The Need for “Scholarships” Marks the Class Separation
Whenever "scholarships" are required for anything, you can be guaranteed classism is present. Scholarships are a band-aid at best. As the classism that originally *caused* the need for a separate system for the poor to participate, remains.

IMPEACH BUSH NOW! 03.08.2004 00:25
ABB is Loyalism, is anti-democracy, is completely wrongheaded and foolish
Voting is meant to be a judgement and a command, not a plea, not a wish, not a pledge, not a bribe, not a cajole, not an entreaty, not even a deal or a contract, but a JUDGEMENT AND COMMAND. ABB is nothing less than a complete abdication of the ultimate sovereign power of the People, hence a complete renunciation of democracy.

Bush puts us in a room of fun-house mirrors
The impulse to control the press hardly originated with George W. Bush, but his administration has been less inclined than any in memory to echo Thomas Jefferson's famous declaration: "The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."

Crisis in the San Francisco Green Party
The SF delegation and Medea Benjamin—who was not elected by the chapter but received a delegate's credential—joined this national group of apparatchiks. They cast their votes for Cobb in open defiance of the 75% of Green voters in California who chose Camejo, who ran in the primaries (and received 33,000 votes) standing as a proxy for Nader

The Green Left
After the Milwaukee Convention of the Green Party, most leaders of the Green Party have lined up to oppose and denounce the Demogreens, who rigged the Convention with fake delegations and stuffed the ballot boxes with the votes of unknown small bureaucrats.

David Cobb was successful in defeating the endorsement of Ralph Nader-Peter Camejo, but he does not seem to be acquiring much capital out of it. In fact, it's possible that his candidacy will deprive the Green Party of its ballot status in several states, as he is not likely to overcome the death kiss of the one percentile candidates.

Ever since the Milwaukee convention, many on the left (both within and outside

Anybody But Bush (ABB) crowd, and a sign of the Green Party turning itself into
an appendage of the Democrats.

[Boston] The millionaires are dancing now. The balloons are falling on John Kerry, John Edwards and their nuclear families.

They're playing "Johnnie B. Goode" over the loudspeakers. Democrats are hopping up and down like JFK never went to Dallas; like Bill Clinton didn't blow it for us; like there's a chance to bring the boys home alive; like America can crawl out of Dick Cheney's bunker and look at the sun again.

But has Johnnie Kerry been good so far?

"I Had an Abortion"
Barbara Ehrenreich argues that women should own up to our abortions in her New York Times column. We can begin doing so by wearing a beautiful "I Had an Abortion" T-shirt made available by Planned Parenthood -- the T-shirt denounced by anti-abortion right-wing groups. The designer of the T-shirt, Jennifer Baumgardner, is also "making a documentary called I Had an Abortion that features women who don't regret having abortions."

Why You Should Vote for Kerry

In spite of those very dark truths, here is why you should vote for Kerry.

Tre Arrow granted refugee status
Unclear what impact this will have. Any attorneys who can submit an analysis?

Interesting how the media was so eager to call Tre an 'eco-terrorist' in the past when the FBI was actively spoonfeeding them that line, and now he's more often called an 'environmental activist.' It has become clear that the FBI and media unfairly biased the case against Tre by using the 'T' word so loosely for accusations of vandalism. Its a very real thing that Tre can't get a fair trial in the US.

It's interesting to watch the way that CNN, Fox, NBC, and the rest of the mainstream media these days...

"He gave a very impressive speech, but it's important to remember how carefully staged these speeches are..."

"He did a great job of trying to outplay the right to the right..."

"Kerry... A whole bunch of gibberish..."

"It sounded like a temp agency saying 'Help is on the way.'"

"This paranoid, Michael Mooer mentality..."

Medea Benjamin Loses Her Innocence At Democratic Snakepit
As Teresa Heinz Kerry spoke last night, on the floor of the convention, Medea Benjamin from Global Exchange and CodePink unfurled a pink colored banner that read "End the Occupation of Iraq." That apparently was not one of the DNC-approved messages of the night because within moments of the banner being unfurled, police were called in to remove Medea Benjamin.

Benjamin was dragged off the convention floor and thrown out of the FleetCenter. She said that the DNC was asked whether they wanted her arrested and that they decided that would not look good.
