Lenosphere Round-Up 10.23-10.30

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Richard (U.K.) blogs:

Just this morning, I was pondering a headline that said Obama was leading the polls in the ‘Buckeye State’. Two things occurred to me: 1) what the fuck is the ‘Buckeye State’?; 2) the reason they said he was ahead by 9 points in that state (turned out to be Ohio) was because of Obama’s massive lead among working class voters. Not just working class voters: “white working class voters”. Even those supposedly reactionary blue-collar workers in Pennsylvania give Barack a lead of 11%.

Farah (Lebanon) shows us a video:

Francis (Germany) shows us the statement by the International Socialist Tendency on the market crash:

Die folgende Erklärung wurde auf dem Koordinationstreffen der Strömung Internationaler Sozialisten am 13. Oktober 2008 herausgegeben.

Jan (Norway) blogs on the latest crisis in capitalism:

Som vi har sett – stater har nå lov til å blande seg inn i det frie markedet. Først finansmarkedet, deretter i andre deler av økonomien som står klar til å reddes. Få om noen av kapitalismens tilhengere vil snart vedkjenne deres sannhet av igår: Det er ikke lenger reguleringer det er noe galt med. På tvers av den politiske aksen diskuteres det heller hva slags reguleringer.

Che Wildwing (Egypt) blogs:

العيب ليس في الفشل
العيب المصري الصميم هو الاصرار على الفشل والعناد عليه وكأنه الصواب بذاته
كأن تجد مسئولا يقنعك أن لا أحد يتأثر في مصر بالأزمة الاقتصادية
مع العلم بأن شركته أو مصنعه أوتجارته والتى أهلته لتلك المسئولية قد طالتها خسارات فادحة

    That post sends me to several blogs, to explore.

    There is a football team at Ohio State University called The Buckeyes.
