SORT BY Relevancy
Carson Buckingham knew from childhood that she wanted to be a writer and began, at age six, by writing books of her own, hand-drawing covers, and selling them to any family member who would pay (usually a dime) for what she referred to as “classic literature.” When she ran out of relatives, she came to the conclusion that there was no real money to be made in self-publishing, so she studied writing and read voraciously for the next eighteen years, while simultaneously collecting enough rejection slips to re-paper her living room…twice.
When her landlord chucked her out for, in his words, “making the apartment into one hell of a downer,” she redoubled her efforts, and collected four times the rejection slips in half the time, single-handedly causing the first paper shortage in U.S. history.
But she persevered, improved greatly over the years, and here we are.
Carson Buckingham has been/is a professional proofreader, editor, anthologist, newspaper reporter, copywriter, technical writer, novelist, short story writer and comedy writer. She loves reading and gardening; but not at the same time. Though born and raised in Connecticut, she lives in Arizona now—and Connecticut is glad to be rid of her!

On this edition of Carson's Corner, Bob flys solo this week, as he discusses some of the issues facing the working class. First, as Election Boycott Advocate and former campaign manager of Ralph Nader Christopher Driscoll said on this show, there are so many bubbles in the economy that are bound to burst. We'll discuss this, plus, the effects of income inequality are part of the new normal of capitalism; and of course, Bob will discuss why he is an Election Boycott Advocate, as well as some up-coming plans for a new show television show with a member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement.
It was a pretty exciting weekend. Bob Carson and I attended the annual Workers World Party (WWP) conference here in NYC. We will share our thoughts and experiences and I will have a few clips from some of the speakers. Perhaps a member or two will call in and speak with us as well. - Caleb Maupin - I'm looking at you:)
For those who are interested in social justice and organizing for a better society that puts human needs above all else (corporate profits), I think this will be an excellent program.
I am not a member but I consider myself a freind and ally of the party. Please join us for the live streaming of the show or catch it in the archived edition at www.thecommonsprojectnetwork.com a day after airing.
Share this link with your friends and allies. And, if you were at the conference, feel free to call in and share your thoughts with us.

Today "In the Pickle Barrel" we are starting our look at possible President Want-to-bes" for the the 2016 Elections. Yep, itis less than 2 years until we have to make another big decision.
Today, we will look at Dr, Ben Carson. Is he a breath of fresh air? Is he another Barack Obama? Does he have a chance to win?
The expected Presidential Amnesty appears to be a done deal. It is expected President Obama will indeed sign an Executive Order granting 10K-20K Illegal Aliens to remain in the United States. Obviously, there are a lot of opposing feelings about this action.
How will the Republicans and other conservatives respond to the action? Will they roll over and say so what? Will they take the case to court? What can they do?
These topics and more starting at 8AM-10AM EST.
There's room for you "In the Barrel" so jump in and let's chat.
On this episode of Carson's Corner, we welcome Harry Cason of the Zeitgeist Movement to discuss the up-coming People's Climate March and the October 5th, Zeitgest Media Festival, at the National Black Theatre, 2031 5th Ave., New York, NY.
Harry Cason has been teaching political science at the The City University of New York - College of Staten Island for over twenty years, and has been involved in the anti-war and social rights movement even longer.
Cason is presently writing a book on: U.S. Relations with Spain under Francisco Franco, and Spain’s Eventual Liberalization.
Cason is a member-supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement, because of its holistic-systemic response to the problems we presently face in the world, as opposed to the piecemeal and tweaking response that is typically offered-up these days.
On this midnight edition of Carson's Corner, Bob will discuss the importance of non-compliance as it pertains to our many different systems. Furthermore, we will touch on the so called 'War on Drugs" and how it relates to our capitalist system. Plus, Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates, and Anti-Capitalist Radio, hosted by David Arthur Smithers and Gabriel Pierre are planing a big show come election day on Tuesday. I'll talk more about this and more

On this episode of Carson's Corner, we will continue our analysis of the issues raised in Paul Street's new book, "They Rule: The 1% vs Democracy." We will discuss the dominance of the financial sector, and how we went from industrial to finance.
Yesterday, host Bob Carson wrote this statement for http://electionboycott.weebly.com/
In 2008, I supported President Obama (although I didn’t vote, and have never voted in an election) under the belief that President Obama was the alternative to the conditions we faced at that time. Shortly after his election, it became apparent that Obama was indeed a more effective evil in advancing the corporate agenda of the ruling class. He famously told Wall Street executives, the very people that melted our economy, “I am here to help.”
A wise man named Jacques Fresco once said, “Politicians are not elected to change things, they are elected to keep things the same.” Keeping things the same entails a furtherance of the corporate state, which makes life in America unbearable for those not in the ruling class. Since it is obvious you cannot work within the system for change, boycotting the elections is the most effective form of dissent. The very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again.
Bob will break this down further.

Well it seems that another "microwave hero" has popped to the top for Republicans. It looks like Dr. Ben Carson is taking a good look at running for the nation's top spot. Although Dr. Carson suffers from some of the very same lack of experience that Republicans contiinue to complain the the current president does not have. Dr. Carson is a doctor, a brillant Neurosergeon, but has zero political experience. As far as we know, he has never run a business, although in his position at John-Hopkins he was responsible for a staff of people.
There is little doubt that Dr. Carson is an amazing man with an amzaing story, but is that enough? We will bat it around today. Feel free to call and give us your thoughts on the matter.
