Is the Koch Brothers' Curriculum Coming to Your Child's School? The curriculum being taught to North Carolina students is filled with the Koch brothers' libertarian beliefs and ideologies, and a whole lot of misinformation on US history. A great deal of the curriculum focuses on the libertarian love affair with "limited government."

How Democrats in the South Will Rise Again While the demise of the "Southern Democrat" may be historic, it doesn't have to be permanent. Americans across the country, in red states from the Deep South to the Great Plains, favor the progressive ideas and policies that can get our country back on track. Someone just needs to reach out to them.

We Need to Start Holding Tax-Dodging Banksters Accountable Giant corporations like Apple and Google have come under fire in both the UK and the US recently for raking in massive profits, while shifting those profits overseas to avoid taxes. A report by the UK's Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that Apple, Microsoft, Google and Cisco Systems collectively earn interest while avoiding taxes on over $124 billion that's held overseas.

Why Black Friday Is a Bad Sign for the US Median household income has fallen by nearly 8 percent since 2000, and, according to the US Census Bureau, the middle class is taking home a smaller share of overall income in the US than ever before. One of the reasons for that is because good jobs and good wages have disappeared.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path? For several generations, Americans trusted our government's ability to improve living conditions for the working class. As a result, Democrats stayed in power for a long time. Then Reagan happened, and everything changed. The Democratic Party veered way off course while Reagan was president, and abandoned its working-class base.

Why the Mainstream Media Is Gung-Ho on War and Silencing Antiwar Voices Why is it that the mainstream media is so gung-ho about promoting war and military intervention, and so quick to silence antiwar voices? It's because we no longer have news in this country. We have infotainment. Infotainment lacks patriotism or humanism - it cares neither about the good of our nation or its people. It's instead exclusively about getting the most eyeballs, and bringing in the most dollars.

Conservatives Lie About Net Neutrality for Big Bucks The whole idea behind net neutrality is a free and open internet. It's the notion that we should all have equal access to the internet, and shouldn't be forced to pay more for certain types of content. It's the idea that internet giants like Comcast and AT&T shouldn't be able to charge us more if want to watch a movie on Netflix or a viral video on YouTube.

Is George W. Bush Responsible for the Death of Tomas Young? Tomas Young was right. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are guilty of murder, including his. They knowingly sent thousands of young Americans to die in a fight that was a based on a lie, a lie they cooked up to fuel their own political ambitions and to save the finances of Halliburton.

Time to Say Goodbye to Judicial Overreach Subsidies are a major aspect of Obamacare, and if the conservative justices on the Supreme Court were to rule against them in this case, millions of US citizens will lose the health-care coverage they got under Obamacare. The frivolous nature of this challenge to Obamacare is pretty clear, and you would think that the Supreme Court would recognize that, and would have refused to hear the case.

The Fatal Flaw With Democracy What we did with prisons, with voting machines, and with the surveillance state are all things that we've now done with our election system: we've privatized, outsourced, and corporatized it, with similarly disastrous results. The Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves.

What Has Greed Cost the United States? There should be no place for raw, naked greed in in the US. It should be tightly regulated and controlled -- it should be seen as the mental illness and social illness that it is. Greed is not what our country was founded on, it certainly isn't what it was built on, and it's not what's going to make the US great again.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror Ultimately, war only fuels more terrorism abroad and erodes freedom at home. So let's stop this "War on Terror" business once-and-for-all and start fighting terrorism with law enforcement like sensible people. We're the land of the free and the home of the brave. Let's start acting like it.

The Lost Generation Before lawmakers in Washington got hooked on Reaganomics and libertarian economics, our country never had a student loan debt crisis. To compound their problem, while millenials are struggling to pay off their student loan debt, they're also struggling to find employment, another consequence of libertarian economics.

The Real Rick Scott Debate Scandal Because of decisions made during the Reagan and Clinton administrations, our media is now an infotainment mess. This makes us all vulnerable to hustler politicians who've figured out that media that cares about ratings over news will always go with the bright, shiny things - like an argument over an electric fan on-stage -- instead of real issues that affect all of our lives.

