Quote:
As we all know, the Lib Dems desperately want to impose a ‘mansion tax’ on all homes worth more than £2 million, a move blocked by David Cameron. Targeting the ‘affluent’ who own homes worth more than £1 million looks very much like a sneaky way of getting this ‘mansion tax’ by the back door.

So is the Prime Minister going to roll over and let this happen? What on earth are Tories for if not to protect the country from this kind of socialist wrecking ball?

This war on affluence is nothing less than a war on prosperity and on Britain’s whole economic future.

Today's local newspaper:

'CDU don't care about the German economy anymore'

Now that was a knee-slapper!

I was going to say all the lefty outrage at Miliband's wooden, nationalistic speech (EIN VOLK EIN REICH) given that the LRC at its founding conference in 1900 threw out a motion calling for 'a distinct party... based upon the recognition of the class war', but then there doesn't seem to be any....

Funny #1: In my federal state, the Federation of Expellees (pretty much the dinosaurs of German nationalism) are the only ones to commemorate German Unity Day

Funny #2: Newspaper say Germany could do well with some more patriotism

And I was like, nah look at Greece dude! Certainly don't need them fash patrolling the streets kthx.

"I have said it before and I will say it again: the election on Nov. 6, 2012 for the office of president is the day of decision for America. Four more years of Obama will bring absolute socialism to America. Our children and grandchildren will never know the greatness of America that we have experienced.

Things like this prove the necessity for going beyond the current dimensions of Communist theory. a good article, which would be perfect if only it added a solution. the solution, which may not be known to the author. Syriza, KKE, KOE etc are all played out, they need a new theory. Syriza should seriously consider taking up BOB AVAKIAN’S NEW SYNTHESIS. this is the way forward.
i hope this helps the cause of revolution in Greece

I usually get up in the morning and have a good shout at the news, but my routine was interupted by this stellar bit of satire today,
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19921072

I know that the Nobel Peace Prize is an utterly meaningless thing, but it did give me a bit of a laugh.

(paraphrasing) I serve the people who pay their taxes, the taxpayers. Unfortunately, I routinely have to handle and deal with the people who don't pay taxes.

On behalf of our classmates, I ask and beg you to publicly announce that you are withdrawing from the speech at UCCS. And that you and your wife Bonny will not be attending our Class of 1977 Academy reunion. We will give you until this Wednesday night to do this. If you refuse to do it then we will pray the Psalm 109. We will pray at home and at church. Our families will pray it together. We will pray to the Lord to stop your poison. We will pray the Psalm against you and your wife and all those who give you sanctuary and protection in Colorado Springs.

Let me be clear. None of us will harm you or your wife. That would be illegal and wrong. It is not our place to mete out the justice and punishment you and your followers deserve and have earned. We won't have to. The Lord will. It is our God-given right to pray for His intervention and protection from your evil. Even under the Constitution you worship as an idol in place of the Son of God.

Oh my fucking god... never thought we still had them around. That said I take great pleasure in Stalinists calling them revisionists while the DDR guys think they were doing what Lenin taught them to do.

16:40 BST We have been hearing reports of police guarding branches of Starbucks in central London to prevent UK Uncut protesters occupying cafés. It seems that the police have been successful in stopping an occupation so far but business can't be great for a café that looks like a target for terrorism.

I'm guessing that the Radical Workers' feeder bloc in the Vice article, is the same as the one mentioned on Libcom, in which case I have a question to ask. So, which one of you is really Harriet Harman?
