All things considered, the fascists deserve
a party in New York this August.
So check it, we're not gonna catch Osama Bin Laden. Let's face it. We're not even really trying. Michael Moore certainly would agree with me. That's why it's time to get a new enemy.. and who better than this one-armed, one-eyed AND muslim (gasp!) cleric to blame now.
Fear & Panic Election show
The powers that be have suggested ways to recognize suspicious individuals . . . possible *gasp* terrorists. Maybe the answer is easier than we think. How about a Bake-Off?
This essay is a reflexive commentary on the current war in Iraq and the US military's abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib.
A re-review of Paul Verhoeven's 'Starship Troopers', adaptated from a Robert A. Heinlein novel.

how banal can the advertizing mind get?
you got to see this, so I screen captured this little animated ad
I wrote this for the Nader Oregon email list. I was trying to come up with a bullet points platform that could be used on posters and flyers. Feedback is welcome.
The Department of the Interior evidently is in charge of prisons in Iraq. Does anyone knowmore about this?
On today's democracy now (http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=04/05/26/150221), Amy Goodman hosts a debate where she requires different standards from David Griffin and his detractor, Chip Berlet. The slant is in favor of Berlet. I, for one, wonder why.
Thanks so much for providing this space! And more thanks to the people that use it!
Why do the armed forces advertise? Are they selling a product?
The only way a second catastrophic terrorist attack will benefit George Bush is if he declare Martial Law
Remember when American GI's were sent "hate email" using the return address of various anti-war activists? Is anyone getting "return mail" like mine?
Does capter 9 verse 11 state the destruction of evil in the middle east by an eagle?
Al Qaeda May Have Operatives in U.S. learning to Quilt.
Subject + May or Might + Have Operatives + in U.S. + Verb + Some Scary Action = worthless speculation...
PDX needs to get some solidarity and some momentum!!
James Goldsborough columns outstanding. Beat all big shot East Coast pundits hands down. Corporate Media full of cowards and puppets. Corporate opinion pages dubiously slanted.
Eric Idle has written and recorded a charming little ditty called "The FCC Song" and is offering it as a free download. It pokes fun at the Federal Communications Commission, the recent indecency fines, mentions Howard Stern, Clear Channel, Attorney General Ashcroft, President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Haliburton, Enron, Martha Stewart, Condoleeza Rice, the EPA, Alaska Oil, and more.
this is just too funny
Some reflection on what was ACAN! This is a reflection from one person involved, and is definately open to interpretation. First off, I want to let people know what prompts this, since ACAN! didnt necessarily die gracefully. Not long ago I was out socializing with people and the topic of ACAN! came up. This was socializing with people that werent involved and did not know that I had been involved, so it was a pretty good go around.

