Rush Limbaugh's Top Eleven Drug Induced Fantasies
Come on people - have the cops have taken over your site? Cheney will be in town and when someone comes to town that you want to protest you go to WHERE they are going to be and protest.
The words of William Stafford continue to ring for us today.
Thanks to Bush and his neofascist goons in Congress (who paved the way for the current regime), America's center has been pulled so far right that the nation is in danger of toppling over.
The general level of "understanding" regarding Bio-Chemical Weapons threats and experimentation is DISMAL as exhibited here.
Cheney's Fundraising Trail is hilighted on CBS news video.
The vice president is no longer stashed in an undisclosed location. For 6 months he has been free from his former restraints to raise money.......
Commentary on Dick Cheney's visit to Portland and a critique of modern society.
while we are smart enough to realize that it's not consistent with the values we seek to uphold
by disrupting Cheney's right to speak, I have more pressing concerns than him. He comes in
and stays a few hours and then is gone. He is NOT that thrilling a pulbic-speaker, and for the
most part, who will care what he says or remember it...EXCEPT for a mere handful, and it is
these people that I'm most concerned for...as should you too...
questions about consumption
I'm wondering why I should support it and want some input...
Anti-war newsletter for soldiers explains why the U.S. should leave NOW.
I have a Lincoln Douglas debate in school coming up...
The hotel IS the place to protest! Any other announced protest locations are suspect misinformation.
Peak Oil -- Analysis of the petering out of the petroleum economy. Bit paranoid, but interesting.
The DC based anti-tax establsihment is out to see if they can trick Oregonians into shooting themselves in the foot. IF they can they plan on black-mailing moderate Republicans and Democrats in state legislature into opposing all tax reform by pointing to what they did with a few hundred thousans dollars in Oregon.
Big Business cannot even keep up with the ironies it creates, and it is in effect digging its own grave.

Feel free to chime in with thoughts of your own (or comments/praise/hate mail on my thoughts).
The following piece is intended to be 'inspirational', another attempt to share a 'virtual experience' you might say. In an attempt to save on disk space, I include links to one location. On Earth Day, April 22nd, 2001, I released a set of predictions describing how events would unfold up to and including the year 2004. Given how eerily accurate those prognostications turned out to be I anticipate that the predictions concerning 2004 will also follow the same pattern and come to pass.
Save us from the police
Evil George wants a Mars mission. Is he and Dick palnning to escape?
I sent the letter below to Eugene Weekly. The contact info given is for Lane county. For the rest of the state, see http://www.ouroregoncoalition.com .
ten predictions for the new year
An additional concern besides the fact that the hotel is surrounded by airport property is that we don't know he's going to be there.
Whatever happened to Eugene IMC?
A grotesque satirical text about us.
Yes, Vera. It IS time to get (back) to work. To work on the problems of the people of Portland, and not just the problems of your corporate cronies.
Citizens do respond to human need when they understand the "authorities" are doing nothing.
the 2004 compost bin loads
the 2003 compost bin is empty
the 2002 compost bin loads
where o where did 2003 disappear to?
New release reveals possible future for high paid, high tech yuppies in the new, corporate fascist world. And it ain't pretty.
This is really encouraging!!!!
Memorial piece for Jordan Feder, who died immediately following the Miami police state. A beautiful piece written by a friend and fellow fighter.

Market research shows that S.U.V.s tend to be bought by people who are "insecure, vain, self-centered, and self-absorbed, who are frequently nervous about their marriages, and who lack confidence in their driving skills."
relying on friends / aquaintances not working....
Ernesto From Anarchist People of Color Houston was going to be interviewed on Circle-A Radio on KBOO, does anyone know if he made it or had to cancel because of the weather. If he did make it, can some post the audio?

I was wondering if someone from indy could put a link or article about the upcoming visit at the top of the page?
This is a frankly disturbing question that a few friends of mine have become prone to batting around from time to time. It asks you to make a purely hypothetical statement regarding human history, and how you would change it if you had to shoot three people at any point in our history. It may reveal something unpleasant about you, but it's interesting anyway. Since we don't have time machines, this is purely hypothetical.
The Multnomah County Sheriffs office really ought to take a mandantory babysitting class. I met a gentleman at the bus stop at 2nd and Madison today who had just been released, in just a light jacket and jeans, wondering how he would get home to a far-out east-county suburb
My story of progressing from a gas hog to a bike kid
I have no proof and I want links. I wish for every conspiracy nut to take their tin foil head to the library and tell me what we can do about the CHEMTRAILS. I simply woke up this morning convinced that we are all drugged.
The Dept. of Energy should not be allowed to bring any more nuclear waste to Hanford until they clean up what is already there.
The immigration plan unveiled by President Bush in a press conference today will do nothing for immigrants and is essentially a new guest worker program, which will make immigrant workers second-class workers and not provide them with a clear route to legalization or citizenship
"This is not a decision for the Bush administration. We've said all along that it's up to the Iraqi people to determine their political future," said State Department spokesman Adam Ereli.
I sent this letter to the Register-Guard. The phone number and email address are for Lane County.
We need a lot more! I think it's most effective if you tell a story about yourself or someone else. It puts a face on the problem.
Dean has not given the slightest indication that he intends to withdraw from Iraq.
We must demand our presidential candidate bring the troops home!
Why do police spray anti-war protesters with pepper spray and rubber bullets if they stray off the sidewalks into streets, but they accommodate rowdy sports fans blocking streets, with smiles? Is this difference politically driven?
The US corporate media's double standard concerning so-called dirty bombs.
Until about than one-hundred years ago, human beings lived without cars. Our cities are now designed primarily with routing for automobile traffic; foot traffic is verbotten in most areas of the roads and cyclists are highly confined when sharing the road with cars. The most natural of human exercises and one of the most unique human movements, walking, has now nearly disappeared from many people's lives. I hope that this examination will encourage you to consider whether you wish to partake in the apparent convienence and isolation of a car, having exposed some of the many costs of cars.
There were about 150 protesters at Pioneer Square when I arrived, and there were about 20 or more counter-protesters. The counter-protesters were obviously organized by some evangelical group. Their signs were crazy and five feet tall. Huge red lettering spelled out that Jesus saved, or listed who was likely to burn in hell (Catholics, Homosexuals, Harlots, Atheists, and Secular Humanists among others), and all the signs were neatly stenciled and shellacked. Their signs, unlike ours, did not run in the constant drizzle.
Phil Newton is an Oregon State employee who works in Grants Pass for an agency which provides services for our senior and disabled. Phil has seen some rather seemy things, including sometimes a very ugly and inhumane treatment of people. He has told me some stories. They are not pretty.
He speaks from the heart, and mind. His message makes sense. Lets join him. Stop this madness. Vote Yes on Measure 30.
Most people agree that rape in prison is a common occurrence. "Don't drop the soap," etc. Since we all know that this happens, then why are we allowing people to be subjected to this? Does a person convicted of grand theft auto deserve to be fucked up the ass against his will? How bout a heroin user? A pot smoker? What the fuck is going on here, and why are we so goddamned complacent?
Iowans, we believe are smarter than this rich white man's club gives them credit. They know what "club for growth" really means. It means rich conservatives grow their own wallets.
thank you so much everyone for thinking of people without houses!
The time for action is now, are you ready to do your part?
I read the article that CatWoman posted entitled "Merry Christmas to All" as well as the rest of the thread. It is quite an interesting read. I think that I found something interesting yet incongruent that ought to be addressed.
