One-Third of Americans believe WMDs Found in Iraq--Half believe Iraqis did 9.11
A third of the American public believes U.S. forces found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, according to a recent poll, and 22 percent said Iraq actually used chemical or biological weapons.

But no such weapons have been found, nor is there evidence they were used recently in Iraq.

Before the war, half of those polled in a survey said Iraqis were among the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001. But [supposedly] most of them were from Saudi Arabia. None were Iraqis.

Bursting Bubbles
In 2000, President Clinton could legitimately boast of the "best economy in 30 years." Unemployment was low, wages were rising at all income levels, and the poverty rate was headed downward at a rapid pace. But after President Bush took office in 2001, the economy fell into recession, shedding jobs and causing real wage growth to slow and eventually stop altogether.

A convenient story explains this sharp economic reversal. According to the script, Clinton eliminated the deficit through progressive tax increases and spending restraint. This deficit reduction lowered interest rates and spurred an investment boom, which was the basis for the extraordinary growth of the late '90s. Then Bush came into office and quickly squandered the surplus with his tax cuts to the rich and military build-up. As a result, the deficit skyrocketed and the economy tanked.

It's a good story, but the reality is quite different. The Clinton boom was built on three unsustainable bubbles. One of them, the stock bubble, has already burst. The other two bubbles—the dollar bubble and the housing bubble—are still with us. The dollar bubble is starting to deflate, and the housing bubble is perhaps just now reaching its peak. These bubbles created the basis for the 2001 recession and the economy's continuing period of stagnation.

Bill Moyers - A Call to Arms 6/12/03
This is a rather long, but very important piece on how the U.S. screwed itself overtime. There is a great many historical facts here, I have not heard most. It all makes sense now. Moyers is telling us that we are in more trouble than ever before, and he tells us why. He also describes how the Republican party took over and gives us some hints about how we can dig ourselves out of this pile of dung that our society lives in. NO WAR, BUT A CLASS WAR.

Honey, I Shrunk The Clean Water Act
More than half the nation's waters -- ranging from neighborhood creeks and fishing holes to entire drinking water supplies -- could lose federal protection if either of two current attacks on the Clean Water Act is successful.

At least 60 percent of our nation's streams and 20 percent of our wetlands would lose federal protection under the Bush administration proposal. Polluters could then dump wastes into these waterways without a permit, without notifying the public, and without fear of reprisals. Unregulated contamination of these waters from sewage, oil, hazardous chemicals and other pollutants would be disastrous for our drinking water supplies, wildlife habitat, and flood control.

A Recent poll confirms what many people around this planet already suspected-- the Patriotic Sheeple of the USA are living in an American Matrix of their own creation. Steven Kull, director of PIPA, comments: "For some Americans, their desire to support the war may be leading them to screen out information that weapons of mass destruction have not been found. Given the intensive news coverage and high levels of public attention to the topic, this level of misinformation suggests that some Americans may be avoiding having an experience of cognitive dissonance."
