L'International Marathon

May Day is Friday! If you didn't know about the Internationale the metal version below didn't make sense. So here's some different versions!

Working out has been helping. Time off is the next goal.

Here is one of many good songs that make me feel like getting ready for May Day...

Worked out yesterday. That's been good to get back on a twice a week schedule. Walking afterward is tough, but seems to help!

I decided to apply for a Masters in Public Health! We'll see how that goes...

Oh yeah! And happy Mother Earth Day!!!

Mas Tea Bags

According to the news "thousands" of people turned out to tea bag yesterday. According to an eye witness account there wasn't more people than during the Peace demonstrations that the news reported as "hundreds."

That they led with crime stories, then the tea baggers, THEN something on NM being recognized for eliminating the death penalty internationally seems like a slant to me. What do you think?

Split in Tea Bag Movement

I was very saddened by the lack of depth that News 4 did on covering the Tea Bagging event in Albuquerque, I thought I would post something a little more in depth.

Social Democracy 4/8/09

Surely not in America. Well, Bill Moyers had an interesting conversation on it a couple of weeks back and here is a response - I Love Bill Moyers, but He's Wrong About Socialism.

The author's conclusion.

The left needs to help build grassroots movements and a political party that will confront the rule of corporations and Wall Street--something the Democratic Party cannot do no matter how much we push Obama to the left, given the place of finance and the corporations in the party. We need such movements, and an independent party that represents them, not only to wrest concessions and victories today but also so that people can learn how to truly govern themselves tomorrow. And along with activism, we need at least multiple sketches, if not a single blueprint, of a workable socialist future. If we are not inspired and guided by the vision of a socialist alternative, in the end the corrupt financial and political elites that have brought us to this point will continue to run the show.

And from a blog - Global Labor's Forgotten Plan to Fight the Great Depression.

In the early 1930s, as global unemployment tripled in two years and the world plunged into the Great Depression, the world’s labor movements developed a program for fighting the global crisis through international public works. It’s a little-known historical might-have-been that could have helped halt the Great Depression, the rise of Adolph Hitler, and the Second World War. And, as the efforts of world leaders to address today’s “Great Recession” threaten to break down in nationalist rivalry and petty political bickering, it bears lessons – and perhaps an alternative vision – for today.

Workers and organized labor have historically advocated government public works as a solution to unemployment. Not only would they provide jobs and income for those directly employed, but they would raise overall purchasing power, thereby creating demand for the products of other workers and creating a virtuous circle of economic growth. In the context of swelling unemployment in the early Depression, discussion of national public works programs developed in many countries.

Thanks for the recent comments! Those always provide more energy.

I'd like to play like this guy below, but realized that I am happy being a casual player. So I told my musical colleagues - the ones I work with - about taking a break until May 12, and from there not doing tons of rehearsals. We'll see how it goes.

Quote on Love

Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy nor fear. It is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve.

- Percy Byshe Shelley

Glad this didn't happen to my family. But UCSD really goofed!

Prayer Vigil

SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 7:00-9:00pm
Robinson Park (at downtown round-about)

Join us in circle and community to continue to celebrate the life of Amber A. Archibeque to acknowledge the circumstances that brought her precious life and the lives of so many women, to an abrupt end. We also celebrate the lives of Victoria Chavez, Michelle Valdez and her unborn baby, Cinnamon Elks, and Julie Nieto who were found on the Sacred Site/West Mesa Grave Site and the many other Women who are missing in Albuquerque.

We stand together to oppose the silence of violence against women, silence of sexual abuse, and the silence of addiction that feeds our pain and tears at our communities.

We come together in circle and community to restore hope, to amplify the voices of women, our struggles, and heal the current systems that perpetuate the cycles of poverty, addiction, sexual abuse, and violence in hope and action toward a better world for our children, families and communities.
Their loss is a perpetuation of the inattention and continued violence against women that WILL NOT GO UNVOICED!
