Is faith a really worthless thing...
More evidence of the true character of the candidate Michael Moore has endorsed. The School of the Americas has trained death squad leaders like Roberto D'Aubuisson of El Salvador and many others. Leopoldo Galtieri of Argentina, the man responsible for the "dirty war," was a graduate and it goes on and on. Read the book School of Assassins by Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer.

BETHESDA, Md.—While state department officials and historians converge on Washington this week to discuss the 1967 war in the Middle East, I am compelled to speak out about one of U.S. history's most shocking cover-ups.

Michael Moore says nothing new, he only spits out worn cliches which leave the whole truth on the doorstep
What lessons have we learned since the anti-WTO actions in Seattle? Can those lessons be applied to anti-war organizing? Can local struggles challenge global capitalism? How do we build movement for global justice that is anti-racist, multiracial and feminist? Pauline Hwang and Helen Luu have not only been asking these hard questions, they have worked to open up movement wide discussions about these issues in Canada and the United States. Pauline and Helen's activist work, writing and ability to connect people through the Colours of Resistance network have all helped to keep the hard issues on the table. And, as they argue, these are issues we must face if we're serious about collective liberation.

Light trucks are now the fastest growing source of all vehicle pollutants in Canada and the United States. Although SUVs are used primarily as passenger vehicles, they don't have to meet passenger vehicle emission requirements. It's a loophole that automakers have exploited to the fullest. .............
Hybrids are great, but they are too expensive for the average consumer. The reason they're too expensive is because they're not being mass produced. And the reason they're not being mass produced is because there's no incentive for automakers to improve fuel efficiency.
Homeless from coast to coast require more attention.
When people actually look at issues, they might be surprised to see who they should support.

Yesterday, as I was leaving the building where I work, a homeless man was trying to get in through the jumble of doorways out front. I saw that he was struggling with a small shopping cart, so I started over to open the door for him. Before I could get there, the "information officer" rushed ahead of me. I thought she was going to help him. But, to my astonishment, she barred the door and rudely waved him away.
