Newsroom (from BBC World - this cabinet choice got very limited press in the United States of Amerika!) Dubya... "...has nominated Paul O'Neill, the chairman of multi-national aluminum company Alcoa .. secretary of the treasury." and the democrats cheered! there is Bauxite in Indonesia - and decades of oppression. there is Bauxite in Africa - and decades of oppression. Wherever there is Bauxite, there is Alcoa. And decades of oppression. Globalization? Sieg Heil!

You've probably observed a mysterious silence on this Blog while all the Bush cabinet bozos matched by. The choice of former Alcoa CEO Paul O'Neill, amid cheers from Democrats ices the cake for me. Anyone reading a weblog dedicated to "Green Issues" and the "Fight against globalization" knows that Alcoa has been key to our systematic oppression of South America. It's clear at this point that our hemisphere is lost to fascism, and our only hope is with those who were brave enough and conscious enough to put their lives on the line in Seattle and Prague.

Top Stories at Netscape.com "a District of Columbia rule requiring that people have written permission from the chief of police to make speeches in public, had already been declared unconstitutional in 1976 by another judge." What does this teach us? Who would even try to attempt such a flagrant violation of our basic human rights? In our nations capital! Be ever vigilant or the NAZI police will encroach on your rights as an American citizen to the extent that they can. Never stop fighting back! Who would imagine that a chief of police should ever have to right to determine if a speech could be read in public! The fact that this HAD TO GO TO COURT is a sad commentary on Amerika! Who can afford to take issues of our basic freedoms to court again and again? Well, who can afford to buy the presidency by brainwashing and intimidating the populace? Without even getting a majority of votes? Don't sit still for fascism. We fought it in the 40s in spite of the Bush family's support of Adolph Hitler. They had property confiscated in 1943 for "trading with the enemy" and the records are still available from the department of state. Today they are. Next week they just might be classified. Give this administration the axe before it even gets started. This is a BASTARD administration and good reason for the type of revolution that Thomas Jefferson forsaw.

what we need to do for the INAUGURAUCTION is find a cute pizza delivery girl from Texas to give Dubya a down-home greetin' for his first day in the oval orfice. Start things out the the real Republican way.

"Fresh Green Blog" comes to you from Eugene Oregon - and once again I'd like to cut the polital blather for a moment to put in a plug for one of our local artists- Nancy Bright With the Saturday Market closed until Spring, Nancy's income has dropped to about zero, in spite of the 10,000+ visitors she's had at her gallery. Her greeting cards are actually less expensive than the "commercial" variety, and prints are also available at reasonable prices. I'm posting this to help support a local artist, whose images are well known throughout Oregon. Avoid those cluttered shopping sites - Nancy has an 800#. Cards by Nancy Bright
