Regarding your previous point where you stated about "If the government would ban corporations from outsourcing American jobs".---
An observation.---- As is, corporations don't even have to bother exiting out of the continental United States.
All a corporation has to do is move to a state in the continental United States which has the "Right To Work" laws. Or, relocate to Hawaii or to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
The corporation could totally get around unions.
So, corporations SURE do have a grip on the government.
Again, what corporations want, they get.

Your 3 points above.----- You are 150% right on the mark.
Ish Tov, we see eye to eye about all of the United States political & social happenings.
Also, about foreign nations political & social happenings.
#584 Nov 12, 2013
Your 11 points above.-----
Those points have been presented by a few Americans on CNN & MSNBC several years ago.
Independent radio venues & "Resistance Radio" has put forward those 11 claims.----
With all due respect, nothing has come of it.
No hard evidence has come forward that the February, 1993 bombing was a conspiracy.

Under Operation Paperclip.----
It was primarily the former Nazi Germany, former Fascist Italy & former Fascist Hungarys top Intelligence Services Generals & Officers.
It was for their know how in regards to mind control. Also, in regards to all of the massive amount of information which they had (Via their spy networks) on the former Soviet Union.
There were also many Ukrainian Right wingers who were former reistance fighters against the Soviet Union.
Many Croatian Right wing Ustase members.
Many Spanish Right wing Falangists.
Many Belgium Right wing Rexists.
Many Dutch Right wing Vlansch members & Verbond members.
Many French Right wing former Croix-De-Feu former members.

Exactly. Obviously until the people demand that their politicians, notably the Democrats, stand up for WORKERS, none of this will change.
We need strong Unions for ALL workers and an end to corporate hegemony... start with rolling back EVERYTHING Reagan did.

Ish Tov ----
You said "One advantage the UFW had in earlier days was strong support from certain Democrats (notably RFK)".----
Oh yeah. Big time. Especially from Democrat Robert Kennedy.
You said "and from the Left".---
Doesn't the United Farm Workers still get substantial support from other sectors of the United States political left wing?
You said "The UFW now is actually weak, and unable to garner support for boycotts".----
Mind if I ask, why do you think this is the case?
A case of the "changing times"?
A case of maybe the other sectors of the United States view the goals, objectives &/or demands of the United Farm Workers as being too much?
#590 Nov 12, 2013
I see your points.
Ish Tov, I wouldn't say though, that it is a case of the Chicano Movements leaders "failing". No.
I would say that it is just a case of the eras changing. With the goals, objectives & causes changing.
#591 Nov 12, 2013
I remember you mentioning this incident the other week.
Also, there were no other non-Hispanic White left wingers from Santa Cruz who showed up at this protest march.
Maybe the reason why the non-Hispanic White left wingers didn't show up at the march.---- Because they didn't think that they personally would be benefiting from the United Farm Workers march.
A case of where race came into play.
A case of where in the political left wing, there are racial overtones.
#592 Nov 12, 2013
I see what you are saying.
It isn't just the Chicano Movement.
From 1965 till now.---- All sectors on the United States political left wing (The left wing grassroots social movements, etc.) have run into political roadblocks.
From 1929 till 1964.----- The goals & objectives of the United States political left wing were very discernable.
This hasn't been the case from 1965 till now.
#593 Nov 12, 2013
Oh, I'm totally well aware of this stuff.
What happens in the Dominican Republic.---- What relevance does that have to do with the United States domestic policies?---- Nothing.
In the Dominican Republic, some criminal acts committed against some tourists.----
What relevance does this have to do with the public policy initiatives & social engineering policies in the United States?----- Nothing.
#594 Nov 12, 2013
Your link above.----
Where Noel Polanco decked to grab something. The Arab-American New York City Detective thought Noel was going for a weapon. The detective shot Noel.----
This is a totally different situation & dynamic.
Compared to the public policy initiatives & social engineering policies which are in effect.

