Equality In Action: Dispelling the Wage Gap Myth

Posted: September 10, 2016 at 6:00 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Oregon’s IP 28, Wealth Redistribution

Posted: April 19, 2016 at 1:10 pm   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

In a previous article, I put the spotlight on Oregon’s Initiative Petition 28 (IP 28), a gross receipts tax to be paid by C corporations nationwide on all sales of $25 million and above whether or not the company is profitable or not. According to its proponents, it’s all being done in the name of large corporations paying their “fair share” of taxes, but that’s only one goal. I dug a lot deeper into this and found that the consortium of supporters, including teachers’ unions, the SEIU and AFSME among others, are engaged in committing what amounts to a business assassination attempt on the Koch brothers, owners of Koch Industries.

Posted: November 19, 2015 at 7:35 am   /   Politics

Many in the media and some among the voting public are focused, now, on the field of candidates who are offering themselves as the presidential nominees of the Republican and Democratic Parties.

America’s March Toward Gleichschaltung

Posted: March 3, 2013 at 2:55 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Editor’s note: The recent threats from White House proxies to Bob Woodward—a journalist who didn’t toe the line—are serious and must be considered so. Comparisons to Nazi Germany are always risky, but with the huge number of unprecedented steps this administration has taken, historical context can be helpful. The article below, published in July of […]

Posted: February 16, 2013 at 11:15 am   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

“Obama waging an ‘endless campaign’,” blares The Hill, which quotes a Democratic strategist saying when it comes to the president, “stump-style appearances are ‘what he’s best at.’” Here are some things we wish the president was better at (and that would be more productive) than stump speeches: Submitting a serious plan to replace his sequester […]
