FYI: Nixon’s health care plan 1974

Compare and contrast Nixon's plan to the ones the Republican ghouls in Congress are trying to enact. It is interesting to note that although his plan was similar to Obamacare, Democrats refused to help enact it. Led by Ted Kennedy, they were insisting on a payroll tax-funded national insurance plan. Rather than compromise and look to enact their…

Time to sue the anti-GMO bastards

Anti-GMO groups like USTRK and the Organic Consumers Association have long been getting away with libel, slander and defamation of honest scientists.  It's time to fight back.

Trump’s hero and mentor: the demonic Roy Cohn

  The recent untimely death of investigative reporter Wayne Barrett left me sad. He was one of my NYC journalistic heroes. He was a giant and his dogged determination led him to expose the fraud and criminal that Trump is.  But no one paid attention.
