If it's news to Oregonians, it's NOT in The Oregonian

But, ace Oregonian reporter/opinion blogger Joe Rose has time to applaud one of his pro-TriMet, pro-light rail cronies and report on all of the latest light rail developments.

Surprisingly...a report showing light rail crime is up...that's just not like the Oregonian to have a negative story about light rail. Guess we gotta keep the quota in check so the "fair and balanced" claim can be maintained.

STATEMENT BY CHRIS DAY ON THE AGENDA FOR NEXT CHARTER MEETING

STATEMENT FROM CHRIS DAY ON THE NEXT MEETING:


I want to go on record here and make a very clear statement. Though I do not like the slanderous attacks Ellen Fox has been stating about me, I am not asking our membership to put a stop. All I am asking from our membership is to allow a Trial Committee to investigate the preferring of charges. The only thing our membership is being asked to do is two (2) things.

1. Is there warrant in the preferring of charge? Members need to ask themselves if the charges I am stating can be viewed as constitutional violations.
2. Is a single member’s constitutional right worth protecting? If we are only worried about the group as a whole and ignore the individuals with in that group then it will not take long for that group to fall apart.

If you say YES it appears there are some constitutional violations and if you say Yes all members are equal and deserve equal constitutional protection then allowing the preferring of charges would be the action that would assure that to happen.

To not allow this preferring of charges to be heard by a Trial Committee is making a clear statement that you either feel there are no constitution violations or it is too expensive to worry about each member’s constitutional rights.

So ATU757’s April Charter meeting is not about stopping Ellen Fox. It is about assuring that Sister Ellen Fox and Brother Christopher Day have an equal opportunity to present their case to a Trial Committee.

JUDGE TRIES TO REIGN IN FASCISTS IN WISCONSIN

A Wisconsin judge has blocked Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-union law from taking effect for the second time this month. On Tuesday, Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi reissued a temporary restraining order blocking the measure’s implementation. Sumi had earlier ruled Republican lawmakers were likely in violation of state open meeting laws when they pushed the legislation through. Despite the initial ruling, Republicans and some state officials have claimed the measure has taken effect. The state’s Supreme Court is expected to rule on whether the measure has become law and on whether it can be appealed.

The Collapse of Globalization

The last people who should be in charge of our food supply or our social and political life, not to mention the welfare of sick children, are corporate capitalists and Wall Street speculators. But none of this is going to change until we turn our backs on the Democratic Party, denounce the orthodoxies peddled in our universities and in the press by corporate apologists and construct our opposition to the corporate state from the ground up. It will not be easy. It will take time. And it will require us to accept the status of social and political pariahs, especially as the lunatic fringe of our political establishment steadily gains power. The corporate state has nothing to offer the left or the right but fear. It uses fear—fear of secular humanism or fear of Christian fascists—to turn the population into passive accomplices. As long as we remain afraid nothing will change.
