response to "A Self-Organization Strategy for Revitalizing the Left"

Steve D'Arcy begins by asking why the left is no longer a force to be reckoned with in U.S. politics, noting the usual answers such as corporate control of the media and funding of the major political parties but rejects them as insufficient in that they are obstacles of a type which the left used to be able to overcome. As we have seen elsewhere, the current lack of an organized leftist movement is being taken by some as proof that previous gains were merely tactical concessions on the part of capitalist powers who are now reaping the rewards of a successful endgame.

Hobby Lobby Mistake

Hobby Lobby may have made a big mistake. Their supreme court case is seen as an attack on womens rights. So, who are the vast majority of Hobby Lobby coustomers? WOMEN!! Hobby Lobby is no traditional hobby shop where males go for model trains, planes, and cars. It is largly a crafts store where women go for crafts and decorations. I would not be surprised to see women and men boycotting Hobby Lobby and going elsewhere for their craft needs. I would also not be surprised to see their profits dwindle to the point of bankrupcy.

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
