Sucking Up to the Bankers: A Bipartisan Lovefest

This is a time to condemn the bankers, not to embrace them. They are the scoundrels who got us into the biggest economic mess since the Great Depression, lining their own pockets while destroying the life savings of those who trusted them.

The war between the United States and Iran is on. American taxpayer dollars are being used, with the permission of Congress, to fund activities that result in Iranians being killed and wounded, and Iranian property destroyed.

Bush’s Legacy of Torture

I still find it hard to believe that George W. Bush, to his eternal shame and our nation’s great discredit, made torture a matter of hair-splitting, legalistic debate at the highest levels of the United States government. But that’s precisely what he did.

A now-retired California judge who sentenced nine men to death, Donald A. McCartin, and actor-activist Mike Farrell make “an unlikely pair,” as they put it in this co-authored article.
