One and One-Half Class Citizen (tags)

The California Supreme Court decision on May 26 upholding the validity of Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage voters approved in last November’s election, but also ruling that the estimated 18,000 same-sex marriages in California between June 15 and November 4, 2008 were still legal, left the same-sex couples who got married in time (including this author) in an anomalous position. We can’t really call ourselves second-class citizens because our marriages are still in force, but we can’t call ourselves first-class citizens either because other couples with love and mutual commitment equal to our own can no longer follow suit. In a sense, the voters and the courts have granted us “special rights” we neither wanted nor expected.

GMA Impeachment Defeated, 42-8 (tags)

This what their “democracy” looks like. Again, the Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) through its National Coordinator Mario Santos vehemently condemns in the highest terms the GMA controlled House of Representatives led by well known GMA puppets Legman, Defensor, Villarosa and others in a massive show of tyranny in numbers, crushed the impeachment attempt by voting down the minority opposition by a vote of 42-8. Santos further said: “Again, they showed us what bourgeois democracy means in a semi feudal and semi colonial country. That they can do what they like as long as they have the majority and they do not care about the rights of the minority and what is right and wrong.

PHILIPPINES: Lozada committed an act of valor and integrity, not destabilization (tags)

AKBAYAN Citizens Action Party Rep. Risa Hontiveros said that dismissing Lozada’s explosive statement as an attempt to destabilize the country would not do, saying that what Lozada divulged lays accountability on the National Broadband Network (NBN) deal at the doorstep of Malacanang Presidential Palace.

Wake-up Call (tags)

If after comparing actual events with posturing and rhetoric you conclude that Western governments serve minority corporate interests rather than the interests of the people, you would have discovered the lie that is democracy. You may also be surprised to discover that the majority of people who live in so-called democratic societies are actually compliant slaves! Governments that are SUBJECT to the rule of minority Corporate/Financial elites could hardly be expected to serve the interests of the majority if their masters specialise in inequity, disparity and the concentration of wealth in the fewest possibly hands. The appropriate response to any politician who states they are serving the interests of democracy, liberty or the people should therefore be, LIAR – unless of course you belong to the category of mindless slaves referred to above!

Brinkmanship Tactics or Coup D'Etat?: Removing Hamas (tags)

One could not but wonder whether the real Israeli-U.S.-backed provocateurs' aim is to bring about the downfall of both Abbas and Hamas in order to maintain and sustain a pre-Hamas comfortable status quo, where their interests and privileges are preserved and the interests of their backers are ideally served.

WALKOUT - A Critical Review (tags)

Some people have recently called the HBO film, Walkout, as “providing much inspiration to the student walkouts” across America in recent days. Although the film is a historical feature that tells the story of the Chicano people’s struggle against racism and discrimination and is undoubtedly a breakthrough against white supremacy, it is also a telling lesson in the chauvinism of some Chicano activists towards Filipinos in America. This is a case of a majority minority that unconsciously or consciously discriminates against another albeit smaller national minority in advocating for its own self-determination in the United States.

Rep. Conyers to Challenge Stolen Ohio Election on Thursday (tags)

Iraqis stage protest against U.S. imposed flag (tags)

In the photo, Iraqi university students raise the Iraqi flag over their campus in the northern city of Mosul April 28, 2004 while demonstrating against the U.S. occupation forces attempting to introduce a new flag for the country. The unelected and U.S. hand picked Iraqi Governing Council adopted a new national flag (see inset) which consists of a pale blue crescent on a white background and has a yellow strip between two lines of blue at the bottom. Also in the photo, the Iraqi university students look up at their massive flag draped over a campus building. Critics of the new flag say it places Iraq outside of the Arab world... since all Arab flags use a combination of the colors red, green, black, and white. It has also been noted that the U.S. occupation imposed flag bares a striking simularity to the Israeli flag. The photo also shows Iraqi civilians burning the newly imposed occupation sanctioned flag (Reuters photos, Namir Noor-Eldeen)

A minority view: the problem with liberals (tags)

The problem lies in the inherent mind-set of any organization as liberal as The Times. For minorities, this produces what I call paternalistic condescension: paternalistic because the liberal feels that only he knows what is good for the minorities, since the minorities cannot take care of themselves; and condescension because he feels good by lowering himself to help those he feels are below him.

COUP WATCH: FBI To Probe More Minority Disenfranchisement (tags)

According to a report by the Sun-Sentinel, the FBI is investigating allegations that so-called “palm cards” were handed out to Haitians at Precinct 153 in Miami-Dade County that were presented as a vote for Gore, but gave Bush's number on the Miami-Dade ballot instead. It’s perhaps the most novel approach yet that the GOP has discovered to reach out to minority voters--and kidnap them.
