This guy speaks to the
heart of our social, political, spiritual, etc dilemmas, a real modern
wise man and hero. He covers a lot of important ground in this talk. One
might say, this ain't Zen. I came here cause it's a Zen site. But look at
it this way: there are two wheels to the temple and I've chanted "may they
turn eternally," in days when I chanted more. The two wheels are the
dharma wheel and the economic wheel. We tend to think of Zen as being the
dharma. But the economic wheel assures that there's a roof over our heads
and food in our bowl, and clean air to breathe and pure water to drink and
that there isn't social chaos or debilitating despotism and so forth so
that we may be of sound, untroubled mind and body enough to awaken to. Moyers really covers both wheels though this
talk definitely emphasizes big problems with the American economic wheel.

11-11-06 - A Topic in the Air but One That Political Candidates Declined to Touch:
Torture of Prisoners
NYTimes - in which PETER STEINFELS suggests "Let all interrogations be
at the founding conference, in Princeton last January, of the National
Religious Campaign Against Torture. Prominent religious leaders,
Protestant (both mainline and evangelical), Roman Catholic, Eastern
Orthodox, Jewish and Muslim, issued a statement, "Torture Is a Moral
"Torture violates the basic dignity of the human person that all
religions, in their highest ideals, hold dear. It degrades everyone
involved — policy makers, perpetrators and victims. It contradicts our
nation's most cherished values. Any policies that permit torture and
inhumane treatment are shocking and morally intolerable. Nothing less is
at stake in the torture abuse crisis than the soul of our nation. What
does it signify if torture is condemned in word but allowed in deed? Let
America abolish torture now — without exceptions."

This image from here.
Today President Bush signed into law the
Military Commissions Act of 2006 which, it looks like to me, gives him
absolute dictatorial power for no good reason. Why didn't the democrats
who opposed this filibuster?
This is a What did you do? moment.
There might be a lot of them with this government but this is to me the
what Keith Olbermann and his guest Jonathon Turley of George Washington
had to say on MSNBC Countdown,
the Day Habeas Corpus Died. The video link is Countdown-King
For one thing, Turley said, "The Congress just gave the president despotic
powers and you could hear the yawn across the country." He said George
Bush has just been made an absolute ruler. He said that Madison said that
the constitution provided protections so strong that we could be ruled by
devils and we would be protected. Those protections have been eliminated.
The President or the Secretary of Defense (or anyone they designate) can now arrest anyone in the world or the US whom he deems
an enemy combatant or even someone who has given "material support" to the
enemy, and this person can just disappear with no charges and no rights.
And they can be tortured because the president now defines what that is.
I could put up lots of other links. Look into it. I urge you to do what
you can - write, call your Senator and Representative and newspaper.
Protest. Don't stop. Or, leave the country. Hmm. That sounds like a good
alternative. Good luck. - DC

SIGN THE AMERICA I BELIEVE IN PLEDGE
As for those who've planned this war (since the 90s), lied, cajoled,
persuaded to war, insisted on war, the war-monger President, VP, Sec. of
Defense, of State, the advisors who pushed it - those of us at cuke.com
suggest a compassionate Christian, Buddhist, Islamic, general
spiritual/religious or humanistic approach to their punishment, their
consequences, their atonement:
not lock them up. First, stop them from spreading their violence and then,
let them do community service. We suggest they work in veteran's hospitals
and serve the wounded - until they are too old or infirm to do so - and
then they too will be nursed and attended to until their days on this
planet are no more.
May all those who supported this war and who profited from it take care of
the wounded veterans and civilians from every country until the last one

Wolf's anarchist son is having trouble with the fascists who run this

He is a journalist. He took footage of protests over a G-8 Summit and
now the FBI and the Justice Department and a grand jury are threatening
him with jail is he doesn't hand his film over. Check it all out on his

Bush in St Helena, Napa County, CA where he came to relax for a day. His
motorcade was late and took a back road so only a few people were on hand
to chant something about impeaching him has he arrived at a distance.
The photos feature Andrew Atkeison and wife Rosie in terrific masks they
made of George and Laura Bush. The gals we ran into are in the first
photo. Jessica Parker is on the one on the left and her friend Christina
on the right (of the left photo). On the right of

resign today or be impeached and then, along with their supporters

While you're at it,
call your senators (can't get through on the 16th - message boxes

extremist Samuel Alioto be confirmed as the next supreme court justice -
unless you want fertile women to be incubators for the state, unlimited
power for the president, the union of fundamentalist Christian church and
state, and big government and corporate interests always to trump those of
individuals. On the other hand, if you want to read a more pro Alioto
point of view by Deepak Chopra, then
go to this link. Anyway, this is probably hopeless too. Spineless
Deepak emphasizes abortion rights too much in the article on Alioto.
There's that but there are also other issues of great importance such as
presidential power, favoring big government and business over the
individual, separation of church and state, and just the general march to
fascism. I think that concentrating too much on the abortion issue weakens
the case against Alioto. But he'll probably get in so I hope this
optimistic view of him proves to be true.

emphasize one point that I think should be stressed by those wishing to
check the abuse of power by the executive branch of the US government.
That message is this:
The Bush Administration is inept at
fighting the war on terror. They are increasing the danger while
plundering the commons. They should be impeached primarily for how
poorly they are defending the country, for putting Americans in many
types of danger. - DC

of the World Suicide Club (the largest most powerful organization on
earth, working toward the elimination of all higher forms of life through
global thermonuclear war) which I spent a lot of time on in 1980 when I
was working on the Nuclear Freeze movement. The WSC, of course, strongly
opposed the Nuclear Freeze, but just sort of laughed at our efforts to
save the world. Their motto "All at once," and slogan, "It's going to
happen," (or was that vice-versa?) reveal the smugness of this nefarious
outfit. Seems they've been working hard since then and now have the world in their
group I mean grip. I don't know how much further this can go these busy and broke
days, but take a look at one of the WSC's logos or was this the decal? In
the old days there was a newsletter, bumper sticker, decal, a record,
t-shirts, and a membership package. Now there's just this page to go to. But don't
be fooled. The WSC has confidence that the human race just can't help but
destroy itself and a great deal of other life as well. Go to
