Since I published this on my other blog the other day, I have since got my new site set up as one can see. Ironically, my new advertisements are a bit on the bright, shiny side; not to mention the ‘word-highlight-hover-over’ type  I approved (and can unapprove). But hey, if Porsche wants to advertise on a godless pinko site, so be it:) -Todd (5.8.10)

I am in the midst of the most serious case of what one refers to as “writers block” since my college days. It was my intent to write on modern Utilitarianism and how this is somewhat counterproductive to the development of a modern and rational philosophical thought process in regard to the reality of political economy within a dialectical context. But…I just don’t want think too hard today.

I then had the idea of writing about the decline of the labor/union movement since the Carter administration. I do have some amount of expertise on the subject, but to fully explain the dynamics at play and the policies affecting the decline could not be neatly summarized in a brief two to three-thousand word article. Perhaps a series of articles on that issue sometime in the near future is a possibility. But today, I can’t go there.

On the eve of International Worker’s Day, otherwise known as May Day, I thought it fitting to close out the month with a celebration and remembrance of the struggles of the workers, the poor, and the oppressed throughout the world.

First, I would like to thank everyone thus far who has supported, read, subscribed and given words of encouragement to The Todd Blog. In just over a month, my little blog, which started merely as a means of filling some time and defending my name, has become something I am proud to put my name on–something that is enjoyed by an increasing number of leftists, artists, writers and free-thinkers every day. I sincerely hope that I continue to provide intelligent and thought provoking content on a daily basis (I’ll try at least) and continue to receive the overwhelming support, not only from the left, but all others who enjoy reading my stories of a life well-worn and well-lived–I’ll try to add a bit more non-political posts in the future for you folks. Again, I give genuine thanks to everyone who has helped make The Todd Blog something special and something that will continue to strive in the future. Now on to May Day…. continue reading…
