Here is an email that has been going around in conservative circles....just thought you all would like to see what kind of classist, sexist, racist drivel some of the woefully misinformed population is entertaining.
Pics from us inside the store, rallying, chanting, and cutting up Safeway Club cards (the security guards did NOT like that bolt-cutter looking thing!)

Something to think about...
I heard conflicting reports about Calendula. The only organic vegan restruant in town. I decided to see for myself.
Dissed and Disrespected: Political Prisoners in the US
by Political Prisoner Ray Luc Levasseur
"Assasin's Gate" is the nickname of the protective barrier that keeps suicide bombers from blowing up important people
Here is what Michael Moore wrote about NATO's Kosovo campaign -- led by Wesley Clark -- in 1999.
"Every night, Clinton isn't just bombing Yugoslavia, he's bombing you."
News reports contradict satellite images for the last couple of days...
The reaction to Dean's Iowa speech is harsh and unfair.
$800 Million is better spent (or saved for that matter) by the people rather than a government that's addicted to spending.
Before I begin my own rant about the coverage on Howard Dean's campaign in Iowa, let it be known that I am a member of Dennis Kucinich's Media Team, and it is the latter who will truly lead this country in the best direction. However, I feel compelled to counter the media's portrayal of Mr. Dean who is quickly becoming orphaned by the media that raised him.
New Hawthorne restaurant Calendula is such a rip-off it almost gives vegan cuisine a bad name
So writes the CEO of SCO Computing, Darl McBride, in a letter to the US Congress. He bases his case on the strength of recent legislation such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and court rulings by the current ultraright US Supreme Court that have been almost universally reviled among the ranks of online civil libertarians.

"To fight the Empire is to be infected by its derangement; this is a paradox; whoever defeats a segment of the Empire becomes the Empire; it proliferates like a virus, imposing its form on its enemies. Thereby it becomes its enemies." -Philip K. Dick, Valis, 1983
The shortest distance between two points is the path of least resistance.
DemNow! had Alexandra Robbins on their show yesterday morning in addition to other guests discussing the facts around Kerry being a Bonesman just like the POTUS (president). Here is text about it that http://www.commondreams.org reprinted and an mp3 snippet of Jeremy Scahill reading from Brenda Norrell's article about S&B desecrating Geronimo's gravesite.
Below is a letter I sent to Eugene Weekly, another letter, and EW's position on M30. Which side are you on?

Forget the speech full of empty promises, forget the media platitudes and ersatz
adulations, forget wishful thinking. If you want to know the real state of the
union, take a good look with your eyes.
In January of each year, articles are published proposing that various cliches, tired, and inappropriate words be drive kicking and screaming (or sometimes simply limping passively) from the English language.
Even during the "Great Depression" there were years that the stock
market made overall annual gains. Much like the market advances of
last year, this did not signify that the U.S. (or the rest of the
world) was out of the economic doldrums. Commodity prices and
unemployment rates remained high throughout the 1930's for the common
workingman who, incidentally, was only saved from the most basic
material plight thanks to WW2. Workers of industrialized nations
today cannot hope to be so lucky as to be saved by another world war
because the current economic conditions are far more bleak (and
warfare, for that matter, is far more unpleasant).
I want you to see something. Here are the results of the Iowa Caucus on 1/21/1992: Harkin 76.4%, Tsongas 4.1%, Clinton 2.8%, Kerrey 2.4%, Brown 1.6%

