The Unconscious Country
what can one expect from those who rise out of the Tomb? How appropriate that the Skull and Bones sanctuary is called the Tomb. There in its innards reside an exclusive population of maggots that coil about each other in an ugly love ritual of huddling and clinging while feeding on others' deprivation, releasing from time to time one of its membership to rise to the pinnacles of power the better to control the masses and ensure the continuation of their resplendent Tomb in that citadel of idyllic learning walled off from the slums of Hartford.

I would that our Senators represent the people, the people corralled by the military recruiters who place 70% of their recruiting offices in poverty neighborhoods where our minorities reside; I would that they represent the average wage earner who is strapped each month to a pole of bills too great to pay forcing him and her into greater and greater debt day after day; I would that they represent the laborer who receives from our corporations the pittance of a wage that keeps them floundering below the poverty line . . .

Federal Commission NixesTalk Of Paper-Only Elections; Stacks Panels w/ Pro-E-voters
At least one state, Missouri, will consider legislation (House Bill 1744) that effectively bans the use of all voting machines, including ballot scanners. --- California's Secretary of State Kevin Shelley has decertified thousands of Diebold touchscreen machines and has called for a criminal and civil investigation of the company. --- And no one spoke in favor of paper-only elections. That was no accident. --- During a break in the testimony I hustled up to the front of the room to ask Chairman Soaries if there was going to be any testimony that would question the legal right or technical wisdom of allowing machines to be involved in the voting process. Soaries seemed taken aback by the question. He responded that it was not the roll of the Commission to address that issue. The Commission, he said, was there to "assist" election officials and voting machine manufacturers... --- testimony Dr. Avi Rubin debunked the myth that there's any security or integrity to paperless voting technology. --- However...the same old lies were told by the vendors, election officials, and organizations like the League of Women Voters. --- Apparently, all the EAC wants to compile is a list of voting machine technologies from which election officials may chose. It's like picking rotten apples out of the same barrel. --- McCormack pointed out that public concerns raised about touchscreens are the same concerns raised in the past about lever machines and ballot scanners. She clearly wanted to give the impression that U.S. elections were secure using those technologies. However, there are numerous examples of vote fraud and irregularities down through the decades with these machines [see link] --- ...it appears that the public is finally beginning to question America's 100-year bad habit of using voting machines.

The answer is that the Bush Administration ALL knew about the torture at and murder least a year and a half ago, if not right from the start. They Knew about it, and probably ordered it. Even simply allowing it to continue, when they could put a stop to it, is legally a crime. But it is amazing that the Administration, the Congress, the military, and virtually every media source is saying that this is the first they've ever heard about it.

Two Israelis Arrested After High-Speed Chase In Ryder Truck, Vial Of "Substance" Thrown
ERWIN, Tenn. -- Shmuel Dahan and Almaliach Naor, both from Israel, were being held without bond Sunday afternoon at the Unicoi County Jail. The truck, rented from a Ryder office in Mars Hills, N.C., was being held in the county garage pending an FBI investigation, officials said.

Dahan is charged with reckless driving, littering, false identification and evading arrest, while Naor faces charges of false identification and evading arrest, an officer with the Unicoi County Sheriff's Department who would not give his name said Sunday.

Sheriff Kent Harris said he saw the men throw something from the truck while they were being pursued. Officers scouring the area later found a vial containing an unknown substance along the roadway, he said.

An investigation by the FBI is ongoing and more charges are possible, he said. A woman who answered the phone at the FBI's Knoxville office said there was no one available to answer questions about the arrest.

Cheney: "Get Off Rumsfeld's Case"
bosom buddies, 1975 "Don Rumsfeld is the best secretary of defense the United States has ever had," Cheney said in a statement from his office late on Saturday.

Cheney spokesman Kevin Kellems, a former aide to Rumsfeld, said the American public supports the defense secretary. Rumsfeld's feisty demeanor in Pentagon press briefings since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks has gained him a high public profile.

"Americans want to keep Rumsfeld on the job. Why? Because the guy in the glasses they see on TV is the guy who is protecting them by going after the terrorists. That's who he is to the average American. That's the place he's earned since 9/11," Kellems said.

Update on Yesterday's Fee-Demo Hearing
The big news from this hearing is that Congressman Udall let the cat out of the bag when he said that the President will soon be introducing a fee-demo
bill of his own. It can almost go without saying, that President Bush's yet-to-be-seen legislation will reflect the American Recreation Coalition's current preferred vision for a National Recreation Fee Program. The failure of today's recreation-industry fee-supporters to support Regula's legislation strongly suggests that they are reserving their support for an even harsher piece of legislation that more-explicitly encourages the commercialization and privatization of recreational opportunities on
America's public lands.
