For a Future of Solidarity and Justice

Reinhard Gaede | The European social model is an alternative to the American mini-welfare state. The irrationality of finance capitalism appears in that the stock price rises while the value of labor falls. The economy produces more every year with fewer persons. Work is not a commodity. Labor is shamelessly robbed of its rights and dignity. more...  0 Comments

U.S. Democrats Still Weak and Useless!

Peter Stern | U.S. Democrats Still Weak and Useless!
The Bush administration's policies, goals, objectives and direction will remain an American staple for many years.

While both houses of the U.S. Congress have slight Democrat majorities, they are not sufficient to change the Bush administration's foreign and domestic policies --- even if the Democratic Party wanted to make any changes.

Without a 2/3 majority, Bush may still veto any bill or resolution without any retribution. Hence, the Democrats can NOT override successfully ANY Bush veto.

In other words, without such a majority and a real commitment from the Democratic Party, American citizens will remain deep within the muck and corruption of the current administration's haphazard direction for many years to come and our grandchildren will continue to pay the bulk in lost lives, freedoms and tax dollars for our poor judgment.
