TPP Toxicity Grows, We Can Stop It
(2 comments) The White House is calling Janaury “TPA (Trade Promotion Authority) Month” and has made it their task to pass Fast Track. President Obama needs Fast Track to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). When Congress returned this month, a bill was quickly introduced after delays of more than a year. The lies begin with title of the bill: “The Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014.” Bi-partisan?

The Obama Apology That Is Needed
(6 comments) I apologize for the results of my efforts in reforming US healthcare. It is now evident from the roll-out and the technical problems that have been exposed that we have created a complex system in which these types of problems will exist, not just at the beginning in the setting up of a website to sell health insurance, but as the law takes full effect.

Obama should seek legal prosecution, not illegal war
(1 comments) An attack by the United States on Syria would almost certainly result in civilian casualties with great potential of a wider war and unpredictable consequences. Aerial bombardment is a diffuse tool not targeted on stopping the alleged use of chemical weapons, but a blunt act of war that will cause widespread harm.

The Seeds of Rebellion Are Taking Root, and Protests Against Injustices Are Blooming Across the Country
(44 comments) As these movements grow, they become a power unto themselves that can reshape nations.

Fiscal Cliff Over, Now the Attack on the People Begins
(2 comments) Budget debates are how government sets its priorities and the fiscal cliff package shows where government's priorities are: low taxes on the wealthy and corporations, giveaways to business and take-aways from the American people. People can expect much worse in the months to come unless they get organized and mobilize against austerity in a big way.

Politics as Usual Doesn't Work: Obama, Boehner and Pelosi Plan More Theft Under the Guise of the Fiscal Cliff
(1 comments) Americans need to mobilize against the bi-partisan theft occurring in Washington, DC under cover of the fiscal cliff. If you want to protect Social Security, health care and other programs; tax the rich and cut the military, then the people must rise-up and demand it against both parties.

The People Must Lead the Way to Save the Planet
(2 comments) For decades the U.S. has been the leader in producing more carbon emissions per capita than any other country. But it denies historical responsibility and refuses to provide assistance to poor countries struggling with the impact of climate change or take the necessary steps to protect the people and planet, instead it seeks to blame China.

Cracks in the Pillars of Power
(4 comments) We're beginning to see cracks in the power structure -- Wall Street banksters are criticizing each other and acknowledging their misbehavior has made them untrustworthy to most of the public. Occupy pressure has been one reason why. We need to keep the pressure on and break these cracks open further by a combination of protest and building a new economy.

Real Health Care Advocates Should Support Repeal of the Insurance Mandate
(5 comments) Real health care reform advocates should oppose the Obama-law insurance mandate. It is unconstitutional and bad policy to force Americans to buy a corporate product, especially flawed health insurance. If the president and Congress dropped to words from the Medicare law "over 65" we would have had health care for all and controlled costs.

The Bradley Manning Prosecution is Incurably Infected by Government Misconduct, Dismissal is the Only Option
(3 comments) The government's handling of Bradley Manning's prosecution from pre-trial confinement, to hiding relevant discovery and including the top two military officials declaring him guilty has been infected by abuse. Dismissal of the charges is the only just result as a fair trial is impossible.

Getting Crazier about Bradley Manning
(3 comments) On March 20, Americans, in a vet-led assembly, gathered to support PFC Bradley Manning who is accused of leaking documents to WikiLeaks and who has been held in solitary confinement at the Quantico Marine Base for seven months. We worked successfully with the Prince William County Police in Virginia for a safe and peaceful event, but one aspect of the event was in dispute -- a veteran-led flower laying ceremony.

It is time to look at newly reported facts and if you originally supported this attack, time to reconsider your support for this war. It is more than what has been sold the American public.

One Year Anniversary: The Incredible Shrinking Obama Health Care Law
(4 comments) The one year anniversary of the Obama health law is March 23rd. While the law is not fully implemented, the indications from its first year are that it is falling far short of its goals and may not result in any increase in health insurance coverage, control of the costs or improvement in health in the U.S. hHealth insurance is becoming less adequate while getting more expensive -- unaffordable insurance will be the norm.
