Why Reward Bad Corporate Behavior with More Tax Breaks?

National radio commentator, writer, public speaker, and author of the book, "Swim Against The Current: Even A Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow," Jim Hightower has spent three decades battling the Powers That Be on behalf of the Powers That Ought To Be - consumers, working families, environmentalists, small businesses, and just-plain-folks.

Twice elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Hightower is a modern-day Johnny Appleseed, spreading the message of progressive populism all across the American grassroots.

He broadcasts daily radio commentaries that are carried in more than 150 commercial and public stations and on the web.

It’s an Interesting Life: Government vs People?

It’s an Interesting Life: Government vs People?
Chuck Legge drew his first cartoon at about age 8, and has been trying to get it right ever since. (See Mr Legge's cartoons here, along with a more detailed bio.) He majored in English, Philosophy and Art at Arizona State University. In 1990, he became the editorial cartoonist for the Prescott Sun Newspaper in Prescott, Arizona. Later, he became the editorial cartoonist for Sarah Palin's hometown newspaper the Frontiersman. Of this experience, he says, "My editorial cartoons have a decidedly liberal tilt which makes me quite popular up here. Popular in the same way that a moose with a target shaped birthmark is popular. For this reason the new publisher at the Frontiersman has given me the boot." Mr Legge now owns 4.77 acres in Sutton, Alaska.

Trump on Fox: Tax Returns ‘Creatively Fraudulent,’ Shouldn’t Have to Publish

Trump on Fox: Tax Returns ‘Creatively Fraudulent,’ Shouldn’t Have to Publish
Michael was born in South Africa at the height of the apartheid era He quickly became involved in the underground resistance movement, knew Nelson Mandela and other prominent revolutionaries, some of whom later moved into privileged positions formerly occupied by whites. After several exciting escapes, he was forced to flee the country in disguise. He successfully made his way to the UK and gained his PhD at Cambridge on a university scholarship, He then pursued the dualcareer of college professor and social revolutionary, provoking academic and political mayhemwherever he went. Having thus failed miserably at both politics and education, he now cynically rails like Diogenes at the foibles of mankind in bitter satires and faintly subtly edgy political cartoons. History will, however absolve him. In 2006 he discovered a new Shakespeare play, but it's going to take a new generation to acknowledge it. Check out his website, Editorial and Political Cartoons.
