Needed - Hit Men For The Truth

Needed - Hit Men For The Truth: "I am a retired Army captain. I fought in Vietnam with the 196th Light Infantry Brigade. I walked through the jungle carrying an M-16.
"Some people think that because someone does not support the war, they do not support our troops. That is just not reality. There might be some soldiers that believe protest equals lack of support, but the vast majority that I served with knew that protestors were trying to end the madness.
"Yes, we fought the war, but almost none of us wanted to be there. We stayed there and fought because that's what soldiers do. Thank God that while we were there doing that some brave people back here had the courage to stand up and say that war is wrong.
"Thank God they were brave enough to act on their convictions and stand up to a government that had lied to us. I applaud you! Maybe you could have treated me a little better when I got back, but that's another letter.
" I find incredibly offensive those who have never fought a war, never fired a shot at another human being, never been shot at or hunted, or never had to listen to a good friend scream in agony, sending or supporting the sending of our brave soldiers to war for lies.
"Look at the facts. There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. There were no connections with the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. There were no reasons to go to war. You should be outraged.
"You want to support our troops? Keep them out of war and get rid of those who would put them in harm's way, unless absolutely necessary.
"Maybe we can't leave Iraq immediately because of the mess we created, but we should get rid of those responsible for the current situation.
"God bless our troops. I do not support the war, but I support you."

No To Politics, Yes To Mass Refusal: Too late for 2004 but not to late for 2006

No To Politics, Yes To Mass Refusal: "The U.S. went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq not only for a
route to lay a pipeline to the Caspian Basin or to seize the world's second
largest oil reserves. It went to war to frighten into submission a world of
people who have begun too actively to question and resist the power of capital,
too actively to seek an alternative. It went to war to silence them with its
awesome and brutal power. The wars may have been about oil, but they were also
about social control."

Election Fraud Continues in the US

Election Fraud Continues in the US: "New research compiled by Dr. Dennis Loo with the University of Cal Poly Pomona now shows that extensive manipulation of non-paper-trail voting machines occurred in several states during the 2004 election.
The facts are as follows:
In 2004 Bush far exceeded the 85% of registered Florida Republican votes that he got in 2000, receiving more than 100% of the registered Republican votes in 47 out of 67 Florida counties, 200% of registered Republicans in 15 counties, and over 300% of registered Republicans in 4 counties. Bush managed these remarkable outcomes despite the fact that his share of the crossover votes by registered Democrats in Florida did not increase over 2000, and he lost ground among registered Independents, dropping 15 points. We also know that Bush 'won' Ohio by 51-48%, but statewide results were not matched by the court-supervised hand count of the 147,400 absentee and provisional ballots in which Kerry received 54.46% of the vote. In Cuyahoga County, Ohio the number of recorded votes was more than 93,000 greater than the number of registered voters."

Hunter S. Thompson killed?

Hunter S. Thompson killed?:
"[ NOTE: I have no idea whether Thompson was murdered or not,
but I do think these strange circumstances surrounding his
death should be investigated further. After the Rove
CIA leak,
I can't put anything past the Bush admin. This
clip is pretty entertaining anyway... in true 'Hunteresque' fashion,
he flips out over a phone noise near the beginning
of the interview... classic!]"

An Interview with Joe Bageant

An Interview with Joe Bageant: " have fished for bass
at night in its once beautiful rivers, and I have
played stink finger with its young Southern girls
who wear no panties on August nights by the light
of its many moons. I have grown what can almost be
called old now, with its earth beneath my feet and
its legends in my eyes. And now a bunch of cheap
murderous cocksuckers have hijacked the place that
made me what I am and are busily turning it into
one vast capitalist gulag. Stealing my children's'
dreams... everything I ever experienced and
cared about has become irrelevant. I don't care about
my own experiences disappearing into the void so
much as I care about the blackness now descending.
I am here right now to tell you that America is a
rogue nation and the greatest threat afoot to civilization.
That doesn't mean that every American is Hitler and
it doesn't mean that there is no hope. But we gotta
cop to what is going on. When a nation refuses to
acknowledge the need for world tribunals for ethnic
cleansing and refutes the Kyoto agreements, and murders
tens of thousands to keep its stock market afloat,
then that nation must be called malignant upon this

Capitol Hill Blue: Bush is Not an American

Capitol Hill Blue: Bush is Not an American: "All this suggests to me that the President of the United States owes a lot more to his Saudi money boys than he does to the country he has sworn to serve. It tells me the President of the United States is a traitor.
Traitors should not be President. They should be arrested, tried and, upon conviction, punished for their crimes against their country.
And, as far as I'm concerned, anyone who continues to support this traitor to America is equally guilty of treason.
Don't like those characterizations? Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn if it pisses you off because I do give a damn about my country. It's just too fucking bad that you don't."

thoughtpolicy apparel - Made in China: "Made in China
Where did all the jobs go? What happened to America's once-proud manufacturing base? Who is responsible for the cheap consumer goods flooding the market, and why are they so cheap? The answer: Corporate America can utlilize incredibly cheap labor and avoid most environmental restrictions by moving their operations to that 'friendly giant' in the Far East. Understand the dichotomy: consumer goods made by Third World slaves then shipped to the First World so consumers can save a couple of bucks on some crap we don't need, while the world suffers our material greed. Chew on that."

Cool t-shirts and biting political commentary, what more could you ask for?
