"to me it's at it's most basic a "free speech" issue, and a healthy barometer of whether we have it or not."

Cool man,

I know you got my back and support the rights of guys like us to do this, to me it's at it's most basic a "free speech" issue, and a healthy barometer of whether we have it or not.

It's just when it comes to the particulars (e.g. "Sure Bush is bad but 9/11 wasn't faked") then I'm just going to say my peace like anyone else making a correction. I'd do the same with some misconceptions about Hinduism like you would about [--]ism, but beyond that I'm afraid what I "believe" (I'd say "know") means we're in a crapload of trouble.

I think the Bombay bombings were faked just now so they could ramp up their police state policies - as is happening worldwide with bombing and subsequent "free speech zones" and such. I think a lot of the violence in T-Dot is faked too, as my producer and street sources tell me: why would they want the heat? How come cats real deep in the game don't know what's going on? Sure there's a few true psycho's with a death-wish out there, but it's too easy to lay the stereotype on "young black men".

I've gotta say I saw the "soccer hooliganism" in Germany, and when black people act like that - they shoot 'em.

(Google Video and watch "TerrorStorm" if you want, it's got a great academic history of the MI-5/CIA faking terror for "Operation Ajax" in Iran in 1954 to overthrow the democratically elected and pro-West leader Mossadeq after he nationalized their oil fields and upset British Petroleum. They celebrated their wildly successful venture by repeating the same tactic in dozens of countries, and with "Operation Northwoods" they were going to do it in the U.S. too to get the public to support a war with Cuba. All this was independently confirmed by a poli-sci PhD to a friend at his party on the weekend, and I confirmed it as well by doing a search at cia.gov to prove it to another buddy too...)

As for what turns people "on" and "off", well, that's a matter of taste I suppose.

I mean, we can scream and yell about tabloid-y stuff all the time ("I hate Paris Hilton!", or have heated arguments about sports ("We wuz robbed!"), but as soon as I yell "Torturers!" when I'm discussing torturers then I'm a bad guy - which I disagree with.

Personally I think the mainsteam media is softening us by hiding or "normalizing" a lot of horrible and more importantly rapidly worsening stuff, and so cries of "This is bad!" by activists everywhere are turning people off who're not used to "bad" things being called "bad" anymore. The news is also depressingly fatalistic by lacking in any substance, context, or hope by not showing anybody trying to make a difference - and ignoring literally millions of options, that people are turning off and forgetting to check back, or failing look for alternative and more fulfilling news sources.

But going all "Oprah" ain't gonna fix things either... so who knows what works?

We had Bob (both Dylan and Marley) and a bunch of others and we still didn't learn sh-t, so I'm stealing from everybody and making my own lane...

Besides: Gandhi was a wimp, Martin was a wimp, Malcolm was crazy, and on and on and on...

Later, they were cool...

And Denis Leary is similar to Dennis Miller - a right wing hack. He's a pro-war pro-torture pro-America fool who can still be smart and funny, but make no mistake - his "I can make a nickel bashing Bush too - I just don't feel like it!" shpiel is just a right-wing "talking point" to further discredit us activists, and to get people to avoid looking at just how badly Bush is sodomizing the world and our civil rights. Of course, we're just all out to make a buck, sure. With no mass media support, no talk shows, no mainstream radio and no Oprah, this is the surefire way to do it...

Alex Jones is crazy... and later, if we "win" (and that means the rest of us too), then he'll be recognized for what he is: the guy who pushed "9/11 was an inside job meant to scare the hell out of us and speed up the creation of a global police state!" further than anyone else, and thus a "hero".

I don't agree with 100% of what he says, but I don't agree 100% with anyone, including G-d, my family, my friends, or anyone else who's hella smart. I think he's on to something and works incredibly hard for relatively little recognition despite numerous credible politicians (Congressman Ron Paul, etc.), journalists (Greg Palast, etc.), activists (Cindy Sheehan, etc.), ex-military and intelligence (Ray McGovern, etc.) and hundreds of others supporting him. Either way, it's important enough for me to tell people to pay attention (no really) and then make up their own minds...

