“Expiring jobless benefits to lower US Unemployment Rate”
Excerpt from the article:
Just listening to TV/FreeSpeech on west coast. 11:40pm, Tues Dec 3. Your rant on Banks relative to Detroit. Yes on their exploitation and it is not exclusive to Detroit. Racism enters into it BUT it is heavily loaded towards class differentiation over-riding everything. It does not matter whether one is black, white, red, yellow, brown...what matters is class.
Why is there hardly any coverage in the Media or Press about the current status of these talks? The Palestinian Delegation just resigned. How about bringing this up.
It Must be Obama's Fault that One World Trade Center Eclipses Willis Tower as America's Tallest Building
Obama is president. Obama is from Chicago. It must be his fault that New York City's One World Trade Center has overtaken Chicago's Willis Tower as America's tallest building. One World Trade Center, also known as Freedom Tower, is 1368 ft. in height to roof, and 1776 t. in pinnacle height, or height of structure. The WIllis Tower, formerly called the Sears Tower, is 1400 ft. in height to roof, and is 1729 ft. in pinnacle height, or height of structure.
The public sector has frozen COLA and cut deferred benefits over three decades. Within the past few years millions of state and local employees have suffered layoffs and cascades of earnings. The loss of 300,000 manufacturing jobs in Detroit was not the fault of public sector workers or municipal garbage collectors.
Shortly after dinner with friends a few weeks ago, the conversation turned to politics and current events. When the subject of the Trans Pacific Partnership, (a new world trade agreement being negotiated in secret) came up, eyes began to glaze over and one by one my friends picked up their I-phones and dropped out of the conversation. Such is the state of the American condition. Americans are so weary and overwhelmed by the problems facing our country they simply cannot deal with one more attack on the sovereignty and well being of the American People.
Robert Reich does as much editorializing as Paul Krugman on a given week on the Huffington Post. He also produced a great documentary film, Inequality for All. I read the NYT at my local library several times a week and, yes their articles are very cleverly written in that a lot of their writers seem to be tow the same corporate line. All in all, I think the HuffPost is more intellectually stimulating and informative, despite being a news aggregate web portal full of fluff, than the NYT or any other major newspaper I can think of on any given day.
