National Rally Against Prop 8 Sat 11/15 in PDX

We're presented with a rare opportunity to be a positive force in the history of our country, to stand in solidarity with a minority group fighting for its civil rights.  On Saturday, November 15th, protestors will gather in cities across the country to speak out against the anti-gay politics and sentiment of our recent elections, including California's Prop 8.  Please check out the following link:

As a lesbian, I'm personally moved by the words of Joe Solmonese, President of Human Rights Campaign:
 

The Decider

 Apropos of my post below, Obama is planning to review the plethora of onerous executive orders issued by President Bush:

President-elect Barack Obama is poised to move swiftly to reverse actions that President Bush took using executive authority, and his transition team is reviewing limits on stem-cell research and the expansion of oil and gas drilling, among other issues, members of the team said Sunday.

Clearly, much more needs to be reviewed besides the issues mentioned above, but for a guy who's more than a month from taking office, this is a very encouraging start.

Mobilizing While the Time is Right

This has been an incredible week! In Portland, within a half and hour after the polls closed on Tuesday, voters began loudly celebrating the election of Barak Obama. As a 42 year old woman, I can say that I have never seen an election night like this. With cars honking, people screaming, and assorted fireworks here and there--- it was livelier than any New Year's eves I can remember (indeed, livelier than most 4th of Julys-- possible exception of The Bicentennial), too. The relief and joy felt by so many in this country was palpable.

Today the Moles  reflect  on the Obama victory: its impact on black folks and the left’s response: euphoria, high hopes, and the advice he’s  getting on health care,  unions, the environment, as well as worries about his first appointments.   We’ll also hear  a  tribute to the late Studs Terkel.

Election night at the Multnomah County Election Office

Categories:

November 4, 2008 outside of the Multnomah County election office the line of voters waiting to cast their vote strung along SE Morrison Street for two blocks estimated to take an hour plus to get through.  Multnomah County officials were on site with special forms for those in line to fill in previous to reaching the office, which expedites the process.  The same worker told us that this line was shorter than the one in 2004.
