    Wow. A whole workshop on how to be an asshole.

    It would be fun to show up and disrupt the sessions, only then they’d think we were instructors.

    Good location for a 5 kiloton stink bomb.
    Do they make those that big?
    Well, they should. These are critical times.

    This is turning violent, just as I predicted.

    I know a lot of trade union people who would strongly object to their unions funding this bullshit. Maybe they can show up and offer their “insight”.

    The public meetings are an overt, amateur show.
    Pure PR.
    Well, that and a recruiting op for dupes to be exploited by the pros who don’t hold their meetings in public.
    … and a police-spy identification trap.

    I remember the Ruckus Society. They’re not nice. Do a web search. Here’s the horse’s mouth (I cleaned that one up).

    As usual, following the money trail up the river, we find Undue Influence:
    “Description: A radical anti-corporate group that trains activists in revolution, and to commit unlawful acts under the rubric of “nonviolent” direct action and “peaceful” protests. Primarily funded by Turner Foundation, which donated $115,000 to Ruckus from 1996 to 1999 …”

    Turner stopped funding them in 2002, when he found out that they’d been naughty. (It took him seven years to find out who he was giving money to?)

    Joe Band Member : If the Ruckus guys get in, it will get violent.

    Is there any viable reason why the city of Olympia, Washington should continue to exist?

    None I know of, It’s now changed its name to “Little Frisco”.

    They haven’t quite gotten the “Folsom Street Fair” thing down yet, butt they’re working it out
