If this is one of the things you possibly could be in disagreement with the Democrats on, Greg. No one is going to agree on everything anyway, especially the death penalty. Reply April 2, 2017 at 10:20 pm Mama Mia 5 COMMENTS Her name is Aramis Ayala. Attorney General Aramis Ayala has not broken any laws with her decision of not seeking the death penalty on murder cases that she will prosecute. Anyone has the right to opine but accusations need to be proven. Please go to Florida State book of laws and prove to the people of Florida that her decision is unlawful. Her only mistake was to go public with her plans. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Reply I would not worry about it Greg unless you are hoping to be a member of the electoral college, LOL. I am not sure who you are referring to in the Democrat party or what issues you are referring to, but I highly suspect it is AA the attorney general who is apparently enjoying her new found fame and challenging the laws of Florida. I read everyday where the Democrat party, generally speaking, supports her, but I don’t! Is there a litmus test to be a Democrat?OpinionBy Greg Jackson, Esq.Greg JacksonQuestion: Did anyone get the memo stating that when you register with a political party you must leave your personal beliefs, morals, common sense and opinions at the door? Well, many Democrats, such as myself, have learned that if you do not agree with the direction, leadership or agenda of the party, it is best that you keep quiet or risk being ostracized by party hardliners who oftentimes are found in leadership at the local level. If you voice an opinion that differs from the party’s, no matter if it is based on credible evidence or common sense, you may even be considered “not-a-real-Democrat.” I have learned that when weak or unethical Democrats, who are supported by party “insiders,” run for elected office, you better support them even if their moral and/or ethical shortcomings conflict with your own. If you opt, instead to stand on principal, there is a very good likelihood that you will be considered a troublemaker or even worse marked as a Republican, which in Democrat-speak is next to the worst thing on the planet Earth. Admittedly, the scenarios I am describing are typically based on the actions of the hardcore members of the party. For the most part, Democrats (conservative, moderate, etc.) do not agree with everything the party stands for and will seek common ground with members of other parties to get things done. These efforts to work together are actually very healthy for the future growth of the party. However, the unfortunate reality is that for the most part, the hardcore element of the party is typically the most vocal and garner the most attention. (NOTE: I fully recognize that these same sentiments are felt in the Republican, Libertarian, Green Parties, etc.).As the political landscape changes in Orange County, it is undeniable that the number of Republican voters is declining while Democratic voters’ numbers are inching up slightly. That for the most part is due to the Democratic party spending considerably more time with voter registration. These efforts, help to “pack-the-field” with more democratic minded voters who, when called upon, for the most part will go to the polls and vote for a Democrat. However, what cannot be ignored is that the fastest growing political party in Orange County and across the State is arguably N.P.A., which stands for Non-Party Affiliates. It appears that as party loyalist seek to make it mandatory for its members to blindly follow but not question, people are looking to go to a party where they can speak and vote freely.What parties seem to forget is that politics is merely a process, not a definition of who we are as individuals. In my experience, when people are asked about the things that are most important to them, the order is typically: God, family, country, etc. If they were to become robots of a political party, the list would be: party affiliation, party agenda, party elected officials, and I think you get where I am going. My point is this, first and foremost, in the context of political importance, we are Americans. Our votes, focus and support should, and would be better spent, going with those candidates and ideas that will keep our country at the top of the list of being the greatest country ever to be in existence. Next, parties need to understand that constructive disagreements help us to all become stronger, as a party and as a nation. In the midst of disagreement there is always a happy median, a place where we can work together to better our communities. Next, speaking against the position of a candidate or elected official in your own party is actually healthy and can result in better leadership and support. That is because the ability to recognize shortcomings and honestly addressing those things lends credibility to the party. Instead of being seen as a robot or puppet, you will be viewed as a fair-minded person people can trust to give honest assessments and opinions. Interestingly, Community leaders are always encouraging people “if you see something, say something.” That same concept should be encouraged in politics to help ensure that we get candidates and elected officials who will best serve our communities and collective interest, which is important to the survival and betterment of our nationGreg Jackson is a past Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida, military veteran, current Orange County District 2 Representative on the Board of Zoning Adjustments, and General Counsel for the Community Redevelopment Agency. He has been as an active member of the Central Florida community for nearly 20 years. He was most recently a candidate for the Florida House District 45 seat.last_img read more

Behind the media praise for Pope Francis

