Tom Hall: As much as politics, our national race problem continues to be driven by economics and by social beliefs and conventions. Similar factors drive our continuing national problems with gender issues.
Joe Mitchell: The thing I can never get my head around is how these people think they got any spoils? Most of them that harbor this belief are at the bottom of the economic ladder.
Stephen Fox: A recent poll just in the past few day put Biden, Bernie, and Beto on top, and that says a lot about Beto’s integrity to have risen to that level of esteem among Democrat voters.
Dusty Stewart: Colonialist powers such as the nondemocratic USA steal the wealth produced by the workers in colonized countries and kill any leaders who attempt to end capitalism and colonialism.
Wes King: The labels “socialist” “capitalist” or whatever other label are overused and dumbed down to simple sound bites. Sort of like saying there are only two colors, “red” and “blue”…nonsense!
Larry “Wingnut” Wendlandt: Let’s not forget about the MASSIVE amount of servitude and “OR ELSE” felony extortion… happening within capitalism’s giant ‘get-a-leg-up’ pyramid scheme.
Adam Eran: Honestly, this “we Democrats were the good guys, while the Republicans were bad, very bad” narrative doesn’t wash. It doesn’t pass the sniff test.
Adam Eran: The conventional narrative is that there’s some zero-sum game where environmentalists wins come at the expense of job losses, but that’s manifestly not true.
Tom Hall: As we all clamor to watch the salacious arguments about what Kavanaugh may have done as a drunken teen, let us not loose sight of the fact that in his writings, he has been CLEAR, he thinks that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be reversed.
John A El-Amin: Americans have been rendered apathetic by the onslaught of corporate America’s insistence that we eat and buy—24/7.
Gary Corseri: Left-wingers and right-wingers bowing their heads, dutifully touching the casket (!), and all kinds of obeisance…to what?
Ron Fox: What the Pope needs to do is to come to America (or maybe to Ireland first, or Brazil – wherever, just start SOMEWHERE), come to some major city such as Chicago, set up shop and start calling in bishops, telling them to bring all their records with them.
Wes King: In the wake of 9/11 and the Iraq War, any meaningful intellectual debate of consequence about the vast (and deadly) reach of US military and defense industry activity worldwide has been effectively muted.
