Defying the Politics of Fear

truthdig By Chris Hedges Nov 6, 2016 Chris Hedges gave this talk Saturday evening at a rally in Philadelphia for Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka. No social or revolutionary movement succeeds without a core of people who will not betray their vision and their principles. They are the building blocks of social change.

Bernie broke my heart, but Dr. Jill Stein heals the wound

OpEd News By Jeanine Molloff July 15, 2016 My one-sided ‘lurid’ love affair with Bernie Sanders has come to a screeching halt.

The Affordable Care Act keeps insurance companies as middleman between patients and doctors

Ursula Rozum syracuse.com February 16, 2014 I honestly can’t remember my last doctor visit. Like many in our country, I find the prospect of interacting with the United States medical industry anxiety inducing and depressing. This month I finally signed up for a health care plan on the New York State exchange. Choosing an insurance plan on the exchange required trying to predict what kind of scary health emergency I might have and how to make sure that if misfortune strikes, I’d take the mildest financial hit. Since none of the plans seemed very good, I decided to sign up…
