Our Wealth-Driven Economy

“America, The Beautiful” Ain’t So Pretty Any More

Once upon a time in America, there was a large working middle class and competition was good — but that was then, and this is now.

I’ve been writing about the brutal American economy for the past seven years, since the Bush administration’s special interest budget and political power-plays began forcing more Americans to and below the poverty level.

Palin accepted tainted donations

Gov. Sarah Palin swept into office as an avowed outsider, a claim that helped her land the GOP vice presidential nomination.

The woman touted by Republican nominee John McCain as a reformer said late Thursday that she will donate to charity more than $1,000 in campaign contributions from two Alaska politicians implicated in a sprawling federal corruption probe. Palin is also giving back $1,000 from the wife of one of the men.

First debate? Don’t count on it

The first presidential debate between Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama remained in doubt Friday, the very day it was to be held, embroiled in the same partisan divisions that were holding up a Wall Street bailout plan.

Obama said he intended to travel to the University of Mississippi in Oxford, where the debate had long been scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. EDT. McCain, who had proposed delaying the contest so the two presidential hopefuls could help negotiate an economic rescue plan, wouldn’t commit.
