While right-wing pundits and politicians continue to claim that it is illegitimate to hold them morally or politically responsible for the massacre carried out in Tucson, Arizona last Saturday, more evidence has emerged that the gunman, Jared Lee Loughner, drew inspiration from the political language and invective of the ultra-right.

The only state that has avoided this icy blast is Florida. Does that make you want to go on a nice, warm vacation to the Sunshine State? You're not alone.

A woman who had her breasts exposed during an airport search by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was to receive a "nominal" payment as a part of a settlement agreement, according to documents released this week. The 24-year-old woman was selected for "extended search procedures" prior to boarding a plane to Amarillo, Texas in 2008. A lawsuit claimed that the TSA agent pulled her blouse completely down while frisking her. "For an extended period of time" other agents made jokes about the incident. "One male TSA employee expressed to the plaintiff that he wished he would have been there when she came through the first time and that 'he would just have to watch the video.'"

The Class War Launched by America's Wealthiest Is Getting More Savage

Countries with wide income inequality are unstable: they have large underclasses, high rates of crime and little opportunity. We’re in a class war. It’s the corporations and the very wealthiest against all the rest of us. We’re losing. In 1962 the wealthiest 1 percent of American households had 125 times the wealth of the median household. Now it’s 190 times as much. Is that a case of a rising tide lifting all boats, just a few of them a little bit higher? No.

Couple must have proper permit to continue feeding dozens each day. Bobby and Amanda Herring spent more than a year providing food to homeless people in downtown Houston every day. They fed them, left behind no trash and doled out warm meals peacefully without a single crime being committed, Bobby Herring said. That ended two weeks ago when the city shut down their "Feed a Friend" effort for lack of a permit. And city officials say the couple most likely will not be able to obtain one.

Energy companies were last night accused of "profiteering" after new figures revealed the price of average household bills has soared by 37 per cent over the last three years - as wholesale prices for energy has fallen substantially. It's a feeding frenzy of corporate looter sharks. Good by America, your corrupt incompetent government won't save you.

There are major new developments in the case of the peace activists targeted by FBI raids last September. Lawyers for the activists in Minnesota and St. Paul have learned a government agent infiltrated their group and conducted extensive spying. Going by the name "Karen Sullivan," the agent began attending organizing meetings of the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee in the lead-up to the Republican National Convention. Sullivan then took an active role in the group, chairing meetings, handling bookkeeping, and communicating with dozens of other organizations. Anti-War Committee activist Jess Sundin spoke to Democracy Now! on Wednesday.

Imagine a college student returning to her university after spending Christmas break at home. At the airport she logs on to the Internet to double check some of the sources she used in her final take-home exam for the course "Introduction to Human Rights." She gets online and begins to surf the web; however, she soon realizes that the websites of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are blocked. She calls the service provider's 800 number, only to find out that all human rights organizations' websites have indeed been restricted and that they can no longer be accessed from the airport.

Organic alfalfa is the mainstay of organic animal feed. Organic standards exclude GM. But pollen from GM alfalfa transmits GM genes to organic alfalfa.

Let's Get This Straight: There Is No Progressive Equivalent to the Right's Violent Rhetoric

The shooting in Tucson was not an anomaly. It was an inevitability, and as long as we play this foolish game of "both sides are just as bad," it will be inevitable again. Both sides are, in fact, not "just as bad," when it comes to institutionally sanctioned violent and eliminationist rhetoric. An anonymous commenter at Daily Kos and the last Republican vice presidential nominee are not equivalent, no matter how many ridiculously irresponsible members of the media would have us believe otherwise.

Jobless claims jump, wholesale food costs surge

U.S. jobless claims jumped to their highest level since October while food and energy costs boosted producer prices, pointing lingering headwinds for an economic recovery that had been showing renewed vigor. A surge in exports to their highest level in two years helped narrow the trade deficit, however, an encouraging sign. Despite the more positive outlook for growth in recent weeks, the job market still appeared to be struggling. The number of Americans filing for first-time unemployment benefits rose unexpectedly to 445,000 from 410,000 in the prior week, the Labor Department said on Thursday. It was the biggest one-week jump in about six months, confounding analyst forecasts for a small drop to 405,000.

May God Protect Global Bankers: Irish Leaders Castigated As Greatest Traitors Of All Time

January 13th, 2011

The Irish Government has recently passed the harshest budget in the history of the State with further austerity promised for the next three years and perhaps for decades. Prime Minister Brian Cowen and Finance Minister Brian Lenihan have steered Ireland from the booming prosperity of a Celtic Tiger to a ruined shell of a country where unemployment, poverty, emigration, and despair are proceeding to destroy a once proud, industrious people. They went from the 'Irish tiger' a few years ago to the Irish dead dog, after the bank took over. One wonders how much looting and greed humanity will tolerate from the banks before they stand up.
