Prescript: I'm looking for someone to go 50/50 with me and move to either Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, or Mexico where we can make a very low income go much further with a lower cost, and higher standard, of living (than living in the States on such a low income). This includes an only income of Social Security Disability (SSDI) and/or Retirement benefits. The Social Security Administration most definitely DOES allow SSDI and/or Retirement benefits, but not Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, to be sent to recipients in most other countries! There are many books about moving and living abroad available at the public library and/or at Amazon.com . Naturally, I realize we would probably have to spend some time getting to know eachother, and finding out if we're compatible, before moving abroad together. We could even have our own separate "spaces" by choosing to rent or purchase a house or apartment with separate quarters, and still save considerable money in monthly costs compared to living in the States on the same income. If you might be interested, want to ask me some questions, and/or want to discuss it, please e-mail me at the address below.

Most "Americans" and their "democracy" are like their coffee, watered down and insipid. Most Americans don't even understand True Democracy. They don't want to talk about True Democracy; and many if not most of them hate people who stand up for civil rights. They have been indoctrinated and conditioned to think and feel this way by the oligarchy and the cowed majority who parrot the ignorant words of "everyone". Most Americans don't think for themselves. They blindly think the majority can't be wrong; and they act like, if they ignore the abominable, corporate-run, murderous foreign policy(ies) of their government, and the other corrupt, political problems of the so-called "greatest democracy on Earth", everything is okay with "their world". After all, they have their three hot meals a day, a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs, a comfortable place to sleep, and, if they're "lucky", a job.
I haven't written anything new on, around or immediately after the one-year "anniversary" of 9-11-2001 because, first, I didn't want to spout the typical platitudes of the falsely patriotic, the blind followers of the blind; second, I was waiting, like some if not many people, for something else to happen, for another just as, or almost as, serious event as what transpired on 9-11-01; which, like most of those who are not burying their heads in the sand like the rest of the ostriches, have no doubt is going to happen sometime soon; and three, because I felt it would be a waste of time to again attempt to wake people up who don't want to be awakened. So I "put it off" and waited to be "inspired" as I am now, and really had something truly beneficial to say; and here I am again speaking The Truth to a largely "empty auditorium", wondering why I bother to keep trying to reach those who don't even know they need to be reached, and don't want to be.
Duty. That is why I keep trying. Because, if I don't, I'm just another of the sheep or cattle, who ignorantly go along with their evil government, going right over the edge of the cliff, falling into the bottomless pit of apathy, complacency and "silent" complicity. How many times have I and many others' spoken the truth that we are all complicit and just as responsible as if we directly conspired in the evils, if we remain largely silent and don't stand up against them?! How many people have tried to show "us" that our vote is not enough; and, in fact, that our votes are a pathetic attempt at a "say" and a "voice", and that the only "choices" of candidates that we have who have any chance of winning are all elitist, corrupt, corporate "go-along-ers", money-mongers, war-mongers and evil "business as usual" "polit-bureaucrat-icians" who every day "sell us a bill of goods", "sell us short" and "sell us out" by making "money-first", "military-first", terrorism, war, and murder sound synonymous with democracy, freedom, justice, peace, and "what America(ns) stand(s) for"?!! How many times have seeing-individuals attempted to get us to see and face that evil cannot be made synonymous with rightness, and that "might" DOES NOT "make right"; and how long have we been ignoring them AND the Truth?!!!
WHAT ARE WE DOING?! Are YOU a sheep; or are you a true-individual who stands up for the Truth and the protection of ALL mankind, and against ALL violations of national and international human rights?! I am hereby exercising my DUTY to inspire YOU!!
Please don't just agree and "do something about it" to be a "part" of what's right; don't just be a part of what's right to be able to "say" you were a part of it and did something; but do MORE, MORE, MORE, not to receive the approval of your friends and peers, and not to be "seen" as being a part of doing what's right!! DO MORE, MORE, MORE, even if you don't receive ANY approval or recognition of any kind from ANYBODY; and know in your heart that without a doubt you ARE making a difference for the BEST!!
STAND FOR NO WAR!! STAND FOR NOTHING BUT TRUE PEACE, LIBERTY AND JUSTICE, AND THE GREATEST OF ALL THESE, LOVE, TRUE LOVE!! STAND WITHOUT FAIL AGAINST ALL GREED, AVARICE, SELFISHNESS, HATRED, PREJUDICE, BIGOTRY, RACISM, INJUSTICE, TERRORISM, WARFARE, AND MURDER!! THIS IS WHAT, AND ONLY WHAT, SHOULD BE "AS AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE"!! THIS IS TRUE PATRIOTISM!! THIS IS WHAT BEING "AMERICAN" SHOULD BE ALL ABOUT!! NOT SUPPORTING WAR OF ANY KIND, EVER, ONLY TRUE PEACE, ONLY TRUE PEACE, ONLY TRUE PEACE, ONLY TRUE PEACE, ONLY TRUE PEACE!!
STAND FOR NO WAR!! STAND FOR NO WAR!! STAND FOR NO WAR!! STAND FOR NO WAR!! STAND FOR NO WAR!! THANK YOU!!
Also, please go to VoteNoWar.org to vote against the war in Iraq, and/or to stop it, if you haven't already done so, and/or (come back to my site after you do so and) read the following essay(s):

(3 December 2002
Updated 11 December 2002)
Now "Little Shrub" has gone over the deep end again and appointed, dare I name this evil name(?), Henry (Damned) Kissinger to allegedly "probe 9-11", one of the most literally evil "foreign policy advisors" to every President from John F. Kennedy to Ronald (Damned) Reagan, if not more, a "prime-mover" in the illegal and murderous bombing of Cambodia, and involved up to his neck in the disastrously macabre Iran-Contra scandal and its ensuing slaughter of thousands of innocent Panamanians, not to mention Nicaraguans, and only the 'top secret cleared' know what else!!
