Donald Trump has told his close network of racist followers , that he will be announcing when he takes over the White House the first few weeks will be spent cleansing the buildings to remove what he calls as malicious spirits.

Trump has told his inner group that he daily carries a clove of garlic in his pocket, although thought to protect the user from vampires, it also is an age old remedy to ward off evil spirits.

Next ECONOMY: Flourishing in a NOT-for-PROFIT World?

For-profits are so over, say authors. Part of a Tyee series on capitalism’s crisis.

Jennifer Hinton and her co-author Donnie Maclurcan foresee an emerging economic alternative to state socialism and corporate capitalism: not-for-profit enterprise as the primary mode of business.


Its been poven in a court of law that baby powder can kill you, Johnson and Johnson Baby Powder in particular.

' Last fall, Smith represented Deane Berg, a Sioux Falls, South Dakota woman with ovarian cancer in the first-ever product liability case against Johnson and Johnson (J&J) involving baby powder.'

The jury found that J&J was negligent and failed to warn Berg that talcum-based powders were linked to ovarian cancer, and that, in fact, J&J did cause Berg’s cancer.'


Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall etched with the names of over 58,000 young American boys killed in action ,the average age 19, fighting the war that even in death refuses to be called a war by their country. 58,000 young boys who trusted their country would never send them into harms way needlessly. What a betrayal.

Drug prices Vs. CEO Pay

CEO pay is determined by the Board of Directors (good old boys). One part of their pay is incentive pay amounting to usually millions. This incentive pay which is determined by the Board and is voted on by shareholders ( I always vpte AGAINST ) is based upon earnings growth. How do you create earnings growth? You jack the price of your product. If your product is food such as fish, the consumer can forgo the purchase of that food and eat something else. However if that product is a life saving drug and you forego it, you die! Therefore, th

Where’s Donald? Look! It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane—No, It’s ‘Crazy Donald’

While it is somewhat unethical to diagnose problems in patients which have not been formally examined, I don’t have a problem with this. After all, I am not a psychiatrist and I don’t play one on TV either. But I know crazy when I see it. The signs of crazy are all over Donald. As sure as Sarah Palin had a case of the simples, Donald has a case of the crazies. His helter skelter oratory spectacles are a good place to start after we deal with his vision problems.


Perhaps a fitting monument to George W Bush's presidency would be to build structures that would acknowledge his accomplishments.

I would suggest building 18 full size swimming pools on his ranch in Crawford Texas , 12 feet at the deep end and two at the shallow and filling them with blood, because that's how much blood is on the hands of George W Bush caused by his illegal, fraudulent and criminal invasion of Iraq.

Five Steps To Peace

There are five things we can choose now if changing our world ,and the self destructive direction in which it is moving ,is what we wish to achieve .

1. We can choose to acknowledge that some of our old beliefs about God and Life are no longer working .

2. We can choose to acknowledge that there is something we do not understand about God and Life ,the understanding of which will change everything .

3. We can choose to be willing for a new understanding of God and Life to now be brought forth ,an understanding that could produce a new way of life on our planet.


A black Harvard graduate millionaire tennis player was standing in front of a Five Star Hotel in New York City when he was knocked down and held on the ground by a white cop as a suspect in credit card fraud. While laying face down on the pavement the black victim of this crime said he feared for his life. Meanwhile the drug gangs out in Brooklyn are shooting up each other like the Viet Nam War endangering innocent bystanders.

Property tax funded schools, sundown towns, and restrictive deed covernants

In northern states there were not the same kind of segregation laws as in the south. I am most familiar with how this worked in the suburbs and near rural areas around New York City. In working class neighborhoods, we called this "restriction" and it would be in place in one town, but often not in the next. In the property deeds there would be covenant clauses that forbid the residence on the property by a whole list of groups of people but the most obvious group was African-Americans, but often also ethnic whites, Jews, Catholics, and Hispanics.

The Sisters Get Up to Their Necks in Donald Trump’s Posterior!

Two days ago and subsequent to Donald J. Trump’s “outreach” to “African-Americans” (to only white folks), former Trump former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski insinuates that Black venues and communities are too dangerous during an appearance on Anderson Cooper’s 360 (aired on CNN). Aside from the white, dog-whistle terminology that Lewandowski employs (I.e. “out of control…overrun, etc.”) there’s a lot to be said here, but as the old adage goes: “a picture is worth a thousand words”

The TPP and the USA

I'm not entirely sure why you only discuss America's viewpoint on the TPP. It's as if your vvote passes it. If any other country including Canada rejects it. IT IS DEAD!!!! The world is not about you.

Donald Trump, Black Version and the Trump Effect

I came “of age” in the 80’s and, like many young people in their college years, music defined that place and time of my life. Music probably had, and has, more of an impact in my life because I was a fairly accomplished musician at the time (chops too rusty now) working my way through undergraduate school by playing in a progressive-jazz band doing all manner of gigs from smoky dives in Redondo, to high school dances and proms. Though I was never a big R&B fan (R&B a.k.a. “Race Records”), I did love Prince; his musicianship is legendary.

When American Presidents Protect Foreign Governments...

If a blockbuster new report from Newsweek is any indication - a Donald Trump presidency would be one giant conflict of interest.

The problems stem from Trump's massive business empire - the Trump Organization.
