BELLA DE SOTO
Born in the Caribbean island The Dominican Republic in 1953, during a tyrannical time of brutal dictatorship under President Trujillo.  In 1965, at age 12 I was brought to New York City by my Mother, who had divorced my Dad a year earlier.  The US Navy had just invaded D.R. to prevent a Democratic electorate process from going forward toward a socialist head of State immediately following a people's revolt, which assassinated Dictator Trujillo, after enduring severe longtime despotism. Since then, the Dominican Republic has been under US control,  which of course is the reason to also never allow Haiti's autonomy, which shares a Third of the Island in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean.

What high power has ever bestowed a Country like the US
the right to interfere with other governments on Earth???
That per Dr. Martin Luther King;"The US is the worst purveyor of
destruction throughout The World" is an understatement...
 
ξ That religion has been a mayor culprit in this effort...

Bella's recommendation on this read...  "Not only is it the true riveting historical depiction of the US illegal    intervention into the Philippines/Puerto Rico and Cuba beginning in 1898-99, under false pretence to be on the side of the Philippines at Manila Bay, to help as well fence off the Spaniards from its stronghold of Philippino lands, but a complete early colorful archive of US  false political propaganda, which to date has been so perfected into      maintaining an entire population in the dark..."  " Truly, History 101-a new revelation on what US History books should say, but do not !!!..."

     Some renown Authors' commentaries...
The brutal war waged by the United States against the Filipino people at the turn of the century has been shrouded in darkness for a long time, the truth concealed from generations of Americans. THE FORBIDDEN BOOK brings that shameful episode in our history out in the open, with a wonderful combination of crystal-clear text and extraordinary cartoons. The book deserves wide circulation.
-Howard Zinn, Professor Emeritus, Boston University; author of A People's History of the United States

Brimming with insights into the beginnings of American imperial policy overseas, this book reconstructs an era that was to shape and refine U.S. intervention in the modern world. Through political cartoons in an era when the colonizer itself worked to hide the truth from the American people about the forgotten war a century ago, this book restores for the present generation a past marred by misinformation, racism, blind patriotism and outright lies. A thought-provoking education about the miseducation of the American people by arrogant imperial leaders whose successors never seem to learn the lessons of history. A particularly relevant book which makes it essential reading for the present generation of Filipinos and other colonial subjects of the modern PAX AMERICANA.

-Roland G. Simbulan, Professor of Development Studies & Public Management, and Vice Chancellor, University of the Philippines

In this extraordinary collection of political cartoons from the period of the Philippine-American War and subsequent colonization, frank visual satire and caricature vibrate with 'forgotten' histories from the turn of the 19th century: they link U.S. imperial conquests in the Pacific to those in the Caribbean, refract American perceptions of Filipinos through its devastating treatments of blacks and native peoples, explicitly admit U.S. ambitions to employ not only war, but education and culture, to surpass the reach and power of the European empires by the end of the 20th century. These 'forbidden' images are windows onto an earlier moment in the history of American empire, a history in which we still live and struggle today.

-Lisa Lowe, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of California, San Diego; author of Immigrant Acts.

Constitution anyone????

The following material is from my up coming future Book...  An expose on the US presidency;that all those taken the oath to defend the US interests has been a well lid farce ...  Are all US presidents criminals?????

On July 4th, 1776, The Western Northern lands (Later to be known as The US), signed a Declaration of Independence from Great Britain's colonizing/tyrannical/taxing & economic systems that was being imposed on these lands, due to their long time land conquests.

OK, but what needed to happen next for these lands to cohesively operate within a collective social, commerce, taxing and more importantly for the times being developed, politically?
Here's some background: Between 1776 and 1780, every state had written its own constitution, and even before the Declaration of Independence was signed , New Hampshire, South Carolina, Virginia and New Jersey (in that order) had adopted provisional constitutions, and Rhode island had converted its original colonial charter to the equivalent of a constitution by removing all references to Great Britain and king George III.  Soon by the end of 1776, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, and Connecticut (in that order) had followed suit.  And in 1777, Georgia, New York, and Vermont followed the craze, so in June of 1780 the Massachusetts constitutional convention ratified its own state constitution.  Thirteen states in all…

So now comes crunch time…  Decision time became a major preoccupation for this emerging nation!  Well, those who would benefit by rearranging the new political system structure under which a very few would have a say so over the very many got very busy…

Thus, an effort to forge a new nation began, for these lands to weather be governed
as a loose federation of 13 independent states or would it be a single unified nation, made up of separate, but independent states?

So, it would take ten more years for a Convention to be convened where a greater number of states would begin to participate in dialogue on the Articles of a Confederation.  However, all along, these Articles of Confederation were being hammered out between some states, interested parties, etc. In effect, it created a "Continental Congress".  Under this Continental Congress a national government would function solely through its legislature managed by this Congress.  Finally, this Congress found the time to approve the fist American constitution on November 15, 1777, known as The Articles of Confederation.

This new Congress was empowered to declare war and make peace, draft men for the army, conduct diplomatic relations with foreign countries, regulate American Indian affairs, coin money, and issue currency.  But Congress could not levy taxes and was therefore entirely dependent on the individual states to contribute monies voluntarily to enable Congress to carry out its national duties.  Indeed, the Articles left no doubt that the states were supreme over this newly formed Congress, where each state retained its sovereignty, freedom, independence, every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States in congress assembled.
***Congress could recommend laws to the states, but each state held final authority to pass only such legislation as it saw fit, regardless of any conflicts among the different states.

Further, the Articles established no single head of the national government nor did it institute a system of national courts.

The very organization of this new government under the articles of Federation, fostered
a weak, leaderless, and decentralized system.  Delegates to Congress were selected annually by state legislatures.   No delegate could serve more than three out of every six years, thereby preventing experienced representatives from helping to improve the functioning of the national government on a consistent basis.  To add to the lack of continuity, sessions of congress rotated among Philadelphia, Princeton, Annapolis, and New York City and on many occasions not enough state representatives were present to constitute a quorum (the minimum number necessary to conduct a valid session), thereby preventing any business from being accomplished.

Meanwhile, what was being now called "America", was still fighting a war with Britain, which did not end until Lord Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington at Yorktown in 1781.

But to skip over much detail, on September 17, 1787, after the final draft of the Constitution was read to the delegates, Benjamin Franklin made an impassioned plea to any who had reservations and join in unanimously supporting it.

Franklin confessed that 'there are several parts of this Constitution which I do not at present approve," but having lived so long he said he had learned "to pay more respect to the judgment of others."  He observed that most men "think themselves in possession of all truth." 

However, in 1776, an opportunity to remove the stain of slavery was squandered.  Despite the principles of equality and freedom that animated the declaration of independence and despite the devotion of all the delegates to these abstract ideals, at no point did the Convention officially consider the abolition of slavery.  And since these struggles for independence, 43 Presidents have been swarned into the US Office of the presidency...



Bella  De Soto wrote on 9/01/03, while I volunteered for then,
US Pres. Dem. Candidate Dennis J. Kucinich.
Silence of the lambs no more...
What is this "Shadow Government Worldwide"?  The tip of the Iceberg...
On two recent books by Chalmers Johnson: "Blow back", & most recently
"The Sorrows of Imperialism, Secrecy & The End of Empire", outlining for us quite eloquently;
intent/root cause/symptom/ideology, & consequence of U.S. National & International Policies,
by referencing these strategies to the prevalent parallels of The Roman Empire's eminence & downfall documented in history.
Several books have been written over time in attempt to disclose/expose the sad state of
governance in this country, like the series 1985 "The Unseen Hand"  488 PP, Volumes 1 & 2, by Author
A. Ralph Epperson on Publius Press, Tucson, AZ.  A brilliant thorough compellation of introduction
to the conspiratorial view of History of the Elite/Shadow Government in the US and globally.
Sample excerpt: P 24... Should war as a means of acquiring property fail, those who wish to acquire the
property of others must design other strategies.  One method was earlier devised was...  See other frame below...
In order to tie it all together/comprehend all the ills committed by our Government, under the banner of
defending democracy/liberating peoples/stopping the spread of communism, hence ( "The Cold War" era was propagandized, to deceitfully sell the U.S. pop. the need to invade all over the world), which in reality is to prevent any country rich with natural resources/national civil policies from advancing its national interests,
why is so crucial we must put into perspective the context under which many elected officials, both Republican/Democrat have acted in unison to create for many years this "Shadow Government"
to benefit their pockets, while turning a blind eye!!!!
"Case in point;why Wars are so profitable for this "Shadow Government".
With regards to U.S. multinational Co's., ushered in a century long to date of U.S. military
interventions/ covert/overt insurgencies through military might, CIA orchestrated civil riots,
coups, regime change by assassination of democratically elected heads of states on a global scale. 
Thereby installing/sustaining puppet regimes (Dictators/Client States) with our Income Tax dollars
throughout the Globe in over 50 years !!! 
These Client Governments (puppet regimes), must never consider their respective country's
national interests, rather to sell out/give away all national resources to multi national Corporations. 
Of course, these Companies operate in continents around The World  with impunity!  Meaning,
this could not be possible without a nudge from our own U.S. Congress/The IMF/WTO/World Bank,
& other forces to insure U.S. interests (these Companies's insatiable culture of greed for wealth)
the only concern satisfied, without regard to the local needs of the peoples, from human/civil rights,
the right to assemble/organize for labor representation to negotiate/demand living wages/adequate
working conditions, etc...  
Instead, terrific chaos/destruction in the environment/fishery/agriculture/export/import/displacement
of farmers caused to lose their farms for hostile takeover by the influence of these Corporations/
ecological fabric of these countries.  It should not be surprising that among these sick Corporate
structures are Golf & Western/Oil Contortions/G.E./Monsanto/Enron/Hali Burton/Bechtel/the 6 Media
& Clear Channel Corporations, controlling all programming on the Tube/Print/Radio, & through great
efforts by the FCC, to allow for further consolidation by the big 6 & Clear Channel to completely control
all dissemination of information!!!
In short, America, while all its manufacturing jobs are been exported at an alarming rate in pursue
of cheaper & cheaper labor, without Environmental/worker rights, or protection laws, our country is
nearing becoming a consumptive/service/none manufacturing, & Fascist country, where labor right
is attacked daily to squelch resistance to this "Shadow Government".
We Americans, through shear apathy, resulting in ignorance/lack of info, have allowed/maintained the
endurance of this U.S. destructive/endemic campaign!!!
In closing, it may be easy for some to be confused from a line up of 9 Democratic Presidential
contenders...  However, if you truly read/hear the stark differences among them, It is very easy
distinguishing which one offers America a real choice for the progressive needed changes. 