As if it wasn't bad enough when not long ago John Poindexter, another of the fascist "foreign policy" and/or "national security" advisors, who is just as evil as Kissinger, having been deeply involved in many of the same and similar "black projects" as those stated above, was appointed to oversee the "Homeland Security Taskforce" to determine how to "best" propose and set up the national "Office of Homeland Security", which is part of the military-industrial program of undermining human, civil and legal rights both domestically and internationally, and of bringing about a much larger authoritarian police state in the U.S. and abroad than already exists in the U.S.!!
"Little Bush" is a shameless liar!! Now he claims he believes that the United States is much better off because of racial integration, which no doubt it is; but he is a racist and part of the military-industrial complex agenda of eugenics and genocide against the Judeo-Christians and ethnic minorities!! Sure, he has "token blacks" in his administration who "toe his line" and believe as he does, "Uncle Toms'" who are also part of and support the evil agenda(s); but he would much rather have an "all white" administration and not have to work with black people at all!! What would be quite "telling" is if we could get him to be completely truthful about how he would feel about having a black president of this country; but he would never give an honest response to such a question!! Things are getting much more evil every day!!
The "Junior Bush" also claims that he does not want to curtail free speech, because he claims we live in a country where we have a right to exercise it, even if that free expression runs contrary to his policy actions; but the truth is that he, along with his cohorts, would dearly love to fully suspend free speech in a much more widespread fashion than they already are!! Here again he is shameless in attempting to make himself look good by making "politically correct" statements that he does not really, if at all, believe; and many, if not most, of his actions clearly show that he is going "all out" to fraudulently convince most "Americans" that he truly stands for truth and freedom!! It is just lie upon lie upon lie!!
What's next?! I and the rest of us probably don't want to know!! What do "they" know that most of us don't know?! Probably that most of "we Americans" are stupid enough to not only go along with Kissinger's appointment, but to actually approve of one of the prime Machiavelian masterminds, along with other people like he and Poindexter, of mass murder in the name of the military-industrial complex, corporate interests, the globalist one-world government agenda, and racist global eugenics and genocide, "conducting" the so-called probe into the events of the 11th of September, 2001!!
How much more of a bizarre turn of events could this be?! (Actually, it's really not so "bizarre", because it's [going to be, although it very likely is already] very much similar to the Warren Commission cover-up of JFK's assassination.) Again, we probably don't want to know; because, no doubt, there could be, and are, going to be much more macabre events happening very soon!! This is "only" one of many events leading up to the "greater" and "greater" ones, to culminate in the final, "crowning" one(s) that have been planned for decades if not hundred of years, and that I've spoken of elsewhere on this site!!
(SEE one of my "Human Rights Comments" pages, among my other writings in this site; and, very importantly, also read Howard Zinn's commentary on "Machiavellian 'Realism' and U.S. (government) Foreign Policy", from his book, DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE, Cross-Examining American Ideology, if you haven't already, on the second half of my "More Comments, Part 3" page [same reads like a "Who's Who" on several of the names I named above, with a summary of many of the evils they've committed that most of the "American" people aren't even aware of]!! All of this connects many of the dots as to what's really going on, and what the "hidden" agendas are that "they're" not even concerned about divulging anymore!!)
There cannot be any truly objective, non-partisan, impartial, and complete investigation into the circumstances of 9-11-01, AND TO DISCLOSE ALL OF THE REAL TRUTH OF ALL OF WHO WERE, AND WHAT WAS, INVOLVED, with anyone even remotely like Kissinger "leading out" in it!! Fortunately, there have been some, like Investigative Reporter William Thomas, in his book, ALL FALL DOWN: The Politics of Terror and Mass Persuasion, who have already brought out much of the truth of the Bush, Cheney, bin Laden, and other families and their other criminal conspirators', involvement in carrying out the ignominious "ends" and crime(s) of September 11th, 2001!! May the voices of such "truth-sayers", and many other similar voices for Truth, not be silenced; but may all of the evils and the evil-doers be completely stopped and forever silenced NOW!!
I hope and pray that there is a HUGE outcry, as there most-definitely should be, against this outrageously bizarre "appointment"!! These satanically-inspired "leaders", and advisors to such leaders, have no shame!! They rub our noses in their extreme evils (an excessive understatement, very sadly); and they expect that the majority of "Americans" will go along with it, and even support it, without any or much of a "hue and cry"!! IT IS DISGUSTING!! Let's not hesitate to call evils by their correct "names"!! AMERICANS, LET'S NOT LET SUCH HIDEOUS EVENTS TRANSPIRE ANYMORE!!!!! SPEAK OUT UNFLINCHINGLY AGAINST THIS TRAVESTY!!!!! TRUE AMERICANS CANNOT ALLOW THIS AND OTHER SUCH TRAVESTIES TO BE CARRIED OUT!!!!!
"VOTE" NO KISSINGER!! "VOTE" NO KISSINGER!! "VOTE" NO KISSINGER!! "VOTE" NO KISSINGER!! "VOTE" NO KISSINGER!! THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR TIME AND ENERGY IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TYRANNY AND ALL OF THE TRUE COMMITTERS' OF TREASON AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!! "VOTE" NO KISSINGER!!!!! "VOTE" NO KISSINGER!!!!! THANK YOU, AGAIN!!!!!
