Donald Trump Admits He Says Horrible Things Just To Keep People Interested In Him

One says outrageous things to get attention when one is a teenager, not a grown man or woman, to do otherwise is to look foolish or pathetic. However in Trump’s case, I would also extend my analysis to the audience as well, for giving him the attention he so desperately seeks. In elections past, I […]

On Kenneth Thorpe’s Analysis of Senator Sanders’ Single-Payer Reform Plan

 I have had it with all of the naysayers each time Bernie Sanders or one of his proposals is brought up, they only say the same things over and over again, as if repetition makes it true. We have had decades of either dead center, center right or conservatism, we haven’t had a refreshing breath […]

Bernie Sanders And Elizabeth Warren May Have Just Saved Consumers $14 Billion

It’s about time, though I have to say that it fills me with pride to see that the names Warren, Sanders and Markey throughout the article. I haven’t had cable in years, but my mother has been fighting on a regular basis with Time Warner Cable, they who know nothing about customer service, though they […]

Gov. Jerry Brown Is Trying To Reverse A Draconian Sentencing Law He Signed

California is often the United States social, economic and political laboratory, I hope Governor Brown is successful with his initiative because the inmates in California have been through a lot, from abuses and hunger strikes to overcrowding. I have read several articles pertaining to the explosive level of crime in the 1970’s and its link […]

Federal Prisons Are In Crisis. Congress And The President Need To Step Up.

Our War on Drugs has gone sideways so terribly, it seems daunting to tackle. We not only have a private prison system, one which will fight tooth and nail to hang onto its profits, but we also have a school to prison pipeline system, well established in some states, that starts our criminal justice system […]

This Election Needs Michael Bloomberg (Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle)

I disagree with Robert Kuttner’s assessment of Bernie Sanders, clearly Kuttner is in the HRC camp and doesn’t appreciate what Bernie Sanders is attempting to do, bring a political revolution not only to the presidential elections, but to elections across the board and activism everywhere. I do however agree with Kuttner’s disdain for another billionaire […]

Bernie Sanders Struggles To Say Why He Doesn’t Support Reparations

I have no problem with Bernie Sanders stumbling on the question of reparations, it’s complicated and we are in uncharted waters so why wouldn’t he stumble? I do admire the fact Bernie Sanders immediately went to solutions, such as addressing the very high unemployment rate for African-Americans, especially the youth, the inequities in public education, […]

What Trader Joe’s Can Teach Us About Treating Workers Well

I normally never shop at Trader Joe’s because they aren’t local to my area, but I went to one with my mother in New York and I was instantly struck at how friendly the workers were, either behind the register or stocking shelves, it reminded me of the ambience at Costco, another company who treats […]

Michigan Governor Throws Government Workers Under The Bus For Flint Disaster

The criminality of what happened to Flint Michigan must be dissected and reviewed numerous times to make sure that we have indeed learned our lessons in terms of community and resource management. My first inclination is to blame the knee jerk readiness to privatize everything in society, my second impulse is to assign blame on […]

Mitch McConnell Ready To Give President Unlimited War Powers

McConnell is already plotting the ways to make the transition for a war-time President as smoothly as possible, which is why it is imperative for us to nominate and then elect Bernie Sanders as our next President. I would bet that Mitch McConnell wouldn’t mind too much if Hilllary Clinton became President because she has […]
