The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing that the government's definition of compost include sewage sludge. They will supposedly "treat" it to put in bags of pellets to sell as "compost" to unwary gardeners.

"Scientists say sun was once cold, but then it got really, really hot."
Haiti should be a sobering lesson to those who entertain the fantasy of libertarianism. If the state is the ultimate source of evil, then what is turning all these boys into butchers?
Baby Bush goes after social sercurity
I can't help but notice that frequently in commentary posted to this site, individuals dismiss others as not being truly progressive, truly leftist, or truly revolutionary. Candidates are not just called to account for differing opinions, but are often accused of outright complicity with their opponents. Or in many cases are accused of being worse than their opponents.
I'm voting my heart.
Was flipping the channels and happened upon Charlie Rose on PBS. Now, I know better than to expect anything but sycophantic knob-polishing from Rose, so my finger hovered over the channel changer for mere seconds. Imagine my shock and awe when I actually heard the unfamiliar voice of dissent, logic, and... could it be... reason coming from my television-thingy.
This article makes a lot of sense to me so I am posting it

[Originally published in Marxist-Leninist Newswire. Revised and edited, February 25, 2004] Friday, October 05, 2001 On April 22, 1980 members of the Revolutionary Communist Party [RCP-USA] went to the Pico Gardens housing project in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles in order to distribute party information and recruit people to join their planned May Day march coming up the following week. According to Los Angeles Times reports, the RCP was distributing leaflets which said "No Work, No School for May Day" when a crowd of approximately 50 youth confronted them. The shouting match that ensued quickly escalated to violence when alleged youth gang members turned fire hoses on RCP members and demanded party members leave the project. At first they turned project fire hoses on the RCP; and then attacked them with fists and knives. Two party members were stabbed, Damian Garcia and Hayden Fisher. Garcia died at the scene from multiple stab wounds to the abdomen, chest and neck. Fisher was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition with a stab wound to the back and later recovered.

hoping for a rational discussion re: IMC coverage of Dem Primary. Thank you Portland IMC for posting a few kucinich features, but I'm still looking for answers re: the rest of the IMC network. So far there is very little response at other IMCs.
This two part series will explore just how the Southern primaries may well hold the defining moment of the 2004 election cycle.
The past decade has witnessed an unrelenting effort to shift the costs of

Last month, the Portland police mobilized several squad cars, motorcycle officers, and bicycle patrols, in an effort to harass a monthly bicycle celebration called Critical Mass; primarily making sure that participants' lights were functioning properly, while offering inaccurate legal advice. That same weekend, there were at least five shootings in Portland, leaving two people dead and six injured. The Portland Police force continues to demonstrate their criminal negligence and failure to curb violent crime as they repress the Constitutional rights of those that they have sworn to serve and protect. The recent Police Chief replacement of Mark Kroeker with Derrick Foxworth has resulted in no noticeable improvement of Portland Police policies.

From Ross Perot's hometown, Ralph is calling on all Americans concerned about the fiscal recklessness of the Bush Administration to respectfully request that Ross Perot speak out on the massive federal deficit, predicted by the General Accounting Office to go far into the future if not checked.
Alfred Lilienthal posed the question of what the cost of supporting Israel was to the US 40 years ago, when the price tag for Americans was low.
Today the answer is knowable and daunting the figure comes to at least $1.6 trillion through the end of 2002.
Most people don't understand why the Middle East is plagued by violence. It is because Israel has stolen vast quantities of land and property from the Palestinians beginning in 1948 and continuing today.

Today our national leaders are meeting to discuss decency in the corporate media. In other words, while a US-induced global conflict rages, they're talking about boobies and nasty words. And they seem to be doing it with a straight face.
The developing countries encounter will take place next February 26th to 28th in Caracas, Venezuela. It will count with the presence of the presidents of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile, among others.
Today, the talking heads and call-in talk shows blaze with debut of Mel Gibson's movie The Passion. Yet how many people are capable to relating the message of the cruxifiction to human condition? Millions of people have been persecuted for their beliefs and convictions throughout all of human history - not just one person who two thousand years ago "died for our sins".
