Prarie Home Companion can be a bit ah shucks NPR for me at times, but lately Garrison is speaking out. This is one of the things he had to say on his web site.

I like to think this shows the deep level of concern and unrest happening right now in the world and especially in America.

emphasis added:
"[Maj. Gen.Muhammad Abdallah al-Shahwani, director of the collaborationist National Intelligence Service] said most Iraqi people do not actively support the insurgents or provide them with material or logistical help, but at the same time they won’t turn them in. ONE MILITARY SOURCE INVOLVED IN THE PENTAGON DEBATE AGREES THAT THIS IS THE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM, AND HE SUGGESTS THAT NEW OFFENSIVE OPERATIONS ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD CREATE A FEAR OF AIDING THE INSURGENCY. "THE SUNNI POPULATION IS PAYING NO PRICE FOR THE SUPPORT IT IS GIVING TO THE TERRORISTS," he said. "From their point of view, it is cost-free. WE HAVE TO CHANGE THAT EQUATION."

President Bush wants the lawyer who advised him that international rules on the treatment of prisoners were obsolete and “quaint” to become the principal law officer of the United States of America. With a record blemished by his stances on torture and civil rights, Arab Americans are concerned that the nomination of Alberto Gonzales as the new US attorney general would usher in a new era of racial profiling and religious discrimination.

Now that Electronic Jim-Crow has officially stolen the 2004 presidential and congressional elections it can be officially declared that the South has finally won the civil war. It took a 150 years for the proslavery, segregationist, white supremacist movement in America to accomplish the task but they finally did it.

Clinton, just one of the gang again.

Queer Planet, 08.01.2005 19:24

Not one red cent? It would mean 40 million of them if that money went to aid and not for yet another gross display of greed. But yes, Clinton, of course, let us spend 40 million so that wealthy sycophants can get dressed up and party.

Who cares that people are starving on the streets, that the deficit is the highest it's ever been, that a deadly and expensive war is raging. Let them eat McDonald's hamburgers.

Clinton, Bush, Kerry, Congress....all the same bunch of wealthy ignorant self-congratulating corporate puppets. How much longer will this democracy tolerate such blatant plutocracy?

The devastation in Iraq

by Dahr Jamail reposted by jamie, 08.01.2005 16:10

Below is an article from a journalist in Iraq for the last six months or so. Unbelievable. Every “American” should be “forced” to read every word of it.

"There's an old saying in Tennessee ... uh, I know it's in Texas ... uh, uh, probably in Tennessee – that uh, says ... uh, fool me once, shame on ... uh, shame on you. Fool me ... ... ... uh, you can't get fooled again." – Dajjal Bush during his 2004 campaign.

The actual saying is "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me."

"Although it is too early to tell just how many people may be led to Jesus through the work of missionaries in devastated South Asia, Asher expects Christians involved in the relief effort will encounter vast numbers of people that are seeking God in the midst of tragedy." "When they're passing out a bottle of water, a blanket, a lanter, a candle, they're passing out gospel tracts with them," the ministry spokesman says. "So they are definitely taking this opportunity to be a witness of the love of Jesus Christ to the Hindus, to the Muslims, to whoever was affected, certainly fulfilling the commandment to take the gospel to everybody."

Here come the death squads?

jamie, 07.01.2005 22:39

Here come the death squads? The recent murder of an Iraqi trade unionist described in the article below may indicate that the U.S. is resorting to methods that proliferated in Central America and other “areas of it’s domain” in the 1980’s. Such actions “limited the effects of social movements” attempting to improve the lives of people of meager means (meaning the majority of the nation in question). But wait. The U.S. wants to improve the lives of common Iraqis doesn’t it?

Candle Light Vigils Sunday January 9th will be exactly two weeks since the Disaster in south Asia. Christmas and New Years celebrations precluded a focussed moment to pause and reflect and grieve properly. 'Global Vigil for the Global Village' is a self-organizing moment in time where family and neighbours may gather in their communities and hold candlelight vigils. This is not a fundraiser. Monday January 10th allows people leaving work and students after class to connect with colleagues and classmates to reflect on the tragedy in south Asia: for latest locations or to add your own vigil.

Fifth Intercontinental Youth Camp, Porto Alegre, Brazil

Only a few weeks left and the fifth edition of the Intercontinental Youth Camp will find its realisation in Porto Alegre, Brasil from 24th to 31st of January. While the organizational process has been going on for many months, these days the first campers are already arriving in Parque Harmonia, on the shore of Lake Guaíba in the heart of the city of Porto Alegre, to join in with the construction of the camp. Having surged during the first World Social Forum in January 2001, the camp rapidly developed its own dynamics and concepts and grew quickly counting over 25.000 participants in Porto Alegre in 2003 and more than 4.000 in Mumbai, India in 2004. It joins political discourse and action with practical approaches of convivencia (living together) in a huge laboratory.
