The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Pianticously Ugly!

The Good! *The New York Times* Yesterday - the Times' editorial board officially endorsed the marriage equality ballot intiatives that will be voted on in four states on Election Day. In the endorsement - the paper urged residents of Maryland, Minnesota, Maine and Washington State to "not place their state so sharply on the wrong side of fairness." The editorial went on to say that, "the freedom to marry is a fundamental right that should not have to be won or defended at the ballot box." Unfortunately - the sad reality in America is that marriage equality does in fact have to be put to a vote. Let's hope that more and more Americans realize that everyone should have the right to marry whomever they want - and vote for marriage equality on Election Day

Greeks horrified...as Universal Healthcare is Dismantled

Just when the austerity-ravaged people of Greece thought things couldn't get any worse for them, their universal healthcare system is dismantled and turned into an American-style death system. As the New York Times reports this week, the Greek healthcare system that ensured coverage for all of its citizens before the financial crisis hit has today been completely decimated by technocrats and austerity-pushers. In the past, Greece provided universal care thanks to employers, individuals, and the government contributing to a fund to administer medical services to the entire population. Even those Greeks who lost their jobs still received health benefits for one year, and after those benefits expired, Greece made sure those individuals still received the healthcare they needed at no cost to them.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

Thom plus logo

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
