Helping Republicans Find Real Voter Fraud in America

Republican officials across the country are having a major problem with their widely ballyhooed claim that they must create new barriers to voting in order to ensure the "integrity" of the ballot. The problem is this: Their high-decibel effort is completely devoid of integrity.

Solutions Worth Debating

America has some big problems and it needs equally big solutions. In this current media-frenzied presidential race, the American people are looking to the two major party candidates -- Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama -- for solutions. However, they are coming back empty-handed as the candidates continue to push their party agendas, speaking in talking points rather than addressing real problems.

Exposed 'Kill Matrix' Gives Permanence to US 'War on Terror'

An in-depth Washington Post story reveals that the drone warfare and bottomless "kill list" that have become signature features of the Obama administration's foreign policy have evolved. At the center of these policies is a "next-generation" 'kill-list' rebranded as a 'disposition matrix' meant to serve as a guide for "future administrations through the counterterrorism processes that Obama has embraced."

Mitt Romney's Question-Mark Economy

nsurance companies won't pay the higher costs of insuring these people unless they have extra funds - which is why Obamacare requires that everyone, including healthy young people, buy insurance. Yet Romney doesn't say where the extra money to fund insurers would come from. From taxpayers? Businesses?

After the US presidential debates: The political issues facing the working class

It is now less than two weeks to Election Day in the United States. The campaigns of the two principal candidates have exposed the fraudulent, anti-democratic character of the entire electoral process. The American people are presented with a “choice” between two candidates who have, in the end, no significant political differences.

‘Robin Hood’ Tax Comes to Part of EU

The head of the European Commission supports the tax and encourages the other 17 member states to follow suit—the U.K. is most vehemently opposed—saying that it could help greatly with the debt crisis.

With the debates over and nary a word on climate change, many are asking what the significance of the silence means. This is the first time in decades that climate change has not been addressed during a presidential debate. But raising the issue during the debates in the past has not necessarily resulted in improved understanding of the science or significant action to pass emissions standards through Congress.

Walmart legal troubles mount as Black Friday walkout looms

walmartstore-JaredCBenedictWalmart workers aren’t happy, and they’re letting their employer know it. In the midst of worker strikes in several cities and the looming threat of a mass employee walkout on Black Friday (one of the busiest shopping days of the year), the world’s largest retailer has been hit with a class action lawsuit affecting temporary workers in the Chicago area.

Student loans get the same subpar servicing that subprime mortgages do

The parallels between the mortgage market and the student loan industry have been frequently noted. Both involve big borrowing and have a history of lax underwritingby lenders. But the two are also strikingly similar in another way: When it comes to both mortgages and student debt, the servicers, or companies that handle loan payments, sometimes add roadblocks and give struggling borrowers the runaround.

Lessons from the Early History of the Church of Latter Day Saints

In the beginning, as we know, was the Word of one Joseph Smith Jr., founder of the Mormon Church, finder of the so-called Golden Plates from which he was able to translate the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith today in Mormon theology is considered “the prophet, priest and king.” When Mitt Romney avows “My faith is the faith of my fathers—I will be true to them,” the father he invokes is Smith. This should be highly troubling.

Isn’t It Time To Take Down Ann Coulter?

When Rush Limbaugh made an ass of himself by “slut shaming” Sandra Fluke for weeks on end, the one last nerve of those within earshot of his blathering, blubbering mouth was snapped and the villagers took their pitchforks into the town square of modern media and demanded the monster be taken down. And he was. A notch or two. In fact, currently advertisers see sticking with the likes of Limbaugh as a death of sorts; or, as one put it, “those who do not adapt will be swallowed up.” (see Rats Leaving The Sinking Ship — Conservative Radio Still Shedding Advertisers)
