Time for Public Sector Unions to Fight Back

Shamus Cooke, Truthout: 'The media attack on public sector unions has reached a timely zenith, perfectly in sync with the politicians' anti-union deathblow. This coordinated campaign is happening nationwide, and includes Democratic and Republican marauders on a state-by-state basis. There are several state battlegrounds where this war is coming to completion, but no winner has been declared. If Democratic and Republican governors are able to force massive concessions on public sector unions - and the corresponding cuts to the services their members deliver to the public - the labor movement and the social safety net will both be decimated, paving the way for even more brutal, future attacks.'

How Shadowy Right-Wing Front Groups Engineered Our National Embrace of Debt Reduction Over Job Creation

Lee Fang, ThinkProgress: "Since the end of the Bush presidency, shadowy right-wing groups, many of them formed for this very purpose, have primed the public with a sophisticated public relations campaign to shift the national discourse to a focus on debt reduction. Many of these groups do not appear partisan, and have figured out ways around registering their activity with the Federal Elections Commission (so the true extent to their ad-buying is rarely recorded).'

Stop Calling This a 'Debt Crisis', It Isn t

Dave Johnson, Campaign for America s Future: 'You have probably been hearing about 'the debt crisis.' I can't open a newspaper or turn on the radio or TV without hearing about 'the debt crisis.' Well stop calling it that, because that isn t what is going on. There is no debt crisis; the only crisis going on is the threat of several members of the House to vote against raising the debt ceiling if they don t get their way, thereby sending our country into default. They are trying to get around the rules of democracy and force deep cuts in the things We, the People do for each other while keeping taxes really low for the wealthy.'

The Racial Wealth Gap s Larger Than Ever. Here is How It Will Destroy Us

Kai Wright, ColorLines.Com: 'The racial wealth gap has been enormous ever since the Census Bureau began measuring it 25 years ago. But it has never been larger than today. The median wealth of a white family is now at least 20 times higher than that of a black family and 18 times that of a Latino family, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center. Pew looked at wealth numbers between 2005 and the technical end of the US recession in 2009. It found that the racial wealth gap exploded in that time period, as blacks and Latinos suffered dramatic blows from the collapsed housing market.'

When the super-rich cry 'class warfare!'

Salon
by Michael Winship

07/28/11

'There s class warfare, all right,' Warren Buffett told the New York Times two years before the 2008 crash, 'but it s my class, the rich class, that s making war, and we are winning.' I ll say. Which makes the whining of the moneyed - in addition to the winning - all the more annoying. Especially after the Obama White House has bent over backward for them - simply remember the concessions on healthcare and financial reform, for two - and all too often has vassaled itself to the knights of the Fortune 500, kowtowing all the way to the bank where they keep the big campaign contributions...

Polizei erschießt Schwarzfahrer: Warum weiß man sofort, dass er schwarz war?

