Abortion to be de-politicized

After watching you on RT last night, it came to me that the GOP congresspersons can be called out on the abortion issue. In last night's program, you outlined how Supreme Court decisions can be invalidated by having the Congress pass a law to overturn their decision. If that is so, then why hasn't a Republican congressperson create a bill to overturn Roe v. Wade?? I'll tell you why. If Roe v. Wade were overturned, the abortion issue would become a non-political issue since the law would then read that a woman has no choice over her choice to abort.

Congress must face their legal responsibility.

Like children the “The Party of No” is acting silly.

State of NC rips off food-stamp recipients?

Is it the state or the fed who decided to take cuts of the most vulnerable people in the country? In North Carolina a letter was sent out in May saying that people who received food-stamps would be getting their food-stamps on new days, for example if you normally got your food-stamps on the 8th of the month you would not be getting them on the 13th of the month. Some food-stamp recipients would be waiting as long as 2 weeks to reach their new day.

economic policy requires knowledge of past successful and not so successful policies

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (George Santayana). When you make statements about modern economic policy, be sure you understand what happened during the past 100 years before condemning our nation’s social organizations.


Three days after the Fukushima disaster began, Chris Huhne, Energy and Climate Change Secretary for the United Kingdom, worked with nuclear officials from Westinghouse, Areva and EDF in developing a PR campaign designed to downplay the severity of the disaster. One of the comments made by Huhne’s office “We need to ensure the anti-nuclear chaps and chapesses do not gain ground on this. We need to occupy the territory and hold it.

IRA execution of Colonel Smyth (1920)

On the 17 July 1920, Colonel Smyth was assassinated by the IRA in Country Club in Cork city for making a speech to RIC men encouraging the murdering of Irish civilians during the war of Independence.

Republican debt plan

The Beserkers

Deep in the lore of Nordic literature lie accounts referencing The Berserkers.

YAF rounds up many of its usual favorite suspects, just in time for the BIG MELTDOWN on the first weekend in August!

What timing August 1-to-6 ... When you open this link you'll see. C'mon, we all need a good laugh, and put it on their tab, just like Paul Ryan's expensive taste in wines, or whine.

Does anyone know where Hillary is?

The latest behavior of our president has me sorry I did'nt support Hillary, though I'm afraid that she might be acting the same way, since Obama surrounded himself with Clinton retreads.

Share Holder Value

The evolution of the corporations is what's changed our economy to its finalization bent, which has caused our loss of jobs. I have been reading a book, 23 Things They Don't Tell About Socialism, by Cheng, that in simple terms explains capitalism and the terms like "free market" so that we the people can understand and read through the political speak when an economist or a politician starts ranting about free markets and taxes on the wealthy.

A Capital Idea Part 77: The Mondragon Cooperative

Yesterday I checked out a special work cooperative I have heard of from time to time, one that may serve as a model of cooperative resource sharing, a sort of resource based economy nested within the larger financially capitalistic economy -- The Mondragon Cooperative.
