(3/15/2018) - Rather than a health care system, our country's leaders have kept us shackled to a "corporate care" system, allowing insurance giants, drug company gougers, hospital chains, and other profiteers to ration our care based on whether a family can pay whatever outrageous price the corporations demands to maintain their exorbitant profits.
Hard times (still) in the fields (3/13/2018) - Every decade or so, America's mass media are surprised to discover that migrant farmworkers are still being miserably paid and despicably treated by the industry that profits from their labor.

Exposing our “populist” president as a naked plutocrat (2/13/2018) - Have you noticed that Donald Trump constantly prefaces his outlandish lies with such phrases as: “To be honest with you,” […]
Why the American majority despises Trump’s Washington (2/8/2018) - It’s odd that Washington Republicans are so loudly crowing about their passage of the Trump-McConnell-Ryan tax law. Odd because the […]
Trump serves the people – rich ones, that is (2/6/2018) - Donald Trump bragged in 2016 that, “I know words – I have the best words.” Well, occasionally he does use […]
