Slavery Still Legal In Many Places
--- When an environmental disaster strikes, such as the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and resulting tsunamis on December 26, 2004, many of our species will sit and wait for food, water, and shelter, and even die when it does not arrive on time. They have been falsely trained to believe that they are truly helpless, except for prayer.

The 'Black Book' of U.S. Imperialism: Ward Churchill's Roosting Chickens
Todd Gitlin, Paul Berman and assorted intellectuals of the "decent left" have earned their keep arguing that anti-imperialism is nothing but an echo chamber of nihilism, oedipal rage and tacit support for whomever the governing class declares the enemy. Once upon a time their kind derided the Communist left as window dressing for the gulag; now they argue with parallel duplicity that anti-imperialists are shills for "Islamo-fascist" death cults and suicide bombers. As the gate-keepers of acceptable dissent, that is to say "none," they rarely take time to note what it is, this America, they've declared their loyalty to and what it is exactly the "anti-Americans" oppose.

Is Al Qaeda Just a Bush Boogeyman?
Peg Legged Zarqawi Terrorizes Iraq Looks like the "power of nightmares" is finally being given some air by the LA times. Now I hope the CIA will not only give up on bin laden, but come clean on Al-qaeda too. Maybe they can make something up new for us, so we don't have to make them look dumber then we do. It's our own fault, we voted for these fools...or did we? Looks like the jokes on us.

There is much truth to see if you can stand to look. You have to be willing to be wide awake and observant to survive what is headed toward us. You have to be organized. This is not the time to stay in bed and dream. You have to be willing to take action no matter how much you feel you will lose. You have to be a person who is respectful to others but aware of what humans can be like during a cultural meltdown. Rather than looking at the stars, you should be focused on the events of the last year that have just taken place.

wyden is a scumbag
look at his voting record. it reads like he's looking for a bush appointment. he's enjoyed a 'progressive' mask in this state for too long.

his statement is set to play to us so we think he's still the same ron wyden his image has portrayed, but his vote, as many many others he's cast, shows he's truly just another scumbag working for the neo-cons.

this is his usual tactic. vote one way, then make a statement saying he plans to work to reform the very thing he just confirmed.

fuck wyden, I don't care if bill o'reilly is running against him next term, I'm voting against him.
because there's no difference when it comes to the actual voting.

The difference isn't the degree of destruction and death, it's what caused it.
