Respected comrade targeted by racist police.
An injury to one is an injury to all. Alton has been threatened in his car by police before. He called the police and made it clear that he would not let them murder him. Being commited to defending yourself is distinctly different from "threatening to attack a police officer." That the officers in question knew of his statement, made at a previous profiling incident, is further evidence of a criminal conspiracy among racist police.

Is Oregon ready to lead on industrial hemp?
The Oregon legislature has an opportunity to lead the nation by passing S.B. 294, a bill which would allow Oregon farmers to grow industrial hemp. The article argues that since the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has declared the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency ban on industrial hemp illegal, then Oregon legislators should pass S.B. 294 so Oregon is in compliance with Federal court findings. Call your legislator today!

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.
