Neocon Dream, Our Nightmare

Rosa Brooks' column in The Los Angeles Times says, "Reality mugs us all, in the end. In those heady post-9/11 days when the nation's stunned acquiescence made the neoconservative dream of limitless executive and US power seem eminently attainable, the gang running the White House grew fond of quoting pundit Irving Kristol's aphorism: 'A neoconservative is a liberal who's been mugged by reality.'"

Federal Contracts Awarded to Firms Charged With Fraud

Federal Appeals Court Denies Gitmo Evidence Secrecy

William Glaberson of the New York Times reports in Saturday's edition that "a federal appeals court ordered the government yesterday to turn over virtually all its information on Guantanamo detainees who are challenging their detention, rejecting an effort by the Justice Department to limit disclosures and setting the stage for new legal battles over the government's reasons for holding the men indefinitely."

White House Allows CIA to Resume Harsh Interrogations

"President Bush breathed new life into the CIA's terror interrogation program Friday in an executive order that would allow harsh questioning of suspects, limited in public only by a vaguely worded ban on cruel and inhuman treatment," reports Katherine Shrader of the Associated Press.

Do NOT Miss This Movie, Zeitgeist, it will TRULY Shock You

ZEITGEIST, The Movie - Official Release ...

There are some things here that surprised me beyond belief. I'm still amazed that I didn't know some of this.

Please set aside 2 hours and MAKE SURE you watch it too. Share it with your family and friends.

This movie will make religious people who really have an open mind to question ALL of their long- and deeply-held beliefs. It is the reason why the American Revolution had so much promise: it was the "Age of Reason", and it was led by men like Thomas Paine, a DEIST, not a Christian, who is quoted, among many others, in this movie.

It will horrify those who think they are helping the poor with economic regulations without knowing that they're actually working against their professed intentions. It will horrify those who think nationalism and war is necessary, not knowing that it only benefits a few unfathomably wealthy bankers.

It will link man's current deterioration to a deterioration of each individual's decreasing sense of personal responsibility and fear-motivated decisions.

In short, it transcends all conventional cultural parameters and slaps you across the face with the facts which you must try to refute. If you cannot refute them, you will be hard pressed to deny them.

Updates & commentary:

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical."

"I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state."

--founder of the Democratic Party, 3rd President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

Are The Stories From The Bible Real?


Is Christianity, along with all other theistic belief systems, the fraud of the age? Does It serves to detach the species from the natural world, and likewise, each other? Does It supports blind submission to authority?

Force-Feeding at Guantanamo

By Ben Fox

Twice a day at the U.S. military prison here, Abdul Rahman Shalabi and Zaid Salim Zuhair Ahmed are strapped down in padded restraint chairs and flexible yellow tubes are inserted through their noses and throats. Milky nutritional supplements, mixed with water and olive oil to add calories and ease constipation, pour into their stomachs.

Bush to Children: Drop Dead

On so-called philosophical grounds, President Bush opposes health care for children. A bipartisan group of Senators want to expand the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) by $60 billion over five years, covering 3.3 million additional low-income children. Bush will only except half of that.

Rising from the Phoenix's Flames

By Emily Spence

All considered, we will have to become more aware that whatever everyone does (or doesn't do) can effect the social whole in monumental ways. Therefore, we can no longer afford to take advantage of others to fill our own coffers. We can no longer be caviler about the widespread demise of other species. We can no longer tolerate escalating consumption of resources as if there is no end of them in sight.
