UAW: Reform or rebellion? (tags)
"History shows that every gain won by American workers was the result of militant struggles in opposition to the corporate establishment and both big business parties. The very right to have a union, as well as the eight-hour day, child labor laws, overtime pay, health benefits, etc. was won in often bloody struggles against the violent resistance of the employers and the government. Whenever the Democrats, under the threat of revolution, conceded concessions to workers’ demands, they did so to smother the social movement so they could claw back the workers’ gains at a later point."
Detroit Police Murder 7-year-old girl (tags)
Ever wonder why the police are so often considered to be just as bad as the criminals they're supposed to be suppressing? Atrocities being committed against innocent American citizens by the police are an added burdon that citizens must cope with, and cops are quickly becoming a worse problem than criminals. When fascist pigs with pretend training commit military-style assaults against innocent citizens under the guise of "fighting terror" or "war on drugs" or just because they're hopped up on steroids, we get atrocities committed like the one below.

A Vatican agent in the U.S. wants to see Clermont’s opus banned!

Green Strategy 2004-2008 (tags)
How did the David Cobb/Pat LaMarche ticket receive the Green Party nomination? And what does it mean for the Green Party in particular and American politics in general? My conclusion is that the so-called "red states" Greens, by rejecting Ralph Nader/Peter Camejo campaign, first of all served to diminish the Green Party's own strength in the "safe state" of California, ironically without helping the pro-war Democratic Party candidate John Kerry (despite the hope of the Cobb/LaMarche faction) in the most crucial "swing states": Ohio (20 electors/3.6% victory margin in 2000), Florida (27/0.0%), Pennsylvania (21/4.1%), and Michigan (17/5.1%).
Arab American Leadership Conference a Huge Success (tags)
Some media outlets decided to focus on the unfortunate outburst of a few, many of whom were not Arab American, instead of focusing on the rest of the conference which was a very positive experience.