Using Fundamentals of US Foreign and Domestic Policy to Improve Your Life (satire)
"The work -- titled Snow White and the Madness of Truth -- was created by Dror Feiler, an Israeli-born artist who said it was supposed to call attention to how weak people left alone can be capable of horrible things."
came back to check any further comment's to posting on GOP HYPOCRITE of the week,
which has slipped to 2nd page, and lo and behold....found that a few comment's on the
board from yesterday had been removed in the transition from page 1 to page 2. Don't
know about you...but to me this clearly indicates that someone...no doubt some little ol'
"volunteer" Portland Indymedia worker has once again shown their "true colors" and is
into exercising "censorship", which is at total variance to FREE SPEECH. Thus, it rises
the question>>>are some of these "volunteers" nothing more than planted "government
agents" or "trolls" that are merely wolves in sheep's clothing? If they are, then frankly, it
seems obvious that their "volunteer" efforts are not needed, nor wanted, nor in further-
ance to what Portland Indymedia claims itself to be. Someone with authority there had
best check into this...dont ya think?
Ephedra has been used for thousands of years for it's beneficial properties. It's being banned supposedly because it's a dangerous dietary supplement LINKED with the deaths of 155 people total. Meanwhile, in the US alone, 165,000 people die every year using properly taken pharmaceutical drugs.
If he doesn't win New Hampshire, I'm checking out. Life just won't be worth living anymore if my hero Howard Dean doesn't get the nomination.

Thank you for participating in Cafe Revolution
Church and State in the US begins to blur more and more. Bush's State of the union speech is a good example. There is not only a class war but also a religeous war as well.

The estate of Joan Kroc, the McDonnalds heiress, is giving an estimated $1.5 Billion to the Salvation Army for building community centers.

Iowa Interpetation: Bummer
The Iraqis aren't appreciating their occupation!
My name is Mick Stallup. Elect me and I'll be the best President the United States has ever had. You do not know me, you will never meet me - in fact I do not exist. So don't vote for me, really. It would be a waste of a powerful democratic resource. But in any case, here is my platform and perhaps the next President will read it and get some ideas.
I believe that the Dictator in power has made it so difficult for us to create meaningful social change on the streets and in our meeting halls that we must vote for the opposition candidate in November....
Washington's hawks have sent a public manifesto to President George Bush demanding regime change in Syria and Iran and a Cuba-style military blockade of North Korea backed by planning for a pre-emptive strike on its nuclear sites."
In a previous piece I discussed how, immediately after the Summit of the America's concluded on Earth Day, 2001, an 'unknown' type of space craft appeared outside the space station and was filmed by Nasa's space shuttle camera. (Nasa admitted, once and only once, that they did film this unusual craft, and probably caught hell for doing so, since nothing has been heard about this extremely important matter since then).
If Bushco has its way....
"Washington committed a dreadful mistake in Iraq. The advisors of the president errored militarily and politically. Now we are paying a high price for that..The Bush administration really imagines itself on a crusade. It committed the greatest sin possible in the art of government. It only hears what it wants to hear..and sees what it wants to see even when weapons of mass destruction were undiscovered.."
Any time you start something it is imbued with the universal energies in play at that time, know how to use them will make you or your group much more effective in any endeavor...

As we learn more about what causes mental illness, we seem to have fewer resources.
Moore's books can really Goad. Now he's effectively been Mind-conTRoLLed.
M.M. can really be a disher-outer, now hope he can be a pun-taker as We point out he IS a Fakir.
Ponting out the Mold, Alot of books he has Sold.
Now it can be Told, Joining IN real participation with a True grassroots movement IS Bold.
But he Falls in Line, saying No Thanks, I Fold.
To merely honor King as a cartoon poster boy for racial unity and Christian brotherhood is to not fully understand his legacy and the meaning of his death. William F. Pepper outlined the case against the local, state, and federal government in the meticulously orchestrated state-sponsored execution of a dissident. King's ultimate crime was that he managed to transcend rhetoric and build an effective multi-racial coalition to challenge the power structure.
A different history?
Mr Kudzu has a dream. Wants to send Men(oh, and maybe a woman) to the moon-and beyond
That's what the police spokeswoman at the Cheney gathering said to me when I inquired as to if the republican party of Oregon had paid the bill the city sent them for the security at their August fundraiser.
Can a person be an anti-Zionist without being an anti-Semite?
Absolutely yes. Zionism is a political creed and must be treated like any other. One can be anti-Communist without being anti-Chinese, anti-Capitalist without being anti-American, anti-Globalist, anti-Anything. Yet, again, it is not always easy to draw the line, because real anti-Semites often pretend just to be "anti-Zionists". They should not be helped by erasing the distinction.
