This is the crime that this government has committed, and if you don't do something about it in time, you are going to open the doors for something to be done about it from outside forces.

--"The Black Revolution," in Malcolm X Speaks: Selected Speeches and Statements

No, he neglected to mention that.

Soviet Woman Combat Pilot Fought Nazis: In Honor of Nadezhda Popova

Sorry, Comrade Pugwampi, I don't follow the logic. Furthermore, although I have a fondness for succubi, I can't get behind any campaign of racial genocide. (Unless, of course, it's of the filthy pinkskins*.)

[Rejects Citizen Rysky's application for membership in the Commonwealth Party of Galt (M-L)]


Die, pinkskins, die!!

Article I much preferred about the recent experiment in decriminalization of prostitution in Canada:


Alright, guess I should go back to New Hampshire now...


Huh. I didn't even know La Principessa's UFT caucus had a webpage:

Movement of Rank and File Educators

Anti-Cuomo education reform rally in Manhattan earlier today:

Pinko Bingo score: 7 (American Cliffites-1; CWI--1; Freedom Socialist Party--5)

No Sparts, alas. :(

Was supposed to leave directly back to New England, but decided to stick around for another day.

Weather forecast looks likes it's going to snow tomorrow, which would make moving The Black Goblin's Pregnant Libertarian Dreadlocked Girlfriend difficult. Maybe I can squeeze out another day in Brooklyn?

I already helped The Black Goblin move his new gun safes into the Free NH Goblin Resistance Hideout, soon to be renamed something more domestic. Gun safes, it turns out, like everything else have brand names. One was dubbed "Revolution" and the other was "The Ammo Can."

"What is that?" I quipped in between exertions, "The title of the biopic they're gonna make about your life?"

[Hollywood trailer narrator voice]

"He was an anarcho-syndicalist Teamster, she was a Ron Paul-voting welder; together their love was going to overthrow the government! Coming this April to a theater near you, Revolution and the Ammo Can!

Hmmm. Well, I had a busy week of commie furlough planned, but I've noticed La Principessa's tendency towards emotional breakdowns every 72 hours or so can make maintaining schedules difficult.


Spent a lot of time helping La Principessa with her article on the UE strike and her "lead-off" on the labor movement for her weekly Branch Meeting. Had fun at the latter, talked commie talk, sold some books, squabbled, had Mexican. Found editing La Principessa to be an interesting experience. I secretly fancy myself a better writer than her, but she's got a Master's in English and is very stubborn. She kept putting back all the weak wordings (language-wise, not commie-) that I had struck (??--stricken? Hey, I didn't say I was a great writer!).

Did a paper sale on Saturday in a Queens Metro station. I sold five papers in an hour. The whole branch can go a couple of months before we sell five in New Hampshire! Man, I love cities!

Then, last three nights in a row, boom! She keeps having bad days, so I blow off commie plans to hang around the house, smoke weed and have sex. It's a real drag, lemme tell ya. And what can make La Principessa have a bad day? You name it--a stern lecture from her vice-principal, a tense UFT delegate assembly, my not having enough orgasms (she speculated that her ratio of climaxes to mine is 8:1, he modestly added). Like I said, a drag. On the plus, though, my cooking's getting better, I've gotten a bit of reading done and I've listened to a lot of Gong.

Planning for a myriad of life-changing possibilities, none of which allow me to keep my voluminous library intact, I have decided to model myself after Harvey Pekar and peddle my books at Branch Meetings.

This week I sold:

The Struggle for a Proletarian Party by James P. Cannon
Labour in Irish History by James Connolly
The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois
Malcolm X on Afro-American History
The Wages of Whiteness by David Roediger

the proceeds of which I thereupon spent at a Mexican restaurant on frozen strawberry margaritas.

I also gave a beat-up thirties hardback of Victor Serge's Russia: 20 Years Later to a dear comrade of La Principessa's that I had outrageously priced at $12, mostly, I think, in hopes of dissuading people from buying it.

In fact, I'm kind of pissed about losing all of them. Why couldn't people buy Capital Vols. II and III instead?

Anyway, in my own reading I have settled on , The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vassa, the African. Written by Himself.

Turned the voluntary three-day furlough into a voluntary five-day furlough. Would have made it six, but I noticed a woman with less seniority had requested next Thursday off.