Who is Guilty of Prison Torture?
Dale Allen Pfeiffer
[Certainly the United States possesses formidable economic and military power. But the rhetoric of "sole surviving superpower" is inflated and a bit desperate. Our military is overextended and poorly run. The hard power of its amazing machinery is used to squander the soft power of our global prestige - we shoot civilians and they hate us. We attack only the most defenseless opponents and have little tolerance for casualties. Our economic power is based not on our exports - ours is the largest trade deficit of any nation in history - but on our appetite for other people's imports to the USA. If our creditors were to pull their money out of their American investments, they would successfully crash our economy and drag their own down with it - our giant market for their goods would disappear as the dollar collapsed. The basis of our economy has shifted from agriculture and manufacturing to services and finance. Our trade balance is positive in only a handful of industries, so we pay for our vast consumption of imports by issuing bonds and printing dollars up from nothing. So long as dollars are the only currency that buys Saudi oil, that arrangement can last. But if the United States continues on its present course of lawless, merciless belligerence, then the rest of the world may become willing to endure a period of economic depression, and even a terrifying world war, for the chance to pull the plug on American hegemony. - JAH]
Notes on the employer/employee paradigm
before the iraq war spins further out of control, former president george h.w. bush should sit down his son, george w. bush, and level with him about the real history of u.s. relations with iraq, iran and israel's likud party-even if the father has to admit to illegal and unethical conduct in the process.
It is important to get this info out to the masses that intend to vote for the present resident. Another term is going to send us into a civil war where many of us will not hesitate to take after the rich and the Republicrats in general.
The White House has announced (news, wire services) that the U.S. will pay to have Abu Ghraib prison demolished and replaced with a new maximum security prison, and in addition will construct an entire system of new state of the art prisons throughout Iraq.
Is there anyone willing to fix the problem of no co-op housing in Portland?
This year some 3,000 children will be diagnosed with brain cancer in America. This is a virtual death sentence for the children if treated with orthodox treatment, radiation therapy. My interview with Dr. Burzynski documents the FDA's 20 some year suppression of his treatment Antineoplastons. It's the same old story of the $$greeeeed$$ obsessed pharmaceutical companies controlling American medicine
Veterans applying to become cops get priority. What can we expect when these "American" soldiers return and leave the military and join "police" forces across this country. These combat soldiers acting as cops in Iraq will bring their violence to our streets.
I'm starting to think that bush doesn't care about even keeping a front of wanting to do anything for the people or not being a corporate puppet.. because he's planning to either have his election machine buddies rig it or declare martial law. the 2nd possibility is another post all together, but in this post I describe my idea for possibly saving our deMockRaceY, with an electronic voting system that any citizen with a pc and internet connection could use to verify the results of an election.
This is my personal idea I've been churning around for a while. Its not a copied and pasted repost, I'm typing this in the craigslist window for Portland viewers to see. I really think this could save our democracy but have no idea how I could possibly hope to implement something like this. I know that the forces that be would resist, but if enough of the people knew.. and like me and my friends I've told about this agreed that this was a great idea, I think we could easily implement it by Novmeber.
I really want to know what people think and will be eagerly checking for comments, or email me.
I tried to submit this before, it never appeared (checked two hours later.) If this is a repost, I apologize! I really want to know what people think of this!
Jim Francisconi is the corporate money monger.
Tom Potter is the ex-police chief.
How do we define fascism?
There's a reason that our Founding Fathers called "giving aid and comfort" to our criminal-enemies (foreign criminal-enemies) TREASON (Article 3, section 3;U.S.Constitution)....and it's because using our troops and weapons to accomplish the Prisons/Communes/Plantations/Concentration-Camps that International Ideas of Law Have Always resulted-in (and reprovably still do) is an abomination to LIFE and law-itself......
'Its best use is as a doorstop' Brian Whitaker explains why a book packed with sweeping generalisations about Arabs carries so much weight with both neocons and military in the US
CARLISLE, Pa., May 24 (Reuters) - Two rehearsals for his prime-time speech on Monday were not enough to keep U.S. President George W. Bush from mangling the name of the Abu Ghraib prison that brought shame to the U.S. mission in Iraq. During the half-hour televised address, Bush mispronounced Abu Ghraib each of the three times he mentioned it while announcing U.S. plans to tear down the infamous jail and replace it with a new facility.

Masters and their sorcerer's apprentices
Last night on the Simpsons' season finale, Mr. Burns took over all media outlets in Springfield, but Lisa held out by publishing an indy zine out of her garage. In the end, however, the joke was on both concepts of media ownership.
The pictures are finally beginning to trickle in: Iraqis in hoods and chains dangling electrodes, dead civilians, dead soldiers. At last, we begin to see the real cost of war. Now. When it's too fucking late.
Universal prayer this evening- as Bush starts speaking let us pray together that Bush experiences spiritual enlightenment on national TV. ....
Rumsfeld's great flaw is also the great flaw of the Bush administration. It is partly, but not totally, comprised of lies, ineptness, arrogance, ruthlessness, and ideological extremism. But the greatest part of Donald's flaw is his utter inability to feel or fathom human suffering.
many people have asked about the origin of a quote from Henry Kissinger regarding military men, which came from Woodward and Bernstein's "The Final Days" (1976). Here is the complete paragraph--and for context, the one following--excerpted from pages 194-195 of the second Touchstone paperback edition (1994).
Battle of the war mongers
Bill Clinton has been blamed by his detractors for just about everything from curdled milk to genetic mutations. But might there be a more recent president whose own record of misdeeds puts Clinton's to shame? Read the following for why it just may be time for Clinton critics to quit caterwauling.
According to most polls, millions of Americans continue to look favorably upon President Bush. For heaven's sake, why?? For the answer, read on.
Why are so many Americans oblivious to their country's arrogant, sometimes brutal behavior, actions that are so easily recognizable to the rest of the world? For the answer, read on.
This article speaks for itself
This is the story of one man's resistance to evil. From our vantage point of almost 40 years ago later this simple act of standing up against injustice may seem like a normal everyday occurrence for a white privileged male in the south. But it was an act of courage. How many of us, coming from our place of comfort would give it up so that others would have peace, justice and equality?
Irish Culture going down the toilet
As Michael Moore's new film 'Farenheit 9/11' becomes the 2nd documentary in 50 years to grab the highest award at the Cannes film festival, we shouldn't be awed by his genius. We should ask why we didn't see any of this footage on the nightly news.
America won't vote for an Asshole, just ask Bob Dole!
Newspapers, Magazines and Broadcasters all over the world are saturating the world with pictures of prisoner abuse from Abu Ghraib. Story after story floods the public with details of the abuse along with pictures of naked men in various poses and horrific situations. To the Muslim this is sheer torture. It seems that the Liberal Journalists seeking to use the photos to undermine Bush are actually playing right into the hands of those who took these pictures for their psychological operation.
He's still a "material witness"
