Racist Anti-Immigrant Measure 190 to Get its Day in Court Friday: Support Requested
Last November, sadly, Columbia County voters quietly passed measure 190. While the measure was largely misunderstood and not discussed much, it's one of the most sweeping pieces of anti-immigrant racism to crop up in recent memory. And this Friday, it goes to court.

Please join me there.

Sam Adams Under Fire: Stand for A Member of Our Community
I understand Sam was under fire again this morning, as clean-pressed "good citizens" came before the city council to call for his resignation. They were asked to wait their turn, as today's business was not about Sam's private sex life. However, they will be back. Next week, they plan to sign up to speak their redundant piece.

A Visit to Out to Pasture Farm Sanctuary
Shy Pig One of the greatest sources of suffering and oppression on this earth is hidden behind the walls of factory farms. More than 45 *BILLION* animals are killed for food by humans every single year worldwide, and most of those lived their entire, short lives on factory farms. Many of them never saw the light of day. And many of them died for nothing, as their flesh is often wasted in this gluttonous land of plenty. This is a holocaust of unimaginable magnitude, being carried out each and every day.

We Can Save Thousands of Animals and Hundreds of Humans with Simple Road Tunnels
If you spend any time on the roads, you are familiar with the sad sight of the carcasses of raccoons, opossums, deer, coyotes, foxes, domestic cats and dogs, and many other animals littering the roadsides. The real toll is actually much greater than what you see: Most of the carcasses are removed by government workers soon after they are killed, before you even see them. If they were not removed, they would soon stack up like cord wood on the shoulders of every roadway in the country. In addition, hundreds of people are killed each year along US highways in collisions with wildlife. I've always thought there had to be a better way. And as it turns out, there is.

Murdering Cop William Bergin to be Arraigned Tomorrow
Notorious murder-cop William Bergin is to be arraigned (again) at the Clackamas County Courthouse in Oregon City tomorrow. As you will likely recall, Bergin and his accomplice Deputy Dave Willard gunned down an unarmed, injured accident victim because they were scared that he might get blood on them. He's not being arraigned for that, alas, but he is being arraigned for official misconduct, theft, and whatever else. It might be fun to be there. He's really a scared little man, it seems, and truly frightened of people who read and post to this site. He reads it religiously, and gets all flustered about what people say about him here.

Dogs and the Concept of Fairness: Yet More Evidence of Morality of Animal Rights Position
Anyone who has ever lived with a dog, cat, or rat should be able to recognize that non-human animals are sentient beings capable of complex thought, emotions, and dreams, just like you or I. Yet for some reason, I have known people who continued to deny the sentience of their animal companions, even as they claimed to care about them. The reason, I think, is one of startling self absorption. Whatever the reason, though, this position of anthrocentrism makes it very convenient for those who want to be allowed to use others for their own ends. They can cut up animals in experiments, they can eat them, they can exploit them any way they want, because "they're just animals." Science, however, is beginning to disagree with that position.

In addition to legitimate concerns about dredging being destructive to the riparian estuary ecosystems, the highly explosive properties of supercooled natural gas present risks in known seismic areas of the Cascadian subduction zone.

The Governor Wants a Mileage Tax: Why You Should Care
If you've ever wondered why there never seems to be an end to road building/re-paving/repair projects, so have I. No matter how bad the economy gets, it seems there is *always* enough money laying around to tear up perfectly adequate streets and re-pave them, to close down perfectly useful on-ramps and re-vamp them, to block lanes and close roads in an orgy of machinery and men in orange vests. A lot of money is flowing through our highway and road projects, and one might reasonably ask why we make this such a priority at the same time we shave the last few cents off programs to help senior citizens and people with disabilities. Governor Kulongoski isn't asking such questions, though. Instead, he's proposing new ways to keep the money spigot flowing toward ODOT projects now that people are buying less gas. And boy, does he have a stupid idea now.

The corporate media has ignored the banners decrying police brutality and unaccountable authority, seizing instead on the idea that the unrest is the result of widespread unemployment and poor economic prospects for young Greeks. Thus prompted, many people—including some radicals—have focused on these issues as well.

Should we accept that the rage being vented in Greece is economic in origin, the implication is that it could be dispelled by economic solutions—and there are capitalist solutions for the crisis in no shorter supply than socialist ones.

Remember the Birds on this Snowy Solstice
If you're cold today, think how the birds feel. In the old times, there was always enough to feed the birds through the winter. There were bits of grain clinging to dried stalks, fruit still hanging on bare branches and laying in fermented heaps beneath the trees, seeds scattered across the ground waiting for the spring, nuts safely tucked into brush piles where they would have been stored since the high summer. But urban wastelands, big box parking lots, and rolling suburbia have turned the once verdant fields into a deceptively green, chem-lawned desert. Grasses have been cut short and never allowed to bear seed, gardens have been kept prim and cleaned up for the season. Wild lands have been reduced to cement and sparse, sterile, foundation plantings. If you still care about the wild beings, now is the time to take it into your own hands to help them find warmth and plenty on this Solstice. Blessed Be.
