Facebook allows Blood Libel hate against Jews, despite Community Standards for everyone else

This Facebook page (open link) and website was still online today, despite protests to the social site’s Community Standards officials. Jewish-Born Mark Zuckerberg owns Facebook. Indeed, he is the richest Jewish-born person in the world. Note that I use the term “Jewish-born.” You might think he would support less hatred of Jews. According to Shurat HaDin (The Israel Law Center), a non-profit legal organization dedicated to the protection of Israel, […]

CNN hands soapbox to racist thug and violent attacker of Presidential candidate Donald Trump

“I was thinking that I could get up on stage and take his podium away from him and take his mike away from him and send a message to all people out in the country who wouldn’t consider themselves racist, who wouldn’t consider themselves approving of what type of violence Donald Trump is allowing in his rallies, and send them a message that we can be strong, that we can […]

Primary debates hide questions on Social Security! If we knew their actual plans, nearly all would lose

Republican candidates for President have avoided using the Primary debates to explain their plans for Social Security. Exceptions include Chris Christie, who saw his ratings collapse after publicly urging that the retirement age be hiked, and Donald Trump, who said he would not cut benefits. Ben Carson has not settled yet on a stance, except to remind us that life expectancy has increased. As a doctor, he must realize that […]

Heritage hates Obamacare – plans “Impoverishcare”

Healthcare.gov has my email address, because I once searched for plan information on the site, and now the artificial intelligence – or just perhaps an algorithm – has decided to pester me to sign up or pay a penalty. Having fooled the system (because I can’t get Obamacare since I passed my 65th birthday), I checked some prices to see the cost of  plans for my neighbors, assuming a family […]

British want to fight inequality – it’s worse here!

British Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbin is starting a campaign against inequality that should be emulated by all (five, ten?) American politicians not controlled by big business. “One proposal is pay ratios between top and bottom, so that the rewards don’t just accrue to those at the top,” he said. “Of the G7 nations only the US has greater income inequality than the UK, and pay inequality on this scale […]

Hillary flubs socialist/democrat question – here’s answer from former card-carrying member of SWP

“It is not a question of substituting one ruling clique for another, but of changing the very methods of administering the economy and guiding the culture of the country. Bureaucratic autocracy must give place to Soviet democracy. A restoration of the right of criticism, and a genuine freedom of elections, are necessary conditions for the further development of the country. This assumes a revival of freedom of Soviet parties, beginning […]

Rich look poorer, poor much richer – report distorted to make average Joe happy – despite Depression

It’s so very wonderful to learn this week that “median household income” in 2014 was $53,657, even if it was down from $57,843 in 1999. You can still buy a nice basket of goodies on $50 grand a year. If only it were true. Most jobs pay about $31k. Many families have just one parent or one spouse working. Something doesn’t add up. Welcome to the world of making statistics […]

Lies about minimum wage – it’s not even a lousy $7.25 an hour

One of the least discussed provisions of the minimum wage law in this country is how we treat workers under the age of 20 – those high school and college students deprecated on FOX News, for example, as overpaid burger flippers, toilet cleaners, gardeners, and other manual workers. The concept of raising their wages to $15 an hour drives most of the GOP and some Democrats up the wall. If […]
