WHEN TERROR IS JUST FINE (tags)

Now, suppose the Chicago gang kidnapped a couple of policemen and tried to ransom some of its members out of prison. This would cause a huge response, but would that response include the Illinois National Guard bombing the city’s black ghetto areas, indiscriminately killing hundreds, destroying homes and businesses, and imprisoning tens of thousands by not allowing normal contact with the city? Would the government say it is up to the people of the ghetto to get rid of the gang?

1001 Lies About Gilad Atzmon (tags)

I am delighted to say that my views are well distributed. My books are translated into 17 languages, my papers are highly circulated as well. I contribute regularly to many left magazines both in the printed media as well as online ones. And yet, I have never seen an argumentative piece against any of my writings. No one has ever dared challenge my philosophical ideas. Instead of doing that, they label me. They call me names, they misquote me, they lie and they are very quick to believe their own lies. In other words, based on their responses, they are Zionists and they behave like ones. This page is dedicated to my bitterest opponents. It is an open list of the different labels that have been attached to my name. Each label is followed by my comment. This page is a glimpse into the world of Zionist ugliness.

a post-'normal' booke review: chellis glendinning on recovery from western civilization (tags)

this review employs two main elements: orthodox "texting" and as well, permitting myself to art into another direction than perhaps previously anticipated. incorporated into this post is image, non-blunt points, rectangles, and other lines, along with 'marginal' commentary. All of this certainly cuts down on the verbiage and gets to "the point" (and allows for more broad input from those whose spirit just really ain't oriented to 'composing' formal ideas of text, re: "book reviews"). Lastly, this way allows people to leave *traces* of their spirit in a less mediated way.

Anybody But Hahn? A Mayoral Convention for the Animals (tags)

A "Few Bad Apples" or "The Bad Seed" of Circumstance? (tags)

Countless studies have shown that external factors are highly predictive of so-called "moral" behavior -- people are generally conformists, blind followers of authority and highly influenced by circumstance rather than character and values.

Election 2004 Coming UP... Is Anyone Fit To Run? (tags)

Why has American academia turned anti-American? Why should anyone be embarrassed at being white? What's the big deal about a long-abolished slavery issue? Is anyone other than Ron Paul or Tom Tancredo fit to run this nation?

FREE MITCHELL CROOKS NOW (tags)

Anyone remember the guy named Mitchell Crooks who shot the original video of police brutality against Donovan Jackson?
