Protests and Rabid Cops in NYC

From real-time internet reports, things seem to be getting out of hand in areas of New York City. Protestors are getting arrested left and right at the various demonstrations. What's really interesting is how most of the mainstream media seems to be ignoring it! Instead they focus on the convention and interview New Yorkers that are glad the republicans in town. Some of the Republican delegates going into Madison Square Garden (which looks like Fort Knox with all the tall concrete slabs and police trucks around it) were heard saying that they were "not aware of any protests" to the media. Amazing.

Apparently about 900 people have been arrested so far. The NYC Indy Media Center is doing a great job of posting live news updates, pictures and videos.

American Dictators

Alex Jones has put out a new film entitled "American Dictactors". What a piece of work. Perhaps his best film yet.
In a dictatorship there is no choice, the elections are controlled, the police are the military, fear equals control, speech is suppressed, the economy is looted, the people are slaves.

“We don’t know the future but we’ve studied human history and regardless of who wins the November election in 2004 the new world order wins.” --Alex Jones
It's out on VHS now with a DVD version on the way. If you'd like to watch it right now, sign up for prisonplanet.tv and watch the entire thing there in Windows Media format (broadband & 56k versions available). A free 20 minute preview is also available on the site.

Mr. Jones is good about letting people copy his films for free, so maybe the entire thing will be available here for downloading in the future.

Yet Another Blog

It seems like everyone has a blog these days. I put off getting one since a) I didn't think I needed it and b) the technology wasn't there at the time to let you really customize the ones on the free services. Took a look again in August 2004, and surprise surprise, they've actually gotten better, a lot better.

I put up this site earlier this year and figured what the hell, with the advanced technology that that the Blogger service seems to have put together (great work), it would be a hell of a lot easier to update or convert it to a blog-based system (instead of raw HTML coding in Dreamweaver). Therefore, this blog is #503,053,231 on the internet. Welcome!
