Burning Questions: Watered-down Answers

And what about No Timber?

Way Down Yonder...It's Big Timber v. Smaller Timber.  Yes?  And what about No Timber?  At this point anyone who's paying atttention (And most people are so broke they can't afford to pay attention...) knows that trees are worth more left standing.  Nevertheless,

Portland-based American Forest Resource Council, which supports larger logs in the sale, has filed an administrative protest against the auction being conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.   The local Southern Oregon Timber Industries Association, says the sale of smaller logs is what local mills need.  The bureau has limited potential bidders for the 6.75 million board feet to companies qualified by the Small Business Administration. The “thinning” project was designed to incorporate ideas of forest ecology professors.

 The protest by the council involves the sales process and other issues. It was addressed to John Raby, manager of the bureau's Butte Falls Resource Area. He said it wouldn't stop the auction. The Portland group could make a further appeal to a departmental board.

 BLM officials say the sale includes “forest restoration thinning” on 479 acres and is part of an “ecological forestry project” covering about 2,200 acres that could ultimately produce 20 million board feet,

“forest restoration thinning”?

“ecological forestry project”?

Get real.  A “managed forest” is a tree farm; a tree farm is a privatized forest…kswild.org/about-us

 

#@!%@^

The deal is cut funding for enforcement and all the environmental protection in cascadia won't save a single fish.  And do everything in utmost secrecy.  Even as it faces court mandates to make measurable progress in fish restoration, the Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to trim spending on wildlife programs due to a tight budget and higher than anticipated spending by the contractors who carry them out.

Bazillion Books for Kids is more than halfway to its goal of donating 1 million new and secondhand books during 2012 to low-income children in Oregon who might not otherwise have any books at home.Now the challenge is to teach them to read.  And then of course, it comes down to getting them to read these bazillion books.

Romney’s Time lines are showing:  Washington Post timeline: The events in Benghazi and the U.S. reaction

The timeline clearly shows that the statement from US Embassy Cairo criticized by the Romney campaign came four hours before crowds gathered at the embassy in Cairo, and ten hours before gunfire at the consulate in Bengazi. Romney's statement came six hours after the gunfire in Bengazi, and just after the first U.S. death was confirmed.

Poistcard from Benghazi

From Cairo to Bengazi, outraged  Islamists are letting the world’s biggest Bull in the world’s most brittle china shop that insulting other people’s religious tenets is a mistake.  America is so far from achieving anything that remotely resembles diplomacy as to render the term meaningless.  At one end of the spectrum we have war and torture; at the other we have ignorant, shambling, fart-joke antics.  The world is not laughing – nor is it running for cover.  With the American Empire waning and the Chinese economic star rising, it would behoove us to show a bit of respect for other traditions and cultures…if only on behalf of enlightened self-interest.  We simply cannot afford to continue galloping around the globe firing our six-guns and yukking it up.  The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three embassy staff were killed in an attack on the Benghazi consulate and a safe house refuge, stormed by Islamist gunmen blaming America for a film they said insulted the Prophet Mohammad.

 

The Oregon Trail...

The Republican Party office is in - where else? - Lake-O.  And as it was when Willie Sutton was asked, Q: 'Why do you rob banks?' A: 'Because that's where the money is.'...So Oregon Action takes out to Lake Oswego at 3 pm today yto present GOPpies with  their cheques for $160 thousand dollars.   Why that number? Because Mitt Romney and members of Congress recently voted to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest 2 percent--giving people who make over $1 million a year an average tax cut of $160,000--while raising taxes on 25 million working Americans.

Local Event Part of Nationwide Day of Action Demanding Elected Officials Denounce Their Vote to Extend Bush Tax Cuts for Richest 2% or Pay the Price in November

 What:        Protest against the Multnomah County Republicans as part of National Day of Action against Mitt Romney and members of Congress who recently voted to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest 2 percent--giving people who make over $1 million a year an average tax cut of $160,000--while raising taxes on 25 million working Americans.  To symbolize this vote, protesters will deliver to the Multnomah County Republicans a massive $160,000 check from Mitt Romney with his photo on it payable to “Millionaires” and hand out similar $160,000 checks to observers.

