The Great Marginalization: Planning for Poverty?

By Carl Ginsburg

The word from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at last week's community meeting in the Bronx was disappointing, to say the least. After promising "good jobs" during a recent campaign, how could a man with so many billions, and now fresh from a re-election victory, oppose a $10-an-hour wage?

The Economic Crisis And What Must Be Done

By Richard C. Cook

The United States does not control its own destiny. Rather it is controlled by an international financial elite, of which the American branch works out of big New York banks like J.P. Morgan Chase, Wall Street investment firms such as Goldman Sachs, and the Federal Reserve System. They in turn control the White House, Congress, the military, the mass media, the intelligence agencies, both political parties, the universities, etc.

What Is Totalitarianism?

By Michael Kleen

If the United States came under the control of a totalitarian regime, would we recognize it? This question is of utmost importance today, when many of us harbor fears that some time in the near future ideas such as freedom, liberty, and privacy will be alien to our society.

Americans Toss Out 40 Percent of All Food

While some have plenty of food to spare, a recent report by the Department of Agriculture finds the number of U.S. homes lacking "food security," meaning their eating habits were disrupted for lack of money, rose from 4.7 million in 2007 to 6.7 million last year.

Bloomberg spent more than $100 million for reelection

Reuters

11/27/09

Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s narrower-than-expected reelection campaign cost the billionaire some $102 million, or about $183 per vote, The New York Times reported on Friday evening, making him the top-spending self-financed politician in U.S. history. Data on the mayoral election released on Friday found Bloomberg’s run for a third term in office, which required special legislation overturning a city law that held the mayor to a maximum of two terms, was the most expensive campaign in municipal history, the Times said...

Three Trillion Dollars: The Hidden Cost of War

Video

In 2003 Donald Rumsfeld estimated a war with Iraq would cost $60 billion. Five years later, the cost of Iraq war operations is over 10 times that figure. So what's behind the ballooning dollar signs?

In Afghanistan and At Home, We're Being Driven Off a Cliff

By Ron Smith

President Obama made the war in Afghanistan his war. The anti-war people are silent because he's their man. Leading Democrats in the House are proposing a "surtax" on income to be used for paying the mounting costs of battling insurgents on the other side of the world. And we're reduced to shouting "C'mon man" as we are driven over that cliff.

Bailed-Out AIG Forcing Poor to Choose Between Running Water and Food

Yasha Levine, AlterNet: "What are we getting in return for the bailout? So far, predatory credit card rates, exorbitant bank fees and obscene Wall Street bonuses. But we're being robbed in other, sneakier ways, too. It seems that taxpayers in the poorest, most vulnerable parts of the county are getting plundered by the same institutions they bailed out. One example is AIG's underhanded fleecing of residents of rural Kentucky."

Soaring Unemployment and Double-dip Recession?

Blame N.W.O. Larry

By Mike Whitney

Summers assignment is to bring the broader economy to its knees; to crush big labor by keeping unemployment high, to force state and local and governments to privatize more public assets and services, and to generate as much human misery as possible.

A Surge in Demands on the Government for Jobs

By Ann Robertson and Bill Leumer

The banks have been lobbying intensely for their own interests, and their efforts have been met with stunning success. We working people need to mount a campaign to pressure the government to respond our needs.

Obama's Fifth Category: The "Untriable"

By William Fisher

The assertion that there are 75 detainees who are too dangerous to release, but can't be prosecuted, and therefore must be held indefinitely, defies common sense.
