Greta Thunberg's speech on economic growth (tags)
Avoiding climate breakdown will require cathedral thinking. We must lay the foundation while we may not know exactly how to build the ceiling.
Why Tax Cuts for the Rich Solve Nothing by Joseph Stiglitz (tags)
In a country with so many problems – especially inequality – tax cuts for rich corporations will not solve any of them. This is a lesson for all countries contemplating corporate tax breaks – even those without the misfortune of being led by a callow, craven plutocrat.
The "Cleaning Up" of Venice (tags)
LA City is wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars to criminalize and harass unhoused people. This does not solve anything!
Philippine President Aquino's inauguration (tags)
THERE IS A REASON to celebrate the inauguration of President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino -- we have finally dumped the most corrupt and most hated regime since the fall of the Marcos dictatorship in 1986. GMA didn't deserve the President's farewell granted her. She should have been ousted years ago. Nevertheless, Aquino’s victory rightfully belongs to the Filipino people who voted against Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her minions.
Climate Justice, Not Growth Mania (tags)
"In green capitalism, the bio-crisis is at the center of the growth strategy. The Green New Deal represents a kind of ecological inversion of Kennedy's famous sentence: Ask not what you can do for the environment but what the environment can do for you..."

It’s all just common sense.
RP Accepts US offer to help solve killings (tags)
The Philippines police will accept technical assistance from the United States to help solve a wave of political murders targeting mostly leftist dissidents, a senior police official said Wednesday. Malacañang, however, was more guarded on the issue. Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita told reporters the government wants to be “more deliberate.” Ermita said Philippine and US officials are “in contact with each other” but that no decision has been made. A special United Nations Human Rights Commission rapporteur last week alleged that that some in the Armed Forces—one of the most powerful institutions in the country—were behind the unsolved killings, which human-rights groups have said numbered in the hundreds since 2001.
DNA database used to help solve thefts (tags)
Is this a jobs program for cops and scientists? I'm not sure but I though DNA testing was very expensive? In the order of $1,000+ for a test? I also thought that tests for people on death row and with life sentences were often not given for the cost reason. I suspect this type of testing is a huge waste of money. Or perhaps better said spending huge sums of money for trivial problems
Employment Opportunities at the NSA (tags)
At the NSA, were continuously looking for bright, young, and energetic minds in our mission to infiltrate subversive organizations. Fifth column collectives and communist groups such as Indymedia, A.N.S.W.E.R., and the Open Society Institute are such criminal organizations with the malicious intent of crippling or destroying the American ideals of freedom and self-determination. These radicals are a very real threat in our society that routinely must be dealt with. The NSA is currently hiring. If you’re a patriot and looking for a rewarding career, then we’ve got a job for you.
Meeting Dean at the Fireside Cafe (tags)
Electing Dean will obviously not solve all or even many of our nation's problems. But, if this kind of civic minded motivation could carry though from households to school boards to state houses, I think we could see some meaningful change.
Neither Privatization nor Nationalization but Direct Democracy (tags)
Instead of a Privatized or Nationalized economy strive to establish a Direct Democray where ALL citizens decide policies of the State, and economy, ALL employees decide policies of their place of work, and ALL students & Staff decide policies of their site of education.
