How to Revive a Spiritually Dead America in One Easy Lesson!
05 Feb 2007
America is going down the toilet! Question: What are you going to do about it? The Russian writer, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, urged his people, in 1974, to take on the Stalinists remnant and to “Live Not by Lies.” Today, America is languishing under the Bush-Cheney Gang, Masters of Deception. “Obedience to lies,” Solzhenitsyn said, robs a people, keeping them “in the herd and a coward.” Remedy--”Live by the truth...It is the only [choice] for a soul.”

21,000 Troops To Become The Latest Guinea Pigs For Pentagon
02 Feb 2007
In light of President Bush’s determination to send an additional 21,000 plus troops to Iraq, regardless of the position of Congress and the American people, the citizens of the United States must be made aware of the ongoing experimentation and outright disregard for our American troops. With nearly thirty-six percent of our Gulf War I troops disabled, we must hold those responsible for such negligence accountable for these atrocities.

MPAA ratings affect a film's distribution and thus its financial success; this, in turn, limits what kinds of movies get made and what people get to see at the local movie theater.

The rating system was designed to provide information to parents and movie-goers, but it too often results in arbitrary, inconsistent, and unreasonable decisions, which chill filmmakers' creative freedom and keep films away from audiences.

02 Feb 2007
Modified: 04:02:58 AM

For the city's arrogant pride and ignorant over-reaction, he may face deportation, imprisonment and possibly torture in Belarus, a country well known for its human rights abuses.

Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab's 200 Executioners Ready
01 Feb 2007
Gay or straight, bisexual or transgender, black or white or Asian, it makes no difference to the cold blooded murderers at Livermore as the employees mindlessly carry out their proscribed "tests" and "detonations." After all, the money's good, why would they ever ask anything?
