WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

This thought now occurs to many of us who were disgusted with the election results on Tuesday. Feelings of anguish, helplessness, and depression grasp us. The thought of leaving the country now seems more appealing as worries about our future and what will happen to our freedom occupy our minds. But...

The World I Know

I wanted to describe the world But then I realized that the world is nothing more than The thoughts that my mind pulls in from it. But my mind is a scrambled pile of cells That is completely out of order From the past which is full of failed connections and Blown chances to become specifically compe...

Slave Revolt

I have been working since I’ve been a youngin’ That is thirty years and countin’ But I ain’t never had no money And my life ain’t gettin’ no better My black skin just keeps getting blacker My calloused hands just keep getting harder But my pains do not matter Because today I led a slave revolt.

"Don't you want to join us?" I was recently asked by an acquaintance when he ran across me alone after midnight in a coffeehouse that was already almost deserted. "No, I don't," I said. - Kafka

I just read Beautiful Losers about a month ago for the second time. Everything seemed much clearer the second time around. Some interesting things I noticed this time was that the lyrics to the Future are in part of the book. Is "Sail on, Sail on, O Mighty Ship of State" a reference to something? I ...

Thanks Liz, sure you can use the poem and you do not need to credit me because all the words have been used before, I just shuffled them in a certain order. Also thanks to you and Witty Owl for showing some compassion and open-mindedness on the News Forum. I don't know if you saw, but the US has jus...

I like this poem, and I do not usually like poems. I am also looking at your artwork now and it is quite good.

Angel

Fresh, green grass Encased in packed, clean earth. Walking with light steps Your feet made no impressions now Nor have since birth. With a past clean and A future more open than the sky. The vast array of glorious scenes That will be seen By your innocent eyes. Angel with such delicate features- As ...

I don't sympathize with Bin Laden, I simply understand how someone could do the things he does. I don't take either side in the Isreal-Palestine conflict. If other governments commit worse atrocities than the US, that still does not give the US the right to commit atrocities. The lethal impact of sa...

No, bee I don't think you have answered one question I have asked, but I will still respond to you. Kush, you would like to get some facts straight. Fact: bin Laden is not and never was a member of the Taliban. Fact: the relationship between America and the Taliban has been closer than the relations...

Bee, in that list of atrocities you gave, I don't know why you would think that I would be in support of any of these things. My point is that you should be offended by all violence, not just certain forms of violence. What does European history tell me? It tells me that there are very few people in...

I think most of you have missed my point. The point is that you have no right to judge a man. Especially us that live in powerful industrial countries. As the war machine is driven by the politicians and businessmen, it is fueled by the working class. Bee, why are you so quick to compare Osama to Hi...

Liz, this was actually a transcript of the tape that came out last week, so it's not that old. For those of you who are truly disgusted by bin Laden, I ask you are you also as disgusted by the deaths of over 2 million Iraqis, with over 1 million of these deaths being those of children under the age ...

You go into their countries, you kill their children, then one of them stands up and fights back and you call him a crazy devil. I do not agree with bin Laden that reciprocal treatment is fair, or that any violence can ever be justified, but I also don't think that bin Laden is a monster. The media ...
