I just have a question from you Crawford folks: what's the story on "Joe Bob Hinton of Crawford" being appointed by Rick Perry to the Texas School Board today? (see www.mysanantonio.com)

My less charitable side presumes that he is a religious wing nut of the typical neo-con stripe we have come to expect from the Republican Crime Machine.

Please tell me where I can find out more about Brother Joe Bob; Google doesn't seem to have much.

I have always loved your paper since I first discovered it in 2001. It was quite a bit different format then. Keep up the fight for truth!

Warmest regards,

P.C. Higgins
Moulton, Texas

Nuclear War against Iran
- by Michel Chossudovsky - 2006-01-03
". . The launching of an outright war using nuclear warheads against Iran is now in the final planning stages. Coalition partners, which include the US, Israel and Turkey are in "an advanced stage of readiness".
www.globalresearch.ca
Mr. Chossudovsky's email is crgeditor@yahoo.com

F. William Engdahl, www.engdahl.oilgeopolitics.net

Also, ". . Byron W. King, is a practicing attorney in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, snip ~ After graduating from Harvard University more years ago than he cares to discuss, Byron worked as a geologist in the exploration and production division of a major international oil company. He has followed developments in the oil and gas industry for almost three decades."

Leon, this is probably the most important thing for every American citizen to know:

http://brillig.com/debt_clock/

". . The Outstanding Public Debt as of 07 Feb 2006 at 04:06:49 PM GMT is: $8,211,246,550,853.87

The estimated population of the United States is 298,461,684
so each citizen's share of this debt is $27,511.90.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of $2.14 billion per day since September 30, 2005!

Concerned? Then tell Congress and the White House!"

Our quality of life will continue to diminish because China holds more than 45% of our debt and all other countries are detaching from our US dollar, because of our debt and the debt is due to financing a "total spectrum dominant" plan of the Bush Cabal that has now begun to fail and we in the US are the ones who shall "pay the piper."

Today is the 8th of February, my son's birthday. I would like to spend the day with him, but he is in Afghanistan in this sorry excuse for a military action.

As of today, the United States has lost 18 of its sons this month ALONE. How many more? How many more mothers are going to be getting the news that their child is dead? How many more Iraqis are going to die?

I live in a red state and I am heartsick over the lack of intelligent design going on here with the number of Bush Cheney stickers still on the back of people's cars. Bush and Cheney are robbing this country and their countrymen blind and like sheep they all go along. Well not me.

I think that everyone that voted this moron into office (or was this another stolen election?) need to either enlist or have their children enlist...

Despite the lies and bullshit coming out of DC, the US is not planning on leaving Iraq anytime soon or within the next year... Halliburton is buidling 14 PERMANENT bases over there and we are closing bases here... doesn't that make a WHOLE LOTTA sense?

Randi Rhodes (Air America Radio):
- she is the best talk show host out there. some people call her the 'anti-rush'. She brings intelligence and humour to her show every day.

Paul Hackett (hackettforohio.com):
Running for the Senate from Ohio. Iraq war VET (one of 56 running for office this year). He is well spoken, clear-headed, and has a unique perspective on what our soldiers are going through over there.

Rich Dickerson (www.wzzr.com):
This is the guy that caused that other guy to start the KISS Army. Dickerson wouldn't play any music from this new band, KISS, on his radio staion in Indiana, so some kid (I think his name was Starkey) started the KISS Army to prove that people wanted to hear the new band KISS.

First: Molly Ivins, who knows more about Texas/Bush family politics than the Bush family. Second: Ann Richards, who was ambushed by the Rove machine. Third: how about interviewing the liquor supplier for the Crawford ranch? How dry is our president (and, since last Saturday's shooting, how dry is the Vice-president who is on so many meds, many of which probably shouldn't be mixed with liquor?

I would like to see the Iconoclast interview George Carlin, Bill Maher, Dennis Miller, and that comedian who did the gig about "I can't stop my foot". (Sorry, I'm blanking out on his name). In fact, I would like to do those interviews myself. Leon, can you make this happen? Oh, oops, that's four. I'm a writer, not a mathmetician.

#1 David VanOs. He is the most unique and riveting speaker I have heard in a long time. He tells it like it is and reminds me of Al Sharpton and Jim Hightower rolled together. As a NY transplant, I sure hope he gets elected. Anyone whose motto is "fight'em till hell freezes over, then fight'em on the ice" gets my vote.

