Jim Hightower's Common Sense
Big Oil's frigging frackers are wrapping their shameless profiteering in our flag. In shale fields across the country, you'll see fracking rigs festooned with Old Glory, and they even paint some of their rigs red, white, and blue. This ostentatious patriotic pose is part and parcel of the... Mothers the world over have told their children a zillion times: "Stop playing with your food!"

The new darling of tea party Republicans got elected last year in part by stoking right-wing fear that the United Nations is planning to seize America's golf course... It's been nearly 50 years since poverty in America was a front-burner issue on our nation's political agenda � and it's time to move it up again. Even as those at the top of our society have grown fabulously richer in the past decade,Andrew Luck T shirts, those in the economic middle have seen incomes stagnat... Anyone who says that America has lost its innovative edge in technology and manufacturing has not chugged a can of Bud recently. The buzz is back, baby! Well, actually, Budweiser is no longer American. It's now a Belgian outfit, owned by InBev, the world's largest maker of suds. But picky... Harrell's hardware, located near my home in Austin, Texas, is the opposite of a big-box chain store. It's an un-chained, small-box store with a knowledgeable staff willing to help customers figure out how to do most any project. Harrell's slogan is: "Together, we can do it yourself." I bo...
