A revolution looks different on the streets you once walked

paul at Paying attention - 2 hours ago
My latest Tyee column People are dying on the streets I walked to work in Managua just two years ago. Masaya, a smaller town about an hour away by bus, is a battlefield. The streets of Leon, where we also lived, were filled with improvised barriers as neighbours united to keep out police and government supporters.

And it’s also surreal that despite some 285 deaths and 10 weeks of fighting, the rest of the worl... more »

A powerful economic incentive continues to drive the nuclear arms race.

"America’s Hidden War"

*"America’s Hidden War"* by Bill Bonner POITOU, FRANCE – "No big movement in the stock market yesterday. In politics, the Senate passed an $800 billion boondoggle for farmers. The feds promised to cover crop insurance costs and pay farmers if their harvests come in short. And Donald Trump ballyhooed a new factory lured to Wisconsin at a cost to the state of $230,000 per job. At that price, the state must lose money on every new job; maybe it can make it up on volume. We once set up an office in a depressed area of Ireland. All we got was about $12,000 in tax abatements per job. Obv... more »

*I would actually vote "Stay" in a Czechout referendum if it took place now* The EU summit was primarily dedicated to the immigration to Europe – which was a significant trend that was somewhat bizarrely classified under the "asylum policies" of Europe (although those should only deal with a small number of individuals). And I think that the most important outcome is that Angela Merkel and her comrades have surrendered and abandoned the plans to force migrants on individual European countries, using the mechanism of the permanent quotas, and to force the migrants to go to arbitrari... more »

By James Quintero Austin is in the throes of a government-induced affordability crisis and city council seems determined to make things worse. Trying to solve Austin’s affordability problem by going further into debt is the absolute wrong approach. That’s especially true given that the city’s debt already totals $9.8 billion and adding another $925 million in new debt will only push taxes higher for most Austin homeowners and businesses.

On the June 21 episode of Preet Bharara’s podcast, “Stay Tuned with Preet,” a listener called in to ask about the legal meaning of the word “collusion.” Bharara and his two guests were quick to set the record straight; the term collusion, despite it frequent use, has no actual legal definition outside of antitrust law. Instead, Bharara raised a different question for his guests: If collusion has no legal meaning in the context of the Russia investigation, then “why has the word … captured everyone’s attention?” What’s more, how did a word with no legal relevance to the case becom... more »