[Note (added to the site on 12-15-02): Thank Goodness Kissinger resigned from the 9-11 probe!! But, no doubt, he will continue to "consult" for it from the offices of his consulting firm, Kissinger Associates; and someone just as bad or worse, though perhaps not as obviously a bad choice, will be appointed by "The-President-by-Coup", "His Supreme 'Bushiness'", "George W. Bush, The Ruthless", to replace Master (of many Master Machiavellian Advisors and Murderers) Henry "Kiss(ed)-Every-President's-Behind" Kissinger!! Thank God that, ultimately, evil will NOT prevail as it is for the time being!!]

THE GREATEST THREATS TO FREEDOM
(10 December 2002)
The greatest threats to freedom are the masses of apathetic, complacent, falsely "patriotic", and complicit so-called Americans who believe the indoctrination and conditioning that leaving the protection of freedom to their votes and the "representatives" they elect is virtually all they need to do. These are the majority of people who so little understand True Democracy and the threats that all governments pose to True Freedom. They will blindly destroy, and/or "turn in" to the government, True American Patriots for being falsely accused of treason, sedition and heresy. This blind majority will themselves seek to destroy, or seek to have destroyed, the very ones who are trying to protect their freedoms; and will deceive themselves, or be deceived, to believe that in so turning against the True Patriots, they are supposedly taking the truly patriotic, correct and proper action(s). It has happened many times throughout history; and it will happen again very soon in the "United States of America", the "freest country on Earth".
The latest: "Bush seeks to have world attention focused on the disarmament of Iraq as the preeminent threat to world peace, while the real threat of nuclear war and the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction arises within the U.S. Administration. This is the politics of diversion and should give pause to those who are thinking of joining in Bush's sleight-of-hand anti-Iraq chorus believing it to be a path to peace. The nuclear threat posed by the United States is neither rhetoric nor speculation, it is the now announced doctrine and strategy of the Bush White House. It represents the ushering in of a new era of unrestrained and unprovoked catastrophic violence."
""Preemptive Strikes are Part of US Strategic Doctrine," reads the headline of the front page of the Washington Post of December 11, 2002. A classified version of the new Bush Doctrine "breaks with the fifty years of counter-proliferation efforts" by planning for the use of nuclear weapons against countries that not only have not attacked the US but that do not themselves possess nuclear capability." [ From International A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition, Washington, D.C.----There's also a GREAT, MUST READ, article by them below .----If you want to help take a stand against all of these Bush Administration actions, and/or for more information, please visit their website at: http://www.InternationalANSWER.org/campaigns/resources/
This is what the powers of darkness and the U.S. government are presently preparing the vast majority of "Americans" for. But, I want to make very clear that this should not discourage the True Patriots from continuing to carry out their stand(s) against this insidious trend, and against any and all other threats to True Freedom; for it is much better to suffer depravation, hardship, imprisonment, and even death, than to be a part of, and/or a supporter of, the ensuing darkness, as all those who to any degree accede to it will be, if they aren't already. No True Freedom has ever been stood up for and preserved in the past except by the self-sacrifice of True Patriots in those days; and no True Freedom will be fully stood up for and preserved today and in the near future except by the self-sacrifice of present-day True Patriots. And we must not fail to stand up and be counted against all the inroads of the antithesis or opposite of True Freedom, or we will be members of the wrong "camp", and ourselves be guilty of the destruction and murder of the Truly Innocent.
That is why we can't conscientiously accede to the corporate-government "wars" being presently waged against the "third world" by the U.S. government; because NONE of the thousands of innocent people who are currently being, and/or soon will be, murdered by the U.S. government are "acceptable losses" or understandable "collateral damage". THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS!! What "sick", depraved, "couched" language to make the deaths of thousands, even millions, of innocent people sound benign when there is NOTHING benign about it, either the murders or the language used to "defend" them!! There is NO defense for the rampant murder of thousands upon thousands of innocent victims for the "sake" of money!!
It's not surprising, but it IS really amazing, how the majority of people(s) the world-over so easily and blindly support the killing of so many innocent people as long as it isn't them!! If and/or when hundreds or thousands of "their own" are killed, they want and will usually get revenge; but the innocent people who are murdered in the crossfire supposedly don't have a right to get their own revenge according to the U.S. government and Israel!! It's grossly idiotic and absolutely pathetic; and, of course, it leads to a vicious circle of totally inexcusable killing(s)!! This is why we cannot go along with it by our apathy and complacency, and thereby be complicit in it, without standing for nothing but True Love, Peace, Freedom, Democracy, Liberation, Equality, and Justice FOR ALL!! NOW!!
Don't you see how dangerous you (potentially) are if you have little or no conscience about all of the thousands of innocent men, women, children, and little babies that are killed almost, if not, every year by the U.S. government, or if you ignore it??!! What can and will you (be able to) ignore next??!! The imprisonment, torture and murder of U.S. citizens for standing up for the Real Truth??!! One thing leads to another; and, over the years, the acquiescence to the death penalty and abortion, among other things, has led us to, and prepared us for, that very soon-to-happen occurrence. We've gotten too secure in the false assurances of our "freedom"; we let our guard down; and now we're soon to be drowning in many more deaths of the Truly Innocent because most of us don't understand the difference between false democracy and True Democracy!! Therefore, it behooves us ALL, if we haven't already, to find out and Truly learn the difference between them, NEVER FORGET IT, NEVER FORGET THE MILLIONS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED AT THE "HANDS" OF THE FORMER, to take a meaningful stand for the latter against the murder(s) of all innocent people(s), and to take that stand no matter what befalls us!!
