All Kerry's campaign handlers need to do now is throw him in a tank with a goofy looking helmet, film him riding around in it, and it'll all be over with. The Dems need to stop putting up these dull speakers from Mass. as presidential candidates. Barak Obama in 2008? He's good looking, not a priveleged white guy and everybody seems to like him.
Bush administration screws the elderly again.
Even Project Censored has failed, utterly failed. It has taken the coward's way out, only mentioning 9-11 in an indirect way (as the Widow Mariani's 9-11 RICO suit against Bush and company) when there is patent evidence that Bush did 9-11 in so many other blatant areas that it would take a (Democratic donkey's) ass or a (Republican pink) elephant to be that blind to it! --- Sure, vote fraud ranks up there, so does depleted uranium. And privatized though state funded nuclear reactors are there! (damn bastards, that has to be stopped. that one did get by me.) Though where is mention of the lies of the main floodgate--September 11, 2001--that unleashed these things in a twilight world, hey, do you think that that can spare a mention more than simply a 'lawsuit' or something? Have some scruples, Project Censored. You really have blown it. What else have they left out? --- Put in Nazi Germany for the U.S. or America when it is mentioned below. It reads more comprehensibly.
Quietly growing like a cancer on the distant northern fringes of Portland, locally-owned Columbia Sportswear has made good in the sweatshop-manufactured sporting-goods distribution business. Huge profits and a bright future have not trickled down to even their American workers, who labor on the banks of the Columbia River much as if they were sweatshop workers themselves. Meanwhile, the company has been very careful to keep the roots of their successful business model out of the press, and have generally avoided any association with the word "sweatshop".
Right-wing blowhard Lars Larson wants Nader on Oregon's ballot so bad, he's crying foul against Secretary of State Bill Bradbury. A principled expression of concern for voters' democratic rights? Not really.
I personally believe bypass or not he will be running the Bush reelection campaign from the hospital room while remaking Hillary as the caring wife, and leave John Kerry to flap in the wind...
Just loved this one!
If Nader had public support, he would be on the ballot now.
Although they say they don't, Portland police appear to be engaging in classist profiling and harassment of poor and homeless people. (What a surprise.)
I find it very interesting that someone from a internet company who claims to go after fraud would have internet users doing scans on home users.
sabotaging the real Democrat in the race...so called "progressives" are regressives
how do you file a complaint against and officer???
Details several real life Acts that have come about as a result of the fake terrorism of 9/11/01 that threaten the safety, security and sovereignty of all American citizens.
We still have our work cut out for us.
Lets all watch the "LOTR" parody, empower ourselves
and get right to it. We're not just fighting Bush,
we're fighting En Ron Hubbard, Diboldly, the Heritick
Foundation, and patRIOT acts I and II!!!
In the 2000 presidential election, George. W. Bush named Jesus his favorite philosopher. We might be wise to take him seriously and compare George W. with J.C., his philosopher king.
Critical Mass arrests A27
I am looking for people coming back from the RNC to interview re their personal stories...
Now suppose the Democratic Convention had been used to announce the bringing of impeachment proceedings against Bush and Cheney, as Nader has been calling for for months. Suppose they had threatened to hold every Republican Congressional Rep and Senator accountable in November if they opposed the double impeachment.
A comment on Bush's coronation speech
While warriors are eating babies we can be glad we got religeon..
Some people know the truth.
The people have taken back their voices from the lying, conniving, manipulating, profit-driven, corporate fucking media. I've been glued to indy coverage for days on end, and I thank you all!!!

Has the GOP become the party of grand old farts?
Concerning the 9/11 Zogby poll, I started thinking, if the RNC wants to focus on 9/11, then maybe someone covering the convention should represent the newly reported alternate view of roughly 4 million New Yorkers. So considering that Michael Moore is writing for USA Today this week (strange I know, but I believe his coverage has been good), maybe he should bring it up. Will he? I have no idea, but hell, I can send him an email anyway, and plea with him to address this. No harm done there. If you've got the time, maybe you should to. My personal letter follows:
Ugly ironies in Arnie's put-down

With Legalization of 'COINTELPRO'-styled official attack, challengers to status-quo must adopt the techniques of a *resistance of consciousness* and *mass-jiu-jitsu*, or continue to be completely dominated.
