Jobs are NOT coming back ...

even if manufacturing does. The bulk of job loss in these Divided United States is due to automation. (I love ya, Bernie Sanders), but cancleing trade deals is not going to keep or bring back jobs.

Resist the encroaching wave of hatred and violence.

 

It's up to us, folks. All of us.

The @GOP’s increased, incessant drumbeat & incitement of racism, hatred, bigotry, misogyny has solidified into the platform of the party in power. The negative impact to the State of the Nation has been immediate, and to the shame of all US citizens. The Trump GOP is doing its literal damndest to drag this nation back into their personal, paranoid, xenophobic hell...it's now time for all remaining citizens, for all mature and civilized adults, to not only hope but to strive to undo the damage before it sets.

Who Can Save Journalism?

What’s happening to our discourse?

Have we abandoned all common assumptions simply for the sake of opposition?

Open Letter to President Obama

Editor's note: Each time you see [...] you may insert your special name for the being occupying 1600 Pennsylavnia Ave.

Thank you for being the better man.  You attended the [...] inauguration, where I could not have.

From Alexander Woollcott to "Fake News"

Where does today’s ‘fake news’ come from?

There is no simple answer, but part of it can be traced to the development of journalistic practices and ethics over the course of the 20th century, strictures that the purveyors of ‘fake news’ turn on their heads thanks to technological innovations giving them the ability to make their publications look like real news venues for very little money.

Yes, Virginia, the Election was Hacked

People, we have a problem. A BIGLY problem. Facts are in danger of becoming extinct as we snip and snipe at each other.

A USURPER is about to be enthroned by the Electoral College and it seems there isn't a damn thing we can do about it.

*I am not here to argue how good or bad a candidate Hillary Clinton was/is, and I am not here to argue about which "group" is most responsible for the Trumpocalypse.

So let me get this straight...

So, let me get this straight - any time a disaster occurs that the Religious Right can possibly use to claim that "God is angry with the nation because of gays / abortion / marriage" etc., they go nuts making those claims.

The War on Science

You may have heard rightwing pundits such as columnist David Limbaugh, Texas Governor Rick Perry and Todd Starnes of Fox News tell you (with no real evidence, but with lots of emotional rhetoric) about the war that’s being waged against Christianity.

The Christians are absolutley safe. The Justice Department isn’t going to investigate the claims made by priests during sermons. The FCC isn’t going to regulate church sermons and force priests to be truthful and accurate. The United States Congress isn’t going to order the U.S. Treasury to take the words “In God We Trust” off of our money, and religious programming such as “The 700 Club” will not be taken off American television. Christians make up more than 75 percent of the U.S. population and they run all three branches of the U.S. government. They also control the American mainstream media and comprise most of the U.S. armed forces and law enforcement agencies. With such power and wealth and influence at their command, who in America could possibly wage war against them?

However, while many of you are focused on the fabricated “war on Christianity”, there is a very REAL war going on against science and scientists in America. Unlike David Limbaugh, Rick Perry and Todd Starnes of Fox news, I will sumbit real evidence that this war is being waged.

Just What Is "Breitbarting"?

[bumped  for relevance by roxy]

Well, for one thing, it is not journalism.

When I wrote "The Pride and Reward of Falsification: Post-Objectivity as Post-Responsibility" for the recent book News with a View (edited by Burton St. John and Kirsten Johnson) centering on Andrew Breitbart and James O'Keefe, I wasn't thinking in terms of a specific, definable strategy, certainly not one that would come to be known as "breitbarting." I should have been.

The French newspaper Le Monde reports 1.5 million living the American dream on $2 a day

Written by an American Expat who holds an M.B.A. degree living in the E.U.
My email address is: democratsramshield (at)yahoo (dot)com

Surely the death of the American working class dream is not news to the American 1 percent elites. The truth be known simply put they like it that way, as they surely are the architects of the GOP led class warfare against the American working class.

(The Statue of Liberty in the photo below is located in Paris, France and is believed to have become emblematic as the American dream now resides in Europe instead of America).
