The Wars - by Ted Rudow III, MA
The war has, directly or indirectly, killed around one million people in Iraq, 220,000 in Afghanistan and 80,000 in Pakistan. Not included in this figure are further war zones such as Yemen. The figure is approximately 10 times greater than that of which the public, experts and decision makers are aware. ... And this is only a conservative estimate. The true tally, they add, could be more than two million.

FCC protects net neutrality for civil rights win! - by Color of Change
Just a year ago, very few people thought a victory this big was possible. The telecom industry was spending millions to influence the debate, and it looked like they were winning. Sadly, they succeeded in buying the support of civil rights organizations like the NAACP, Rainbow PUSH, and National Action Network, who echoed talking points from the telecom industry rooted in trickle down economics. Some Black members of Congress joined the ISPs, after taking big campaign contributions from the t...

Tragedies of our own making - by Gil Villagran, MSW
A recent count of American annual deaths caused by firearms, gangs, domestic violence, child abuse and drugs rate higher than all the victims of all wars fought since the Revolutionary War to the present, also a self-inflicted war of choice in Iraq.

Latinos Under the Influence and Tragic Consequences - by Gil Villagran, MSW

Violent and backwards - by Ted Rudow III, MA
It's my firm conviction that Mohammed and Islam were the scourge of God upon a wicked Christian world, an idolatrous corrupt Christianity, the Roman type of Christianity, because it came when the Dark Ages were almost at their depths, the 600s to the 1100s or 1200s.
