The Economy is Just a Symptom – it’s Hypocrisy, Stupid!

It was "Christians" who enslaved and lynched Black people in the South, so does that mean that Black people should burn Bibles and prohibit Christian churches from being built in the 'hood?

Chicken Hawks, Carry Home My Seabag, The Heavy One

Thousands of our kids are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan carrying the enormous weight of the emotional baggage picked up during their experience of war. This is nothing new, we brought back the same cargo from Vietnam, Korea and WW2. All wars provide their participants with a dismal tide of dark memories, the material of a lifetime of tortured nightmares.

BOB NICHOLS: The War on Sperm in Iraq

Each isotope is prized for its illness and death dealing properties, but none more than those that affect human Germ or reproductive cells: Sperm in men and the ovaries full of eggs in women. Same for you "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" Queers - no one is exempt or immune, radiation is a perfectly equal opportunity Zapper.

GORDON DUFF: The Ground Zero Mosque Lies

There never were plans for a mosque at "ground zero." The entire story is made up by a public relations agency working with the Israeli government and the GOP. There are plans for an Islamic center in an old Burlington Coat Factory store blocks away. That far down the island of Manhattan, a couple blocks away is "across town." The idea that Israel is financing the "Ground Zero Mosque" controversy when Mossad agents were arrested, dancing in the streets on 9/11, is an obscenity.

The Religious Right: A Threat to America (Reprise)

Now, I don't have anything against religious people, per se - I was raised by Christians, and they were wonderful and loving people. In fact, I'm very spiritual myself. But if you show me a man who believes that Moses parted the Red Sea, I'll show you a man whose logical assessment of reality cannot be relied upon.

Boston Brakes, No Skidmarks in the Sky

How can you go into your neighbor’s home and kill his family, then call him the aggressor? And now they’re talking about invading Iran! It’s all about racism and greed. Think about it-- as bad as the Germans and Russians treated the Jews over the years, you’d think the Jews would have been given part of one of those countries. If they’d done that, European Jews wouldn’t have even had to leave home. But White folks don’t play that - no matter how much they hate each other.

Soldier in Iraq Loses Home Over $800 Debt

Michael Clauer is a captain in the Army Reserve who commanded over 100 soldiers in Iraq. But while he was fighting for his country, a different kind of battle was brewing on the home front. Last September, Michael returned to Frisco, Texas, to find that his homeowners' association had foreclosed on his $300,000 house—and sold it for $3,500. This story illustrates the type of legal quagmire that can get out of hand while soldiers are serving abroad and their families are dealing with the stress of their deployment. And fixing the mess isn't easy.

Rep. Alan Grayson Introduces the “War Is Making You Poor” Act

The bill would cut the DoD's budget and use that money to make the first $35,000 each American earns tax-free. Last week, as Congress prepared to pass yet another “emergency” spending bill to cover America’s costly operations in Iraq and Afghanistan -- to the tune of $159 billion this time around -- Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Florida, introduced a bill that would force the Pentagon to pick up the tab out of its ample regular budget.

Pentagon Contractor Profits Rise – Along With Casualties
