On April 11 over 400 people packed the third public Portland Budget Hearing, which was organized by the City of Portland and which left many spilling out beyond the room where the hearing took place. More importantly, for the City Council there was an unexpected critical outpouring from the vast majority who attended.

text Obama’s Still Shopping for a Grand Bargain Shamus Cooke 2013-03-21 7:52 AM
President Obama’s recent closed-door sessions with Republican congressmen to reach a “grand bargain” has roused suspiciously little attention in the mainstream media. What scant reporting has occurred presents the following narrative: President Obama is a “middle ground” politician attempting to breach political divides with erstwhile Republican opponents. In reality these meetings are not between political opposites, but kindred spirits; perfectly matched ideologies that differ only in implementation, and only by degrees. (text/plain)

text Chavez Succeeded Where Obama Failed Shamus Cooke 2013-03-13 5:21 AM
When President Obama campaigned in 2008 in Portland, Oregon over 70,000 people came to hear his speech. And although I missed the event, I was intrigued by the raw emotion that the candidate’s words inspired in my community. Obama re-visited Oregon during his 2012 campaign, but the inspiration had faded from his voice, and the audience had drastically changed. The Oregonian explains: (text/plain)

text Democrats and Labor: A Tale of Abuse Shamus Cooke 2013-03-07 9:27 AM
The Democratic Party’s participation in the recent national “sequester” cuts is yet another big dent in their love affair with organized labor. But break-ups are often a protracted process. Before a relationship ends there is usually a gradual deterioration based on irreconcilable differences, until the split becomes inevitable. The decades-long marriage of labor unions and the Democratic Party is nearing such a divorce. Labor unions are becoming frustrated as the Democrats flaunt their affair with corporate America and Wall Street. (text/plain)

text President Hugo Chavez has Died Tamara Pearson 2013-03-07 1:24 AM
Workers Action joins the progressive peoples of the world in experiencing a loss with the passing of Hugo Chavez, president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. It will be up to the working class of Venezuela and its allies to carry forward the socialist revolution that Chavez so courageously launched and that has been serving as a beacon for revolutionaries around the globe, while surrounded by a capitalist world that is mired in war, poverty, and environmental destruction.

text AFL-CIO’s Own Oil Disaster Ann Robertson and Bill Leumer 2013-03-04 1:11 AM
With less than transparency, the AFL-CIO just issued a statement endorsing “expanding the nation’s pipeline system.” Although it did not explicitly endorse the Keystone XL pipeline, the labor federation nevertheless managed to extend its blessing to the project while hiding behind vague generalities. However, the logic of its position is unambiguous: the federation is in favor of extending pipelines in general and without qualification; the Keystone XL is a pipeline. Therefore logic compels us to infer that the federation supports the extension of the Keystone XL pipeline. (text/plain)

text Obama Wades Deeper Into Syria’s Morass Shamus Cooke 2013-03-04 12:39 AM
The recent announcement that the United States would increase its “non lethal” military aid to Syria’s rebels shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Some speculated that Obama — having been repeatedly proved wrong about the Syria government’s stability — would leave Syria in silent humiliation. (text/plain)

text Austerity USA Begins March 1st Shamus Cooke 2013-02-27 12:55 AM
U.S. politicians have cried wolf over austerity long enough for the public to ignore them. A perfect time, then, for politicians to actually unleash the wolves. Barring an unlikely last minute deal, here’s a short list of some of the massive, national bi-partisan-created austerity cuts, according to the New York Times. (text/plain)

text What the 1% Heard During Obama’s State of the Union Speech Shamus Cooke 2013-02-21 8:43 AM
When President Obama speaks, most Americans hear what he wants them to hear: lofty rhetoric and a “progressive” vision. But just below the surface the president has a subtly-delivered message for the 1%, whose ears prick up when their buzzwords are mentioned. Obama’s state of the union address was such a speech — a pro-corporate agenda packaged with chocolate covered rhetoric for the masses, easy to swallow, but deadly poisonous. (text/plain)

text Dissent, ethical human rights, to create 'thinking culture' for progress. Anthony Ravlich 2013-02-12 6:33 PM
Dissent, shut down by neoliberalism, is needed to take NZ from a 'stupid culture' to a 'thinking culture' to enable progress particularly needed following the massive earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ's second largest city. I consider an ethical human rights, development, globalization is a far superior over-arching plan than neoliberalism. (text/plain)

text Obama’s Shakedown of Medicare Shamus Cooke 2013-02-12 7:26 AM
In a political era of corporate dominance it was inevitable that doublespeak would become the official language of Washington, DC. Now “cuts” to social programs are referred to as “savings,” while the destruction of these programs is “reform.” This is the essence of President Obama’s doublespeakish “Race to the Top” public education “reform,” as well as his yet-to-be-announced deficit plan based on Medicare “savings.” (text/plain)

text More Austerity Cuts Coming to the States Shamus Cooke 2013-02-08 12:18 AM
The Great Recession has quietly devastated public services on a state-by-state basis, with Republican and Democratic governors taking turns leading the charge. Public education has been decimated, as well as health care, welfare, and the wages and benefits of public sector workers. The public sector itself is being smashed. Since the recession began, states have made combined austerity cuts of at least $337 billion, according to the Center of Budget and Policy Priorities. (text/html)
