America’s Forgotten War

Perhaps President Barack Obama should be thankful for the bad news—the oil spill, intractable unemployment and the rest—for it has definitely diverted attention from his biggest disaster: the Afghanistan war.

Where’s the Recovery?

As President Barack Obama, speaking last week in Buffalo, N.Y., was assuring the country that “our economy is growing again,” the usual large number of unemployed lined up at a community aid center in Los Angeles for food, clothing, advice and help finding a job.

America’s War Disease

The Afghanistan war, along with Iraq, has become a chronic illness that America has learned to ignore. News of the sick economy, natural and human-made disasters and momentary sensations flashes across cable news screens and the Internet, leaving hardly any space for the war.

Stay Away From Arizona

This is much more than an immigrant issue. Giving police the authority to stop a person on the “reasonable suspicion” he or she is an illegal immigrant clears the way for the arrest of anyone. Other states are likely to follow with their own police-state rules.

Surviving Without a Safety Net

People are just barely hanging on at employment offices, homeless shelters, food banks and community centers around the country. Help is needed right away and Barack Obama is struggling to give it.

A Calamity in the Making

A major reason for enacting health reform is the fate of elderly and disabled patients—especially the indigent—in nursing homes and assisted-care facilities. Nobody is affected more by the confluence of the health care stalemate and the recession than these patients.

Health Care Reform Can’t Wait—Outside Washington

Those telling President Obama to ditch health reform and concentrate on employment are wrong. What’s missing in such advice is a basic understanding of the grim intersection of a failing health system and rising joblessness, especially in blue-collar America.

Obama's arrival

Nice Speech. Now What?

Words won’t put people to work. Not even Obama’s eloquence—and he did reach that point on occasion—will be enough to inject courage into the gutless Democrats running from a mild heath care reform bill. Nor will words turn Republicans away from the unrelenting opposition they think will bring down the Democrats.
