GOP budget, poverty for most

GOP budget, poverty for most

Once upon a time, the United States was a prosperous nation with a strong middle class. The middle class had achieved what President Theodore Roosevelt dreamed for the middle class; a living wage that allowed them to take care of their family, buy a house, save some for old age. These people were able to live the American Dream and they purchased the products made in factories in the U.S. They were able to support charities and community activities. Workers shared in the wealth created by their ... Full Story

While changing the way the United States does business would probably solve the terrorist problem, the government has instead used the ... Full Story

Occupy Our Fears of Iran

By Winslow Myers U.S. behavior long ago provided one causal context for our unease about the presumed nuclear aspirations of the Islamic Republic of Iran: the U.S. and Britain messed with Iran’s last authentically democratic election in 1953, fearing communist influence and the nationalization of oil. U.S. oil corporations, a minor partner before the CIA overthrew elected Mohammad Mossadegh and installed the dictatorial Shah, then became the largest profiting entity, even more than the ...

Troy Davis Should Not Be Put to Death

          By John W. Whitehead September 14, 2011 "Troy Davis has three major strikes against him. First, he is an African-American man. Second, he was charged with killing a white police officer.
