Santa Cruz is a majority white town, characterized by an extreme shortage of affordable housing and rentals. In recent years there has been increasing encroachment by wealthy out-of-towners seeking second homes near the beach. Within the city’s neighborhoods, one stands out demographically. Beach Flats, bordering the Boardwalk’s enormous parking lots, is populated mainly by immigrants from Mexico and Central America....

image Libby Schaaf Takes Credit for California $15 Minimum Wage with Billboard Tribute to Herself 480_libbyschaaf-15minimumwage-billboard_20160515_001_1.jpg by Dave Id
On April 3, 2016, a $15 minimum wage was signed into law in California, gradually raising the minimum wage from the current $10/hour to $15/hour by 2022. The same day, a similar law was signed in New York state. Based on the huge billboard in her honor that was seen high above San Pablo Avenue in May, one would be led to believe that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf single-handedly fought against all odds to bring an increased minimum wage to fruition. Apparently, workers themselves deserve no cr...

text Anti-Abortion, Anti-Labor Tim Kaine is Clinton’s VP by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
It is bad enough women face death when they get pregnant. The Democrat’s Vice Presidential candidate, Tim Kaine, supported 24 hour waiting periods and parental consent while governor of Virginia. Women can die during 24 hour waiting periods and waiting for parental consent if they need to abort a dead fetus immediately to save the woman’s life. Tom Kaine also supports the anti-labor trade agreements known as NAFTA and Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)....

A November 2016 ballot measure for a new Oakland Police Commission is expected to be finalized and approved by the Oakland City Council at their meeting on July 19. The measure, originally proposed by the Coalition for Police Accountability and since taken up by the City Council, continues to be watered down further and further. Local non-police unions have turned out to be one of the most vociferous opponents to strong civilian police oversight in Oakland, even though police "unions" such ...

Sanders has one quality that gives him an advantage in the US election campaign that is based largely on sympathies: authenticity... The demand to double the nationwide minimum wage to $15, further development of universal health insurance and free access to state universities are now in the election program of the party... The logical consequence of "Not Me. Us" is that the individual fights for improvement of social conditions, not for himself and his personal success. Go Bernie Go! The wo...

So called "progressive" Norman Soloman is now linked up with Robert Kagan. Soloman in the past attacked Ralph Nader for costing the election for Gore. He argued that candidates to the left of Gore should not be on the ballot and take votes away from the Democrats. This so called "corporate media critic" ends up supporting the very capitalist candidates who are representatives of the corporate media....