 Protesters also will unveil a hard-hitting web ad produced by the Americans for Tax Fairness Action Fund that illustrates with painful clarity the way in which some Members of Congress have doled out special tax breaks for their wealthiest supporters. “Did you know nearly every Republican in Congress recently voted to give millionaires an average tax break of $160,000 a year?  They also voted to raise taxes on 25 million working families! Help stop politician from the Republican Party from giving huge tax breaks to their millionaire donors, paid for by slashing priorities like Medicare and education. It’s time for the richest 2 percent to pay their fair share.  Find out more at: www.ChecksForMillionaires.com.”  Tax fairness is expected to be a major issue in the November election.

 Why:         The bill that the Republican s recently voted for, called the Hatch Amendment in the Senate  H.R. 8 in the House, would raise taxes on 25 million working families in order to help provide a $160,000 tax break to millionaires. Taxes would be raised by ending a tax credit that helps make college affordable (the American Opportunity Tax Credit) and ending improvements to the Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit. Ending the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2 percent would raise $1 trillion in revenues over 10 years, which could be used to protect middle-class priorities and reduce the deficit.

Happy Birthday Granny Aggie...

This is an excerpt from the Medford Mail Tribune:

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, Agnes Baker Pilgrim will turn 88. Grandma Aggie, as many know her, is the oldest living descendant of the Takelma people and serves as a Native American spiritual elder and indigenous stateswoman.

 She has been written about or videotaped for countless local stories. It's her likeness, along with an eagle and a bear, in "We Are Here," a 20-foot-tall wooden totem-like sculpture that greets visitors in downtown Ashland.

 But while she may be widely known in the region, few know that she struggles to pay her rent and bills each month. So friends and acquaintances have banded together to help her. "We started the Agnes Baker Pilgrim Fund," said Alice DiMicele.

 As September approached, there were no funds in the account, so DiMicele decided to create a "virtual birthday party" for Baker Pilgrim on Facebook as an event, to try to raise money for the elder for her birthday.

 The seventh of nine children, Baker Pilgrim was born on Sept. 11, 1924, in Logsdon, on a tribal allotment near the headwaters of Oregon's Siletz River. According to the biography on her website, www.agnesbakerpilgrim.org, she explored a variety of careers in her lifetime before following a more spiritual path in 1970.

 In her earlier years she worked as a bouncer at a nightclub, a barber in a jail, a scrub nurse at a hospital, raced stock cars and managed a restaurant, all of which no doubt prepared her for her role as mother of three sons and three daughters, having married three times in her life. She is now the real-life grandmother of 18, great-grandmother of 27 and great-great-grandmother of one.

 Baker Pilgrim was not available for comment as she was traveling to Pendleton to give offerings of berries and buffalo meat to prisoners in the state correctional facility there.

The Five Fingers of Death:

In his most comprehensive public comments yet on the US covert drone war, President Barack Obama has laid out the five rules he says the United States uses to target and kill alleged terrorists – including US citizens. The president has also warned of the need to avoid a 'slippery slope' when fighting terrorism, 'in which you end up bending rules, thinking that the ends always justify the means.'   Obama's comments were made in an on-camera interview with CNN's chief White House correspondent Jessica Yellin.

 1 'It has to be a target that is authorised by our laws.'

 2 'It has to be a threat that is serious and not speculative.'

 3 'It has to be a situation in which we can't capture the individual before they move forward on some sort of operational plot against the United States.'

 4 'We've got to make sure that in whatever operations we conduct, we are very careful about avoiding civilian casualties.'

5 'That while there is a legal justification for us to try and stop [American citizens] from carrying out plots… they are subject to the protections of the constitution and due process.'

The Bear Went Over the Mountain...

