I like your Bushisms of the week....Although I gotta tell ya, I would rather have less laughter in my life about the direction of this country....


On a side note, it was great that so many of you were supportive of the peace post idea and have now become supporters of Peace Train and Blue Republic. Thanks, PT Cruiser!!!!

We need some more of you..er, creative activism ideas too!!!

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

Oooo! This looks like fun!

Let me give it a shot!

Okay... ummm... Okay!

"I just want you to know that when we talk about sex, we're really talking about rape."

What? Is it something I said?

I just want everyone to know that when we are talking about sex we really mean rape.

(Just a small discrepency in cognative nuance, other than that we're all on the same page. Right?)

Could he even define peace?

He's really talking about war, a never ending war.

Bush isn't that stupid.

He's obviously read and memorized 1984.

The thing is, it's probably true. Stability in the middle east means profit for them. Peace, in the bourgeois sense.

That's why revolutionary violence is the only legitimate violence. It's the only side fighting for true peace.

Besides, can there be peace between the exploiters and the exploited, the have and have nots?
We have learned history is class struggle. We have learned class struggle is the "locomotive" of history.

The bourgeois have had their turn ruling the world. And they fucked it up. We are small and week, infant really, since our first steps at the Paris Commune to the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, we've been beaten back.

But we are the ones who should be optimistic. The bourgeoisie are losing their grips, losing their ability to rule, daily, hourly, by the minute. All the while we are learning, watching, and organizing.

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.

A spectre is haunting America -- the spectre of communism.
