Free Radio Olympia Changes Frequency to 98.5 FM on March 1
Free Radio Olympia is changing our frequency again. We are moving to 98.5 MHz on March 1, 2005. This is not the first time we have had to move, and it will probably not be the last. Current FCC licensing activity is poised to pack the cracks and crevices of Olympia's dial with translator signals, rebroadcasting other radio stations, often from out of town.

The paranoid style in American politics
I'm not the first to observe that Americans draw from a deep well of irrationality in their political proclivities and ideas. Richard Hofstadter referred to this as "the paranoid style in American politics" in his book of the same name. The phenomenon affects the political left as much as the right.

Howard Dean and the people of Portland vs. Richard Perle
My school had received tickets to the Dean, Perle debate. Seeing that I was the most politically involved in the school, they gave me free tickets. Walking down the street, I wasn't sure what to expect. As the crowd moved into the theatre friends were talking loudly to each other. The house lights dimmed and the debate was ready to start. Dean was welcomed with a standing ovation, while Perle was greeted with a pity clap. Perle opened talking about how making reactions before we know the facts is a good thing. Of course, that was not a cloud pleaser. It was either this speech or the next speech that the crowd became involved. People started commenting on Perle's speech. People were getting pretty pissed off as well as I was, but I do respect the ground that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. All of a sudden, a man burst out of the crowd, and threw what looked like were boulders from where I was sitting, at Perle. He missed both times.

Cooperative Pie
Have I mentioned that capitalism is a crock? Oh, yes, come to think of it, I suppose I have brought that up a time or two over the last eighteen or so years of broadcasting dissent. It's one of those topics that almost no one wants to hearafter all, isn't capitalism sort of inevitablehuman greed and all?

Lynne Stewart Live interview on KBOO
I hope people tune in to hear Lynne Stewart speak live tomorrow morning on KBOO at 7:30 am about the dangerous attacks on civil liberties being perpetrated by the current US government. Lynne is a high-profile, veteran lawyer who has taken cases defending some of the most politically controversial, unpopular defendants. Lynne has always been an uncompromising fighter for the rights of defendants to receive competent counsel, especially in politically charged cases. She has now been targetted for retaliation in a shocking way by the Justice Department in a case spearheaded by John Ashcroft himself. Lynne's recent conviction in this case, in which she was accused of violating administrative rules about what information or communications by prisoners are allowed to be released to the outside world, represents a deep and ominous blow to the future of civil liberties in the US.

Call In Day of Action Thursday-- Your Voice Counts!
This Thursday, February 17th, your voice counts! Brownstone Homes and WRG Design want to bulldoze a sustainability education center located inside Portland on seven acres surrounded by lush forest, just above a steelhead-bearing creek. Their plan to turn the land notched into Tryon Creek State Park into 23 high-impact condos faces massive environmental and engineering challenges. But the dollar signs are flashing in their eyes. They need to know just how much opposition there is in this city to such a foolish waste.

Huey Newton: Revolutionaries and the Black Panther Party
This is one man who did not, for any reason, hesitate to take direct action against the racist power structure. Yes he was human. I am not trying to mold a golden god here. But this history has been vulgarized and falsified into oblivion and the consequence of that is what we are choking on today. This man and a massive army of others opposed the things that we should hate and the things that are killing us. Let us explore and help unearth history, cleanse and liberate ourselves and take the next step toward true freedom for all. On October 15th, 1966, two brothers stood up and took the next step toward civil rights, social justice, survival and revolution.