Ohio Dem. Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich is that candidate, as CO-CHAIR to The Progressive
Caucus in Congress, currently championing Legislation for Healthcare for all Americans, no if's,
or buts, as the only man in Congress ever to lead instituting a Peace Department, to counter a
pervasive Defense Dept. (Offense Dept.), and a relentless fighter for social justice every/any where.
Mr. Kucinich will eliminate The WTO/NAFTA/The false War on Drugs/legalize medicinal drugs,
preserve/insist on all human/worker/Gay rights, re-appeal the infamous Oct/02 preemptive attack
resolution/all recent tax cuts/protect our global environment, etc. 
With this progressive platform, Mr. Kucinich is well poised to receive his party's nomination. 

Recently, notably Mr. Howard Dean has been getting much media coverage with falsehoods,
and Mr. J. Kerry, at Meet The Press on Sun/8/31/03 was confronted with the revealing inquiry
about his involvement in the secret society of "Skull & Bones" at Yale University; his reply
was condescending "Well no comments, is secret!", while also flip flopping on several issues
then/now!!!  Well, when debate time comes around, we'll see who's vision is really true.

So please do the right thing when your vote counts...

Los Angeles County Deputy Coroner James K. Ribe is a public disaster with a long, disturbing history
of medical misjudgments and reversals of opinion that have subjected innocent people to miscarriages of justice, including wrongful murder convictions.  Because his tendentious testimony benefits the prosecution, however, he has been protected by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, which has hidden Ribe's incompetence and bias from everyone, including defense attorneys and even deputy district attorneys.

Item 1:  Jose Antonio Rodriguez was killed by police during his arrest on January 18, 2004.  Ribe lost crucial brain tissue while performing the autopsy, then pronounced that the police did not intentionally kill Rodriguez.  Despite Ribe's defense of the police, the Rodriguez family is pursuing a wrongful death suit.

Item 2:  The murder-conviction of Jose A. Salazar was reversed in August of 2003, after a California appellate court found that the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office hid information about Ribe's numerous changes of medical opinions during trials.  Ribe, basing his testimony on "Shaken Baby Syndrome," a controversial if not fallacious diagnosis based upon damage and hemorrhaging of the brain, falsely contended that Salazar shook his baby to death.

Item 3:  Charles Rathbun, the killer of model Linda Sobek, was nearly acquitted in his 1996 trial, because Ribe could not explain the cause of Sobek's death 4 months after he performed her autopsy.  He eventually conceded that Sobek's asphyxiation was not accidental.  During cross-examination, Ribe admitted that he reshaped his opinion based on the testimony of another prosecution witness.

Item 4:  Ribe changed his testimony in another 1996 trial--the prosecution by Deputy District Attorney Daniel Wright of Robert Cauchi of Van Nuys for the torture and murder of his 4-year-old stepdaughter.  Because Wright knew of other cases where Ribe revamped his opinion during the course of a trial, he filed an internal memo to the District Attorney's Bureau of Special Operations alleging "serious errors" in the testimony and reliability of Ribe.  According to the memo, the prosecution was "almost derailed" by Ribe's "surprise reversal of opinion."

Item 5:  During the 1997 trial of Edith Arce and Roy Urbano of Huntington Park for the starving death of their 3-year-old son, prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Dinko Bozanich, a sweeping order was issued by Norwalk Superior Court Judge Dewey L. Falcone demanding transcripts of all testimony by Ribe dating back to 1990, copies of all coroner's reports relating to Ribe's testimony, and all internal memos or complaints about Ribe's credibility.  Bozanich supported the order, because of his concerns that the district attorney's office does not share data about the unreliability of expert witnesses like Ribe with its own prosecutors.  Bozanich lamented, "How can I make an intelligent decision on how to prosecute a case when my own office has information that the credibility of a centerpiece witness may be so impaired that it may not only be worthless to put him on but damaging to the prosecution?" Bozanich said that witnesses like Ribe expose him to "the risk of being blindsided."

Item 6:  Ribe's most serious flip-flop may have occurred after the 1995 prosecution of Eve Wingfield and David Helms of North Hollywood for the murder of 2-year-old Lance Helms.  Initially, Ribe testified that Lance died 30 to 60 minutes after he was beaten, when Ms. Wingfield was with the toddler.  As a result, Ms. Wingfield made a plea bargain under duress, accepting a ten-year sentence for Lance's death.  When two LAPD detectives, who suspected that David Helms was the murderer, interviewed Ribe years later, he told them that Lance died instantaneously, while he was under the control of David Helms.  Ribe disavowed his earlier testimony as "just ridiculous," arguing that "I had zero time to prepare." According to the defense attorney, Jack Stone, Ribe "tailor[s] his scientific opinion" to coincide with prosecution theories.  Only after Ribe's change of mind was Wingfield released from prison, and David Helms finally convicted of murder.

Item 7:  Ribe's negligence--if not venality--was responsible for the 1997 wrongful murder convictions of William Jacobo, Jr. and Patricia Vildosola of Monterey Park after the sudden death of their 20-month-old baby Destiny.  As in the Salazar case, Ribe contended that Destiny was the victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome.  Yet Ribe did not provide crucial "contre-coup" brain matter to L.A. County's chief neuropathologist, Dr. Hideo H. Itabashi; nor did he present the brain tissue at trial.  Evidently, Ribe destroyed or concealed the purported "contre-coup" material because it was exculpatory, and he wanted to score a win for the prosecution-just as Ribe lost or otherwise concealed the brain tissue of Jose Antonio Rodriguez.  Ribe also withheld evidence that Destiny was suffering from pneumonia and other medical problems, and that she was fatally mistreated by Joseph Boggs, an unlicensed doctor.  Mr. Jacobo was exonerated after spending five long years in state penitentiaries, but Ms. Vildosola, who is obviously innocent, remains incarcerated for life.  Ribe has an extensive record of unrealibility, vacillation, and bias.  Moreover, the district attorney's office continues to conceal information about Ribe's inconsistencies, and its lack of confidence in Ribe's credibility.

All cases for which Ribe testified may be tainted, and should be reopened immediately by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  Furthermore, a federal investigation is needed in order to determine the extent and impact of Ribe's improprieties.

-TIME FOR JUSTICE-
   On Mon, 10 May 2004, at 7:00 PM some of us Activists met at a Restaurant to put fourth strategies for Impeachment of the US President George W. Bush...

    A few weeks later this meeting 10 of us met with Congressman Henry Waxman at his office, to appeal to him,  and present a clear case for Impeachment.
  
    To our chagrin, he was not moved...
    His comment was that his guy was then running fro US President-John Kerry, and that under the current political climate it would be too difficult to even think about it! 
    That he would continue exposing the no bid contracts to Companies as Hali Burton and the likes...
    Each one of us made a presentation for Impeachment, but
    without avail!!!  I even read a then most moving recent open letter from former US Attorney General Mr. Ramsey Clark...

"The government's indictment of me is really an attack on the people"
                                                             -- Lynne Stewart
In April 2002, attorney Lynne Stewart was arrested and charged with providing material
support for terrorism, among other charges.  The indictment was announced with much
ceremony by John Ashcroft himself and signaled a new step in the government's crackdown
on civil liberties post-9/11.

The charges against Stewart stem from wiretapped conversations between her and her client,
the Egyptian cleric Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, whom she defended in 1995.  The indictment
came a full two years after the last alleged act.  The charges against her would not have been
possible before the Patriot Act, a provision of which allows the government to carry out warrantless
wiretaps of previously confidential attorney-client communications.

By targeting and indicting Lynne Stewart the U.S. Justice Department hopes to make an example
of an attorney with a long history of political activism and a reputation for vigorously advocating on
behalf of her clients, including many political defendants.  Her arrest is meant as a signal to the
defense bar to cease and desist zealous representation of people criminalized by the Government. 

We the people must now defend her!

Come learn more about her case and how you can support her defense.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   
Submitted for unofficial comments in May/2004... To then Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, now Bruce Mc Pherson.  On January 21/2005 I published this petition on www.PetitionsOnline.com.  The very next day I got a call from KFI AM Fox Radio, which interviewed me over my Cell phone on my Petition.  I let them have it, while covering several critical points on my Petition ...
This started a kind of ripple effect...  
English version:
PETITION TO RECALL GOVERNOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

Whereas, We The People of California strongly feel that we’ve made a terrible mistake in Electing Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as Governor for our fair State…

Whereas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, while in office for a short time, has proven through catastrophic public policies, that he will not heed the Statewide social, economic, health, security and safety needs of the people of this state...

Whereas, Mr. Schwarzenegger has made the clear wrong choices between “We The People” demands/needs, VS his personal agenda/Election backer Elitist interests…

Whereas, insult was recently added to injury, when he transgressed against the will of the people, in the arena of public education, cutting $200 million from Schools to build 12 new Prisons, and recently, denied $ 2.2 Billion for education under Prop.98, previously passed by majority vote in CA...

Whereas, he has attempted to dismantle critical help for our Disabled population, some of the most vulnerable of California’s citizens…
Whereas, in total, his policy measures are leading our State into further chaos…

Whereas, Arnold Schwarzenegger gained the electoral edge over his opponents through {unlawful, unethical} campaign financing maneuvers...

Whereas, to date Arnold Schwarzenegger has not revealed to the Californian Electorate the shenanigans he and his Campaign used to manipulate his Gubernatorial Election…

Whereas, Mr. Schwarzenegger has made every effort to prevent our fair State from pursuing or collecting sums in the Billions, owed to our State by Enron and other Companies; as proceeds from their having knowingly and unlawfully manipulated our Energy markets…

Whereas, “We The People” see Mr. Schwarzenegger as unfit to continue holding office, and as a threat to our State’s survival…

We The People seek and demand a new Gubernatorial Recall, and a new Gubernatorial Election to allow all our State’s voters to cast their votes knowledgeably, in light of this recently discovered information...

Spanish version:
PETICION PARA REMOVER GOVERNADOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

Donde que, nosotros, “El Pueblo” de California, reconosemos haver cometido un gran error al aver elegido el Senor Arnold Schwarzenegger para governar nuestro Estado de California...

