Dear friends: A march of 2,000 people took place last night, in San Francisco, against the genocidal attack on Fallujah, and in solidarity with 4,000 hotel workers who are locked out of their jobs by major hotel chains. The action was sponsored by International ANSWER and endorsed by the San Francisco Labor Council, and all other anti-war groups. Very militant, the marchers were in support of Iraqi people’s resistance and for US out of Iraq immediately. Another ANSWER action, in (...)

LABOR NEEDS "THAT VISION THING"
By : David Bacon - Thursday November 11, 2004
1 comment
By David Bacon There’s no question that labor pulled out all the stops to defeat George Bush. Over 2000 members of the country’s largest union, the Service Employees (SEIU), left their jobs to go campaign in battleground states, and the organization budgeted $65 million for the campaign. The AFL-CIO itself fielded 5000 fulltime staffers and 225,000 volunteers. That made Bush’s victory a hard one to swallow. For many of the most progressive leaders of US labor, (...)

The Optimism of Uncertainty

by Howard Zinn From an excerpt of Paul Rogat Loeb’s book "The Impossible Will Take a Little While": In this awful world where the efforts of caring people often pale in comparison to what is done by those who have power, how do I manage to stay involved and seemingly happy? I am totally confident not that the world will get better, but that we should not give up the game before all the cards have been played. The metaphor is deliberate; life is a gamble.

Dear Politicasso , We know many of you are angry and frustrated about the election last Tuesday, and are deeply concerned about the stories appearing online and in the news media about problems with the voting process in states like Ohio. As the New York Times said, "the mechanics of our democracy remained badly flawed ... the election system was far from what voters are entitled to." And, it sure appears that many Americans, once again, have lost confidence in our nation’s (...)

Vote Fraud likely in both President and Senate Races

Analysis of the Nation’s Senate races yield mores anomalies in favor of the Republicans. Looking at Florida’s election results, I noticed the Senate race was very close, with the Democrat Betty Castor losing in a nail-biter 49-48%, only 78,221 votes short. Then I noticed that the total number of votes for Senate was quite a bit less than in the presidential race. 253,105 people voted for president but failed to cast a ballot for senator. Interesting.... so I analyzed all of (...)

Why Kerry Conceded Defeat despite Electoral Fraud
By : Commentary - Tuesday November 9, 2004
9 comments
The easy smile on Kerry’s face as he conceded to Bush should have made a few things clear. There are reasons why Kerry conceded so quickly, there are reasons why he never mentioned a single instance of voter fraud or intimidation throughout the day on November 2nd as widespread evidence of disenfranchisement was surfacing (at least through independent media outlets) and there are reasons why he didn’t use his concession speech as an opportunity to articulate even mild (...)

Electronic voting angst

Interestingly, none of the complaining emailers took issue with the remarkable results out of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. In 29 precincts there, the County’s website shows, we had the most unexpected results in years: more votes than voters. I’ll repeat that: more votes than voters. 93,000 more votes than voters. === Firstly, John Kerry conceded. As I pointed out here Sunday, no candidate’s statement is legally binding- what matters is the state election commissions’ (...)

November 8, 2004 Kudos to Keith Olbermann of MSNBC. Finally, someone in the mainstream media took the story about the rampant evidence of election fraud to prime time. Following the tepid journalism from Chris Matthews, Olbermann reported tonight about the two major stories we have been following since election night. Olbermann first reported on the events in Warren County, Ohio on election night. Warren was one of the last counties to report and as such, directly contributed to the state (...)

BRIEF HISTORY OF ELECTION FRAUD IN AMERICA
By : Politicasso - Tuesday November 9, 2004
By Victoria Collier t r u t h o u t | Perspective "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty" —Thomas Jefferson In the 2000 election, George W. Bush stole the presidency by combining various forms of vote fraud, not all of which could be concealed from the American public. The month-long battle in Dade County ended with open slaughter of the democratic process, and the occupation of the country by a regime of what may be accurately described as corporate fascists.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
