text Egypt’s Revolution After the Smoke Clears Shamus Cooke 2013-08-18 7:18 AM
In times of crisis people strive for easy answers to complex situations. In Egypt this has resulted in absurdly digestible sound bites, where one side is labeled “good”(the Muslim Brotherhood), the other “bad” (the army), and the revolution as a whole is condemned as an atrocity. But the situation in Egypt is especially contradictory, and untying the social-political knots of the revolution requires avoiding pre-packaged catchphrases. (text/plain)

text Wall Street plunders Detroit while pensioners take blame Systemic Disorder 2013-08-07 8:41 PM
In North America, Detroit fulfills the same function as Greece does for Europe: A scapegoat. Larger economic and social forces, disinvestment and financial industry legerdemain are the major factors in Detroit’s financial struggles as Wall Street used complex, and poorly understood, derivatives to extract money through “heads I win, tails you lose” tactics.

text A Path Forward for Egypt’s Revolution Shamus Cooke 2013-08-06 9:55 AM
The battle for the future of Egypt is underway, and it’s chaos. There has been violence on both sides of the divide, with the military inflicting the heaviest doses on supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. The violence combined with any lack of long-term solution could bode poorly for Egypt’s future, but the situation is in extreme flux, and by no means anywhere settled. There is still abundant hope for most Egyptians to achieve a better world, though time is of the essence. (text/plain)

Egyptians are making history at a frantic pace. After the largest protests in Egypt’s history initiated the downfall of the first Muslim Brotherhood government, a military-led massacre of Muslim Brotherhood faithful quickly altered the political dynamic. Everything is in flux. (text/plain)

text Closing Guantanamo—Why it’s Symbolically, Spiritually and Materially Important. Scott Skein 2013-05-05 8:37 PM
President Barack Obama has made a clear and convincing case for closing Guantanamo! Mostly the same reasons finally articulated were just as true when he initially took office. Closing the stigma of war, crime and national shame has always been a high agenda item for many Americans. It is now the watermark battle ground that could begin to show who or what really runs this country. But think of the mindless excuses from war hawks (including complicity by the mainstream media) to try to stop any transparency about Guantanamo prisoners. But there is simply no way President Obama can close this base on his own without major and active U.S. citizen and world support. How can Congress possibly stand in the way of the reasons President Obama announced for closing the Bush Legacy? Where is the Free Speech movement, where are the campus protests at Madison and Kent State Ohio? (text/plain)

text The SF LGBT Pride Committee Has Nothing to Be Proud of Over Bradley Manning Adam Richmond 2013-05-02 3:04 AM

Manning is the gay service member charged with giving WikiLeaks thousands of classified documents exposing U.S. atrocities in Iraq, along with other materials. (text/plain)

On April 11 over 400 people packed the third public Portland Budget Hearing, which was organized by the City of Portland and which left many spilling out beyond the room where the hearing took place. More importantly, for the City Council there was an unexpected critical outpouring from the vast majority who attended. For the first time, the City Council and Mayor Charlie Hales began to lose control over their attempts to sell austerity. (text/html)

So Is That Right?
It's been said politicians enjoy kicking the can down the road instead of having to take political risks. It's said they believe that is what helps them get elected and to stay in power. As long as they believe it won't cost them anything, politicians don't mind acting or making decisions. We know how scared they can be to make good on what they often say, and that saying anything to get into office and stay there, comes with the territory. (image/jpeg)

text Where the Hell is the Progressive Rebel Party? William Wraithwrite 2010-10-22 6:22 PM
Teabaggers are being “bagged” back into the same old two party system—that is not just corrupted but corroded—so the joke will ultimately be on them—exactly in the same way that the joke was on progressives, who equally thought a corporate owned “top-down” Democratic Party was going to deliver a new deal of any kind—even as the bottom up got many of them elected into office.

Talking Points Don’t Always Work
Recently we have had a wave of politicians who’ve seemed to be more talking points driven than anything else. It’s an election year, so, yes, they’re all sticking to their talking points and there is nothing new about that. But, when there are candidates who have memorized their talking points and a few sentences related to the talking points, yet don’t seem to know anything about those talking points it does give one pause. If they are capable of no more than repeating some memorized phrases, then what is it they really believe in? Why are they running? (image/jpeg)

Don’t Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining
For months now we’ve been hearing about the coming revolution. Maybe, more like just over a year. At first we didn’t believe anything about it. We thought it would pass - most of us anyway. For those of us pacing around, worried about where the money to pay the bills would come from, catching a bus to wherever to follow a script written up by… well, nobody knew who at the time, really didn’t seem practical.

Prof. Jose Maria Sison: On the Commemoration of September 21
PHILIPPINES: Ferdinand Marcos himself designated September 21, 1972 as the date for Presidential Proclamation 1081, declaring martial law. In previous days, he had set in motion the imposition of fascist dictatorship on the people, including the mobilization of his armed minions, the murder of a whistle blower in his own intelligence agency, the fake ambush on his defense secretary and the mass arrest of his opponents and critics.
