They Cannot Win (tags)
Being in a situation where it feels as though the odds are stacked against you, and people are interested in seeing harm come to you in one form or another can be hard to deal with, there's no doubt about it. When it feels as though amount of support, at least directly within the situation in question, is tipped way in favor of those against whatever it is you are doing there, in terms of your goals and needs in the situation, it can easily bring about pangs of despair. It can feel as though there are no options, it can feel as though there are no chances and it can feel as though you might just have to take an “L” on whatever it is. We all have been through similar feelings to one extent or another in life, especially the longer we live it.

San Diego Queer Democrats Reject Progressive, Endorse Moderate for Congress (tags)
The San Diego Democrats for Equality, a predominantly Queer Democratic party club, decisively rejected the Congressional candidacy of progressive former Assemblymember Lori Saldaña at its regular meeting January 26. Instead they endorsed moderate Scott Peters on the ground that he'd be a better "fit" for the district, could raise more money and would have a better shot at unseating Republican incumbent Brian Bilbray.

FAUSTINO “BOJIE” DY IS NOT THE MOST FORMIDABLE OPPONENT AMONG THE DY BROTHERS, HE IS NOT THE MOST POPULAR , HE IS NOT THE MOST CAPABLE, BUT THEIR FAMILY IS AT THEIR MOST DESPERATE TO WIN THE ELECTIONS. SIX YEARS IS TOO LONG FOR THEM TO BE OUT OF THE CAPITOL AND THEY COULD NOT AFFORD TO BE WITHOUT POWER FOR THREE MORE YEARS.

Greens congratulate Caroline Lucas, UK's first Green in Parliament, on victory (tags)
"The election of the first Green to the British House of Commons is cause for celebration among Greens in the US and for everyone who wants to see a new direction in politics and an end to the stranglehold of the pro-war pro-corporate old parties," said Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party's 2008 nominee for President of the United States and former member of the US House of Representatives from Georgia.

Over 50 Attend Whitburn Fundraiser in Hillcrest March 28 (tags)
Stephen Whitburn, openly Gay candidate for the Fourth Supervisorial District in San Diego County, held a fundraiser for his campaign Sunday, March 28 at the Bamboo Lounge in Hillcrest. Despite vicious attacks from supposedly “progressive” media outlets in both the straight and Queer communities, the event was a success, drawing more than 50 people who roared their support for Whitburn's opposition to the proposed Merriam Mountains development — a plan to blast off the tops of mountains to build houses on them — and the practice of Supervisors to accept gifts from individuals, organizations and corporations who directly benefit from the Board's decisions.

There are thousands of activists of one type or another who want to change society and recognize that we need a movement to do that. many of these people are in organizations and groupings, many are in Unions. What is causing the delay in the building of a new movement to throw back the present capitalist offensive. One major factor is the heads of Organized Labor, but they are not the only factor.
Chinese Smile vs American Gun (tags)
China's President Hu Jintao re-establishes trade links with Africa vowing not to interfere with the sovereign rights of African nations. The net result of this soft approach is African nations clamouring to the Chinese whose trade links with Africa extend thousands of years into the past. Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of large African port cities containing artefacts and trade material from China and Africa. Large amounts of ceramics, ivory, gems, precious metals and a wealth of other artefacts reveal a long history of lively and thriving two-way trade between the two continents.

Unqualified Slogans: “Win” and “Way Forward” (tags)
As America faces the most calamitous military misadventure in its history, the administration offers unqualified slogans rather than detailed plans to remedy the horror it created in Iraq. The American mass media is now buzzing with the sound of nothing meaningful. The Bush administration has resorted to contextually meaningless slogans in its efforts to dupe an increasingly sceptical public. The latest inane slogans saturating the airwaves are “win” and “way forward”. Only adolescents and the daft invest meaning in unqualified slogans – shall we test the latest two slogans and attempt to determine the ruse behind the deception?

NEVER in U.S. presidential politics have massive crowds shown up to endorse an incumbent! (tags)
15 million new voters were registered in one of the most massive get out the vote drives ever, through the citizen efforts of grassroots organizing and exemplified the beauty and need to continue towards participatory democracy. A large majority were planning to try to have their votes recorded for Kerry/Edwards. Amazingly with all the widespread disgust and discontent, Bush/Cheney added almost 10 million votes from the 2000 debacle, 49mil to 59mil while the Democrats only increased 2mil from 53(Gore/Nadar) to 55. Here are some reports and analysis that point toward proving what the Media reported cannot stand up to an audit, verification, certification of a fair, free honest and legitimate election. This scripting, trickle-down reality control makes a mockery of citizens time and efforts to ensure the process respects the sanctity of the vote.
Silver Linings Dept: Russ Feingold Shows Dems the Way to 2008 (tags)

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.
