A Blast at War: the Pentagon does not protect the United States Those who love their country are creating green jobs that fully will employ the next ten generations.

Medical Insurance is a Cruel Industry. Here's how to end it. During the past 110 years, advocates of universal health coverage--Medicare for All--have been focused on elections, petitions, conferences.

Walling Trump Out Decades ago we thought President Johnson would destroy our entire generation. Then we thought Nixon was the scariest thug in the basement.

Why Liberals Vote for Fascists Many of us liberals are profoundly conservative. Like all people, we want a secure home, steady income, healthy kids, good meals. As liberals, we'd like everyone to enjoy these, but our own comfort tops the list. We care about poor people in distant lands, but vote for those who kill them.

Deep Green Jobs All green work expands the economy by reducing waste of resources, workers and wealth. Green jobs make life easier for everyone by reducing the costs of fuel, food, and housing. Green work repairs soil, water and air, making these cleaner and healthier. But deep green jobs build profound solutions that replenish resources. They change our lives.

Labor: the New Gold Standard Twenty years ago I started printing money. Ithaca HOURS weren't intended to replace dollars, but to replace lack of dollars. Today, while much of America tilts beyond chronic recession into early depression, it is time to begin an orderly national transition from dollars to HOURS.
