing its effectivness in police repression. I wonder if there is similar marketing bullshit outthere for consumer tazers and stun guns. disgusting.
