Villaraigosa: The Myth of The Progressive Mayor (tags)
While Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa disappointed supporters and failed to deliver any progressive policies whatsoever, he was hardly a failure to those he really serves. Indeed, for developers, real estate tycoons, billionaires, and school privatization profiteers, Villaraigosa's eight year reign was a smashing success.

How Is All That In The Interest Of US Taxpayers? (tags)
Our democracy here in America has brought many positive things. It has brought positive things for Americans and for people living abroad. It has inspired others to try and have a more equal and free system of government in their own nations. It has inspired the best and the brightest from other nations to come to our nation seeking a better life for themselves, thus contributing something to their lives and to our nation. Positive things no doubt.
Rogue newspapers or part of a continuum? (tags)
Not covering certain news can be as important as covering news. The New York Times regularly gives heavy coverage, often on the front page, of demonstrations in Moscow, yet published only a tiny article buried far inside the paper on the May Day demonstrations, some of which occurred only two blocks from its office. That is simply a different, more sophisticated method of marginalizing a mass movement than the crude, politically motivated attacks in Murdoch newspapers.

Breakdwon FM M-1 of dead prez vs Don Imus - and Democracy now report and transcript (tags)
M-1: I'm here to represent for African people. I'm here to represent for hip-hop. I don't have a lot to say, but what I have to say is important. First of all, I would like to pay respect to the father of this culture that I'm a part of, sitting right beside me, Afrika Bambaataa. That's important. That's important, because I think there's a few things that we do know, and what we do know is that the media in this country is an organ of the state and the ruling class state that controls what we're hearing and what we're seeing. I'm clear on that. So it helps me understand our position. It helps me understand that this propaganda is part of a war that also exists against the black and brown community. It's not just a war for oil, it's a war for the minds of our people.

HOW A MINUTEKLAN CO-FOUNDER GOT MORE THAN HE BARGAINED FOR IN LONG ISLAND, NY (tags)
Well, it looks like our friends in the Minuteklan Project wanted to come out and see if they can bring their crap to the East Coast, so they held another meeting, this time in Babylon, Long Island in New York. About 100 people came out to see him, but they were all of us, and that made for an interesting afternoon on the Island. Chris Simcox, the co-founder of the Minuteklan Project, was the featured speaker at this meeting, and that was what prompted so many people to come out. We have at this link a slew of pics from the day, and as always, if you recognize anyone in the pics, hit us up and give us the story.
