67 years ago today the United States dropped an atomic bomb over the city of Hiroshima, followed by a second three days later. The decision to use these weapons ended the war with Japan.

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