The Bark Out website features a photo of  the last sliver of old-growth near the lower Clackamas River that the BLM wants to cut down for a new logging road –  that’s why they call it a “logging” road, right?

Keeping an eye on the Mt. Hood is a balls-out, full-time, fair weather or foul endeavor.  It’s what Bark Out does.  Taking a break from the task up on the – where else? Clackamas River, Bark Out’s grassroots goddess, Meredith Cocks was surprised to discover that California Land Management (aka-Mt. Hood Recreation) is now charging people to park on the side of Hwy 224 to swim at the Big Eddy swimming hole.  Have a look at the website; it’s not too late to ‘liberate the ‘Hood’

Sweet Home - But Not Sweet School - Chicago

Yesterday The Chicago Teachers Union said it will strike at 12:01 a.m. on Monday,, if teachers do not get a new contract - no extensions, no retreat and no surrender.  If the teachers walk out this will be the biggest labor action in recent history. involving around 30,000 educator.

On Wednesday the union filed unfair labor practice charges against the Chicago school system .

The union filed complaints with the state labor board accusing the school district of violating state law by unilaterally imposing changes in teachers' working conditions - including new teacher evaluation procedures - while both parties are still at the bargaining table.

The union also charges that Chicago Public Schools, which has more than 400,000 students enrolled, is refusing to allow arbitration on some complaints and has intimidated teachers picketing at a school.

Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Becky Carroll said the district was disappointed, and called on the union to focus its energy on the contract talks.

'Education': Some Get The Street, Some Get The Wall

Narrowed curricula, teaching to the test and stagnant achievement – just a fraction of the No Child Left Behind legacy.  What has been left behind is a barren intellectual landscape, not a drop of learning, no spark of inspiration.  Policy makers on the inside, however, are popping the corks on the Good Stuff.  Because such is the architecture of  consumption-side culture.  Americans receive mind-numbing training in stalag-like conditions and are told they are getting an education.  The proof of which is that the experience set them back thousands of dollars, and a lifetime of indentured servitude. Sometimes what looks like a ‘Street’ is really a ‘Wall.’ A ‘Wall’ where the buck does indeed stop.

Harvey Wasserman: How the 2012 Election was Stolen

www.harveywasserman.com/harvey_wasserman/Home.html

I you want ot steal an election, choose a close one...because when 2 am rolls around and the numbers start  to slowly shift in your favor, no one is going to hoist a red flag.  That's parameter number one: No Hoist stops the Big Heist. The only red flags raised this time around are going to be the Republican victory banners.   Parameter number two: Never simply 'cover your tracks'; don't leave any from the get-go.  The technology available now in order of magnitude is far beyond that which put George W Bush over the top by way of tthe bottom.  Parameter number three: Limitless money.  The Koch Bros., Sheldon Adelstein, the list is one long Death March through the Boneyard of Left/Progressive ideas.

Odd isn't it that it was the Leftist/Progressive ideas and ideals that built the foundation of the America  over which these  Good Old Pricks wax nostalgic.

It took two stolen U.S. presidential elections and the prospect of another one coming up in 2012.
For years the Democratic Party and even much of the left press has reacted with scorn for those who've reported on it, but the imperial fraud that has utterly corrupted our electoral process seems finally to be dawning on a broadening core of the American electorate -- if it can still be called that.

"The shift is highlighted by three major developments:

1. The NAACP goes to the United Nations
In early December, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the largest civil rights organization in America, announced that it was petitioning the United Nations over the orchestrated GOP attack on black and Latino voters.

2. The Justice Department awakens
On Friday, December 23, 2011, the U.S. Justice Department called South Carolina's new voter ID law discriminatory. The finding was based in part on the fact that minorities were almost 20 percent more likely than whites to be without state-issued photo IDs required for voting. Unlike Ohio, South Carolina remains under the 1965 Voting Rights Act and requires federal pre-approval to any changes in voting laws that may harm minority voters.

Dangerous Anarchist?

