Why is KPFK still failing to thrive ? (tags)
KPFK is more than intimately tied to it's umbrella leader Pacifica, whose latest Executive Director has been 'fired' by some of questionable authority and who refuses to accept the factionalization that predominates these radio stations operations. But no actual factual information is ever available, not locally from KPFK or most other sites on line. Mostly the usual malicious attacking anyone else blurbs are found online. Why do we who pay dearly to subscribe, to be members, to sponsor KPFK programs [tho we may not chose to pay for all pgrms presented there, if given any free choices ] . We, outside the sacred halls of radio station know NOTHING from our local sources of KPFK or Pacifica 'news' and information Finally 1 site just went up, see below. Just recently a new site went up that allows no comments but is intended to take a side in the national malicious arguments on line about who runs the Pacifica PNB [nat’l board] and petitions are included therein. see http://2014.supportkpfa.org and also maybe tour thru facebook https://www.facebook.com/notes/tracy-rosenberg/turning-off-the-water-and-firing-the-lawyer/10201760444914193 to learn a bit more about what is dramatically occurring in Pacifica’s Berkley offices. To search out what may be factual or actual from what are marketing-promotional or negative-attack-ads blurbs takes hours of time and reading and is uncompensated ‘work’ just to know where even our KPFK dollars are being spent or set up to be wasted. And other than a midnight interview that was not heard by the great majority of KPFK listeners gave a hint of what is happening to Pacific, about it’s Executive Director, and the future of the whole set of radio stations affiliated and dependent on some structure that is stable and honest…if possible.

"No, dont discuss that's old news !" + "not now, not any more, that's the long ago Past...." they often say so easily & repeatedly. What is wrong with this distracting atmosphere we are breathing in daily ?

PROP. 8 DEMO. OVERVIEW OF SILVERLAKE TO HOLLYWOOD AND HIGHLAND 11/8/08 (tags)
Something really strange happened in the street last night. I don’t know if it was due to the “whiteness” of the crowd, to the fact that there is money in the gay community which potentially gives it power, or maybe it's the fact of the incoming president elect Obama with his promises of “something new”. I don’t understand and can only guess. But the fact is ….the cops backed off last night, and in all scores of demos, anti-war protests, pro-immigrant rallies, and every other kind of social-justice activity I have covered and participated in I have never seen that happen.

(I feel it will be an ex-military person who has seen checkpoints blow up before and knows exactly what it is they are doing.)

