Hurry! Hurry! Get yer tickets right here! Just when ya thought the tent had been deflated, the clowns find a way to get it up again.

Chaffetz has but one job - vicious, inventive political distraction. He is the barker for the smallest of the carnival rings - The tent of clowns busily throwing fake paper water out of their oversized hats and running over others with their gigantic tricycles. …

My 1%

Bernie Sanders (my choice for President) has received donations from about 689,000 people.

My first thought was – is that all?

But then I did some research. In a typical presidential election, the total number of donors to any political candidate is 1% of the US Population.

Clinton’s campaign has about 400,000 donors.…

While there are countless reasons why Bernie Sanders’ adoption of a Racial Justice platform that tackles violence against African Americans is both extraordinary and unprecedented, certainly one reason must be that the platform in effect charges our government with the responsibility to practice nonviolence toward African Americans in particular and people of color generally. In fact, Sanders’ platform – the adoption of which was instigated…

Toxic babies

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

How many people know that children are being born with toxins already in their bodies, some of which are known to cause cancer and other problems? It’s scary, but certainly not surprising given the messed up environment in which we all live these days. 

Tests that have been done on the umbilical cord blood of newborns show tons of chemicals already in their bodies, among them flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds which are found in the…

Don't Take Democracy for Granted

Does America have the example of Honduras in its future?

In late 2008, the Honduran military deposed left-wing President Manuel Zelaya.  This was not your typical Banana Republic coup since the cause was not the vaunting ambition of some strutting, swagger-stick brandishing general but gridlock between an immovable president of one party…

Is the grass really greener on the other side of the barbed wire fence?

Have you ever been driving down a country road and seen a cow with its head and neck extended through a barbed wire fence grazing on the grass on the other side? Even though the grass is just as good on the cow’s side of the fence, this animal will actually risk injury from the barbed wire, and often does in the process of sticking out its neck to eat the same grass already within inches. What does that say about the cow’s nature and the truth of the situation? It says that the…

The Failure of the Politics of Fear and Resentment: Republican Shibboleths, Bugaboos, and Things That Go Bump in the Night

Republicans have suffered more than an election defeat, they’ve seen the collapse of a decades-long political strategy: The constant and continued use of white working class fear and resentment of black people in order to consolidate, maintain and, when and where possible, expand their base...
