Obama’s Lies About Iran or What he was "hired" to do. (tags)
"Iran’s nuclear power capability is used to keep us frightened beyond all reason. That nation’s domestic turmoil wrought by last year’s disputed presidential election has also been used as proof that Iran is a terrorist state, or a “state sponsor of terror” or whatever new terms can be invented to make Americans believe that war is a necessity."

Atheist speaks at Montclair church (tags)
Atheist speaks at Montclair church: Addresses censorship and church-state separation violation in Rancho Cucamonga February 22, 2009 MONTCLAIR, California -- Dan Barker, influential atheist and co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, addressed a full house today at the Monte Vista Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Montclair, a quiet community on the western end of San Bernardino County known more for its shopping mall than as a bastion of religious tolerance and freethought. One topic on the minds of many in the audience was the recent controversy surrounding a FFRF-sponsored billboard reading "Imagine No Religion" in the nearby city of Rancho Cucamonga. Despite the foundation's contract with the billboard company to display the message for a month, the sign was censored after a mere five days. Legal action against the city is pending.

ROUGH SAILING FOR THE VETERANS EQUITY BILL IN CONGRESS? (tags)

Garcia expressed dismay over the failure of Democratic Party Speaker Nancy Pelosi to present to the floor of the house HR 760 or the Veterans Equity Bill before the memorial day weekend. JFAV learned from different sources that the reason for the untimely delay was the strong opposition from the “ blue dog” democrats. The blue dogs are the fiscally conservative democrats in the congress. The fear is that they might vote with the conservative Republicans against the equity bill.. ‘

Immigration Policy: Send Us Your Poor, They Will Wind Up in Iraq (tags)
They are coming by the millions from all over the world. Let them come here. Let them find that there are not enough jobs. They will find the military to be the last resort when their welfare is cut off. And let them acquire Gulf War Syndrom (radiation sickness from uranium munitions).! It works just fine in the minds of the neo-cons.
A Message from the Chairman (tags)
Maybe not Howard himself, but fearful Democratic Party leaders are putting the screws to those in Congress who want to call Bush a criminal or to call for impeachment.
The only way that today remains practicable is to observe carefully, with minuzia and patience, that has been - but, only, in order to find that it would have to be, or, in alternative, that is it. No eruditism is more acceptable.

COUNTRY JOE AND THE FISH! (tags)
These poems were actually songs of protest from the 60's psychedelic band out of Berkeley California, Country Joe and the Fish. The Fish produced some of the greatest protest music of that period, and their infamous "Feel Like I'm Fixin To Die" song epitomizes the dark humor, anger, and hope of the 60's antiwar movement. The lyrics offered here were of course written about America's war against Vietnam, but the words are timeless and easily apply to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. If you don't know this band... do yourself a favor and find a cd by them.
The CIA, the Miami mafia and terrorism against Cuba in December (tags)
NOW, more than ever, I am convinced that there is a reason for everything that happens in life, which can explain it or provide an answer, even though, in order for that to happen, some time has to pass or a succession of apparently disconnected events are eventually linked together. When dawn broke on that December 23, 1963, ...
The Democrats don’t deserve our support (tags)
There is no reason to assume, as many do, that a Gore presidency would have avoided war after September 11. Clinton oversaw UN-sponsored sanctions against Iraq that led to the deaths of more than 1 million Iraqis, and U.S. warplanes dropped bombs on Iraq almost daily during his time in office. And Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998, calling for the U.S. "to seek to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein." Clinton’s Secretary of State Madeleine Albright admits in a recent Foreign Affairs article, "I personally felt [Bush’s new Iraq] war was justified on the basis of Saddam’s decade-long refusal to comply with UN Security Council resolutions on weapons of mass destruction."

Mass Media Mind Manipulation and the World of Illusion (tags)
The wealthiest men of our nation are in control of our education system. Our schools teach curriculums created by the Ford Foundation, Carnegie Endowment, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation. While President of the Ford Foundation in 1954, Rowan Gaither explained the Foundation’s mandate: "… we operate in response to directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the United States so that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
'I simply don't believe the whole thing was a lie' (tags)
"In the Iraq debate, my conscience was overruled by loyalty but I doubt I'd vote the same way again. The sole reason I backed the government amendment was because we were given very clear indications there were weapons of mass destruction and that these could be used against neighbouring countries. As far as I'm concerned, that was the only legitimate reason for going to war.
