An argument against the continual depiction of American soldiers as "heroes" by the corporate media, when they are engaged in illegal, immoral wars for fallacious reasons, especially wars that leave a radioactive legacy of cancers and deformed children like the present wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Remember the "Nobody for President" and "None of the Above" write in campaigns of elections past? This election, take a lesson from Globalization: automate and outsource.
The following is an excerpt from a historic talk by Revolutionary Communist Party Chairman Bob Avakian, soon to be available on video and DVD from Three Q Productions.
A couple of years ago "Skeptic" offered some comments and raised some questions about an article that appeared on this website concering a Falun Gong candlelight vigil at PSU. At the time, I wrote a long comment, sharing my thoughts, but for some reason could not find that page again. Now I can, and I posted it back on that article. It is also here below. "Skeptic" - I hope you are still checking this website and will see this. Thank you.

Commentary on economic control
. . . Having come forward with no concrete evidence, it invaded. Having invaded, it produced nothing to back up its claim. This all seems calculated to produce fury among Muslims and to provide a wealth of material for an antiwar movement. But why?
Was listening to Rush today and he was plugging Portland Indy Media like crazy.
ARISSA, the self-proclaimed radical organization co-founded by Craig Rosebraugh the author of "The Logic of Political Violence" are mad at "fucking liberals" for voicing out against their march? Arissa left the nature of the march intentionaly ambiguous with the intent to intimidate the Mayor with political violence (Craig Rosebraugh defines political violence as "actions harming humans") and you wonder why people would boycott your march.
After seeing the latest episode of ABC's Nightline, I strongly suspect that the latest alleged Zarqawi "terror" attempt in Jordan is a complete fiction. The recent arrests and confessions of alleged terrorists 'linked' to Zarqawi described a massive planned attack within Jordan.
This world really needs a new feminism, and the editors and contributors are right on to ground feminism in social movements dealing with real life and not just the simulacra of representational politics. But saying that all issues are women's issues because women are involved or are leaders misses the point.

Discusses the creeping Dictatorship of the NWO and how the government is using "terrorism" to implement their evil agenda by calling all these "Terror Alerts" and searching trucks on roads to get the American public ready to accept new travel restrictions.

What a difference time makes.
In late breaking news, IRS commissioner Mark Everson, in an attempt to quell the growing Income tax resistance, answered claims that the IRS refuses to be candid about what law makes an American man or woman liable for the Income tax. With the skill of a Harvard trained lawyer he answered questions with pinpoint accuracy.

Most recent computer scam - bet it catches a lot of Bushies!
A favored tactic of the police state is to divide the people and then play them against each other. Often, we are pathetically easy prey for this. Sometimes, we do it ourselves.

I live in SW Portland for now and have to drive to Hillsboro everyday to go to work. I don't want to own a car anymore. I want to use public transportation and a bike and maybe be part of a car cooperative. I am amazed at how hard it is to make these changes happen.
I got involved with this march first because I wanted to get to know someone I was attracted to. Later I was shocked and sadened by the lack of solidarity shown by folks I have alot of respect for. Today while marching at one point I said "this really sucks". Now I feel good that no one was hurt besides the TOKEN (police inside joke) Mike D arrest, and that we actually got to the mayors house.
Lookout for Joe Luiz
I attended both events, and appreciated each for what it was. I liked today's a little better. But I am upset about the people who tried to sell us all out.

fox 12 falsely states...
The Bush pick for Ambassadore to Iraq, John Negroponte of Iran/Contra "fame" speaks volumns about the "rule of law" Bush loves to talk about. Where is the "rule of law" when criminals are placed in such high levels of government authority and power? Bush acts more like a "Mafia" Don than the head of state.
IMC live web-radio protest coverage lacking tremendously.
Notes on the speakers.
Solidarity with Venezuela
A home for children with hiv forces otherwize healthy and symptom-free children to take medicine that makes them violently ill for medical research.. this website tells a story of a concerned aunt who tries to get her neice and nephew out of the place where they surgically install feeding tubes in children who refuse the medication. Even after having the tubes installed, many of them take several nurses to hold them down to put the medicine in the tubes. Mostly wards of the state, these children are being tortured to test new AIDs drugs.
I was clickin' around indymedia.. my connection is slow so i'd read one thing while another loaded. I can't find the link to the article that origionally posted this articile but its worthwhile to repost it.
why the divide?
At the very end of tonight's Nightline (which I only catch when channel surfing), Koppel showed video footage of the coffins coming in to Dover which have been so controversial of late. He mentioned that George Sr. was the one who halted the display of coffin photos and video footage after he was embarassed by a screen juxtaposition which showed him making a speech as coffins arrived at Dover in a split screen.
"Don't Mention the Dead"
The United States is commiting war crimes right now in Iraq, meanwhile calling a popular uprising '200 guys from syria', drug dealers, thugs etc. The Iraqi governing councel has 'officially' reduced the number of Iraqis the US coalition killed in Fallujah, saying only 18% were civilians. We need to tell people what is really going on in Iraq, and hold this government accountable. This is ridiculous!
New technologies root out evil-doers...AND get them running!
In the second installment of our three-part series on May Day, Seven Oaks will address the international significance of the workers' holiday.
Kim Jong Il is responsible for the horrible train accident in Ryongchon in North Korea.
The IPR is (supposed to be the link between the police and the city). Civilian review boards are crucial. Public inquest is crucial. But where's the justice? WE ARE THE PEOPLE! I think the city could give a shit about the citizens. So they limit the IPR behavior. It's our jobs as citizens to show the city that we will not stand for their laziness and lame duck behavior. Take to the streets. I will be there if you ask me.
Words from Kucinich...
Grand Jury: black skin, (unknown) cocaine in blood, and hand in pocket = JUSTIFIED DEATH! apparently even though SERY had no idea about the contents of Perez's blood, the fact that Perez wouldn't leave the vehicle in less than 24 seconds and the claim that Perez had a hand in a pocket is reason enough for Sery to shoot Perez THROUGH THE HEART!
Pentti Linkola is one of the few ecoradicalists who have broken past moralizing objectives.
At American Legion Post #1 veterans and the Portland Police Bureau honored officer Jason Sery last Saturday as Portland's top cop, an award handed out to one officer every year.

Like it or not, this is how western religion views nature. It sickens me.
EDITORS' NOTE: The following is part of a series of questions and answers that followed a talk given by Bob Avakian, Chairman of the RCP, last year. It has been edited for publication here (and notes have been added).
Yesterday, around 11:00 a.m. in front of the downtown library, I was approached by a petition gatherer for Tillamook 50/50. I read the text of the petition, but could not discern if this was clearly an initiative I wished to support. I asked him for a URL and he gave me a flier with this address:

Will the US be under martial law by June, 2004? That is the impression some are expressing after witnessing a recent episode of Nightline (4/7/2004), with Ted Koppel. On this particular program Koppel is host to Richard Clarke, former Reagan officials Edwin Meese III and Kenneth M. Duberstein; former Clinton official Sally Katzen, author James Mann, and former Bush official Richard Clarke. The subject matter is named The Armageddon Plan.
"Being responsible about the environment is not some goo-goo, do-gooder, silly notion that you embrace once a year on Earth Day," railed Kerry to a Florida crowd. "It's important to life itself."