Donde que, Arnold Schwarzenegger, mientras poco tiempo en oficina, ha demonstrado atravez de sus polizas publicas, grave desatento a deveras nesecidades en areas social, econimica, educacion, salud, seguridad de nuestro pueblo Estatal…

Donde que, el Sr. Arnold Schwarzenegger, ha escojido dentro de estas nesecidades de
la majoria “El Pueblo” Estatal, y su Agenda personal , favoreciendo la minoria electoral de su apoyo “Elites”…

Donde que, insulta fue anadid a la yaga, cuando redujo $200 Millones del presupuesto de educacion, ya debil, para construir 12 nuevas prisiones, y reciente, $2.2 Billones bajo la Prop.98, pasada por majoria de votantes en CA, fueron negados para la educacion…

Donde que, el ha estado amenasando con acciones negativas, la critica infrastura de ayuda para nuestra populacion desabilitada, cual una muy vulnerable…

Donde que, el neto total de sus polizas, esta empujando nuestro Estado asia mas chaos…

Donde que, Arnold Schwarzenegger obtuvo su borde electoral favorable sobre su adversarios, atravez de manipulaciones {ilegal, no honorable} con su Campana de Eleccion para Governador…

Donde que, el Snr. Schwarzenegger, asta la fecha, no le ha revelado al electoral entero
de California, como el y su Campana de Eleccion entonces, manipularon la situacion para ganar su Eleccion Gubernatoria…

Donde que, ha echo todo su esfuerzo para impedir que nuestro Estado recupere antidades en los $ Billones, ya devidos a California por Companias come Enron y otras, por aver manipulado con malicia de intencion, nuestras marketas de energia apenas anos atras…

Donde que, nosotros “El Pueblo”, vemos a el Snr. Schwarzenegger no apto para continuar reteniendo la oficina de Governador de nuestro Estado de California…

Nosotros, “El Pueblo”, buscamos con demanda una nueva Eleccion para remover el Snr. Schwarzenegger como Governador de CA. Para permitir esta vez, todos registrados, poder votar, con prudente conocimiento de esta revelacion de informacion...

Subject: OUR MINDLESS MEDIA...

"THE STATE OF THE MINDLESS PRESS"

And then there's 9/11 itself - the day that knocked the US press clean out of its collective mind, and into full-time propaganda mode for this war hungry President GWB, who knows nothing else except lounging war again on Iraq, or anywhere else!  As far as he's concerned, WAR is lucrative anywhere, especially where there's oil involved, lots of it!
No remorse on the countless lives lost in Afghanistan, and still counting...
This same President, abetted by Dick Cheney, & Co., et al, has done everything he can to thwart a full inquiry into how and why the worst of crimes occurred on 9/11/01 here on our soil!
* Such obstruction is, at best, completely indefensible, since it prevents the country at large from grasping what occurred, and how we might best keep such things from happening again.  At worst, it indicates that Bush and Cheney must be hiding something - something very dear, but "We The People" have the right to know.

In any case, their interference ought to be sufficient grounds for their immediate impeachment; and yet our journalists have been so dazed by 9/11 that they have failed to call for a commission looking into it - an investigative body of the sort that we have had before, and that the government of any normal country would
have organized at once. Overeager, even now, to help prop up this failing president (and, of course, to keep their ratings high), they display no interest in enlightening us, but are intent on dunking all of us in an immense "emotional bath" (a phrase Tom Brokov used not long ago, approvingly).  They seem to think that such submersion is a patriotic act - but nothing could be further from the truth. The masses are not at all happy about this Media reaction!  So shape up, or shape out, for independent media will leave you in the dust.

Soon, you will be history…

"Let The People Speak".  An 18 page revealing expose on The NC Nobel origins, but its
Mission now seems dampened…

ONCE STRUCTURED TO BETTER REPRESENT THE INTERESTS OF LOS  ANGELES COMMUNITIES AT THE LA CITY COUNCIL STAGE...
SADLY, NOW, NC'S HAVE BECOME A FORMIDABLE HAVEN FOR THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MEMBERS TO BE ELECTED TO THE NC BOARDS THROUGHOUT THE CITY...  NO LONGER THE LOWLY SHALL ASPIRE TO ANY REPRESENTATION AT ANY OF THESE BOARDS WHEN THEY PUSH THROUGH THEIR ELITE COLLECTIVE AGENDAS... 

WHILE THE ENTIRE LOS ANGELES BUDGET IS        $  12,051,567,932.00       (100%)
THE AIRPORTS GET                                                        $       926,400,000.00       (7.7%)
THE HARBOR GETS                                                         $       599,400,000.00       (5.0%)
D.W.P.                                                                                  $    5,137,700,000.00       (42.6%)
THE ACTUAL "CITY" BUDGET                                       $    5,388,067,932.00       (44.7%)

¨TOTAL LA CITY BUDGET (dif w/DWP $2,504,000)    $  12,051,567,932.00 

IT ISN'T SO MUCH WHEN CONSIDERING THE LA METROPOLIS, AND DIVERSITY ABOUND...  HOWEVER, EACH NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL RECEIVES $50,000.00  FROM THE CITY, AND CURRENTLY  THERE'RE AROUND 87 NC'S IN LA, PLUS THERE'S (D.O.N.E.) THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOOD EMPOWERMENT LEAD BY GREG NELSON, AND THERE'S (B.O.N.C.) THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS TO OVERSEE D.O.N.E.'S OPERATIONS REGARDING NC'S... 

OF COURSE, THESE TWO CITY DEPARTMENTS ALSO GET A GOOD CHUNK OF THE CITY BUDGET, AND FROM I STAND, ARE PAPER PUSHERS.  NOT PROACTIVELY ENGAGED TO TRULY ATTEND TO THE MANY NEEDS & COMPLAINTS BY THE NC BOARDS, WHO HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THE TAKE OVER OF FACTIONS SUCH AS THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, ETC...

FOR THREE YEARS PLUS, I PERSONALLY FELL VICTIM TO THE VARIOUS INJUSTICE TACTICS BY AND FROM UNSUSPECTING SO CALLED FRIENDS OF THE COMMUNITY...  THESE FOLKS CONTINUE TO PULL A FAST ONE OVER MANY WELL MEANING ACTIVISTS AND ORGANIZATIONS!

This corruption must be halted by all who can see the danger with this process gone array...  If we allow this structure to be taken over by The Chamber of Commerce's interests and its allies,  then,  we're in real trouble...  However, the concern is much greater for the entire City of LA...  I will bring you others segments archival excerpts documented in the past Four years while serving as a Board Member, and as Treasurer at a Neighborhood Council in South Central, where I have personally suffered the wrath by some very vicious elements within this City structure, but no one is paying attention…

WELL, THERE'S MUCH MORE TO COME YOUR WAY IN THIS AREA AT FUTURE SEGMENTS, SO STAY TUNE...

Refuse & Resist! ALERT: Mass Deportations of Immigrants Announced June 12, 2003

Immigration officials announced on June 7, 2003, that they plan deportations of more than 13,000 Arab and Muslim men who registered in the INS Special Registrations earlier this year.  Refuse & Resist! opposes the
mass detentions and deportations of Middle Eastern immigrants. Stop the attacks and racial profiling of Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants.
This morning at a news conference in Brooklyn featuring some of the men and families who are facing deportation, an Arab American leader asked, "Where is the outcry from the general public about this?"  A Yemini American said,"Ashcroft and Company bring shame to all Americans" and pointed out that
the rights of many more people will be violated if these practices are not stopped.
This sentiment echoes the famous statement of Rev. Martin Neimoeller afterWorld War II about his native

Germany:
First they came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't aCommunist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up because I was a
Protestant. Then they came for me, but by that time, no one was left to speak up.

We urge everyone to find the ways to work together with other organizations,groups and individuals to create a society-wide atmosphere of opposition and resistance to these attacks on immigrant people.
We cannot be complicit with the actions of this government.  Just as librarians are finding creative ways to let their patrons know they are against the spying on what books people request and what web site are being visited, we can find ways to resist this injustice.  Just as principals, teachers, and parents are resisting the military recruiters; college administrators are finding ways not to turn over the lists of foreign born to the FBI and DHS/BCIS (INS); and Bill of Rights Committees and other coalitions against the Patriot Act are working to get city council resolutions passed against the Patriot Act,we can all find ways to resist!

Write "letters to the editor," call local, regional and national government officials. Organize public meetings and educational events for people to hear Muslim, Arab and South Asian immigrants speak who have been targets of this repression. Organize rallies and demonstrations to stop these deportations.
Contact our National Office at 212-713-5657, info@refuseandresist.org and see our website http://www.refuseandresist.org for detailed background and reports of actions. Ashcroft's June Shock & Awe Campaign

-- On June 2, 2003, the Department of Justice's own Inspector General released a report that criticized authorities for "unduly harsh" treatment of immigrants detained right after September 11, 2001. In examining the
cases of 762 they say were detained, the Inspector General, Glenn A. Fine, found that many suspects were
jailed for months, often without being formally charged or given access to lawyers, and some inmates in
Brooklyn were physically and verbally abused before they were cleared of any terrorist ties.
Reuters Mon 02 June 2003: U.S. Report Says Sept. 11 Detentions 'Unduly Harsh'http://www.refuseandresist.org/
detentions/art.php?aid=869
-- On June 4th the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, American Civil Liberties Union, American
Immigration Lawyers Association, Council on American Islamic Relations, the National Lawyers Guild, and numerous other community-based and national organizations convened a bipartisan panel of public officials at a forum in DC entitled "Justice For All: Selective Enforcement in Post-911 America."  They met to hear the stories of individuals from East African, South Asian, Latino and Middle Eastern communities around the country who have been impacted by the selective enforcement actions and policies. At the same time, Ashcroft held a "public roundtable discussion with prosecutors" (i.e. press conference) to declare that his aggressive, 21 month effort to capture terror suspects was making "steady progress". The attorney general said the number of arrests, financial seizures, intelligence investigations and "other markers" for terrorism indicated his department's success in heading off another attack.

June 4, 2003: NY Times: Ashcroft Defends Detentions as Immigrants RecountToll  http://www.refuseandresist.org/detentions/art.php?aid=874
-- On June 5th, Mr. Ashcroft testified before Congress for 5 hours and stated that concerns over individual rights are unfounded. He urged Congress to give the Department of Justice still greater power to pursue terrorism suspects. He went on to say that "we make no apologies" for holding suspects as long necessary to determine whether they had links to terrorism. None of the 762 suspects were charged as terrorists.

