Oregon's Mail-In-Ballots "safe & secure" in the computer hands of DIEBOLD and ES&S?
http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0828-08.htm What?

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?

What?

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?

What?

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 ...

Jurassic Park, Pseudo-events, and Prisons:
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]

American Flag Image Quota On Network TV??
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?
