Wednesday, November 30, 2005Chris Welch for State Rep
One of my relatives is running for Candidacy for the 7th District IL Representative. This is going to be an interesting race, as his opponent is known for her dirty campaign tricks. It's well known that some animosity exists between the candidates. A fundraiser is being held on December 14, 2005. All those in the Chicago area should think about coming.

Michele Malkin should thank the Civil Rights Movement for making it possible for a fascist like her to make it in the US...
Monday, November 28, 2005Gulf Coast slaves
Halliburton and its subcontractors hired hundreds of undocumented Latino workers to clean up after Katrina -- only to mistreat them and throw them out without pay. I guess this is the American Corporate way, steal from the poor and give to the rich.Technorati Tags: Gulf Coast slaves, Davis-Bacon Act, Halliburton, slave labor, steal from the poor and give to the rich...
Monday, November 21, 2005Believers Concept of God Should Change
Although I'm not a believer in any established religion, I totally agree with the statements below (with two minor changes).
Friday, November 18, 2005Evolution is a religion? I didn't know!
Recently James Manning, Rebecca, and a few other notable bloggers have been talking about ID. Although I realized early on that the discussion wasn’t going anywhere since it was clear that everyone was only interested in getting their point across without fully taking into account anybody else’s point. Not to get into too many details because the links are listed below for anyone who is interested in the discussion.
When it comes to Republican and moderates, I find that their views are not always based on reality, at least not my reality. Anyway, although James Manning is a Democrat apparently the discussions from the moderates interest him immensely. So, while visiting his site, I made an interesting, but disturbing discovery about some proponents of ID.
Had I known this going into the debate, I would have avoided it like a plague. If anyone is interested in the discussions - James Manning talks about ID here, here, here and here. The conversation originated on Rebecca's blog because of the latest incidence in the Kansas school system. You can read all about it here, here, and here.
I walked away thinking I was so naïve not to know there were people who believed this. Surely, I thought, every adult in America should know the difference between religion and science. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

What if everything you thought you knew about a subject was based on a lie?
Sunday, November 13, 2005Secret Prisons
"The CIA is holding an unknown number of prisoners in secret detention centers abroad. In violation of the Geneva Conventions, it has refused to register those detainees with the International Red Cross or to allow visits by its inspectors. Its prisoners have 'disappeared,' like the victims of some dictatorships." -- The Washington Post.
Why did we bother to beat the Soviet Union if we were just going to become it? Shame. Shame. Shame. Molly Ivins
To me, Octavia Butler is a Godess. She is by far one of the best Sci-Fi writers who ever lived.
The Washington Post has called Octavia Butler “one of the finest voices in fiction period. A master storyteller who casts an unflinching eye on racism, sexism, poverty and ignorance and lets the reader see the terror and beauty of human nature.” Octavia has described herself as an outsider, and "a pessimist, a feminist always, a Black, a quiet egoist, a former Baptist, and an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive."

Thursday, November 10, 2005More Ohio Irregularities...
I'm beginning to think voting is an exercise in futility for Americans.
Four statewide referenda aimed at reforming Ohio's electoral process have been defeated in a manner that is (again) totally inconsistent with polling data, One statewide referendum, aimed at handing the corrupt Taft Administration a $2 billion windfall, has allegedly passed, again in a manner totally inconsistent with polling data, or even a rudimentary assessment of Ohio politics.
Tuesday, November 01, 2005Powerful Government Accountability Office report confirms key 2004 stolen election findings
As a legal noose appears to be tightening around the Bush/Cheney/Rove inner circle, a shocking government report (GAO) now confirms that electronic voting machines as deployed in 2004 were in fact perfectly engineered to allow a very small number of partisans with minimal computer skills and equipment to shift enough votes to put George W. Bush back in the White House.
Can you really be shocked by the GAO report when the investigation into the 2000 Presidential election showed that Bush/Cheney didn’t win the first time around? I guess this demonstrates in America that your vote isn't worth the ballot it is cast on.
Since the past two elections were stolen, everything that Bush & Cheney have done should be reversed. However, I'm sure the damage is so grave, it will take a long time for things to even out.
