Words and Poetics -  a gathering of words, stories, writings, some political, and some just an attempt at being poetic.

Selected Articles and Essays:

The Democratic Party goes on the Yellow Brick Road (again) - if they only had a heart, a brain, and a little courage.

Not One More! - Not one more unnecessary death in Iraq, not one more war, not one more injustice perpetrated by our government and corporations. Stand up and be counted. Demand that your elected officials stand up and be counted. End the occupation, US out of Iraq. Take the Pledge for Peace.

Dis-civil Obedience - If you are obedient to a government that is acting in a way that is not beneficial to society (civilization), you are practicing dis-civil obedience (by Attila Gyenis).

Words Have Meaning - People have a responsibility to say what they mean, and mean what they say. To accomplish this, words cannot be allowed to change their meaning midstream. Are we going to let Bush's lies go unchallenged?

Don't Fear Nader - Fear the end of basic Democratic Principles brought to you courtesy of the Democratic Party Leadership

Life Is Beautiful -  A look at the liberation of Iraq