"Oh, go ahead, Doodlebug, I was kind of torn. I had already decided I wasn't going to take any more time off, but, then, you know..."

"They offered."

"Yeah. But if you want it, go ahead."

"No, no, no, [XXXX]. I'm not going to bump you. I'll just wait until then and then I'll call out. Why should I take your day off when we can both take the day off?"

Teamster Power!

a visit to a car wash strike on Wednesday,

NYT article that came up in my Facebook feed and was more interesting when the headline read:

"Shouting Woman": Giving a Voice to Immigrant Workers in New York

To go along with my finishing reading The Origin of Private Property, the Family and the State:

A commie article randomly spit out when I google searched "punaluan family,"

Lewis Henry Morgan, the punaluan family, the gentes and the defence of materialism

a long talk about

Engels and the origins of womens oppression

by a Britishiznoid SWPer (and for us commie watchers, that's a little loaded with irony) and, finally,

Women's Oppression Under Capitalism,

a talk by 16-year-old NJ High School Student Comrade. What were you doing when you were 16? Sniffing glue and playing Dungeons and Dragons, I bet.

Also, La Principessa will soon have an article on the Ipswich UE strike on the website. They finally signed a contract. Look for a link soon and

Vive le Galt!!!

48 hours of fighting with La Principessa led to tearful reconciliations and mutually amazing phone sex. Relationships are weird.

Anyway, anti-Scott Walker demo was a bit lackluster. 300 or so New England trade unionists marching in a quiet picket line. Lowell carpenter dude tries chanting, cops come out and tell us to be quiet because there are kids in the high school taking their SATs. Apparently, Scott Walker was kicking off his presidential campaign by whispering. Highlight was a Hispanic trade unionist who, everytime we passed him on the picket line, would shout out "Viva Fidel!" or "Che lives!" Was a little disappointed that my sign was the only one that drew the connection between Walker's assault on the unions and the police killing of Tony Robinson, but, whatever.

Later that night, went to a CAJE vegetarian dinner/meeting at a professor's beautiful loft apartment in Lowell. She had contacted Mr. Comrade for the first Lowell demo to see if her daughter could give a speech to fulfill a requirement for her bat mitzvah. Until they showed up, Mr. Comrade had no idea it was one of his professors from the previous semester.

Anyway, nice meeting with two working class black women, a (wicked hawt) Nigerian student, two lesbians, an anarcho-syndicalist and three dirty commies, kicked off by a havdalah and ended with the professor's daughters' "Smurf cake."

Activism is fun.

Older one making the rounds due to the impending Scott Walker visit to my fair state:

You Hate "Right To Work" Laws More Than You Know. Here's Why

Damn it, the suspense is killing me! Was he good for nuthin' or wasn't he?

Actually, even if he wasn't he was. I mean, if he was really good for somethin', he would have been channelling the sites of CIA weapon drops to Nicaraguan contras and Afghan proto-al Qaedans to the KGB instead of deregulating trucking decimating the Teamsters.

F!~@in' Kennedys.

Shoulda known Kennedy was good-for-nuthin'.

Ahh, it was in the Books Thread.

Karl Marx and the American Civil War

A few others that failed to persuade La Principessa (man, she's stubborn):

Reading Karl Marx with Abraham Lincoln
The Civil War: The Second American Revolution--Honor Abraham Lincoln!
Lincoln and Marx

Only three months? That's not so bad!

Four years is quite impressive, Comrade Fergie, and I bow to your inspection avoidance-fu.

I was less concerned about it in years past when I was going to work at two in the morning and only had to worry about the ride home. Now, with Daylights Savings, I have to worry about it both ways. Also, it's affecting my ability to do political work. For example, I don't want to drive to Concord to protest Scott Walker and leave my car on the side of the street for a couple of hours.

EDIT: Oh, also, I've had a copy of The Best of Abbie Hoffman since my teen years. Here in NH we've recently befriended an elderly Jewish man from Brooklyn who claims he was in the Yippies back in the day.

Anyway, fighting with La Principessa about Abraham Lincoln on Facebook. Where's that article about Marx and the Civil War? Hmmm...

Hmmm. Lack of intonation in internet communication strikes again!

It's possible. Hopefully, though, I will be moving to New York soon(ish) and will never need a car again. Also, my father gave it to me. Also also, it has a cassette player and it allows me to tape my records and listen to them while driving around. Otherwise, I'd never get to listen to my albums.

