  • March 20 Global Day of Action


  • A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.---Mao Zedong

    According to MSNBC..feed from Madrid indicates an explosive called GOMA 2-ECO was responsible for the horrific blast on the commuter trains. Despite the best efforts of the US State Dept and the admirably loyal and misquided Spanish Govt...it is not very likely that Al-Aqaeda NOR the Basques were responsible. In fact...I think we need to do some quick look up on the Pentagon's Recent Shipments of GOMA 2-ECO to the South of France? UEE? FCC BEC!

  • Baghdad Burning

    A year later and our electricity is intermittent, at best, there constantly seems to be a fuel shortage and the streets aren't safe.

  • We've learned that terrorism isn't actually the act of creating terror. It isn't the act of killing innocent people and frightening others… no, you see, that's called a 'liberation'. It doesn't matter what you burn or who you kill- if you wear khaki, ride a tank or Apache or fighter plane and drop missiles and bombs, then you're not a terrorist- you're a liberator

    U.S. Police State 2004 

    Homeland Security Story-thi3rdeye Exclusive!

    A U.S. Citizen's meeting with the Harris County Sheriff in Jersey Village, TX just outside of Houston.

    They found a suitcase of mine that had fallen out of the back of my Suzuki Samurai. I had 200 rounds of 38 ammo, and about 150 rounds of 12 gauge ammo. I was in AZ target practicing previous to arriving TX. Anyway, they found a copy of MAO ZE TUNG'S MANIFESTO OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S LIBERATION ARMY and that, combined with ammo, they felt was a terrorist threat.

    They sent a police car to former address in Seattle (I had a newspaper clipping about the police shooting a black man in Seattle; the Harris County Sheriff thought I was the accomplice!) and my luggage tag had a Seattle address. The Deputy, named Inquest, worked over time on this case. He finally called the Burning Man office in Gerlach NV (I have BM business cards; just quit that job.) They got a message to me. I called and had a wait until the next day to get the bags back.

    They told me that the term "RADICAL SELF EXPRESSION" and "SELF RELIANCE" on the BM website set off warning signs. I had to sign for papers detailing the items they found. They gave me back my ammo and flattened camera equipment. The Mao pamphlet and news paper clipping were kept separated from my stuff and returned as well.

    I called the Jersey Village Police and 3 sheriff departments after my bags were missing. Deputy Inquest told me that he called all the departments I called and they had no reports of lost luggage, acting as if I were lying.

    He further added that the FBI will be watching me and may be contacting me in the future. A lieutenant from FBI joint task force on ANTI-Terrorism named John something or other came in and personally inspected my bags, but declined to interview me. I suspect they are not as afraid of a Chinese Communist invasion as the older Harris County Sheriff Deputies are . . .

    All in all it wasn't that bad, just the fact the police do not Relay messages and they made me wait a day to get my stuff back. That, and the menace that I will be "under surveillance." -CS
