Happy Loyalty Day
If no one reports on it does that mean it never happened? I couldn't find a word about May Day demonstrations in the NY Times or on the News Hour. Guess there was lots of other important stuff like Obama's surprise visit to Afghanistan and probably some other financial stuff. Speaking of POTUS, it was nice to see he declared May 1 Loyalty Day.I was just getting used to Law Day but now they'll have to update school texts. Our own gathering down at the park was less-than-inspiring in any sort of working class way. A couple of guys showed up with their single issue petitions, end corporate personhood, make marijuana legal. Everyone signed because that is "doing something political". Real Action on the Issues! The potato salad and dogs were great, as is the "thick satin quilt" that keeps us so cozy. After all the talk, the level of understanding has only increased microscopically. With legal pot the people are happy. Or a return to the gold standard or no corporate money in elections.Sorry Frank Little, Albert Spiers, Emma, Woody, we are doing the best we can under difficult conditions. I am finding some good discussion on the new International Organization for a Participatory Society site but membership seems to have stalled around 1500. Check it out and join, costs ya nothing and might bring emancipation. The Newshour did do an interesting piece on the difficulty high school science teachers are facing teaching climate science. The American Taliban is recruited by the capitalists to insist on "teaching both sides". Because, you know, gravity is just a "theory" and if God wanted us to eat more pizza, he would have made Herman Cain a little slicker, like mitt.The next thing you know godless commie teachers will be brainwashing their students into thinking the profit motive drives denialism. That's hardly an intelligent design.
