Chronicling community action, revolutionary and revealing thought

Sunday, November 26, 2006



Anyone remember the tatters left behind when George Bush announced his "No Child Left Behind" endeavour, that did the exact opposite?

Apparently, recycling is popular: Mayor David Miller went one step further:-
"And I will remain committed to the idea that no individual, no community, no neighbourhood can be ignored, marginalized or left behind."

I'm just gonna curl up in this here dank corner, and suck my fingers, ok...?

A Picture's worth a thousand words

No need to say anything when a pic encapsulates all the deal-making and how false the left-right political spectrums are, and what's the real significance of Rumsfeld resigning: simply the machine just changing outfits, or more to the point, their makeup (as in cosmetics).

Hyperbole? You decide:-

Mission accomplished, make the momentum go to the "left", make 'em hop from the frying pan into the fire...

As the last link almost gets right: "The Rumsfeld resignation is not a sign of desperation or surrender in response to Democratic Party heat. It was a long-planned tactical move that strengthens the Bush administration's inner circle... The Bush administration has done what it has always done: replace a political liability with something even more dangerous, a loyal insider to the very highest positions of authority."

The 'almost'? There's no slapping of the face going on to the Democrats, no openly provocative act of daring. Or any need to. It's to the rest of us out of reach of the annals of power.

Chavez isn't the only one saying Bush and the power elite are endangering the rest of the human race; the last words of the article say "If Robert Gates does with his new Pentagon power what he did at the CIA during his previous tenure, the world is in for tremendous suffering and death, and more covert and overt warfare -- all well-'managed,' packaged and sold to Congress," and states further that Gates "is a criminal who is capable of uniting the elite consensus."

"Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything." -Josef Stalin, Russian Dictator

"The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes."-Felix Frankfurter, U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Maybe they're born with it; maybe it's Maybelline?
