Fox reporters talked over Annan, rather than let the viewers hear what Annan was saying and decide for themselves…. He listed a number of areas where the rule of law is not being applied, including civilian massacres in Iraq in cold blood…. We must look into our collective conscience and ask if we’re doing enough to strengthen the rule of law.
Robert Greenwald has released the interviews from Outfoxed under a Creative Commons license, inviting others to remix the interviews to tell their own story about Fox. Robert had wanted to release the full film for remix, but fears about enabling the reuse of original Fox materials got that idea stopped. But you can download and rework the interviews from archive.org here.
So, shamefully, I’ve contributed to this irrelevant question blog (“Mr. President, how many times have you been arrested?”), but I can’t begin to describe fully how depressing this presidential campaign has been…. So I really don’t care how many times he was arrested, I don’t care if he used power to escape his obligations in the Reserve — whether he should be our President depends only upon whether the policies he will pursue are good for this nation…. But we’re not electing a captain for a military unit — if shots are fired, he will follow orders, not give them — and while it would be great if he could find a way to articulate why this war was wrong, the presidency is not a reward for great Senate testimony.
“A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon it adds up to real money.”
Is it true? This won’t be a surprise to Nation readers, but with Congress back in session, the White House and the GOP majority are pushing hard to continue shortchanging America’s public schools. A memo leaked from the president’s budget office shows deep cuts planned for nearly every education program in 2005.
–a friend who switched from windows (not capitalized on purpose) to a Mac (a 15 inch PowerBook)!… He was just humoring me (with eyes rolled up in the air) when I told him he would really get into music on his new machine and eventually demand an iPod…. He had ripped 3 more CDs before I ever got home.
This video is disturbing to say the least. Click here to see it…. And, am I the only one who remembers the huge anthrax scare?
I saw this movie, What the Bleep, this weekend and highly recommend it….  The movie does an excellent job of taking the very complex and abstract and making it accessible and meaningful….  Well, ummm, it’s about creating possibilities that empower by setting you free of anything that holds you back.
I fear he will go a long way down the road of destroying the funding for public education and other essential public trusts that must never ever for any reason fall into the hands of “privatization” for ideological or financial profit…. I fear we will continue to lose access to the truth from the media as they work the agenda of the extreme right wing who continues to gain greater levels of control over our only source of information and the Republican party…. I fear George Bush will continue to set an example in which “christian” people feel it is OK to dehumanize people with whom they disagree, threaten or exert physical violence when they don’t get what they want, lie, and focus on material gain over social responsibility.
• We must move beyond jargon and rhetoric and provide a safe space in which we can honestly listen to (not just hear) and discuss each position’s fears and hopes…. • We must at all times be open to the reality that each moment, each experience, each encounter in our lives is an opportunity to lead us into transformation…. The Bill O’Reilly model is to simply disrespect into disgrace, vilification, and humiliation, which makes me want to get in his face and demand it all stop.
I pass by these signs frequently and am always amused…. This picture doesn’t do the signs justice as they are much closer together than they appear. Since the small sign is hard to read in the photograph, it says, “No stopping or parking anytime.
Both my walks in the Forest yesterday and today were awesome. Yesterday morning I was out in the woods early, 7:30am. The temperature was 61º.
The roof of the house only had minor damage, a few limbs punctured the back patio roof, and a few shingles on the back side (south) were blown off of the house…. She said that a significant number of the large old trees were destroyed in the neighborhood, including half of the huge oak tree in the front yard on the property line between her house and her new neighbors who had just had the yard landscaped…. Peggy said in the message that Aunt Marge’s house was not damaged but that the large cedar trees in the yard (which had been there since my mother was a little girl) were destroyed.
These pictures, from the AJC, astound me. This bridge is just a few miles from my home. Still no word back from mother about the house.
I have used a couple of GUIs as a front end to my Movable Type blogging software. I liked ecto a lot…. A new beta version is out.
She decided to stay in Pensacola and weathered out the hurricane in a shelter at her church…. She asked that I contact some relatives to let them know that both she and Aunt Floyce are fine…. The sistoid unit had a lot of bad wind and rain as the hurricane moved through Montgomery.
It has a few “issues” still (hence it’s in beta) but is cool and will be a great product…. They have been lurking in the background all this time while I have worked on them. Now, while not at all polished and complete, they are sufficiently ready to go live.
