THIS TIME, GET THE DEBATES MODERATED BY DEBATE JUDGES!

on October 12, 2019, 6:56 AM / in Opinion

I was on a debate team in High School, and we were almost undefeated.  We lost only one debate, and the debate was about forming labor unions and the prospect of using compulsory arbitration to settle employer/employee pay and benefits disputes.

Trump Is History and So Is the USA

on October 12, 2019, 6:39 AM / in Opinion

By Paul Craig Roberts |  Information Clearing House When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported […]

More ‘Stupid War’ in Syria

on October 12, 2019, 6:34 AM / in Opinion

By Eric S. Margolis More war in wretched Syria.  Half the population are now refugees; entire cities lie shattered by bombing; bands of crazed gunmen run rampant; US, French, Israeli and Russian warplanes bomb widely. Now, adding to the chaos, President Donald Trump has finally given Turkey, NATO’s second military power, the green light to invade parts of northeastern Syria after he […]
