For many, the choice is not between capitalism or socialism but between HBO or Showtime. Socialisme ou barbarie had its time. Today it should be rendered as socialism or consumerism. The left needs to articulate a theory of needs in the age of extinction.
I predicted Jacobin magazine would trash a trade deal Sherrod Brown (solid labor cred) advocates.
Trump is the first about-to-be-impeached President to attend the Navy-Army game.

Both claim to be anti-Establishment.

For the speakers and attendees of CPAC, the sky is always falling. It’s curious that the sky always only lands on them.
Ms Kirchner made an Argentinian judge an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Clint Eastwood turned Mr Kyle into the new Daniel Boone. Or Josey Wales. Which proves Americans are gullible, like the audience at Le Gamaar.
Mr Belichick affirms the old adage: if his lips are moving, he’s lying.