We MUST take that stand; and we MUST take it NOW!! Please don't be a part of those who condemn those who are taking that stand; for we ALL will answer sooner or later for being on the wrong side, usually sooner than later, and in one way or another, or in many ways!! We always "reap what we sow", both by what we immediately or soon thereafter suffer as a result, and by our final accounting for all of our transgressions against others'; and NONE of us can or will escape it!! It is NOT worth it to be on the wrong side; and it IS worth EVERYTHING to be on the right side!! We MUST non-violently defend the innocent(s); and we must NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM support killing our fellowman by, or actually kill(ing) our fellowman for, "our" government OR ANYONE ELSE; and, as there are absolutely NO excuses for ANY evil(s), there are absolutely NO excuses for the evil(s) of ANY kind(s) of murder of our fellowman. Neither are there ANY justifications for such killing(s) and murder IN ANY WAY(S) WHATSOEVER!!
We are ALL on one side or the other!! There is NO "in between", NO "gray area"!! As much as most attempt to assure themselves that they're supposedly safely ensconced "in between", and not responsible or guilty for the imprisonment, torture and slaughter of the Truly Innocent, they are ALL still complicit in it; and they ALL will be held accountable for it!!
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON??!! ARE YOU TRULY ON THE SIDE OF LOVE AND PEACE; OR ARE YOU ON THE SIDE OF MURDER??!! WHERE DO YOU STAND; AND WHAT DO YOU NOW STAND FOR??!! WE'VE ALL GOT TO MAKE THE CHOICE; AND WE ALL MAKE IT, WHETHER WE KNOW IT OR NOT, IF WE HAVEN'T ALREADY!!!! THERE IS NO ESCAPING IT!!!! WE WILL ALL EITHER BE ON THE SIDE OF MURDER OR ON THE SIDE OF LOVE AND PEACE; AND WE CANNOT BE BOTH!!!! AND THE LONGER YOU PUT OFF MAKING THE CHOICE AND TAKING THE STAND FOR LOVE AND PEACE, THE MORE LIKELY YOU WILL CHOOSE FOR MURDER AND THAT IT WILL BE TOO LATE TO CHOOSE LOVE AND PEACE; AGAIN, IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY!!!! WHEREFORE, CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FENCE NOW, AND CEASE CONTINUING TO ATTEMPT TO IMPOSSIBLY STRADDLE THE FENCE, BEFORE IT IS FOREVER TOO LATE!!!!

ADDRESSING IGNORANCE, PART ONE
(Written on or about 20 January 2003)
The U.S. government perpetrates global terrorism! Wake up, man, and see the light! What you say is typical brainwashed rhetoric and blind following of the blind! If "we", the U.S., "take Saddam out" as you put it, we will likely have something much worse than 9-11 inflicted upon us! If 9-11 wasn't an act of the globalist conspiracy involving Bush, Cheney and the entire bin Laden family, as well as many others, which there is a great deal of evidence that it was [SEE William Thomas' book, ALL FALL DOWN: The Politics of Terror and Mass Persuasion, among others], it was an act of revenge for the millions of innocent Arab peoples, including men, women, children, and little babies, that the U.S. government has either had a direct hand in murdering, or was directly or indirectly involved in supporting the murder of, since WW2; and, if we keep pushing these people, we are provoking a much worse situation than we now have!
Think for yourself and stop parroting the propaganda of evil murderers for multi-national business interests, and military and political reasons! I AM a patriot; and all those like myself who are the "lone" voices of sanity against the insanity of any and all war(s), are the ONLY true patriots! Those who are like yourself, though you think you are the true patriots, are puppets and pawns of evil, darkness and murder, and are NOT patriots AT ALL!
True Patriots stand only for True Democracy for ALL people(s) the world over; and murdering more millions of innocent Iraqis is not going to be bringing democracy to them! I love my country; but I do not love my government! NO ONE is supposed to love and support their government over sanity, True Love, Peace, Freedom, Democracy, Liberation, Equality, and Justice FOR ALL! All governments are by their very nature and existence corrupt; and ONLY the country must be loved, which those who stand up against the evils and corruptions of their government(s) are doing more than any of those who support war mongering, racism and hate; and NO ONE should support their governments' insanity(ies)!
No, the Iraqi people don't have the basic freedom of protesting against their government; but, believe me and them, that most if not all of them do not want the U.S. government to attack their country and kill tens of thousands more innocent men, women, children, and little babies, even though they do not like their evil dictatorship anymore than the West does! A True Democracy, which the U.S. government most-definitely is NOT, does not force it's will on sovereign countries, dictate to them what they must do (particularly when the U.S. has more nuclear, chemical and biological weapons than any other country in the world---so, how hypocritical it is for the U.S. government to "command" other countries not to possess them when we are brandishing them against the rest of the world), and seek to conquer and dominate them like an imperialist government! Imperialism is not democratic in any way, shape or form!
No doubt you won't follow my recommendation(s) to read them; but get a true education on history and U.S. foreign policy(ies), and if you read nothing else, read three books, ROGUE STATES by Noam Chomsky, and THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, A People's History and DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE, Cross-Examining American Ideology by Howard Zinn, excerpts of which are all found on my website on my "More Comments, Part(s) One", "Two" and "Three" pages; and if, after reading those books in full, you are still for what the U.S. government stands for and is doing, I will stop trying to show you the right way!
