ON TO THE NEXT WAR!

Saul Landau Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) want war with Iran and refuse to learn lessons from the futile wars this country has perpetrated since US troops landed in Korea in 1950. They begin with “facts not in evidence,” as lawyers say. “The prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran is a threat to […]

Gingrich’s Strategy: Racism

In an excerpt from Take this Hammer (1963), James Baldwin speaks pointedly and thoughtfully about “Who is the Nigger?” In this explication of the racial slur now rendered taboo, Baldwin explains: “What you say about somebody else, anybody else, reveals you.” His examination asks his listeners to turn the racism and demonizing of people positioned […]

Newt Gingrich proposes child labor for US: 13 Year-Olds Working 16 Hours A Day For 70 Cents An Hour in China

Newt Gingrich has recently been lauded by some and under attack by others for his comments regarding child labor.  Newt, you might remember, proposed that children should be janitors in their schools so they might learn personal responsibility and the value of a ‘job’. This of course is familiar bantering among the financial elites and […]

PICTURE PRESIDENT GINGRICH

If I hear that one more time I’ll scream.

Senate Bill 6 out of Florida: Euthansia for education

The hope we see is in students themselves as they step up to the forefront to fight for the vision of Dubois, not the criminality and shilling of Sharpton and Booker T.

Many stalwart organizers like Detroit students, DC students, and others see the prevarication and the low-expectation message of Race to the Top inscription on the tomb stones of their futures.

On the same page and a different page at the same time

I hate being right about the wrong things.  My history with Daily Censored only goes back to last October.  I have been screaming about how our foreclosure mess is ruining our economic comeback since 2007.  Finally the N Y Times is on the same page with its Editorial and its Op-Ed piece at the same […]
