Follow the Money — Down the Drain

Follow the Money — Down the Drain

Viewpoint By Jon Coupal What if you were told there is a corrupt dictatorship on the other side of the world where government officials are using US foreign aid to build palatial mansions for themselves, diverting money intended to feed poor children and spending billions with no oversight or accountability?

Obama’s Parade

Obama’s Parade

Viewpoint By Steve Bowers Your Prez intends to send a group of self-outed homosexuals to represent America in the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Russia.

Obama, we’re just not that into you

Obama, we’re just not that into you

Viewpoint By Michael Greer   When you first arrived at the party, we were fascinated. You were mysterious and attractive, especially to women who tend to be attracted to bad boys. You smiled and told us to trust you.  You said you’d never lie to us. You came with some pretty rough friends, but you […]

Thinking about equality

Thinking about equality

Guest Editorial by Jim Sullivan Equality is a centuries-old idea, medications with a record of use  ranging  from Socrates (and earlier)  through today.  In the course of that record  it has had many  meanings.  The modern version of equality continues to have multiple  meanings  for the reason that as a general term it is too imprecise […]
