  •  Rushing again today! (6+ / 0-)

    Can't stay around, I'm attending a conference:

    WEST COAST SOCIALIST CONFERENCE  .. "Socialism vs. Capitalism 2013"
    It runs from last night  through Sunday.  Last night had 4 speakers to discuss how Capitalism depends structurally on "Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Islamaphobia, and Anti-Immigrant Discrimination."

    Glen Ford, Editor of "Black Agenda Report" was the lead-off speaker; I've been following his writings closely since soon after 9/11.  He was great.  You can find his writings, along with other writers on the web page at BAR.

    Because our current system of government seems to be locked into a straight jacket of dysfunction, and since this dysfunction appears to be consciously planned in order to maintain the status quo, I am searching for better solutions.  Thus far, "more and better" democrats hasn't gotten us out of our quagmire.  Will it be able to do so in future?  I don't know, but I do know I want to investigate and pursue other possibilities.

    Have a wonderful day all you Kossacks.  Although there is some pollution (particulate matter) in the air, the sun is out; and it's a pretty day.

      Welcome to the club. Wish I could attend, I'd like to hear Glen Ford speak. Please let us know if you find any interesting solutions or even remotely viable ideas for alternatives to the death-spiral dance in which our government seems to be engaged.