THANK YOU ZIONIST ISRAEL:
"Thank you for taking billions of dollars in aid every year from our taxes, so that Zionist Israel can have things like free health care while we in the USA do not. "
"Thank you for erecting an apartheid wall and imposing Nasi style
check points and curfews on Palestinians so that the whole Arab
world can hate the United States for our supposed support of you."
"Thank you for giving us Neocons in our government that always push relentlessly for policies that benefit Zionist Israel at the expense of the USA. "
"Thank you for giving us AIPAC, the most powerful lobby in
Washington, who also push relentlessly for policies that benefit
Zionist Israel at the expense of the USA. "
"Thank you for having enough nuclear weapons to destroy the entire
planet, but never signing any nuclear treaty of any kind. "
"Thank you for the humanitarianism you showed in the Siege of Gaza, where you ruthlessly bombed defenseless women and children, purposefully targeting schools, hospitals and churches. "
"Thank you for spreading a so-called "religion" that claims Zionists as "God's chosen people" above all other people on the planet, and considers "goyim" as cattle. "
"Thank you for destroying the truth in the media you either own or
control with threats from pro-Zionist Israel lobby groups. "
"Thank you for being the #1 nation that --- on American citizens. "
Thank you for Rabbis that traffic in -------- sales.
"Thank you for giving us Larry Silverstein, who PROFITED over 2
BILLION DOLLARS from insurance payouts on the World Trade
Center complex that he assumed lessorship of only weeks prior to
9/11.....as the lowest bidder. He also doubled the 'terrorist
insurance' prior to the lease. "
"Thank you for giving us Zionist Israeli citizens like Michael Chertoff and Dov Zakheim in the highest levels of our government. Sure makes me sleep better at night. "
"Thank you for giving us ZIONISM, the invisible evil that finds
refuge in our government, our media, our monetary system, and the
very fabric of our country, that considers as essentially important only what is best for Zionist Israel and Zionists above all other allegiances. "
"Thanks for the hundreds of photos and videos available on the
internet of your IDF opening fire and killing women and children in the occupied territories. "
"Thank you for bulldozing Palestinian homes, forcing the residents
out at gunpoint, and stealing their land for Zionist Israeli settlements, all with the supposed backing of the USA, as that really helps our image in the world. "
"Thank you for giving us the Neocons that infested the Bush white
house and formed the Project For The New American Century, who
called for ---------- TO HAPPEN ON AMERICAN SOIL so Americans would support middle east wars. "
"Thanks for giving us Neocon poison spouts like --------,
who pollute our media with their cries for war with Iran, so we can become COMPLETELY bankrupt as a nation in our supposed support
of Zionist Israel. "
"Thanks A Lot, Really."

Your link above.----
That kid who was mentioned in that link, Andy Lopez.---- He is not Dominican.
That kid was carrying a pellet gun which looked like an AK-47 assault rifle.
What the heck was that kid thinking going out in public with a pellet gun which looks like a real AK-47?
That deputy yelled to that kid to "Drop the gun". At least twice.
This incident is totally distinct & different.
From the public policy initiatives & social engineering policies which are in place.
#599 Nov 12, 2013
Your link above deals with hardships which undocumented Dominicans experience in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.---
I have been fully aware of that stuff.
The dynamics are totally different.
Compared to the public policy initiatives & social engineering policies which have been in effect in the continental United States. Which are still in effect. Which will remain.

I have to agree, Barros. What disturbs me from the standpoint of a basic "let's-all-pull-together " ethos, is the unwitting hostility (or indifference) to the union position shown by far too many of the impoverished working class.
Right here on Topix, we have white working men in the janitorial wage category who will happily vote Republican in any given Presidential or Congressional election.
#602 Nov 12, 2013
You said "I wonder...If Dr. King had lived even ONE more year to cement his coalition with Chavez...How might history have been different?".----
I'd say it wouldn't.
Because the goals, objectives & interests of the African American "Civil Rights Movement" were different. Compared to the goals, objectives & interests of the United Farm Workers.
Non-Hispanic White leftists have different goals, objectives & interests.
The 1960s African American Civil Rights Movement had MANY infiltrators & informants.
The United Farm Workers had many infiltrators & informants.
American organizations which had many non-Hispanic White leftists had many infiltrators & informants.
The American System will grant only certain concessions. That is it.
#603 Nov 12, 2013
Again, what happens in the Dominican Republic is totally irrelevant & immaterial to the United States domestic policies.
What happens in the Dominican Republic.----
Hasn't played any part (It won't) in regards to the public policy initiatives & social engineering polices which are in place in the United States.

They're bombarded with Rush Limbaugh and Fox News and are unable to think for themselves.
And their schools "forgot" to teach them HOW to think...
#606 Nov 12, 2013
Somewhat correct. Primarily incorrect.
There are non-Hispanic White racists who hate all people of color.
Especially the non-Hispanic Whites who are with radical White Right wing organizations like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), Aryan Nations &/or skinheads.
Then, there is the average non-Hispanic White.----
The average non-Hispanic White will have a good number of African American (Descendants of black American slaves) acquaintances. Several, whom he/she will consider as friends.
The average non-Hispanic White will like a good number of African American athletes.
The average non-Hispanic White will like several African American singers, actors, actresses & comedians.
But, at the same time.----- The average non-Hispanic White will still view most African Americans as being less.
The only difference is the level & degree of the racism &/or prejudice. That is it.
