Project Censored: The news that didn’t make the news . . .
Project Censored is a media research group out of Sonoma State University which tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters. From these, Project Censored compiles an annual list of 25 news stories of social significance that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country’s major national news media.

From: Thousand Kites
Date: Dec 4, 2007 11:34 AM

Dear Citizen J,

The Thousand Kites Team would like to ask for your support for a special radio project called Calls from Home. Calls from Home is a simple project. We open our recording studio’s toll-free number from 3-11pm on December 11th and record calls from prisoner families and supporters from across the country.

We then broadcast the program on over 120 radio stations across the country and bring hundreds of voices (people singing songs, reading poems, and speaking from the heart) to hundreds of thousands of prisoners. We need your help in spreading the word and making the program as strong as possible. Here is how you can help us.

– Call in to the show on Dec. 11th from 3-11pm eastern time. Call toll free at 888-396-1208 and the Thousand Kites team will be there to take your call. We usually just say “Caller, you’re on the air, who would you like to send a message to tonight?”

– If you want to call a message in right now you can call our answering machine at 877-518-0606.

– Spread the word to other people. Please pass this on and ask other folks to get involved. You can learn more at our website at www.thousandkites.org

– After the show is recorded we put it up for free downloads. Download it and get it played our your local community radio station, play a section at a meeting, get it played at a church, class, or even in a prison and hold a discussion about incarceration in the United States.

Finally, help us spread the word on My Space. Please re-post this to your friends.

Peace,
Thousand Kites Team

To be pedantically Kantian about it, our Hero of The Age (Of Reason) is STILL Sri Thomas Paine, World Citizen Pretend and Shit-Stirrer Excelsior. Paine spent time in multiple prisons thanks to his propensity to speak Truth to Power, championing Democracy and secular egalitarian reform. To know his story is to know the history of the Amero-Anglican Schism known as The Revolutionary War; and thus understand why he languished in that Death Row Castle and Deepest of Holes, the Bastille, while the new Nation he helped create ignored his plight and betrayed his work.

Any thing else i have for allzy’all at this point would be distressing and depressing and generally de-progressing.

So here’s some funny guys.

Watching the Skys, Nets

Let’s not add to the rolling snowball of self-perpetuated insanity that has most recently gathered a hefty layer from The Decider’s proclaimations of sanction ag’in Shi’ite Persia.

Let’s instead look at what, perhaps, They™ would use such sabre-rattling clamor to obfuscate. Reports of true Kafkaesquisity in the ever-growing beurokrautik
double-blind farce of the WatchList, which a SlashDot post posits is most probably fueled by datamining. With recent NSA and telecom collusion coming into fine focus, one might argue that this is not so much a lame-duck Presidency as an infant totalitarian dictatorship we here in the US of A have allowed to bloom.

Not this Candidate.

Personally, i’ve always thought that the NSA had best be wiretapping and the FBI watchlisting and the CIA renditioning and such. I just would have thought these agencies more targetted and adroit at thier game, like they were during the CoIntelPro days. These days their nets are too big, too broad and ill-suited to the tasks. They aren’t going to catch any fishies like this, all they’re going to do is piss good people off. Or scare them.

This doesn’t make it any more palattable. It just makes us a bigger target, which we didn’t need help with. We’ve been, as the Latin Americans who survived our decades of death squads and dictators say, “pinche hue Gringos.” What’s the gain in this game Cheney and Company are running?

Follow the money. The “left” press is almost there; watch them pull back from it like a slug from salt. It’s right under your noses when you sniff at Fox news. It’s why we fight in Afganistan, Iraq, and every other Eastern Hemisphere theatre, it’s why you were so confused about the voracity with which the shut-down of Lyndon LaRouche was effected.

If you say “oil” i swear to Maa i’ll fucking reach through the tubes and smack your dumb asses. I done tol’ allz’y’all prior that the USA is not going to get oil from Iraq. That much is obvious, or should be, to anyone with access to the internet who cares enough to look into who owns the damn pipelines. However, follow those pipelines and they’ll lead you home.

If you care.

If not, look up. There’s a new star in the North Eastern skies.

Ahmadinejad ‘n’ US: An Exhalation

They say Iran, again. Rattle, rattle.