I used to be indoctrinated and conditioned to believe like you and most "Americans" do; but I have had my eyes completely opened to what is really going on! Do you claim to be a Christian and believe that the devil exists like most "Americans" claim? If so, then you should know that OF COURSE (a) huge conspiracy(ies) exist(s) and is/are running the world; and you should then know that the U.S. government is NOT Christian, though it claims that it is!
Please read my page on my website known as my "Religious Comments" page, at: http://www.Form-Legal.com/relicomments.html; as the U.S. government is soon going to institute, and require everyone to follow on threat of imprisonment and/or death, a so-called Christian government, doing away with the Constitutional "separation of church and state"! The Bushs', Cheneys', Rumsfelds', Ashcrofts', and many others, all part of the "religious right", are for it and are seeking to bring it about!
War is NEVER ANY WAY to expel evil! Evil CANNOT be expelled with EVIL! Two wrongs DON'T make one right; and the ends NEVER justify the means when the ends and means to the ends are evil and/or wrong! Do the dissenters represent that much (24%) of the total population of the U.S.? If so, that is the equivalent of half of the half of the populace that votes! Only the other half of that half (one quarter of the U.S. populace) supposedly put G.W. Bush in office; but they did NOT! He unconstitutionally and illegally obtained office by a very successful coup aided by the majority-conservative U.S. Supreme Court who violated and overthrew democracy by stopping the Florida vote recount which has been proven beyond any doubt would have shown that President Gore should now be in office if it had not been stopped! Again, wake up; and cease blindly following the blind down to ultimate destruction very soon!
The vast majority of "Americans" do NOT see the true problem(s), and are NOT Truly courageous AT ALL, or they would ONLY seek Peaceful solutions! ONLY cowards seek revenge against anyone! Shall we make ourselves just as bad as those cowards who attacked us on 9-11!? That is what the majority of false-Americans usually do; but that is not what the country that professes to be a true democracy and a Christian country should do in any way whatsoever! But the U.S. government does so anyway; and, as a result, is the most hypocritical government on the face of the Earth!
We do NOT have to love our government to Love our country; and we must not love hate, vindictiveness, war, murder, anti-democracy, inequality, and injustice OF ANY KIND(S), IN ANY WAY(S)!
ONLY for True Love, Peace, Liberty, Democracy, Liberation, Equality, and Justice, FOR ALL,

"UNITE TO FIGHT THE WARMAKERS"!
(Written by Brian Becker of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition on or
about 1-24-03 to 2-2-03 - Posted on this site on 5-27-03)
"Unable to contend with the historic and constitutional right of the people to control their own government and the direction of their country, the Bush administration has now launched an assault on the anti-war movement. As the clock ticks down and the administration rushes to wage war against Iraq, it is starting another war here at home against the people of the United States.
"On January 18, 2003 half a million people marched in Washington, D.C. in a true democratic expression of their opposition to an illegal and immoral war of aggression being driven by a tiny few who hold the reigns of military and economic might. Another 200,000 marched in San Francisco. Around the world people in over 35 countries held solidarity demonstrations. Now we are all mobilizing for the February 15/16, 2003 mass actions against the war that have been initiated by the European peace movement. The people of conscience who are taking to the streets represent the sentiments of so many millions more. This is a powerful rejection of the Bush administration's attempt to drag us all into war and global conflagration.
"On January 28, 2003, ten days after the historic January 18, 2003 march, the Free Congress Foundation, the Center for Security Policy and other ultra-right wing members of the U.S. political establishment, including former officials of the Heritage Foundation and the Reagan administration, began promoting the creation of a new version of the House Un-American Activities Committee to investigate not only the organizers but the demonstrators themselves who came to Washington to protest Bush's march to war.
"On January 30, 2003 the New York Daily News published the Bush administration's latest smear -- a purportedly leaked intelligence report from his Homeland Security department claiming that "Iraqi spies" came to the U.S. from Canada to carry out the anti-war demonstrations.
"This first act for Bush's Homeland Security department -- which had officially opened a mere six days earlier -- speaks volumes about what Bush's view of "homeland security" is: using the power of the government to lie, to discredit, to disrupt and to try to shut down the opposition of the people of the U.S. to his program of violent domination and empire.
"The Center for Security Policy is a group funded by arms manufacturers and big business who are being given the U.S. taxpayer's money looted from programs that would otherwise fund education, healthcare and jobs in America. The Free Congress Foundation is a haven for extremists so out of step with social justice that they pay staff members who have written that we in the U.S. might be better off if the confederacy had won the civil war, who advocate that the racist Trent Lott should have remained in his leadership position, who push anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and who spoke at a neo-Nazi conference last summer. These groups both work with and are received by the Bush Administration.
"We call on all people of conscience to rally together and defend our movement for justice and peace. The red-baiting and demonization of certain leading anti-war organizations has one purpose -- to weaken the whole peace movement.
"PURPOSE OF RED-BAITING: TO STOP COLLECTIVE ACTION AND SILENCE DISSENT"
"These efforts are the apex of a repugnant red-baiting campaign against the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition because of its role as a principal organizer of the mass grassroots movement of opposition to war throughout the United States. It is not only A.N.S.W.E.R. that is the target of these attacks. The Not In Our Name Project (NION) and others who have been organizing for peace have also been subject to virulent red-baiting.
"The point of the associational red-baiting and smear campaign is to warn all of us who are coming out into the streets, many who have found public voice for the first time and are empowered by the strength of their actions, that what we think we experienced is tainted, that we are dupes of some hidden hand and should go back inside. These are the identical mechanisms that were used by the government to try to destroy the labor movement of the thirties and forties and the civil rights and anti-war movements of the fifties, sixties and seventies. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was labeled a "communist sympathizer.")
