Phelps, Corpses, and Dollar $Democracy
23 May 2006
Can this Janus-faced* country actually learn something from the Phelps charade of civic concern?

-------------
We gays and lesbians of America will only gain what is our birthright when we refuse to step back, refuse to go to the back door, refuse to accept only crumbs from the big table. If this sounds like the civil rights talk of the 1960's, you're right. Only when we throw a social wrench in the business and political gears of our country will we be recognized for our valuable contributions to the fabric of humanity.

Impeachment: A Winning Argument
23 May 2006
Modified: 12:25:43 PM
Even if they win, the Democrats in Congress can’t do anything while the president claims the right to ignore acts duly passed by the House and Senate. To pass a Democratic agenda, this president would have to be removed.

George McGovern on class relations in America
23 May 2006
It would be hard to find more compelling evidence of the bankruptcy of Democratic Party liberalism and the fundamental hostility of this big business party to the interests of the working class than an opinion column published in Monday’s Los Angeles Times under the byline of former South Dakota Senator George McGovern.
The column, headlined “The End of More,” amounts to a brief for why American workers must accept ever-deeper cuts in their wages and benefits, and a justification for the lavish salaries and bonuses handed out to the CEOs who impose these cuts.
McGovern has been out of office for more than 25 years. As the 1972 Democratic presidential candidate, who challenged incumbent Republican Richard Nixon on an anti-Vietnam War platform, he has long been regarded as an icon of Democratic Party liberalism. The primary function of his unsuccessful candidacy was to channel the broad radicalization that was developing in the US over the war back into the confines of bourgeois politics and the two-party system.

Interacting With Street Performers
22 May 2006
The behavior of the public is bizarre as seen through the eyes of a street performer (aka “busker”). For instance, today I was busking a street fair in Seattle, and these yuppie women leaned down and nicely placed their hot pink yoga studio ad upright in my guitar case, as if I am a billboard for them. I said, “Could you please take your advertising out of my case?” and they acted offended! So let’s just start right here with Rule #1. Do not throw your trash, or your personal advertisements, in street performers’ cases.

SEC,Chris Cox,Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer Aid CIA'S In-Q-Tel penny stock fraud
22 May 2006
Before beginning any criticism of Barbara Boxer for anything whatsoever it would be unfair to not to praise her for her stance against the Bush Regime's Iraq war from the very beginning.Below is a list of the sad minority of Senators who had the courage or common sense not to place that decision in the hands of the mad man some call 'president', George W Bush.Of course the far right hypocrite Hillary Clinton is another story.She who cries of a 'far right conpiracy' against her and hubby Bill Clinton,is one.

Zogby Poll: Over 70 Million American Adults Support New 9/11 Investigation
22 May 2006
The poll is the first scientific survey of Americans' belief in a 9/11 cover up or the need to investigate possible US government complicity, and was commissioned to inform deliberations at the June 2~4 "9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future" conference in Chicago. Poll results indicate 42% believe there has indeed been a cover up (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure).
