WHAT IS PRESIDENT OBAMA HIDING FROM US…?

May 14th, 2015

The measure to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty failed in the U.S. Senate yesterday 52-45 with all but one Democrat—Senator Tom Carper of Delaware—voting against the measure. So who can read the text of the TPP? Not you, it’s classified. Even members of Congress can only look at it one section at a time […]

CAN OTPOR GO GLOBAL…?

March 9th, 2015

I think that Srdja Popovic must be channeling Abbie Hoffman. “So there they were, our idols, [the rock band Rimtutituki] driving round Republic Square in circles in a truck, singing,” says Popovic. “They looked more like generals than rockers. And what they were singing was stuff like: ‘There’s no brain under that helmet’ and ‘If […]

BROWN WANTS ACCOUNT OF HSBC TAX CHEATS…

February 8th, 2015

[Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown] a leading member of the Senate banking committee is calling on the US government to explain what action it took after receiving a massive cache of leaked data that revealed how the Swiss banking arm of HSBC, the world’s second-largest bank, helped wealthy customers conceal billions of dollars of assets. The […]

NO ONE HIRES TROUBLEMAKERS…

September 20th, 2014

When Precious Daniels lay down in front of the Blue Cross Blue Shield building in Detroit on a chilly morning in November 2009, she wasn’t giving her future job prospects much thought. She was, however, thinking about all of the money the insurance company was spending on its lobbyists. A supporter of the Affordable Care […]

OH WELL, I’M DONE WITH ELIZABETH WARREN…

August 29th, 2014

[Update @ 1140: Mano Singham is also not pleased and offers a prescription below…] The last time Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views on the Israeli attack on Gaza – on July 17 – she, as Rania Khalek put it, “literally ran away” without answering. But last week, the liberal Senator appeared for one […]

SO, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT…?

July 6th, 2014

I finished reading Elizabeth Warren’s A Fighting Chance yesterday and what follows are passages that grabbed my attention. In the wake of the disappointing performance of President Barack Hussein Obama, I am hesitant to get behind yet another Democrat, but I have liked and been public in my support of Warren in the past and […]

COLLEGE IS PLAYED ON A CROOKED TABLE…

June 19th, 2014

On Tuesday, my home town newspaper, The Marietta Times, asked the poll question: Would a tuition guarantee convince you to attend college? The question was really about the continued rise in college tuition costs and, as I noted in a comment: The factors driving college tuition increases are multitudinous, and no one change will fix […]

JUSTICE FOR ALL THE REALLY, REALLY RICH…

June 8th, 2014

There is no question that the Occupy Wall Street movement alarmed the ruling classes because of its exposure of the class war being waged in this country by wealthy against the rest of us. The Daily Show talks about how the law enforcement and justice systems are tilted so heavily in favor of the oligarchy, […]

FREE CECILY…

May 6th, 2014

Molly Knefel writes: The verdict in the biggest Occupy related criminal case in New York City, that of Cecily McMillan, came down Monday afternoon. As disturbing as it is that she was found guilty of felony assault against Officer Grantley Bovell, the circumstances of her trial reflect an even more disturbing reality – that of […]

SOLON MAYOR ENDORSES ANTHONY FOSSACECA…

February 20th, 2014

Anthony Fossaceca, candidate for Ohio House District 6, writes: In 2012, we knew that to have any chance of winning our race, we had to win Solon. It’s the largest city in the district and it acts as the geographical corner of the “backwards L” that is the 6th. We placed considerable time and attention […]

BUT, THEY DO MANAGE TO KEEP THE MONEY…

January 29th, 2014

I understand Derf’s frustration, my own reaction upon reading this bit of obscenity in the news was similar, but we make an error when we pretend that just because the people holding the money didn’t actually earn the money, they must be idiots. That may be the case, as it was with a few monarchs […]
