League of Pissed Off Voters | Elections are psychological warfare. Our very own Malia Lazu is in the final three TONIGHT at 9pm on Showtime's American Candidate. Malia has survived 7 episodes. If she survives another week, she'll be on the talk shows. Then young people, people of color, OUR people will feel like: "Hey, we can win." She is up against a Republican dude who has a whole anti-choice network calling in for him. So this Sunday, find a friend with Showtime. Next Sunday, find a bar or home where you can watch the show, raise money, and register voters at the same time. It's very motivating to watch --and good practice for the real election. more... 10 Comments

from Newswire Reports | Several Arrests, Bikes Siezed, Police Tactics "Backfire"
"Hundreds of cyclists returned to the streets of Manhattan tonight in the monthly celebration of bicycles known as Critical Mass ... Organizers estimated the turnout at nearly 1,000 bicyclists, and as they poured onto Fifth Avenue from the north end of Union Square, the celebratory spirit that is a hallmark of the event was only slightly dampened by the rows of police on scooters that seemed to be everywhere." [Read More]
"Critical Mass riders tonight refused to be herded by roving scooter-cop pens. Hundreds of riders spontaneously broke away from the NYPD approved designated parade route(?!) at Park Ave. and 53rd St. and reaffirmed the spirit of Critical Mass rides; no designated leaders, no set route ... Throughout the ride there was tremendous support from onlookers and alot more awareness of who we were. The Mayor's plan to stifle free speech seems to have backfired. More people than ever now know about Critical Mass and support the cyclists." [Read More]more... 32 Comments
David McReynolds | David McReynolds, the Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate in New York, today announced his support for universal health care in New York. â€“ a full Medicare for All. â€œThis is not a question of spending more money on health care,â€ stated McReynolds. â€œWe need to get more health care for the money that we are already spending. A single payer system could free up $200 billion nationally, allowing us to provide quality health care to the forty-five million Americans who presently lack health care coverage, while also dealing with the crisis with prescription drugs and long term care.â€ more... 1 CommentsPage 153 | Page 151
