General Motors: Homicidal Fugitive from Justice: Yes, it’s official. General Motors engaged in criminal wrongdoing for long knowing about the lethal defect in its ignition switch that took at least 174 lives and counting, plus serious injuries.

All Executions On Hold in Oklahoma Following Last-Minute Stay for Richard Glossip: JUST ONE DAY after Oklahoma Gov.

From Inside Rikers Island, a Harrowing Look at the Torture of Solitary Confinement: Within any brutal and isolated institution, new language tends to form, like scar tissue. In the 1990s, Rikers Island—New York City’s largest jail, encircled by the East River—was no exception. Corrections officers, mental health workers, and administrators had a special name for inmates in solit...
Trump Gets Refugee Numbers Wrong: Donald Trump keeps saying he “heard” the Obama administration plans to accept 200,000 Syrian refugees. He misheard, because that’s inaccurate. The administration has said its goal is to accept 185,000 total refugees of all nationalities over the next two fiscal years. It is committed to accepting...
Gun Laws, Deaths and Crimes: President Barack Obama claimed that “states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths.” Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, meanwhile, has made nearly the opposite claim, saying states with stringent gun control laws have “the highest gun crime rates in the nation.” I...

All over the country, Wells Fargo is making headlines for launching a multimillion-dollar homeowner assistance program called HomeLIFT, which among other things offers $15,000 down payment gra...
Why Do We Care Whose Side the Pope Is On?: So the pope is here. His arrival has spawned a Drake/Meek Mill-style diss battle within the pundit class, pitting conservatives bemoaning the pope's false prophecy against liberals swooning over his platitudinous anti-capitalism. It's like the Colts-Jets game from Monday night. I can't decide ...
Interests, Ideology And Climate – NYTimes.com – Paul Krugman: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/09/opinion/krugman-interests-ideology-and-climate.html?emc=edit_th_20140609&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=26842820&_r=0
How a Big Agribusiness Firm Infiltrated the EPA and Made a Mockery of Science: Regardless of who tried to bring the toxicity truth to light, the power of corporate money and resources controlled the science and the government approvals. It remains legal today. There is a good question in the article. It asks, why the burden of proof is not on Syngenta to positively prov...
The wrong side of Hillary: Bad things tend to happen to those who oppose the Clintons.
