The Racist, Criminally Insane Fascist Takeover Must Be Stopped In Bolivia

Improved civil rights. Improved educational system. Improved infrastructure. Increased wages. Job growth. Booming economy. Decreases in poverty, crime, homelessness, serious illness, health care costs and preventable deaths. A level of inclusiveness that never existed under U.S. approved corporate puppets. Bolivia had actually achieved democracy in recent years. They have gone in the opposite direction that […]

The Lobby-USA, Parts 1-4

This is an incredibly important film that everyone, especially those who live in the U.S. and who believe that they live in a democracy or that they live in a country that supports human rights or that they live in a country that allows freedom, should see. Freedom isn’t having twenty brands of (mostly) toxic […]

Framed In America

The people who are most vulnerable in our society are the most at risk from the predations of the greedy, manipulative executives running the show here in the United States. This includes children, the disabled, the elderly, those in poverty, non-white and yes – our prisoners. This is especially depicable when it is political prisoners […]

Battle Of The Airwaves Part 1

This is about the insidious plague of censorship, but instead of doing an in-depth study of the phenomenon (as a responsible journalist would do), I decided to relay personal experiences that I can’t explain in any way other than creepy nosiness by industry or by government agencies as directed by their corporate overlords. Almost every […]

And Justice For All (Who Can Afford It)

Connie Hawkins passed away yesterday. I considered writing a little something about him. I was a big fan of “The Hawk” growing up for two reasons. He was the most spectacular basketball player I’d ever seen up to that point in my young life and word on the street in New York was that he’d […]

Follow The Money

This is a hastily slapped together rant so I apologize for any incoherent, convoluted ramblings or redundancies. I don’t have nearly enough time lately to write and when I do it’s usually due to reading something and suddenly not being able to keep my mouth, uh fingers shut. 🙂 Thank you.   I was reading […]

Can Mumia Abu-Jamal Receive Justice In A Judicial System Rife With Corruption?

Mumia Abu-Jamal went to court yesterday (Monday) for a hearing on his Post Conviction Relief Act petition in Pennsylvania state court. The hearing was to decide whether to overturn appeals that have been denied by the corrupt Pennsylvania Supreme Court between 1995 and 2008. It is common knowledge there is ample evidence showing Philadelphia police and […]

ACCESS DENIED: No Dakota Access Pipeline Under Lake Oahe

It may only be a temporary victory, but it is a victory. The Army Corps of Engineers has denied Dakota Access an easement to extend their crude oil pipeline under Lake Oahe in North Dakota. It doesn’t mean that pipeline construction has ended, only that it will not be built at that location. Construction will eventually […]
