Why Does Fahrenheit 9/11 Pursue Conspiracy Theory Rather Than History? Because 9/11 conspiracy theory protects the Democratic Party, whereas historical analysis would implicate it in the criminal consequences of decades of collaboration between Washington and Riyadh as well as other unsavory allies.

. . . and talking about the issues rather than trashing and bashing the opposition?
What motivates solo women street performers? Why do they do what they do, and what makes them keep doing it? Even though street performing as a solo woman has challenges, it has rewards also. This article is about three solo woman street performers and their take on busking.
My continuous observation and research of the religious right led me to this article found in a recent issue of Sojourners, a Christian ministry whose mission is to proclaim and practice the biblical call to integrate spiritual renewal and social justice. The article gives a brief history of the rise of the religious right in this country. With the impending reversal of social justice, equality and rights in America, it is important to understand the role that this controversial group plays. ~Amadeus

Even if you are a raving idiot you have to wonder at the coincidence of Ridge's warning and threat - Al'Qaida is planning massive attacks against the US. With his boss dropping like hot lava in the polls, the Iraqui insurgents not helping by not letting up and the Democrats on one of their short lived upward frenzies, boy retard must have shifted into panic mode with the assistance of his god (probably the antichrist). In their constant contempt for the population of the country, they decided that 9/11 requires a refresher and will pull off another show of the century.

Serra Pelada gold mine, in the Amazonian State of Para, one of the main Brazilian gold producers, was bought by the US mining company Phoenix Gems, which paid 40 millions dollars to exploit 100 hectares.
The contract of an important part of Serra Pelada mine's shares, was subscribed last June 5th between a cooperative of "garimpeiros" (Brazilian gold searchers) and the US Company Phoenix Gems.
Who REALLY did 9/11...Was it Israel??
By the way, voting IS illegal in the United States, for an increasing number of people.
I am totally disgusted. WE cannot accept this or John Kerry and his poser friend Edwards. Where is the proof they have EVER done ANYTHING for the american people. All you have to do is say things in politics, where are the facts that either of them have fought for anything for US? Why just because Kerry is a republican, does the democratic party have to go along with him? Go back to your own party John Kerry, we don't want you here!!!!
Proof positive Hollywood seeks to try and pull the youth back to idiocy status. Check out the advertisement for Will Ferrell's new movie and make you own call...
If Voting Changed Anything, It Would Be Illegal. In the year 2004, will the Democrats save us all from the madness of King George II and the pupper-master himself, Dick Cheney? After four years of a President who was handed the office by the Supreme Court and the Electoral College without securing even 48% of the popular vote, progressives are touting the "Anybody But Bush" campaign. Millions of dollars and countless hours of people's energy is being expended to elect "Anybody But Bush". Could this energy be better spent?
With the support of Mayor Bob Ornelas, on July 7, Arcata, CA will be the first US city to consider passing a No Confidence resolution on the validity and legitimacy of US elections. This essay describes the origin, methodology and aims of the No Confidence Movement.
Unlike much of the work being done on the Left, Moore's is presented from within a working class vernacular and moral framework that is instantly recognizable and relatable.
A paragraph from the second leaflet
Keep on poking, prodding, and pinching the sleeping dogs, because it works. Every Indymedia article, Internet site, forwarded email and question has an effect.
A critical review of Fahrenheit 9/11. In particular, a critique of Moore's moralism.
Soros owned Harken Energy when Bush came on. Did he create Bush like the Bush family created Saddam Hussein? Sure, but Soros and the Bush crew were in the Carlyle Group together, so they're more aligned than the Bush crew ever were to Saddam.
Since the Bush administration appears to be totally perplexed on how the U.S. can disengage itself from the Iraqi guagmire, this plan hereby is being offered
Went down to the "eastbank esplanade" to watch and photograph the independance day fireworks last night.
Saddam is claiming that he did not authorize the gassing of the Kurds. Just like Rumsfeld and Bush are claiming ignorance of Iraqi and Afghanistan prisoner torture. Is Saddam's trial just a ploy for Bush's election year? Is the idea to distract us from his mess of a record?
since Michael Moore's newest documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" succeeds even in all of those states where "President" Bush actually won the election in 2000, we want to suggest Michael a new issue to write about. He needs a new "enemy" when Bush is gone, doesn't he? *wink*
Well, we need a massive letter campaign, because as some of us know, Michael is not too keen on dealing with the prison issue, even less with individuals, unless it is Mr. President.
Why take chances doing something really way out like "suspending" elections, when all you really have to do is "secure" them?
With hardly a critical word, the U.S. media has failed to realize that the nominee for one of the most powerful positions in the world is a prime suspect for the largest mass murder on U.S. soil. It is up to us to loudly complain about Porter Goss's nomination.
I believe it was someone on an indymedia site who said Disney might be releasing this movie--"America's Heart and Soul"--at this time as a response to Moore's latest film. That sounds plausible. But, if so, is it an effective reaction? Or is it too transparent?

