Linda Milazzo – It would be an affront to the world and all I believe in to allow so hideous a man to succeed. And though his repugnant misogyny is now losing him support, I still can’t gamble on his election.
Today, *we* cannot be silent as the “Jewish state” — armed to the teeth by the U.S. and its allies — wages yet another brutal war on the Palestinian people. Apartheid Israel does not speak for us, and we stand with Gaza as we stand with all of Palestine.
Linda Milazzo: Whether it be Gaza, the sky, or a peaceful sidewalk in Los Angeles, all we have is our life. Those who take the lives of others, take away the universe. No one has that right.
Linda Milazzo: Tobi Dragert, a passionate advocate for fair transparent elections, equality, ending war and much much more, succumbed to cancer after a long and valiant battle.
Linda Milazzo: In Gaza, because of the hard work and valor of intrepid journalists, we have the horrific photos of dead children and their grieving families that Dershowitz and his cohorts vindictively besmirch.
Linda Milazzo: Using Senator John McCain as his foil to demean Duckworth, Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh smeared Tammy Duckworth’s service and undermined her sacrifice.
Linda Milazzo: Discussions between Jews, particularly relative to Israel, have broken up friendships – even families. As long as haters like Pamela Geller have venues to preach, the gap will grow even wider.
Linda Milazzo: What’s truly needed in these debates are the images of a diverse blended America – not more monochromatic mirror images of the candidates themselves.
Linda Milazzo: On January 2nd, thanks to the hard work and determination of members of the Occupy Movement, the 123rd Rose Parade is permitting viewers to Just Imagine how spectacular our country could be if greed and war disappeared.
Linda Milazzo: Corporate media’s constant drumming of death panel lies resulted in Section 1233 (which allowed Medicare to provide advance planning doctor visits every five years) being eliminated from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that passed in 2010. This week CNN was back using the same death panel misnomer, spreading the death panel myth. Well I’m mad as hell. I’m not going to take it anymore from CNN, MSNBC, Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS and talk radio. We, the people, deserve better.
Linda Milazzo: Whatever the outcome of this strike, these nurses are standing up to their felon corporate employer and fighting valiantly for their rights and the rights of their patients. Their strike leaflet reads, “When we fight, we gain respect.”
Linda Milazzo: In today’s America, where corporate media caters to the right, Elizabeth Edwards was that rare progressive woman who could make her voice be heard. And now that voice is gone.
Linda Milazzo: It’s time to right this wrong. Holding office in America is not for the purpose of serving Israel. It’s for the purpose of serving America, the American people, and America’s honor in the world.
