Bündnis rief in Bonn zum Zahltag auf

Ein Bündnis aus Erwerbsloseninitiativen und Mitgliedern der Linkspartei hatten heute am Bonner Jobcenter zu einem 'Zahltag' aufgerufen. 'Zahltag' hat sich mittlerweise als Aktions- und Protestform etabliert, um Erwerbslose im Amt solidarisch zu begleiten damit berechtigte Ansprüche durchgesetzt werden können, was oftmals einem Betroffenen alleine nicht gelingt. Die Bonner Hartz IV-Behörde scheint diese Aktionsform des Protests überhaupt nicht zu mögen und sorgte heute für ein zusätzliches Aufgebot an Sicherheitsmitarbeitern. Weiter lesen:ür+Arbeit


Romney Estate Tax Cut Would Save the Koch Brothers Up to $8.7 Billion Each

Pat Garofalo, ThinkProgress: 'Tomorrow, 2012 GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is slated to give a 'major spending policy speech' at Americans For Prosperity s Defending the American Dream Summit. Both the conference and AFP itself are funded by money from the billionaire Koch brothers. Leaving aside that Romney intends to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, he has proposed a huge giveaway to the very rich by suggesting the complete elimination of the estate tax ... Currently, more than half of the estate tax is paid by the richest 0.1 percent of households. And according to a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation, the Koch brothers heirs' would save a combined $17.4 billion in estate taxes thanks to Romney s plan.'

Too Big to Jail

Robert Scheer, Truthdig: 'Can we all agree that a $1 billion swindle represents a lot of money, and the fact that Citigroup agreed last week to pay a $285 million fine to settle SEC charges for 'misleading investors' demonstrates a damning admission of culpability? So why has Robert Rubin, the onetime treasury secretary who went on to become Citigroup chairman during the time of the corporation s financial shenanigans, never been held accountable for this and other deep damage done to the U.S. economy on his watch? Rubin s destructive impact on the economy in enabling these giant corporate banks to run amok was far greater than that of swindler Bernard Madoff, who sits in prison under a 150-year sentence.'

Iran Plot: A Pretext for War

Richard Javad Heydarian, Foreign Policy in Focus: 'At this juncture, it may be too early to pass a credible judgment on the substance and validity of the allegations, but there are just too many reasons to dismiss them as another cynical attempt to further isolate Iran. In the greater scheme of things, such accusations might be part of America s strategy to push its 'regime change' agenda in Iran. Although only a trial in an impartial, credible, and civilian court could shed light on the truthfulness of the U.S. claims, we have every reason to take Washington s allegations with a grain of salt.'
