A General Strike?

http://portside.org/2017-02-06/whose-strike

THIS IS A GOOD PIECE,  A General Strike?  'GET SOBER FOLKS' .


I'm interested in movement organizing strategy... lots of people discussing this topic right now.  If

the 9th Circuit does right will Trump ignore the decision.....sort of Andy Jackson reborn from the Bank Fight and the Indian cases of the mid 1830s?  

I watched the NPR show tonight on the Oklahoma bombing of 1995. Amazing how much force the cops used and the resources they had, which turned them all into boneheads on steroids who drove McVeigh nuts. 168 Dead!

The way thinks are going, that Reichstag moment could comer soon than we may have anticipated.  Labor is too weak in numbers and political strength to lead the United Front, and the broader post Woman's March movement is too inchoate at this point to fully predict how it will emerge ?  Yet, I'm optimistic.  I have visited or done a little work with a few different organizations recently, and there are large numbers of people getting involved, perhaps more than were coming forth in the 1968-72 period?  It sort of feels that way.  However, we also must be consider that there may be great danger ahead.   A serious terrorist event may lead to a state of emergency and "his illegitimacy" will rule by fear.

A Translation of Inaugural Address- by Frederick Foote

Dear Readers, you may have missed Donald Trumps’ inaugural address out of antipathy and disgust. However, the address was very revealing if you understand Trump Speak. Trump Speak is a dialect that has its foundation in misinformation, exaggeration, lies, bellicose bombast, and self-promotion.

This vernacular assumes that the one correct view of the world is Trumps. And every other perspective is not just wrong but is a treasonous affront to Trump and, therefore, a seditious insult to the nation.

I’m far from an expert in Trump Speak, but I have provided my translation of the inaugural hectoring on Across the Margin at:

Dear Water Protectors:

On January 18th, the Department of the Army published in the Federal Register its Notice of Intent to require an Environmental Impact Statement.

This is another small victory in defeating the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.

The fight, however, is still not over.

While the EIS is exactly what we called for, we must ensure that it fully takes into consideration tribal treaty rights, natural resources, cultural and sacred places, socio-economical concerns, and environmental justice.

We need your continued support as this process moves forward.

Submit a comment to the Civil Works Division, and help us show the Army that #MillionsStandWithStandingRock

BLOG DOWN BUT WE AREN"T

Blog is under construction again, sorry for gallery closures, will be back up with new  (and old) soon.

Next up today- WORLD WideWomen's March

We better come up with something soon besides demonstrations, protests, and legalities as the mainstay of a long overdue and long term REVOLUTION. No guns cuz we'll lose, no violence cuz we'll lose, no more historical artiFACTS cuz we need to start anew.

The Workers by themselves aren't going to save anybody, nor is Women, nor is Black, nor is White, nor is RED, White, and Blue, nor is just you, nor is just me individually and certainly not MONEY.

I don't know what it is but neither does anyONE else.

All I know is, it is 2017 and I can't tell the difference between that and 1717 except there are more cars. ( In reality, I do believe we know more about real FREEDOM than we ever did) and that's a GOOD start.

I think it has something to do with COMMUNITY rather than Federalism, LOCAL rather than Patriotism......you rather than me and me rather than you (if you know what I mean). More like Just and Free ReCIPROCITY

Dump the Constitution because it has ceased to be a relevant document for a working democracy, or dump all the legislators who have made a living from obscurantism and obstruction keep the bill of rights because that's all we're fighting for nowadays anyway.

READY SET GO....