Shi’ite Persian Props
code:

Rev. Dr. Ahmadinejad is an obnoxiously hard to defend Executive Branche-Man, so this past week i must admit of a certain knee-jerk urge to give props of some sort to the public face of my beloved (pre’hap betrothed, anon) Shi’ia Persia.

See? He’s cool with Jews.

Next is a nice little rip from the UN webcast.

Whatever. I don’t know if that’s what he said. Rev Stuttery McRamblesome there is perfectly in keeping with a contemporary speaker. This ain’t the Gilded Age. Dubya’s verbal tragedies are encoded at DARPA and filtered through Cheney before he mangles them into “speaches”; Ahmadinejad has to decode whatever the Khomeniacracy flips him to compliment his sportswear ouvre.

My biggest problem with Iran is the number of journalists that country murders.

One would have though that mentionable in the news. You know, where journalists gather to talk.

W/e. moving on.

Hard Knock Life

There’s a saying amongst the Vedicly-inclined that it’s hard to keep it, shall we say, real when one is permuttated in Kali Yuga. Too much decadence, the story goes. The cycle of four ages is full of Maya at that point, making the last age one in which simple acts of selflessness garner more Dharmic Credit Points than in others, comensurate to the difference in overall general turdishness the rest of the biosphere would be exhibiting. Thusly, the Buddha-emulation clique (a subset of the Vedicly-inclined demographic) often remark that Enlightenment™ is easier to attain during Kali Yuga, on a sliding scale that approaches 0 as T(ime) approaches End.

If D’J33pZ(0rX) swings past this entry, maybe she’ll be kind enough to comment and tell the stry of how she reintroduced me to G0D and Grotus via explicating the principle of Kali Yuga to yours truly whilst dodging SoDo traffic to thier hit Top 40 cut from thier seminal disk, Slow Motion Apocalypse.

Grotus – Kali Yuga

It really doesn’t seem reasonable that this particular global bloom of Alpha sapiens will maintain a tenable possitive growth pattern with regards to that species’ growing personal and collective institutional resource requirments and the biosphere’s current rate of resource depletion. However, h. sapiens has been virulently responsive to extreme environmental shifts in the past, showing a stubborn resiliency that could mean aeons of additional torment for all terrans (and possible extraterrestrius effects).

Will there be trade unionism in the Off World Colonies™?


Fuck trade unionism and the little bossman it rode in on. One Big Union.

Found my old pledgecard whilst digging to the bottom of the bivouac here at Last Daze InterBai HQ.

This is what i wanted to show y’all.


Discuss amongst yourselves.

Society needs to be social. The means of production ARE common community assets, and as such communal use/access guarantee assurance is the primary job of any oversight institutions that proport to be acting in the civic interest.


X5 of Arabia, Agent of Change.

There’s a good FCC/streetball tie-in somewhere. For those readers who Fear The Linkz, the above pictured Saudi tagger X5 is lobbying the wet-gherkins of the Haus o’ Saud government to fund some neighborhood playareae, which really isn’t too much to ask. One shouldn’t have to ask one’s master for the occassional bone; decorum dictates the regular flick of gristle from the head table towards the shadows skulking the floor at the edge of the candlelight.

From the article:

(the newly appointed official in charge of Jiddah’s beautification, Jiddeh city official Mohamed Jamal) Abo-Umara, 45, said young men like Alwani should not be held accountable until officials are sure they’ve done right by local youth.

“What have we done for young people? Have we asked them what they need or want?” said Abo-Umara, wearing a flowing white head scarf and long robe. “Until I talk to them and find out why they are scribbling all over Jiddah and do my part in offering them the services we’re supposed to provide, then I can’t punish or criticize them.”

Look.

It comes to this. Always.

It’s all us. The future can be one long-ass dreary unending clusterthroating of compounding institutional usurption of our common resources or we can grow up, stop putting fucking fences around our increasingly drab walls, claiming every toy in the percievable world our personal private slave-object and learn to share like civilised toddlers. Looking up to “authority” percieved resident in the wealthy elite who really do run things for the edification of global business ventures with whom they have more than casual invested interests in is the number one crippling cognitive prion that the governed can cure themselves of.

Ask your Doktor if shedding your need for a shepherd is right for you.

He’ll say “Yes.”
