Clean that Smear


Time to break out the cleaning products and get to work, the Nazi Smear Campaign against Olympia is in progress.

How to deal with a smear?

  • Identify it  ("Yep, that's a smear, right there.")
  • Don't let it stick  (The NSM is practicing the art of "keep throwing the smear over and over again until it sticks" - don't let them get away with it.)
  • Wash, rinse, repeat  (Truth, civility, and cooperation all work wonders.)
  • Prevent further mess  (Keep your mind independent and always check directly with the person targeted before assuming anything.)

Triple Trouble Tour to support Oly Postal Workers


The Triple Trouble Tour

...featuring hell-raising singer Anne Feeney, satirical sharp-shooter Dave Lippman, and singing C.I.A. agent George Shrub

WHEN: Friday, June 30th, 7:30 pm


COST: $10 general, $5 low income

WHY: Presented by Olympia Local, American Postal Workers Union, to kick-off the “Keep the Mail in Olympia!” letter-writing campaign to the Postal Rate Commission. For more info: http://www.lunewsviews.com/Olympia 

DESCRIPTION:

 
The Triple Trouble Tour, a fair and balanced brew of satire and songs to stir the soul, features these unbalanced performers:
 
Anne Feeney has lived her life on the frontlines, comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable with songs like “Have You Been to Jail for Justice?”
 
Dave Lippman is fired up about weapons of mass distraction, SUVs, and wars to defend SUVs. Lippman has just filed suit in Miami against the FBI and Miami Police for violation of his civil liberties at the Free Trade Area of the Americas demonstrations in 2003. See http://davelippman.com/suit.html

The world’s only known singing CIA agent, George Shrub, will be provided equal time to present the hidden charms of torture, conquest and lies.

"Lippman is a national treasure," --  L.A. Herald-Examiner. "Viciously funny" -- The Guardian.

"Anne Feeney is the best labor singer in North America..." -- Utah Phillips

grrlcott meeting notes

quick notes while my brain is still fresh...these are exceptionally rough -- anyone else who was there, pls. comment!

issue is that Ralph's pharmacy (at my around-the-corner grocery store) won't stock Plan B. plan is to picket, to organize a boycott, at least thru the month of July. with pledges. I'll be setting up the website. (but of course)

picketing will start June 28-30. we'll have a booth at the unity in the community (anti-nazi) event on July 2, and then picketing again that evening. (note: give away condoms at protest?)

also, organizers (planboly@hotmail.com) are looking for volunteers to make complaints to the pharmacy board (?) because of legal implications.

everybody is to contact everybody they know about it.

Broho's boppin'

Calling the caiman host. No Tune Stranglers tonight, but good tunes, nonetheless. See you down here.

Looking for Olympia beer Collectibles

I am looking for new places to find Olympia beer collectibles. It seems like it just keeps getting harder to find those great Oly beer collectibles. I found a great place in the Homespun antique mall in tumwater across from Costco, olyitsthewater.com Does anyone no any other stores with a good selection of Olympia beer stuff?

About the Tacoma Sanctuary

I am currently volunteering at the First United Methodist Church in Tacoma, the church which has opened its doors to active duty soldiers and sailors who morally object to serving in the occupation of Iraq.

We just got a call from an acquaintance of the church, saying that right wing radio station KVI is talking about us. Apparently, KVI has reported that the military has posted two MPs to stand guard outside the church to make sure no soldiers enter.

If KVI has indeed reported this,

This is absolutely not the case. There are no MPs, or anyone, standing guard outside the church. It would be illegal for the military to post guards here, in a civilian setting. Soldiers break no laws by entering these doors. Even if they intend to accept the offer of sanctuary, they only break the law if and when they fail to report to duty. Furthermore, there are any number of reasons why an active duty soldier might enter the church that have nothing to do with the sanctuary. They may seek a marriage, or may request to speak to their pastor. Using such intimidationary tacitcs would be in violation of the guarantees to free speech and peaceful assembly that are inherent in the writing of the constitution.

This is a deliberate and underhanded lie on the part of KVI, intended to scare away people who are considering applying for sanctuary.

Celebration of Dictators

[via olyunity]

I was very impressed with your adopt a Nazi idea and it hit home again how humor is such a great tool for change.

So with that in mind I came up with this idea.  

I say we should call for a celebration of dictators! Come dressed as your choice of tyrant.

Like the day of the dead. Even have a prize for the best of show.

Caligula, Stalin, Mao, there will be plenty of little Hitler's showing up but not so many of the others listed below.

A Story to Think About (NAZIS!KKK!ACTION!)

i decided to post this because this account of events in the past in anywhere, usa has really changed my thinking towards how to approach and take action towards an invasion or threat against our safe little bubble. i don't want these bone heads to get any kids in our town mixed up in this kind of bs. anyway, here it is and it comes license free from crimethinc:

Fighting Terrorism Begins at Home
How and why we used direct action to thwart a fascist rally, and what we learned

report courtesy of the usual suspect

Our story begins at the polar opposite of liberation and self-determination: an utterly apolitical, consumerist macho hardcore show. A former bandmate of mine was on tour with a popular band in the genre, and I went to see them at the rock club where they were opening for another band that had a music video on MTV. There were four fights during their set alone.

Corporate personhood Initiative

Due to my own procrastination,I am only now processing an initiative to redefine 'person' as a human being only, and not a corporation.  As it is today, corporations are considered people, and are therefore given all the rights of citizens.  They have won lawsuits for false advertising under the first amendment right to free speech.  Blackwater and similar mercenary groups have arisen under the second amendment protections.  EPA and other inspections have been shirked by fourth amendment protections.  Testimony has been curtailed and lawsuits have been quashed under the fifth amendment.  Basically, corporations, get life liberty and the pursuit of happiness today.  If you don't want Walmart in your neighborhood, they will be able to defend themselves from a stance of discrimination.  For background on how the 14th amendment wound up applicable to Corporations, see my post somewhere under the Beating Walmart thread.