Is This "American Exceptionalism"? The US is lagging behind in education and health care, we are leading the world in one thing: violence. According to a study by two New York City doctors, the United States has a staggering 88 guns for every 100 people, and has 10 gun-violence related deaths per every 100,000 people.

It's Time for the US Middle Class to Make a Comeback We need to get the middle class back on track. That starts by introducing trade policies that protect American jobs, tax policies that even the playing field, adopting policies that make life-saving health care more affordable and education policies that make a college education a reality instead of a pipe dream for millions of Americans.

Time for the US to Dump the Word "Homeland" While Germans still won't say it, the word "homeland" is everywhere in the United States. Bush and Cheney rolled it out in a big way after 9/11, and our media managed to completely ignore the dark history of the word. Let's rename the Department of "Homeland" Security, and remove from the United States' self-description this dark, strange and creepy term.

How the Defense Industry Bankrolls Pro-War Pundits Townsend has positions with two investment firms that deal with defense contractor money, and also serves as an advisor for the defense contractor Decision Sciences. Again, is it really a surprise that, given her connections and work history, Ms. Townsend is on CNN saying that the US needs to use more military might against ISIS?

Why We Need to Prosecute Our Torturers Dick Cheney is a war criminal and a liar, and should be rotting in a prison cell in The Hague, not giving motivational speeches to Republican lawmakers who're trying to look tough during an election year. The fact that he isn't in jail, though, and the fact that he is making motivational speeches shows how badly we've never come to terms with either the Bush administration or its crimes.

Economic Terrorism by Paid Goons It's now harder than ever before to join a union, thanks to the decades-long War on Labor that conservatives have been waging ever since Ronald Reagan came to Washington. And they've been waging that war with help from "right to work laws," which should properly and accurately be called "right to work for less" laws, and from the multibillion dollar-a-year union-busting industry.

The GOP War on Workers Has Killed Again The US is the richest country on the planet, and there's absolutely no reason that working people should be living in poverty. The working class has been and always will be the backbone of the American economy, and conservatives in Washington need to accept that fact. It's time to end the 34-year-old war on working people in the US, and give all Americans an equal shot at success.

You Don't Know What "Libertarian" Means Libertarians want to abolish Social Security, screw over working-class Americans, and take all the money that would go towards Social Security and invest it in Wall Street, so that their wallets can get even bigger. There's over $2.5 trillion sitting in the Social Security Trust Fund right now. They don't want to have any responsibility for society. Screw society!

A Rising Tide Only Lifts All Boats When Everyone Has a Boat Poverty is not a disease, it's not a "culture," and it's not something you can solve just by telling poor people to work harder. Poverty, at its core, is really just a lack of resources. Poor people aren't poor because they're lazy and don't know how to work; poor people are poor because they don't have the resources (aka money) to afford things like housing, food, and education that are essential to living a good life.

A Carbon Tax Is Absolutely Essential We need to slow down climate change and global warming, to protect our planet's ability to support human life. A report put out by the Citizens Climate Lobby shows that a $10 carbon tax would cut greenhouse gas emissions by around 28 percent. if we want to save our planet and the human race from the greatest threat we've ever faced, a carbon tax is absolutely essential. It's that simple.

The Ferguson Effect on Our Great-Grandchildren We must confront America's racism and poverty epidemics head-on and start building a larger and more inclusive middle class, so that communities like Ferguson can leave the stress of poverty behind. At the same time, we need to be creating a safer world, free of major stressors like wars, violence, and militarized police occupations. Basically, we need to be working towards a more nurturing society.

Advice for "Meet the Press" Since the show underestimates its audience, it brings on guests who really can't contribute much to serious debates. Similarly, the show rarely brings on experts on individual issues. Instead, it relies on political pundits, strategists, and analysts who are just reciting either bumper stickers or conventional wisdom.

Is Google the New Sheriff in Town? Our government doesn't do a great job of respecting the privacy of Americans. But the difference between a private corporation like Google and a government agency like the Post Office is that the Post Office is ultimately answerable to "We the People." We need to have a serious debate about this before the power of tech giants to act like law enforcement gets way out of control.

