Israel and the U.S. strike yet another blow in favor of injustice and oppression...

The U.S. media doesn't consider this news? At least I can't find it on any of the "major" news sources:

182 countries vote for Palestinian right to self-determination

Announcements of drop in Jobless Rate obscures worsening situation.

315,000 left the work force, Seasonal employment, wage levels and benefits that people are being hired at, underemployment, etc. The actual rate of unemployment remains around 22% to 25% while a variety of other phenomena illustrate how the countries domestic economic activity continues to ratchet down. Sadly, all you see out of Washington from both parties are acts to make thi

News of Housing Market Recovery is abject horsepucky – “Foreclosure sales still pummeling home prices”

And let’s remember some basic math: 10 is 10% of 100 but the same 10 is only 1% of 1,000, my point being when you are at the bottom of a quantitative measure’s volume any increase is amplified when you state the increase as a percentage of the base.

The New Ugglesome Trinity

A Capital Idea Part 98: Economic Democracy

Framing healthcare

I keep hearing that we have the best healthcare system in the world. I would say that we arguably have the best facilities, the best technology the best research, the best personnel but when that is not available to the majority it is hardly the best system.

We need to stop supporting the frame that we have the best system.

The pundits never saw this coming, but they should have. The Republican Party has been running a scam on its base for decades now, and voters were bound to discover this scam sooner or later.
