Let's not forget the numerous Republican attacks on the Health Care Reform Act (aka Obamacare), which currently provides health insurance to many Americans once unable to afford it. In perhaps the most egregious attack to date, Republicans recently won a lawsuit that declared portions of this act unconstitutional.
In spite of all the scepticism regarding the long delayed UK Iraq Inquiry in to the illegal invasion of Iraq, with predictions (including by myself) that it would be a "whitewash" of the enormity of the lies which led to the near destruction of Iraq, to the presence of ISIS and to probably over a million deaths
There are approximately 20-30 million illegal Mexican immigrants in America. They cost the American economy $500 billion each year. They kill 5,000 people each year through crime and driving accidents. They are bankrupting hospitals and draining other government services
Americans have lost the Bill of Rights, the amendments to the Constitution that protect their liberty. Anyone, other than the One Percent and their political and legal servants, can be picked up without charges and detained indefinitely as during the Dark Ages, when government was unaccountable and no one had any rights
In 2008, Presidential candidate Obama inspired hope ("yes, we can") for political change but it turned out to be a fallacy of perception and expectation. The world is more dangerous place in 2016 than when a colored President Obama making history moved into the White House
The two-day World Humanitarian Summit kicks off in Istanbul, Turkey today, to discuss and implement measures enshrined in five core responsibilities addressing the need to achieve sustainable development across the globe and to favor investment in humanity over hatred and conflict.
The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan is the oldest women's organization in Afghanistan that fights for freedom, democracy, social justice, and secularism. RAWA's founder was Meena who formed this group in 1977, with the help of some other female university students in Kabul. Meena was assassinated in Quetta, Pakistan in 1987.
US politicians invited illegal immigrants with open arms and free money sources that any normal human being, Mexican or American, could only dream about: Free food, free medical care, free school, etc. As an American citizen, I find this beyond contemptable. Identifying as a Mexican citizen, my hand is high in the air shouting, "Viva Vicente Fox!!"
The state of Texas has been a particular cancer on the people of the United States, not just because of its number of Electoral College votes, but also because of the inordinate number of demagogues it has unleashed on the national landscape, such as Tom Delay, George W. Bush, Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, and Greg Abbott. In fact, if there is anybody...
Where is the popular vote totally disregarded, either in referendums, plebiscites or expressions of opinion in a tele-voting exercise? Why, in Europe of course, where not only can a song with clear political overtones win a competition whose rules expressly prohibit this but also, one which allows Australia to compete. Eurovision joins Nobel...
With the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the immediate absorption of most of its East European countries into Nato to bolster the West's position against Russia, this 'Wall of Containment' may ultimately backfire. Placing the Aegis anti-missile shield in former East Bloc countries is being interpreted by Russia as a direct threat
Just about one half of the year 2016 is in the world's history books. The 16th year of the 21st Century, a century that was supposed to usher in a new era of democracy, opportunity, "green thinking", and income for all, has thus far been a bust for much of the citizens of the world
In which country can a gang which includes criminals, defendants in criminal cases and incompetents remove a democratically elected President who has not committed a crime? In which country does the new Government justify why it has no women by claiming "There aren't any" in a country with over 100 million of them? Guess...
