Many candidates, corporate media obscures U.S. presidential politics
Third political parties do not compete on a level playing field in U.S. politics; the corporate media will spend more money in one day, promoting the campaigns of Senators John McCain, Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, than the amount of money third political parties will spend in one year to promote their candidates, combined. While third party candidates are spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on flyers and brochures, big corporations are spending millions to keep the names of their candidates in the public's view.

Conscientious Objector Status—Who Should Decide?
It is a fallacious and legalistic straw man ploy for any society or organization (such as the Department of Defense) to arrogate, as definition, that an individual must oppose "all" war on religious or ethical grounds to be considered a "conscientious objector". Simply to be "conscientious" means to act from one's "own" conscience—not from the collective hearsay of any particular group or on legalistic grounds of some corporate presumption. The individual conscience is the moral compass of conscientious authority.

Everywhere in the world the contradiction is always more striking between the human needs and the needs of Capital, and profit. Grim murderous merry-go-round of stock exchanges and markets, cynical and murderous calendar of adjustment structural plans, all this implies for our class always more misery, deprivation, daily and generalized poisoning. Capital's catastrophe speeds up and it's always our class that picks up the tab!

The campaign of deception, otherwise known as America's war on terrorism, drags on, with this latest ploy of allowing the Iraqi government to decide for us whether to attack Iran, or not. The alleged "date-stamped weapons" gambit involves using Iranian weaponry obtained from America's allies in the Badr Brigade, to claim that the Mahdi Army of Muqtada al-Sadr is working with Iran to topple the Iraqi government.

At exactly 10:10pm, 3 very loud jets were heard soaring over SE Portland.

The Three-Worlds Theory was used to justify Chinese alliances with right-wing reactionary governments during the 1970s and 1980s.

At a gathering of counter- cultural types a few months ago , a question was asked of the featured speaker : " why the hell are we ( homo sapiens ) here ?"
The question was asked with regard to the fact that we are the only critters on the planet that have developed the ability and the arrogance to seriously harm entire ecosystems in pursuit of our self interest , the same systems that are essential to all life on this rock !
Not long after the question was posed , a spontaneous reply emanated from somewhere in the audience : " WE ARE HERE TO - BURN - ! "

It is world in which there is one master, one sovereign. And at the end of the day this is pernicious not only for all those within this system, but also for the sovereign itself because it destroys itself from within."

Socialists: Working people don’t need stimulus checks
The recent action taken by President Bush and the Feds, to reduce the time that 130 million Americans will need to wait before receiving their welfare checks, is another indication of the critical state the U.S. economy is now experiencing. Socialists believe it is necessary to create good paying jobs for working people rather than mailing millions of people a one time welfare check. Socialists have called for higher minimum wages and developing socially useful jobs for all working people.

These companies are as merciless as America's war contractors and Big Pharma industries.

Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) continues to vote to fund it to the tune of $514 billion. Her excuse is that she "supports the troops." Vietnam War veteran, nurse and Peace activist, Ms. Madeleine Mysko, isn't buying Mikulski's dubious line. She wants the war ended and the troop brought safely back home, now.

The march was led by elders and stopped for drumming and singing at a few major intersections, causing massive traffic jams.

Why the Leninists Will Win
The following article was written by a radical in the United States last summer. Although it deals with a different context, we felt that it raised problems and situations that have relevance for us here in Canada too. So we reprint the article here as a contribution to the discussion that many of us are engaging in at the present time. We anarchists and Syndicalists - indeed all who believe that the liberation of the workers is the task of the workers themselves - were too poorly organized and too weak to hold the revolution on a straight course towards socialism.

All Out on May Day!
On May 1, all 29 ports on the U.S. West Coast are to be shut down by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) in protest against the U.S. war on Afghanistan and Iraq. This is a historic event of international significance: labor action against imperialist war by a major American union. The strategically placed port workers in the ILWU can bring commerce with Asia to a grinding halt, and they're about to demonstrate it. The maritime employers are already screaming, and you can bet it's got the attention of the warmongers in Washington. All labor should take up the challenge this poses: For workers strikes against the war! Meanwhile, immigrants' rights groups are once again mobilizing on May Day. And on April 30 and May 1, the independent truckers who move cargo to and from the docks may play an important role in a shutdown. The imperialist war on Afghanistan and Iraq is also a war on immigrants, minorities, working people and democratic rights "at home." We need to defeat this attack here and abroad, in opposition to both the capitalist war parties. The "antiwar movement," whose aim has always been to pressure the Democrats, is at a dead end. What's needed is working-class action independent of the bosses. What that takes is a fundamental break from the Democratic Party and the pro-capitalist politics that infuse the labor bureaucracy.

Some rightly protest that Hillary is indeed a whore—so what is the big deal?
