Mandatory Cervical Cancer (wart) Vaccine With Sixth Grade Girls (tags)
In 18 states, lawmakers (influenced by drug company lobbyists) are considering whether to require sixth grade girls to take the cervical cancer vaccine, regardless of it's " side effects". The Virginia legislators have passed such a bill and millions of Texans are outraged that Gov. Perry bypassed the legislature and took away parental choice in mandating the price-gouging poisons of a toxic cervical cancer ' vaccine'. While an "over looked vaccine" that the drug companies can not port from as well, needs adequate investigation and research review. This report also exposes some of the typical corruption in medical research, as exposed in with verifiable reference material that has been "censored" from the main news media.

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
