4,6 Millionen Menschen verdienen offenbar weniger als 7,50 Euro

SPD-Vize Andrea Nahles hat die Forderung ihrer Partei nach einem flächendeckenden Mindestlohn erneuert. Es gehe "nicht nur um Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, sondern auch die Qualität von Arbeit", sagte Nahles am Mittwoch (2. Juli) in Saarbrücken. Menschen, die arbeiten, müssten von ihrer Arbeit leben können. Ihren Angaben zufolge verdienen 4,6 Millionen Menschen in Deutschland weniger als 7,50 Euro in der Stunde. Daher seien flächendeckende Mindestlöhne zwingend erforderlich.

What's more appalling than $165 billion?


A Devil's Bargain

For Truthout, Carolyn Eisenberg writes: "With the president's signature now affixed to the bill, the clever deal is done. In exchange for another 'blank check' for a year of war, the Democrats have wrested from their Republican colleagues and the White House a host of domestic benefits ... Depending on their source of news, few Americans may be aware that Congress has now allocated another $162 billion to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan until next summer. In many media outlets, the only coverage pertained to the new educational benefits for soldiers. But even when the war funding received nominal attention, one would be hard-pressed to find in the mainstream media, or for that matter in the halls of Congress, any critical discussion of this political deal."

In The New York Times, Paul Krugman says, "The latest fake scandal fit the usual pattern as an awkwardly phrased remark, lifted out of context and willfully misinterpreted, exploded across the airwaves. What General Clark actually said was that Mr. McCain's war service, though heroic, didn't necessarily constitute a qualification for the presidency. It was a blunt but truthful remark, and not at all outrageous - especially given the fact that General Clark is himself a bona fide war hero."

Freedom is self-correcting

Christian Science Monitor
by Gary Watts


Is freedom a virtue or a vice? That question goes to the heart of some of the past century’s most violent conflicts. And it seems to be driving much of the criticism against the US today. But as it’s described in the quintessential work on freedom — the US Declaration of Independence — liberty is worthy of all the world’s admiration. Essentially, the signers declared: We believe that it is true beyond any doubt that every human enters the world with the right to live and with the freedom to pursue happiness. But since it’s a jungle out there, few people are actually able to enjoy these freedoms. The sole purpose of the people-elected government is to protect these basic rights. Detractors argue that this government-protected liberty licenses a lust for the kind of greed responsible for much of the world’s misery. To satisfy this lust, they say, Americans, or their proxies, kill, steal, and destroy other cultures — and then justify this behavior on the basis of ‘freedom’...

Tyranny of the Pinheads

Last Free Voice
by Steve Kubby


These days, Americans find their government increasingly concerned with limiting not just their freedom, but their very thoughts. A new cult of punishment and authoritarianism has turned society upside down with mindless pinheads on top and society’s brightest and most intellectually gifted, on the bottom, under virtual house arrest. Everywhere we look, we see swarms of retarded Pinheads micro-managing our lives to the lowest and most banal level, unfettered by ambiguous notions like due process or constitutional rights. Self-righteous Pinheads are constantly telling us how we should live, what we should think, and how important their parasitic, non-productive, bureaucratic activities are to our well-being. At every level of government, pompous Pinheads wallow at the public trough, ever more arrogant, resentful and ignorant of the people they pretend to serve...

Wm. Scott Harrop and R.K. Ramazani: "A Decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind"

For Truthout, Wm. Scott Harrop and R.K. Ramazani write: "Irony abounds in President George W. Bush's decision to speak at Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, on the last July 4th that he will occupy the Oval Office. For it was Jefferson who wrote in America's Declaration of Independence that 'a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires' the colonies to set forth the reasons for their rebellion before a 'candid world.' America's founders agreed - international legitimacy mattered. Two hundred and thirty-two years later, the conscious disregard for the 'opinions of mankind' has come to define the Bush presidency."
