Queer Democrats Make Defeating Prop. 32 a Priority (tags)
The predominantly Queer San Diego Democrats for Equality voted August 23 to make defeating Proposition 32 a priority race in the November 6 election. Proposition 32 is an effort to destroy the ability of organized labor to raise money for political campaigns, and it's being sold deceptively as a campaign finance reform measure even though its principal sponsors are multi-million dollar donors to Republican candidates and super-PAC's. On the eve of Women's Equality Day, the club also heard from professors Dr. Sue Gonda and Carla Kirkwood on the history of women's struggles for equality and their links to the Queer rights movement.

EPCC: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last address- Lot of Hot Air (tags)
For the Echo Park Community Coalition, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last address to the California legislature are just a lot of hot air. The governator’s call to “overhaul the funding system for state prisons and higher education, approve a jobs creation package and seek more money from Washington, even as he attacked the national healthcare plan”, is just another lip service for actor’s grandstanding before he exits.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gavin Newsom to the right of Sarah Palin? (tags)
Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin increased the severance tax on oil and natural gas in the State of Alaska to 25% in 2007. California's Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and California Republicans, however, stand steadfast against an oil and natural gas severance tax, even as California teeters on the verge of bankruptcy. And, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who would be governor, and president, remains silent.

How much offshore oil does Arnold Schwarzenegger plan to drill for? (tags)
Arnold Schwarzenegger;s proposal to extend oil drillling leases off the coast of Santa Barbara is shrouded in secrecy, backroom dealing, wildly conflicting numbers about projected revenue, and Governor Schwarzenegger's power grab for authority over the oil drilling lease permitting process. If we, Californians don't act to protect our coast, we may well see a lot more oil drilling than that now proposed, before Governor Schwarzenegger leaves office, in 2011, all in the name of solving California's budget crisis.

Mahigit 21 bagong kongresista ang naipanalo ng mga ito laban sa dating mayoryang Republicans. Mahigpit pang pinaglalalabanan ang anim na pwesto sa senado. Nakuha din ng mga demokrata ang mayorya ng mga goberador sa 50 estado ng Amerika na isang pinakamalaking bagay sa loob ng 20 taon. Maraming nagsasabing ang mga matitinding eskandalo ang pumatay sa mga Republikano.

No to Angelides and Schwarzenegger! Yes to Janice Jordan! (tags)
Angelides criticized Schwarzenegger for his praise for the racist anti-immigrant vigilantes called the “Minutemen” while in the same breath calling for a "guest worker" program that would create a new class of super-exploited worker with no political rights. Under the same type of program in the past U.S. bosses often failed to even pay Mexican workers for their hard labor. The fact that Angelides and the Democrat Party are now calling for this kind of legalization of indentured servitude place them firmly in the same racist camp as Schwarzenegger.

The International Socialist Organization and the 2006 election (tags)
The International Socialist Organization is holding a conference this weekend in New York City under the slogan “Socialism 2006—Build the Left, Fight the Right.” An examination of the perspective upon which this gathering has been organized, however, makes clear that it is aimed at promoting a “left” variety of bourgeois politics, in the form of the Green Party, which can serve only to divert a mass movement that arises against the right-wing policies of the two major parties and lead it into a political dead end.
Minutemen - Enforcers of Death on the Border & Promoters of Racist Hatred (tags)
The U.S. government is enforcing, and trying to pass even worse laws that force immigrants even deeper into the shadows by criminalizing undocumented people and denying them basic services.
Alongside this increasing, inhumane repression, the powers-that-be are promoting an anti-immigrant, nativist, fascist movement throughout the U.S. This vigilante movement is persecuting and hunting down immigrants along the border region, and has also been organizing forces in major cities like Los Angeles and Chicago and counties throughout Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Among this fascist nativist movement, the Minutemen have emerged as a prominent vigilante group that has been gaining notoriety and legitimacy as expert guests on reactionary news channels like Fox and other mainstream media outlets like CNN.
Enrique Morones, whose group the Border Angels puts water through the desert for migrants, has been actively speaking out against the Minutemen and other vigilantes like Ranch Rescue, American Patrol, the Barnett Brothers, among others. Morones says that although the Minutemen are not an organization of thousands, as they often claim, the Minutemen and the increased militarization of the border are responsible for an increase in migrant deaths.
In a phone interview with Revolution, Morones said, “Before Operation Gatekeeper, which was implemented in 1994, there was one estimated death along the border every month. Since then, an estimated 4,000 people have died trying to cross the border.” He told Revolution that 4,000 bodies have been accounted for, but that the realistic number might be considerably higher, “possibly as much as 10,000 deaths.”
It is difficult to measure the exact numbers because while some skeletons and scattered bones are found in the desert, many of the deceased bodies are never found.

The media has skillfully focused on his father and away from all the real Nazi connections and said "Arnold can't help what his daddy did." But what they don't tell you about is that Arnold is a self proclaimed follower of Kurt Waldheim. Kurt Waldheim was a favorite of the United Nations and served as Secretary General from 1972 to1982. When Waldheim ran for the Presidency of Austria in 1986, Arnold was Waldheim’s biggest supporter and campaigned across Austria. He was even featured on campaign posters. During Waldheim’s campaign it emerged that he had been a wanted war criminal for atrocities he had commanded as an officer in the dreaded Nazi SS. Waldheim had written and approved posters and leaflets that read among many things, "enough of the Jewish war, kill the Jews, come over.”
