“Who” is the “Terrorist?”

Friday, January 20th, 2006

This morning on CNN there was a report about “environmental terrorists” being charged by the Department of Justice for crimes they had committed over the past few years. CNN kept harping on the term “environmental terrorists” when referring to the people being charged. Let me set the record straight…these people may have committed crimes and may well be criminals but they were committing crimes AGAINST “environmental terrorists”.

Environmental terrorists are people or organizations who terrorize the environment. It is the big ugly factory that is pouring toxic chemicals into our rivers that is the environmental terrorist. The person who tries to stop this terrorism may be committing a crime in the process but is in no way a terrorist. Let’s get that straight once and for all.

Whose side is CNN on when they ignore the environmental terrorism being conducted by the targets of these alleged criminals? They, along with all the corporate media are indeed on the side of the powerful corporations whose mission is to make money regardless of the damage done to our world in the process. Think about it!

If She Dies, Blame the US News Media!

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

If the independent journalist who was kidnapped in Iraq is killed the fault lies directly with the mainstream corporate news media. Had the media done their job and reported what needs to be reported two things would be different. One…we would not have invaded Iraq because the lies would have been exposed (and perhaps the administration would be in prison for their involvement in 9/11). But even if we did go to Iraq independent journalists would not have to risk their lives to report news because our corporate news media would already be doing that.

Independent journalists are dying in Iraq for one reason…because the corporate news media are not journalists.

The New American Century. Will We Ever Recover From It?

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

I keep reviewing in my mind the many areas of life in America during this new millennium. I contemplate the state of the nation when it comes to everything from the cost of living to the state of the environment. I review all the legislative changes made over the past 5 years as well as the international standing of our nation. I think of the assault on the common person and the increased power of the tyrannical corporate and governmental powers in this nation. Sadly, the only word that I can think of when evaluating the changes to all of these areas of American life is “recovery!” Very simply put every aspect of life in this nation has gotten so much worse for the common person that I can not imagine how we could ever recover from the damage done. I can not think of a single area that has actually recovered or improved during this “New American Century!”

Say what you want but there is no more accurate comparison when it comes to the price paid by our nation than that between Hurricane Katrina and the actions of the Bush/PNAC administration with the help of the Republican & Fake Democrat Congress. How will we recover from the damage? Think about it!

Al Gore. Think about it!

King Had a Dream; We Have a Nightmare!

Monday, January 16th, 2006

He had a dream and we have a nightmare! If Martin Luther King, Jr. were still alive what do you think he would be doing? Which social outrage would he be championing? Just trying to pick one is enough to cause a nervous breakdown!

Mr. King had a clear and easy decision to make when it came to causes. Racism was a social institution that needed to be ended. Today, we have so many social, economic, corporate & political institutions that need to be ended one could go insane trying to figure out which is the most important one to address. I wonder if Mr. King was alive if he would wish he was back in the good old days when it was easy to spot the injustice in society, less challenging to find informed people who supported his efforts to correct that injustice, and we had a news media that was not one of the most damaging injustices as it is today. I wonder if he would think back to those times as the good old days for he only needed to dream back then; today he would need to awake from a far more complex nightmare! Think about it!

When Peace is Our Enemy, it is Time for Radical Change.

Sunday, January 15th, 2006

When peace groups become the enemy of the state what does that tell you about the state? It seems to me that there is no doubt that our nation is securely in the hands of the military industrial complex. These people thrive on war, conflict & fear. People of peace are a threat to their agenda of greed.

When peace becomes a bad word and when intellectual thinkers are ridiculed by our leaders and their supporters, radical change is in order. Evil is winning the battle for control of United States and it is a home grown evil, not the kind of evil our unquestioning radical American flag wavers have been tricked into believing. It’s time for change. Radical change; before it is too late! Think about it!

Mad Max, Meet Our Children!

Friday, January 13th, 2006

2 interesting items were discussed on MSNBC this morning. One story was about the 300 millionth American will be born shortly according the Census Bureau. The other story was an in depth discussion on Angelina Jolie’s pregnancy and here relationship with Brad Pitt (a new item that is vital to our informed electorate…ha ha ha!)

What was not mentioned on this national news network was the warning from the Worldwatch Institute stating that Earth lacks the water, energy and agricultural land to allow for the kind of growth that is taking place. Of course many others, including I, have warned that we are creating an unsustainable existence but the warning by Worldwatch came yesterday and is timely news.

To all of my friends who are thinking of or actually having more than two children….DON’T! You will be contributing to the demise of civilization as we know it. I just hope your children or their children don’t have to ask why nobody listened to the warnings from a community that resembles the ones depicted in the Mad Max movies! Think about it!

Cheney to A.I.D.S. Victims: “Your Money, or Your Life?” - Bill Clinton to the Rescue!

Thursday, January 12th, 2006

While Bill Clinton (DEMOCRAT), has been working on deals that would allow AIDS victims in Africa to get life saving drugs the media forgets to remind you that Dick Cheney and the Bush administration (NOT REPUBLICAN, they are NEOCONS), have worked to do just the opposite. In their usual style of cold hearted greed the Bush administration, most notably Dick Cheney, already stopped similar efforts that would have prolonged millions of lives (of non-white people!)

Once again we have an example of how the Bush administration has been heartless, greedy, acting in the interest of lobbyists over the people of the world, un-Christian and downright despicable. Once again we have an example of how Bush supporters have no idea what a horrible man their leader is. And once again we have an example of how the media ignore reality. Think about it!

  • US wrecks cheap drugs deal - LINK - Dick Cheney, the US vice-president, last night blocked a global deal to provide cheap drugs to poor countries, following intense lobbying of the White House by America’s pharmaceutical giants. - TVNL Comment: Is there anything nice one can say about Cheney? He seems to be the Devil incarnate to me!
  • Clinton in Deal to Cut AIDS Treatment Costs - LINK - Former President Bill Clinton plans to announce today that his foundation has negotiated lower prices on AIDS tests and on two important AIDS drugs.

Bush Lied Over & Over About Troop Count Requests From Iraq! US Media Silent!

Wednesday, January 11th, 2006

How many military brass representatives have we seen paraded on our news programs? How many of them either supported the Bush administration completely or have taken to addressing the situation in Iraq as it stands, not as to how or why we got there and what we did once there?

Now count how many military brass representatives, current or retired, American or British, have you SEEN ON TV who oppose the Bush administration’s venture and have exposed the lies of the Bush/PNAC/Blair cabal? NONE! That’s right, the members of the military, no matter how senior, who have exposed the lies of the Bush administration where it comes to Iraq, are not welcomed on our news programs.

Remember the “Diplomats and Military Commanders for Change?” Where are they? Where is the UK General who said this week that Blair should be impeached for the lies that led to war in Iraq? Where is Paul Bremer who just this week admitted that he had requested 3 times the number of troops in order to stabilize Iraq, only to be turned down by Rumsfeld and ignored by Bush!!!

Holy cow…how big a lie are we living and how big a role is the US media playing in that lie? Think about it!
