The Body Politic
Paul Haeder: One week after Harvey’s Houston devastation, the plague of predatory capital comes in like syphilis – threatening to call in the debt police, chiding the homeless now with bad credit reputations.
Lila Garrett: Eight out of 100 of our US Senators are the only ones who voted against the largest arms budget the world has every seen and to the everlasting shame of the media it was done so quietly that the world heard little if anything about it.
Berry Craig: Social Darwinists demonized unions. Trump prefers “right to work” states. Paul introduced a national “right to work” bill, though it’s evidently going nowhere.
Sylvia Torres-Guillén and Peter Eliasberg: Students attending California public schools, charter schools, or private high schools may not be disciplined for non-disruptive protests during patriotic exercises
Joshua Leibner: Progressive Democrats can no longer pretend that the Democrats who support (and are supported by) billionaire Ed Reform are anything but rapacious destructors of the very definition of public education.
Randy Shaw: Newsom could get the majority of progressive votes in the June statewide primary. Even though in San Francisco he remains a “moderate.”
Joe Mathews: We’re a progressive check on Red-State power—but we unbalance the Constitutional system.
