-Rally- around the Concern Pole -Save- monies for - Pentagon Waste -
08 Apr 2010
Modified: 05:52:53 PM
Friday, April, 9, 2010 there was, or will have been a "rally" behind Kresge Auditorium in regards to concern about what some people value, one might be right in thinking many people in the Boston area and elsewhere value (and work to change others - especially those institutions uncritical of "preventive invasions") such institutions as libraries (www.bpl.org), things besides the oft-mentioned "roads & bridges;" what about walkways (of course for strollers, bikes, dogs, even cats....); did you know "about it", the 'rally." If so, how, and how could more know the next time there is a "rally."
Rally Around the Concern Pole -- needless to mention to some, the monies available to support the "free market," and much else, not in need of "saving;"
When it comes to defense, democracy is going to have to wait" (A. Bunker)
There is the concern that some have in knowing or even thinking that "tax revenues" are being used for a child's "school lunch" or such but some how it is often missed the monies used for "pentagon waste [for some, profits for others]."
[Thanks to "Edward" (WMFO) (don't know him well enough to be on first name basis!) for the following; hopefully, accurately quoted from Tuesday, 6 June 2010, when he was in for Dean (91.5 FM, 7-9:00 a.m. No U-Turn Radio - like the road signs as Martin Voelker was fond of saying.]
"One thing that Noam Chomsky mentioned [at talk 2 April 2010] .... later on this week... is student worker rally with the goal to be save libraries, [save] medical services, jobs and benefits... that's Friday April 9 at noon, behind Kresge Auditorium at the campus, the MIT campus."
That is, Friday, April 9, 2010 at noon "behind" Kresge Auditorium.
G/E can usually be more specific and add references to complement what was "heard" be it on radio, etc. such things maybe of interest to others, this is not a case of that:
Would have like to include "Stand up for Library'" sorts and others too,,,,
On Friday, April 9, 2010 at noon "behind" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kresge_Auditorium) Kresge Auditorium there is / (was, in the spirit of forward looking newswire history and a lot more) a "rally" of sorts, a campus-community show of concern about libraries [not bombs"], [people not bombs], and as limited in detail as this is, in part noted below.
If one wants to hear a recording in its "entirety" then I would say this is not the recording G/E would suggest, though qualifying that pronouncement by stating G/E values greatly what Edward Beuchert does on air (even had Hank in the mix once, at least once to these ears). (about one hour "in") --
[this URL not all rendered properly:]
Unlike those appearing to generally support by way of their propagation of various proprietary formats (referring to others and in part other forms of the media not WMFO but still critical of them, and expect, in a different sense more from them: WMFO makes prominent two audio players but does not mention: OGG
- nor go as far as even suggesting one: www.fsf.org/news/playogg.html -- "PLAYOGG"
G/E would suggest that Chuck Rosina - in a way akin to recalling "good morning" greeting by Martin Voelker, be more prominent on airwave-street-web - of course they are all connected or ought to be thought as such - to better reflect all his efforts over the years;
It was mentioned: FSRN
(http://www.fsrn.org/audio/headlines-tuesday-march-9-2010/6345) to those "picketing" the same "chain wage" 'shop' at Copley but as is often the norm the one person I spoke with did not know of www.labornotes.org, nor FSRN, www.boston.indymedia.org, etc....but now maybe s/he does!
(regarding Martin as of last heard at www.alternativeradio.org), WMFO (www.wmfo.org), followed by Hank Faunce...)
As for Chuck U. - ought integrate his recording efforts more so with individuals and groups, those that would likely support his efforts, non-monetary support can, and is beneficial too.

Moderator: Amy Goodman [www.democracynow.org) [when stating "all that and more" it seems someone at DN and anyone else could be more creative in a short phrase expressing, for instance, the obvious, surely, that there are different forms of 'the media', some not with a "profit over people" perspective.
[ Arundhati Roy asked the question that ought to be asked (and many others as well as questioning assumptions or at least noting them as such, those that one begins one's discourse from;
she rightly asks, paraphrasing: whereas some question life after death what of life after democracy?
Beyond "formal democracy" in the U.S. with its, when noted honestly, affect on others, not an agent only of noble intentions, sometimes going awry, or when things get deemed a "mistake."

G/E would have chose (www.afsc.org) American Friends Service Committee as the reference but it leaves out some of the likely ways to "integrate" beyond HTML links....

G/E does not generally refer to them, unless in a rightly critical way but here one did not have to await a "call" for someone to mention "what is called 'defense' " in a discussion on "Solutions For Bringing Down The National Debt."
Maybe former Senator Alan Simpson - taking him to be a "stalking horse" for everyone's children - when he referred to not being one for "taxes" but being a "stalking horse for my grandchildren" gave a bit more "permissible spectrum" here than what is at times mainly extended, as implied above, by what gets "in' from someone "calling" - all too often referred to as "caller" which maybe G/E takes too sensitive like "you our listeners" but by a "certain reading of history" instills G/E to be "sensitive" to anything close to one wanting, preferring, whatever it may be for more people to be "spectators" rather than "participants."
If memory serves this was mentioned during DN! closing but the DN! website ought to better integrate too.
Though recently mentioned www.fair.org but it is hardly the norm, it could be on www.democracynow.org website.
