Joe Biden Stop Telling People You're on Their Side and Start Showing Them You Are The key to winning is not by schmoozing McConnell and Manchin but by going into the countryside and rallying the majority of people fed up with corporate arrogance and abuse.

Where Does the Buck Stop in Texas? There is a weasel word that politicians use whenever something goes wrong on their watch: "unacceptable." We just heard it slither out of the mouth of Texas governor Greg Abbott in response to the state's failure to prepare for a killer winter storm. "What happened this week to our fellow Texans is unacceptable," he fumed.

This Holiday Season, Choose A New Food Future America certainly has an abundance of food, even though many Americans do not. We face a momentous choice of whether to pursue a food future rooted in the ethic of sustainable agri-culture or one based on the exploitative ethic of agri-industry.

The First Thanksgiving? Wherever it began, and whatever the purists claim is "official," Thanksgiving today is as multicultural as America. So let's enjoy even if we're in smaller groups or observing virtually this year.

Florida Republicans Are Nakedly Suppressing Votes How nasty is the Republican Party's massive campaign to thwart democracy? Ask the good people of Florida. This was one of only three states that permanently took away the voting rights of people with felonies who'd completed their punishment.

Either way, he's casting himself as a cosmic warrior with a heroic vision to turn the spectacular majesty of space into, as he put it, "the world's new war-fighting domain." How fantastic is that?
