THE RED FLAGTHE RED FLAG9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The people's flag is deepest red,
It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
and ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
their hearts blood dyed its every fold.
then raise the scarlet standad high
within its shade we'll live and die,
thogh cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
we'll keep the red flying here.
look round,the Frenchman loves its blaze,
the sturdy German chants its praise,
In Moscow's vaults its hymns are sung
Chicago swells the surging throng.
It waved above our infant might,when all ahead seemed dark as night;
It witnessed many a deed and vow,
we must not change its colour now.
It well recalls the triumphs past,
It gives the hope of peace at last;
the banner bright,the symbol plain,
of human right and human gain.
It suits today the weak and base,
whose minds are fixed on pelf and place
to cringe before the rich man's frown,
and haul the sacred amblem down.
with heads uncovered swear we all
to bear it onward till we fall;
come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
this song shall be our parti

I was watching your show on September 1, 2010, and as usual you mentioned Dr. Martin Luther King, speaking of Dr. King would be proud. I shall touch back on this
You were speaking of Dolores Huerta, when speaking of her you said that she was also investigated for being a communist, so was Dr. Martin Luther King.
You spoke of her quote of something to the affect of capitalism being an alternative to democratic socialism, might I also remind you of Dr. King's quote of
"You can't talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can't talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of slums. You're really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry.... Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means

Why Free Market Capitalism FailsIn this essay, I expose the flaws in the two mechanisms that are supposed to power the free market: Adam Smith's invisible hand and trickle down economics. The notion of the invisible hand holds that in a free marketplace, the buyer's self-interest will tend to drive the price down, while the seller's self-interest will tend to drive the price up, so that both parties' self-interest will naturally cause the price to settle on an amount that both find reasonable. Trickle-down economics maintains that the rich are the ones who start and expand businesses and hire employees, so the laws should favor them increasing their wealth as much as possible so they can hire more people, thus growing the economy.Why Free Market Capitalism Fails3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

É um sítio novo para ele. A maresia, o som das ondas a bater, o céu estrelado. Tudo isto o convida para aquela praia abandonada, nesta noite em que ele procura por algo que nunca mais vai encontrar. Conforme desce os degraus que levam ao areal, é assaltado pelas recordações, pela tristeza que o leva a querer refugiar-se de tudo e de todos. Explodindo em lágrimas sem aviso, sente a força a esvair-se do seu corpo para dar lugar ao desespero. De todas as imagens, de todas as palavras que lhe aparecem em forma de questões, ele só consegue responder com outra questão: "Porquê??!!" E grita uma, duas, infindáveis vezes à espera de uma resposta. Mas a única resposta vem do mar. Ora furioso e imponente. Depois de rebentar em fúria as suas ondas na praia, era calmo e sereno, no momento em que a àgua é chamada de volta para mais uma vez dar lugar à fúria. Como se hipnotizado por este ciclo, o seu i

QUANDO UM AMO-TE DIZ MUITO POUCO...
São os olhares tímidos ou desinibidos, que falam numa conversa muda e intermitente. São os beijinhos na testa, prova de respeito e carinho, de manhã ao nascer do sol e à tarde quando este se põe. São as mãos entrelaçadas e os sorrisos esboçados. É a sinceridade dos momentos, a intensidade com que os mesmos acontecem. É um sentimento não escrito, não vociferado ou prometido, apenas e somente sentido entre duas metades, dois opostos que, juntos, formam o encaixe perfeito do puzzle por completar. São dois corações ritmados ao som de uma única melodia, compassados pelos olhares e sorrisos partilhados entre a calma das madrugadas e a agitação dos dias sem descanso. É uma alma repartida por dois corpos; os pedacinhos de vida compartidos por ambos. É um ele e uma ela, um nada separados. São um eles, um tudo, um amo-te que nada diz perante o tan