June 6, 2003: NY Times Ashcroft Seeks More Power to Pursue Terror Suspects
-- June 7th, article in the NY Times announces that deportation "proceedings" have already been initiated for some 13,000 immigrants, who were among the 82,000 men above the age of 16 from Arab and Muslim
countries who voluntarily registered with immigration officials over the past six months. At the same time, officials have  acknowledged that almost all of the immigrants who face deportation have no ties to terrorism. So far the government has claimed only 11 of those who registered had links to terror groups.

Subject: "Community Garden Pulled By Its Roots"
(Click here for the farmers' Site)
After much has been written over this matter, here's my take,
while reviewing the legend, & recently consulting with the
Gardeners/Farmer's Rep. Ms. Rufina Juarez Sat. 11/15/03.
The highlights are:
Food Safety
Open Park
Family Space
Activities
Self Reliance
At a perilous time of history in LA, following the Riots in 1992,
a unique space of land (14 acres) was considered/designated to
provide much relief to an already disenfranchised community
around 41st Street/Alameda.
Through an agreement bet. The City of LA & the LA Regional
Food Band, the 2nd-largest distributor of free food to the urban poor,
to use these 14 acres as a community Park Garden. 
Henceforth 11 years, 347 families have been partaking  in this venture
as organic farmers, forming a most formidable environment. 
By harvesting an assortment of organic vegetables, essential
to any diet, which feed each family, who's make-up is bet.
5-8 members, as also benefiting the nearby residents.
Now, for political gains, this effort is being used as a bargaining chip,
by some LA City Council Elected Officials!!!

Food Safety:
The vegetables grown in this Park are fresh, organic,
seasonal, not readily available at the local markets!

Open Park:
In South Central LA, this Park, is a safe environment, free of
gang/crime activity, in an area plagued by these, it is unique in itself! 
Under favorable wether conditions, about 1,000.00 neighborhood folk stroll
weekly through the Park Gardens, to pick their weekly vegetables, habits developed
over the past 11 years.
It is one of ten such Parks in the poorest LA neighborhoods, but the only one of its size,
and achievements.

Family Space:
Each family responsible for its lot space, which range in different configurations, minds the
maintenance & security, as children run free, while adults attend the crops.
About 50% of these families reside in this community, & the rest in the surrounding areas.
This Park Garden, is an inviting space for all to share in something very special worth preserving!
It has become a main staple to South Central LA, since inception.

Activities/Self reliance:
There are regular monthly meetings among the families harvesting the 14 acres, to discuss main-
tenance, etc.  One idea, which sprung with the alliance of LA Community Gardens since April, till
the City notice in Sept., was the farmer's market, to service the community, with entertaining
activities for the kids.
This space, is consistently used by Public Schools & Non Profits on their field trips.
During the Summer months, workshops on Compost/Organic Fertilizer, Water Conservation, Efficient
Planting & Space Usage are taught by volunteer master gardeners.
The LA Regional Food Bank located across from the Park, routinely receives donations of organic materials
& seeds, for use in the Park.  Thereby facilitating a perpetual self reliance mode.
Through these means of harvesting, these families promote clean air & the value of growing food vs just
picking from the rack at the store.  These values are not taught in our Public Schools, therefore, this Park serves
this necessity!

Closing Statement:
It is clearly demonstrated heretofore, that hope and pride can thrive from a 20 x 20 piece of land, if you can harvest it with your own hands, and the teaching of ancient values can be passed on to young generations, to insure our obligation to take care of our Mother Earth.
It is your conscience, at this time, which can, or not do the right thing!

Nobody sees a flower, really - it is so small - we haven't time, and to see takes time,
like to have a friend takes time...   Georgia O'Keeffe

Thanks.

Oh, it's almost too good to be true.  It's like the most turgid pot-boiler political scam insider novel come to life.  The elected federales are cashing out to charity as if that will exonerate them.  The bad guy is almost too good to believe...he goes to court looking like a mafia hit man and the press plays up his emulation of a fictitious movie character.  It is truly nutz. 

But I'll tell you what, if the Dems and the press don't have a field day with this....and I mean on a scale vastly more so than the GOP’s Monica Lewinsky obsession....then I'm resigning from all interest in politics and the press and moving to the desert.  The unbridled hubris, the as-yet unplumbed scope of government corruption, the ethical violations, and pure hypocrisy...not to mention the basic lawlessness that obtains as a matter of fact in "our" Government....beggars the imagination.  It quite literally puts fiction to shame. 
Enough, I pray, to topple this Government.  Cuz that's what I want....a clean slate. 
Enough with the unholy triumvirate of lawyers, lobbyists and politicians.  It is time for a change.  This government is "run" by liars, influence peddlers, and cutpurses.  Fie on 'em!   Lest we forget, Thos. Paine was moved to write pamphlets alerting the citizenry to an unacceptable state of affairs in the Government and the need for change.  Where is Thos. Paine today?
Bona Fortuna Nuevo Anno (sic),
Lucius
Addendum:  Why do the worse of us get into politics?  Why the most greedy, ambitious, power mongering, egomaniacal, pontificating media magnificos?  I despise them, I despise their hubris, their presumption, their disregard for the law, the environment, and for human life itself.  They all belong in one jail where they can prey upon each other. 

So, I say, let's build a new kind of jail for politicians who squeeze the legal system that they create, who live off the backs of the working poor (and the old), and who behave without a moral code save self-aggrandizement; and for lobbyists and special interest hawkers who spread favors and gratuities and gifts without end.  A jail wherein they must be completely and utterly self sufficient.  A jail/compound where they must farm and slaughter and cook and tend to their needs without public assistance.  Fuck 'em. No toilet paper, no tv, no goods nor services of any kind save what they produce by their own labor.  A place where corrupt politicians, lawyers, and lobbyists live with the barest of necessities...sort of like a Devil's Island for those who have betrayed the public trust.  It is, after all, what they deserve.  Their abiding self-interest will be put to the test amongst their own kind.  

Ah....that's the fantasy. 

This reality tv news of corruption and scandal is just so much eye-wash that no one will do anything about.  And that is the reality.  As intensely as the GOP hounded Clinton from day one and the bandwagon that the media rode in, this scandal which is infinitely worse, will have a proportionally non-intense Dem pursuit and media disinterest.  Mark my words:  This too shall pass, and sooner than later.  Can this one lobbyist bring down everyone from Tom Delay to that pipsqueak religious spokesperson Ralph Reed?  Excuse me for being cynical, but like I say, its too good to be true. 

Plus, the Dems are just too timid, too "politic" to rip the GOP a new arsehole even though they have the opportunity handed to them on a silver platter.  The GOP house of cards built upon the shallow hypocrisy of the religious right ought to fall, and the Dems could damage the GOP as the GOP damaged Clinton et al, but for one reason... they lack the balls.  Plain and simple.  The Dems ain't got the nutz to drive it home.  They refuse to play hardball with the GOP even when the GOP leadership is utterly contemptuous of the law and any standards of public decency. So while the GOP is ripe for plundering, the Dems are placidly beneath contempt....except for Jack Murtha....bless him. 

I'm part of that "blame America first" crowd, and so be it.  I'm in good company with Socrates, Jesus, Paine, Gandhi,  Mencken, King, and RFK...each of whom defied the prevailing status quo and proposed an alternative vision of what humans could be.  I love my country which is why I despise its leaders. 

Ok, I'm done for now.  Sweet dreams...I wish.....Lou

“GO VEGAN with BOB LINDEN”
… to debut on San Francisco Bay Area

960-AM-KQKE / “The Quake”
…start date: SUNDAY JANUARY 29 6 PM

  “GO VEGAN with BOB LINDEN” celebrates its 5th anniversary
on-air in mainstream media as the voice of compassion for animals,
children, and the environment with its debut on SF Bay Area airwaves
THIS SUNDAY January 29 on “Air America” affiliate – 960-AM-KQKE
January 29th…

Program host Bob Linden, veteran broadcaster and animal rights
advocate, said: “This is the first-and-only program of its kind to present
topics and ideas – and guests and organizations - that rarely, if ever,
gain exposure in the establishment ‘meaty-uh’ – yet are those that
offer real solutions to the problems of our day – war, world hunger,
disease, violence, environmental devastation!  This program explores
the solutions, which are found where nobody is looking - in kindness
to animals.

“I’m a big fan of AIR AMERICA! AIR AMERICA is the popular, new,
and exciting ‘progressive talk’ network featuring people like Al Franken
and the fabulous Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy who are wonderful, but,
unfortunately are meat-eaters ( poor victims of propaganda, themselves);
and its ‘progressive talk’ midday host boasts that he is a ‘gun totin’,
meat-eatin’ liberal’ (hunter). So, GO VEGAN RADIO hopes to make a
valuable and necessary contribution to what ‘progressive talk’ is, 
and suggest that going vegan is also walking the walk!”

Writing Framework for Success

Providing your readers up front with a blueprint for your piece which clarifies the structure of your document and outlines what it will cover, suggests Edward P. Bailey, Jr., builds reader comfort and enables them to spend their energy concentrating on your content.

"While it may seem a bit mechanical," explains Bailey in his book Plain English at Work: A guide to Writing and Speaking (New York: Oxford University Press, 1996) 69, "a blueprint which makes your structure clear to readers is a huge benefit." Blueprints are especially important, he notes, for documents longer than a page or so.

Here are Bailey's tips for writing good blueprints:...

Thanks Larry...
By the way, yesterday I lost my job, again!
Is all politics!  I should be used to it by now, but it never stops to impact my psychic!!!

The current political landscape has been escalating so rapidly that most people are really not taking notice of the fact that the Democratic Party was the first Imperialist/racist force in the history of this Country, and that the Neo-Con experience is no more than an offshoot in rebellion to some (few) over time, within the Dem Party who have resisted silently its historic root platform.  ...Democracy has never existed in the US!

At the helm of the Neo-Con Coalition, along with the usual suspect as William Crystal, et al, there is a formidable consortium of Dem Blue Dogs/ Right Wings like former US VP Senator Joseph Lieberman, former US President William Clinton, and list is most impressive...

