Xicanopwr: Immigration Reform To Wait Until Second Term

Xicanopwr.com critiques the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) and their willingness to make backroom deals, instead of appealing to the people.  Concludes that reform will be pushed to Obama’s second term. Their main mistake has been not fighting back hard and soon enough. As a consequence, CHC have conceded vast political terrain they had won after the [...]

The Decline Of Government As Authority Recalls The Decline Of The Church’s Authority

A few days ago, less than a week, I believe, I was listening to a report on KPFT or NPR and they were discussing the Glass-Steagall Act, the act which essentially limited banks from taking major lending risks. In 1999 the act was repealed. This repeal is largely blamed for having caused the financial crisis [...]

Chiahui Nahui Festival Promotes Danza Azteca to East End Youth In Houston

I could not have been prouder of and happier for Xavier Herrera, Danza Azteca Teokalli and all who participated in today’s Chiaui Nahui festival at Ripley House in Houston’s east end.  A little conjunto music, some rock conciente, ballet folklorico and art all came together in a beautiful way.  Words, and maybe even my little [...]

The Vision: A Grand Strategy for Our New Anahuac

I was reflecting a little on my approach to activism, organizing and nation-building.  I have always been very choosy as to what campaigns or actions I involve myself with.  I don’t engage in action for the sake of action. I guess real my bellwether regarding my own personal involvement with something is whether or not [...]

Congressional Redistricting: Courtesy of Latinos

My camarada, Stace of DosCentavos.net provides great information in his post about Congressional Redistricting. A report by the America’s Voice Educational Fund states that three of the four Congressional seats Texas stands to gain can be chalked up to Latino population growth…State Rep. Aaron Peña stated the Valley’s case for one of those seats…. Follow [...]

Spare Thoughts 11-17-09

Thinking I might turn Spare Thoughts into something semi-regular, semi-sarcastic (kinda like me). Hopeful Last Friday Handy Manny won the “Citizen” of the Year Award in the little town in which he does odd jobs. It is my hope that with his new-found influence he will push for a just immigration reform and citizenship for [...]

A few spare thoughts 11-11-09

Sad… Luis Arreola, La Raza Justice Movement Volunteer, suffered a stroke about a week ago.  He is back at a relative’s house.  He is walking and cognizant, so things look good for now.  For those of you who went with us to Hutto, he was the elderly man who came with our group.  He also [...]
