PROTEST THE BOSTON BUSH FUNDRAISER
04 Mar 2004
Emperor Bush will have a $2000 per plate hog fest with bean town’s corporate swine at the Park Plaza Hotel on March 25, 2004. Times have not been made available. This protest has yet to be sanctioned by the City of Boston and is unlikely such a permit will be issued. The Park Plaza address is 64 Arlington Street, Boston, MA.

I don't believe you need a permit in Massachusetts.

And even if you did, why bother getting one? Plan and act but don't ask for permission.

You need a permit anywhere for three or more - Mass. isn't that liberal! Times have changed since the first revolution here, way back when. But there's gotta be a way around this for enterprising free speechers'... not to be missed!

Permits are complicated. For a moving picket, you don't need one, esspecially if it's about a labor dispute. For a demonstration that stays in one place, you often need one, at least for sound amplification. But given that, the truth is that demonstrations often happen without permits. I also know of cases where people haven't gotten permits but have let the police know what's happening, and the police have routed traffic accordingly. If there's a crowd of hundreds that wants to march, the Boston police are less likely than many other police forces to be assholes if there isn't a permit. Hopefully the feds won't pressure them to be assholes in anticipation of the coming convention.

I have heard on Pacifica radio that the Boston police themselves are planning to protest the Democratic Convention this Summer. It is a Union issue appearantly. They have been working without a contract for a long time. (I am sorry, I have no article link or more facts.)

Please publish time and place to meet...we need to get as many people as possible in place, before police have a chance to tell us we don't have a permit.

The 10 Commandments contain 297 words.
The Bill of Rights is stated in 463 words.
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address contains 266 words.
A recent federal directive to regulate the price of cabbage contains 26,911 words.

You read about all these terrorists--most of them came here legally, but they hung around on these expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years.
Now, compare that to Blockbuster: you're two days late with a video and those people are all over you. Let's put Blockbuster in charge of immigration.

Just wanted to drop in a note telling everyone how much I enjoyed the dinner last evening with President Bush.

Very happy to be able to donate $2,000 to a worthy cause.
Bush downplayed terror

Even as Richard Clarke was offering a moving apology to the families of 9/11 victims for failing to protect their loved ones, the first Bush administration official to do so, he was being publicly savaged by Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and White House spokesman Scott McClellan. Rice's attacks were particularly galling. From the safety of the White House -- she refuses to testify under oath before the commission, something Clarke has done for more than 15 hours -- Rice used classified and confidential material to throw bombs at Clarke.

The White House attacks have been snide, underhanded and contradictory. None has effectively refuted a single point that Clarke, a Republican, made in his testimony and in his new book, "Against All Enemies."

Clarke's points can be reduced to this: The Bush administration sat on its hands for eight months in 2001 while Al-Qaida prepared its devastating attack on the United States. Then after the attack, the administration moved immediately to prepare an invasion of Iraq, a country the United States knew was not involved. In carrying out that invasion, the Bush administration significantly increased the threat from terrorism while undermining the effort to combat it.

Explosive charges, yes, but Clarke backs them up. And he does it calmly, rationally and sincerely, while the Bush White House and its allies attempt to do the same smear job on him that it did on former Ambassador Joe Wilson and a number of other professional civil servants who refused to sing the deceitful White House party line.

Clarke is not a partisan; he's described as a hard-driving professional who was passionate about his work. He doesn't give the administration of President Bill Clinton a pass on terrorism. He writes that while the Clinton crew took terrorism and Al-Qaida very seriously and wanted to kill Osama bin Laden, it was ultimately ineffective in dealing with the developing threat.

The difference in the Bush administration, Clarke says, is that it didn't consider the threat urgent, even though he and others were saying it needed immediate attention. Bush said as much to journalist Bob Woodward. "I was not on point" on terrorism, he said. "I didn't feel the sense of urgency."