 

The Committee Against Political Repression has organized a rally on behalf of political Cascadia’s latest cadre of actual and potential political prisoners, among them Leah-Lynn Plante pictured above.  Be afraid, America… Show up in front of the Federal Court House (1000 SW 3rd Ave) tomorrow, August 30th, 12:30 until 3:30.  Facing a grand jury takes courage; resisting a grand jury takes an individual beyond courage and into a lawless judicial ‘free fire zone’.    In a police state,  to stand in solidarity with grand jury resistors.   The rally starts at 12:30pm and will last until 3:30.

Four activists (Whom the police chose to identify as “anarchists”, the American police state’s latest, greatest monster in a box .) have already faced a grand jury and  been subpoenaed to testify against their comrades. Two of the subpoenaed live in Portland and have boldly refused to cooperate with the grand jury.  They are potentially facing jail time for speaking Truth to Power by refusing to speak anything to the grand jury jockeys.   If ever these recent events call for a show of solidarity it is tomorrow, August 30th at the federal courthouse.   The Committee Against Political Repression's website is an excellent source to go to    http://nopoliticalrepression.wordpress.com/

Organizations Fighting Grand Juries,

grandjuryresistance.org/resisting.html

Unlike a regular jury, which is used to determine guilt in a trial, a grand jury consists of 16 to 23 jurors who are not screened for bias. The purpose of the grand jury is not to determine guilt or innocence, but to decide whether there is probable cause to prosecute someone for a felony crime. The grand jury operates in secrecy and the normal rules of evidence do not apply. The prosecutor runs the proceedings and no judge is present. Defense lawyers are not allowed to be present in the grand jury room and cannot present evidence, but may be available outside the room to consult with witnesses. The prosecutor and the grand jury members may not reveal what occurred in the grand jury room and witnesses cannot obtain a transcript of their testimony.

My guest this morning, Alice Slater, knows the score on Iran.  There is virtually nothing - and I generally try to steer clear of generalizations of that magnificent calibre....but I make an exception here - nothing  American media has got right when it comes to Iran.  They are especially clumsy when it comes to translating dipllomatic statements, anything relating to goverrnment policy.  However, mirabile dictu! They never cease to churn out the more incendiary remarks made by assorted Mullahs...

Nothing you have heard about Iran is close to the truth.  Alice Slater has been to The Mountain.      Slater is the New York director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and is on the coordinating committee of Abolition 2000, a nuclear disarmament network.

This courtesy of the Associated Press at least demostrates where the US stands when it comes to Bull-in-the-china-shop diplomacy.

"Yesterday afternoon the the aircraft carrier John Stennis has left Bremerton, Wash., for another tour of duty in the Mideast.   Defense Secretary Leon Panetta spoke to the crew last Wednesday and thanked them for making a quick turnaround and returning to action four months earlier than expected.   The Stennis returned in March from a seven-month deployment that included missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.   Panetta says the Pentagon is keeping the Stennis and another carrier in the Persian Gulf to deal with any contingency that develops in the Middle East."

 

 

   "Significantly, an Associated Press article in the Washington Post headlined, 'Iran Opens Nonaligned Summit with Calls for Nuclear Arms Ban' reported that 'Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi opened the gathering by noting commitment to a previous goal from the nonaligned group, known as NAM, to remove the world’s nuclear arsenals within 13 years. "We believe that the timetable for ultimate removal of nuclear weapons by 2025, which was proposed by NAM, will only be realized if we follow it up decisively," he told delegates.'

They sprang this one on the citizenry at the eleventh hour: The Citizen Review Committee has a Work Group looking at Crowd   Control policies.  The Committee wants to hear from those unfortunate friends and neighbors who have been on the receiving end of the Portland Police  Department’s Crowd Control Techniques.  Have you seen them in action? You have? Then this is for you.   The meeting is Tuesday – as in today - from 6-8 at Miracles Club.   If you or someone you know would be willing to talk about your experiences to this all-volunteer group, you might want to get in touch with the Work Group chair, Rodney Paris. The CRC is somewhat ‘one-of-a-kind’ in that it’s  attached to but able to make policy recommendations independent of the "Independent" Police Review Division    The Crowd Control Work Group has only met three or four times but they've had ‘feedback’ regarding batons, horses, bicycles, "kettling," pepper spray, lack of identification, and other various issues.

