Kearney as the running mate was a choice made by stupid party bosses who think the voters are as stupid as they are: white man from northern Ohio coupled with black man from southern Ohio, and bingo you got all but the redneck votes. Wrong. Maybe the next choice will be actually based on merit and substance instead of melanin and style, but that's not the way party machines run. One big reason We The People are increasingly alienated from politicos in all colors.

50 years ago, W.E.B.DuBois, the Father of Pan-Africanism and forerunner of Mandela as well as another political prisoner, also died in Africa at the age of 95 on the eve of MLK's historic "I Have a Dream speech" in D.C. There was a hardly a word of the passing of this great freedom fighter and prophet in the US press, and he remains either marginalized or largely unknown today in the land of his birth. Another American tragedy which keeps on growing like a terminal cancer. DuBois plowed the ground from which Mandela and MLK reaped a harvest of liberation. Why is there nothing in Ohio named in his honor?

This has nothing to do with justice; it is a pure money grab by the "victim". btw is she married to the man who fathered her child?

If the Golden Rule is found in every religion, then why does not a single society on earth, especially not the "Jewish" state, follow it? Who on earth would want to be treated as Palestinians are in the Occupied Territories or Gaza, the world's largest open air prison?

How many more dysfunctional plans (e.g. HMOs, Obamacare, ad nauseum) created by the insatiable greed of for-profit health insurance companies must we subject our citizens to before we finally adopt that plan that works in every other modern nation: universal health care as a right through a single-payer plan?

A sexual prostitute and her john are both guilty of crimes. Why is it not the same for a political prostitute and her tony (Cafaro)?

There is nothing "natural" about climate change and the devastating disaster this unnatural typhoon caused. Man-made earthquakes, super storms and enormous tsunamis are the results of insatiable greed by the (mother) earth frackers and their ilk.

How many times does this have to happen before we declare a war on the epidemic of misogyny?

How utterly shameful that our great nation, which led the historic effort to create the United Nations, would allow itself to sink to the low level of a racist regime which poisons the President of a nation it cruelly oppresses and illegally occupies. Why not promote our national interests instead of this foreign apartheid state?

Mossad bloody fingerprints all over this latest murder. Whatever happened to the Mossad agents who murdered Alex Odeh? How about the ones caught in NYC on 9/11/01? You don't think they had anything to do with the assassination of JFK since he wouldn't give Israel nukes (something LBJ did right away)? With "friends" like this, who needs enemies?
