Ft. Hood Shooting Staged (tags)
There is no need for the military as it exists solely to murder the people of the world to steal their resources, usually oil, so as to maximize the profits of the oil companies and munitions companies. Thus, the entire illegal attack on the people of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is staged, and American troops want to come home. This means a scapegoat is needed to build support of more war. The shooting at Ft. Hood could not have been done by one person with the weapons used.
Mt. Hood Tragedy - Is Bourgeois Press Causing Belief in Rescue Miracles? (tags)
Little has been said about the wisdom of their decision to attempt to scale one of the tallest mountains in the Cascade Range during the worst time of the year for such an adventure. I realize that the families of the victims are holding out hope that their loved ones will be found to have survived the hellish conditions they encountered this week; I do not wish to add to their suffering by publishing this article. It is in the interest of preventing the loss of lives in the future that I present this piece, as my research into this tragedy has turned up some very interesting information regarding the quality of information available to the public regarding weather conditions in the region, and the facilities available to those who attempt to scale these very dangerous peaks.
California Clients Fight Forced Mental Health Treatment (tags)
In a move that has angered mental health clients and spurred mounting criticism of voter betrayal, state officials announced Tuesday that counties will likely be allowed to use taxpayer money from recently passed ballot measure Proposition 63 to fund involuntary treatment, including court-ordered outpatient commitment. In response, clients have launched a letter-writing campaign to demand the state reverse its course.
Back to back direct actions for Cascadia's forests! (tags)
This week forest defenders across Cascadia united to expose the link between the politicans and corporations that profit from the destruction of US public lands. On Tuesday, 40 Cascadians occupied US Senator Ron Wyden's office. The following day, a protester dressed as a spotted owl locked to a 250 pound stump while others rallied, shutting down Umpqua Bank's flagship branch for several hours.
Both Umpqua Bank and Senator Wyden greenwash their images, depicting themselves as environmentally friendly while supporting and profiting from the destruction of Oregon's native forests. Senator Wyden presents himself as a green politican, and yet of all US politicans he is the fifth highest recipient of campaign contributions from the timber industry. Meanwhile, he sponsors earth-destroying legislation with eco-friendly names like the "Healthy Forest Restoration Act."
Similarly, Umpqua Bank markets itself as a new, hip, eco-conscious bank. In reality "StUmpqua" Bank is run by the dinosaurs of Oregon's ancient forest logging industry. With the past two days of forest actions, local activists are gearing up for the upcoming Earth First! Direct Action Rendezvous in Southwest Oregon the final weekend in August, near the massive Biscuit logging project. The National Earth First! Rendezvous will be held in Oregon in Summer 2005.

Every place needs a mythology. It sings for it. When it gets to the point which it is singing then it only hopes that it is heard. I hope I got to transcribe the notes right. It has a certain tone to it -- a certan bassline. This place/my hood/barrio/community, well, it became a place where you knew people cared enough to help each other out
(Move over 9-11 families) Meet the 'Fort Hood Families'! (tags)
A 'war blog' ... Make way '9-11 families' for the new rising stars, 'the Fort Hood Families'. As well as this new little propaganda toy of the extreme right wing, we are also being fed huge amounts of perjury and falsehoods during the war, just as we were in the lead up to the war, all intended to convince people that the war is something that its not. However the documents of the Extreme Right illustrate quite clearly that the war in Iraq should actually be renamed 'Operation Iraqi Oil'.
On hooding (tags)
A few citations concerning the practice of hooding supposed terrorists, taken (with one exception) from John Conroy's excellent book _Unspeakable Acts, Ordinary People: The Dynamics of Torture_ (Berkeley: U of CA P, 2000). Rather than add further commentary, I have instead affixed a photograph of unknown origin -- and leave all commentary to the reader.
