How to Destroy a Country and Get Off Scot-Free - by Linda Heard
"Think about it for a moment. The warmongers invaded, crushed and occupied a country that was no threat to anyone. They stood by as it was looted, exacerbated sectarianism, flattened entire towns, tortured untold numbers of innocents, brought in gum-chewing, tattooed foreign mercenaries and paid crony companies billions of dollars for mythical reconstruction projects."

Using the curriculum and certified instructors from the 100 year-old League of American Bicyclists, the five principles of safe cycling are applied to San Francisco?s streets.
This four-hour classroom course teaches the basics of safe and enjoyable cycling, including riding in traffic, necessary equipment, security, crash avoidance, and legal rights and responsibilities. Open to adults 14 and over.
Having bicycle is not required, but please bring your lunch or dinner. Note ? this is the "day 1" course for League of American Bicyclists' two day Bike Ed Road I certification.
The classes are free to the public, but you must register for the class to ensure that there is enough seating. Visit http://www.sfbike.org/?edu to register for the class.

Did BUSH kill King & JFK?
Slideshow: Sponsored by Veterans for Peace #69
On the anniversary of the Bay of Pigs
See the photos the media is hiding.
See the evidence the CIA does not want you to see.
How Obama, Clinton & Nader are part of the cover-up. FREE. Wheel chair accessible.
Hear Paul Kangas private investigator
& former guard for President Kennedy,
Veteran of the Bay of Pigs invastion
detail the bloody Pentagon deals.
Wed 6-9pm 4-23-08, 401VanNess & McAllister #215 Free.
You tube: Paul8kangas http://youtube.com
Bush, Sr. killed JFK because JFK saved Cuba from the CIA invasion.
Bush “stole” the ’64 & ‘68 elections, but Democrats never complain about that.
JFK ordered troops out of Vietnam. This caused the CIA to shoot JFK,
so they could invade Vietnam. http://members.tripod.com/paulkangas

We support a strike by the soldiers. Did Bush sr. Kill JFK? How does that effect the election 2008?
My name is Paul Kangas. I am the Vice President for Veteran for Peace.
It will take a strike by
front line GI's, as happened in Vietnam & during WWI to stop this war.
We need to reach out to young boys, age 9 & recruit them into the anti-war movement. I joined the peace movement when I was age 9.
Then I was drafted. In the Navy, at age 19 in 1961, I helped organize a strike against the Bay of Pigs. Thanks of President Kennedy, the invasion of Cuba was stopped. After than, I got orders to go to Vietnam in 1963. Again I refused to go to war. I was then sent to Iceland for a year of
punishment duty. Kennedy then ordered all US troops out of Vietnam, Executive Order 263. Bush then killed JFK.
There was a movie made about strikes by front line troops, in WWI, called Merry Christmas. Have you seen the movie? Most vets have seen the movie. It is quite powerful.
Meet Paul Kangas, on 4-23-08, Herbst Theater, Rm 215, 401 VanNess & McAllister, 6pm, slideshow on the Bay of Pigs, the JFK assassination & the 2008 election.
Hear Paul Thur 4-3-08, KPOO, 89 fm, 1pm on the King assassination & the 2008 election & why neither Obama nor Clinton can stop this war, unless them want to be assassinated.
We support a strike by the soldiers. Paul Kangas, You tube: paul8kangas
