text Ottawa, Kansas Police Cure for Depression is 16 Bullets - by Riots Needed in Kansas
Joseph Jennings, an 18 year old just released from the psychiatric hospital was shot 16 times by the Ottawa, Kansas police department despite being known by them as being depressed and suicidal. He was unarmed at the time and family members pleaded with the cops not to shoot, they were told by cops to stand back or be shot themselves. The police then proceeded to pump 16 bullets into Jennings. Is this how police in Kansas are trained to handle the mentally ill?

text Who Cares? A Feminist Critique of the Care Economy - by Nancy Folbre

text Clinton, Obama and the New Era of American Empire - by Norman Birnbaum
Clinton did not hesitate to defend what she referred to as the “ugly” aspects of the Cold War—but did not name the nations in which the US had intervened, frequently to uphold or install brutal regimes which were reliably anti-Communist.

text Horrors of American Human Rights Record - by Glass Houses
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The American human rights record would make Hitler proud. China has been producing an annual report on American human rights that Americans should read. The latest police killings in Missouri and police attacks on the free speech protests are just the tip of the iceberg. Clearly, the American anthem title should be O So Proudly We Fail.
