The voters came through! Renewing my faith in American politics. They stood for the importance of one voice, one vote counting.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, I can’t comprehend how there are still climate change deniers out there. Yet there are. These last few days, we’ve all seen pictures of New Jersey and New York LITERALLY under water. And the extreme droughts in the Midwest, the floods in Vermont and the fires in Colorado and Texas this year only validate what nearly every leading scientist has confirmed: Climate change is REAL and causes extreme weather conditions.Read more »

I felt like I was in suspended animation as I read the Supreme Court decision which, essentially enables a corporate coup d’état of America’s Democracy.
Our country’s Founding Fathers never intended for monarchs or the business establishment to rule our nation. No, the Founders of our country began the Constitution with the words, "We the People of the United States…"
That sentiment was again expressed when President Lincoln in his famous Gettysburg Address said it simply but powerfully, that our government was of the people, by the people and for the people.Read more »
Ted Kennedy was America's Senator for so long and he inspired so many millions of us with his wisdom and compassion. He is gone but he leaves us with his vision of America to guide us and his clear voice that will reverberate forever. He was always a fighter for justice, working to help those left behind. He will be terribly missed.

Nearly one in three commercial honeybee colonies in the United States died or disappeared last winter, an unsustainable decline that threatens the nation's food supply.
Multiple factors - pesticides, fungicides, parasites, viruses and malnutrition - are believed to cause the losses, which were officially announced today by a consortium of academic researchers, beekeepers and Department of Agriculture scientists.Read more »

At this point the economic case for austerity — for slashing government spending even in the face of a weak economy — has collapsed. Claims that spending cuts would actually boost employment by promoting confidence have fallen apart. Claims that there is some kind of red line of debt that countries dare not cross have turned out to rest on fuzzy and to some extent just plain erroneous math. Predictions of fiscal crisis keep not coming true; predictions of disaster from harsh austerity policies have proved all too accurate.Read more »

The Fed's policy of keeping interest rates near zero is another form of trickle-down economics.
For evidence, look no further than Apple's decision to borrow a whopping $17 billion and turn it over to its investors in the form of dividends and stock buy-backs.
Apple is already sitting on $145 billion. But with interest rates so low, it's cheaper to borrow. This also lets Apple avoid U.S. taxes on its cash horde socked away overseas where taxes are lower.
Other big companies are doing much the same on a smaller scale.Read more »
