Taxpocalypse Now

"In 2017, conservative legislators swept into power and eliminated personal income taxes..." Taxes: love 'em or hate 'em - but while you're paying income tax, many of the biggest corporations aren't paying any at all.

Elizabeth Warren: 'It Hurts... It Just Makes Me Madder Than Hell'

She has always been willing to push for what is right no matter how powerful the lobbyists on the other side are. And it was fitting that the event we did with her was in a church, because the politics she preaches are deeply moral - the politics not of right and left, but of right and wrong.

Thanksgiving, With An Edge

Thanksgiving, With An Edge

The thing that makes me angriest of all this week where we are all wanting to give thanks for the good things we have is that because of the greed and power of the corporations and politicians I mentioned above, so many people this Thanksgiving are living on the edge. The middle class in this country is no longer just being squeezed- it is being crushed. And the poor are indeed getting poorer while the rich are certainly getting richer. For no good reason, for no reason at all except for greed and corrupt power, way too many people have been bankrupted by out-of-control health care costs; way too many people got foreclosed on through no fault of their own when the housing market collapsed around them and sent their mortgages deep underwater; way too many people can only find dead-end low wage jobs; way too many parents have no means to make sure their kids get enough to eat. For all that I am thankful of the many blessings I have been given, and I truly am, my Thanksgiving holiday attitude comes with an edge this year- an edginess that knows that too many of my fellow citizens are living way too much on the edge themselves.
