Racism in America… Global Warming… Raif Badawi…
In writing about Senator Bernie Sanders, William Greider shares insight in Bernie Sanders Explains Why You Should Care About What’s Happening to Greece for The Nation: Here’s the secret of Bernie’s politics. He is relentlessly, stubbornly substantive—grounded in the guts and mechanics of governing. He is not given to cheap rhetoric or sleazy hits on […]
The only votes that I’ve cast for a president of the United States of America that I can still feel pride in was my vote for Jimmy Carter in 1976 and 1980. Here’s why: 35 years after leaving office, President Carter is still fighting for the country he served in war and peace. [Unlimited money […]
I helped make history last evening, joining more than 100,000 Americans in all 50 states to begin the grassroots organizing process. There was a more than 60-year age-spread in the room and we shared a lot of stories. While the gathering was overwhelmingly positive, hints of concern popped up in different moments, mostly on issues […]
Grassroots are cracking apart generations of petrified American politics to allow sunshine into the dark corners created by billions of dollars heaped up by the tiniest of minorities. I was hopeful last evening when I attended this meeting. I am even more so now. How does it feel to make history? Only weeks into Bernie’s […]
And why I’m supporting him with both my time and my money. Dear Jeff, As I travel across the country, I am constantly struck by the level of enthusiasm and engagement there is for the political process. Everywhere I go, from Portland, Maine to Phoenix, Arizona, Americans are ready to discuss the critical issues facing […]
Here in Cleveland we have the Cleveland Police Force, the Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority Police Force, the Regional Transit Authority Police Force, the, well, you get the idea. Why do we have so many police forces? I have no feckin’ idea, but the plethora of authority figures, all reporting to and trained by disparate hierarchies […]
No, not in the 2016 election, though I think Sanders would trounce Cruz there, but in a perfectly legal debate on the floor of the United States Senate. Bernie Sanders could participate in a one-on-one, leftwing versus right debate with Ted Cruz during the presidential primary, without violating restrictive rules set by the Democratic and […]

Another police car video of the arrest of a black woman that led eventually to her death, supposedly a suicide days later in a Texas jail, once again dramatizes the lack of professionalism in police departments throughout the nation. Sandra Bland, a 28-year old woman in Texas to start a dream job at a black […]
In other Badawi news: This could be Raif’s chance – ask for his freedom.
Two days after I wrote about the kind heart of Roeland Park, Kansas, police officer Mark Engravelle and his actions in a Walmart parking lot, we get this story about Engravelle’s evil and unqualified brother, Deputy Frank Serio and his actions in a Walmart parking lot. An Orleans Parish sheriff’s deputy shot at a suspected […]
I’ve re-read Jon Schwarz’s two-part interview with Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) this morning and I’m growing increasingly dissatisfied with Sarbanes’ Government By The People Act. Perhaps he’s being pragmatic, but I find the assumptions regarding money in politics offensive. People say, “I already can’t stand these politicians, why would I want to underwrite your campaign?” […]
If all you knew about police officers in my country was what you saw and heard in the past year or so in our media (including Have Coffee Will Write), you would be convinced that they were a bad lot. Yes, plenty of problems exist, many of them deeply systematic, but most police officers are […]
I’ve never been a late-night television person, I’m a lark not an owl, but I have followed David Letterman’s Top Ten Lists over the years, so I’m happy that, even in retirement, Letterman hasn’t really hung up hat. On Friday night, sporting a post-retirement beard and appearing with his friends Martin Short and Steve Martin […]
Our house guest, a cousin from Wales, thinks having John Oliver’s job—telling Americans how fucked up we are—would be his dream job. Senate Intelligence Committee Report On Torture.
Unions and collective bargaining work because masses of relatively weak and disorganized individuals can come together and build organizations that rival and even surpass those of much smaller, but wealthier and more powerful groups. Our founders understood this principle when they began our most important document with the words We the People of the United […]
Mano Singham has written again and again that members of Congress are perfectly capable of coming together in harmony and bipartisan harmony when the issue at hand rises from the needs of their billionaire corporate masters. Our own Rob Portman is more than happy to co-sponsor a bill with the dark side when our Oligarchy […]
