Public Health Before Wall Street Wealth

Age of Reason

By Robert Scheer

The 13 Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee get one faintly rational Republican to join them in a meaningless stab at health care reform and it throws the media into a titillated frenzy about what it all means. It means very little.

Insurance Companies Make Case for Public Option

Age of Reason

by: Scott Galindez

The insurance industry is back in the game, fighting against the health care reform proposals emerging from Congress. They are playing their final card, threatening to raise everyone's premiums if the current bills prevail. They might actually be right about at least one committee's plan, but are dead wrong about the others. In fact, they are making a strong case for why the final version needs a strong public option.

Age of Reason

Carl Sagan, spaced out on pot

Age of Reason

David Pescovitz

A friend once told me that famed astronomer and noted head Carl Sagan wrote notes from his high self to his sober self to trust in his stoned revelations. I haven't confirmed that, but Sagan was definitely into the wacky tobaccy. In 1969, Sagan contributed a piece about his marijuana use for the book "Marihuana Reconsidered." Sagan wrote under the pseudonym of Mr. X, but he was later confirmed as the author.

Saving American Lives

Age of Reason

Keith Olbermann

Death is the issue! How can we not be unified against death? I want my government helping my father to fight death! I want my government to spend taxpayer money to help my father fight to live and I want my government to spend taxpayer money to help your father fight to live! I want it to spend my money first on fighting death. Not on war! Not on banks! Not on high speed rail! (NOT ON ISRAEL!)

Gore Vidal's United States of Fury

Age of Reason

At 84, the writer and activist may be confined to a wheelchair, but his rage – at his country, its leaders and citizens – burns as fiercely as ever.

By Johann Hari

In Russian, the phrase "gore vidal" means "he has seen grief". As Gore Vidal is wheeled towards me across an empty London hotel lobby, it seems for the first time like an apt translation.

The Balkanization of North America

Age of Reason

While the basis of Professor Igor Pararin’s reasons for the upcoming US collapse, and I dare say that of all of N.

The Danes Do It Better

Age of Reason

By M. G. PIETY

Throughout the three years I lived in Canada, and the eight years I lived in Denmark, I would periodically return to the U.S. to see family and friends. I would regale my American acquaintances with stories of what it was like to live in a land with little to no poverty, absurdly cheap to outright free higher education, a generous minimum wage and free government healthcare.

The View from the Heavens

Age of Reason

A look around the globe, with its devastating economic breakdown and seemingly interminable brutal wars, can easily bring an individual to the point of despair. There seems to be no way out of the hideous devolution of human civilization, and massive depopulation of the planet, in the very short term.

America Must Reject Obama's Sellout of the Nation

Age of Reason

by John Hoefle

Civilization lost another opportunity to reverse its disastrous course this week, when President Obama nominated Ben Bernanke for a second term as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. The move makes it clear that Obama is determined to continue the policy of bailing out the Anglo-Dutch Liberal monetary system, while bankrupting the United States.

Why Single-Payer is the ONLY Sensible Health Care Reform

Health care services are in a special category of “services”. Unlike almost all other services in our “free market” economy, most health care services (just like police and fire services) are necessary for all residents—often a matter of life and death.

The Life of Amos Kenan

By URI AVNERY

On the morrow of the Six-day War, Amos Kenan came to my editorial office. He was in a state of shock. As a reserve soldier, he had just witnessed the emptying of three villages in the Latrun area. Men and women, old people and children, had been driven out in the burning June sun on a foot march in the direction of Ramallah, dozens of kilometers away. It reminded him of sights from the Holocaust.

Kosovo and Bosnia

Pristina, the capital of an Anglo created Islamic Jihadist state, which of course it is never sold as, is a true show case for what any Christian nation has to face if and when its majority falls from power.

Texas' alternative to fascism: independence

The Remedy: Put the System in Bankruptcy

Age of Reason

We could, at any moment, in terms of days or weeks, we could have a general breakdown crisis, by which I mean a situation, as in the state of California, within the United States, for example, of large sections of the world going into a place where government breaks down; breaks down largely for financial reasons. In other words, the government just has no money, and has no money to maintain conventional essential institutions within that state or a number of states.

Christianity

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
-Thomas Paine, founding father of the U.S.

Once there was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time is called the Dark Ages.

Thinker's Quote

Quote from WingNut!
Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith.... We need believing people.
-- Adolf Hitler, April 26, 1933

Liberals

"If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt, radio speech, 26 October 1939
