This is what America IS. It may have been Thomas Jefferson or Abe Lincoln or any illusory past you want but Abu Graib i now what best describes Americans. So let's get to know ourselves better! Here are some articles for you all - send them to the assholes that want this war, to the racists, to the redneck hillbillies in congress and in the White House. Spread around the info on the new Americans and what we have become - the putrid puke of the planet.
NEW YORK — Before helping to launch the criminal information project known as Matrix, a database contractor gave U.S. and Florida authorities the names of 120,000 people who showed a statistical likelihood of being terrorists -- sparking some investigations and arrests.
OSU grad teaching and research assistants deserve better than last place, lowest wage, highest fees, longest hours, least benefits, and at least deserve an employer that doesn't delay, deny, or resort to breaking the law when bargaining with the grads
Purity of Arms
The IDF serviceman will use force of arms only for the purpose of subduing the enemy to the necessary extent and will limit his use of force so as to prevent unnecessary harm to human life and limb, dignity and property.
Robert King leader of the portland police association began his reign in november of 2001. Through the following years he has activly stood in the way of any progressive policy change in the Portland Police Department and refused to punish cops that murder. In order to confront his evil behavior we need your help!
From Melbourne's largest newspaper. The American people didn't know its troops abused prisoners in Iraqi jails. Ignorance. Officials who knew pretend they didn't know. Hypocrisy. To excuse the perpetrators, parents of soldiers say their kids were forced to follow orders. Obedience. Read on...
what can i say.
New anti-Kerry Bush ad makes astounding claim.
Gas prices are up, and some think its funny to watch Americans spend their spare change at the pump, but watch out what you wish for, you might just get it.
solidarity with the Venezuelan Revolution
They vow to reduce the price of gas, but don't dare to mention peak oil.

Humphrey came to Chicago with the nomination virtually sewn up -- he had between 100 and 200 more delegates than he needed, as well as the support of blacks, labor groups and Southern Democrats. However, he still felt his nomination was in jeopardy.
Leaders blame industry and fail to account for peak oil or promote conservation.
ABC news reported Monday night (5-17-04) that Ahmed Chalabi, the Pentagon's primary source for much of the "intelligence" on Iraqi WMDs, had effectively been "fired" by his Pentagon buddies.
I voted for Bush in 2000, and by and large I haven't regretted it. If I had to do it over again I would vote for Bush over Gore.

This year provides the modern social order with its first opportunity to demonstrate not only its technological prowess, but also its remarkable adaptability. the world came to a famine catastrophe from those record breaking rains last fall. It takes many months to respond to a famine disaster, and the coming crisis is not a disaster for which there was no warning.
You mean to tell me ... you didn't know that our Republican/G.W.Bush luv'in (i.e. major conflict of interest!) buddies over at DIEBOLD and ES&S own the Oregon Elections Division voter verification software and Mail-In-(paper)Ballot tallying machines?
You thought that Oregon elections were safe and secure from the companies responsible for the nefarious private corporate clutches of the likes of DIEBOLD and ES&S?
You thought that DIEBOLD and ES&S only made "Touch Screen" voting machines? The same Touch Screen machines that are "alledgedly" (so far...) suspected of electronically rigging past elections and devoid of any form of voter verified paper trail?
Well, guess again ...
It looks to me like he won!
It's a classic story, "we've worked here all our lives, gave them every thing we had. But there moving the factory to a third world country where the labor is cheaper, ware are we going to live how will we eat." These have become more common words it the past decade as large corporations have started to "downsize" in order to "save" money.

The fallout from Abu Ghraib

[The greatest ally of an insurgency is the occupier's arrogance, his linear thinking, and his top-down decision making structure. In this as in so much else, America's glittering military juggernaut is even dumber than its British predecessor. The Abu Ghraib prison "abuse" scandal — which is really a torture scandal — is the unmistakable death-knell of the occupation. No matter how long it drags on, it can't possibly restore Iraqi production to 3.5 billion barrels per day if the occupiers are perceived as depraved, sadistic racists. But surely this sort of behavior can be pinned on the guys who held the broom handles? No, this week Seymour Hersh reports that Abu Ghraib is a transplant of DoD's most cherished black operation, for which the approval (and perhaps even the planning) came from the top of the Department and maybe even higher. As the United States grabs at all the petroleum it can steal, Russia and China position themselves for a role in the post-Bush energy landscape; China trying to avoid encirclement, and Russia trying to compete with a politically fragmenting OPEC. -JAH]
Americans must demand to hear and see the full spectrum of the human cost of war.

363,486 Registered voters in Multnomah County - 160,586 Ballots cast = 202,900 People in Multnomah County who don't give a shit how Metro, the County, or the City spend their money. Good job, give yourselves a round of applause...
in the old days of American TV, the only time you'd see Old Glory was around 3 a.m. when stations had their sign-off message.
haven't watched TV, at all, for decades . . . that is, until the past few months, with Iraq, elections, etc. -
on all sorts of shows including Saturday Night Live, news, sitcoms - it seems as though an image of the Stars & Stripes appears in one incarnation or another every 2 minutes or so (whether in the form of advertising, a street billboard background scene, artwork rendition, superimposed logo, scrolling ribbon, etc.)
is this FCC policy?

The answer to the Palestine question is a very easy one. Getting the Palestinians to ask the question is the difficult part.
The Oregonian has hit a new "low" in its recent editorial regarding gay marriage.
Bush and Kerry compete for hawkish positions on Latin America. Meanwhile, Alberta's premier apologizes for Augusto Pinochet...
Remeber last year when Bush visited the youth job skills training place in NE, talking about how great the place was and how well it worked, and then the funding was cut.
Well, same shit, different state. This time it's a manufacturing plant that closed and laid off 1300 workers, meanwhile the owner gets a huge tax break from Bush.

Yesterday I decided to go to an "up close and personal" meeting with Howard dean in order to give him and the democratic party a message. I arrived into the room at PSU where he was standing on a stage and answering questions from the crowd the last of which I remember was "when are you going to have your radio show." when he finally got off the stage and started talking to the people I made my way trough the mass of autograph and picture takers and got in front of him. He shook my hand and I told him "it's been bothering me how the democratic party has only been focusing
Israel's Democratic Operatives in the U.S. are Preparing to Pick Up and Run with the Bush War.
1 day before the election and Mr. "I will be a better Bush" Kerry shows his GIANT mug.
let's face it: a real possibility is that:
a. bush will find a way to hold onto power
b. he will declare martial law
c. a draft is started and americans are forced to work for homeland security and go to war
Not much discussion here of the judicial choices for tommorrow's ballot. This is where a local vote really could make a difference.
Is it weird that Oregonlive.com has *no* mention of Kerry's visit today (as of 10am), and that portland.indymedia.org doesn't have it on the calendar, either? Whether you support Kerry or not, it seems like the news about his visit is being suppressed.
I think the reason that anarchists are so put off by liberals is an understandable one.
These are the Final Days!!! (shudder. gasp.)
Even if you don't really like any of the other guys running for Mayor, send a message by voting against Francesconi!

Popular support is absolutely essential for the success of guerrilla warfare and torture is a counterinsurgency tactic utilized not just for interrogation purposes, but to intimidate the population supporting the guerrilla fighters.
