What the Economic Crisis Means for Us and How to Defend Ourselves
Gloom and Doom-----The pillars of the U.S. capitalist economy are crumbling and falling all around us while the federal government frantically races from one crisis to another, throwing money at them as if throwing water on a fire. It could well turn out that the money represents only a few drops of water thrown on threatening flames that will soon billow into an out-of-control wildfire so that nothing President-elect Barak Obama has proposed will succeed in averting the disaster.

The Failure of The United States Federal Government
The United States Federal Government started destroying it's reputation decades ago. Property confiscation and forced development because of taxes is "the norm" in the United States. It does not matter how long the property has been owned or who owns it, if you do not pay the government for it's "new" taxable value, you will have it confiscated. I have watched as many people who have lived on their property for decades and even generations, have it stolen by the United States Federal Government.

Obama and the Unions
When Obama wins the presidency next week, a good deal of kudos should go to the labor unions that helped out, both financially and by countless worker volunteer hours of phone calls and door knocking. Some unions are bigger Obama-backers than others— SEIU's website is a virtual Obama billboard. Since millions of dollars in workers' dues money went into getting him elected, it's urgent to have an understanding of his labor policy, less we find ourselves forgotten and assaulted like we were under Bill Clinton.

Bill Clinton's Presidency is a necessary place to start when trying to understand Obama's approach to the unions. Many workers were rightfully skeptical of Clinton the moment he announced his intentions to run for President— he was Governor of a 'Right To Work' state and was notorious for siding with management on major labor disputes. Many unions refused to support him until he successfully secured the Democratic nomination, where he was mystically transformed into the "lesser of two evils".

Reportback from Deep Green Resistance
This October (2008) from the 24th through the 26th I had the pleasure of attending a convergence called "Deep Green Resistance" (DGR) just outside of Lincoln City, Oregon. Several previous DGRs have been held on the east coast and other locales.
In many respects, the works and theories of eco activist-turned-radical author (and Cascadian resident) Derrick Jensen have inspired these events, which are intended to accelerate the actuation of and preparedness for the collapse of civilization, as a means of halting current trends of environmental/biological disaster.

It’s The Money, Stupid!: Over $1 Billion Raised for Prez Race!
A White House Pic The candidates for the White House have raised over $1 billion in their quest to win the election on Nov. 4, 2008. The Dems' Sen. Barack Obama has racked in $639 million, while the GOP's nominee, John McCain, has taken in $360 million. The four other Third Party candidates for the presidency have brought in about $5.5 million. The only thing we know for sure is this: When big money contributions dominate the electoral process, the people lose!

Skillshare: Radical Botany #7 The Great Harvest
Wapato In the world of plants there is one time a year when all the elements conspire to bring on the harvest. At the time of harvest the plant is at its fullness for essential oils, fragrance, nutritional health and flavor. For most plants when the plant leaf, fruit, nut or root is mature... before the seed is formed, is when it is harvested by humans. There is only one way to know this. Study the plant. Then capture the plant in its prime.

The Greater Error: Voting for the Lesser Evil
As the presidential election nears, we can be assured of being bombarded — probably more than ever — with a hackneyed argument aimed at prodding increasingly resistant members of the working class to trudge to their local election booths and cast yet another vote for "the lesser evil." After all, if the working class collectively refuses to vote due to universal repulsion at the array of candidates, then the charade that the U.S. in fact represents a genuine democracy collapses. But as working people witness their economic position grow uncomfortably perilous, whether Democrats or Republicans are in power, their desire to participate in this sordid ritual declines proportionately.

The argument, which is usually peddled by Democrats, since they directly profit from it, proceeds like this: Yes, both Democrats and Republicans have their flaws, but surely a difference separates them. For example, one candidate might speak loudly in favor of universal health care while the other remains silent.

CCSO and Sandy PD: Another cover-up by the good old boys in blue
While I am grateful to have the local community newspapers because they have devoted more than just a few words to this issue as the Boregonian did, I must again take exception to the tone and lack of meaningful substance these articles nonetheless show.

A "voluminous," 500+ page report from the Clackamas County sheriff was released last Friday (October 17th) detailing "the sexual habits of a 14-year seasoned deputy who served the Mt. Hood Corridor communities." This is the report on the probe that led to Clackamas County Sheriff's Deputy Brandon Claggett resigning.

One article, the one I will critique here, states that the "report on that probe answered the questions that local residents have been asking..."

Sorry, but I beg to differ.

Take action to defeat Measure 64!
Dear friends,

The ballots hit our mailboxes this week and the votes are starting to roll in! Now is the time to spread the word far and wide about Bill Sizemore's latest series of attacks on working Oregonians. Here's some information about Bill Sizemore's poorly-worded Measure 64, which would have far-reaching, negative consequences for Oregon.

Many nonprofit groups that educate Oregonians on environmental, economic and social justice issues would no longer be allowed to accept donations from thousands of public employees through convenient payroll deduction - or from anyone at an event in a public building. Measure 64 would even stop public employees from supporting their own unions' advocacy efforts through payroll deduction.

The Vatican Political and religious authority is crumbling in a crisis of faith. The late Leonard Bernstein put those themes, and much more, in his concert triumph, "Mass." After eight years of Bush-Cheney, the priest/pedophile scandal, coupled with the costly Wall St. Bailout, the loss of trust in our institutions is rampant. If the people want real change, they are going to have to rely on themselves, and on each other to create, in unity, the world that they desire.
