Bush Demo in Medford
Bush Demo in Medford Bush arrived on Airforce1to speak in Medford. Tickets to the "public" event were distributed only through the Republican Party of Oregon. Non-ticketholders were allowed in the parking lot. After the rally, Bush flew the government plane to an election fundraiser in Portland, and then California. He raised $2.6 million paid for by you and I. As we showed banners silently to the attendees coming out, we were subjected to plenty of verbal abuse from them. One man calmly said to me "You have no right to be here" as he went by (article 1)

COMMERCIAL LOGGING CAUSED WILDFIRES:Bush & Repub. Party "con job" The biggest ecological con job in years is being waged by the U.S. Republican party and their timber industry cronies. They are blaming the recent Western wildfires on environmentalists, and assuring the public that commercial logging will reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires. Below are three excellent rebuttals of these lies, which I will quote from and paraphrase here.