first_imgAt a time when the U.S. capitalist political establishment is in crisis, how comforting it must have been for virtually all the warring camps to come together in effusive praise for Pope Francis and his talk to the U.N. conference on Millennium Development Goals.The pontiff’s visit was received with a level of media coverage that a rock star could only wish for. No presidents, generals, corporate heads or groundbreaking scientists could ever achieve one-tenth of the coverage accorded the pope. While the domestic news had been dominated by protests over police killings of unarmed Black people, corruption on Wall Street, the widening gap between rich and poor, the drought and raging wildfires in the West, the vicious Republican debates and the gridlock in Congress, the international news had been even more painful, with unending wars in the MIddle East and the resulting mass exodus of hundreds of thousands of desperate people to Europe. But with the visit of Pope Francis, the capitalist media now had the opportunity to offer people who suffer themselves, or identify with the suffering masses, some hope, which was of course expressed only in generalities.Francis’ speeches were full of eloquent concern about the fate of the Earth, the suffering of migrants and the growth of poverty amid obscene wealth. This is what people want to hear more about, and his words went beyond the messages of his predecessors at the pinnacle of the Catholic Church. Undoubtedly, there are many who hope it will propel forward their struggles for reform in these areas.Given the church’s reactionary positions on divorce, contraception, abortion and lesbian-gay-bi-trans*-queer rights, nothing that Francis said challenged the Vatican’s age-old role as a world pillar of male domination and the consigning to hell of all who dare challenge it.It should be obvious that the U.S. big-business media, from the lofty, globally conscious New York Times and Washington Post to the frenetically right-wing Fox media conglomerate, all speak for various elements of the U.S. capitalist ruling class. Even the most liberal never go beyond criticism and editorial positions intended to patch up and prettify this increasingly monstrous system. Far be it for any of them to ever side with those who advocate a revolutionary solution to the gangrenous decay of outmoded capitalism.Their enthusiasm for the pope’s pronouncements, therefore, must be seen in the context of present-day struggles. Here in the United States, these struggles are becoming more acute as the exploitation of the working class and the even fiercer oppression of its most downtrodden sections — people of color and immigrants — have aroused a significant section of the population. The young especially are showing outright defiance of the state and its repressive functions, especially in relation to police violence and mass incarceration. Role of Catholic Church in historyWhile the Catholic Church is a powerful worldwide institution with a long history, which has amassed extreme wealth over the centuries, its influence today should not be exaggerated. The church has been in decline for many years, especially in Europe where it has roots.It was long ago superseded in Europe and the U.S. by various Protestant religions, whose struggle with the Catholic Church had its origins in the rise of the bourgeoisie versus the feudal lords. The Enlightenment period rejected Catholic dogma and opened the way for the development of science and industry, pillars of early capitalism.With the development of capitalism into its imperialist stage, however, commercial and industrial capital began taking a back seat to increasingly powerful banks and other financial institutions. The growing world economy was dominated mainly by “WASPs” — white, Anglo-Saxon Protestants from Europe and North America — who ruled through such institutions as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.The past century saw many challenges to imperialist rule. Most notable were the revolutions in Russia, China, Korea, Vietnam and Cuba that overturned capitalist property relations and aimed at building socialism. Facing problems of extreme underdevelopment and unremitting hostility from the imperialists, these revolutions were secular and summoned the efforts of the masses of people to improve conditions, rather than seek the help of a supposed higher power.In Eastern Europe, where the upending of the old social order came through the military defeat of Nazi Germany and its collaborators by the Soviet Red Army, rather than by popular revolutions, the Catholic Church became a conduit for counterrevolution. Pope John Paul II, a Pole, played a notable part in the return of East European countries to the fold of global capitalism. But while this earned him and the church great praise from non-Catholics in the bourgeoisie, especially in the U.S., that has not reversed the historically declining fortunes of the Vatican.The rise of the women’s movement and the concomitant struggle for reproductive choice, as well as revelations of child sexual abuse by a supposedly celibate Catholic clergy, plus an influx of people from other nationalities and religions, have led to a decline in the influence and finances of the church, especially in Western Europe. Today, there are more practicing Muslims in France than there are practicing Catholics. And in Italy, home of the Vatican, those who attended Mass every Sunday in 2010 made up less than 5 percent of the population; the figure was even lower for youth. (Center for the Study of New Religions)The Church and Liberation TheologyIn Latin America, however, the situation is more complex. Beginning in the 1960s, the struggle of the masses against brutal dictatorships, which were propped up by the U.S. with arms and money, shook the Catholic hierarchy and attracted many priests and nuns who were closest to the poor. A new brand of Catholicism, Liberation Theology, put emphasis on raising up the most oppressed and was sympathetic to revolutionary forces in the hemisphere, including the Cuban Revolution. Some of its advocates participated in armed struggles against the repressive regimes. Priests and nuns in this movement became targets of the dictators, most notably in Central America, Argentina and Brazil, and the movement itself was denounced by the Vatican.Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the present Pope Francis, is from Argentina. He was not part of this progressive, even revolutionary, movement that reached into the clergy.The military in Argentina launched a coup in 1976, supported by Washington, and then carried out a vicious war against the left in which thousands were “disappeared.” The military eventually had to accede to a return of civilian government.It was Pope John Paul II who anointed Bergoglio a cardinal in 2001. When Bergoglio became pope two years ago, information surfaced about the complicity of the Argentine church with the crimes of the generals. Bergoglio was accused of not having used his position — he had been a bishop at the time of the “dirty war” — to save priests and others imprisoned by the junta. (Time, “The New Pope and Argentina’s ‘Disappeared’ of the Dirty War,” March 13, 2013) Bergoglio’s ascension in the church to the position of pope reflects the new reality since that time. Throughout Latin America, there is little sympathy for the reactionary forces that were lined up with U.S. imperialism in the period of multiple military coups and vicious dictatorships, from Venezuela and Chile to Guatemala and Paraguay. Even the corrupt and murderous political establishment in Colombia has had to sit down in Havana with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and negotiate an end to the war there.The new pope is able to articulate the sentiments of the masses of oppressed people with great passion and seeming humility. Yet the institution he represents, except for a small and valiant grouping in it which he has distanced himself from, has been opposed to the struggles of the people to take control over their lives in the now, not the hereafter.By praising the pope to the skies, we can assume that the capitalist establishment in the U.S. is eager to cloak itself in his present popularity and promote the church as a force for change. That is a far cry from being committed to any meaningful struggles that could make a dent in imperialist wars abroad or the economic aggression known as “free trade” — both of which result in devastation that is driving millions to leave their homes. Nor will it reverse the amassing of fabulous fortunes at one end of the class divide and abject poverty at the other. To do this — and to respond seriously to the hair-raising predictions about the future of this planet — requires a massive showdown with the class of super-rich who at present control most of the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Hoosiers Support New GMO Label Standard

first_img SHARE Hoosiers Support New GMO Label Standard Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jul 10, 2016 SHARE Previous articleStrong May Results for U.S. Beef, Pork ExportsNext articlePurdue Farmland Value Report will Show Significant Retreat Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Hoosiers Support New GMO Label Standard Hoosiers Support New GMO Label StandardLate last week, the U.S. Senate passed the long delayed and much debated food labeling bill. It sets a national standard for the labeling of food that contains GMO products.  Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly helped lead the effort to craft a workable compromise. The legislation gives opponents of biotechnology what they wanted: mandatory labeling of food products with GMOs. What the bill does not do is make those opponents happy. “This is a one-sided bill, one that benefits multi-national corporations and does nothing to help farm families,” said  Montana Senator Jon Tester, an organic farmer who voted against the measure.Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly, who was instrumental in achieving the compromise, says the new standard is a fair balance, “I welcome this bipartisan legislation that will provide consumers with access to information about the food we eat and provide certainty to Hoosier farmers and food manufacturers, so they can continue to provide a safe and reliable food supply for the world. This important agreement will bring the right information into our grocery stores and homes in a responsible way.” Donnelly says the bill, that must now be reconciled with the House version, is based on sound science.Hoosier farm leaders praised the action by the Senate. “Indiana Farm Bureau commends Senator Donnelly and other Senate leaders for working together for a solution to the biotechnology labeling debate that meets the needs of farmers and consumers,” said Randy Kron, President of Indiana Farm Bureau.  Jane Ade Stevens, CEO of Indiana Corn Growers Association and Indiana Soybean Alliance, said, “Indiana corn and soybean farmers appreciate the Senate’s passage of the legislation bringing consistency to the marketplace when it comes to a federal labeling standard for food. We commend Senator Donnelly for his willingness to support legislation that gives consumers the information about biotech content in food products they want without stigmatizing a completely safe and proven technology valued by our farmers.”If the U.S. House fails to consider the Senate approved GMO labeling bill this week, the fate of the legislation will be delayed until September. Congress is set to go on summer recess at the end of the week and won’t be back in session until September. Industry groups, such as the American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Corn Growers Association, are urging the House to quickly consider and pass the bill. The House passed a voluntary GMO labeling bill last year, a stark difference from the mandatory bill the Senate passed Thursday. Senator Pat Roberts warned House Ag Committee Chair Mike Conaway last week that the GMO measure approved by the Senate “is the last train that is leaving town.”last_img read more
