The New Deal

There's going to be pain all around in whatever deal is struck. Most Americans are going to be directly impacted in one way or another by whatever bargain is made between President Obama and congressional Republicans.

What Muslim Vote?

Sumbul Ali-Karamali

Citizenship in this country and the promise to follow its laws is a contract under Islam; therefore, following the laws of the country we live in is a religious mandate for Muslims. So just watch us vote.

Vote for the B-

Robert Scheer | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics
Robert Scheer

To employ the vernacular used in my day job teaching college students, I give Obama a generous B- grade. Meanwhile, the rapacious capitalist-turned-candidate Romney earns a solid F and makes Obama look quite good in comparison.

Non-Kenyan White Men for Romney

Robert Scheer | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics
Robert Scheer

If Romney would just commit to granting all of us the same deal that he gets from his hedge fund and capital gains tax breaks and offshore accounts, I might be tempted to join the ranks of terminally shortsighted white males who seemed poised to vote him into office.

Inspired by Richard Schiff....

David Trumble

Richard Schiff's description of coronation as being defined by a death of sorts conjured up a lot of images in my head, and as we tilt ever closer to yet another decisive moment in history, it's valuable to ruminated on such things. In other words, it prompted me to draw this, hope you like.

And Our Next President Is...?

On November 6, voters will go to the polls and cast their ballot for our next President. Because of very powerful astrological events occurring at this time, I predict an even more dramatic and shocking election than the 2000 Bush-Gore presidential contest.

Romney's Cold War Ponzi Scheme

Obama, the naive community organizer, thinks the foreign policy debate is about national security, but Romney, the quintessential vulture capitalist, knows that it's always been about maximizing profit.

The Hangover Presidency

While it's funny to watch the guys in The Hangoverpiece together a disastrous night, America has far less to laugh about. Piece by piece, Obama has tried to restore a nation hooked on George W. Bush's inebriation to a nation that is sober.

I watched Tuesday night's presidential debate from La Fortuna, Costa Rica, near the active volcano Arenal. Speaking of good fortune, the absence of a volcanic eruption here was offset by plenty of fireworks during the town hall debate. My awards go to...

America needs a period of truth and reconciliation. How can we avoid future wars if we don't understand how consent was manufactured for a war against Iraq?

How to Reduce Our Big Fat Deficit? Romney's Austerity Diet vs. Obama's New Deal 2.0 Work Out

Lisa Kaas Boyle | Posted 12.06.2012 | Politics

When Americans vote this November we are choosing between two plans to get America back in shape: a safe and proven 'work out' plan or an extreme diet that could leave the 1 percent fat while the rest of us starve.

Sigh No More: Obama, Romney Leave No Room to Argue

Robert Scheer | Posted 12.05.2012 | Business

It is absurd to depict Wednesday night's rhetorical stew of superficial nitpicking by two candidates with a proven record of subservience to the Wall Street bandits responsible for wrecking our economy as a meaningful exercise in democratic governance.

The Obama and Romney Debates Do Matter

Republicans will claim victory for Romney. Democrats will claim victory for Obama. It will be tantamount to an NFL game with a tie score after one overtime period. It goes down in the books as a tie. The Romney versus Obama debate will be the same.

Why the Poor Pay Far More Than Romney

Earl Ofari Hutchinson | Posted 11.25.2012 | Politics
Earl Ofari Hutchinson

This is more than simply a case of armies of corporate shilling tax lobbyists that rig the tax system to insure that the rich duck and dodge their fair share. The poor have always been viewed as a ready, easy, and accessible piggy bank for state and federal governments to pay their always increasing bills.

52 Reasons to Vote for Obama: #38, Balance Against Congress

The last time the Republicans had both houses of Congress and the presidency we got an irresponsible Congress that gave us huge tax cuts for the rich that we couldn't afford and an unfunded war we shouldn't have fought, setting us up for an economic catastrophe we didn't need.

All conservatives seem to talk about is Reagan, so I just naturally assumed that taxes were really low during his presidency. Then I made the mistake of looking stuff up.

Can Romney Win With Just White Votes?

The drop-off does not take into account the blatant and sneaky voter suppression tactics that GOP governors and GOP state legislators have worked feverishly to put in place to further damp down the black and Hispanic vote.

Mendacity of Hope

The Republicans gained little momentum for their presidential ticket coming out of the GOP convention in Tampa last week. In fact, the most memorable moment of the convention was Clint Eastwood's chat with the "Invisible Man."
