  • How to Talk to Your Family About Racism on Thanksgiving

    Harper's Baazars ^ | November 19, 2018 | Rachel Cargle
    Toxic ideologies often start around family dinner tables. It's not just an uncle saying a racist joke, or a grandmother determining her xenophobic ideas as “a part of her time.” These comments seep into how we make decisions in voting booths, how judges rule in their chambers, how teachers guide students in school classrooms, how employment decisions are made, and how police react in high-stakes situations. After a year of relentless atrocities that don’t always make for easy conversation at the dinner table, it's important to make Thanksgiving preparations beyond the tablescape and the menu. This year, I want you...
  • My Outline for a Federal Wealth Tax

    To pay off the ~$21 trillion dollar federal debt, which amounts to about $60,000 per American, it is probably necessary to have annual federal wealth taxation. It is best to introduce the federal wealth tax when asset values are high, so a smaller percentage of rich people's assets have to get taxed to pay off the national debt. The tax might be levied upon the total of net personal property financial holdings and the equity in real property. The rates might be: 1% on the equity in real property habitually resided in by the filer(s), 2% on the equity in...
  • Captain America: Donald Trump is 'Putin's puppet'

    Captain America has called Donald Trump a "puppet" following a summit between the US leader and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Well, the actor who plays him has anyway. Chris Evans was reacting to Mr Trump's decision to defend Russia over allegations it interfered in the US election that made Donald Trump president - contradicting what his own intelligence agencies say. The Avenger called it a "disgrace". "Politics aside", the Democrat said on Twitter, "This is 100% un-American".
  • Parkland parent slams N.J. Senate President Sweeney on Twitter over gun fees

    Newark Star-Ledger ^ | June 26, 2018 | S.P. Sullivan and Chris Sheldon
    The parent of a child killed in the Parkland shooting massacre ripped New Jersey state Senate President Stephen Sweeney on social media for not publicly supporting Gov. Phil Murphy's push to increase fees for buying and selling firearms in the state. The move, which Murphy has pressed for months, was part of the budget proposal the Democratic governor sent to legislative leaders from his own party in June. But it was not included in the budget passed by the state Senate and Assembly last week, leading to outcry from gun control advocates. Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was killed in...
  • Are Soda Machines Bulletproof?

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 6/21/2018 | J Hines
    Could a soda machine stop a large-caliber bullet and save your life? Another question to ponder with us plinkers that have nothing to do. I'm sure most of us normal people don’t think of this but if there were a hail of bullets coming their way. They probably would not think twice to get behind it for some cover. Which brings us back to the question. Again, Youtuber Edwin Sarikissian tries out some different calibers on a vending machine just to see if it is bulletproof. The results were very impressive. This metal box stood up to .500 Magnum and...

    Over the past couple of days the subject of athlete activism, always present to some degree in American sports, but recently revived by Colin Kaepernick and a few other football players in the form of silent protests during the National Anthem, exploded into a headline dominating news story. Lighting the fuse: President Trump directly inserting himself into the controversy. He did so during a speech on Friday night and during a series of tweets Saturday and continuing into this morning in which he urged NFL owners to “fire” or suspend players who do not stand for the national anthem. He...

    Republican political strategist Rick Wilson has become one of the avatars of the “Never Trump” movement on cable news telecasts. And on August 21, via the Simon and Schuster Free Press imprint, Wilson will have a book to plug during his frequent TV hits. “Everything Trump Touches Dies is my take on the damage Donald Trump has done to our nation, our politics, and our sanity. I pull no punches, take no prisoners, and show how Donald Trump has led Republicans off a political cliff, broken our institutions, and shattered the lives and reputations of everyone around him,” Wilson wrote...
  • GOP Strategist Steve Schmidt Rips ‘Imbecile’ Trump For Trade War

    Republican strategist Steve Schmidt tore into Donald Trump while appearing on MSNBC today — calling the president an “imbecile” for his trade wars and adding that he has “no idea what he’s talking about.” As news circulated this morning that the stock market dropped dramatically after China responded to Trump’s tariffs with trade restrictions of their own, the president denied that there is a “trade war” happening, despite all evidence pointing to the opposite being true. Schmidt noted this while discussing the issue with a fired-up Stephanie Ruhle this morning:

    I buy almost all my food at the farmer's market and I am fortunate that I live near several different weekend markets. One reason I do this is that I like to support small businesses like farms. Another is that I care about where my food comes from and how, in the case of meat, it is treated and fed. Factory farming is a nightmare. My farmer's markets also accept WIC so anyone can come by and purchase fresh vegetables, herbs, fruit or more importantly: bacon. I gave out bacon from my pig farmer to my friends for Christmas because...

    If you read the New York Times and Washington Post, or watch MSNBC and CNN, you would think President-elect Trump brought segregation-era George Wallace back from the dead and appointed him to be the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. (In reality, Sessions campaigned against Wallace as a college Republican, but that’s a story for another time.) read at http://resistancefeed.com/2016/11/21/sessions-broke-back-kkk-alabama-media-think-hes-racist/

    Bernie Sanders offers a real solution that the current condidates wont have. Bernie Sanders would first of all return tax levels to the way they were in the 1950s, tax the rich 90% and use the massive massive massive surplus from that tax to create jobs for the unemployed. One trillion should be paid for rebuilding infrastructure and bridges and creating jobs. Another trillion will be used to create new healthcare opertunety for workers to earn doctors degrees and to heal the sick and poor. Bernie sanders will also create government funded industries and factories that will create paying jobs...

    Newsday ^ | 9-3-15 | Noah Feldman
    What's in an oath? That fascinating question arose as part of a crusade by Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk Kim Davis to seek a religious exemption from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. Before the U.S. Supreme Court put the kibosh on her claim, Davis in her legal brief argued that she understood her oath of office "to mean that, in upholding the federal and state constitutions and laws, she would not act in contradiction to the moral law of God." Why? Because her oath included the words, "So help me God." Of course, the oath of office prescribed by the...

    Who doesn’t love Bill O’Reilly? He’s witty, charming, sarcastic, and has just a little bit of that pompousness that makes the guy borderline adorable, in a non-homo kind of way. He also tells-it-like-it-is, and he’s pretty darn good at it. Unfortunately, these characteristics are not fully appreciated by State Department spokesperson Marie Barf Harf, who has been taking every opportunity she can to throw the conservative powerhouse under the bus for criticizing one of her female colleagues, a move she labeled “sexist.” Of course, it’s pretty dang hard to take any claim of “sexism” or “racism” serious from a liberal,...

    Israel receives military and financial assistance, and also some diplomatic support at the United Nations, but the US puts pressure on Israel to surrender parts of the homeland... It seems to me a Ron Paul presidency would be good for Israel and for the United States. Its foreign policy non-interventionism and its concern to protect national sovereignty would provide Israel with a greater impetus to increase its own independence and sense of national honor. I hope American Zionists will resist the immediate, meretricious attractions of American financial assistance for Israel. Ron Paul would both end this infantilizing, and even corrupting,...
