textAmerican Visitors Killed New Zealand by Mike J.
My buddy was killed in a tragic car crash while visiting New Zealand a while back. But, the authorities didn't even release his name! He was apparently one of more than 5,000 foreigners who have been killed in that country since 2000. The truth about the number of visitors killed in NZ, highlighted recently by the White Island volcano disaster, is very disturbing....

Vancouver B.C. has 26 community centers that give an identity to working and nonworking persons. Three hours of free computer use, libraries, game rooms, gyms, theaters and casserole dinners for $4 are among the many amenities.

textMake Social Democracy Great Again by Pascal Zwicky and Cedric Wormwood
Erik Olin Wright spoke of smashing, taming, escaping and eroding capitalism as alternatives of a transformational left. We must resist the "selective perception" of the elite that ignores market distortions (tax havens, stock buybacks, micro-second trading, insider trading), market failures, political failures, and the attacks on the poor, seniors, disabled, children and students....

However, with Matthew Doherty, the Executive Director of the US Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) being forced out, and Dr. Robert G. Marbut Jr. replacing him by the Trump Regime, there appears to be a major shift taking place in national Federal government policies to criminalize and punish the unhoused (homeless)!!!...
