Liberals can point to plenty of countries where progressive economic and social policies have resulted in a good outcome. I'd like to know which nations conservatives regard as shining examples of their ideology.
Very glad to see this action taken by a group of Nobel Laureates. What an embarrassment for the Democratic Party. What the hell was Wesley Clark thinking when he got involved with this trash TV program?
If you have friends or family who struggle with vision issues, there is reason to be hopeful. Medical researchers may be close to a huge breakthrough, using stem cell technology to stabilize and perhaps improve vision in patients who are legally blind or vision-impaired. I know folks who are affected, so I've been following this story for awhile, and am hoping that we get definitive news from trial injections that were done in California this summer. The field of regenerative medicine strikes me as a fundamentally sound approach, rather than bombarding ourselves with toxic pharma products that mainly treat the symptoms. With health care costs getting out of control, perhaps stem cells offer a way for us to deal with health issues and the huge financial challenges associated with treatment of various ailments. The Chinese are very interested in stem cell therapy, and are already taking big steps in that direction.
In response to the controversy generated by Wikileaks, our government and its faithful press have managed to pull off two feats of public relations magic that have obscured the underlying, very serious issues.
Here's Bernie Sanders, addressing Obama's cave on the tax cut issue, plus a few other videos of Sanders in action.
What Julian Assange and his colleagues at Wikileaks are doing amounts to much more than simply embarrassing our diplomatic corps and pissing off the Justice Department. Enclosed below is a video presentation that explains the broader Wikileaks agenda, and how the organization plans to achieve their long term goals. These guys are brilliant, and there is good reason for the global power elite and the corrupt oligarchs to be concerned. The most common misconception about Wikileaks is that it is somehow trying to undermine America. What they are actually trying to do is force America to live up to its own stated values.
Since the recent implosion of the American financial system, I've been wondering why we don't hear more about the notion of moving our personal resources into credit unions?
Would like to have some input from the Kos community on the idea of planting an "Obama Tree" to signify the beginning of a new direction for our country.
Obama moves into the lead in national polls! Let's make this the moment where the tide turns and we don't look back....
Associated Press Washington Bureau Chief Ron Fournier posted the following article shortly after Hillary Clinton's speech at the Democratic Convention Tuesday evening.
Yesterday the New York Times published a hit piece on Obama entitled, "McCain Displays Credentials as Obama Relaxes." The article is a prime example of how Big Media tries to establish narratives and shape the political landscape in the USA.
John McCain usually gets a free pass from the corporate media, because he is a grandfatherly kind of guy who invites reporters onto his 'Straight Talk Express' bus and serves them doughnuts. But the editorial decision to let McCain off the hook in spite of his recent participation in a motorcycle-and-sex extravaganza in South Dakota has lowered the bar for political journalism to new depths.