'Vor wenigen Tagen, am 16. Juli 2011 wurde der 19 jährige Kenneth Harding von Polizisten in San Franciscos öffentlichem Nahverkehr 10 mal beschossen und erlag seinen Verletzungen. Anlaß für das Massaker war der Versuch Hardings, sich durch Weglaufen einer Fahrschein Kontrolle zu entziehen.Die Polizei war mit mehreren Beamten im Einsatz. Anstatt dem verblutenden Kenneth Harding irgend eine Form von Hilfe zu leisten, bedrohten sie ihn bis zu seinem Tod weiterhin mit gezogener Waffe (siehe Bild) und richteten ihre Waffen auch auf empörte Passant_innen?' so beginnt der Bericht 'San Francisco: Polizei erschießt Schwarzfahrer' von Clara auf Indymedia vom 26. Juli 2011. In den Ergänzungen zum Artikel heißt es u.a.: 'Der Anstieg der Polizei Brutalität löst große Wut aus und führt zu Protesten. Am 16. Juli, dem Tag, an dem Harding erschossen wurde, kam es zu spontanen Demonstrationen in der Bay Area. Stationen der BAY AREA RAPID TRANSPORT (B.A.R.T.) und MUNI CARS wurden vorübergehend blockiert. Am 20. Juli hatte die Gruppe 'No Justice - No BART' zu einer Demo in Gedenken an die Ermordung Oscar Grants aufgerufen. Die bestimmende Parole der Demo war: 'How do you spell murderer? S.F.P.D.!' (übersetzt: 'wie buchstabierst du Mord? - S.F.P.D." = San Francisco Police Department). Auf einem großen Transparent der Demo war zu lesen: 'You Can t Shoot Us All!' (übersetzt: Ihr könnt uns nicht alle erschießen!' Von den 150 Teilnehmer_Innen wurden 46 von der Polizei festgenommen. Bereits einige Tage zuvor, am 11. Juli, gab es eine 150 Menschen große Demonstration auf der B.A.R.T Station, in der Charles Hill kürzlich von der Polizei ermordet worden war. Die Parole: 'No justice! No peace! Disband the BART police!' (übersetzt: Keine Gerechtigkeit! Kein Frieden! Löst die BART Polizei auf!') Es gelang den Demonstrant_Innen für mehrere Stunden, drei der zentralen B.A.R.T. Stationen in San Francisco zu blockieren: http://de.indymedia.org/2011/07/312579.shtml

Hungersnot: Wer ruft die Piratenabwehr?

Somalia - das ist die Piratenküste. War das Land in den letzten Jahren anders in den Schlagzeilen der Kommerzmedien? Warum es die Piraterie überhaupt gibt, wieviel Geld in militärische Aufrüstungsprogramme gesteckt wurde, all das wurde zumeist ausgeblendet. Jetzt ist auch dieses Land von einer Hungersnot betroffen, und es wird Geld gespendet. Es gibt die Dürre, ohne Zweifel, wie in den angrenzenden Regionen der benachbarten Länder auch. Es gibt aber auch die Aktivität von bewaffneten Milizen, aus US Geldern bezahlt, die zum Kampf gegen die Al Shahab Milizen gegründet wurden - und die eben genau im Zentrum der Hungerregion jegliche normale landwirtschaftliche Tätigkeit unmöglich gemacht haben, schreibt Glen Ford in 'America s role in Somalia s humanitarian crisis' das am 20. Juli 2011 bei Pambazuka erschienen ist..: http://pambazuka.org/en/category/features/75059

The collateral is us

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Richard Schwartzman

07/28/11

The witching hour is nigh and the threat of the U.S. defaulting on the federal debt is being bandied about as if it were the boogeyman. Fear mongers from the left and right both say the country will go belly up unless the debt ceiling is raised by the Aug. 2 deadline, that it will no longer be able to pay on its $14.3 trillion debt or honor other financial obligations unless it goes further into debt by borrowing more money...

Is the president in recovery?

Orange County Register
by Victor Davis Hanson

07/28/11

President Obama does not care much about deficits - other than worrying that big debt might matter in his re-election campaign. In his first three budgets, Obama borrowed nearly $5 trillion. ... This spring he proposed the largest annual deficit in U.S. peacetime history, which is why his $3.7 trillion budget for 2012 was rejected in the Senate by a 97-0 vote. In other words, under Obama, the government during the last three years has borrowed on average about $4 billion each day...

Debt debate: A pox on both parties

As the August 2 deadline looms for Congress to extend the debt ceiling, Democrats and Republicans are both fiddling while Rome burns. Each party has valid concerns about the other s approach to avoiding default, yet each is relying on counterproductive articles of faith. To address the debt crisis, both sides must give up their cherished, but misguided, ideas...

It?s not 'default'
Slate
by Annie Lowrey

07/27/11

Yes, something awful and weird will happen in early August, but it isn t going to be default. The Treasury will need to issue more bonds to make promised payments to the country s creditors, senior citizens, federal employees, and so on. Without that extra cash, the federal government will need to miss 40 to 45 percent of its payments, according to calculations by the Bipartisan Policy Center. But that is not default. Default is too tidy a term for it. The chaos that might hit after Aug. 2 has no precedent, and therefore no name...
