"During the thirty years after the end of World War II, as the economy doubled in size, so did the wages of most Americans — along with improved hours and working conditions.

Yet since around 1980, even though the economy has doubled once again (the Great Recession notwithstanding), the wages most Americans have stagnated. And their benefits and working conditions have deteriorated."

"Corporations are shifting full-time work onto temps, freelancers, and contract workers who fall outside the labor protections established decades ago," writes Robert Reich.

people these days don't know the history of labor like we do in Hawaii. That's why the GOP can't do crap here.

When you have the Koch brothers buying school boards, you shouldn't wonder what the result will be.

#criticalthinking   #education   #capitalism  
 
The right wing attack on education has done more than just make students a little less intelligent – it has completely dismantled a generation’s critical thinking abilities. And that’s exactly the kind of voter that the Republicans want. America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio talks about this with attorney Howard Nations. Support Ring of Fire by subscribing...

"Unnecessary and inappropriate jail stays can cut off residents from their jobs, children and much-needed support like mental health counseling or drug treatment. It can send them into a downward spiral that can lead to serious crime, addiction, homelessness and future incarceration. This swells the prison population, contributing to our nation’s massive problem of over-incarceration."

Very cool blog Dude - will link. Active communists, Kahlo and Rivera befriended Leon Trotsky during the late 1930s, after he fled Norway to Mexico to receive political asylum from the Soviet Union, where he was expelled and sentenced to death during Joseph Stalin's leadership.

I support universal healthcare and universal feeding.

Totally awesome that Harrison Ford is going to be OK, and Miles O'Brian got the prosthetic he needs. Let's expand that.
Same goes with quality food. Making universal feeding a priority could would do more than just feed the hungry.

"Not only are we good at destroying intrinsic motivation, we’re also great at ignoring it. Imagine your mother cooks you your favorite meal because she loves you, and after, to thank her, you put a $50 bill on the table. No one would ever actually do that, right? Why? Because her motivation for the meal was not extrinsic in motivation. Paying her might even lead to her never wanting to cook for you again."

Interesting piece. I felt that it failed to address basic universal principles of competition and luck. Because of that, it was confusing at times. I commend the author for tackling such a complex issue. Very difficult to give it its due in an article format.

"Like Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch has never represented anyone facing eviction or dispossession. She has never sued a polluter or a violator of human and civil rights. She's pro-death penalty, anti-marijuana legalization, and as far as we know, has never defended a poor person accused of a crime."

By the late 1950s, America's rulers knew domestic Jim Crow was a global strategic liability. All but diehard Southern white supremacists could see it was bad for business, that it interfered with America's penetration of the former European...
