“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Van Jones Quits and Still no comment from Philadelphia Inquirer over association with cop killer, Mumia abu Jamal

By the way, for some of you who get twitchy when I use the word "negro" or "field negro." That is a term freely used by black militants and marxists. It was given coin by Malcom X, who took pride in being a field negro.

You may find some of the posts over at the Field Negro interestin yo.

Here is a brilliant clip posted by Victor Silo on the previous post:


  1. By the way, Mumia is not always a fan of Obama. Here Mumia, in a prison recording is complaining about Obama selling out to the insurance industry.

  2. Van Jones in his exit statement is getting back down with Mumia:
    ""On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in the statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

    "But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future," Jones said

  3. Aren't they fighting for Us?
    ...hope springs eternal.

  4. Chevron video reveals corruption in Ecuador

    A looking-glass maze of Ecuadoran courtroom battles that since 2003 has been the $27 billion rain forest pollution lawsuit against Chevron might be blown apart now.

  6. Obama will urge kids to go to private school.

    A draft copy of President Barack Obama's planned September 8 address to America's public school children, tells students that "If you want to grow up to be like me, you should beg your parents to put you in private school, right now."

    Although Obama attended public school in Indonesia early in life, he soon switched to a private Catholic school, and from fifth grade through graduation went to a private college-prep school in Hawaii. His own daughters now attend a private school in Washington D.C..

    "Do you think you're going to get into Harvard University with your one-size-fits-all public school diploma?" the president will reportedly say. "Come on! Don't make me laugh. You'll be lucky to survive through graduation. Seriously, you gotta get out of this mediocrity machine. Go ahead! Get up right now. Run for the door. What are you waiting for?"

    While the White House would not confirm the content of the leaked speech draft, a spokesman acknowledged that "You don't get to be as smart and cool as Barack Obama by sitting in P.S. 152, listening to some union lackey droning on, and then eating government surplus in the cafeteria."
