Throughout the 30s through the 70s, educational films were a mainstay of the American classroom.
Just how many soldiers are really dying in Iraq?
Show us some real policy changes.
Suppose Gore had not conceded to Bush, but insisted that all Florida votes be counted.
As we prepare for the one year anniversary of the US-led occupation of Iraq, it is critical to look back and acknowledge where the anti-war movement has succeeded and where it has failed.
As a movement, and evidenced by sites like portland imc, we consistently fail to see our accomplishments as accomplishments and instead focus on failures. This is not good for our resolve. I am quite guilty of only being critical and being a "downer".
But there are accomplishments, there are things that went well, and we need to recognize them.

The liars who led us to war
Surely you noticed the Joseph Rose report in today's THE OREGONIAN that
told of Jeffrey Beers alledgedly hanging himself, as have 2 others since
last August, who were prisoner's at State of Oregon prison. There is
something not quite right about this. Here is guy in for minor drug
possession charge, on relatively cinch-sentence, and he suddenly does a
"suicide". Much questions abound in this matter.
Now that the Democratic party bosses have effectively driven the anti-war vote into the ground with more than a little help from the corporate media that gave Governor Dean's campaign the red carpet treatment up until mid December while at the same time purposely ignoring Congressman Dennis Kucinich's campaign Governor Dean's campaign now looks more like a very effective con job
If the term "bullshit" offends you, then multiple your degree of being offended by a thousand times. That is the degree that having Bush in the white house as a representative of American offends me.
A natural age based die off would be preferable to starvation and disease.
I am so tired of cars biting at my heels as I try to walk across streets...I had a friend Beth, who had several tactics to deal with this, that included spitting, sharp rocks and walking over the hoods of cars in crosswalks...

I just happened to pick up Adler's book "Canaries in the Mineshaft" at Laughing Horse coupla months ago. Bought it used. Inside there are a number of excellent essays. One of them, originally published in 1970, is on the largely disreputable history of the National Guard. The essay, "But Ohio, Well, I Guess That's One State Where They Elect to Lock and Load: The National Guard," was written to provide background on the shootings at Kent State that year, but it might as well have been written yesterday since it is absolutely topical given the current discussion on our AWOL president.

The Oregon Criminal Justice Reform Coalition is asking people to contact Legislators. Interim Committees are meeting now and will be deciding what gets cut. Cutting prison programs may appear to save money, but what about the long term effects on recidivism and public safety?

I have been following the 'peak oil' debate currently taking place on a number of Indy sites, and I have been interested in studying the papers and reports written by the debunkers and critics of 'peak oil'. What I have found reminds me of the debunkers of global warming (bad arguments, not to hard to question or even refute). My criticisms of these critics follow below...
The absolute last vvestige of hope for even a semblance of democracy and, therefore for America as we were led to believe it was, just died with Dean's resignation from the presidential race. There is nothing that can be said as a palliative to this fact: the only option remaining for the few who will not sell themselves like prostitutes is revolution.

I am fucking tired of people in this Portland activist "community" deciding to speak on behalf every womyn. I am not every womyn, asshole!
With the defeat of Measure 30 here in Oregon, Citizens for a Sound Economy, which claims credit on it's web site www.cse.org for blocking tax measures in Alabama and Oregon, moves on to Washington State and Governor Locke's proposal for a tax increase. As one of those who voted for the defeated Measure 30, I wonder, who are these anti-tax campaigners from Washington D.C.??

Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU) is marketing their research and brainwashing the public by hosting a variety of community activities surrounding Brain Awareness Month. http://www.oregonbrains.org/outreach/baw/events/registration.shtml
One of these events will be a Neuroscience Research Town Hall Meeting featuring Senator Ron Wyden. The event will be held in the OHSU Auditorium, Saturday, February 21, 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Please join In Defense of Animals (IDA) for the meeting early, at 2:00 p.m., to greet attendees. IDA will use this as another opportunity to remind the public that OHSU's animal researchers need to have their brains examined to discover why they insist on wasting public resources by conducting wasteful research on monkeys and other animals. This event is free but if you want to attend the meeting, pre-registration is required. To register by telephone, call OHSU at 503-418-2515.

I have sent the following letter to every member of Portland City Council, and to my state and national representatives.
I urge you to do likewise.
Kerry maybe in trouble. BIG TIME.
Bush actually boasts of being a war president, apparently to diminish his chickenhawk image. Well, the voters have been forewarned by past experiences about what is to be expected if he serves another term.
It's time for politics in America, once again, and we all know what that means.
