Sinking in the Swamp

The swamp is not being drained. It is becoming more toxic by the day. It is now ebb tide at the pig farm and the sewage is in the pool where your children go to swim.

Stop the Idiocy! Stop the Mattis-ness!

The (revised) toll in lives was: 36, 546 US soldiers, an estimated 1.5 million Koreans on both sides of the parallel (mostly civilians), 200,000 Chinese soldiers, and another 4000 soldiers from armies that allied themselves with the United States.  In addition, there were more than one million wounded and/or missing.

Can NATO Still Make America Great?

The link below goes to an article I wrote for the previous print edition of Counterpunch magazine.  I am sharing it in the hope that some of you who read it will then subscribe to the print version of Counterpunch.  Why should you do that since you can read Counterpunch online for free?  Because most of the articles in the print issues are not reprinted online is a good place to start....

Sharpening the Contradictions from the Fifty Yard Line

When I used to watch Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas and Joe Namath throw the ball back in my earlier years, it seemed most NFL players were white.  They were also assumed to be very patriotic and supportive of the US war on Vietnam and in favor of the more conservative side of US politics.  Whether or not this was as universal as it seemed to be is hard to say since NFL players were not known for expressing their political views in public.
