Those pinko scum cheese-munching surrender monkeys over at the ever-excellent adbusters.org
have started a 'Boycott Brand America' pledge. Against global arrogance? Against 'marketing'? Against war? Want to see public protest? Want to see action against oil, fast food, sweatshop labour, the media and more? Sign it
. Tell your friends
. One question, though: how do Americans themselves boycott America?

History repeats itself?
Lest we forget, constitutional qualms about the Pledge helped bring down Mike Dukakis 14 years ago ... will the Democrats, in an urge to avoid the same fate, let through Bush's slate of conservative nominees? How about a new Justice if Rehnquist retires?

Lawmakers blast pledge ruling...
Yes I know this thread was started yesterday but at over 130 posts and given the recent news
from lawmakers stating they would push for a constitutional amendment authorising the words "under God" if the Supreme Court did not smack down the 9th circuit courts decision I felt compelled to post again on this subject. Smack me down if you like...

pledges $10 million to a fund that will assist the families of the firefighters, police officers and emergency rescue personnel who perished while responding to the attack on the World Trade Center. Cisco Systems
has made gifts to key relief and support organizations serving the New York City and Washington D.C. areas, including a $6 million donation. Microsoft
is making a donation of $10 million in cash and technical services. Know of any other companies that are doing something similar?

Black leaders refuse to pledge allegiance to flag
is an example of a story that The Washington Times
blows way out of proportion. The term *black leaders* would imply that there are multitudes of African-American politicians/community leaders who are refusing to pledge allegiance to the flag. However, if you read the whole story, it turns out that only ONE person, an assembly-women from Tennessee is the focus of the whole story!
Of course, the Times
doesn't forget to remind the readers that she, and all who support her, are Democrats...

to be a part of the 2000 GLBT voter turnout. Straight, gay, bi...all
signatures are welcome. Remember that for evil to triumph all that is necessary is for good men to do nothing.
And take to heart the words of Martin Niemoeller: "In Germany they came first for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."
