Hmmm – having just written the previous, unticked the box for the 94th time, posted the previous – the tick box has remained unticked – hooray, fingers crossed.
I can’t help thinking that these problems are responsible for the fewer numbers of participants. I read but rarely attempt to post.
One unresolved problem for me is that whatever i try i cannot unsubscribe from follow up replies to this thread.
Positive/ negative, Scottish/alien – we have all mind-sets to contend with/appeal to. It seems to me it’s a matter of presenting facts however we can, in whatever style, language, format . . . . ultimately it’s the same massage –
capitalism or socialism
“Don’t expect good news from me. Capitalism doesn’t produce such news.”
Keep it up please Alan – you’re doing a great job.
To return to the original question:
What about black poppies? – Black for death, for that is what war is. Black symbolises so much that is negative. Sad to say though it seems a majority of populations in large parts of the globe are somehow disconnected from even knowing where wars are currently being waged, even or especially when they are being waged and/or supported by their own politicians. As long as it’s ‘not here’ you don’t need to think about it too much.
“We’re Anglo-Saxons, and Anglo-Saxons stand up and are counted for what they believe in. If people can see the value in the cause then I think that Anglo-Saxon desire to do the right thing and to fight if you have to fight is still there and will always be there.”
How sick is that!
Watched a little of the performance in Paris today – those so-important leaders showing us just how cynical they are. How many wars are presently current, and how much are the arms companies profiting year on year.
Sick, sick, sick.
Phew, at last!
I’ve spent hours over days trying to get in to the forum and here I am , with nothing to say – except, having read the previous comments on this thread, I would only be repeating others’ frustrations.
Now I’ve found my way in I need a long rest and just hope I’ll get it right when i have another go tomorrow.
An update – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Makes Excuses for Scrubbing Website of Anti-War Stance – Makes Things Worse Posted on June 29, 2018 by willyloman When Mr. Smith goes to Washington, he doesn’t change it. Washington changes him. However Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to be changing before she even gets on the bus. Looks like she was made by the fake progressive group called the Democratic Socialists of America and had to cut a deal with them to curb her anti-war stance to get their neoliberal water-carrying assistance. As David Swanson told her in a Tweet, she better forget that deal and take up her previous position on the endless wars of aggression or the REAL LEFT is going to let her go on her own from here on out.
Thanks – but seems like it's not possible now anyway, and, quite frankly, is it a bother for anyone to get a long link compared with a short link? I don't know the answer to that but I do know a lot more clicking is needed to change a long link into a short one and then put it on here!
No offence taken, just hoped you'd laugh.Seriously though, my brain has a firm dislike of all the fiddling about necessary with computer use.
Yeah, yeah, yeah! Wait ''til you get to my age and you can't remember where you've put anything, never mind remember how to 'do' a tinyurl and insert it onto a forum, searching for the correct character, etc etc.I don't do funny faces and all that either – too much to learn and then remember for the next time! If I gave you a laugh, well that's fine – we all need one or two a day at least.J.

Sorry about long link, don't know how to change it to post on here!
Re 'serious journalists' – this one does not present our case but I believe he does present an accurate account of most mainstream media. He has been living in Nazareth for nearly 20 years.Published yesterday: https://www.jonathan-cook.net/blog/2018-06-11/corporate-media-illusions/May 30, 2018 at 10:18 am in reply to: URGENT CALL FOR NOMINATIONS TO FILL VACANT PARTY POSITIONS #131820
Hi Marcos, There are 4 of us on the publications committe – 1 in UK, 1 in Spain and 2 in Turkey.I believe most of the committees do their work and their communicating via the internet. You'd surely be an asset to one or other of the committees short of members.Go for it!
Here's another good one from Jonathan Cook;https://www.jonathan-cook.net/blog/2018-05-24/naomi-wolf-and-anti-semitisms-mystifcation/Trying to paste a sentence – unsuccessfully – which basically draws attention to a New Statesman article saying that the articulation of the socialist idea of the 1%/ class division is anti-semitic!!
