OEN Zoom Poetry by OEN Poets We do an OEN Zoom conversation every Saturday at 8 PM EST. This past Saturday a number of the participants read poetry. Some read famous poets, from Shakespeare to Rumi and some read their own poetry. I encouraged them to post the poetry to OEN. Here's a collection of what was posted that was read in the Zoom session.

Edges I founded and ran a conference and would instruct all of the speakers-- up to 85-- to go beyond their edges, to stretch their envelopes. I wrote this poem in 2008, the year after I stopped doing the conferences, which I ran for fifteen years.

People's Party Convention is Incredible Yesterday The People's Party convention happened. Like the DNC convention and much of the RNC convention, it happened using video, probably zoom. And it was amazing. If you missed it, you are in for a real treat.

Police Allow Civil War in Kenosha; Two Dead, One Injured Has a vigilante started the war right-wing extremists have been longing for? Are police allowing white nationalist, racists to literally engage in terroristic murder in the streets? The possibility that looting and even burning of buildings is or could be happening is no excuse for murder or giving vigilantes a pass. It sure looks like the local police are in collusion with murdering domestic terrorists.

Stop Supporting Right Wing Messaging and thus, Strategies I'm writing this article to explain to readers what my thinking is. OpEdNews has been and will continue to be a very open site that allows a lot of room for discussion and questions. But I'm taking a top-down approach and cracking down on right wing rooted conspiracy theories and the very specific language associated with them.

Biden Acceptance Speech Shortest Time Since JFK; Complete Final Transcript At twenty-four minutes and twenty-eight seconds Biden's Democratic party nomination acceptance speech is the shortest since John F Kennedy gave his speech in sixty years ago in 1960, according to the American Presidency Project. Part of the reason is probably because of the no-audience format. The word length of his speech was longer than the speeches of numerous recent presidents.

AOC's Response to Rep Yoho-- You Absolutely MUST Listen Alexandria Ocasio Cortez gave a speech to congress, in response to the despicably false apology by Rep. Yoho. It has been called one of the most important speeches in decades. Every man should listen to it to learn. Every woman should listen to it so she raises her expectations of men's behavior. A rough transcript follows the videos.

Trump's Fascist Invasion and War Against Portland We've known the potential was there. We've known that as the election became closer and closer, psychopath malignant narcissist Trump would get more desperate and abuse his powers more, in dangerous ways. Now we're seeing it, with his storm trooper BORTAC Border Patrol swat team agents invading Portland, literally attacking citizens, against the will of the Mayor and governor.

Selling the Deep State Apocalypse Message Fox News constantly spews apocalyptic pessimism. That's just the tip of the right wing echo chamber's massive messaging effort aimed at assaulting government and regulations. They do it by selling a picture of the world that is at its end. The apocalypse is almost here. It's looming over us.

Duped Progressives, Democrats and Right Wingers I'm tired of progressives-- and I mean people I am certain are progressive-- helping to amplify and blast out right wing echo chamber messaging, because they've been duped. And it's not just the progressives and the left who are being duped. It's also right wingers. Surprise. Both the neocon right and the neoliberal left political parties are both happily engaging in despicable behavior that deserve our contempt.

Clearing a Trail I literally cleared a trail yesterday. One good part of these Corona Virus times is I've gotten in the habit of walking and running. My wife and I will walk 100 yards then run 100 or 200 yards, then walk some more. We've found great unpaved trails where we can do our daily 3 miles and only see four or five people the whole way. But yesterday, a massive tree was blockig about 20 feet of the trail. I decided to clear it.

Occupy Police? Minneapolis Is First Police Dept to Be Dismantled: What Next? Minneapolis City Council has voted, with a veto-proof majority, to dismantle the city's police department. This is the first domino that could set off massive change throughout the country. The model of policing in most places in the United States has evolved into something dangerous and out of control. What we need to see now is an explosion of conversations about how to approach the role of policing--
