There can only be one explanation for the grimaces on the faces of Cheney and Rice as they listen to the State of the Union Address--they are either trying to "out serious" the Democrats (Nancy Pelosi must have to pee real bad, cus she keeps squirming in her seat) or they are sponsoring diarrhea medicine for big pharmaceutical companies.

How Can Americans Be So Stupid?
If you've traveled abroud much over the last several years, it's likely you heard that one. However, it is more than just having voted for Bush or choosing to nibble on "freedom fries." If you try to really engage Americans, even educated ones, you start to believe that, as a whole, Americans really are stupid.

Klamath Buffett's PacifiCorp sued for polluting Klamath River
This toxic algae bloom in PacifiCorps reservoir is the worst in North American Lawsuit is the first step in Riverkeeper's effort to restore the Klamath

YREKA, CA- Klamath Riverkeeper sent a 60 day notice of intent to file a lawsuit today against Warren Buffett's PacifiCorp for polluting one of the nation's most important and controversial salmon rivers, the Klamath. Klamath Riverkeeper's lawsuit asserts that operation of the Iron Gate Dam hatchery has resulted in repeated violations of the Clean Water Act and is just one of the ways that PacifiCorp, as the owner of the four dams along the Klamath River, is destroying the River, its salmon runs, and the coastal fishing economies of the California and Oregon Coastline.

Portland Carpool to the NW Climate Justice Summit in Seattle, Feb 2-4
There's plans underway to get a carpool (or caravan?) together from Portland to go to the NW Climate Justice Summit in Seattle. PLEASE let me (brian - at - mountainrebel.net) know if you might be interested in joining us.

The conference is Feb. 2-4 and will be focused on the youth movement to stop climate change and the dirty fuel (coal, oil, etc.) industry.

More info on the conference here: see  http://www.ssc.org/states/wa.php

Keynote speakers are to include Alaskan indigenous activist Faith Gemmill (see  http://www.globalexchange.org/getInvolved/speakers/163_events.html); Daniel Serres who has been working with anti-Liquefied Natural Gas campaigns happening around Oregon and Washington; and Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels (creator of the Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement)

ALSO: they are looking for more panelists for a panel on Saturday who can talk about work they have done on fossil fuel related campaigns (ahm, folks who went down to Desert Rock???) as well as facilitators for 1-hour break out groups for the anti-oppression workshop.

Government Found Guilty of Martin Luther King Murder in Federal Court - 12/8/99
Undisclosed conspirators for the governments of the United States, the State of Tennessee, and the City of Memphis were found liable for the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. on December 8, 1999, in a federal circuit court. The federal government never appealed the decision. The mainstream media in the U.S. never covered the assassination conspiracy verdict, even though the implications of the story were greater than Watergate. The family requested a subsequent independent investigation to be set up by President Bill Clinton (who has since established office in Harlem), but he refused the request.

benefits of social gathering
tonight i attended a peak oil meeting where we talked about the message. as it happened, the bitter cold (my fingers are still quite numb as i type) had prompted our hosting church to shelter the homeless for a while. This is important for two reasons, 1. the nature of the discussion, end of cheap energy will have a direct impact on homelessness and how we as a collective society will choose to take care of every living thing on the planet in equal proportioning of resources with rights to survive. In the past, animals were slaughtered in ritualistic fashion and many praises were laid upon the lifeforce of the kill which sustains the lifeforce of the gardenkeepers, who in turn, manage carefully the natural systems that keep the whole planet in balance. holy shit, right?

Many scientific organizations, activists, etc., have joined the push to clean up school buses...The first steps in this cleaner school bus awareness campaign are: 1) Replacement of the oldest fleet buses, 2) Retrofitting of the older models, and 3) Anti-idling policies.
