I maintain George Washington had the right philosophy when it came to military establishments. I maintain the military of the USA today not only dominates foreign countries but it oppresses the residents of the USA also.
Why have anti-terrorism laws and measures generally targeted people of Mexican, Central and South American descent? For example, Operation Tarmac, targeting airport workers, has not caught a single terrorist, but it has caught lots of Mexicans. Also, why are terror-inducing anti-immigrant raids being conducted under the same pretext, targeting these same communities?
I just want to know why no one has made any mention of Dick Cheney's upcoming Portland visit?
Must read these articles concerning the repugs!
Oh wait, that's Secretary of State Colin Powell

<p>NEW YORK CITY--I fish 50 cents out of my pocket and the Arab man behind the
counter puts a newspaper in a bag for me. The front photo shows a rubber-banded
pile of U.S. bills being counted out by brown hands--$500 blood money to the
family of each Iraqi the U.S. admits to having killed. Most of the victims will
never be named or counted- -but in the photo you can make out the faces of the
dead presidents on the bills. I think of the slave-owning presidents and the
war-making presidents, and all the toil and exploitation around the world that
those bills represent,
Bush TALKS about being a "uniter," but it is obvious that Bush -- and the entire neo-con version of the Republican Party -- are dividers. In his approach to Nader, and in his selection of Edwards, Kerry doesn't just talk the talk, he shows us by his actions that he is a uniter. The reality is that BUSH IS A DIVIDER -- KERRY IS THE UNITER.
Study to see how you too can be a better Democrat !
9-11 commission members and news corps are toxic terrorists
Wow, I got to see this movie here in Olympia this evening.
Damn this is a mind blowing film. Michael Moore is the source of a lot of the film's dialogue and heart. The same is true for Noam Chomsky.
The film takes the viewer through a reflective consideration of the roles and responsibilities of corporations and the profit motive relative to the greater human condition. It makes excellent use of large corporate CEO types offering up their own viewpoints relative to their perception of the corporate community's impacts to society, the environment, and the greater interests of mankind that are above and beyond the profit motive.
This film is even more important than Fahrenheit 9-11 in that it discusses the root causes of situations that have brought us the Bush administration, and the Iraq war. I believe everyone should go and see this film, it really is an important and moving work.
A pretty objective review of f911. Moore is not one for the solution that many expect. I think his movie does make points this author suggest he does not make.
Without the social contract, we become wolves to one another. Rousseau's idea is replaced by Hobbes "natural order". The might is right delusion and the warrior mentality replace Kant's vision of eternal peace and the UN's passion to outlaw war.
I am looking for clubs to join.

Some things you have to believe to be a Republican today.
Tires' importance at the gas pump is growing as gas prices climb, with U.S. drivers' currently paying among the highest fuel prices on record, and tire inflation is playing a big role in the price.
oldie but goodie
I just heard that some judge has ordered the initiative pulled from the November ballot.
"I'm confused about how I should feel about killing," says Dubois, who has a toddler back home. "The first time I shot someone, it was the most exhilarating thing I'd ever felt."
Bush and Kerry are related, anybody surprised?
If 'AIDS really is a sexually transmitted syndrome (common cause -'HIV'- for old existing diseases) then why is there almost no 'AIDS' in Japan. Not one teen case ever and only 9 female cases in twenty years.

What are the implications for the future?
David Cobb let us down along with Dennis Kucinich.
A radical process of social transformation is indeed underway in Venezuela, undermining the old system, a formal democracy with entrenched class divisions that systematically excluded the majority in that oil-rich country.
ask them why they threatened to sue Mazama Forest Defense for trademark infringement.
I and millions of others have seen Byron York in a CSPAN "Washington Journal" interview a couple weeks ago saying that, whatever the torture methods used in Abu Ghraib and other US military prisons, "...it is, in fact, working." He's said it more than once. The first sentence of an article he wrote, shown on the same program, was "Torture? Whatever it was, it worked."
Where is the American news media? Where are the pictures? Who is responsible for this abomination? Torturing children in the name of freedom? Is this what we have become?
A tit for tat chess game
Long Live the ideas of Leon Trotsky
Some say a police state is coming, some say it's already here. Either way, the outlook is grim. Mr. Blair reveals a strong anti-anti-social bias in his recent speech as reported by the BBC -- link to newsvote.bbc.co.uk
Democrats are alarmed the film by Christopher Egan - who has raised more than $200,000 for Bush - aims to create a Watergate-style frenzy over a 32-year-old scandal in which Kerry's brother, Cameron, and an aide were arrested for breaking into a rival's campaign headquarters

Think Before You Cheer--Michael Moore is Making a Noose for the Left's Neck
by Shlomo Svesnik
On July 12, 2004 the Bush administration announced a proposal for a new Roadless Rule. The Forest Service issued an interim directive that will protect roadless areas for the next 18 months. There will be a 60-day comment period on the new proposed rule once it is published in the Federal Register later this week. The Bush administration has already exempted Alaska's Tongass National Forest from the Roadless Rule.
"...will things change at all after the polls close this November?
Yes they will.
Because we will...
...un-elect the entire government.
A Vancouver landmark is gone
By choosing between the lesser of two evils every four years, we have sunk to the bottom of a cesspit as a country. I, for one, am SICK OF IT!!! I am SICK of not being represented by my supposed "representatives" at both state and federal levels.
Second report of Break the Silence on holding the peace movement accountable.
As the Los Alamos National Laboratory (www.lanl.gov) in New Mexico halts much of its operations as of July 15, 2004, in an unprecedented, and open-ended, shut down, the open market for nuclear materials continues worldwide. Yet the supply of nuclear material is finite, if anyone cared.
If America can put men on the moon, surely it can devise a presidential election system easier to understand than the theory of relativity or even Dubya's "answers" at his last press conference. It's time to close the old Electoral College and start a new institution: winner by direct majority vote.
I was just wondering...
we're been tracking Townshend and his licensing of his songs to commercial dvertizers for 2.5 years now. . . .
It is too easy to get carried away with pessimism about the politics of this country, and caught up in sweeping condemnations and outrage, to the point of ignoring not only what is good about the country, but what must be fought for and preserved. "Too much radicalism" is its own worst enemy, potentially fostering cynicism and even paralysis.