Doomsday Trigger for Megadrought? It's possible that all of the American southwest could soon be seeing the devastating drought conditions that Californians are facing. That's because the largest surge of heat ever recorded moving west to east in the Pacific Ocean, often referred to as a Kelvin Wave, which was supposed to start an El Niño and bring tropical-like rains to the West Coast and southwest, just dissipated.

The Rise of the Bankster Landlord The financial products Wall Street is creating with its new rental empire are basically a re-hashed version of the mortgage-backed securities that crashed our economy five years ago. There's a new bubble in the works, and if we're not careful, we could see another financial crisis sooner than you might think.

Rich rats hijacked our democracy As the wealthy elite and corporations are profiting off of their investments in Washington, the rest of us are living in a very different America than we had just a generation ago.

Why Do Banksters Get Help but Not Homeowners? Under the agreement, Citigroup will most likely get a $500 million tax write-off. And in pre-market trading on Monday, Citigroup stocks rose by nearly 4 percent, despite the $7 billion agreement. This is nothing more than a slap on the wrist for Citigroup; basically a cost of doing business.

The Crash of 2016 Gets Closer Every Day Until the corporate elite and our billionaire class are under control, and our working class once again can enter the middle class, we stand at the precipice of a great crash. Without vigorous governmental action to radically reduce student and working family debt, increase wages, and suppress speculation, that crash comes closer to us every day.

After that, global warming will lock in with devastating consequences for every single living thing on this planet. Serious scientific bodies are even debating whether or not industrial civilization can survive such a drastic temperature increase.

Healthcare: Let's Have People over Profits Once And For All There are some things in this world that shouldn't be turned into profit-making machines, and healthcare is definitely one of them. There was a time in America when in almost every state health insurance companies and hospitals were required to be non-profits. Americans could actually get the healthcare and treatment they needed at affordable prices. But then Ronald Reagan came to Washington, and everything changed.

Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Ever since President Obama was first elected president back in 2007, the "vast right-wing conspiracy" machine that Hillary Clinton first pointed out way back in 1998, has been churning out conspiracy after conspiracy, no matter how bizarre or outlandish they may be, all intended to take down President Obama.

Time to Rethink American Exceptionalism? Saying that America is "exceptional" because we actually follow international law and advocate peace is to say that all countries can fit that definition and it sets a good example for the rest of the world. This doesn't make us weaker; it makes us stronger because it reaffirms the same values that make America so special to begin with.

If the Law Is Bullshit, You Must Acquit But however much they try, the authorities will never actually be able to stop people from using their jury nullification powers.

The GOP Death Panel According to a new study out of Harvard University, as many as 17,000 people will die in America just this year as a direct result of the GOP's refusal to expand Medicaid. These Republicans should rot in hell -- and probably will. By saying "no" to expanded Medicaid, they've said "no" to the right to life of the people who put them in office.

Instead of Exploiting the Newest Generation of Americans, Let's Invest in Them Let's wipe the student loan debt off the books, and end future student loan debt by investing in our intellectual infrastructure like we did in the middle years of the 20th century, when the number of college graduates in America more than doubled and there was virtually no student debt. Instead of exploiting the newest generation of Americans, lets invest in them, by making all public universities and community colleges free.

To put it bluntly, the militias are the useful idiots of the one percent.

The Middle Class is not "Normal" Progressive taxation, when done correctly, pushes wages down to working people and reduces the incentives for the very rich to pillage their companies or rip off their workers.

American Democracy No Longer Works Money has taken over our political process. For the first time in American history, a majority of lawmakers in the House of Representatives are millionaires, and a startling number -- at both the federal and state level -- are being bankrolled by billionaires like the Koch brothers. This isn't what the founders had in mind when they founded our once-great nation.

Should GM Get the Death Penalty for 57 Cent Premeditated Murder? Many corporations are willing to do just about anything to protect their profits and bottom-line, even if that means "accepting" that a few people might die as a result, whether in a car crash, an oil-rig explosion, or a suicide after a home is foreclosed on. And even worse, they know that nothing will happen in the way of punishment.