#2 Molly Ivins. Her battles with cancer while being so positive are inspiring.

#3 MaryBeth Harrell who is running against John Carter. Her husband is retired military and she has 2 kids serving in Iraq.

For starters, Keith Rupert Murdoch, the majordomo behind Faux News Channel, the Faux networks and an international media empire based in Australia, Great Britain and the United States.

As for the "why and wherefore," perhaps because we need to know why "the Dirty Digger" (as he's somewhat sarcastically nicknamed) feels it best to pander to the crudest, the most pathetic, even the most banal, of prejudices and stereotypes insofar as his choices of what passes for "news" and "entertainment." That, and why he prefers targeting especially the Lower Classes with what Orwellian Newspeak calls "prolefeed"--the willful, deliberate dissemiation of false, inaccurate or otherwise misleading news and information to Those Who Should Know Better.

For another, may I recommend Mark Hyman of the so-called "Sinclair Broadcasting Group" behind the evisceration of "local" TV news, in satellite-fed form, known as "NewsCentral" (for which Hyman delivers a rather obnoxiously biased brand of commentary, "The Point" by name and stylee).

Why: Because we need to know why Mr. Hyman thinks the hoi polloi should only be entrusted to a hyperconservative agenda for the "winning of hearts and minds" purposes he seeks to use on "The Point."

My final choice, Rev. Donald Wildmon of the so-called "American Family Association."

Why: Out of love for Truth insofar as to why he deems it best to invoke His Name, howbeit for blasphemous purpose, to justify resorting to anti-Semitic canards and patsies vis-a-vis his campaigns to scare the FreeVee networks to the "Christian agenda." That, and asking whether the "American Family Association" actually, and sincerely, represents the interest of American families, let alone such being a "feel-good" bromide.

Subject: Bush's pupil and devotee arrested for petty theft


Original Story by By Michael A. Fletcher and Joshua Partlow Washington Post Staff Writers Sunday, March 12, 2006; Page A07
Claude Allen, Bush's former top domestic policy adviser & deeply-religious family-man, is accused of swindling Hecht's and Target stores out of more than $5,000 in a phony refund scheme.

But when Ugly-News Service reporters asked the president about his former pupil's arrest he replied: I was shocked, and deeply disappointed..etc, etc etc.. (but confidential, inside-the white-house sources told reporters that although true, Bush was shocked for the simple fact the dummy got caught, and he was dissappointed because the proceeds from the theft were to be funneled through his church to help rig the elction of family-men (like him & Allen) to public office.

In the interest of completely fair and balanced reporting, they also asked Toivo (psuedo-journalist and former FOX anchor who was fired for being too objective) what he thought about the whole thing & he replied: In their lust for money and power, these ultra-religious perverts first stole our stocks & investments, then our electronic votes & the presidency, then our federal purse, then our confidence-for-the-future, then our civil liberties, and now they've moved onto our rebate slips.

He also warned that to protect themselves from future Right-Wing theft, Americans should be cautiously monitoring trends in the "futures markets in rubber-hose inventories," because it won't be long before they takeup "siphoning our gas."

Would like to see an interview with Samantha Power, author of "A PROBLEM FROM HELL, America and the Age of Genocide."
What she knows about our government's historic actions, and particularly their inactions, regarding Genocide committed around the world - Rwanda, Cambodia, the Kurds, etc. will chill folks to the bone and hopefully motivate them to take meaningful action.
Her background info on how the U.S. under Reagan and Bush, Sr. 'made' Saddam the man he is today by continuing to support and fund him (to the tune of $500 million a year) even as they knew beyond any doubt that he was slaughtering over 100,000 Kurdish men woman and children, using poison gas and bullets on them before dumping them in thousands of mass graves - is worth the price of the book.
(The Anniversary / Rememberance of the Armenian Genocide is April 26th this year with lots going in DC. If last year was any indication it will be marked by much government-official grand-standing and speeches and little else from those in office in Washington.)

1) John Ralston-Saul - Canadian thinker who argues that careless worship of reason has led to a world ruled "Harvard Business School style" systematization, and it is ruining everything.

2) Anousheh Ansari - Iranian-American astronaut, because she speaks like a yogi.

3) David Kilgour - Former Canadian foreign minister, because he has researched the accusations of Chinese Falun Gong organ harvesting more than anyone, and he argues forcefully that we already have enough evidence to assume the accusations are correct.
