9/11 Truth movement devises new strategy
13 Feb 2006
You, the (mainstream) media, are legally complicit in fraud, malfeasance, treason and crimes against humanity which this current shadowy power structure has committed. You have violated law and the Constitution.

You are guilty of using the technique of branding anyone who exposes these issues as a "conspiracy theorist" to cover up actual, historical conspiracies.

South America's largest squatted highrise building is under threat.
13 Feb 2006
833053.jpg09 Feb 2006 18:02 GMT

The "Prestes Maia", by far the largest squatted highrise building on the South American continent, is under threat of eviction. With its 468 families, accounting for more than 1600 previously homeless people, including children, elderly and disabled, the building will shortly be returned to its 'lawful' owner, Mr. Hamuche & Co., who in the last 15 years of 'ownership' accumulated a debt in municipal taxes of some 5 million reais (approx. 2.2 million dollars / 2.1 million euros), which is more than the building is worth. This enormous debt, together with long years of abandonment, should well justify (even according to law) a claim for the building to become public property by the local municipality, but nevertheless will be returned to its owner, putting hundreds of people back onto the streets.

The 468 families, united in the Downtown Roofless Movement (Movimento Sem Teto do Centro or MSTC) of São Paulo, have lived in the 22-storey highrise since 2002. The building had simply been closed down for years and left in deplorable condition, serving as shelter for rats and cockroaches, as is the case of many buildings in downtown São Paulo. The new residents cleaned out tonnes of rubbish and litter (200 trucks to be exact!), organized it, expelled drugs and other criminal bosses always there to take advantage, turning it into an exciting and lively human dwelling.

Bush budget targets 141 programs for elimination or drastic cutbacks
13 Feb 2006
The Bush administration released a detailed list Thursday of the federally funded programs it wants to cut or eliminate outright from its proposed 2007 budget. The White House has embarked on a public relations campaign to promote its budget plan, which must be approved by Congress.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) list includes 91 programs to be killed off altogether and another 50 slated for major cutbacks. The administration aims to trim an estimated $15 billion in spending on these “discretionary” programs, i.e., programs which must be funded by Congress every year.

Along the way, I learned that many people say things so assuredly that other people naturally follow, believing incorrectly all the while that the speaker must know something they don't. Such is the case that follows, wherein the author had no idea that people have different values, and thus value things differently:
