Thoughts on American wars and aggression

January 16, 2012

Thoughts on American wars and aggression: • If, in 2002-3. the US really believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, then why did they send in more than 100,000 U.S. troops who would therefore certainly be annihilated? • During the Vietnam War some University of Michigan students created a brouhaha when they threatened to […]

Ron Paul the kind of President he would be

January 12, 2012

Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul is a guy who has been in Congress on and off for 12 terms, dating back to 1976. His views have been pretty consistent, and because he has run for president several times, also pretty well known. A practicing physician who claims to have helped in the births of over […]

Are Americans gods with the moral authority to determine who will live and who will die?

January 2, 2012

We will never know the artists, poets, and peacemakers who have never lived because their parents were killed in senseless wars. Imagine walking or driving through Kansas City, Kansas, or Syracuse, N.Y., or Rockford, Illinois, and knowing that every single man, woman, and child living in one of those cities represents a person who is […]

Clandestine Pentagon commandos wage secret warfare in all corners of the world

August 7, 2011

Without the knowledge of the American public, a secret force within the U.S. military is undertaking operations in a majority of the world’s countries. While it’s well known that U.S. Special Operations forces are deployed in the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq, and it’s increasingly apparent that such units operate in murkier conflict zones […]

SOCOM the US Military’s secret military deployed worldwide

August 7, 2011

Born of a failed 1980 raid to rescue American hostages in Iran, in which eight U.S. service members died, U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) was established in 1987. Since then, SOCOM has grown into a combined force of startling proportions. Made up of units from all the service branches, including the Army’s “Green Berets” and […]

Solving the Debt Crisis is Easy

July 30, 2011

As one who teaches Economics 101 and, as a professor and international consultant who makes a career out of giving macroeconomic advice to other countries, I find the current impasse in the United States both appalling in its potential risks and frustrating in the simplicity of the solutions that are hardly even talked about. The […]

Real power rests with the corporations

January 16, 2011

Power does not rest with the electorate. It does not reside with either of the two major political parties. Power rests with corporations. And corporations gain very lucrative profits from war, even wars we have no chance of winning. The effort to return the US Congress to Democratic control in 2006 and end the war […]

A letter to the Poorman from the Richman

January 17, 2010

The chances are pretty good that you’ll slave away at some miserable job the rest of your life. That’s because you were in all likelihood born into the wrong social class. Let’s face it — you’re a member of the working caste. Sorry! You’d probably need a book the size of the yellow pages to […]
