    Oops. 133 was supposed to be posted by me personally, Anthony Noel. Brain fart. (Or maybe too many hits to the head!)

    great topic. The bottom line is that no helmet will prevent a concussion, because a concussion is the result of physics. The brain hits the side of the skull’s interior opposite that of where the head was struck (and often the same side as the contact as well if the blow was hard enough). The [...]

    Well that was quick. One more long weekend and it’s “Adieu, summer.” Meaning of course that next week, what we’ve increasingly taken to calling “silly season” begins. Its bombast will scream from our TVs and radios when we wake Tuesday morning, and it won’t stop for the next two months. What these news outlets won’t tell [...]

    Who knows how far this uprising will go

    My point exactly. And exactly how does your mind organize the citing of an actual, current example of what happens in the absence of plans for filling the power vacuum (an example you apparently STILL have not read) into

    dictating what they should do

    And suppose you convinced them that supporting an independent candidate with the Unified Platform was the correct tactic. That’s not how the NPA rolls generally, or in this particular case, although, given your own opposition to the NPA’s insistence that a primary candidate pledge not to support the president, I can understand why you might think [...]

    There’s no question they are doing fine, wayoutwest, at what they are doing. But did you even read the link? Do you see what’s happened in Egypt? Suddenly the military is declining to implicate Mubarak. If we – and by we, I mean the nascent movement in this country – really believe those commanders are [...]

    I love that you always cite Webster. It cracks me up. You have a sometimes annoying – and I assume completely unintentional – way of sounding like you’re putting words in diarists’ mouths, Jeff. Strategy is doubtless absolutely necessary. Though I’ve never claimed otherwise, a reading of your comment infers I have. The NPA has [...]

    The fact is there are no easy answers, as your series points out. But I’ll have to disagree; a platform is a plan, in the same way a blueprint is. It is a vision of what one intends to build. As any architect will tell you, blueprints get revised when the realities of what’s possible [...]

    The American people’s awakening to the carefully propagandized (yet iron-handed) oppression in which our ruling elites engage both at home and abroad – an awakening exemplified in the Occupy Wall Street action and a host of other planned occupations – is heartening indeed. But for all who side with full employment, peace, national self-sufficiency (versus [...]

    Tweak away, juliania; questions like yours open valuable discussions. I met with Jill a couple of weeks ago and we agreed that ending her involvement on the Steering Committee, should she decide to run, is the without question the right thing to do. I think the key word is “party.” While the NPA has (and [...]

She received over 350,000 votes, 18 percent of those cast. The NPA has benefited tremendously Jill’s from dedicated, hands-on involvement on our steering committee. As she mulls a [...]
