Biden is labeled a moderate. But his agenda is far more liberal than Hillary Clinton’s.

    An alternate title for this could be “Greedy Capitalism Meets Classical Music”. Really great read to learn the ugly realities of modern orchestras.

    Biden is labelled a moderate. But his agenda is far more liberal than Hillary Clinton’s.
    A pitiful attempt to puff up Biden. The authors would have been hard pressed to find a lower Comparison Bar than Hillary Clinton.

    Naughty by NATO
    Nice background information is here in abundance. When a bunch of “North Atlantic” nations go to war in landlocked Afghanistan, or invite the North Pacific nation of Japan to join them, matters have gotten out of hand.

    Facing Restrictions At Home, Droves Of Desperate Women Seek Abortions Out Of State
    This sort of article is infuriating to me. Holier Than Thou yammerheads who don’t have a clue. They’re really just devout and unthinking puppets.
    When evangelicals were pro-choice and the NRA was pro-gun control: A history of hypocrisy
    The link author mentions how evangelicals have opposed abortion for a shorter time than Happy Meals have been around. Anybody who cares to do so can verify this is true. Like sheep, they were led to their new beliefs by fanatics representing the Vatican. (American Catholics are perfectly sensible, but their upper tier leaders are nuts, and most of them know that far better than I do.) My own contribution to this subject is an upload:
    Mandatory Motherhood
    Rich folks are happy to keep peasants at each other’s throats – they can always buy tickets to fly overseas when their women want an abortion. The topic is a really useful distraction for them.

    Taking the credit: can universities tackle academic fraud?
    I believe the situation was even worse in the past. A young woman researcher (Jocelyn Bell) discovered Pulsars, and her PhD supervisor received a Nobel prize. She is still alive and kicking and has been belatedly honored, but that just wasn’t right.

    The Lost Promise of Reconstruction
    Good stuff from the NYT, and evidence even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then.

    The Decommodified Life
    Definitely food for thought here. Learning about the situation in India was a shocker to me.
    defecation in the open

    US extracted top spy from inside Russia in 2017
    Definitely a deceptive article. IMO CNN is at least as dishonest as Fox. I’m out of links, but google this headline: “Did Trump’s misconduct help trigger a risky Russian spy extraction? Media outlets disagree.” When even the Warmongering Post waffles, that tells me Obama was probably the main reason for the spy ‘extraction’.
