Protecting Ourselves

  I find it ironic that we're getting ready to spend $50 million to arm and train the "moderate" Syrian rebels so they can fight against ISIL in the Middle East yet, according to the Republican party, we can't afford to pay for food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid or even Social Security (even though we've paid into some of those programs to insure we'd be covered as we age). It's also ironic that as we face imminent danger from the effect of climate change, many of those same members of Congress who voted to send the cavalry to Iraq and [...]

Keep Pushing Back

Three years ago today, a group of New Yorkers descended on Wall Street's Zuccotti Park to protest the problems caused by and lack of any consequences for those responsible for the financial meltdown of 2008. Obviously, there was much more that the original Occupiers of Wall Street were protesting, but the wealth and justice inequality that is synonymous with Wall Street was the unifying evil that was being fought. Today, though, I was hard pressed to find any remnants of the once-promising protest movement. Even the official Occupy Wall Street website had no new front-page article to commemorate the day. Ironically, [...]

What’s the Matter Here?

The stories about domestic abuse in the NFL were bad enough. The video of Ray Rice dragging his unconscious then-fiance from an elevator provided the visual that enraged us. The second video of him landing the blow that knocked her into the raid and knocked her out somehow changed everything in the discussion of the culture of violence surrounding that already violent sport. As abhorrent as someone as big, strong and powerful as a professional football player hitting a woman who is most certainly stronger and weaker than he, the news that one of these brutes brutalized his child and defended [...]