"All of us who have been involved with the Coalition have been subjected to an intensive associational red-baiting attack that emanates from pro-war supporters. It often gets carried by others who claim to be from the progressive community but who unfortunately are more focused on engaging in sectarian factionalization than, on the eve of war, stopping a needless slaughter. Fortunately, the thousands of people organizing around the country to stop this war drive have been rejecting these efforts, as is evidenced from the success of the mobilizations and the outpouring of support received by A.N.S.W.E.R. at the grassroots level.
"THE JANUARY 18, 2003 DEMONSTRATION AND THE RED-BAITING TACTICS"
"The demonstrations have been supported by, organized by, and attended by persons from all walks of life. For January 18, 2003, hundreds of thousands of people traveled all night by bus and car from communities around the country with their children, their grandparents, their friends and neighbors, many attending their first demonstration and not knowing fully what to expect. Once arriving in the freezing cold of D.C. or the streets of San Francisco they met others from different backgrounds who shared a simple and heartfelt demand: that there be no war of aggression launched by the government of the U.S. on the people of Iraq. We have heard stories of the veteran from Pennsylvania who spent the day with the family from Alabama, the mother and her son from Mississippi who made new friends with the students from Wisconsin. We all listened as speakers representing veterans, labor and working people, youth and students, communities of faith, members of congress, artists and writers, and fighters for social justice from different struggles all brought messages of solidarity in opposition to a war on Iraq. And then we all marched together.
"Those who seek to diminish and divide this growing movement often dishonestly claim that A.N.S.W.E.R. is a "front" group in order to diminish the Coalition and all the people from different backgrounds and organizations that are part of it, including on its Steering Committee, and who have their own honorable independent histories in the anti-war and social justice movements. The red-baiters have focused on singling out the presence of socialists and Marxists, in particular members of the Workers World Party (a socialist party in the U.S.), because some people in that party have been prominent in supporting the anti-war movement and the work of A.N.S.W.E.R. and their political positions have been routinely caricatured.
"Those who claim that A.N.S.W.E.R. is a "front" demonstrate their own racist and elitist perception of reality. Oddly invisible to them is the role of the various communities and organizations, including Arab Americans, African Americans, Korean Americans, Filipino Americans, Latinos, faith-based and solidarity groups who clearly have a central leadership role in organizing A.N.S.W.E.R. and carrying out the actions of the past year.
"That there are socialists or Marxists in the peace movement is neither a shock, nor a matter for repudiation. There are also Democrats, Republicans, Greens, anarchists, independents, and people with no party affiliation, and everyone is welcome. This is a united front of opposition that is becoming a big problem for the administration -- hence the stepped up demonization and red-baiting, particularly after successful mass actions.
"WHAT IS "MAINSTREAM" AMERICA: THE POWER OF REAL DEMOCRACY"
"While thousands of grassroots activists have worked tirelessly organizing their communities, holding teach-ins, handing out leaflets, putting up posters, and doing all the other necessary tasks to build a movement to stop Bush's war against Iraq, it is sad that a few on the sidelines claiming to speak for the liberal and progressive community have so willingly been partners with the right wing and pro-war supporters in their efforts to disrupt the growing peace movement. Much of the red-baiting and disinformation campaign emanated first from the pages of the Nation magazine and its columnists, which is now approvingly cited by the new Joe McCarthys in the conservative establishment. Some writers who have done nothing to organize against the war -- Todd Gitlin, Marc Cooper, Christopher Hitchens, David Corn and a few others -- have been feverishly exposing "reds" in the anti-war movement and demanding purges for months.
"A handful of people who claim to be leaders of the peace movement have also supported these attacks and demurred that they are not red-baiting but only trying to look out for the best interests of the movement. They state that the anti-war movement must appeal to "mainstream America" and that A.N.S.W.E.R.'s leadership and organizing, despite the turnout of hundreds of thousands of people in the streets, is a barrier to reaching that "mainstream" America. They wrongly insist that A.N.S.W.E.R.'s linking issues of war, racism and economic justice -- inclusion of the struggle against the death penalty, or presenting a taped anti-war message to the demonstration from political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, or supporting Palestinian self-determination -- that this bringing together unity of different social justice struggles to oppose war on Iraq can only "limit" the anti-war movement.
"A.N.S.W.E.R. has mobilized the largest demonstrations against the Bush administration's policies that have been filled not only by radical activists but by broad sections of the population reaching across ethnicities, races, genders, economic status and many political divides to include many who are participating for the first time in political protests.
"'Mainstream,' when used by those who wish to narrow the movement and its outreach, is however, a code word in the political lexicon that refers to upper middle-class white America. A.N.S.W.E.R. wants to and has reached and included all sectors of the society. When we use the term mainstream we mean not only the middle class, but the broad, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-national working population in the United States. History proves that the most powerful mass movements are those that give voice to sectors of society that are traditionally disenfranchised or ignored or demonized. Together we are building demonstrations and a movement that reflects the real mainstream America -- all of us. This has been echoed by the thousands of people from all backgrounds who have written about their experiences standing shoulder-to-shoulder with people they would never otherwise have met, who are from different communities, and how for the first time they have felt the power of democracy in America.
