    Some cities (and maybe states) are dealing with homelessness by outlawing it. So not only are you in dire straits, now you’re in dire straits and a criminal. Another big driver of homelessness is medical debt. As long as our entire healthcare system depends on private, profit-motivated insurance, hospitals, and drugs, with an emphasis on [...]

    Here is a link to a  song about what’s going on in the USA today, particularly the way Wall Street and corporations are making out like bandits at the expense of everyone else.

    Great-sounding, rousing,  speeches last night, but the real message of the Democrats is that they are going to let criticism from the GOP dictate their party platform. In response to criticism from a right-wing newspaper columnist for leaving out any mention of Israel or God, Obama demanded the party change its platform to include such [...]

    Well done. You were right to stand up for yourself. It takes a lot of courage to do that. I wish you the best in your life, and I suspect you will do well, and go far, since you are clearly not afraid to do what is needed to win through.

    When a store puts up a decorated tree and calls it a “Holiday Tree,” and tells its employees to say “Happy Holidays,” they are not committing war on Christmas.  When a store puts up a decorated tree and calls it a “Christmas Tree,” and tells their employees to say “Merry Christmas,” they are not “putting [...]

    The congress of the US is seriously considering two bills – one from the house (SOPA), one from the senate (PIPA) – that would cripple the Internet as we know it today.  Rather than repeat the work of others in explaining why these bills are appallingly bad for the U.S. and the world, I refer [...]

    Interesting post. I agree that there is censorship at HP, but I’m not sure it is systemic, or decreed, and I’m equally not sure it has any sort of right-wing bias. Ususally if one of my comments is censored, it is by using the sneaky tactic mentioned by hotdog above: holding it back long enough [...]
