Yasha Levine is writing a book, titled Surveillance Valley, that will describe the involvement of Silicon Valley giants such as Google in the federal government’s regime of electronic surveillance against the American people […]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.
There is a place in Michigan called Hell. It’s an unincorporated settlement, meaning that it’s a place without any local government below the level of Putnam Township in Livingston County.

Writers at publications such as the Huffington Post have made a big tizzy about the response, […]
The cost of attending a dinner with Jeb Bush tonight is a $25,000 donation. That’s ten thousand dollars more than a minimum wage worker makes in an entire year. […]
As our writer Jim has documented, the minimum wage in the United States has dropped over the last five years by 75 cents, while the wealth of corporations has skyrocketed, and chief executives are making hundreds of times more than their companies’ average workers are. The facts are plain: Companies are directing the wealth they […]
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein would have us miss this opportunity to lessen the war making of United States, because it is not a complete elimination of authorization for war. […]
Yesterday, U.S. Senator Richard Shelby, a Republican from Alabama, proposed a new amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
The constitutional amendment introduced through S.J. Res. 9 would allow the U.S. Congress to pass a budget with deficit spending only if the United States is at war.
The amendment is being […]
Mike Honda, a Democrat representing the 17th district of California, has introduced H.R. 684 to the House of Representatives. The bill would declare the word “redskins” to be a disparaging term. Under a pre-existing law called the Lanham Act, a disparaging term cannot be trademarked.
This means that the management of the Washington Redskins could […]