So the continued cover up of these truths have been maintaining a perpetual climate of falsehoods permitted throughout the so called "Social Justice" majority Activist groups.  For the exception of the few in the 3%, who do know and understand otherwise, but continue to be marginalized by the one Radio channel of communication we desperately nurture as Pacifica.
This demonstrates, I dare say, a lack of true evolutionary vision!!!  When  98% of its programming is much influenced by a Democratic/Liberal platform, than, other voices trying to enter the political fray are not given equal access, except at the fringe, if they have an in at the Station, if not right at Election day for comments!

As if this is not a clear violation of Pacifica's "Mission Statement"!!!
All third parties must be nurtured in earnest, to fully contrast the historic two Party concentration/dictatorship...
To shot down any more future efforts by the Democratic party to sabotage Mr. Ralph Nader/Dennis Kucinich and the likes from running a US National Presidential Campaign.  However, let's be clear, Kucinich  sold out his Campaign to the DNC (Democratic National Council/Committee)!!!  I personally worked hard as a volunteer in his Campaign even before his announcement to run, but no more!  I resigned the Dem Party, and I have been a defiant Independent since then...

                        I say we need a collective intellectual Evolution, short for Revo....
                        I continue my Lobbying efforts for Pacifica to reverse its traditional stand  in this area, and others...

                        In solidarity,
                   Love/Peace/Force

LORETTA SCOTT KING-WIFE
THANK YOU BOTH
FOR OUR
   COLLECTIVE RIGHTS
Brief, rewritten by Bella De Soto from an article in the LA Times in 2003.
At a perilous time of history in LA, following the Riots in 1992, a unique space of land (14 acres) was considered/designated to provide much relief to an already disenfranchised community around 41st Street/Alameda.
Through an agreement bet. The City of LA & the LA Regional Food Band, the 2nd-largest distributor of free food to the urban poor, to use these 14 acres as a community Park Garden. 
Henceforth 11 years, 347 families have been partaking  in this venture as organic farmers, forming a most formidable environment.  By harvesting an assortment of organic vegetables, essential to any diet, which feed each family, who's make-up is bet. 5-8 members, as also benefiting the nearby residents.
Now, for political gains, this effort is being used as a bargaining chip, by some LA City Council Elected Officials!!!
We need your help, your signature will show Elected Officials, that the community at large cares.

Arlington West Memorial at Santa Monica Beach, California
2 YEARS & 324 DAYS ... AND WMD HAVE NEVER BEEN FOUND
Each and every Sunday since February 15th 2004, this memorial is set up on the sand just north of the pier at Santa Monica Beach by the local chapter of Veterans for Peace and other volunteers as a way to acknowledge the costs and consequences of war as an instrument of international policy.  Also erected in the sand is a "wall" now about 45 feet in length similar to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.,  listing all the fallen American military personnel since the U.S. invaded and occupied Iraq to the present day. Visitors can read any of the many names, ages, rank, hometown and circumstance of death, and are invited to select and write the name of a fallen military person on a piece of paper along with any thoughts or sentiments and attach this to a cross along with a flower. Many family members and close loved ones have come and dedicated their own words and mementos of their loved one.

CHECKPOINTS KILL PALESTINIANS,
OR ANY OTHER POPULATION!!!

There are over 100 Israeli Checkpoints in the West Bank!
This form of collective punishment against all Palestinians is criminal in its face!!!

· Denying their Freedom of Movement.
· Leading to the Physical Abuse, Harrassment, and Humiliation of Palestinians.
· Preventing Palestinians from Getting Emergency medical Tratment.
· Destroying the Palestinian Economy.
· Preventing Students from Attending School.
· Stopping the Flow of necessary Supplies into the Region.
· And Paid for by Your Tax dollars.  The US Funds Israel's Military Occupation of the West bank and  Gaza Strip by Sending over Three Billion Dollars a Year!  Another Three Billion are Sent from the US by Private Donations.

INTRODUCTION
Palestinians have areal grievance: their homeland for over a thousands years was taken, without their consent and mostly by force, during creation of the state of Israel.  And all subsequent crimes-on both sides-inevitably follow from this original injustice.

Voluminous documentary evidence shows that what really happened was that the Zionist movement, from the beginning, looked forward to a practically complete dispossession of the indigenous Arab population so that Israel could be a wholly Jewish state, or as much as was possible.  Land bought by the Jewish National Fund was held in the name of the Jewish people and could never be sold or even leased back to Arabs (a situation which continues to the present).

Some personal concerns with 90.7 FM - KPFK's selective on air personalities...

Sadly, there are many at KPFK subscribers who don't seem to comprehend the politics controlling the Station and the Foundation!  because they have either hosted, and/or been guests at public forums where top Chamber of Commerce executives have promoted their agendas, and not in the interest of 
poor communities!   For instance, Mr. Eric Mann of "The Strategy Center -Bus Riders Union"
(forming a Liberal National Think Tank, and Political Party), Co-Hosts "The Voices from the Front Line" airing Mondays 4 PM on KPFK-90.7 FM Radio.  Also "The Strategy session" Host Antonio Rodriguez, airs every Monday 8 PM on KPFK  FM Radio.   These folks are just some of the strongest cheerleaders for the Democratic party, along with Maria Armurian.  And  then ther's The Nation Magazine, which has for neons influenced Pacifica into a somewhat Liberal timid/much controlled structure, and its best reps are Suzi Weissman/Jon Wiener-"Beneath The Surface" weekly segments @ 5 PM., and Mark Cooper with "Radio Nation", which aired on Fridays 7 AM, but his program was recently moved to Radio America, and per his comments to me, "I don't care much for Air America, or KPFK!"

I only want a fare sharing of the air space for the many other voices left out in the dark without a place to share their other points of view, or visions!!!                Bella  3/09/06

Latinos gear up to show solidarity
By Felix Sanchez, Staff writer
http://www.presstelegram.com/news/ci_3767125

LONG BEACHAt El Gallo Giro, a Mexican-food restaurant that has been packing in large crowds since opening several weeks ago, the predominately Latino employees were gathered together last week and asked a key question.
It is a question Latino workers around Southern California and the United States have been getting for days: Are you coming to work Monday?

For the El Gallo Giro staffers, about 50 in all, the answer was a resounding, "No." Only four said they wanted to work instead of participating in the planned "Great American Boycott 2006" by immigrant workers and those supporting immigrant rights on Monday.

Similar responses have come at dozens of Latino supermarkets and restaurants around Southern California, and hundreds of businesses elsewhere. All of which has experts predicting that Monday's boycott, and protest rallies in Los Angeles and around the country, will have unprecedented attendance.

The rallies are set for 11 a.m. in downtown Los Angeles, at Olympic and Broadway, and then at 4 p.m. with a march from MacArthur Park to the La Brea Tar Pits.

The management at El Gallo Giro located at Long Beach Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway was more than happy to allow its employees to miss work. Some, like floor manager Virginia Mendoza, even plan to attend the rallies. But it does mean the restaurant will likely have to close for the day.

"Our company always respects the opinions and rights of our employees," said Luis Diaz, El Gallo Giro district manager. The restaurant itself is hugely popular among the L.A. area's immigrant population.

"We won't take any disciplinary action against them. If they want to go to the rally, they have the right to do so," Diaz said.

Gauging how many businesses will have to close down, or be severely impacted, has been tough for some executives.

But Steven Soto, president of Mexican American Grocers Association in Los Angeles, said that after a day of meetings with independent store owners and workers on Friday, he expects the numbers of stores closing down will be "unbelievable."

"It's gonna be a big thing on Monday," Soto said.

At least 4,000 of the association's 16,000 members across the United States will be closing down to allow workers to join the boycott, Soto said.

In Southern California, smaller chains like Northgate Gonzales Supermarket and Big Saver Foods will voluntarily close down as a show of solidarity with their employees. In Texas, La Michoacana Stores will close all 78 of its stores in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.

"I had no idea that our members were going to respond in this fashion," Soto said.

The impact will be widespread, he said, with food and beverage distribution chains upended, meat and vegetable deliveries disrupted. One deliveryman unloading cheese at El Gallo Giro said every Latino restaurant he had visited Friday was going to be closed Monday.

And it's all for a good cause, Soto argues.

"A lot of people didn't think this would happen. That's part of the point. To show this is what we can do. This is the power that can be exercised," Soto said. But some small-business owners aren't as enthusiastic.

Eli Patronas, who runs the Lucky Star Cafe at 17209 Central  Ave. in Carson, said he can't afford to close down his restaurant. It's a decision he's close to having to make because most of his 10 workers say they will not show up for work on Monday despite his pleas that he would take a big economic hit.

"I told them I understand the situation. They said they want to shut down the economy and I told them you're not really hurting the economy, you're hurting me," Patronas said. "I'm a mom-and-pop business. I'm not corporate America."

Patronas said he'll try to keep the nearly 30-year-old restaurant, including 15 years at the current location, open by using friends and family members as staff on Monday.

"My father was an immigrant," said Patronas, who is Greek. "I understand their cause. I'm not upset at them. I am willing to work with them. I told them let's just keep a few employees to keep me open, so you don't have to completely shut me down."

While some cities have made projections for how many employees will be missing from work or how many students will walk off their campuses Monday, local authorities said from their viewpoint, it isn't clear how much of an impact the boycott will have on Long Beach.

Extra police officers will be brought in to boost patrols around local schools and the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The Long Beach Police Department's operations center also will be open, said Cmdr. J.J. Craig.

Police say they've gathered street intelligence that shows students and truck drivers who deliver goods from the ports are the most likely to participate in May Day activities. Although many are talking about possible demonstrations, there is no way to calculate how many people will actually participate, Craig said.

The Long Beach police force will not be on tactical alert Monday, but, "if we do need to, it would be a very quick transition based on the plans in place," Craig said.

The Long Beach Unified School District will have its emergency-operations center running Monday morning and will keep in close contact with law enforcement authorities, said district spokesman Chris Eftychiou.

"We have been communicating with the parents … and students through the schools that school is still the best and safest place for them to be," he said.

Transportation officials also are telling residents to prepare for disruptions in travel because of the boycott and anticipated immigration rallies.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority expects service disruptions in downtown Los Angeles and along Wilshire Boulevard on Monday, with Metro bus service on Broadway and Hill street interrupted beginning at 10:30 a.m.

