Yet, instead, .. for the next 2 1/2 years,...

It's time for there to be a revolution in America, one that will turn our government back over to the people, one that will rid our government of corporate puppets and race-baiting con-artists. I really don't know what it is going to take for the American people to see that our politicians and their being under the undue influence of corporate American and diabolical billionaires is not going to do anything but run our government, economy and our Constitution and Civil Rights further into...

When are people going to figure out that science and technology are more important than politics and economics? This ain't 1900 anymore and we ain't in Kansas, The Wizard of Oz has taken over. In 1900 there were 8,000 cars in this country. In 1995 there were...

But we have kids spend hours doing mathematics which does not seem to have anything to do with anything. But no, we must continue the Greek traditions.

"But we have kids spend hours doing mathematics which does not seem to have anything to do with anything." This is so true. Most teachers can't even tell their students why they need to know any mathmatics beyond arithmetic or relatate it to anything tangible.

Chomsky is so known and "in demand" for his political activism and views people don't know that his formal training and work is in linguistics. The lesson for Black people is that what Chomsky represents are viewpoints that do NOT fit into the narrow American framing of social issues. There's video of Chomsky discussing the...

What I am astonished about right now is that no one is...
