Take back our country from corrupt government and crony capitalism

Seven men together are twice as rich as 16,800,000 median Black households, or 42,000,000 citizens

They are all white. They are all men. They are all rich. But you never hear politicians, professors or protestors criticize these richest men in America, because wealth has its privileges and allows immense power. It’s not just being able to buy your children entrance into the best colleges, or owning a $100 million house that you visit for just one week in the summer, or traveling in private jets, […]

Overcharging for the border wall is a major crime caused by private greed and political corruption

What do a U.S. Navy Destroyer and a proposed fence across the nation’s southern border have in common? Both are ripoffs in their own fashion, designed to enrich private corporations and pay off politicians with campaign contributions or even old-fashioned bags of cash. The Zumwalt destroyer began as a great idea: build a modern, stealth destroyer with a super gun – the Vertical Gun for Advanced Ships (VGAS). Some 32 […]

How I fell off a 1963 American LaFrance pumper, and why 70% of fire companies fear closing

Unlike the Army drill sergeant, you can’t recruit the unwilling to become volunteers at your local fire station. And that is causing a huge national problem – too few volunteers to drive trucks, connect hoses, dash into buildings, douse flames and save lives. Some 70% of all the fire companies in the United States are volunteer. Instead of the $180 per hour your grumpy plumber charges, these firefighters risk their […]

Nickels, dimes and dreams – author urges that all workers be fairly valued for their time and effort

A Montana coal miner’s daughter recently found herself the honored guest of King Willem-Alexander at the Royal Palace in the Netherlands. It was a case of the guest being better-known than the host, despite title and wealth. Barbara Ehrenreich, Ph.D, who researched and wrote the best-selling Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America, enjoyed her triumph on Nov. 27, when she was awarded a 150,000 Euro ($169,500) prize […]

Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge costs $2.3 billion a mile; Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge price – $588 million!

Once called the Tappan Zee Bridge, the three-mile Mario Cuomo span over the Hudson River took 15 years of planning and construction, cost $7 billion with finance charges and interest, but lacks one essential element – public transit buses running at high speed. Meanwhile, in the land of poppies and pandas, the world’s longest connector, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, opened November 6. Public transit  buses began cutting commuter time from […]

Dr. Kermit Gosnell – America’s worst serial killer exposed in a movie never released for years to hide it from you

Five years and five months ago a West Philadelphia doctor was convicted of murder, and only avoided lethal injection through a plea deal. The press ignored the case – a hot potato – because it focused on a monster, who performed hundreds of illegal late-term abortions, covered up his crimes, and also killed many living babies who briefly survived his sloppy and unsanitary procedures. This Friday night, the movie describing […]

FISA documents reference the Steele/Trump/Russian Dossier – same one we described as a fake “spy” novel in April 2017

The White House just decided to release unredacted FISA documents this week that would reference the so-called Russian Dossier, submitted by Christopher Steele, and its impact on the independent counsel investigation into foreign meddling and collusion with the 2016 Donald Trump election campaign. What is the dossier? Is it real or a pack of lies? We published the unredacted version, along with complete text and photos in April, 2017. At […]

Congress votes to destroy Social Security, 233-184

Those April showers have drowned the media this year with reports of a petulant, prosthetic protuberant princess, also know as “What’s Her Name” or “Smarmy Scandals.” Meanwhile, back in Congress, 233 members – 54% of that angst body – voted to destroy the Social Security system by not allowing the use of its $2.9 trillion in reserves, forcing cuts of up to 24% in coming years. As a big boy […]
