Castro Touts Clinton/Obama Ticket for ’08

I have to agree with Fidel Castro on this one. Castro writing in Granma Today, talk is about the seemingly invincible ticket that might be created with Hillary for President and Obama for Vice President. Hillary Clinton, with Edwards, Richarson or some other as as VP candidate might not make it. Obama has inexperience and [...]

Martin Hirst’s "Comrade’s" Ties to Muslim Militants

Communist Cut-Out Conyers, Backs Obama

I have contended for some time that the Communist Party USA has a favoured candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Openly far left Democratic contender [...]

Over-bureaucratised and burdened with the loathsome, inefficient and useless “unit standards” system, employers are simply opting out. No matter how much [...]