I invite all Americans, whether staunch conservative Republicans, liberal Democrats, independents, progressives, environmentalists, small business owners, and corporate executives to join me in rebuilding America by electing a man of honesty, integrity and common sense, Dennis Kucinich in 2004. He is a man who will watch how our money is spent, and watch who is spending it for what purpose. He will set a goal of 0% unemployment so all Americans can work. He will provide all Americans with the right to high quality health care that is affordable. And he will restore the time honored trust of the doctor/patient relationship. He will spend American money on America, to rebuild our dams, our bridges, our roads, our national parks. He will restore the pride and potential of our educational system and give back to teachers the enthusiasm and dedication that they previously had in years past.
I truly believe that Mr. Kucinich is the only man capable of solving the Israeli/Palestinian problem. I encourage anyone and everyone who has an open mind to read and ponder his positions on all the issues of our day at his web site, www.kucinich.us.
I believe Americans are the most likeable people on the earth, and the most generous. We don't need to dominate, threaten, coerce, and control, badger, bully and bribe the world. Yes, there are some brutal dictators in the world but we can't declare war on the world, forever, and spend $50 trillion dollars to make it a picture perfect planet.
If we don't all come together and achieve Dennis Kucinich's goals we are "in a pickle". That's for sure.

How did the David Cobb/Pat LaMarche ticket receive the Green Party nomination? And what does it mean for the Green Party in particular and American politics in general? My conclusion is that the so-called "red states" Greens, by rejecting Ralph Nader/Peter Camejo campaign, diminished the Green Party's own strength in the "safe state" of California, ironically without helping the pro-war Democratic Party candidate John Kerry (despite the hope of the Cobb/LaMarche faction) in the most crucial "swing states": Ohio (20 electors/3.6% victory margin in 2000), Florida (27/0.0%), Pennsylvania (21/4.1%), and Michigan (17/5.1%).
David Reinhard, the Bush apologist and clueless NeoCon mouthpiece for the Oregonian is at it again. This is the person who, in an earlier editorial said he would be proud and happy to see his son die in combat (no opinion from the son on this one). Let the Big O know that a good documentary is another form of editorial expression; every documentary has a point of view - and, in the case of Fahrenheit 9/11, one that is more valid and better supported by fact than his cheap diatribe, laden with spleen and loaded words.
A move is afoot to supplant Alexander Hamilton's image on the very currency he helped strengthen with that of a recently-departed president whose main political achievement was establishing style over substance. Should we put Ronald Reagan's mouth (and the rest of his face, and for that matter, his hair) where our money is? For the answer, read on.

With so much attention on the Republicans' efforts to help Nader get on the ballot, I want to shine some light on the Democrats' efforts to keep him off.

I went to Fahrenheit 9/11with a bunch of people who knew each other from work--and there was some real excitement in the air. People had been looking forward to this, talking about it, wondering what they would see, and more: hoping that this film would really help change the direction of things.
FOX News, a propaganda outlet for the Bush administration, should be shut down for its violation of indeceny statutes. Because the regulator is a Powell, do you think he'll censor the network that broadcasts his daddy's propaganda?
Efforts by two conservative groups to help President Bush by getting independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader on the ballot in the key battleground state of Oregon prompted a complaint to the Federal Election Commission.

Michael Moore has lied to you, America. But not in the way many of his critics might have you believe. Moore's new film, Fahrenheit 9/11, has been heralded as a prophetic voice of dissent by supporters and as leftist, fact-twisting, conspiracy-laden propaganda by opponents. In reality, it is little more than a modest and fairly accurate re-presentation of what anybody with basic cable should already know. If Moore can be criticized for anything, it's not that his film goes too far, but that it does not go far enough. A fact, considering Moore's blatant and unapologetic political agenda, that probably has more to do with decisions made by the film's producers than its director.

This Aug., sex workers are being flown in from London, Seattle, CA...to work the RNC in NYC, while thousands of RNC protesters are also coming from outside the city to protest the RNC. Some sex workers are also RNC protesters. How do protest and prostitution interplay?
The only thing that the whore corporate media has not yet figured out is that by giving us a bit of the truth (such as the article below), they will expose themselves when they desperately try to paint the new 'Bush victory' in November. It should do more than just surprise most of us watching these polls carefully that the antichrist will once again end up in the White House next January, but then again, who cares? If they tell us that he won when it is statistically impossible for him to have won, Joe Flagwaver will just sit back and wait for cognitive dissonance to lull him to sleep once more...
