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.

The Imminent Market Crash and Depressing Economic Collapse
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).

a question raised about article that's slipped to page 2
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?

Anti-Semitism - When Is It Real And When Is It "Crying Wolf'?
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.
