Taxpayers subsidize Wal-Mart

Taxpayers subsidize Wal-Mart

You are Paying Wal-Mart’s Workers as the Company Keeps Its Money By Piper Hoffman You are paying Wal-Mart employees’ wages. Yep, you. The notoriously stingy company cuts every corner to keep prices low, and one of those corners is the payroll. It pays employees peanuts (and then cheats them of their overtime peanuts, but that is another story). By “peanuts” I mean an average of $8.81 per hour. Many of these workers need welfare to survive. Thus you, the taxpayer, are paying ... Full Story

The 12 Days of a Capitalist Christmas

The 12 Days of a Capitalist Christmas

  By Paul Bucheit On the first day of Christmas my employer gave to me a penny for every $3 the richest 130,000 Americans make. It's been a national tradition since 1980. On the second day my doctor showed me TWO Americans needing mental health care, but only one of the two could afford treatment. The doctor informed me that the fifty states have cut $1.8 billion from their mental health budgets during the recession, and that the 2013 Republican budget proposes further cuts. "It's ...

Mitt Romney, casino capitalist

Mitt Romney, casino capitalist

          Mitt Romney and the New Gilded Age By Robert B. Reich The election of 2012 raises two perplexing questions. The first is how the GOP could put up someone for president who so brazenly epitomizes the excesses of casino capitalism that have nearly destroyed the economy and overwhelmed our democracy. The second is why the Democrats have failed to point this out. The White House has criticized Mitt Romney for his years at the helm ... Full Story

Republicans hide from Nuns on the Bus

Republicans hide from Nuns on the Bus

  ‘Nuns on the Bus’: Investigated but irrepressible U.S. Catholic bishops have launched a much-ballyhooed “Fortnight for Freedom” in protest against HHS’ birth control mandate and gay marriage, with masses at basilicas and sermons by such right-thinking prelates as Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia. The national event is being upstaged, however,  by “Nuns on the Bus,”  a 14-day, nine-city bus tour by four Catholic nuns that ... Full Story

Woman Gets Jail For Food-Stamp Fraud

Woman Gets Jail For Food-Stamp Fraud

  This is what "justice" is coming to in the United States. The laws seem to exist to protect the wealthy and punish the poor. This is a sad comment on our society. One can only suppose that the conservative attendees at the the Republican Presidential Debate who booed the gay soldier and cheered the hypothetical death of an uninsured man probably condone these inequalities and will push to see them grow if their candidate becomes president. While we do not condone fraud of any kind, ... Full Story

Answering Joe Dion’s Stomping Stamps

Answering Joe Dion’s Stomping Stamps

  EBT means Electronic-Balance-Transfer. While, yes, the EBT card may hold "food stamp" benefits for some, others get cash assistance and can use the card, like a debit card, most anywhere credit cards are accepted. What Mr. Dion saw "Mr. EBT" doing at McDonalds˙ was not purchasing fast food with food stamps but with a cash allowance. Yes the entire welfare system is out of control. But the reader needs to take a look around the whole warren not just the one little rabbit hole he ... Full Story
