Organize! If you are Latino, Black, Native, Female, or Union American!

Those who want to enslave you, reassert elitism, and exert complete sway over America will never give up. The only way to keep this nation free and democratic is to organize to vote for freedom and democracy. If you have “recall” rights in your state – exercise then now and get ready for next election. Those who sat out the 2010 races, do so again and you may not have another chance to be free and equal again.

Inherently Unequal by Lawrence Goldstone

After the Civil War, the United States seemed poised to grant equal rights to African-Americans. But the Supreme Court’s rulings in the late 19th century kept African-Americans segregated for decades, says constitutional scholar Lawrence Goldstone.

Remember Polio – I do. If you don’t vaccinate, you may know it too.

Millions live today without having to fear many diseases because of past vaccination campaigns. Blindly fearing vaccinations out of love and fear for your your children can cause more harm for all children. Life is not easy and there are no guarantees but without vaccinations many children will die or be permanently harmed by what could have been prevented.

As a child of the 1950s I well remember a time when American kids by the tens of thousands were still being crippled – and sometimes killed – by polio. In the 1950s, the fear of polio was palpable across the nation.

There were hospital wards filled with polio-paralyzed children trapped in iron lungs (a grim technology many younger adults have no memory of), which were used to keep them alive.

News break: Slaughter will reintroduce PAMTA

Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), Congress’s only microbiologist, said late today that she plans shortly to reintroduce PAMTA, the Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act, a timely move given the collapsing antibiotic market (see this morning’s post) and continuing reports of resistance moving off farms (as in this post).

PAMTA would direct the FDA to re-examine its approvals of veterinary antibiotics that are close analogs of ones used in humans, because they can stimulate the development of resistant organisms.

Dumb n Dumber take over Arizona state government! Want guns on campus!

Are there not sane people in Arizona – who will go to the Capitol and tell these legislators to get real? Have they all been standing too long in the sun without a hat on?

Amplify’d from www.wiretapmag.org

Early this January, a 22-year-old former Arizona community college student named Jared Lee Loughner walked into the parking lot of a grocery store near Tucson, took out a gun and shot nineteen people—six of them fatally.

Now the Arizona State Senate is considering a law that would make it easier to carry a concealed weapon onto the state’s college campuses—including Loughner’s own alma mater, Pima Community College.

Afghanistan: Time for everyone to come home in peace?

1939-1945 – that’s almost 6 years to fight an actual world war. 2001-2011 US and allied nations fighting in Afghanistan. Something wrong with this picture? Read what this former elected official in Germany has to say after visiting/researching Afghanistan since 1980. Maybe has has learned something that Americans, as well as Germans need to know.

Why Germany Must End its Deployment in Afghanistan

A Commentary by Jürgen Todenhöfer

The first lie says we’re there to fight international terrorism.
The second lie is that we’re there to defend our civilization’s values.
The third lie is that we prioritize civilian reconstruction over military activities.
The fourth lie is that we’re in the Hindu Kush to prevent the return of the Taliban for good.

Montgomery, Alabama is for you on Saturday – if you want to return to racism!

Post racial America? Not in Montgomery, Alabama on Saturday! They will be telling lies and yearning for times when no one even thought about Black-American voting but wanted to hang on to getting 3/4 of a person “credit” for Black-Americans when figuring seats in Congress and then decided to try and have a slavery country of their own.

Free speech – sure but I want them to hear that I think they are fools and not to be fully trusted – still.

This coming Saturday, the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) is holding a major event to honor the sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, of the beginning of the Civil War. The festivities will “commemorate” events that most Americans see as a terribly dark period in American history: “the founding of the Confederate States of America, the inauguration of Jefferson Davis and the raising of the first Confederate Flag.

Second Look Behind the Headlines

Culture War, Class War

Culture War is Class War disguised. The Wealthy Elite--the "Filthy Rich"--foment Culture War in society to distract and cover their real economic motives. Culture War, Class War explores the resulting cultural divide--how it was instigated and kept alive for fifty years in America by certain elite powers and how and why they choose to benefit while tearing families in two and keeping America paralyzed.