TRUCKER ISSUES NATIONAL/WORLDWIDE...
By Bella De Soto

Since 2002, I have been documenting much instability within and around
Immigrants working as Truck Drivers at  the LA Ports, which include the
Long beach Port and the LA Port (LB & San Pedro, CA).

There's a significant segment of the US population who daily, make
possible our consumption of goods and services, which would otherwise
cripple the very veins of what we have come to know as "Mass consumption"
"Capitalism" of goods and services.  If the US population continues to ignore the plight of this underground population, then so too must they rebel against unjust US immigration policies, because they make up the larger portion of the 12 Millions of immigrants in the US, forced out of their respective homelands in South/Central /Caribbean Americas regions due to lack of economic opportunities in their countries....

But why is this???
Why are there never any Politicians addressing the root cause of this devastation imposed upon them without their consent!!!!!!!!!!

Well, the simple answer is that most to all those men and women who run/enter the US political fray (Democrats/Republicans) have never ever been taught Geopolitics.

So what is Geopolitics, and how did I, who has never studied Political Science, been able to reach such awareness at the fair age of 53, and prior????

Some of us are born with a certain heightened awareness of things we ourselves can not fully comprehend at the time, but yet it spears us ahead into an area that usually holds a solitude of being, not of common membership!

Therefore, we're looked upon as an enemy, or worst!  But I assure all concerned, that I, in every possible manner  teach/plant a small seed in each single individual I come in contact with, from a bus rider waiting to board, to the Hair Stylist at the local shop, to the corner Church (any denomination). At churches, I wait for the right time, I then shout; "why don't you teach the parishioners gathered here about the politics of the day that impact their daily lifes??????" 
Shortly, as expected, I am asked to vacate the premise for questioning their deceitful system...

RELIGION=CAPITALISM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(10-08-04) OPEN LETTER TO ALL PARTIES CONCERNED
~~TRUCKERS UNITED~~
Our ancestors fought tirelessly in this country
for the right to organize Unions
and ensure that our government recognizes this right
because it is a fundamental cornerstone in any democratic structure.
Because of these efforts, the working person has been able to work and
secure amongst several basic human rights, safe working conditions, benefits,
and most important,
the right to influence our Nation's foreign and domestic policies
to reflect the Worker needs.
However, alarmingly, the most important worker population segment,
namely "Truckers", that insure the daily delivery of goods and products
to the consumer, have been ignored during the drafting of political policies,
which significantly impact their welfare in all respects.
Conveniently, this multitude of Workers have been classified as "Owner/Operator",
so to strip them from qualifying for Worker's Comp./Health Ins. coverage,
and all other benefits derived from an "Employee Status ".
We are now facing tragic levels of abuse, both by the Port Authorities,
and by the same Trucking Companies that subcontract them
under the so called " Owner/Operator" vicious class !!!
"We Truckers, can no longer stand idle,
while we continue
to sustain these enormous burdens
imposed on our livelihoods and personal well being !!!"
From the current Diesel high prices, to the City/road & other Taxes,
harassment by the traffic officers, pollution levels, Truck Ins.,
Chasis maintenance costs, dead lost time waiting to load/unload
without compensation, to poor worker treatment.
Hourly Rates have not been adjusted in Ten Years!!!
Enough is enough...  Si se puede...
Action is the only way...
Join today, The IWW
(Industrial Workers of The World) efforts like in Stockton, CA,
where on October/04, the Truckers gained close to 70% of their demands,
and successfully worked to reverse two IWW members' job removal
at the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe rail yard and negotiated a favorable settlement
of a strike at the 11-driver Patriot Trucking Company.

A BETTER WORLD IS POSSIBLE, BUT IS UP TO EACH OF US TO ENGAGE IN THE POLITICS OF THE DAY, WHICH IMPACT US ALL FROM DAWN TO SUNDOWN AT THE LOCAL LEVEL.

THEREFOR, WE MUST THINK GLOBALLY & ACT LOCALLY.  OUR AWARENESS MUST DRIVE US TO POSITIVE ACTION (ACTIVISM). TO ALERT AND STOP ALL THE SOCIAL INJUSTICES IN OUR LOCAL TOWNS, NATIONALLY

FBI Spying on SOA Watch

The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Georgia last week released new evidence that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is conducting counterterrorism investigations into School of the Americas Watch. As we’ve seen time and again when the FBI targets social change organizations, the files demonstrate a clear attempt to stifle political opposition.

In the released documents, the FBI noted that “the [SOA Watch November vigil] has grown dramatically over the past several years.” The FBI elevated its concern to “priority” level and subjected SOA Watch to “counterterrorism” surveillance. The Bureau monitored the media attention that the annual November vigil and the trials of people arrested for nonviolent civil disobedience received, and agents noted which court tactics had chilling effects on people’s decisions to participate in civil disobedience.


Instead of responding to political opposition with political means, the U.S. government is responding to it as a threat. This same type of mindset responds to Latin American protests against social inequalities with the training of repressive militaries at the School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC).

When military action is the default solution for any problem abroad and the FBI is being employed against social justice activists in the United States, it becomes vividly clear that none of us are safe. The actions and values of the U.S. government are out of alignment with the majority of the people of the Americas.

2006 Lobby Days a Success!

On April 24 and 25, torture survivors, students, nuns, veterans and other SOA Watch activists flooded the halls of Congress in Washington, DC to knock on doors for hundreds of meetings with staffers, Representatives and Senators. At the same time, many of you called in to Congress to ask for support of HR 1217. Because of your efforts, we've already added two new co-sponsors to the bill to suspend training at the SOA/ WHINSEC!

NOW IS THE TIME TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!

Email your Representative today. A new feature on the SOA Watch website allows you to send an email to your Congressperson directly from our site. Click here to send your email today.

Call Congress toll free at 888-355-3588. Make sure your Representative knows that people in her district support human rights and HR 1217. Ask for her support and her vote. If your Rep has already signed on, take a minute to thank him for his support.
The SOA Watch Lobby Days were preceded by workshops and trainings at American University that included a panel featuring terrific speakers from partner organizations, workshops, a theater piece, and an update from Father Roy Bourgeois. Lobbying began in full force on Monday following a spirited march to Upper Senate Park, where musicians performed and speakers from the Torture Abolition Survivors and Support Coalition, the Nicaragua Network and others addressed the crowd.

About the School of the Americas / Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation

The US Army School of Americas (SOA), based in Fort Benning, Georgia, trains Latin American security personnel in combat, counter-insurgency, and counter-narcotics. SOA graduates are responsible for some of the worst human rights abuses in Latin America. In 1996 the Pentagon was forced to release training manuals used at the school that advocated torture, extortion and execution. Among the SOA's nearly 60,000 graduates are notorious dictators Manuel Noriega and Omar Torrijos of Panama, Leopoldo Galtieri and Roberto Viola of Argentina, Juan Velasco Alvarado of Peru, Guillermo Rodriguez of Ecuador, and Hugo Banzer Suarez of Bolivia. Lower-level SOA graduates have participated in human rights abuses that include the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero and the El Mozote Massacre of 900 civilians. (See Grads in the News).

In an attempt to deflect public criticism and disassociate the school from its dubious reputation, the SOA was renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC) in 2001. The name change was a result of a Department of Defense proposal included in the Defense Authorization Bill for Fiscal 2001, at a time when SOA opponents were poised to win a congressional vote on legislation that would have dismantled the school. The name-change measure passed when the House of Representatives defeated a bi-partisan amendment to close the SOA and conduct a congressional investigation by a narrow ten-vote margin. (See Talking Points, Critique of New School, Vote Roll Call.)

In a media interview, Georgia Senator and SOA supporter the late Paul Coverdell characterized the DOD proposal as a "cosmetic" change that would ensure that the SOA could continue its mission and operation. Critics of the SOA concur.

SOA Watch is a nonviolent grassroots movement that works through creative protest and resistance, legislative and media work to stand in solidarity with the people of Latin America, to close the SOA/WHINSEC and to change oppressive U.S. foreign policy that institutions like the SOA represent. We are grateful to our sisters and brothers throughout Latin America for their inspiration and the invitation to join them in their struggle for economic and social justice.

Issues
(Feel free to call us for information about any issue that
you don't understand or are not familiar with...our PAC process is
a learning process, not a test)

1.        What does feminism mean to you, and what are the qualities that make up a feminist? Do you consider you're a feminist? 
I guess I have always been a Feminist, but did not give it much thought, till one day some yrs ago, while having a challenging chat with a male counterpart. While I found his assertion, an affront when misinterpreting women qualities as self dependent, forthright, self esteem, etc., I became irate that I had to defend not only these very viable characteristics, but also identify my persona as such…

2.        Are you "pro-choice?"  Absolutely, and without negotiations in the matter!  Currently there's a petition going around sponsored, certainly by the religious zealous fanatics, who do not respect a woman's right to choose, to make her own critical decision without extremities from a hostile exterior.  I turn 52 on 3/06/05, and I too, made a difficult choice on a couple of occasions, while living in NYC for many years, because I see no reason to foster a child onto a not suitable situation all around.  To date, I am childless, and can no longer give birth, but it was my experience, not any one else's !

3.        What is your position on the following issues?  State whether you support or oppose the following public policy proposals and feel free to explain your position: 
* See my explanation to each of these measures attached.
(a) legally imposed waiting periods for the termination of pregnancies (I oppose this measure)
(b) legally required spousal and/or parental notifications  (I oppose this measure)
(c) bans on specific termination procedures, such as so-called "partial birth"  (I oppose this)
(d) residency requirements    (I oppose this measure, because restricts the services to some)
(e) restrictions on government funding for family planning/termination    (I oppose this)
(f) codification of Roe vs. Wade   (I oppose this measure)


4.        How many beds are available in the jurisdiction in which you are running for battered women and children?  What will/can you do to increase available facilities or improve the quality of those already standing?

5.        Do you support the Equal Rights Amendment and how will you work for its passage? (For further information on the ERA see www.now.org)

6.        a) For candidates running for re-election: What have you done to elect (and appoint) more women and more feminists to positions of public service? What are your plans for future appointments?

Commentary by the Author - Jan B. Tucker

       The importance of the above proposed model ordinance is based upon some 23 years of investigative experience, both defending and opposing police officers accused of misconduct, conducting plaintiff and defense civil investigations, and rising within the private investigative community to service as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the California Association of Licensed Investigators (CALI), the world's largest organization of private eyes.

