Helen Thomas National Treasure
Has some advice for President Obama.

Remember, the generals work for you. Think about how Harry Truman once proved the point. He had just fired Gen. Douglas MacArthur for publicly disagreeing with his policy against expanding the Korean War into China.

Truman elaborated on the decision for reporters in his typically blunt fashion:

"I fired him because he wouldn't respect the authority of the president. I didn't fire him because he was a dumb son-of-a-bitch, although he was, but that's not against the law for generals. If it was, half to three-quarters of them would be in jail."

We do not need war. We need health care!

Rotted Fruit
Robert Borosage.
Recovery requires fundamental reform of America's economic strategy. The old shibboleths of the conservative era—shrink government, cut top-end taxes, free multinationals to move jobs abroad, deregulate finance, wage war on labor unions, declare that trade deficits don't matter —have failed ignominiously. They must be discarded, like yesterday's rotted fruit.

Where will the jobs come from?
