The way to stop police brutality 27.06.2003 15:19
Police Officers Should Wear Pastel Colored Uniforms and Drive Golf Carts
There would be a lot less police brutality if police officers wore pastels instead of black or blue uniforms and drove golf carts rather than cruisers and SUVs. Let's encourage city council to pass a resolution that police officers must wear pastel colors and drive golf carts.

Coalition Casualties and how they're reported
Has anyone else noticed that the reporting of Coalition casualties has changed drastically in the last week or so?
Articles on BBC and other mainstream news sites are now reporting things like "a dozen U.S. Soldiers have been killed since May 1st." -or- "About 20 Coalition troops have died since Bush declared the end of hostilities at the beginning of May.". A couple of weeks ago the numbers were much higher!

Early Signs of Fascism
'I felt there was a new global political development that needed to be named, and I began thinking in the context of what I call "global fascism," which is something different from the traditional forms of fascism that have existed. The effect of that was to suggest that resistance to this new global development in the United States poses a second kind of danger that is more in keeping with traditional understandings of fascism.'

As the impact of 9/11/01 wanes, we will see whether we can connect the dots, renew and deepen our understanding and resolve.

Along other paths and at a great variety of sites as well will the depth of our desire for liberation be manifest.

They'll be built by companies like Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR), Bechtel and Booz Allen Hamilton. Companies that are effectively wholly-owned subsidiaries of the US Department of Defense - or vice versa.

Shop until the Tow Truck Comes
"Many private American households have exhausted their credit limits..The average debt service of a US household has reached a record of 14 percent of disposable income. Altogether the private debt of American households rose to an historic high of $1.7 trillion.. If US citizens put aside nine percent of their disposable income at the beginning of the 90s, the savings rate at the end of the decade was slightly above two percent..Very different signals are given to American consumers because no one knows the seirousness of the situation."

GE Corn Associated with Major Reproductive Problems in Pigs & Cows
Bt corn has been associated with up to an 80% reduction in piglet birth rate on mid-western farms. The calving rate decreased by 20 to 30% when it was fed to the cows on one farm. On another farm the spontaneous abortion rate in the cows was very high when they were fed Bt and Round Up Ready GE corn. The Agricultural Minister from Denmark was informed of this negative effect of the Bt corn on pigs last week. Denmark is being pressured to take GE corn from the US. Denmark is willing to pay for the segregation of the corn and the companies say they won't do this.
