Reminders. . .

See The Previous 3 Reprised Postings, Which Are Needed Reminders
by The Old Hippie Because It's All Still True, And Continuing To Worsen


"...even though they can take away my liberties with laws, can take away my wealth, power, position, freedom, security, hopes, and even my life - The one thing they can not take from me,
is my knowledge.  The "old truism" of "knowledge is power" is not a cliché, and it has never had more meaning, at least in the American political reality, than now."

If you haven't yet read today's three previous reprised postings, please do that now.
Then return here, and read the new items presented in this posting.


= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

A listing of recent, and current, articles of importance, and interest beyond "just politics."  News, information, and informed opinion with a reality-based perspective.
All of which were selected for the over-all impact of the information/opinion each present - and the fact that they are damn hard to find in the American corporate media, if at all, and when found there, they're usually buried, or twisted by the wants of political theater and profit, over the needs of the public interest.

All selections are clearly linked to their sources.

I have strived to make sure all of the selections are fair, balanced, and reality-based.  Not the biased partisan propaganda pretending to be news, which has reached such a level as to be a real danger to the continuing existence of our democracy.

Enjoy. . .

"Environmentalist Robert Kennedy Jr. takes aim at the press, blaming the major TV networks
for failing to focus on the environmental record of the Bush administration -- an administration
he calls "the worst in history" for environmental protection.  Join host Colin Sullivan and reporter Darren Samuelsohn for a very lively edition of OnPoint."

With a Hush and a Whisper,
Bush Drops Town Hall Meeting with Germans

by Matthias Gebauer in Berlin & Georg Mascolo in Washington - spiegel.de - Feb. 23. 2005


[ As presented at the P.O.A.C. ]
"Bush cancels town hall meeting with German citizens because German government wouldn't guarantee friendly audience and softball questions.  
Where's Jeff Gannon when you need him? -ed."

[ As presented by the original authors of the article. ]
"During his trip to Germany on Wednesday, the main highlight of George W. Bush's trip was meant to be a "town hall"-style meeting with average Germans.  But with the German govern-
ment unwilling to permit a scripted event with questions approved in advance, the White House has quietly put the event on ice.  Was Bush afraid the event might focus on prickly questions about Iraq and Iran rather than the rosy future he's been touting in Europe this week?"

[ As presented by this Old Hippie. ]
"Try to imagine any other president in our history being so cowardly.  Even his father, or Nixon, would have had the guts to face any questions by the German people, but not this one, not this corrupted "Godly president" of the convinced rich."

Why is Bush Betraying America?

by James - MyNetRoot.com Blog - Feb. 23. 2005


"While paranoid fascists like Hinderocket from the "blog of the year" spout off about the demo-
cratic party's plans to "betray America", based on nothing but right wing rhetoric and zero facts.
Here's a factual list of Bush's 2006 budget, and factual ways he is currently betraying America by cutting its funding.  This list doesn't include programs he plans on significantly reducing funding on.  Notice how many education programs he's cutting.  Say goodbye to your future."
