We Owe The Existence Of A God To Cows
Patriarchy as defined by the encyclopedia Wikipedia: "A patriarch (from Greek: patria means father; arché means rule, beginning, origin) is a male head of an extended family exercising autocratic authority, or, by extension, a member of the ruling class or government of a society controlled by senior men. The word patriarch also denotes any of certain high-ranking bishops in some hierarchical churches; see patriarch; the word patriarchy in that case refers to his seat and domain."

What did Bush mean, and what did he know? "When enough people die."
A few weeks before the terrorist attacks, Bush made a remark that may have been a clue to what was coming. People need to know what he said, and they need to know what he meant. The news media didn't report the comment and have been unreponsive to questions about the reply he made to a reporter on live TV. My letter to Michael Moore follows.

An Act of God or Government?
in today's world, we must consider all possibilities. after 9.11 people were loathe to belive that the government had anything to do with the toppling of the twin towers; now it is common knowledge. could it be that the weather was manipulated for a political means, say, genocide of muslims?

Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars
Behold a pale horse - William Cooper(perhaps some are familiar). That book contained many "theories", although the author claims facts, being former navy intelligence. In any case, within that book was a document that was supposedly found in an ibm copy machine bought at surplus(1986), the name of the document was, "silent weapons for quiet wars" dated 1979.

A 30% Rise in Campaign Costs to Achieve the Same Turnout Rates
60.5% of the eligible electorate -- which was 55.8% of the voting-age population -- voted in 2004; 59.5% of the eligible electorate -- which was 54.7% of the voting-age population -- did so in 2000. In short, it took a whopping 30% rise in campaign costs to achieve practically the same turnout rates as 2000.

Declaring war on the homeless
The homeless of Portland are beginning to face an uphill battle, the likes of which has never been seen. Two recent ordinances have been passed that criminalize homelessness, and a shooting downtown has added to a public conception of a "threat" posed by the homeless in downtown Portland. When corporate retail executives survey the area, they are not looking at real human beings. They are seeing potential threats to their precious profits, and are using their influence within the city government to try to eradicate these people from their environment.

Holiday season is no fun for political prisoners
Yes, it seems obvious but in this time where many of us are with our
family, warm in our homes and having our family shove gifts at us, it is
important to remember that things are not like that for the political
prisoners and prisoners of war in the U$A. While this list focuses on
support for Jeff 'Free' Luers, that is only to focus on what little
resources we have to help Jeff, not in denial of the situation of the many
political prisoners in american prisons.

City council votes unanimously to restrict single beer sales in NoPo
Ok, I don't know how to take this, but PDX (by unanimous vote of the city council) is going to ask the state to restrict sales of single bottles of beer. In North Portland. Only. This is just my opinion, if you want facts there is a link to a recent Oregonian article. As usual, my typing and spelling sucks, get over it.

The man who our piously patriotic Republican Party would amend the Constitution to allow to be president offended California nurses recently after postponing state legislation that would require an increase to nurse-patient staffing ratios. Responding to protestors, Gov. Schwarzenegger referred to the nurses as "special interests" that don't like him because he's "always kicking their butts." He later added, "but I love them anyway."

Bush Has No Intention of Working With Demos
While speaking in his acceptance speech about bringing both parties together, Bush has already shown total disregard for the feelings of the elected representatives of half the citizens of this country by renominating the same 20 names for justice posts which were rejected during his first term. In his mind, "mandate" obviously translates into "carte blanche."

Religion Is A Legal Tool, Not A Spiritual Tool
Activists and Anarchists who still believe in ghosts, gods, spooks, and spirits, have no idea that the issues in today's civilization, that they fight so hard to resolve, all began as a result of Old Testament religions. Every single one of them. Protesting an issue, and at the same time, praying to a Jewish god (or Allah) to help resolve the same issue, is like trying to "have your cake and eat it too." What you worship is what enslaved you in the first place.

The Great Christmas Truce of World War I
WWI is perhaps my most morbid curiosity where history is concerned. Though one could argue that the beginning of the industrial military complex began with the American civil war, in which major advances in repeating arms, rifled barrels, and cannons were made, the carnage itself was not industrialized until what has come to be known as "The Great War."

Are you under the assumption that the Army, Navy, Air force, and Marines, own the equipment that they use? Is the soldier who stands guard someplace in the world, under the illusion that the gun he has, belongs to him or to the military branch he is a member of? Unless he paid taxes at sometime, he cannot claim any ownership of that gun. The gun belongs to the taxpayers.

The Dark Side of Sex
I noticed recently that the activism world of Portland has been getting pretty cool lately. Protests against Bush are getting organized, community building has been great over the last year with all sorts of inspiringly sustainable projects in food production, alternative fuels implementation, reused wood and earth constructions - Liberty Hall seems to be getting a face-lift, Food Not Bombs fare has been great on the nights when it's available... Not that everything's so amazing great, every victory has numerous corresponding losses these days, but they seem pretty good for the end times of empire... But I realized also that it's been a while since I've heard anyone talking about verbal consent, or the instances of sexual assault that were tearing up the activist community in Portland and Eugene just a year and a half ago. It's great that I haven't been hearing of any further assaults in that time, although that doesn't mean they haven't happened - I maybe haven't heard or others are maybe keeping silent. Certainly sexual assault continues in society at large, but it could be considered a small blessing that it hasn't been afflicting the activist community.

Old Testament religions are about legitimizing land ownership, taxes, the exploitation of natural resources, social stratification, and wealth generation; not about spirituality. Civilization is the domestication of humans by other humans.
