SOTU Anticipation

President Obama's Inequality Story...
by Dean Baker - January 27, 2014

The advance word is that inequality is going to be the central theme in President Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday.  That’s certainly good news, since it is a huge problem.  The question is whether President Obama is prepared to talk about inequality in a way that gets to the core of the problem as opposed to just clipping away at the edges.

It’s a safe bet that we will see the latter.  . . .

As always with Truthout.org, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.

Have you noticed how many articles I link from Truthout.org?
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.

And like Alternet, Truthdig, Commondreams, et al, the "Comments" section is
quite often as enlightening as the article’s themselves, sometimes even more so.
