The Battle Over CEO Pay: When the Top 1 Percent Take on the Top 0.01 Percent

Salvatore Babones, Truthout: ''By all accounts, America s corporations are doing better than ever. Corporate profits are at all-time record highs. Corporate taxes are at record lows. So, why are the top 1 percent so angry? It may be because America s ever-rising inequality has finally caught up with them.... They are not used to making sacrifices. As the top 1 percent start to share at least some of the indignities suffered by the other 99 percent, it is likely that their quiescence about rising inequality will start to change.''

Leaving Afghanistan by Staying

David Swanson, War Is a Crime: ''Obama is full of praise for U.S. troops, as if they have benefitted Afghanistan. And he is full of concern for the suffering of U.S. troops and U.S. citizens.... 'Neither Americans nor the Afghan people asked for this war,' Obama said, forgetting that one of those two countries had invaded the other one and occupied it for over a decade. 'The reason America is safe is because of you,' Obama told U.S. troops, forgetting that the war has made our nation more hated around the world.''

Alan Grayson, Truthout: ''To little fanfare, President Obama announced last week that he signed an agreement to extend the US military occupation of Afghanistan for twelve more years. No one noted the irony of this, since under our Constitution, President Obama can be president for no more than another four and a half years.''