"'Mainstream' is also used as code for something else. It means opposing some tactics of Bush's war while embracing the government rationale for its twelve-year quiet war against Iraq, including genocidal sanctions that the UN admits has killed over one million Iraqi civilians, and accepting the fundamental assumption of the Bush administration that the U.S. must "do something about Iraq." The entirely false characterization and spin provided by these pundits, and those who parrot them, is that those who oppose the imperial ambitions of the U.S. in the Middle East are necessarily political apologists for Saddam Hussein. Simply put, if the people in Iraq want to carry out regime change, that is one thing. When the Pentagon and the CIA attempt to use sanctions and military invasion to create a puppet regime, that is something altogether different. Counterposed to Bush's doctrine of pre-emptive war and forcible regime change, A.N.S.W.E.R. supports the right of Iraqi people to determine their own destiny. The same can be said about the U.S. conflict with North Korea, Cuba or any other Third World country that attempts to retain its sovereignty in the face of U.S. military aggression and economic blockade.
"In the past week, the red-baiting attacks have been picked up and intensified by corporate media such as NPR and the New York Times, who also approvingly cite the "progressive" publications and enlist other sectarians who claim to be part of the peace movement, to give credibility to their demonization of the peace movement. Below is a link to an audio piece from NPR's Fresh Air from last week, which has compelled people from all over the country to condemn NPR and send messages of support to the anti-war movement.
"LESSONS OF THE MCCARTHY ERA"
"The historical link between the current attacks and the 1950s McCarthy era is striking. As the social justice movement emerged from the 1950s, the result of red-baiting was clear for all to see: socialists had been fired from their jobs, driven from unions, and also from "progressive" organizations who were purging their ranks. As the pressure grew, even the ACLU, which purportedly defended free speech unconditionally, capitulated and purged its ranks of communists and socialists who had played an invaluable role in the movement to defend the Bill of Rights. It even reported on activists to FBI head J. Edgar Hoover and the House Un-American Activities Committee. The attacks spread to those who were designated as "fellow travelers" and even to those who simply signed petitions against the atomic bomb. Actor Paul Robeson and renowned scientist Linus Pauling (who won two Nobel prizes, including one for peace) had their passports lifted by the U.S. government. This is recognized as a shameful period of witch-hunting in America.
"The red-baiting limited the anti-war movement during the Korean War and critically weakened the labor movement in the U.S. At the start of growing opposition to the Vietnam War in the mid-1960s, the established "peace" groups demanded that socialists and Marxists also be purged from anti-war groups and organizing, just as Corn, Gitlin and their group of armchair activists are demanding now. But young people who took the leadership of the anti-war movement, the people who took to the streets, rejected these demands. Ultimately, because division efforts similar to those clamored for now failed, the mass movement was built with many voices and the progressive community played a leading and decisive role in the protracted struggle that brought an end to the Vietnam War.
"This new attack is a disgraceful course of conduct, one reminiscent of loyalty oaths and one that will not be tolerated.
"We in the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition choose to work together and choose to stand side by side because we oppose war, racism, sexism and homophobia and share a common belief: support for the right of people to live decent non-exploited lives, in peace and with justice and self-determination. As evidenced by the mass demonstrations on September 29, 2001, April 20, 2002, October 26, 2002, and most recently January 18, 2003, so also do hundreds of thousands of people.
"OUR FUTURE TOGETHER"
"We speak on behalf of many grassroots organizers around the country who are building a movement to stop a criminal war of aggression that will needlessly endanger the lives of U.S. servicepeople and kill thousands of innocent Iraqis for Big Oil's interests, and that will loot the national Treasury, diverting money from healthcare, jobs and education to arms-makers and corporate war profiteers.
"Constructive criticism and dialogue about political disagreements is healthy for the movement and a sign of maturity. But we categorically reject the demands for purging, factionalization, sectarianism, and red-baiting that seeks to divide people at the very moment when unity is required to stop Bush and company from waging an endless war against the people of the world.
"We encourage all to join in as we continue to build a potent force of unequaled breadth and diversity, with many different voices and viewpoints, united to stop this war drive.
"Otherwise the Bush Administration, its warmongering supporters, and those who would play directly into their hands for their own sectarian purposes, will be able to divide a growing movement, shut down powerful dissent and scare off and silence people just as happened in the McCarthy era to those who then opposed atomic weapons, the war in Korea, and the legal Jim Crow apartheid in the U.S. It took the progressive movement more than a decade to regain its footing. We probably don't have that kind of time right now."

NOW, FOR SOMETHING MORE ON HEALTH AND/OR DISABILITY ISSUES AGAIN, ADDED TO THE SITE ON 12-15-02; AND THERE WILL BE MORE HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES ADDRESSED JUST BELOW THAT:
A LETTER TO PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED IN
RESEARCHING AND/OR INVESTIGATING ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS:
Hi, Gail and "Bernie ([the Attorney"] Kansky, President, National CFIDS Foundation)!! Hi, Len (Horowitz)!! Hi, Will(iam Thomas)!! Hi Nancy and Garth (Nicholson)!! Hi, Joyce (Riley)!! Hi, others' as well!!
(Please pass this message on to all of these individuals [I am unable to e-mail all of them], and others' who this entire matter concerns and/or should be interested in and/or concerned with same; and (then), pass it around as far and wide as possible, as you are able!! Thank you!!):
I'm having one of those rare periods of somewhat "clear-minded-ness"; and my brain has been "storming" some ideas for things to look into: As I may have told you, I was born in Las Vegas at the time (1956) when the U.S. government was still doing both below- and above- ground atomic bomb testing; and that's when I believe my immune system was originally, most-seriously compromised, as well as by genetic factors including the fact(s) that both my father and mother were alcoholics and smoked cigarettes heavily before and at the time of my conception (though my sisters, who were conceived and born in California, don't appear to have as serious immune-compromising), making me most- susceptible to ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS. As a result, the following questions have come to mind:
1.) Do a higher percentage of life-long residents of the wider Las Vegas area, as well as more or less directly east of there, e.g., St. George, Utah, have a higher rate of ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS but haven't been properly diagnosed with them, if they're still alive and haven't already died of cancer(s) (or do their descendants have a higher incidence of same though they're not diagnosed)? Do other such areas where their environment has been extremely and detrimentally compromised have high(er) incidents of ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS patients?
