why swap boxes?
08 Oct 2006
why do the streets need swap boxes? What is art and who defines it? In these times of increased fear and privatization I wonder what the public sphere even means anymore. If the notion of public space as something we can all collectively define is to die, it will be because we as a people have put our heads down and forgot about that world outside ourselves.

Is the October Surprise a Major Escalation in the War for U.S. Global Dominance?
08 Oct 2006
The Bush administration has recently succeeded in passing legislation that makes it easier to round up and torture American citizens, among others, and now it seems to want to start World War III. One can't help but wonder if threatening the entire planet (plans have allegedly been drawn up entertaining the nuclear option in Iran) is this administration's way of dealing with a very bad month of revelations.

Christian Political Leadership, Hypocrisy, Duplicity, and Purposeful Evil
07 Oct 2006
If Christian leaders are going to go around attacking others for not living up to their professed values, it's a damn good idea to be truthful and actually walk the walk. Logs and motes in the eye, camels through the eye of a needle, glass houses, kettles and pots, and what goes around comes around, et al. Karma's a bitch when She finally decides enough is enough!

Asa Hutchinson,Charlie Crist:Two Republicans covering up far right drug trafficking ?
07 Oct 2006
I do use the term 'cover up' with reason.Both Arkansas gubernatorial candidates either know Republicans and Republican connected business fronts,mainly penny stock scams are both defrauding investors as well running drugs.The Republican 'company', Skyway Communications of Lakeland, Florida demonstrates this all too well.I wonder why Asa or Crist never managed to bust no big time Republican drug traffickers ? They may turn out to be the biggest whether in Mena Arkansas of Iran Contra days....or Afghanistan opium or the Republican 'company' Skyway Communications busted in Mexico in April with over 5.5 tons of cocaine on board for example.......
