My favorite Kareoke Song...

Like the old days... in the back yard...

Really rough weekend. Hope this week goes better. Still don't have permission to lift weights. Gonna keep walking.

Last week was a bad week for "progressives" -
Air America shut down...
Ted Kennedy's seat went Republican?
The candidate that didn't accept campaign finance reform for his election wants to counter the selling of our political system to corporations by the Supreme Court.
And even the banksters had a bad week.

The 40th Anniversary of La Raza Unida party was Sunday. I spent some time thinking about third parties in the US and how that works. At the same time I couldn't get away from discussion about the election for Ted Kennedy's seat.

One of the main discussions - besides about the Dems not being aggressive enough - was the voting machines. Happy Democracy!!!

It was good to hear a lot of MLK speech excerpts where commentators were trying to show why he was assassinated.

Keep Lefting!!!

I really enjoy this song. It is perfect for my mood today.

I'm waiting for a job offer to be made. I hope it comes through soon. Making me nervous.

I hope I haven't posted too many dates with '09 still.

Things are fairly well. Had some good news yesterday and today. I need to take care of some financial stuff. I will post more tomorrow.

In the meantime please realize that Sarah Palin's show will be Simulcast in English... For those pendejo-speak impaired folks of course.

Keep Lefting!

Wow! Things are going very well today... Didn't see that coming.

Going to try and get accupuncturist to get release me for weightlifting. In the meantime I have some very important transitioning to do. Essentially the same job, different place. Hopefully goes well.

I leave with a quote:

"The greatest weapon of mass destruction is corporate economic globalization" -- Kenny Ausubel.

Things are generally OK. I need to get more sleep, but I think I'll be back at lifting soon. Until then, lots of stretching and walking.

I read an interesting definition of class policy, and I'll post the reference when I remember who wrote it. It is that when a policy benefits the powerful classes at the detriment of the working-classes. I think even policies in reverse are class policies. I think it is just that class seems to be hidden so much that we don't get it for the most part.

In this regard, the policy that punishes people for car theft based on the value of the vehicle is a class policy. If you rip off a working-class person who may not be able to afford an urban assault vehicle then the crime is less than ripping off some middle-class tank. So someone who may not be able to replace their vehicle as easily is a reduced crime than to rip off someone who may have more resources.

Next thing you know you'll get less time for white-collar crime than taking $17 from Allsups!

Proportional Representation and Health

Monday, January 04, 2010

Happy 2010!

I had the privilege of reading "The Spirit Level" over the holidays thanks to my awesome daughter and son.

I've been listening to the radio some while I was officially off work and noticed that there was so much attention placed on a failed bombing attempt and very little to issues of equity in our society (Not that THAT issue gets much coverage anyway). It reminded me something I learned in some class - that media doesn't tell you what to think, but what to think about.

So my resolution is to use the blogs I write for to present information on equity and health for 2010. I may start to sound like a broken record, but it may be useful. I started on Facebook. Interesting how people know very well the arguments against equity. There was one about equity only works in small societies. Another said democracy was a utopian dream. And another that greed is all the way down to our cells. It's going to be an interesting year!

Keep Lefting!!!