Here are a couple of links:  www.portlandcopwatch.org/PPR33/ipr33.html

Comments

membership means more

your threat of quitting your membership gives me two options for analysis:

1) you gave money to Theresa via KBOO.

2) if Theresa died tomorrow, you'd give up your membership.

my interpretation

1) that's cool, man.  you support community-based radio based solely on your dedication to one weekly half-hour show. that demonstrates that Theresa's voice represents/intrigues you (and many, many others); however you don't feel represented by any one of the other 500 people who volunteer their time and energy in the 24/7 endevour, and you don't value the input (and miraculous existence!) of the other 5-10,000 members and ten times as many listeners; neither do you support the KBOO mission of including as many underrepresented voices as possible on the air, with natural turnover, schedule changes and opportunities as new people arrive.  Membership gives you the power to affect the decision-making, which is why you gave money to Theresa via KBOO; and, by golly, you will do everything in your power to keep her on the air, and you want the KBOO website visitors to know how you feel when they read the comments.  You'd even like them to join you in your fight.

2) wow.

my opinion

Personally, Theresa's show is one of my  favourites and there are plenty of shows that I not only don't like or don't listen to, but also complain about out loud.  It's my radio station, and, like my family, I will not be quiet when they need to shape up or ship out.

writing inflammatory statements on the webpage will remain simply that: inflammatory statements with a reaction or two from trolls (see the 20 pages of Anonymous written about me because of the audio I submitted that Jenka edited), which, in the end, result in: NOTHING.  If you want to chat with others online, that's fine, but you should know that nothing said here is considered in the Committee meetings. It's just an informal public forum, not policy binding.

my advice

Instead of threatening us (volunteers, members, listeners and our very existence), why not use your valuable internet time to phrase it as, for example, a question to which one of us could easily respond:  "Have there been any changes to Theresa's show?  I noticed lately that it has been preemented or even cut.  It is my favourite show. [I fear Air Cascadia will take its place--not necessary but very telling that you chose Chris' page to write it--ed.]. "  You can copy the question to Theresa's email (though I know from experience she doesn't respond) and/or print it out and put it in her cubby hole at the station. And/or show up to the meetings.  And/or call Theresa during her show--she takes calls, you know.  Ask her if she'll train or mentor you to do the same kind of work she does.

p.s.  Air Cascadia basically is the AM News is Chris Andreae: i was engineering {i'm flattered that you liked it}and was very sad when it was cut--but that is the way of the station; we adhere and adapt to the ever-fluctuating needs of the larger community--but i watched, with great pleasure, as it morphed into Air Cascadia.  Though i adore Dennis Bernstein, 15 less minutes of his voice is no skin off my back. 

Highting!

The anchor news program

The anchor news program Democracy Now, conveiniently aired at 11 AM so that all could tune in was moved to 7 AM with a result that most if not all of the people who work nights won't be tuning in as they are still sleeping. Also missed the 40th anniversary bash as it was inconveinently held from 4 to 10 Pm, on a weekday, which would exclude anyone working swing from attending unless they took a day off. Why couldn't this have been held on a Saturday or Sunday?
Air Cascadia is a very rough and unpolished program that leaves me tuning to OPB or just turning it off.
The choppy, emergent voice of Cris Andreae is certainly a large part in that.
If it is true that Press Watch will be axed for this then it will be an easy decision to withhold future pledges from this listener.

What happened to Presswatch?

Is Air Cascadia taking over what Therisa has been doing? If so, I may give up my membership. First, the am news gets axed to accomodate Democracy Now, now is Presswatch going under the plow?