It is not about going further to socialism, it is about going further into what America use to be about. It is not about welfare programs, it is about building your nation.
Let us look at reality, education has been cut nearly every year for several decades, and yet we wonder why we are falling so quickly in literacy rates. Yet when people say we should give more money to education you hear NO, SOCIALISM!!!! GOVERNMENT INDOCTRINATION!!!
Government indoctrination to wish to educate people, more money to allow for more teachers, which would allow for smaller class sizes which is said by ALL accounts, left and right to be an ideal learning environment
Well socialism is not really that "far left"... depends upon what type of socialism you are referring to, universal socialism which can be equated with communism is very far left where as national socialism which is a nice misnomer for fascism is very far right.

What is Democratic Socialism?What is Democratic Socialism?3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democraticallyto meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.
Doesn't socialism mean that the government will own and run everything?
Democratic socialists do not want to create an all-powerful government bureaucracy. But we do not want big corporate bureaucracies to control

Why not politics? Hm let us discuss the new tea party starlet Christine O'Donnell
Christine O'Donnell's group that she started and runs, wants abstinence taught in school, her organization or rather a member from the organization also wants sex education removed from schools
Since sex education has been shown to be in direct correlation between decrease in STD's, pregnancies and high school drop our because of the aforementioned should I take O'Donnell's people seriously?
Then again since this is the same Christine O'Donnell that says condoms have been shown to have no affect on the lowering or stopping the spread of Aids/HIV should she even be taken seriously at all?
Like my friend that I spoke of before, who doubted the idea of evolution or rather was ignorant of what evolution actually said; O'Donnell is another person that does not believe in evolution becaus

Sorry We Shot Your Kid...Sorry We Shot Your Kid, But Here's $500Sorry We Shot Your Kid...8 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
For the entire war in Iraq, the press has been kept largely in the dark concerning the number of civilians killed by our forces, and what happened in the aftermath. Now several hundred files posted online reveal some of the true horror while raising questions about lack of compensation.
Here you will find, for example, that when the U.S. drops a bomb that goes awry, lands in an orchard, and does not detonate -- until after a couple of kids go out to take a look -- our military does not feel any moral or legal reason to compensate the family of the dead child because this is, after all, broadly speaking, a "combat situation."
Also: What price (when we do pay) do we place on the life of a 9-year-old boy, shot by one of our soldiers who mistook his book bag for a bomb satchel? Would you believe $500? And when we shoot an Iraqi journalist on a bridge we shell out $2500 to his widow -- but why not the measly $5000 she had requested?

Don't ever just accept something, follow the evidence. Don't just accept there is evidence, study it, experience it firsthand, if possible. Think. Society stabilizes through doubt, not certainty, knowing leads to not trying, not learning. Knowing isn't really knowing, it's a combination of faith and apathy. Thinking is security, a blend of skepticism and activism, curiosity and caring, initiative and interaction. Don't just trust, justify rationally, and rationalize justly. Trust is good, only if it is trustworthy. Don't just know, think.

Na tua mesa de cabeceira estão os livros que, desgastados, esperam a sua vez.
Nos teus olhos, uma lágrima, que não pretende mostrar-se.
Não, não era isto que querias quando o beijaste pela primeira vez.
Não era isto que querias quando lhe disseste ao ouvido "Amo-te".
Fechas os olhos, tentando aprisionar a tua dor.
Mas os olhos não cessam de te mostrar imagens dos tempos em que, sorrindo, ele te dizia:
Voltas-te para um lado, voltas-te para o outro.
Os gritos na tua cabeça não te deixam dormir.
Aquele adeus atormenta-te.
Não podes esquecê-lo.
Ele levou o teu coração, mas não quis o resto.
Como é que um anjo pode atirar-te ao inferno?
O sono chega, e com ele os sonhos que aliviam a alma.
Sonhos de quando ainda o podias beijar.
Quando de quando ainda lhe dizias ao ouvido "Amo-te".
