The Socialist Origins of the Pledge of Allegiance (tags)
Francis Bellamy, a Christian socialist, wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892 as a critique of the rampant greed, misguided materialism, and hyper-individualism of the Gilded Age. But you'd never know that by reading CNN contributor Bob Greene's column earlier this week called "The Peculiar History of the Pledge of Allegiance."

Oct 6 DC Stop the War Machine & Create A New World (tags)
October 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan and the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget. It is time to light the spark that sets off a true democratic, nonviolent transition to a world in which people are freed to create just and sustainable solutions. As Mother Jones said, "Someday the workers will take possession of your city hall, and when we do, no child will be sacrificed on the altar of profit!."
Good news from WBAI, Pacifica in NY (tags)
WBAI is KPFA's Pacifica sister station in New York. Unfortunately, for several years WBAI was dominated and mismanaged by a group which called itself the "Justice & Unity Coalition" (JUC). The rule of the JUC ended this spring, when Grace Aaron became Pacifica's PNB chair and acting Executive Director; she intervened and made changes. Below is a report from WBAI by Doug Henwood.
Jeremy Scahill: This (Old) News Just In... Obama Doesn't Plan to End the Iraq Occupation (tags)
The New York Times is reporting about an "apparent evolution" in president-elect Barack Obama's thinking on Iraq, citing his recent statements about his plan to keep a "residual force" in the country and his pledge to "listen to the recommendations of my commanders" as Obama prepares to assume actual command of US forces. "At the Pentagon and the military headquarters in Iraq, the response to the statements this week from Mr. Obama and his national security team has been akin to the senior officer corps' letting out its collective breath," the Times reported. "The words sounded to them like the new president would take a measured approach on the question of troop levels."

No Blood for Oil - Sign the Voter's Pledge (tags)
"No More Oil Wars-- Clean Energy Now!" This popular sentiment must find expression in government policy, and it is our job this fall to make every candidate running for Congress understand that this is what our people want. We should be circulating the VotersForPeace Pledge which declares that those signing "will not vote for or support any candidate for Congress or President who does not make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any future war of aggression, a public position in his or her campaign." We must make visible this popular desire for peace, a rapid transition to clean energy and justice.

eBay's Nazi policies boycotted nationwide (tags)
A nationwide boycott of eBay is protesting eBay's hypocrisy regarding Nazi items that glorify Nazism. Ebay abets sales of Nazi stamps and coins, for example. eBay's Nazi stamps and coins show offensive items that were made by Nazis to glorify Nazism, Hitler, hatred & racism. Hypocritically, eBay banned the sale of a historic photograph of the USA's original Pledge of Allegiance (which was the origin of the Nazi salute) while allowing Nazi stamps that show the Nazi flag saluted.

Kerry's pledge to win the peace is a public plan to escalate the war (tags)
You can see now why I pine for Nixon. Running for election in 1968, he was smart enough to claim he had a secret plan to end the war, which had to remain classified. Even though he later intensified the war, he knew what people wanted to hear. He gave it to them and they bought it. It's easy to see why Kerry, in contrast, is less popular than Nixon: Kerry's pledge to win the peace is a public plan to escalate the war.

Not to be outdone by the US Senate, which voted 99 to 0 to support the illegal, religious, reactionary Pledge of Allegiance, the House of Representatives voted 416 to 3 to condemn the 9th Circuit Court's excellent Church/State separation ruling, thus proving that they, like the US Senate and Gov Gray Davis all are proud of violating their oath of office which mandates they support the Constitution, including the First Amendment, which mandates separation of church and state.
