  1. Gee, I don’t work as hard as Bill Gates. I guess that makes him working class, and me not. I wish him the best of luck.

  2. For what its worth, this is also the 232nd anniversary of the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati by Adam Weishaupt.

  3. Very good news this MayDay from the Longshoremen on the West Coast who shut down the major ports to protest the “criminal war in Iraq”

    Siun @ 3: My god! I didn’t know about that until you told me. That’s HUGE. That is the first political strike in, wow, I can’t even think how long. The difference between a political strike and an economic strike is, as Twain would say, the difference between the lightning and the lightning bug. An economic strike is an action against a specific employer; a political strike is a direct challenge to the State by the proletariat.

    Thanks for posting that. This is the biggest news I’ve heard in a long time!

  7. To all my brothers and sisters who work too hard for masters to whom they are less important than their caddies; I salute you!

  8. SKSB – it is pretty amazing … I was very moved by the response from the Iraqi union leaders who responded with a strike at two Iraqi ports and who wrote:

    Let us hold hands for the victory of our struggle.

    Long live the port workers in California!

    Long live May Day!

    Long live International solidarity!

    I saw that too. This may be the beginning of something big.

  10. Interesting and pertinent post at The Edge of the American West.

  11. OT but while workers were uniting US forces bombed the main hospital in Sadr City this morning – another brave blow for democracy and all that

    no fatalities but at least 20 wounded (mostly women and children coming to visit relatives) and most of the ambulances destroyed

    over 900 Iraqis killed by US forces in the past 4 weeks in Sadr City alone – that does not count the devastation of the ongoing US siege which blocks food, water and medical care