There's "rabid" and there's "real", and when I'm getting appropriately "rabid" you'd best believe that I believe it's for a "real" reason.

It's cool, this album is breaking down the hardcore specifics for those strapped on time (e.g. "fake terror"), and I'm condensing 2 week reads, 2 hour movies, and 2000 word blogs into 3 minute songs. It's meant to change your life, but not everything works on everybody, so I'm cool with just moving cats along a little bit at a time until it really looks like we'll lose everything... then I gotta bizz-ounce.

Good luck with the prep meng, I know it's a hella big deal and you'll make sure we have a hella good time. And don't worry about "Vij" anyway, he went to India a couple of years ago, remember? He's chillin' eatin' dosa's and watching "The Mahabarata: Special Edition" on a burned DVD somewhere while getting fat on a couch, but don't worry, he'll be back to play with the kiddies in a minit... ;)

Bombay train blasts described as bombings

By RAMOLA TALWAR BADAM, Associated Press Writer

BOMBAY, India - Seven explosions rocked Bombay's commuter rail network during Tuesday evening rush hour, killing as many as 100 people, police said. India's major cities were put on high alert after the blasts, which an Indian official said were caused by bombings.

There was chaos throughout Bombay's crowded rail network following the explosions, and authorities struggled to determine how many people had been killed and injured.

Bombay Police Chief A.N. Roy said on Indian television that an estimated 100 people were killed and more than 250 were injured.

"We are busy in the rescue operation. Our first priority is to rescue the injured people," he said. However, heavy monsoon downpours were hampering the effort.

Police were also reportedly carrying out raids across the country following the explosions, presumably in search of suspects. One television report said a suspect was in custody.

A senior Bombay police official, P.S. Pasricha, said the explosions were part of a well-coordinated attack. The country's home minister told Indian television that authorities had information that an attack was coming but did not know the time or place.

Witnesses reported seeing body parts strewn about stations, and Indian television news channels broadcast footage of bystanders carrying victims to ambulances and searching through the wreckage for survivors and bodies. Some of the injured were seen frantically dialing their cell phones.

The force of the blasts ripped doors and windows off carriages, and luggage and debris were strewn about, splattered with blood. Survivors were seen clutching bloody bandages to their heads and faces. Some were able to get up and walk from the station on their own.

Pranay Prabhakar, the spokesman for the Western Railway, confirmed that seven blasts had taken place. He said all trains had been suspended in Bombay, and he appealed to the public to stay away from the train stations of the city of 16 million, India's financial and commercial center and principal port on the Arabian sea.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the blasts came in quick succession — a common tactic employed by Kashmiri militants that have repeatedly targeted India's cities.

The first explosion hit the train at a railway station in the northwestern suburb of Khar, said a police officer who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.

India's CNN-IBN television news, which had a reporter traveling on the train, said the blast took place in a first-class car as the train was moving, ripping through the compartment and killing more than a dozen people

The Press Trust of India, citing railway officials, said all the blasts had hit first-class cars.

All of India's major cities were reportedly on high alert following the attacks, which came hours after a series of grenade attacks by Islamic extremists killed eight people in the main city of India's part of Kashmir.

Kashmir was divided between India and Pakistan in war after they gained independence from Britain in 1947, and they fought another full-scale conflict over the region in 1965.

Dozens of militant groups have been fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, demanding the mostly Muslim region's independence, or its merger with Pakistan.

India accuses Pakistan of aiding the militants, who run training camps on Pakistan's of Kashmir. Pakistan denies the charge.

After coming close to fighting a fourth war in 2002, Pakistan and India embarked on a peace process aimed at resolving their differences, including their conflicting claims to all of Jammu-Kashmir.

P.P.S. Check this out too while you still can!

Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most. If the public doesn't speak up now, our elected officials will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign.
