Obama's Electrifying Lincoln 200th Birthday Speech in Springfield, Illinois

Age of Reason

By President Barack Obama

I do not want it said that we saw an economic crisis, but did not stem it. That we saw our schools decline and our bridges crumble, but did not rebuild them. That the world changed in the 21st century, but America did not lead it. That we were consumed with small things when we were called to do great things.

Working Americans: Propped up or Just Poster Children?

Age of Reason

by Donna Smith

Feel better now Hoosiers in Elkhart? How about you Floridians in Fort Myers? Now that your communities have served as poster children for the President's stimulus package, do you see relief? My bet is that thousands of you will go to bed tonight not knowing how you'll cover the rent or the mortgage due in a couple of weeks or how to keep the utilities turned on when the disconnect notice reads pay up by Friday or else. You see, your bail-out isn't going to materialize very quickly, and some of you won't make it.

How to Lighten the Income Tax Load on the American Worker: Tax the Speculators!

Age of Reason

By RALPH NADER

Let's start with a fairness point. Why should you pay a 5 to 6 percent sales tax for buying the necessities of life, when tomorrow, some speculator on Wall Street can buy $100 million worth of Exxon derivatives and not pay one penny in sales tax?

Time to Plant Seeds

Age of Reason

by Elizabeth DiNovella

For those of us in Wisconsin, it's been a long cold winter already. The idea of only being halfway through seems daunting. I take solace in knowing gardeners and farmers are already at work planting seeds. Spring is inevitable even if the ice on the lake is a foot deep.

The Perfect Storm

Age of Reason

By Vladimir Putin

I just want to remind you that, just a year ago, American delegates speaking from this rostrum emphasised the US economy's fundamental stability and its cloudless prospects. Today, investment banks, the pride of Wall Street, have virtually ceased to exist. In just 12 months, they have posted losses exceeding the profits they made in the last 25 years. This example alone reflects the real situation better than any criticism.

The Big Stimulus - Get rid of the empire

Is It Time to Bail Out of the US?

Age of Reason

By Paul Craig Roberts

How can President Obama even think about fighting wars half way around the world while California cannot pay its bills, while Americans are being turned out of their homes, while, as Business Week reports, retirees will work throughout their retirement (which assumes that there will be jobs), while careers are being destroyed and stores and factories shuttered.

More Jefferson, Less Rove

Age of Reason

By David Michael Green

We progressives sometimes get accused of being a lot better at criticizing than at offering positive solutions. At least I do, anyhow.

And I even think that’s a somewhat fair assessment. But I also think there are some good reasons for such a negative cast to our rhetoric, at least if we’re talking about the last three decades or so, and especially the last insufferable eight years.

Why I am a Socialist

Age of Reason

by Chris Hedges

The corporate forces that are looting the Treasury and have plunged us into a depression will not be contained by the two main political parties. The Democratic and Republican parties have become little more than squalid clubs of privilege and wealth, whores to money and corporate interests, hostage to a massive arms industry, and so adept at deception and self-delusion they no longer know truth from lies. We will find our way out of this mess by embracing an uncompromising democratic socialism-one that will insist on massive government relief and work programs, the nationalization of electricity and gas companies, a universal, not-for-profit government health care program, the outlawing of hedge funds, a radical reduction of our bloated military budget and an end to imperial wars-or we will continue to be fleeced and impoverished by our bankrupt elite and shackled and chained by our surveillance state.

A Real Stimulus Requires Physical Economy, Not Money

Age of Reason

by Marcia Merry Baker and John Hoefle

The lives of the world's people depend upon a global system of production, distribution, and consumption, a chain which connects those who grow food with those who eat it, and those who mine the ores and fuels with those who turn them into the products upon which we all depend. This supply chain is a physical, logistical wonder, an essential component of civilization, and it is breaking down.

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human rights by the UNO (on 10th December 1948), it is necessary to remember that Cuba was invited to join the UN Council of Human Rights by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 9th May 2006, against the will of Washington.

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

And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
Friedrich Nietzsche

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
