“Asteroid Hits Earth, Millions Die—GOP Says Clinton Responsible”
21 May 2004
Bill Clinton has been blamed by his detractors for just about everything from curdled milk to genetic mutations. But might there be a more recent president whose own record of misdeeds puts Clinton's to shame? Read the following for why it just may be time for Clinton critics to quit caterwauling.

Commentary :: Human Rights
Self-defense is a right and responsibility
21 May 2004
Below are two articles I feel are an important contribution to the current situation in this country. I am a firm believer, due to real-deal, living personal experience with the agents of repression, in the right to defend oneself from harm.
Don’t get it twisted: I’m NOT down with political adventurism, random attacks on people I disagree with politically, or public posturing with loaded weapons. But I also see that the progressive community is woefully unprepared for the increasing repression coming from the government and its right-wing allies; mostly due to its general unwillingness to face the issue realistically, practice good strategy, and promote self-preservation; especially amongst the youth. Remember, “freedom” is only a concern of the living!
The Jacksonville Anarchist Black Cross teaches and advocates armed self-defense. I personally teach and advocate unarmed self-defense. Feel free to contact Jacksonville ABC (jaxabcf (at) attbi.com) or myself (gregoryclewis (at) yahoo.com) for more info.

Queer theory and violence against women
21 May 2004
I want to talk about how queer and ‘postmodern’ theory has affected the ability of feminists and lesbians to organise against, or even to recognise violence against women. In queer and postmodern theory, based on liberal individualism, important forms of violence are renamed ‘transgression’, ‘choice’ or ‘agency’. I shall concentrate on 3 forms of violence here, men’s prostitution abuse of women, the violence of transsexual operations, and the violence of the ‘body modification’ industry.

Help to Stop Global Warming The Day BEFORE Tomorrow at Your Local Movie Theater
21 May 2004
Ideas for Action at you local movie theater for The Day After Tomorrow movie
The Day After Tomorrow is a movie that, while not realistic scenario of global warming, gives it as a cause and is a great opportunity to get global warming to be put in the forefront of public discourse where it belongs and get the necessary things done to reduce it to minimize its effects and suffering from them.
