Portlander account of DC inagurual
Washington DC January 20th 2005: My day began with the DAWN (D.C Antiwar Network) rally at Malcolm X park in downtown DC. We didn't allow single digit (with the wind chill) temperatures to keep us from expressing our outrage at the long litany of abuse and corruption by the Bush administration.

so, GUYS, how did you like the protest?
Do you want to know why I go to protests? It's the energy. I get the space to scream my head off, in a society that tells me to keep my mouth shut. So, I went to J20 prepared to blow off some steam. But something "odd" happened, I encountered so much sexism that I actually came away feeling angrier than I did going in.

How To Include The Poor in Community Events
It is not enough to say you would like more class diversity in whatever political group you affiliate with. The growth of the class chasm has gotten so precarious, that a reactive stance to classism is not enough. A proactive stance of class inclusion is required. Below are a few things that I think should always be done to try to include the widest range of economic classes, when it comes to organizing and participating in community events. "Community events" that constructively and effectively lock out the poor from participation are not really "community events," they are "exclusive" events. I think 5 things should always be in focus when organizing any event, if class diversity is truly desired. 1) The organizing meetings and events must take place on bus lines. 2) The organizing meetings must not take place at restaurants. 3) The organizing meetings and events must be kid-friendly or offer free childcare on premises. 4) There must be no membership fee to participate. 5) Charity may not be used as a way to skirt the first four rules.

Vaginas in Mythology, Art, and History
Much as breasts have become a market commodity, vaginas have suffered a similar fate. Girls, women, boys, and men, are given little to no empowering imagery, mythology or language within American culture, regarding vaginas and female genitals. The most common thing kids and adults hear about female genitals is they supposedly stink like rotten tuna fish, or leave trails like slugs. Additionally, those jokes about tuna and slugs are bantered about lightly by males and females alike. Women are taught their genitals are gross in American culture, yet we also know they are an economic commodity, which is confusing.

Seattle Central Community College Students Force Army Recruiters off Campus
Among countless counter-inaugural actions held nationwide on January 20, 2005, the feistiest one took place in Seattle. Look at the photograph of Seattle Central Community College students forcing Army recruiters off campus. Naturally, no national media carried this news except Yahoo! News. What makes this action especially promising? The class and race of the students who organized it. According to Andrew Goldstein's profile of Seattle Central students, "everyone at Seattle Central lives off campus, and 80% hold full-time or part-time jobs."

City FINALLY recommends firing cop who shots, but. . .
This story just hit the corporate wire (link posted below) but the jist of it is Chief Foxworth, the Porltand head cop, has recommended firing a nearly 20-year veteran of the PPB for unlawful use of deadly force. But there is a twist; nobody died (the three shots missed), and the chief is not mad that the cop shot at the suspect. Read on. . .

Mike Ruppert Blowhard Gatekeeper or Disinformation Agent?
In my opinion, Mike Ruppert is at best a blowhard gatekeeper who only cares that he is the ultimate mouthpiece of the alternative and Internet media, cashing in big time, or at worst, he is is a disinformation agent for one or more of our international alphabet soup intel agencies. When he first came to my attention, I bought his early 9/11 video.

United States of Apathy, Population = You.
A response to the protest that took place in Portland on January 20th, 2005. I suggest that there might be a group of people to blame for the rise right-wing politics in the United States. These people, I think, are ourselves. This is an opinion-based editorial piece. Rough and loaded language is present, but an intelligent point is made.

The Draft Is Coming
Here's a good editorial from a Vietnam veteran who exposes how Bush and Rumsfeld have messed up the Army. Either the US will have to leave Iraq within a year (ensuring that a civil war take place in Iraq) or they will be faced with a military which is broken. Most likely Bush will then be "forced" to reinstate the draft.
