textScripps study: Two key southern California fisheries collapse by CalOceans
A new Scripps study has found that two key Southern California fisheries--kelp bass and barred sand bass--have declined by 90% in the past 20 years, continuing an alarming trend that has seen other targeted species like cowcod, sheepshead and halibut dwindling in the region. One proven way to rebuild fisheries is protecting the places where fish feed and breed, and California is working to do just that through the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA)....

textFive Minutes of Geography … by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The late Lenny Bruce once joked that the radical Right's fears about — shock! — sex education in the public schools were unfounded because schoolkids weren't going to come home and tell their parents, "Today at school we learned five minutes of geography and ten minutes of cocksucking." The modern-day radical Right's campaign to get rid of SB 48, a bill recently passed by the California legislature to require middle and high schools to teach the role and contributions of Queer Americans (alon...

textLabor/Progressive Coalition in San Diego ? Will It Change a Damn Thing? by Rocky Neptun
I have watched power liberals, strut, posture and be awash in their aura as “the loyal opposition.” Their hierarchical, self-serving, activism (many are paid professionals) has long ago abandoned organizing in the neighborhoods, the hoods and barrios. Their liberalism, weak, shallow; it tinkers rather than confronts, compromises rather than challenges, sends you to “break-out sessions” rather than to the streets....

textTea Party America and How to Fight It by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The recent debate in Washington, D.C. over raising the debt ceiling has underscored just how totally the radical Right in general and the "Tea Party" in particular have taken over America's political debate and the economic and social consciousness of a majority of Americans. The remnant of a Left that still survives in America can only fight back if it first realizes, like a rehab patient, that we've "hit bottom" and then musters the kind of internal and external discipline it will take to m...

textThe Debt Ceilling: Where Are the Grownups? by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The fact that the ruling elites haven't stepped in and forced the President and Congress to raise the debt ceiling, the way they did in October 2008 to push through the TARP big-bank bailout, suggests either that the corporate ruling class likes the "shock treatment" agenda being pushed by the Tea Party -- force a default on U.S. debt so the President and Congress will have to eliminate the welfare state virtually overnight -- or that the Tea Party has become the ruling class's Frankenstein, ...

textThe Marriage Vow(s) by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The vote of the New York legislature to legally recognize same-sex marriage has produced a backlash of unexpected ferocity and scope. It comes from an Iowa-based organization called THE FAMiLY LEADER (that's the way it's printed on their logo) and it's called "The Marriage Vow." It's a far-reaching set of principles that goes beyond attacking same-sex marriage and supporting a Federal Marriage Amendment to ban it nationwide. It targets African-Americans in particular and says Black children b...
