Some days, an Afghan woman tells us, even your skin does not fit right

Poems are like the blues – they let you get it all out and at the same time share it with others who feel the same and let them release their hurt as well. Well done.

No One…

No one knows how it feels to be so sad
No one knows how it hurts to live so alone
To walk on a dark path
No one sees when your heart is broken
No one cares if you have pain
When your dreams are taken
No one takes your hand when you are fallen
No one knows how you are
exhausted of living
or listens if you cry, “the world is selfish!”
No one loves a mad girl
No one wants a sad girl
No one cares if the cruelty doesn’t finish

Nevada’s Angle Takes Lessons from the Racist George Wallace of Old.

She’ll not be outdone, it seems, in slamming Latinos and anyone she can smear for thinking they are as human as Anglos.

Latina Lista

Latest political ad by Nev. GOP Angle slanders all Latinos — she should be sued!

One of the highly objectionable lines in the ad says that “waves of illegal aliens are streaming across our border joining violent gangs and forcing families to live in fear.”

Every picture of these “illegal aliens” is one showing Latino youth. The family living in fear is Anglo.

The insinuations and implications made in this ad are not just highly insulting — they’re slanderous.

Will we raise up a new fear mongering Un-American Activities Hearings As We Did in 1950s?

It was a strange time – one that some today would like to start again. Fear of others, is a great way to keep people’s eyes off the fact that you are shipping their jobs overseas, or moving to make this or that group second-class citizens. Keep your eyes and ears open.

Industrial-Agriculture Monopolists (Oligopoly) Rig Market – Hunger is the Result

‘Food Empires Creating Agricultural Crisis’
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Oct 18, 2010 (IPS) – Forget speculators, forget biofuel farmers. The real cause behind the permanent
food and agricultural crisis is the imperial food regime, squeezing money out of
agriculture, a Dutch professor says.
Where does the difference go to? “To food empires,” Van der Ploeg says. “The
market is more and more dominated by industrial trade conglomerates, like
Ahold, Nestle, Cargill, and many more, governing production, processing,
distribution and consumption of food. Those empires are able to manipulate
markets and squeeze wealth out of agriculture. In this regime, small
disequilibria in the markets translate into huge price fluctuations.”
