jam bites & video coming..

Sorry I've been taking a while with the bites, lads. I've been ripping my infrastructure apart for the last month and have gotten it somewhat stabilized. First should be the 5/24 jam and then the 6/23 jam.

Slowly the veil is lifted...

Reprinted from today UPI- A former Bush team member during his first administration is now voicing serious doubts about the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11. Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush's first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is "bogus" and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7. Reynolds, who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas and is now professor emeritus at Texas A&M University said, "If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an 'inside job' and a government attack on America would be compelling." Reynolds commented from his Texas A&M office, "It is hard to exaggerate the importance of a scientific debate over the cause of the collapse of the twin towers and building 7. If the official wisdom on the collapses is wrong, as I believe it is, then policy based on such erroneous engineering analysis is not likely to be correct either. The government's collapse theory is highly vulnerable on its own terms. Only professional demolition appears to account for the full range of facts associated with the collapse of the three buildings."

Save NPR and PBS

Subject: This time, it's for real: Save NPR and PBS


You know that email petition that keeps circulating about how Congress is slashing funding for NPR and PBS? Well, now it's actually true. (Really. Check the footnotes if you don't believe me.)

Sign the petition telling Congress to save NPR and PBS:

A House panel has voted to eliminate all funding for NPR and PBS, starting with "Sesame Street," "Reading Rainbow," and other commercial-free children's shows. If approved, this would be the most severe cut in the history of public broadcasting, threatening to pull the plug on Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch.

The cuts would slash 25% of the federal funding this year—$100 million—and end funding altogether within two years. The loss could kill beloved children's shows like "Clifford the Big Red Dog," "Arthur," and "Postcards from Buster." Rural stations and those serving low-income communities might not survive. Other stations would have to increase corporate sponsorships.

If we can reach 250,000 signatures by the end of the week, we'll put Congress on notice.


P.S. Read the Washington Post report on the threat to NPR and PBS at:

John Conyers response to the Downing Street Minutes

A friend sent this to me. I'm not so sure I'm as far left as some of the contributors to this blog. I do pause to think about some of the stuff you guys have posted, and I'm sure at least 50% of the conspiracy stuff and bullshit surrounding the WMDs and run up to war is true. I'm not sure that there is a Star Chamber in the administration, I'm more inclined to think these guys are a bunch of empty suits looking to get theirs while the getting is good.

That all being said, here's a letter you can sign that is sponsored by a respected senior member of the House of Representatives that expresses outrage and asks for answers regarding the Downing Street Memo that has gotten surprisingly little press over here in the states.

Pigs in the Country?