       I have built some basic value judgments into this proposal.  For one, rank and file peace officers deserve independent, public scrutiny over their own grievances with management to protect them from undue influence by the brass and politicians.  For this reason, I have built in representation for the officers themselves and expanded the traditional scope of the "police commission" to include authority to investigate and address these grievances.  Another value judgment is respect for the voters' right to elect commission members and by-pass the mayoral-council appointment systems in the usual commission.

       Certain aspects of this proposal, e.g., who gets hired to conduct investigations and how they are to be trained, is based upon the simple fact that police departments are not the fountains of all wisdom.  Private investigators have different training and different approaches, often gained after a career in law enforcement.  A combination of approaches to the investigation is best and a smart commission will have both police and private investigators work side by side in a team to get the best of all worlds.

       The requirement that victims of Information Practices Act violations be notified and questioned seems like a no-brainer, but the LAPD had two Lieutenants "investigate" illicit access to personal records of over 200 persons (myself and now-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger included), without ever bothering to inform or question the victims.  Had they done so, they would have learned that the illegal acquisition by an LAPD investigator of my home address coincided with Swastikas being painted on my car, obviously a relevant factor.

       Finally, I have included a requirement that the police officially adopt the 1999 guidelines for eyewitness identifications which were promulgated by a task force of prosecutors, law enforcement, and others throughout the United States which worked at then-Attorney General Janet Reno's request to design techniques which would help prevent wrong identifications which lead to the conviction of the innocent and to the guilty going free (all too many cases cleared after conviction and prison sentences by DNA results were based on eyewitness identifications and testimony).  Some police departments have come around gradually to using these techniques.  Others, like Long Beach, have confirmed in writing that they have no policies, procedures, or guidelines at all in response to a California Public Records Act request.

Policy on Child Care

       Making quality child care available to all Californians is a high priority for SFV/NELA NOW;
A significant component of quality child care is to mitigate the current high turnover rate of child care employees due to low wages and benefits causing discontinuity and loss for the children affected;
       SFV/NELA NOW has endorsed the campaign of Local 99 of the Service Employees International Union which has launched a major campaign with national backing of the labor movement to organize child care workers throughout California;
       SFV/NELA NOW wants immediate study and implementation as feasible of the following legislative goals by the California legislature, by the federal government, and by municipal and county authorities:

·        The California legislature can promulgate a model zoning ordinance requiring  or recommending mitigation of child care impact just as large commercial or residential developments ought to provide for mitigation of parking and traffic impacts on communities.

·        Employers can be encouraged to provide on-site child care as a benefit to employees by giving them a tax-credit while employees should be encouraged to use the benefit by making it a non-taxable benefit; the federal government should be encouraged to adopt similar tax policies.

·        Any new housing development should be required or encouraged to incorporate child care centers within them.  One way of encouraging this development would be to provide for a progressive property tax formula. Under such a formula, the property taxes imposed on the community would be eligible for a discount on the basis that child care facilities were constructed and put to use.  This would be something that developers could advertise as an incentive to sell homes in such a community.

·        The same use of progressive property taxation could apply to commercial developments and could be made available to existing real estate that opened child care facilities on-site and for that matter, for any existing residential development that implemented an on-site child care facility that did not detract from existing uses (one would not want to encourage a landlord from turning a recreation room into a child care center simply to get a tax break).

·        In housing developments, community participation should be encouraged by requiring that residents be given a right to vote on the initial implementation of a child care plan, similar to the rights of members of Home Owners Associations in common interest developments.  Community members ought to be given the right to vote on alternatives such as coop-child care or contracted out child care.

·        To the extent that any incentives are offered by government, they should incorporate preferences for facilities that are unionized and which minimally pay a living wage, to implement the public policy goal of not having high turnover of staff, which in a child care facility, causes discontinuity and emotional loss for the children.

Against all Zionist propaganda – Presbyterians move forward towards divestment
Worldwide Activism, Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign, June 25th, 2006

Despite strong pressure from powerful Jewish lobbyists, the Presbyterian Church’s (USA) 217 General Assembly has maintained its determination to use divestment to pressure international corporations that support the Occupation - where the “customary corporate engagement process” fails.

Two years ago the church made headway by adopting a resolution calling for "phased, selective divestment from corporations that profit from the illegal occupation of Palestine."
The Zionist lobby worked intensely over the last years to reverse that decision. The church, however, has been able to maintain unity in the face of these attacks, modifying its language in a new resolution that does not rescind the 2004 resolution.

Passed on June 21st by a vote of 483 in favour, 28 opposed and 1 abstention, the new resolution asks "that financial investments as they pertain to Israel, Gaza, East Jerusalem and the West Bank be invested in only peaceful pursuits, and calls for the customary corporate engagement process." At the end of the customary process lies divestment. The resolution was an alternative to an overture that sought to repeal and rescind the actions of the 2004 General Assembly relating to "phased selective divestment in multinational corporations operating in Israel."

It is worrying that the Zionist lobby has been allowed to dictate the words that can be used within the church when it comes to Palestine. It is saddening to see that the church is still trying to maintain an approach of even-handedness and balance between the oppressed and the oppressor in the makeup of its speaker panels, reports, resolutions and even within its divestment process. The time still needs to come when the church will be ready to unmask the “Israeli/Palestinian conflict” for what it really is – a colonial occupation and apartheid regime aimed at the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. The day that the church recognizes Zionism as a racist ideology, it will be able to place the divestment process in a framework that acknowledges the reality of the situation in Palestine.

Yet the dinner held by the National Middle Eastern Presbyterian Caucus on the occasion of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church featured some important interventions.
"It is time now that we start using the word apartheid," Rev. Donald Wagner, director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at North Park University in Chicago, told attendees during his speech. "In fact, it is worse than apartheid."
Wagner highlighted the global dynamics enforcing Palestinian dispossession and demanded that "We have to unmask the face of the empire.” He said that “We are called to stand against” an "empire" that uses weapons and the international media for its gain. Wagner said that the phased, selective divestment process which the denomination began in 2004 has "touched a nerve. We are touching an empire, both in the U.S. and in the Middle East. We need to hold the course now on divestment."
Chad Ellertson, a teenager who was part of a group of Presbyterians who toured Palestine on both sides of the Green Line in April, embarrassed the shallow rhetoric of “constructive engagement” and “dialogue” with a simple question: "Who will speak from behind the wall?"

Though there has been no movement away from the course of divestment that the churches have taken in the US and Europe, there is still a long way to go before the Christian world is ready to take the necessary stands and make space for the truth.

The MERCOSUR and Apartheid Israel – an Alliance stained with Palestinian blood
Analysis, The Grassroots Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign
June 13th, 2006 -- The MERCOSUR as the most important bloc in Latin America claim they work in pursuit of democracy and human rights within their economic and political relations. In the next month, Mercosur is about to sign its second Free Trade Agreement (FTA). It will sign it with Israel, the state that has expelled us from our lands, has violated all Palestinian rights and international law for over 50 years and is now enclosing the remaining Palestinian population in ghettos between 8 meter high walls.This raises the question in Palestine and over the world: What does the new era in South America stand for?

REAL HISTORY

A four part (2 hours) lecture series Part one/four
THE MYTH OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS
As the United States government claims to spread democracy around the world and is deeply involved in ghost writing constitutions for other countries, the spotlight falls back on this country. Is the current US system a democracy, - has it ever been one? In The Myth of the Founding Fathers Michael Parenti takes us back to the early days of the republic. Who were the founding fathers, what were their goals in writing the US constitution? Whom did they exclude and whom did they favor? What was their attitude towards slavery? How many of them actually wanted to create a monarchy? And who - in the end - ratified the constitution after it was written?

Part two/four
THE SPANISH AMERICAN WAR AND THE RISE OF US IMPERIALISM
Michael Parenti uses the history of the Spanish American War to answer several very intriguing questions. Who first expressed the desire to annex the island of Cuba - and when? Why was the US government concerned about Spanish repression of the rights of Cubans while the repression of African Americans within the US was ignored? Why did the US attack the Philippines when it was Cuba they supposedly wanted to rescue? Why did the US give verbal support to the Cuban liberation movements against Spain while selling weapons to Spain to fight the popular movement? The Spanish American War was an important turning point in the transition of the US to an imperial power and many of the forces at work are eerily contemporary.

Part three/four
THE FUNCTIONS OF FASCISM
Parenti says that fascism is a pseudo-revolutionary movement that serves the same old power structure and promises to solve the ills of the many while really protecting the interests of the few. He answers in detail who financed the Fascist parties and what services the fascists rendered in return. Many of the measures enacted by fascists were frighteningly similar to those enacted today: They include the privatization of state owned enterprises, reduction of corporate taxes and inheritance taxes, defeat of unions, and the suspension of civil liberties.

Part four/four
THE REAL CAUSES OF WORLD WAR II
Who inside Germany was resisting the rise of Hitler and why were they not supported by Britain and France? Why did the Western Allies allow Hitler to take over Austria and Czechoslovakia? Why did Britain and France refuse to enter an anti fascist alliance with the Soviet Union? Why did Britain and France do nothing while Hitler conquered Denmark and Norway even though they had finally already declared war against Germany in 1939. The West, says Parenti, saw Hitler as a bulwark against communism and the Soviet Union and were hoping that the two countries would bleed each other to death.

Topic  Description
Democracy, What Went Wrong?  A series of commentaries on the issues, institutions, and political affairs of the day. Drawn from his research and presenting the highlights of his work, the series responds to the limits that are currently being placed on democratic self-determination. Parenti comments on major institutions such as the military, the CIA, media, corporations, universities, police, and the Supreme Court, offering suggestions on how to regain influence and control. (Recorded in 1995) (Each tape is one hour long 12 lectures, 29 minutes each Total running time: 6 hours Broadcast-quality cassette copies are $40 for the complete set of 6 tapes.)
The Cost of Empire  The name "empire" was reserved for the Romans or the Russians. Though not commonly called by that name, the US is the largest empire, with global military and economic presence. Parenti explains that those who reap the benefits are not those who bear the extraordinary costs of maintaining the US Empire.
A Republic Against Caesar  Who was Julius Caesar, a dictator or a populist? And who really was Brutus, who murdered him on the Ides of March? A young hero or a participant in a deep seated conspiracy? This intriguing lecture by the noted author, speaker, activist and scholar Michael Parenti provides surprising new insights and parallels to today that are both shocking and amusing. 
  
