A reverse-history brain-twister to provoke imagining what victims of US firepower must feel. A ubiquitous, war criminal media, steeped in latest techniques of psyop constantly programs a reverse-reality that justifies undeclared wars meant to maintain high profitability for predatory investments and a confidence in the exceptional goodness of Anglo-Saxon America that obviates compassion for the wars designated enemies.
If Vietnam had bombed the United States for fifteen years bringing death to some three million Americans in cities, towns and countryside across America during a brutal occupation by a half-million heavily armed Vietnamese soldiers, there is no way that the US would not have brought Vietnam before the International Court of Justice.

Brattleboro Citizens’ Breakfast
April 19, 2013
Gibson-Aiken Center – Brattleboro VT
Presenter: Moss Kahler
The Town of Brattleboro wanted to save money and found it could do so by boosting it’s recycling rate.
What are the options for the Police/Fire project? On the one hand the project can, without further ado, go forward with its $14.1 million dollar budget. This item alone will add 9-10 cents onto the tax rate next year (beginning July 2014). On the other hand, well, anything is possible. For instance: only doing the fire station now with an extra story or two, moving the town offices there and simply making some renovations to the Municipal Bldg to get police department functions out of the basement. Postpone West Bratt for now. This would dramatically cut immediate costs. However I put this one idea out only to open the door to brainstorming. There are probably ten thousand other possibilities.
We hope you’ll join us as don Francisco and doña Juana, elders of the Q’ero nation, will be in Brattleboro in early June, offering their energy medicine, ceremonies of manifestation and even an introduction to the ancient “wisdom teachings” of the Andes.
The Q’ero — don Francisco’s and doña Juana’s people, are said to be the last direct descendants of the Inca. They historically were respected as the keepers of the knowledge, and held a place of honor at traditional gatherings and festivals. After the Spanish conquest, they remained invisible, living in small villages as high as 16,000
feet above sea level. To this day, the Q’ero live without electricity, plumbing, automobiles or even bicycles. Here they have kept alive their relationship with the spirits of the land, and practice a heart-based way of relating to the world.
Does anybody have a shrub recommendation for us?
Here’s what we need:
a shrub/bush that will be about 6′-8′ and dense (a good natural screen) and tough and/or resilient to having snow sliding off a roof onto it.
We’ve considered and rejected privet, beauty bush and forsythia.
rash of dog-bite incidents in Putney, this weeks’ SeVEDS and sidewalk
upgrade meetings, the library’s new plans for lecture-by-google-hangout,
the plunge for charity, and plenty more fill the roster for this
weekend’s jam-packed weekend edition.
