Brent Budowsky: Now Brown resorts to the old standby: Obamahate. What will she think of next week? Perhaps a beefcake shot of Paul Ryan while he attacks Medicare and a woman’s right to choose.
If we know, then we must fight for your life as though it were our own—which it is—and render impassable with our bodies the corridor to the gas chamber. For, if they take you in the morning, they will be coming for us that night.
Tracy Emblem: America has always been the land of opportunity which is why Corporate America must begin to renew its investment and partnership in our nation’s job force and keep America’s promise to keep the American Dream within reach.
Randy Shaw: Those who grew up pre-Internet love the feel of a newspaper in their hands, and many cannot imagine reading a book on a computer screen. But what’s become known as the Millennial Generation, those who knew computers before they could read, do not have loyalty to the printed page.

Georgianne Nienaber: My New Year’s resolution is that I will abandon virtual networking for authentic, human contact. It’s time to venture into the heady world of writers and meet artists who excel at their craft.

$9,897,708,003,650.45 is the current national debt jackpot and we all lose! Our country’s real owners the Congress said to its pretend owners, the voters, then the one’s propping up the economy, the Chinese, Saudis and Japanese investors buying up our debt and the those controlling the purse strings, the bankers lending to our businesses to […]
