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.
Here are two useful documentaries for activists: "The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear": and "Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire."
What if we could make energy out of every knee-jerk reaction around here? Heh heh! But seriously folks, the idea of Who Is and Isn't oppressed is crippling our potential at every turn, and that's quite convenient for the dominator mentality.
The Weapons Of Mass Deception have been located and
indentified in Bushington, D.C. (Dominion Of Cheney).
The investigation continues.
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.
where are the democrats going from here?
even though the casualties for u.s. soldiers are piling up in iraq, i was curious to see how they compared to vietnam. a quick rough calculation follows.
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.
Ethics and a Plan
You have to read this article to understand why I am so mad at this fucked up government. The one responsible for what took place on September 11, 2001 that took out 3,000 people.
Below is the text of the Family Steering Committee's "Final Statement", in which they spew out their approval of the official story of 9-11. None of it, of course, is a surprise. And it's all because the 911 Truth Movement didn't keep its eyes on the prize.
Looking up the definition of insanity in several dictionaries, it appears we have a country filled with insane people. HELP!!!
A look at a commentary article from the Oregonian
The debate over the "Salvador Option," a term in an of itself so chilling and inhuman as to recall the moral fitness of another first-world regime that weighed the "option" of Madagascar against Zyklon B.
Astounding Tsunami Pictures
Indymedia doesn't work like it used to.
Stay clear of sectarian groups such as India Development and Relief Fund (IDRF), Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), Sewa International and Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA).
As per THE SUNDAY OREGONIAN, under headline: ALOHA OFFICER HAD SOLDIERS
MISLEAD INQUIRY, COURT TOLD,we find that one of our area's so-called
"finest" has participated in orchestrated governmental lying. I don't
think that speaks very highly of him, nor his government.

NeoCon designs for the militarization of Indonesia will be greatly facilitated by the U.S. military, tsunami relief now being sent to there.
A response to Ex-Mumia Attorney
Whether the United States is doing enough financially to help the victims of the Asian earthquake and tidal wave is the subject of much debate around the world and at home.
The fresh-faced pundit, recently pink-slipped by CNN, is bummed that Iraqis aren't more grateful for all America's been doing for them, and suggests their ingratitude will likely be shared by the victims of the recent tsunami, what with so many of them being Islamic and all.
Answers to comments about the article.
Faux "News" (unfair and imbalanced yet again) lies twice in an article about the Portland and the upcoming vote to renew participation in the JTTF.
Michael Moore Just finished his acceptance speech at the People's Choice Awards, in which he dedicated the award to the Men and Women fighting in Iraq. He said we all live in a great country and we all love our country, and that it didn't matter if you were Republicans, Democrats or independents, that we were all Americans.
cops harrass guy on the way to protest for no particle reason..
Until now, the details, evidence, and personalities of all these nefarious characters have gone unreported. Now you finally have the truth before you -- how the United States government effectively shut down one of the most galvanizing movements for social change by stopping its leader dead in his tracks.
Today's O'Reilly factor news report , and my comments on his "Fair and balanced" commentary.
Getting through to the mainstream media about the J20 general strike and Bush inauguration protest is essential. Not one damn dime day seems to be breaking through already but we can and should do more. Find allies and true journalists in the mainstream corporate media and continue to forward messages to them in newer, less conventional ways.
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.

"Botox" is an innocent shortening of the words that describe what it really is: "Botulism Toxin."
Now that Electronic Jim-Crow has officially stolen the 2004 presidential and congressional elections it can be officially declared that the South has finally won the civil war. It took a 150 years for the proslavery, segregationist, white supremacist movement in America to accomplish the task but they finally did it.
another excellent valenzuela thought provoking read
Do not hang out with neo-cons. They're not called "cons" for nothing.

These predictions, based on Actual Astrology, are rather like a weather report. They relate how things will be based on the information recorded by the inventors of this art. No matter what your sun sign, these are the things that will be. Yours is the obligation to figure out what you're going to do in light of them.
Examples: Iraq, Burma, Sudan, Palestine/Israel

Who's the worst Democratic challenger in recent history? Cast your vote
Can somebody tell me how they voted yesterday in the Ohio certification debate?
If the United States were to look into a mirror right now, it wouldn't recognize itself.
"Of the estimated $40 billion the United States is expected to spend on intelligence this year, experts say at least 50 percent will go to private contractors," says Tim Shorrock
Despite the betrayal by conservative Democrats, Kerry and a slimy Democratic leadership, the successful protest in Congress delaying confirmation of Bush's electoral win is a major progressive victory, permantly staining Bush's second term with the stench of illegitimacy.
Libertythink puts on their tin foil hats, the only way to shield yourself from disinformation, corporate media lies, and government propaganda, it's not just for aliens anymore. Someone send foxnews the memo.
Between the tsunami, Iraq debacle and democracy hanging by a thread in Congress (Thank you Boxer! Wyden- put your vote where your mouth is. Wu- sorry I worked to get you re-elected) you'd think there would be some real news to talk/print about. The top story seems to be about an unemployed plumber who cornered a bank robber in Kalama.
Sufi Islam returns the peaceful mystic to the center stage, the militant Wahhabist fundamentalist becomes a distant memory..
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.
Woman can use herbs and Menstrual Extraction to control their own fertility safely at home (up to 7 weeks into pregnancy) without having to ask for permission or having to face a bunch of fundamentalist crazies when going to a clinic.
The Senate today voted 74 to 1 to reject the objection of Ohio's 20 Electoral Votes.

For a long time now, millions of Homo sapien colonies have been very disappointed in the brain members of their colonies, especially in the last 8,000 years. They have been crying out, by way of stress and illnesses brought on by stress, "Why have you abandoned instinct, sight, sound, and smell, and placed so much more value on what is heard?"
It seems strange that the 'gestapo-type' laws which were recently passed in the Patriot Act II are not being exposed to the American public by organizations who have the money to air national commercials.
Written long ago about another imperialist war. Still true today.
The Empire has built several permanent detention camps
(prisons)abroad........as well as camps set up through-
out the Empire, for detaining "domestic 'terrorists'".
Andrea Yates verdict overturned
The outgoing Secretary of State says he's shaken and horrified by the tsunami's destructive power, yet has nothing to say about the far greater destruction and death wreaked in Iraq by the U.S. military that he was so instrumental in sending over there. The difference isn't the degree of destruction and death, it's what caused it.
Read at the risk of your own sanity. This CBS article is just ugly enough that I cannot remain silent.
... And a subtext of this posting is just one more reason to distrust corporate media.
