The Two Roads Out of Recession (tags)
Recent events in Washington, D.C. should provoke fear and outrage in the average American worker. As the jobs recession staggers on, politicians and labor leaders alike seem bizarrely distanced from reality, unable to advance any ideas that remotely correspond to the basic demands of those tens of millions of unemployed, under-employed, or poorly paid workers. Instead, what we get is President Obama's recent groveling to the corporate-dominated Chamber of Commerce, pleading with them to hire workers. The President's recent speech to the Chamber implied many dangers, which neither labor federation-- AFL-CIO and Change to Win -- bothered to point out. In fact, the AFL-CIO applauded sections of the speech, rather than condemning its sinister motives. If labor unions align themselves with the President's and the Chamber's pro-corporate path out of the recession, a workers’ road to recovery will be bypassed.

Former San Quentin prison warden opposes the execution (on 1/17) of Clarence Ray Allen (tags)
Allen's capital crimes were repugnant, but they bear little on the assessment of the threat he poses. They occurred long ago and under very different circumstances.... It will be particularly difficult for the execution of Allen to be accomplished in a dignified way.... Must we insist on dragging a dying man out of the hospital just so we can inject the chemicals that will kill him a little bit sooner? ...sparing Allen from execution would be an act of decency, compassion and justice.

FAIR ACTION ALERT: Op-Ed Echo Chamber: Little Space for Dissent to Military Line (tags)
Following September's terrorist attacks, two leading dailies used their op-ed pages as an echo chamber for the government's official policy of military response. A total of 44 columns in the NY Times and Washington Post clearly stressed a military response, against only two columns stressing non-military solutions. Given the choice between a either military assault or pressing for the extradition and trial of those responsible, a substantial minority either chose extradition (30 percent) or were undecided (16 percent). These people had next to no representation in the op-ed debate.
