9.11 investigation

Happy New Years, Groovy Radicals!

Happy New Years, all you groovy radicals who persist!
Happy New Years! Let's resolve that 2004 is the year when the 9/11 Cover-up and the Bush Regime (same thing, brothers and sisters!) finally crack! And that an anti-war and pro-constitutional-civil-rights counter-culture is reborn!

Love and Peace,
Dancing Dave

The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.
- H.L. Mencken

Digger

As Gerrard Winstanley, one of the English Diggers - who through exemplary direct action demanded the abolishment of private property and encouraged the poor to reclaim the commons - wrote in 1649: "Thoughts and words ran in me that words and writing were all nothing, and must die, for action is the life of all, and if thou dost not act, thou dost nothing."

"we are called to act as if we truly believe that the Earth is a living, conscious being that we're part of, that human beings are interconnected and precious, and that liberty and justice for all is a desirable thing. "

I too miss the portland radical community. When everyone else was running away from trouble, we were running toward it. I saw the radical take the Portland freeway on the day of bombing. I saw it because I ran beside the most courageous people I have ever met. We ran toward this day of bombing, outraged and believing that we could be useful in our state of outrage. Sometimes we de-escalated potential violence, sometimes we were holding a clear intention in the midst of chaos,and sometimes we were just witnessing to protect the other. But, mostly our acts on the day of bombing were because we were creating community on the day that evil doers were trying to destroy any attempt at community or cooperativeness. They are the anti-community, the ones who try to keep us separate, keep us slaves to thier global investments, the ones who undermine peacemaking and justice.

John Buchanan  jtwg@bellsouth.net (Ph: 305.535.9606) , who broke the story on Bush/Nazi connection and is running for Pres. is coming to NH and desperately needs support monetarily. His whole campaign is based on breaking 9/11 wide open. He is running as a Rep. in order to challenge Bush and has scheduled forums and debates in NH for the next 3 weeks. His democratic and Hollywood support has been pulled and he needs money for transportation and lodging. Democrat and Hollywood Zionists are part of the problem-they are all in bed with the establishment. You want radical? You want results? You want to stir up some sh*t? Give John a call or email and find out what he is trying to do to reclaim our rights and our country. Ask to see his 9/11 Document!!!!! Don't support the D or R One-World-Order Establishment. Call John and help today, please!

I just came back to this sorry excuse for a country a few days ago, and I'm glad to be heading to Portland, one of those rare little bastions where many live who don't subscribe to the demented American anxiety based culture of paranoia and personal acquisition. It's true what you say, and I honor all of you there who live well and fight the good fight.
