The real meaning of 9/11 is this: Uncle Sam, the bullying crapper on the rest of the world and the American people themselves, got crapped on, and he whines and cries like a baby! And just like bullies everywhere when they get their comeuppance, Uncle Sam shows he can sure dish it out, but he can’t take it!
In New Orleans, in the first ten days of the New Year, nine homicides occurred. These murders have all been linked to drugs. This seems to say that drugs are the prime cause of these tragic killings, but actually it is the legal establishment, by enforcing the War on Drugs, that is primarily responsible for creating an environment that fosters this atrocious crime wave and here’s how.
The historical hallmark of every totalitarian dictatorship is the persecution of political opposition. Mussolini did it in Fascist Italy, Hitler did it in Nazi Germany, and Stalin did it in Communist U.S.S.R. Now we have the record of the Republican right wing, organized crime, and the corporate class united together doing it in our own country.

Dear Mr. Nelson,
I’d like to take a little time and space to analyze one of the most profound statements of “The Declaration of Independence,” written by Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin. They wrote, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Let us look first at the phrase “self evident.” This means anyone of normal intelligence can see and understand this by simple universal observation. A “no-brainer.”
It has come to my attention that (lately) the President, the Vice President and the Secretary of Defense have coined a new buzzword “Islamo-fascism”, and they are drawing parallels and comparisons to the beginning of the Second World War. Indeed there are certain parallels. Hitler invaded and conquered Czechoslovakia and Austria insisting he was liberating them. Then he invaded Poland saying it was a grave threat to German security. And of course he blamed the woes of Germany and the rest of the world on a religion.
The invasion of Iraq has become a tragedy of massive unintended consequences, not only in Iraq, but also in our own country. Even prior to the war’s inception, a proposition was advanced by Cheney, Wolfowitz, Pearle and others of the neo-conservative cabal on a website labeled “The New American Century,” made public in 2000, to invade Iraq. One of the most obvious consequences of the “War on Terror” was that the president’s poll ratings skyrocketed up from lows (that now after four years of war have even deepened).
Ever since the inception of the so-called “War on Drugs” in Richard Nixon’s second term as President, this country has been under the thrall of a dark cloud of fear. This is because more than half of the citizens of our great country have used, tried, experimented with or are now using illegal “controlled” substances. The most commonly used (of these) is marijuana, a non-addictive plant used since the beginning of recorded history for medicinal purposes.
Ever since 11/23/63 something has been bothering me, nagging at me, something that just won’t go away or resolve itself. As I watched (on TV) when Ruby shot down Oswald in the Dallas Police station, I immediately realized that the Presidents Assassination was a Mafioso affair. This was their pattern. Kill someone who won’t cooperate, and set up a patsy to take the rap, and then kill the patsy, thus ending the affair and the possibility of linking the first murder to the real killers and quashing any meaningful investigation.
Bush’s speech at the VFW convention last week advances an upside down theory that withdrawing from Iraq would cause an escalation in sectarian violence comparable to the “killing fields” of Cambodia.
