heinous actions

heinous: hatefully or shockingly evil

so. now instead of dropping leaflets telling hundreds of thousands of people to leave their houses because they would be destroyed and then killing people as they left as the leaflets suggested - folks are told they better not dare drive a car to get away. more killing those who either were unable to leave or chose to stay because they felt that being part of the human family they were no less entitled to the protections of international law than those attacking them.

telling people to leave an area or be killed is not a legal or morally valid strategy, if resistance fighters from the occupied territories did the same i can't imagine anyone would imagine that made it acceptable to destroy major population centers in israel. hey - didn't al queda announce that the whole globe is a free fire zone? if we apply the same logic that israel is using , if we don't leave the planet we are legitimate targets, and hey, even if we do leave we are legitimate targets even while flying white flags and trying to get out as ordered.

what is going on couldn't continue without u.s. financial military and political support and the murderous powermongers in the US aren't trying to gloss over their bloodlust. calling the slaughter "birth pangs" of a new middle east or an opportunity.

my tax dollars are helping to pay for the gunships, missiles, ammunition, the killing of over 1000 people, destroying civilian infrastructure including power stations - transportation systems - cutting off all routes for aid, and hey, if aid shipments make their way in, bombing the aid trucks.

human rights watch -indiscriminate attacks against civilians in lebanon

WAR CRIMES are war crimes - doesn't matter who commits them. and gee- two wrongs don't make a right.

all the trouble they're having over there

...Another Georgia Republican, Representative Phil Gingrey, said support for traditional marriage “is perhaps the best message we can give to the Middle East and all the trouble they’re having over there right now.” nyt

ok. now i understand why instead of calling for Israel to stop its war crimes the u.s. is just getting its people out of the way so the killing and destruction of infrastructure can continue for another week or so until 'the time is right'.

They had a secret plan -once the congress sent the best message - queers can't marry here - all the trouble they're having over there would be answered. and damn it all, the congress failed.

laura bush answer to aids - better reading comprehension skills

In remarks to the recent UN meeting on HIV AIDS , Laura Bush defended the US blocking of key proposals for fighting aids. the fundamentalists in the US have joined with their muslim counterparts in being more worried concerned with (en)forcing thier own concept of religious purity than saving lives.

She told the assembly -"All people need to know how AIDS is transmitted, and every country has an obligation to educate its citizens. This is why every country must also improve literacy, especially for women and girls, so that they can make wise choices that will keep them healthy and safe."
But, while the US wants to educate people about "the ABC's" - Abstain, Be Faithful & Use Condoms, they reportedly pushed for the removal of phrases like "sex workers" or "men who have sex with men" from conference documents, preferring to refer to "vulnerable groups" instead. NYTimes
Sounds like it could be a bit on the Colbert Report, All You Need to Know is.....

From the Mail & Guardian
Hilary Benn, Britain's international development secretary, who flew to New York last night and will address the UN general assembly today, distanced himself from the US approach.

He said: "We have to take action on the evidence of what works, on what saves people's lives, and not on ideology. That means making condoms available and reducing harm to people at risk: injecting drug-users, sex workers and men having sex with men."

so. now , like the "few bad eggs" that were charged for carrying out the policy of torture of people kidnapped by the u.s military or mercenary employees - a "small number of marines" have been chosen to take the fall for carrying out the murderous policies of the bush regime. everyone in responsible for their own actions , and i'm not suggesting a free ride for the folks who did the killing and torture for the bush regime. but those who train, employ and give orders to those being sent to "war" with the mission to use -- or threaten use of -- force or violence against individuals or property to coerce or intimidate governments or societies to achieve political, religious, or ideological objectives cannot then divorce themselves from the results of their orders.

National Spook Agency won't confirm nor deny my existence

Aah. i love the smell of the police state in the morning. Back in January I sent out Freedom of Information Act requests to various spook agencies in the US asking for any and all information (blahblahblah & etc.) they had pertaining to antiwar organizations, meetings activities etc. in Ohio , as well as requests for a few specific groups in the NE Ohio area. The FBI, Secret Service and the Defense Intelligence (sic) Agency all had the decency to pretend to try to answer the request - saying they had searched some list of major cases and there were no case files assigned specifically to the organizations I asked about. Except for the International Socialist Organization - the FBI has some files that may pertain to my request, but they haven't figured out what they might or might not send along to me.

