WMDs And The Psychology Of Fanaticism
By all accounts, the behind-the-scenes battle within the Bush
administration over just what information should be used, or spun, or
hidden, to make the case that Saddam Hussein posed an imminent threat to
America and the rest of the world was a knockdown, drag-out fight between
the facts and a zealous, highly politicized, "who needs proof?" mindset.
And, at the end of the day, the truth was left writhing on the floor.

The Problems with Howard Dean
I had to really dig to find some of these stories that were formerly listed on google, and now are completely gone. Even the search on Commondreams no longer lists the major anti-Dean stories - I had to go search imcs just to find one that someone reposted. That sort of thing alarms me, when sites are actively trying to lose all negative mention of someone.

Is Dean really worth all this just because he's pro-gay rights?? He's not an environmentalist (brought big box places to beautiful Vermont), he's against medical marijuana (a doctor!), he only decided to be against the war in Iraq when it became clear that the others he was up against would support it (so he could distinguish himself), he is a self-described pro-AIPAC Zionist, and he believes the Palestinian violence is not due to the occupation but to 'terrorism itself.'

Wake up Dean supporters! Switch to Green or vote Kucinich. Dean will sell us all out in a heartbeat. He only appears 'liberal' because Vermont voters forced him to be. Take a look at some of these stories, and decide for yourself.

The Consumerist Manifesto. Book Review
"Trade is the functional equivalent to force", Bolz says self-assuredly. Whoever pursues trade and consumes doesn't wage wars apart from weapons- and drug trade. Consumers as a rule are peace-loving beings. They don't hurl bombs, capture aircraft or cut the throats of others in two in God's name. Consumerism is the immune system of the world society against the virus of fanatical religions. This is the core thesis of the book..Economic success converts hostilities into customer relations."

"The theologians of the Third World resist the deactivation of the Christian faith in its public and political dimension and the misuse of Christian faith for legitimating unjust structures. Therefore they focus on God's actions in history with the poor and oppressed as attested in the Old and New Testament. The `world of the poor' is seen as the place of God's presence, suffering with them and liberating them to struggle against injustice and oppression." Translated from the German

Social Workers say NO to Budget cuts TODAY!
Multnomah County has been in a financial crisis since 2001. This year alone, $30 million has been cut from essential human and social services. Last week, the county announced that an additional $462,000 would be cut from an already reduced budget of $1.2 million for homeless youth services

On Thursday June 12th, 2003 at 9:30 am County Commissioners will be meeting to finalize the 2003-4 Multnomah County budget. Commissioners have stated that they strongly support the replacement of $100,000 of previously cut funds back into homeless youth services. Hundreds of workers from all parts of the social service industry, concerned citizens, homeless youth, community leaders, and supporters from the Industrial Workers of the World and Portland Survival will be gathering to participate in the meeting's public forum and to hold a rally to demand adequate funding, no job losses, and restored services. Workers welcome the return of partial funding, but are adamant that the County Commissioners are not taking the crisis seriously enough and that $100,000 is just a drop in the bucket. Workers will be assembling at 8:30am this morning at the Multnomah County building at 501 SE Hawthorne. [ Read More | www.portlandsurvival.com
