El paro nacional camionero en Colombia es un exito total, gracias a que todos los gremios se estan sumando a la propuesta, a pesar de que el gobierno del paramilitar Alvaro Uribe Velez a tratado de frenarlo por todos los medios.
Consistent with its disregard for the safety and health of humans and the rest of the planet, the Department of Homeland Security has decided to proceed with the gamma irradiation of people passing through US ports of entry to detect hidden explosives.
Radiation may come from either an external source, such as an x-ray machine, or an internal source, such as an injected radioisotope. The impact of radiation on living tissue is complicated by the type of radiation and the variety of tissues. In addition, the effects of radiation are not always easy to separate from other factors, making it a challenge at times for scientists to isolate them.
There are numerous connections between the Bush family and the Nazis. Moreover, the philosophy of the neocons within the Bush administration has already been connected with fascism.

The furthest fringes of the culture - in its obscure webpages, zines, and samizdat publications, eerie shortwave and streaming audio radio voices that sound like they're coming from the other side (or maybe just a trailer in Lawrence, Kansas) - and the memes they contain, can be used a magic mirror, a shewstone, Delphic vapors where the future can be divined, where the cultural matrix you will find yourself in the future can be glimpsed now.

After selling the fairy tale of rebuilding Iraq with Iraq's own oil money and then modifying the fairy tale in order to get funding for rebuilding Iraq out of Congress and the American people and then flushing the money down no bid contract Wabit holes to companies like Halliburton and Bechtel who's book keeping resembles that of Mad Hatter Wabits rather than professional sevice firms - the Bush regime has decided to modify or should I say mutate the warm and fuzzy Iraqi fairytale into "The Nightmare on Haifa Street" or "The 17 billion dollar in Development Bradley Fighting Armoured Personel Carrier Blowed Up Reeeeeeeeeal Good". Just like the whistle blowers said it would.
The U.S. killing machine is moving into high gear in Iraq. Women, children, and ambulance drivers were some of today's targets. Also, the number of U.S. troops killed in action has jumped to 1020. The second thousand is unlikely to be a year and a half "in the making."
How long will it be before the people of the USA realize, as has most of the world, that Bush, the neocons, and the lunatic elites, are taking this country and world to an untenable and desperate condition.
Let's not let the "gates of hell" open in Baggdad. Please spread this news and other important information as widely as possible. And get active in the struggle to end the war/occupation of Iraq. It's time to let Kerry know that it is time he stood up and committed his administration to "no draft." Such a move might put some life into a campaign that seems to be going nowhere real fast. Peace, jamie
