Although hundreds of Southerners have joined the Communist Party USA, ” many of them have never had a sit-down discussion with a party leader”.

To correct that situation and to boost numbers in the Communist party’s weakest region Illinois based Party Vice Chairman Scott Marshall and North Texas comrade Jim Lane plan a tour of Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, November 11-24.

The CPUSA New Members Committee sent out an invitation:


According to Jim Lane the CPUSA has a “rich tradition in the South, and there are a number of longtime comrades scattered here and there. Additionally, young people are more and more realizing that capitalism has no solutions for them and are seeking information from CPUSA.”In addition, Marshall and Lane intend to report regularly to CPUSA publications so that “all progressives in America can better understand Southerners and one another.”

“Interest in the Communist Party USA is rising across the South. We have gotten inquiries about our party, our program, our philosophy and our strategy, from all the Southern states. Many are asking how to join and become active. Many also want to know how we are organized and how to form clubs or study groups. Many have also participated in our on-line webinars and discussions. Because of this interest, and because we are seeing clusters of inquiries from areas of Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Kentucky, we are planning a two week trip through these areas….”

Capitalism Finally Takes Root in Russia – TIME

The people in a perfect society should all earn nothing, or alternatively, should all earn the same amount, depending on the interpretation of the most important Communist manifestos. The exception is in the section of the documents regarding “to each according to his needs.” In that case, in theory, one person could earn more than another if he really required the extra money.

A hallmark of capitalism, before the government got involved in what car company and bank executives were to be paid, was that employees could make as much as management felt they were due based on their contributions to the firms where they worked. The best salesman at a company could earn more than the CEO. The best investment banker at a brokerage firm could earn more than the head of investment banking. Just because a CEO held the highest title at a company did not mean that he had to be paid more than everyone who worked for him. Annual compensation data from the SEC has shown that a number of chief executives have not taken any of this to heart. They simply take every last dime they can get. Not everyone who runs a company is that greedy. Proxy reviews from a large number of American corporations underscore that subordinates can make more than their bosses and that merit is still often awarded above rank. (See pictures of the global financial crisis.)

The Russian government recently admitted that Vladimir Putin earned 11% more than his superior President Dmitry Medvedev. Putin is only the premier, but he was the head man before that, so some of his pay package may have been grandfathered. The Russians did not say. (See pictures of Putin’s patriotic youth camp.)

Reuters looked at the figures and said that Putin’s income amounted to $137,300 and Medvedev’s totaled $124,000. By the news service’s reckoning the men make about thirty times what the average Russian citizen does. The American president does not do nearly so well. He makes $400,000 and the media income of Americans over 25 is $32,140.

Medvedev has learned what most capitalist CEOs have known for years. Putin plays the heavy. He is the ex-KGB bully who is willing to say that invading neighboring countries is fine. Medvedev gets to play the role of the leader with balanced views, the cooler head, the man that foreign leaders would like to meet. And, for the privilege of being loved, Medvedev is paid $13,300 less than Putin. It shows the flaw in the US system. Of the people in the Administration President Obama is clearly the most well-liked as well as being the best paid. Geithner should ask for a raise.

“No, He Can’t”
By Anne Wortham | Published  11/14/2008

Fellow Americans,

        Please know: I am black; I grew up in the segregated South.  I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul’s name as my choice for president.  Most importantly, I am not race conscious.  I do not require a black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living.  I do not require a black president to love the ideal of America.

        I cannot join you in your celebration.  I feel no elation.  There is no smile on my face.  I am not jumping with joy.  There are no tears of triumph in my eyes.  For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival–all that I know about the history of the United States of America, all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. 

         I would have to deny the nature of the “change” that Obama asserts has come to America.  Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century.  I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life.  I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. ……………….
