GOP Tax Agenda Is a Grave Threat to People in Poverty
John Bouman: Just as the season of giving takes hold, congressional Republicans are advancing tax legislation at a breakneck pace that would deliver massive giveaways to the ultra-rich at the expense of everyone else. ... After driving up the federal deficit by some $1.5 trillion dollars over the next decade to pay for those tax cuts to the super-wealthy, lawmakers will likely use these shortfalls as pretext to slash programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and food and housing assistance — just as congressional Republicans voted to do earlier this year. ... The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has already warned lawmakers that their tax plan could trigger an automatic $25 billion cut to Medicare in 2018 alone... Visit Website ]

Journalists Who Want Online Privacy Need To Read This Guide
Chris Paulus: It is imperative that journalists protect themselves as they continue to pursue their important work in the face of growing government control. That is why Michael Dagan, a former deputy editor of the Israeli newspaper Haaertz, and Ariel Hochstadt, a former security expert as well as a marketing expert for Google, have created a guide, Online Privacy for Journalists, to help journalists protect both themselves and their sources. ...

July 4, 2012 - March to End Illegal Surveillance - Photos
A Very, very bright and warm day in Denver for the gathering to Restore the Fourth Amendment on the Fourth. Starting with a small group at noon, the crowd continued to increase at the Capitol Building until about 100-150 people took part in the march down the 16th street Mall. (Unfortunately an incident with a policeman caused a woman to be arrested and later another man was arrested also. Both have been released on bail.)

May Day in Denver 2013 - Photos
Oh My God - not a typical spring day - more like a bad winter dream - cold, wet, snow. Perhaps the theme should have been "Global Warming" or "Mother Nature Strikes Back". But it was - Labor Call To Path to Citizenship, rally and march in support of comprehensive, common sense, immigration reform.

Occupy Denver - Stop The Empire - Protest The Presidential Debate!
A pleasant Autumn night in McWilliams Park, the staging area for Occupy Denver, the leaves gently falling as well as the temperatures and the light ebbing away, hopefully along with the Empire. It was a gathering together of a motley crew of activists, Green Party for President Jill Stein and her VP Cheri Honkala, the rock band Pressure Point (quite good), Chicken Man in costume, local citizens, news people, puppets (or as some would say news people puppets)...

Mild weather and a noon hour provided a good turn out of hard core occupiers as well as a small contingent of police across the street by the Brown Palace hotel.

August 11, 2012 - Occupy Denver Photos
A mildly hot Saturday in downtown Denver with few protestors but a previous chalking on the sidewalk on Colfax shows the movement is still alive and kicking! And at long last the barrier fences are down so City Center Park is really open again! Meanwhile at the amphitheater - a music festival with food, beer and lively music. Good Vibrations for the day.

May Day (May 1, 2012) - Occupy Denver Photos
A beautiful warm and sunny day in Civic Center Park for the Occupy May Day celebration. Partly a "Be-In" and partly a "Protest" and "Teach-In" - this was mostly a groovy gathering of organizations and like minded people from all strata of society. The Occupy movement had called for a general strike on May Day to point out the importance of the 99% - the workers who make it work - and many were obviously heeding the call.
