Completely OT---

Woman! Did you hear the news? The Coalition of Immokalee Workers kicked Taco Bell's ass! Yum Foods caved:

"Taco Bell will stop buying from the growers involved unless abuses are corrected. Farm workers will also be allowed to inspect the company's confidential business records to ensure that Yum is adhering to the terms of the deal."

There is a God after all.

How odd. I'm listening to the NPR story on that right now.

eR: Thanks for making such a painful issue really funny. The fake diary was a stroke of genius.

I was just telling a friend the other day that, taking after gov't (esp. Bush), next time I screw up or get caught with my hand in the cookie jar, I'll form a committee run by a friend who owes me a favor. Then, when I discover that I've disappointed people, I'll promote myself.

Forgot to mention the important part: The plans for Iraq and its oil that Greg Palast unearthed a while back. Totally unreported in the US nat'l media, and given these memos it makes even more sense than it did at first.

Brilliant post Robin! Thanks for saying all that needs to be said!

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
