Police want to fight. It's a cold, cold night. The people stand up to a jeering cop, "you're breaking my heart", he points to the one he will be arresting when he gets his chance -- posse comitatus. Indefinite detention, it's a time of war. But the war is over just in time for it to really begin. Coordinated attacks, as it all slips back into the sands of time. Another grand defeat, now Iraq is Iran, majority rule, so we gather on a cold, cold night.

Is The Passed Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (retroactive) To Detain Americans?
The Defense Authorization Act of 2012) appears more threatening to Americans than Hitler's (1933 DISCRIMINATORY LAWS. Hitler's laws set time limits that Germans could be incarcerated for e.g., Serious Disturbance of the Peace and Rioting. But McCain's bill broadly mandates holding Americans indefinitely in Military Custody for being a Combatant or Belligerent.

Their Priorities
With election season upon us it's very easy to see the impact special interests have on our nation's politicians. Elected leaders in Washington make this fact especially obvious to see, though not purposefully. At this point, not only is it visible in the president, but after so many debates it is starting to become evident on the part of Republicans. Money and power guides not just who they are polite to, but also what promises they make and the flip flops they make while still campaigning even. One moment they may say something leading voters to believe they stand firmly against an issue, and later on they may soften their rhetoric on the issue or information emerges either contradicting the initial statement or placing what they said in a hypocritical light.

Reform vs. Revolution Within Occupy
Many Occupiers have expressed a valid concern over the Obama campaign attempting to hijack the Occupy movement. To avoid this pitfall some Occupiers advocate more radical methods, ideas and strategies. But sometimes these tactics create new problems. While swerving safely left of the Democrats' grasp, some Occupiers have overreached and exited the orbit of most working people, who would otherwise naturally gravitate to the Occupy movement. Some Occupiers dismiss this new worry, viewing the Occupy movement as an unstoppable social movement.

This raises the question: is Occupy a real social movement or one still struggling to be born? The answer to this question helps determine what strategy the Occupy movement should take, what demands it should fight for and the level of confrontation of its actions. If you believe that the Occupy movement is still struggling for a mass base, as this writer does, then you'll likely agree that Occupy needs to immediately focus on broadening its base and wage militant struggles for demands that will bring in the wider working class community.

Labor’s Choice in 2012
2011 has been an historic year in the U.S. From last winter's explosion of mass protests in response to the attacks against public workers' unions, especially in Madison, Wisconsin, to the even more widespread Occupy Wall Street Movement (OWSM), there have been few years in the past decades that demonstrate so clearly the fighting spirit of workers in America when they are forced to defend themselves from corporate attacks. For those who have been working for a change in this country's political direction, 2011 has rewarded our efforts with hope. For those who have been enduring the conditions of the Great Recession in isolation, 2011 has awoken them to realize that they are not alone, and that there is strength and power in unity.

Class War Welfare Minister Signora Fornero and unelected Italian leader Mario Monti announce austerity "sacrifice," "shared" among Italy's elderly, who will see their pensions cut. Workers may not retire until age 66 and will have to pay longer to get the same benefits. The wealthy were spared any tax increase whatsoever. To bankers like Monti, misery imposed on the poor is laughable, as is sympathy for the victims.

Understanding The History And Purpose Of FOX News
November 26, 2011

You'd think a thing like FOX couldn't happen in the United States. Although they're free to be crazy and free to support the Republican Party, you'd think Americans would be too smart to fall for the made-up outrages, dishonest reporting and relentless appeal to our meaner nature. Unfortunately, many Americans are not as smart as we used to assume: a huge swath of Americans (especially elderly white Southerners) believe FOX is just another news media outlet. They aren't.

Labor Must Choose Between Occupy and the Democrats
The Occupy Movement couldn't have come along at a worse time, from the viewpoint of the Democrats. Election season is just getting started and Occupy has thrown a giant wrench into the political machinery. Some labor leaders too are sensing "politics as usual" shifting under their feet; the "get out the vote" for the Democrats may elicit blank stares from the rank and file.

Occupy has the potential to create earthquakes within the labor movement and labor's relationship to the Democrats, if it approaches the subject intelligently. This seismic shift could permanently change politics in the United States, much for the better.

So while general prices have only doubled, college tuition is now five times more expensive. The embedded chart presents the same problem with additional data. The student loan industry is not helping students to afford these price increases, because the student loan industry is itself the cause of skyrocketing tuition increases.