Two Talks per Tape

Made in Our Own Image

Bella says  ¬®   Religion = Business (Capitalism)
Ala/Jesus Christ (Jesu Cristo)/Mohammad/Jehovah, the Bible, etc., and all Mythical Deities have been created over the centuries as security blankets, but to spouse & foster false security.  Prophets are not Gods, but mere MORTALS Men/Women, and Gods do not exist...  But we Humans, are high beings, therefore, are the high ones.  Is time we take this responsibility...  Professing falsehoods has kept the World population in a stupor of blinded devotion, difficult to relinquish.  Until we take the step to analyse this critical matter, we Humans, will never be able to reclaim our personal / individual supreme values...

Fundamental to consumerism/commercialism is Religion = Business/Capitalism...
God was fabricated by the World Gentry to rule the rest... 
Please wake up everybody...  
The lure of consumerism is the sleeping giant...    
Our sub-conscience has been contaminated since in the womb,
that we humans have no inner strength except derived from some
external supernatural higher being as a supreme reality! 

Of course, in any Religion/Church we are taught not to even think about
any earthly matters because "That other supreme being!!!" is the only one
who holds the lever...

That all our earthly concerns are of no consequence in the now, but instead to not
worry our tiny heads, for we can not change anything!!!!!!!!!!!   (The gentry can!!!!!)

What bull is this???????????  I am a person of supreme value!  Therefore, I matter, therefore, my surrounding must concern me, and all those in that space, etc,etc,etc...

Brotherhood/Sisterhood?  No thanks, not in this Club!  Sadly, all those in it can't bring them selves to see the reality!


Religion = Business

The Religious Roots of
Anti-Semitism
with Paul Kurtz
R. Joseph Hoffmann
Eddie Tabash
and Reuven Firestone
__________
Sunday
January 7, 2007
11 a.m.
     The roots of anti-Semitism run deep  into the past, and find nourishment in the soils of both Christianity and Islam. Indeed, the Qur'an and the Bible have laid a foundation for centuries of persecution of Jews all over the world. From well before the Crusades to well after the Holocaust, these religions have themselves been instrumental in encouraging anti-Semitic attitudes and policies.

     How can these texts which are considered sacred by so many millions be the cause of o much bloodshed and injustice? What messages do these books send today?

     The Center for inquiry-West has invited a stellar panel of authors to address these questions and more on Sunday, January 7, 2007. Participating in this program will be Philosophy Professor Paul Kurtz, father of secular humanism, founder of the Centers for Inquiry and author of many books on religion and ethics; R. Joseph Hoffmann, Academic V.P. of the Center for Inquiry-Transnational and author of Jesus Outside the Gospels; Reuven Firestone, Professor of Medieval Jewish History at Hebrew Union College, author of Jihad: The Origin of Holy War in Islam; and Eddie Tabash, orator, debater, and Honorary Chair of the Center for Inquiry-West.

$6, or free for Friends of the Center.
Tickets available soon.

WARNING..  AMERICA: FROM FREEDOM TO FACISIM... Movie By Aaron Russo-& Interview link bellow...
Description: Video and description taken directly from http://www.consciousmedianetwork.com. Please visit the website for MUCH more information on other such topics and interviews. "Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, Aaron Russo began promoting rock and roll shows at local theaters while still a high school student. From there, he worked for his family's business, opened a night club in Chicago where he helped create the careers of such legendary acts as Led Zeppelin, The Who, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. No stranger to success, Aaron was the first Hollywood Producer to command $1 million for his services, with titles such as 'Trading Places' and 'The Rose' after a seven year partnership with Bette Midler, whom he managed to become the superstar she now is. Aaron has now stepped out and produced a radical new movie called 'America: From Freedom to Fascism' and it has received standing ovations in theatres from all around the country in its test marketing. Destined to be one of this years great movies, he takes things way further than Michael Moore and proves that the there is nothing in the tax code that says you have to pay tax on your labor. Now it's time for you to decide for yourself. Do we stand up for our constitutional rights or do we bury our heads in fear from political and social pressure."

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez waves to supporters after he voted at a polling station in Caracas, Venezuela, today.
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Hugo Chavez won re-election by a wide margin Sunday, according to official results, giving him another six years to solidify his self-styled social revolution and further his global crusade against U.S. influence.
With 78% of voting stations reporting, Chavez had 61% to 38% for challenger Manuel Rosales, said Tibisay Lucena, head of the country's elections council.


Chavez had nearly 6 million votes versus 3.7 million for Rosales. Turnout was 62%, according to an official bulletin, making the lead insurmountable.


Minutes after the results were announced, Chavez appeared on the balcony of the presidential palace singing the national anthem.



"Long live the socialist revolution! Destiny has been written," Chavez shouted with abandon to thousands of flag-waving supporters under a pouring rain.

Chavez said he would try now to deepen a revolution that has spread Venezuela's oil wealth among the country's poor.

"No one should fear socialism," Chavez proclaimed. "Socialism is human. Socialism is love."

Even before polls closed, Chavez supporters celebrated in the streets, setting off fireworks and cruising the capital of Caracas honking horns and shouting "Chavez isn't going anywhere!"

A top Rosales adviser, Teodoro Petkoff, said early Sunday evening that the voting "was carried out in a satisfactory manner." He said some irregularities had occurred but most were resolved. Another member of the Rosales camp had accused pro-Chavez soldiers of reopening closed polling stations and busing voters to them.

The vote was monitored by observers from the European Union, the Carter Center and the Organization of American States.

Since he first won office in 1998, Chavez has increasingly dominated all branches of government and his allies now control congress, state offices and the judiciary. He has called U.S. President George W. Bush the devil, allied himself with Iran and influenced elections across the region.

Chavez also has used Venezuela's oil wealth to his political advantage. He has channeled oil profits toward multibillion-dollar programs for the poor including subsidized food, free university education and cash benefits for single mothers. He has helped allies from Cuba to Bolivia with oil and petrodollars.

Rosales, a cattle rancher and governor of western Zulia state who stepped down temporarily to run against Chavez, has rebuilt the opposition from its referendum defeat.

During the campaign, Rosales accused Chavez of edging Venezuela toward one-man rule. He focused on issues such as rampant crime and corruption, widely seen as Chavez's main vulnerabilities.

Chavez supporters jarred voters awake hours before dawn in Caracas with recordings of reveille blaring from truck-mounted loudspeakers.

"We're here to support our president, who has helped us so much," said Jose Domingo Izaguirre, a factory worker who waited hours to vote. His family recently moved into new government housing.

Rosales supporters accused Chavez of deepening class divisions with searing rhetoric demonizing his opponents.

Alicia Primera, a 54-year-old housewife, was among voters so passionate about the choice that they camped out overnight in voting queues.

"I voted for Chavez previously. I cried for him," Primera said. "Now I'm crying for him to leave. He's sown a lot of hate with his verbiage."

The campaign was hostile, with Chavez calling Rosales a pawn of Washington and Rosales saying he was on the alert for fraud. Rosales' campaign had endorsed the electronic voting system as trustworthy — as long as no attempts were made to thwart it.

More than 125,000 soldiers and reservists were deployed to safeguard the balloting.

In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Janelle Hironimus stressed "the importance of a free, fair and transparent process."

Conflict and ambition have marked the rise of Chavez, 52, from a boy selling homemade sweets in a dusty backwater to a failed coup commander in 1992 and now a leader who could set the tone of Latin American politics for years to come.

Constitutional reforms he oversaw in 1999 triggered new elections the following year that he easily won. Loyalists helped him survive a 2002 coup, a subsequent general strike and a 2004 recall referendum.

Chavez says he would convene a commission upon re-election to propose constitutional reforms, likely including an end to presidential term limits. Current law prevents him from running again in 2012.

Some Rosales supporters worry that a re-elected Chavez would turn more radical. Chavez insists he is a democrat and will continue to respect private property — though he has boosted state control over the oil industry and has said he might nationalize utilities. Venezuela is the world's fifth largest oil exporter and soaring oil prices have made it South America's fastest growing economy.

Chavez has pledged at least US$1.1 billion (euro830 million) in loans and financial aid to Latin American countries in the past two years, and billions more in bond bailouts for friendly governments as well as generously financed oil deals. But the largesse has proved a weakness at home, with polls suggesting many Venezuelans believe the aid impedes efforts to address the country's own problems.

Chavez, who says Fidel Castro is like a father to him, has built increasingly close ties with Cuba, sending the island oil while thousands of Cuban doctors treat Venezuela's poor for free.

ALWAYS AGAINST THE TIE...
NOT EASY WHEN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY MAINTAINS
PERPETUAL SHACKLES ON A NAIVE POPULOUS, WHO CONTINUES VOTING AGAINST THEIR INTEREST EVERY TIME THEY VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS... 
IF THE FEW LIKE KUCINICH / LEE & MCKINNEY WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING AND JOIN BERNEY SANDERS-INDEPENDENT, VT.  NOW RUNNING FOR THE US SENATE TO REPLACE SEAT HELD BY A FORMER REPUBLICAN SENATOR, JIM JEFFORDS, WHO BAILED OUT AND BECAME INDEPENDENT WHEN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TOOK OVER THE HOUSE/SENATE IN 2000, AND BEGAN PUSHING DRACONIAN LAWS...

So who is owed all the respect and thanks for always exposing NOT JUST the Liberal intelligencia in the US, but of course, the ruthless ways of the conservatives (but mostly all Neo-Cons)????  * HOW DARE ANYONE EVEN SPEAK OF MR. RALPH NADER IN THE SAME BREATH OF Democrats/Liberals!!!  * Who is Emperialist?  Liberal Democrats that's who!  Who is Emperialist?  Conservatives that's who!  Who is Emperialist/Fascist?  Neo-Cons That's who!
Ingnorance kills... Wake up all, is a new dawn!  * Why did the democratic Party invested so much money to sue Mr. Ralph Nader in olmost every State of the union, to of course prevent him any possible edge ????  * Why did they?    More shameful still, the so called "legal Liberty Unions for Social defense" all, declined to assist him and his team, TO FIGHT BACK THE POWERFUL DEMOCRATIC MACHINE, so who could he get help from but from some Republicans with a heart... Of course, this was most ideal for the Democratic Party to also use in their insistent false propaganda toward Mr. Nader!  To be continued.
