One Day I'll Post Good News...
Environmental and healthy-farming advocates are learning what tobacco-free campaigners learned in the 1990s: When local governments step up to protect their community's citizens, industry responds by taking away the authority of local governments.
(There is nothing new in big business trying to take control of a product. I don't think enough people are speaking out against this monopoly on our food supply, on GMO's, and the hands of family farms being tied and I wonder if it will be too late by the time people start caring. But what if there is more to this than meets the eye? Like: Control the food=Control the population. Just something to think about. A_R)

Galloway wipes the floor with Sky News anchor
She might as well have punched him in the face and handed him a gun.
The Largest Biological Experiment Ever
In 2002, Gro Harlem Brundtland, then head of the World Health Organization, told a Norwegian journalist that cell phones were banned from her office in Geneva because she personally becomes ill if a cell phone is brought within about four meters (13 feet) of her. Mrs. Brundtland is a medical doctor and former Prime Minister of Norway. This sensational news, published March 9, 2002 in Dagbladet, was ignored by every other newspaper in the world.
Remember These Children
None of the children on these pages presented a danger to their killers, whether they were Israeli soldiers or Palestinian militants. We extend our deepest sympathy to the families of every child who has been killed.
Courage to Refuse
To date, 629 combatants from all units of the IDF and from all sectors of the Israeli society have signed the letter and have joined Courage to Refuse.
Beginning with the use of nuclear energy for military purposes, mankind has entered a seemingly endless race to harness the natural forces within the planet, in the atmosphere and in space for waging war. The earth is already gravely affected by many of those secret research and testing programmes leading to unpredictable environmental and epidemiological consequences.
Photos of Babies Deformed at Birth as a Result of Depleted Uranium
WARNING: Extremely Graphic Images !We are quite horrified by them. But... the denial that these innocent children have been deformed by the practices of the Unites States Armed Forces' use of depleted uranium is a much bigger problem that leads to yet more innocent children and people of all ages being permanently injured. It has been said that ignorance is bliss. If you are seeking bliss, other websites cater to that desire.Imagine. . . Put yourself in the shoes of a parent of one of these children
Pentagon Implements Global Military
The following report raises some very serious concerns. It points to the involvement of US special forces in countries which do not represent a threat to the US and with which the US is not at war. The SOCOM program essentially carries out the mandate of the 2000 Project for a New American Century, which contemplated the sending in of Special Forces in "non theater war" situations. These operations were described in the PNAC as part of the so-called "constabulary functions".
Connect: Our bombs,Their Little Bodies
The front page of every paper I looked at yesterday carried pictures of children dead at the hands of Israeli bombs. Bodies covered with scarves or shawls, as if to protect them from the brutal sun. Tiny feet showing the age of far too many of these victims. These were not terrorists. They were not soldiers or spies. They were children. Learning to find a place in the world. Was the next great peace maker killed today, before she learned to speak and draw to her side the hearts of the people she would have led, if not for the bombs? What crime was committed by the pregnant woman who died, taking with her the unborn child she carried?
Israel: Operation Jack & Jill?
There is another interesting fact about the hydrological geography of this area. About 32 km north of Israel the Litani river, flowing south in the Bekaa valley of Lebanon, takes a sharp right turn and flows to the Mediterranean sea. The Litani river is an important water source for Lebanon, and Israel for a long time has coveted access to this river. In addition, rivers make such wonderful boundaries - they are so well defined - not like the present ill-defined boundary between Israel and Lebanon - and they are easy to defend. All of this sprung to my mind when last night I saw a map quickly shown on TV, which supposedly showed Israel's idea of a "buffer zone" between itself and Lebanon. It went right up to the Litani river.