Not the National Spook (Security) Agency. They took almost two pages to basically tell me to piss off - the president says they don't have to tell me. takes lots of words to try to perty up a load of manure and pass it off as some sort of rational legal justification. The full text can be found at the http://www.suejeffers.net/mabl/NSAFOIA.htm - but here's a few excerpts....

As you know, the President of the United States "authorized the National Security Agency [(NSA)], consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution, to intercept the international communications of people with known links to al Qaeda and related terrorist organizations." The President also noted that, "[t]his is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security."

Rest assured that safeguards are in place to protect the civil liberties of U.S. citizens. However, because of the highly classified nature of the program, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records responsive to your request. The fact of the existence or non-existence of responsive records is a currently and properly classified matter in accordance with Executive Order 12958, as amended.

Now, I was told by some rightwinger that the government had some really bad people to spy on, and it was ridiculous to think they would bother with the little old antiwar folk . I happen to agree, it is ridiculous that a government would spend their time and resources spying on us, and it would be nice if they would realize their error and stop all on their own. it also would be nice if my dog would learn english and stop barking. But the thing that bothered me about this letter is their assertion that they can do whatever the hell they wish and we (their employers) shouldn't bother our pretty little heads about it. rest assured, its for our own protection. It seems to be a form letter - we can't tell you if we're spying on your meetings or bugging your headboard - cuz that would help al queda.

I will be appealing, not so much because i believe there are records (but i wouldn't be suprised) but because i refuse to accept the bullshit that the decider is king, and won't have my employees telling me what they are doing is none of my business.

tongue speaking senators

oh god help us - whichever deity, force of nature or whatever source of strength one may draw upon. got somewhat off track following links to other links etc. tonight and wandered into a scary little world of mentally unhinged charismatic preachers who brag of access to lawmakers and warmakers. now the one fellow does also brag of routinely raising people from the dead , being levitated in his bed, healing people of all manner of physical damage and illness. oh, and his young child apparently can make people fly by waving a rag at them. frequently throughout his rambling account of his accomplishments, he would yell out "holy ghost", or a line of gibberish . sometimes hopping up and down and making noises like cleveland brown's fans barking at a game.
so, just because he claims he's spoken at the pentagon and to the congress and that he is welcome at the whitehouse isn't necessarily to be taken as the 'gospel truth'. but he claims that there are groups of 'tongue speaking ' lawmakers that get together - perhaps this explains the patriot act, energy policy, the recent immigration "reform" bill, etc.

also god seems to have annointed him to live his wife's life for her, and remarked at the beginning of one of his rambling speeches that he woulda brought his wife along but she had to stay home to plan their daughter's wedding. after which he said she probably didn't understand why, but who cares, not him.

oh no! the devil is in my computer - the video from last year's marysville WA appearance is distorted and cutting in and out. must be another case , as he spoke of in the last performance i scanned, of demons attacking him and his message. and just when he was getting into his story of being in pakistan because the people there wanted him to leave with them the ability to raise the dead. holy ghost holy ghost.
oh those demons - they released me from the terribly unpleasant blahblahblah from this self absorbed arrogant delusional twit.

targetofopportunity.com - update

it was called to my attention that now the fellow who specializes in publishing the personal information , home addresses, work place, and sometimes home addresses of close relatives of people he doesn't agree with, along with not so veiled incitements to violence against them - is using a private registrant for his internic info.

so ,
targetofopportunity.com is the creation of David Meyer

which is not the art dept. fellow at the university

my suggestion would be, do not approach. if you're walking your dog in the area, cross the street lest he may feel you are one of those people should be "stopped" and decides its time to "make history"

from his site:

"This is a call to action! These anti-American liberals
are dangerous people and need to be stopped!
One person can make a big difference!!!

There are those that read about history.

There are those that make history.

Which one do you want to be?
These people and organizations are Enemies of Freedom,
the American people, and the American way of life!!!
Each and every one should be considered a:
"Target of Opportunity"! "

the hit site is at least temporarily down,
possibly the hosting company had a problem with the content violating their terms of service agreement, which includes
Defamatory or Abusive Language by using our network as a means to distribute, transmit, facilitate or post defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language or anything that a reasonable person would regard as hate speech or literature. This includes language or other activity that significantly prejudices, creates a hostile bias, or grossly defames a class of individuals.

i would imagine that david will just move to another server til they realize that it violates their legal terms also. but companies do frown upon people using their server space to encourage people to eradicate other humans and providing information on how to find them -(even if they are liberals) .

