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.

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)

text The Argument for Amnesty: An Immigration Policy That Works for All Mark Vorpahl 2013-02-06 9:53 PM
Millions experience the repressive nature of the U.S. immigration system on a daily basis, lifting its need for reform to a level of urgency. And fixing this broken program is integral to building the unity among U.S. workers that is required to challenge corporate America’s attacks on our wages, rights, public social services, and living conditions.

text Austerity — the 1%’s Global Battle Cry Mark Vorpahl 2012-11-29 2:00 PM
Whether we are left with the Fiscal Cliff or a Grand Bargain, workers in the U.S. face massive cuts to programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, unemployment insurance, Food Stamp assistance and other needed social safety nets. This is an example of “austerity” which has largely been pursued in the U.S. until now, on a statewide and local level. (text/html)

text Why is Obama Silent Over the New Congo War? Shamus Cooke 2012-11-27 12:37 PM
The last Congo war that ended in 2003 killed 5.4 million people, the worst humanitarian disaster since World War II. The killing was directly enabled by international silence over the issue; the war was ignored and the causes obscured because governments were backing groups involved in the fighting. Now a new Congo war has begun and the silence is, again, deafening. (text/plain)
