All Eyes on Chicago's Teachers (tags)
It’s impossible to exaggerate the national importance of the teachers’ struggle in Chicago. If the Chicago teachers’ union — 26,000 members strong — goes on strike, many critical yet ignored political issues will go into the national spotlight, exposing nastiness that many politicians and labor leaders would like ignored until after the presidential elections.

Falling In Line (tags)
It is easy to get sucked into the ups and downs of elections. This year's presidential campaign is no different. The idea it's anybody's race and can go any way at any time gets played over and over for us like a two song playlist on repeat and shuffle. Except this two song playlist has added live commentary telling us every time that there is the distinct possibility the song could end up differently than we pretty much already know it will end up. We keep hearing in convincing fashion there is still the chance it could go differently this time. Yet if we've been paying attention we may see... well a distinct pattern perhaps.

Surely IT WOULD BE A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY... ... BUT ACCORDING TO THE ACCEPTED CANONS OF RIGHT AND WRONG, NOTHING CAN BE SAID AGAINST THE ARAB RESISTANCE [in Palestine] IN THE FACE OF OVERWHELMING ODDS. LET THE JEWS WHO CLAIM TO BE THE CHOSEN RACE PROVE THEIR TITLE BY CHOOSING THE WAY OF NON-VIOLENCE FOR VINDICATING THEIR POSITION ON EARTH. ... HE CAN COMMAND THE ATTENTION AND RESPECT OF THE WORLD BY BEING THE CHOSEN CREATION OF GOD, INSTEAD OF SINKING TO THE BRUTE WHO IS FORSAKEN BY GOD.
Teachers and Democrats Head for Divorce (tags)
It’s best to quickly recognize the red flags in any failing relationship. This way, ties can be severed instead of allowing things to linger forever in dysfunction. For Democrats and teachers’ unions, the writing is on the wall. The two are simply going in opposite directions. The Democrats continue on the road to corporate-inspired charter schools, using the tried and true method of “stronger teacher evaluations” to undermine “underperforming” schools and teachers — thus opening the door wide to private charter schools with their non-union workforce.

Queer Democrats’ Surprising Lieutenant Governor Endorsement (tags)
The predominantly Queer San Diego Democratic Club made a surprising choice in the June 8 Democratic primary for lieutenant governor. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom became a nationwide hero to the Queer community in February 2004 when he unilaterally ordered city officials to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples, but the club rejected him in favor of Los Angeles City Councilmember Janice Hahn. Members’ concerns about Newsom included his less than progressive stands on economic issues, his notoriously messy personal life, his potentially rocky relationship with presumed Democratic gubernatorial nominee Jerry Brown, and the risks of going into a statewide election with two white men at the top of the ticket against likely Republican nominees Meg Whitman for governor and Abel Maldonado for lieutenant governor.
Queer Democrats Split on 79th Assembly District Race (tags)
The predominantly Queer San Diego Democratic Club revealed itself dramatically split in the Democratic primary race for the 79th Assembly District. City Council president Ben Hueso is running a classic “insider” campaign, relying on major endorsements and fundraising clout. His principal challenger, Sweetwater Union High School District board member Pearl Quiñones, is seeking the office in a progressive grass-roots campaign in the tradition of Assemblymember Lori Saldaña (who endorses her) and City Councilmember Donna Frye. The club was unable to reach the 60 percent threshold needed for an endorsement, and ultimately voted to rate both candidates “acceptable.”

U.S. IMPERIALISM IN THE PHILIPPINES (tags)
After more than a century of brutal colonization of the Philippines, U.S. troops continue to battle Moro insurgents and the New People's Army guerillas to protects its investments, support the bloody oligarchs headed by the Arroyo clique, and preserve its neocolonial stranglehold. The U.S. public should wake up to demand that Obama stop its support of the Arroyo regime and withdraw U.S. troops. E. San Juan's two books might help inform the US public of what's going on in the Philippines today.

Making Sense of a U.S. Owned General Motors (tags)
Now that the United States owns General Motors, many are asking, “What’s in it for taxpayers?” This is an extremely good question, considering that taxpayers may spend up to $100 billion [!] towards a company that’s currently worth around $450 million. (Wall Street Journal, 6/02/09) This large discrepancy in numbers means, obviously, that taxpayers could lose tremendous amounts of “investment” money if Obama’s “profit first” plan is put into effect. What is this plan? Strip the company to a fraction of its former self, using far fewer workers and making far less money in the hopes that GM will then out-compete the foreign competition on the world market.
Memorial Day Weekend at the Indy500 in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. (tags)
I absolutely, completely, totally, wholeheartedly agree that we should honor and care for our veterans, instead of waging what Aaron Glantz, in his book "The War Comes Home," calls "America's war against veterans." But, I would much rather see them honored with medical and psychiatric care, education, job training, and whatever else they may need to survive than with more military recruitment fests, including this Indy500 spectacle celebrating cars, greenhouse gas, advertising, and militarism.

A Long Way to Go (tags)
In an effort to reconstruct after the defeats of the latest elections Republicans have been working to re-brand themselves. They have suffered from an association with the Bush – Cheney administration no doubt. The refusal of many Republicans to openly distance themselves from them during the elections surely contributed to this, but that’s not all. Now, Michael Steele, the new Chairman of the Republican National Committee wants to give the party “a hip hop make over.” That will be interesting.

Pro-Israel Donors Rally For Joe, as Left Takes Aim (tags)
What is insidious about the two pro-Israel PACs mentioned. They don't reveal what they stand for in their names and both PACs are from outside of Connecticut. It is the policy of pro-Israel PACs across the country to only contribute money to politicians outside of their respective states based solely on a candidate's position on Israel. In other words, these Israel-Firsters, for they are nothing less than that, have made a policy decision that the welfare of Israel should have a higher priority than the desires of the voters in the states where they funnel their contributions. No dual-loyalty problem for these guys.

Race and National Origin at Pacifica Why You Should Care (tags)
Turn on your radio. Spin the dial. Companies like clear channel and Cox own well in excess of 3000 broadcast outlets. That's how most of us get our information. Pacifica exists to counter that. It has only 5 stations, but in major cities, With $400,000,000 in assests and 16 million in yearly budget the foundation is the single most valuable asset of the left. Under one vision it would move to the right, under another it would recruit activists to actually create media.

So, no surprise, Netkin is the guy who was arrested last night in Orange County for driving his van into a crowd of Latinos protesting an appearance by the head of the Minuteman Project.

Do I judge all European Americans based on Trent Lott, David Duke, Jessie Helms, et al. Come on now, your liberal "white guilt," as Tim Wise would put it, is seeping through.
"I will admit that there are some right-wing pseudo-christian, groups like voz de aztlan in whitey-er, I mean whittier, calfornia, that promote homophobia and anti-jewish american sentiment, but they reflect only a small, middle class, Anglo-identified segment of the larger Latino and Native American community.
