The Price Was Not Right

By Michael Jay Tucker I am sitting here thinking about Tom Price, the Trump’s now (thank heaven) dismissed and disgraced Secretary of Health and Human Services… It has been some weeks since he was kicked out of office, which makes him kind of hard to remember. There have been so many Trumpsters to come and…

Why We Need Anarchy

By Peter H. Salus The logo at the head of this site has always reminded me of the black/red anarchist flags.  The past few months have convinced me that Bakunin, Kropotkin and Emma Goldman were right. “If there is a State, there must be domination of one class by another and, as a result, slavery;…

We seem to be in love…with a man we sincerely thought was a raging idiot. We so apologize. George W. Bush…yes, that Bush…made a speech on Thursday, Oct 18, 2017 that roasted Der Drumpf! Hell. It was more than a roasting. It was full-bore B52 napalm strike. It was phasers on incinerate, Mr. Spock. It…

We’ve seen several interesting articles this week. Our friend and regular contributor Robert Folkner sent us this note about Larry Flynt offering $10mil for info leading to Der Drumpf’s impeachment.

Rape Culture: Fury and Shame

You may have noticed that LR Net has not spoken much about the ongoing story of Harvey Weinstein and his long list of alleged transgressions. Our silence does not reflect our failure to feel. We are, of course, aghast. Why then have we not published more? Because we have not known quite what to say.…

Puerto Rico And The Other Citizenship

By Michael Jay Tucker Like most of us, I’ve watched with stunned fascination (read horror) while our esteemed president has reacted badly (or failed to react at all) to the situation in Puerto Rico. He has time and time again behaved incredibly badly in regard to the Commonwealth—being slow and clearly reluctant to send aid,…

Trumpcare – The Republicans Now Own Healthcare

By Bill Albee and Van Newstrom Trump is saying that the term “Obamacare” is virtually obsolete.  I agree. He thinks that by sabotaging the Affordable Care Act (ACA) the Democrats will be held responsible for the loss of health care insurance by millions of US citizens and premium increases for millions more.  The failure of…