Thank you for the advice on personal finance, though.


I've got to save a couple thousand bucks or so to get my car (made by UAW workers if it's any consolation) to pass inspection (three months late and counting) before I can start saving for boots.

"And if they don't give us what we like/Men, that's when you gotta go on strike!"

Vive le Galt!

That's nice, Alex. I tend to buy whatever I can get for $30 at Marshall's.

Part that always stands out in my mind when I laud Sancho: when he dreams of being a governor and running a slave empire.


I have a weak spot for amusing, amoral libertines. At least in art; in real life they tend to be a#+!&&&s.

Almost every one of these paragraphs listing the Islamic Republic of Iran's crimes makes me have to back up and make sure I'm reading about Iran.

Anyway, not a big fan of the ayatollahs, but, given the chance, I'd totally sell state secrets to Obama's latest bogeyman, Venezuela.

Well, actually, I'd probably just give them away for free.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me give you some advice here:

Don't. Just don't.

And for those of you who are raging about those 'treasonous' Republicans, you might want to consider the actions of a certain Ted Kennedy. He had actively contacted the Soviet Union to assist in derailing then-President Reagan's policy. THAT is damn close to the legal definition, right there.

Now, THAT'S the kind of treason I can get behind!

[Watches The Falcon and the Snowman]

Oh yeah, I forgot, La Principessa's parents retired out in Madison, Wisconsin. She called her father--who did some work in Texas during the later year of the Civil Rights Movement (apparently he's got stories about being chased by the Klan) and later did pro bono police brutality cases in NYC (for which he was awarded some honor by the Bar Association)--for his birthday and asked him if he had been going to any of the demonstrations in the wake of the killing of Tony Robinson. He said he had and La Principessa, excited to have something to bond with her father about, asked him how it was.

"It was depressing, Check" (they call her "Check") "It was really depressing. Here it is forty, fifty years later, and I'm still going to these f**%ing things."

Speaking of lobbying, article I ran across from First Look:

Immediately After Launching Effort to Scuttle Iran Deal, Senator Tom Cotton to Meet with Defense Contractors

I hope so.

In commie news, lessee...while I was in Brooklyn our NH branch, in coalition with the Black Lives Matter activists and the local 350 activists, have apparently launched a group called Community Activists for Justice and Equality whose acronym, of course, is CAJE. "The system is a caje" etc., etc. [Shudders] Don't blame me comrades, I was in New York. Anyway, cynical hispter negativity aside, while I was gone they held a public meeting (30 or so attendees), a film showing on International Women's Day (again, 30 or so attendees), on Monday, while I was dilly-dallying about, kissing La Principessa good bye before the long trek back, and held a rally outside a courthouse against the New Jim Crow and in solidarity with some black kid who was being unfairly railroaded for something or other (I've been out of the loop, alas).

This weekend we've got a rally against visiting Gov. Scott Walker in Concord that should bring out all the leftie-labor types and then back to Lowell for another CAJE meeting, although I might have to help The Black Goblin move his Pregnant Dreadlocked Libertarian Ex-Welder Girlfriend into the Free NH Goblin Resistance Hideout. 'Tis truly the end of an era, comrades. (Links to come later, maybe.)

In completely other news, my Independent Red Maoist-Inclined Historian Rival for La Principessa's Affections (Since Vanquished) had a review published in a commie journal and he Tagged me in his Facebook post, so etiquette demanded that I say I'd read it soon, so I'm posting it here so that I'll remember to do so:

Tamás Krausz's living Lenin

It may interest the comrades to know that "Enaa" is the name of one of his Dungeons and Dragons characters.

Nerds of the world, unite!

Reminds me of the time I tried to sell top secret package delivery systems to Vlad Korboff.

All I asked for was a complete set of Lenin's Collected Works and a date with Anna Chapman. Alas, Citizen Koroboff couldn't come through or else I totally would've Benedict Arnolded.

Not as much "Fifty Shades sex."

Anyway, article La Principessa was sharing on Facebook:

Forget Education Saviors – They Aren’t Coming

Went to a birthday party for a UFT member with a buncha educators last night. Was disappointed to discover that it was less Teacher Snow Day, more Frat Kid Binge Drinking.

Here's my argument: School sucks!

Personally, I had to look up "ostensive." Still not sure what that sentence means. Of course I did drop out of college. Three times.
