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?

by
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]

Electronic Voting Can B Improved and Better than Paper Ballots! What do you think?
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!

Bush trips over Abu Ghraib pronunciation
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.

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?

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.
