This is nothing less than conclusive scientific evidence that fires from the planes’ jet fuel are NOT what brought down the Towers, as we have been led to believe. It is time for an independent investigation into this crime, with the power to subpoena witnesses.

Is the Arab Spring turning to Dust under Israeli Bombardment? BACKFIRE (tags)
Some press reports suggest, moreover, that a lot of Lebanese, seeing their capital under attack from Israel, are rallying behind Hizbullah. Even many formerly pro-American Christian Lebanese are deeply upset that Bush seemed to say it was all right for the Israelis to bomb their civilian airport and blockade the whole country. If the country goes to new elections, the results could be quite different this time.

5 Gal. Plastic Buckets - Bring to Demos (tags)
5 Gal plastic buckets (like the sort found out behind kitchens, diners, etc) are great tools (after you clean 'em). Use 'em for drums, seats, carry-totes for food and gear...... If you choose one with a handle (and NO spout) you can drop it over a tear gas canister - it traps the gas...which turns to some sort of wierd funky dust (don't touch the dust). After the dust cools, you have yr drum againn..... but wash it out when you can.......