fire the bastards

every day there are more bastards refusing to account for their criminal activities on the grounds of "national security" or some other spurious claim, supposedly to protect the unique "democracy" or "freedom" reserved for some priviledged segment of the u.s. society. this is all done with no sense of disconnect, that if this really is a system "of the people, by the people, for the people" etc. the PEOPLE are the employers, those in the government are their employees. again, in a sane world, if an employee would tell their boss to piss off, what is done in the employers name is none of their business, and if there are any more questions the employer will be harrassed or kidnapped, chances are pretty good that employee would be looking for a new position.

a recent idiocy from the bush is that we, as their employers shouldn't be upset at them for violating us, they will continue violating us, but instead of worrying about being violated, we should be upset at whoever let us know what was happening.
the notion that the "bad guys" don't assume that the spooks are trying to figure out what they are doing is ludicrous.
national security is used as an excuse all the time as a cover for simply embasarassing or illegal activities, trying to scare folks into submission.

one cannot protect something by destroying it.

Homophobic Telemarketing Strikes Again

I hadn't heard of these folks before, but got an email from a friend last night - seems they've been harrassing folks for fun and profit for some time now. an autotelemarketer asks for you to press 1 if you want to stop same sex marriage, if you press 1 your sent to United American Technologies so they can sell you phone service. Profits are then used to fund various right wing agendas, like convincing people that god hates fags.

if anyone wants to call and help keep their staff busy fielding questions instead of making outgoing calls, the number is below.

another writeup on the folks can be found http://homohusbandry.blogspot.com/2006/02/its-late-and-i-reserve-right-to-edit.html

message from a friend...

Dear Friends,

I was very upset when I came home this evening to find an anti-gay
message on my answering machine. The message included lies about gay
people and said that same-sex marriage will destroy the family. The
message said, "If you want to stop same-sex marriage, press 1!" I
waited for the message to end, and then I pressed star 69 to get the
number. It was 877-266-6277. I called the number back, and the
people said, "National Organization to Stop Same-Sex Marriage." I
told them what I thought. One man told me that according to the
Bible, God hates gays. I told him that I do not want this bigoted
group calling my home ever again.

I am so upset by this, I am still shaking. I would urge people to
phone the number and tell these people what you think, but that's
entirely up to you. Perhaps it's better to ignore them. I don't know
if they are Fred Phelps' group or not. But it was awful to hear this
message in my home.
We have tracked down the group that left the anti-gay message on my
answering machine. They are a phone and internet company that
markets to conservative "Christians" and gives money to right-wing
political candidates. They are called United American Technologies.
When you go to the news page on their website, you get the picture:


This is "Christian" marketing with an anti-gay focus. What a
caring "Christian" thing to do.......make profit and raise money for
right-wing candidates by attacking a minority group and appealing to
people's prejudice. I'm sure Jesus would be thrilled.

This company is not just anti-gay; they fund the right-wing
politicians that we are working against.

Call for Bush to Disarm and Renounce Violence

bush is called upon to renounce violence and disarm.
as george said, "I know you know you can't be a partner in peace if you have, if your party has got an armed wing,". elections "are not a whitewash for terror".

would you be an unlawful combattant?

so. for those in the us, if something happened and the u.s. no longer dominated the world military scene to the point that an armed attack lasting more than a day would even be contemplated
- even if you weren't a member of the official armed forces- and some fuckers came rolling thru your development snatching up some guys between the ages 14 and 50, shooting others, bombing main street in ravenna and front campus at ksu because there were military installations there - but using 2 tons of precision guided' ammunition each time, taking out a large residential areas - would you consider resisting the occupying forces to protect your neighborhood? if the occupiers attacked the vfw hall` bombed the ohio edison offices, "took out" the akron canton airport and inadvertantly 1/2 the population of green township and "accidentally" destroyed davey high school at lunch time and carpet bombed downtown columbus - if the standard of justice the u.s. feels justified in imposing on the rest of the world are followed you best just learn to sit still and open wide.

any resistance is a war crime , and according to bush justice, the fact that you were ever suspected of a crime proves you are guilty and subject to be jailed til the endless war comes to an end without ever being charged. or maybe you could just die during torture.

see - whatever those with the most power want to do is legal by definition. anything that impinges on their ability to do whatever they wish to do is a crime.
or maybe someone down the street would like you gone. just tell someone you're trouble and you're gone probably forever.
