Noam Chomsky Rains On Bernie's Parade At this time when so many people don't vote because they feel the system is corrupt and rigged against them, it is imprudent of you to rain on Sander's parade.

It's Time to Take Both Parties Down. We are discouraged because so many of our friends on the left believe that Donald Trump is all that's wrong with America. That if we could impeach him all would be well again. Huhh?

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Superman, and the American Way We Americans argue a lot about second amendment rights. How many of us pay any attention to Sixth Amendment rights? The Sixth Amendment is far more important to protecting our liberty, yet most Americans do not even know it exists.

There Was No Election There was no election. Despite the cacophony of the major-media propagandists, liberals and progressives did not take a walloping; and there was no mandate for the lunatic fringe that runs the Republican Party.

How About Israel? It boggles the imagination that America's 'most important ally' in the region has not put boots on the ground against ISIS. In a new ranking released by Business Insider, Israel has the most powerful military in the Middle East. It also ranked 1st in the region in military strength in the world by Global Firepower, which did not even include Israel's nuclear capability at the time of the ranking.

Trump Is Obama With Backbone When Obama passes the gauntlet to Trump, the stage will have been set to take things even further. With only weeks left in office he suggests that "fake news" should be stopped. What do you think? Do you think the alt-right (Fascists) will like Obama's idea? Do you think they will like to stop news stories they don't like? Do you think they will continue Obama's policy of jailing journalists and arresting and torturing whistle

Lewis Black: "Both Parties Are Bowls Of Sh*T" Americans wonder if we have any alternative to the two party system. "We are still the greatest country in the world," the "pundits" say. Anyway how do you fight the Supreme Court? If the Supreme Court says corporations are people and that money is speech, that's what it is. They could declare that a jockstrap is a hat, and their proclamation would make it true. And nothing short of hanging them can change anything.

Hillary Is Obama With Lipstick The Hillary Clinton candidacy represents a lose-lose situation for us. If she becomes president, she will be Obama with lipstick. (Isn't it time for us to face up to the fact that Obama has more in common with Reagan than with Roosevelt?). She will rule from the same ivory tower from which Obama peers down at us, and continue to cavort with billionaires and kings.

BILLIONAIRES SHOULD PAY NO TAXES AT ALL! When Obama said America was being "held hostage" by the Republicans, that he had no choice but to compromise, he lied. He could have been the transformational leader that we thought we elected. he wasn't.

91 Things Joe Biden Might Do To Earn Your Vote My problem with Joe Biden is that as much as I don't want to see Trump win, I find that I want Biden to lose. I know I am going to catch hell from my Democrat friends for saying this, but that's how I feel. To win my vote, Biden needs to earn my vote-to prove that his presidency would make a difference.

Euphemistically Being Hillary Nonhuman people (euphemisms for corporations) that front for a tiny number of successful (euphemism for the one percent) human people, who want to own everything (euphemistically called 'privatization'), have made Hillary Clinton fabulously rich. They have put over $125 million since 2001 into her own, personal bank account.

For some people, raising the minimum wage, or expanding Social Security, or Medicare-For-All, all of which Hillary opposes, are matters of life and death. Some people are offended by the very idea of their life being decided by a coin toss.

Should Churches Pay Taxes? According to former White House senior policy analyst, Jeff Schweitzer, American churches own $300-$500 billion in untaxed property. Yet churches receive all the benefits of army, police and fire protection, as well as city and state services like purified water, garbage collection, and road repairs, all paid for by tax-paying citizens, whether they are affiliated with a church or not.

Speeding Up Vaccine Development With "Challenge Trials" Challenge tests of vaccines to begin in England. Most of the young volunteers would come from people who really need the money: the unemployed; the underemployed, the poor. Will the rest of us, those who can live without a little extra money, feel comfortable jabbing the poorest people in the country with an untested vaccine, then forcing them to inhale coronavirus to see what happens?

The Demise of the Mad Hatter We have a minimum of 662 military installations (Ron Paul put the number at over 900) in 38 foreign countries. Our "friends" all over the world do not pay a plug nickel for our services -- we provide the protection completely free-of-charge. These military installations cost us in excess of 200 billion dollars a year. Why are we so terribly generous?

The Democratic Debate Wasn't The Democratic debate wasn't. In real debates the participants ask each other questions, who follow up by answering, then asking more questions. In last night's 'debate' the highly filtered, expected 'questions' came mostly from Anderson Cooper, the moderator. The participants failed to question each other.
