Can Photos From Gaza Help Blaze The Path To Peace?
(14 comments) It's easy to argue that graphic images of the carnage of war evoke lasting impressions on those who view them. Few people can forget the horrific photos from Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the atomic bomb or the suffering faces and emaciated bodies from the Holocaust. Indeed some of history's most memorable and haunting photographic images arise from war.

John McCain, A Veteran Was Demeaned In Your Name. Will You Step Up To Defend Her?

CNN Reignites The Death Panel Myth & Sparks My "Network" Moment
(9 comments) Corporate media perverted the plan. It afforded Sarah Palin, media's most caustic creation, round the clock amplification of her death panel misnomer. Rather than quell Palin's toxic distortions and present the plan factually, corporate media appropriated Palin's death panel fabrication and amplified it even more, spending weeks misrepresenting the plan and rendering it unrecognizable from its original form

In The Cold Climate of Politics, We'll Miss Elizabeth Edwards' Warmth
(3 comments) Palin, Angle and Brewer are antithetical to womanhood as I know it. Womanhood, as I know it, embodies the characteristics of Elizabeth Edwards: compassion, generosity, kindness and warmth. These right wing women are dispassionate and cold. They'd send a family to the street in winter without shelter or food.

(3 comments) At a time when Israel faces near universal condemnation for the May 30th killings of eight Turkish citizens and one Turkish American aboard the Gaza bound Mavi Marmara, and worldwide rebuke for its continued blockade of Gaza and ongoing expansion into Jerusalem and the West Bank, American midterm candidates still pandered for pro-Israel money and votes during this 2010 midterm election.

LA's Sheriff Baca Stirs Halloween Fear Against Marijuana Days Before The Election

Unions Are WRONG To Refuse To Build The Mosque
(37 comments) Honestly, just how weak can we Americans be? We flatten other nations to the ground. We decimate their schools, hospitals, hotels, apartment buildings, playgrounds and businesses. We kill and maim babies, children, teens, the elderly, women, men and animals. We destroy entire cities with aerial and ground attacks using weapons of mass destruction but we Americans can't tolerate memories of one horrible day nearly a decade ago.

Images In The Sand Connect Our Global Community
(6 comments) We who are selfish, who sacrifice our planet to fulfill desires not related to sustainment, are earth-perps. Every drowned polar bear incriminates us. Every oil asphyxiated dolphin, pelican and turtle inculpates us. Every decapitated mountain besmirches us. Every toxic landfill debases us.

Winograd vs. Harman in CA Primary: Will U.S. or Israel's Interests Come First?
(4 comments) Winograd's grassroots momentum so concerned her opponent that Harman retaliated with an ideological assault of minor relevance to most residents in her district. Rather than going toe to toe with Winograd on constituent specific matters, Harman chose Israel as her main campaign strategy. Though Harman and Winograd are both Jewish Americans, they hold radically different views on Israel.

Jon Karl & ABC Give Cheney A Sunday Valentine
Had Karl used this interview to take Cheney to task re: specific accusations from experts and scholars, Karl may have achieved a new found respect as a reporter. But he didn't. Like the corporate hacks before him, Karl towed the corporate line. He was dismissive of the public trust and disparaging of the best traditions of journalism by not digging for the truth.

If Karl honestly and brazenly takes Cheney to task, he just might deserve the This Week host position. If he does not, he'll remain an unremarkable hack enabling an unrepentant criminal.
