Beyond the unsurprising endorsements, this paper can’t even explain the ballot measures correctly in one sentence (Measure A), I guess this is a sign of the current state of the media...

So how long does anyone think Walter's bookmark will stay erased?

Will he make it to November?

He'll be back, he's hooked.

On top of that, the Daily is no longer the place it used to be so he won't be getting his fix there.

See you soon, Walter.

That explains why those who oppose your chosen candidates get no significant coverage on their views. Do readers know that Anna Eshoo voted for the bailout? Do they know her position on stolen elections, our trashed rights, the expansion of the National Security State? Do they know she endorsed the bogus 9/11 Commission's recommendations, and won't touch impeachment? Congress, as a whole, has failed to exercise oversight over a criminal regime that has launched illegal wars under false pretenses, institutionalised torture, constructed a police state apparatus that threatens all of us, orchestrated the biggest financial crime in history.

I must admit that health issues, a weekly radio show, organizing events for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, kept me from serious campaigning until most recently, but I am the Green Party Candidate for Congress (again) in District 14. We are launching TV ads, today that say-

On 9/11, three skyscrapers were felled by two planes, World Trade Center 7, the Patriot Act, the financial crash, the bailout, all share characteristics of controlled demolitions, criminal fraud, and treason. We the people, need the courage to seek and speak the truth. We need to investigate the big lies. We need to arrest, impeach the terrorists. We need to defend our Constitution, our rights, our lives. I am Carol Brouillet, Green Party Candidate for Congress and I approve this message. Vote Green for truth, peace and justice.

Before 9/11, I was working on monetary reform and I have also written a much longer paper on the current crisis- Evolution of the Apocalypse- Empire's Demise- Human Renaissance. While abolishing war, working for peace and justice, global economics is my passion, I don't think Eshoo shares my concerns.

Give it a rest, Carol. You have no chance whatsoever to replace our excellent rep, Anna eshoo.
