Trump’s minion prepares to gut consumer watchdog

February 17, 2017

“Personnel is policy,” says Gary Cohn, the former president of Goldman Sachs recently named to head President Trump’s National Economic Council. He got that right, and every working family should shudder that Trump — after railing against the corruptions of Goldman Sachs and other big banks in the campaign — has put six former Goldman […]


American democracy depends upon full investigation of foreign influence

February 3, 2017

“Foreign powers also will not be idle spectators. They will interpose, the confusion will increase, and dissolution of the Union ensue. ” – Alexander Hamilton, 1787 The first few days of Donald Trump’s presidency have seen what may be the beginning of the end of the Affordable Care Act, an average annual hike of $500 […]


What’s next for the economy?

January 27, 2017

The economic philosophies of Democrats and Republicans are drastically different. While neither party is interested in dismantling the predatory capitalism that extracts surplus value from workers, Republicans are more interested in reinforcing predatory capitalism and “free markets,” while Democrats are more interested in ameliorating the effects of predatory capitalism and regulating markets in ways that […]


Moral Courage: Standing up for what is right

January 20, 2017

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Even a superficial look at history reveals that no social advance rolls in on the wheels of inevitability.

Civil rights at risk under Sessions

January 13, 2017

Confirmation hearings for Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, named by Donald Trump to be attorney general of the United States, began Jan. 10, before Trump is even inaugurated. The rush and insistence on only two days of hearings reflects Republican efforts to cram the nomination through before Americans understand what is at stake. Sessions will, no […]

January 6, 2017

We are only a few days into the New Year but two starkly different political styles are already on display in Raleigh. Newly elected Governor Roy Cooper is beginning his term by methodically announcing his choices for cabinet posts after calling Republican legislative leaders to inform them of his decisions. And they are good ones. […]


We are not exceptional – just average

December 29, 2016

We in these United States love to bask in the glory of our “exceptionalism.” We are great, we are wonderful, we dominate the world. Scholars who study “us” say that our exceptionalism is rooted in the fact that we have offered leadership in international affairs. We have committed more resources than other countries to the […]


What surely tainted our election? Voter suppression

December 28, 2016

The CIA conclusion that the Russians intervened in our elections in order to help elect Donald Trump has sent Washington into one of its fabled tizzies. President Barack Obama has ordered an intelligence agency report before he leaves office. Democrats and responsible Republicans are calling for congressional investigations. Pundits are arguing the Russians — combined […]


Love Trumps Hate

December 16, 2016

This is usually a season of familiar scenes in schools across the country, with holiday programs featuring messages of peace and goodwill to all. But this year many teachers and students have been seeing another story. In the week since the election I have personally had to deal with the following issues: 1) Boys inappropriately […]


So what are we seeing?

December 2, 2016

After having spent the last nine months surviving cancer, I’ve decided that the last thing I’m going to do is allow the incoming Trump presidential administration to do me in. After all, I’ve lived through Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush, and those five took us from ultimate government […]
