17-03-2004 05:23Democracy is only for the tyrants. For the normal person it has been consistently tormenting him and plundering his happiness. The democracy in Russia that started with a green bud perished before its bloom.
17-03-2004 04:20Aznar's Popular Party (being the haven of the Franco fascists just as the Christian Democrats in Germany became the haven of Nazis after World War Two) more than likely contracted the men arrested through their handlers (the Bush regime) to plant the bombs that went off Thursday in Spain in an attempt to shift a weakening or possible loss for the Popular Party in the Spanish parliament to a resounding victory for the Popular Party by blaming the attacks on the militant Basque separatists, the ETA.

16-03-2004 22:11Interesting reference article from the Evening Standard because it has direct evidence of harm to humans from GM crops. (Though I don't think this is the first instance as the article claims.)
16-03-2004 22:03In the March 10 Bill Handel show on KFI AM 640, a pretend "Muslim" allegedly reading from the new Iraqi constitution refers to "hairy Iraqi women," "lovely Japanese schoolgirls," the "infidel custom of bathing on a regular basis," and "civil unions" between Iraqis and "loving camels and goats."
16-03-2004 21:47The Spanish people have shown the way - they have refused to be cowed by terrorism either into inert nationalist fear or into supporting their corrupt, lying government. Let us follow...

16-03-2004 17:37The White Nationalist Party scumbags are organising to meet at Exeter Railway Station on March 27th, meeting on Platform 1. From there they intend to go onto council estates to peddle their racist filth in the hope of recruiting new members.
16-03-2004 17:05The national survey of Iraq conducted this February by Oxford Research International hit the news on the 16th of March. The poll of well over 2000 Iraqis was sponsored by the BBC in the UK, ABC in the US, ARD of Germany and the NHK in Japan. A news bulletin on the BBC's Radio 1 claimed that "most Iraqi's think their lives are better than before the war a year ago" according to the poll. In the US, the New York Times also covered the story, but gave it less prominence (1). They write that the poll finds "an upbeat sense among most that their lives were better than before the war" although "other questions about the invasion provoked more negative reactions". The BBC news website headlined with the story (2), musing that the poll will "make good reading for US President George W Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair". This is no doubt true when viewed through the ideological bias of the New York Times and the BBC. A cursory look beyond their 'liberal objectivity' at the actual facts of the survey suggests very different conclusions.
