‘Must be the season of the RICH’

“I honestly think that until we get on the same page, you can’t tell a woman about their abuse. A man cannot do that. No one can. It is so individual and so personal, it’s galling when a powerful man steps up and starts dictating the terms, whether he intends it or not.”

Where is Marley’s ghost… When we really need him?

The overwhelming preponderance of dead-end box store jobs and part-time positions offering little or no benefits is what we have become in this so-called modern era.

Capitalism and the world we are creating

The 1930s were a rough time for all who labored.... Or sought work.

Franken’s perfect, defiant taunt to Trump: ‘I’ll resign if you do’

If pressure were to mount on Franken, or more accusers surface, here’s one win-win idea: Senator, why not fall on your sword and offer to resign only if Trump does?

2017 elections bring hope for the future

It is too soon to say, but there is one year until the midterms, and many of us are waiting with bated breath.

The voiceless left stands before the monster of history

If you do not take hold of the monster within, he will take hold of you. Both on a personal basis as well as the monster we know as human history.

2 or 3 things I know about Capitalism (with apologies to Jean-Luc Godard)

We either struggle and strive, by and any and all means, to end the system -- or it will end us.
