WRHU Interview on Free Speech Zones

Ian Wilder was interviewed on WRHU by Rebecca Gianarkis about the “Free Speech Zones” at the Hofstra 2008 and 2012 Presidential Debates.

For the anti-war movement, McCain was “the lesser evil” in 2008.

IW:  I was engaging in one of those Facebook discussions I just can’t keep myself from diving into, about who to support for President.  It was one of those only-on-Facebook discussions that take place with a group of people I went to school with decades ago.  One discussant was proffering the lesser evil excuse for […]

Int’l Business Times “article” on the Fed: Important info (hold the opinion)

KW writes: A fascinating piece at IBTimes.

Did Obama’s Election mean the End of the Anti-War Movement?

A new study by U-M’s Michael Heaney and colleague Fabio Rojas of Indiana University shows that the antiwar movement in the United States demobilized as Democrats, who had been motivated to participate by anti-Republican sentiments, withdrew from antiwar protests when the Democratic Party achieved electoral success, first with Congress in 2006 and then with the […]

Wall Street’s servants become more aggressive and demanding, and there is nothing in the Democratic Party, as presently constituted, to stop them.

There is no cavalry coming over the ridge to save the people from massed capital. Certainly not the Democrats, whose self-caged left wing now finds its marginalized encampments under lockdown by their own president’s hostile patrols, while the GOP and its Tea Party irregulars howl from the circling darkness. That’s what happens when progressives maneuver […]
