It is deeply disappointing that President Obama and his administration have chosen to support Monsanto's profits and consolidation of the agricultural sector over the livelihoods of farmers and health of consumers.

The State of Our Democracy

“The insurmountable hurdle for so-called populist movements is having the nerve to attack the rich instead of the poor. Even after rich almost destroyed the entire global economy through their sheer unrestrained greed and stupidity, we can’t shake the peasant mentality that says we should go easy on them, because the best hope for our collective prosperity is in them creating wealth for us all.

Okay America. Now it's YOUR turn!!

The Tunisians are doing it. The Egyptians are doing it. When are we gonna do it!

Can You Hear Me Now?

Yes he's leaving! No, wait…he's just transferring power to the Vice-President and staying until September. What a ride today has been. At this writing it is about 7.30 a.m. in Cairo at the beginning of what is going to be a sunny warmish Friday. Watching the news today we got stronger and stronger messages from the White House beginning with euphoria that Mubarak would probably leave but then as the day wore on, pessimism as Mubarak took to the air waves to say he was staying using unclear language as to how "change" would happen.

Ron Paul will get to explain why a certain clique of Federal Reserve monitorees habitually misspells and re-spells and even again misspells their entities entered into the Federal Reserve monitoring data.

Free to make a choice?…

not if you're dead.

Thom, in arguing with seton motley (?) you missed the key rebuttal to his libertarian statement against federal food safety… you aren't 'free' to choose better (next time) if you die (this time) from e. coli. I mean they found pathogens in freakin' spinach and peanut butter…