U..S. exports fantasies and weapons systems (tags)
In fact, 20 of our top 25 arms clients in the developing world in 2003 were undemocratic regimes or governments with records as major human-rights abusers. All too often, U.S. arms transfers fuel conflict, give weapons to human-rights abusers or fall into the hands of our adversaries. Far from serving as a force for security and stability, these sales frequently empower unstable, undemocratic regimes.
president bush to undergo major testing. (tags)
Millions of american people are starting to notice a very un american president and vice president these days. Every day more and more americans are starting to wonder if these 2 guys are even fit to run our nation anymore. The things they do sometimes seem a little crazy and often illegal. So some of the american people are hoping to find a couple good shrinks and maybe a few good lawyers to see if what they are doing in washington is really legal or illegal, maybe even a little crazy. There is a simple challenge to washington to pass a bill, its a good one, its a simple one, and it's a fair one, lets make it a fast one, say march 23, this will give them several weeks just in case their secrataries are slow typers or they forget how to spell there names or they are slow readers or something you know washington isn't the brightest city in the world and the bill is 1 page. Lets call it bill #4404150555 until they give it an official # Any man women or child that joins the military reserves the right at anytime they feel unable or unwilling to pick up another weapon or harm another person to trade in that gun for a guitar. The government that tought that child how to use that weapon that kills will be responsible to provide teachers to teach that soldier to play an instrument that heals so he may attempt to heal some wounds that he and his brothers may be feeling or creating. We would only do trade with countries that provide their soldiers and citizens the right to decide if and when they to have the right to lay down their guns and persue a life with more meaning and one worth living. Submitted by Jimmy the weed Zender american citizen living in Geneva on the Lake Ohio, maybe Bono would help me submit this:) John Mc Cain, wheres the love for your democracy and military men? Kennedy live up to your good name, help america find real democracy. We all owe them this people, they have all givin their lives so we may have this right, use it, lets do this for them, now! Lets "nickname" this "the bill we can all aford to pay" And if washington don't wanna foot this bill, they better all start hiring lawyers, oh they already are lawyers! Well, they will need more lawyers and they will be paying them out of there own pockets, now they would not like that, would they? this bill is good for america! We will ask some of our brightest stars to both sponser the bill and donate time to teach these young men and ladies to be highly skilled and very creative soldiers for life and healers. And a few big names would make things a lot more encouraging. As believers we must become less killing and more filling if we want to get to drink from the cup of life, God help us all! Now on the streets we call the first part a blood test, on march 23 the results of this test will be in and we will know if he has american blood in him or muslim blood on him, anyone will be able to decide for themselves too cause everyones got brains to decide right? This is a great place to draw the line and see if they want all americans to have the opertunities to be the best people we can be or just to do be un or under edjucated and easily manipulated so we can only keep doing all there dirty works. You know I am starting to woner if that is Christs blood or muslims blood on our hands, and if we don't stop now we may be suprised. Now if he fails the blood tests, we will have due do further testing now the second part we will be testing his brain, if we can find it. This test is known on the streets as the test for dummies it is 10 stupid questions, itis designed for stupid people who can only come up with stupid answers. the results from this test should show us if he has any common sense or in some countries it is called "sanity" left or not, we really need to know. Now if he fails the first 2 tests we better take the 3rd one for him, we will all be tested. And we must vote every republican out of office in november, except the ones who fought for our citizens and soldiers rights and signed the bill and only if they get it passed. This will be "nicknamed" america's blood test, this test will tell us if they sucked all the american blood out of us. And in november you will have our test results too, God help us all, please! Now this test is very real and millions of americans are taking notice. Every day is a test, and every day we are tested, let us pass this one. Hey old man, get out of that rocking chair and do something, and students and children teach your parents well. I know they will be telling you how stupid we are or crazy the plan is but you be the judge, is this test easy? will they pass? sign? or turn their backs on our soldiers and us too, us the people they promised to serve? You know it's not just iraqies and our soldiers dying but also every soldiers parents do, their children, brothers, sisters, and every one of us too look inside, the scars of these wars are in all of us no matter where we live. Demand they pass this bill into law, just the way it is let them add nothing to it and make sure it never expires, and don't let them screw it up. Also this governments been taking all our dollars I think we deserve a little change, don't you? tell them earn the money they take and sign this bill fast. Send letters to washington cnn and everywhere, tell family overseas take the test too and send your answers to Lou Dobbs at cnn.com by july 4 incase we have a lot of empty seats to fill in november it is right around the corner. And be sure and find out what test your person in washington prefers to take we are giving them 3 very easy choices you know 1 Pass this bill now (easiest choice just sign it) or 2 take the test july 4 (anyone who failed the first test) or 3 test us in november, do not underestimate our hunger, you only feed us lots of elephant shit and the whole world is sick of that. Rock and Roll Everyone!

They started the war, we’re just going to see it’s finished.

An anti-state communist perspective on the war (tags)
This is 2003 article about the Iraq War 2, just before it started. It's from Anarchy: a journal of desire armed. It's unusually prescient in its predictions of how the entire war will go. I post this because the journal has been criticized by some anarchistists as "primitivist", and Anarchism has been derided by the Left as everything from chaos to disruptive and unthinking. Liberals stereotype anarchists as young fashion victims, implying they are shallow. These are simplistic stereotypes at best, and fear mongering at the worst. Articles like this one below, I hope, give people pause to consider the relevance and usefulness of anti-state, anti-capitalist critique. Remember, this article was written before we invaded Iraq. So here goes. -- Just Another Anarchist