I tried to tell people you were being tortured in Portland, but even the Indymedia people have abandonded you.
American democracy, which has taken a pummeling the last few years, is up off the canvas and has gotten its second wind. Come November 2, it will knock the power punch-drunk Crawford Chump so far out of the ring, he won't know what hit him. For a blow-by-blow, read on.
When Muslims won't cooperate, we torture them, even in Portland
President Bush is trying to force American ideals into Iraq, a land in which they are clearly not welcome--at least right now. An examination of history shows the folly of Bush's policies and suggests a more patient, thoughtful approach to the Middle East.
Let us examine that question, the answer may surprise you!
A report sent yesterday to a mutual friend in Belgium, who forwarded it on to this left coast activist
For those of you who are unfamiliar with "Latte Liberals"; a Latte Liberal can be found just below a Limousine Liberal and just above a Kerry Klod on the Vomitometer. All three currently compose the larger group of people called "Kerry Kowards" who are miserably salacious miscreants and myopic, heart-sickening horrors to all who are unfortunate to encounter them.
...but he forgot to mention why the Soviets were in Austria when he was a boy. They were there because they had successfully repelled the NAZI led invasion of the Soviet Union...
Democrates don't want to hurt John McCain's feelings.
In need of local resources for printing activist materials from signage to pamphets!
If we're going to truly neutralize the Right Wing, as Mark Conlan promotes in the feature article of August 2004's Zenger's Newsmagazine, we're going to have to understand their techniques, and the broadness of their grip. The following html page gives a limited, yet crucial insight into just how many ways the wool is kept over our eyes. Includes well-known Left institutional analysis as well as more autonomous analysis and persons with direct experience.
Truly Fantastic Job!!
Wall Street Journal, today
Go ahead, sing it out loud!
The truth shall set us free.
I would like to make a statement.
The struggle against oppression is not easy. Today I read the many posts
concerning racism, and in an effort to continue Portlands dialogue on the
subject I would like to open up a discussion.
an, ongoing, campaign determining the 'right to sleep'
It's as if we were on a runaway train headed toward a precipice, with the mercenaries of the Republican and Democratic parties battling for control of the engine, and us, the passengers, hanging on for dear life to keep from being thrown from the train. Will we gain control of the locomotive before it's too late?
Take it for what it's worth... http://dc.indymedia.org/media/all/display/20793/index.php
Will the revolution spread from NYC?
quotes by seasoned social challengers for those daring to pursue radical culture and its excellent gifts
i'm listening on pdx indy radio to the press conference that United for Peace and Justice just held in NYC. They felt the day was a fabulous success. And it's true that a march of 4-500,000 people is impressive. But the organizer who was speaking was psyched that the march was so "festive". WTF? Why is it that liberal organizers in the U.S. are always seeking events that are "festive"? What, exactly, are we supposed to be "festive" about? The deaths of so many Iraqui children? The dissolution of civil liberties here in the U.S.? the continued destruction of the environment by globalized capitalism? The tenacity and cruelty of racism? The increasing heavy-handedness of the police state? I know it's no fun to mope around all the time, and i ain't suggestin' that. But this emphasis on "festive" is, honestly, shallow, and insults the millions (even billions) around the world who suffer as a direct consequence of U.S. policies.
But i think i know what UFPJ means by "festive"...
As shit heats up, those claiming to want "radical change" would do themselves well to have a serious understanding, in order to protect themselves from the usual toolings of dominating paradigms (mainstream and "alternative").
PDX indymedia is carrying information about the protests to the world. I am grateful to live here. Thanks to you all who are doing this! MSNBC and Fox carried the protests for only a few minutes when the dragon float was on fire, then quickly abandoned them. C-Span is giving great coverage.
What Are You Waiting For?
As the Republican convention comes to New York, the media once again goes hysterical over the threat posed by that greatest of all bogeymen, as the anarchists once again bring their special brand of ruinously destructive chaos to the streets of what must be a terrified New York City. It is worthwhile to review how anarchists have always been regarded as the most dangerous of heretics, even in times long past, and so not much has ever changed and truly there is nothing new under the sun.