2.) What were the factors, or what was the single-most factor, that compromised the immune systems of those who came down with ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS in the outbreaks, and the outbreak areas? Why north Lake Tahoe, Nevada? Why Lyndonville, New York? Why Charlotte, North Carolina? Etc.? Did most of the patients originally come from elsewhere, where their immune systems were compromised? If so, what was the single-most factor, or what were the combination of factors, that originally compromised their immune systems in those places and made them prone to ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS? Many places in the United States are not healthy places to live because of things that took place there over the last several decades or so, and because of things that are still going on or are now going on (i.e., the storage of radioactive waste such as in the Moab, Utah area, etc.)?. Was uranium for the production of plutonium, etc., mined there (as was done in wide areas of Colorado and Utah)? Were they sprayed with biological weapons testing on the civilian populace as San Francisco was in the late 1950's and early 1960's (if it can be determined and proven)? Or what other health-compromising factor(s) took place in those particular areas, or where ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS outbreaks occurred, if not the former factors? Did they live too close to power transformers for a long time, etc.? What so-seriously compromised their immune systems?
3.) Where did ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS patients most likely pick up the HHV-6A, Strain GS? Do most people carry it as they do HHV-6B? Does HHV-6B mutate to HHV-6A in immune-compromised people? Are HHV-6A and HHV-6B really the same virus that is altered as the result of the presence of HIV and/or other viral/bacterial/chemical agent (such as Malathion, etc.) factor(s)? Do HHV-6B and/or other herpes viruses show genetic fingerprints/footprints of creation by man as HHV-6A, Strain GS and HIV do? Though asked by others' before, is (a more serious form of?) HHV-6A, Strain GS infection really the true cause of AIDS? Do the combination of HHV-6A, Strain GS and HIV infection(s), and/or the combination of other viral/bacterial/chemical factors, cause AIDS? Are the combination of HHV-6A, Strain GS and other viral/bacterial/chemical factors (HIV infection has already been ruled out) the real cause of ME/CFIDS/FMS/MCS?
These questions, and others that (should come about and/or) are generated as the result of same, should be thoroughly investigated and/or researched, if they haven't already been, or aren't already being looked into; and I respectfully and perseveringly beseech you to do so.
Thank you for your serious consideration of this entire message!!

GOVERNOR RYAN'S COMMUTATION OF THE ILLINOIS DEATH PENALTY,
AND PARDON(S) OF SEVERAL DEATH ROW INMATES
(Added to the site on 20 January 2003)
I am so heartened by what Governor Ryan did in Illinois, and what it proves about the injustice(s) of the death penalty; but I am concerned that it gives a false hope. Believe me, what he did is not going to cause the repeal of the death penalty nationwide; and it will probably cause even more injustice; because the proponents of the death penalty, who staunchly defend evil for evil, and who will defend it "to the death", given the opportunity(ies), of anyone who is an opponent of the death penalty, will do even more to assure that those who are falsely accused of capital crimes will get the death penalty and are actually killed for their alleged crimes, without fully truthful, sufficient evidence(s) of their guilt. There will very likely be much more abuse of authority under color of State law(s), and abuse of discretion by judges, than there already is. But that does not mean that Governor Ryan should not have done what he did; and, even so, his actions were most definitely the right thing to do; and more government officials should do such good.
It took a great deal of courage for Governor Ryan to take the action(s) that he did! I don't think there's been as courageous a Governor as Ryan, nor any more courageous politician, in the history of the United States, and perhaps the entire world; and there is very rarely anything so just done in this country and/or world! He knew before he made the final decision(s) to pardon several inmates on death row and to commute the sentences of all the rest of death row inmates in Illinois to life in prison, that he was going to be vilified all over the nation, and that it would effectively and probably permanently destroy his political reputation and future, if he had any; and yet he chose to do it anyway, which took an immense amount of courage. And, unfortunately, due to the ignorance and vindictiveness of the vast majority of "Americans", Governor Ryan will probably go down in history so-vilified and supposedly discredited, rather than as the hero he was and is for taking the action(s) that he took; though he should primarily be remembered as such a hero and doer of what is truly right, just, courageous, moral, and tremendous!

Postscript: I'm looking for someone to go 50/50 with me and move to either Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, or Mexico where we can make a very low income go much further with a lower cost, and higher standard, of living (than living in the States on such a low income). This includes an only income of Social Security Disability (SSDI) and/or Retirement benefits. The Social Security Administration most definitely DOES allow SSDI and/or Retirement benefits, but not Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, to be sent to recipients in most other countries! There are many books about moving and living abroad available at the public library and/or at Amazon.com . Naturally, I realize we would probably have to spend some time getting to know eachother, and finding out if we're compatible, before moving abroad together. We could even have our own separate "spaces" by choosing to rent or purchase a house or apartment with separate quarters, and still save considerable money in monthly costs compared to living in the States on the same income. If you might be interested, want to ask me some questions, and/or want to discuss it, please e-mail me at the address below.
