Anyone know what Norman Lears position is on all of this ?

...should have said 'personal opinion'
Ralph Neas was a Republican that worked for Dave Durenburger (R)tm Mn, now it appears that he has done a lot of good in the past, but they are still "privatization (of government) lite", or "make the government so small you can drown it in the bathtub" people.
I never much cared for Durenburger, maybe that's why we're having a problem with PFAW, Brad ?

The MO fits IMO, the Con infiltrator, was put in charge in 2000 just before Florida (to shut up at the proper moment), he has stood up, but has he ever won a contest that was really important (for us), the needling Brads getting downthread...just think about it for a second.

Apparently this article had the "mark private" bug kick in? It's not appearing on the main page's list of articles.

What the hell is that about? Anybody else know anything about a bug in WordPress that sets stuff to PRIVATE somehow???
Also, the Milwaukee article had become "private" as well somehow. Yeesh. Both now un-privatized.
Thanks, Zap! Please feel free to email me if you notice that occurring again!

I've come to the conclusion, that we can not fix this problem anymore. (the EVM problem) It's the same old crap day after day, and I am sick of it. Nobody want's to really listen, and nobody sincerely cares, otherwise the EVM problem would be fixed long ago. I ain't saying quit, don't. But the pattern matching (at least in my opinion) is clear, that the two party dictatorial system we now have because of (EVM's) is out of control, there is no stopping it, the people can't do nothing. If the people try to bitch they'll get tossed in jail. Try to prove their shit can be cracked, get tossed in jail. Expose the secrets of the secret company get thrown in jail. Bitch at the politicians directly, get thrown in jail.
Alex Jones was right all along.
It's a police state now.
I wish for bad things to happen to these two party fakers, murderers, I hope the nastiest shit happens to them. I am sick of politicians and their fake ass crap.
They caused ALL this shit, not us. The war in Iraq ain't gonna stop, just like electronics in voting ain't gonna be removed. It just ain't. The people have LOST control of the government.
The people have lost control of the MEDIA. Your gonna hear about IMUS, Gay Marriage, Stem Cell, bla bla bla same shit different year.
PFAW, and Move On. (I think I still have a moveon mail list) I never trusted those organizations. And all this money to elect people, it's crap, you don't need money, you honest people, who don't talk shit. No money needed to support them, that money feeds the MEDIA. and more bullshit.
I've had it.

Brad, actually yeah: it's known, It's apparently completely random, it's been observed repeatedly on a global scale... and it's a mystery.
The wordpress people say they are working on it.

PS: It does not surprise me that someone or some group (Maybe the new US government's Cyberwar) would exploit your wordpress since they don't like what your saying.
I mean it's not like it's a fsckin coincidence eh?
The good thing is that your so public, that any change will be questioned. So a stupid tactic like tweeking on a thread is gonna be a blip. But watchout for bigger things, domain name control, hosting service, etc.
Keep a backup.
If your small like me you won't be missed.

I checked back a ways on Ralph, He seems to be OK
although what I don't like, it appears PFAW stands for 'People for the AIPACian way'
If PFAW is what it should be, they must denounce AIPAC for the way it is now (neo-con controlled), and do it loudly
both are approved by just one example
I'm not anti-Israel, I'm just tired of these cocky old testament reading fuckers thinking they can come over here and impose their (recent, made up) beliefs on us, and change our policies so we use OUR military (read tax dollars) for their political gain in the middle east genocide ?
Old Yimmy Carter has it right IMO.
And they still receive big-time aid from us besides ?, that is a crime in itself...

(i) has really never been on the right side of this issue;
(ii) consistently implements programs that put fund raising and media attention above the cause or the interests of its own constituency;
(iii) regularly plays the role of stooge for whoever will help elevate its perceived stature.
C'mon folks, it's Washington DC. Do you really think that these national non-profits give a damn about their constituencies or the issues that they pretend to do something about? It doesn't matter whether they pretend to be on the "left" or the "right" side of an issue, its about perceived power and self preservation.
Is it any wonder that PFAW would misconstrue Brad's position on the election issue? Of course not, PFAW regularly strong-arms collaborators, whether they are willing or not, in order to generate the perception that they are leading a national force of activists.
It's all B.S. PFAW doesn't give a damn about election reform, it is just a great issue by which to garner national attention and increase their subscribership.
Brad, sorry, you won't get anywhere. They will continue to show you as a supporter of THEIR position because it is in their interest to do so. Truth, honesty and integrity be damned.
It's time to wake up to the realities of politics today. The non-profits on the left, that you all hold so near and dear, regularly take you for a fool. They are no better than the politicians that they critique, except they pretend to be working on a higher moral ground. The left won't succeed until it abandons these fake centers of perceived power and organizes true grassroots campaigns, with a relatively flat hierarchy, that truly represent the people's interest.
Sorry to burst people's bubble. But anyone with any experience knows what the comment is all about.
