Column: Where are the populist Democrats?
AUSTIN, Texas — It’s futile to hope that the GOP’s gaggle of corporate-hugging, right-wing presidential candidates will seriously address the issue of rising inequality in our land. How about the Democrats? Well, Hillary Clinton has warned that “extreme inequality has...

Column: Remembering the Alamo -- 179 years later
AUSTIN, Texas — Good news from the front: The defenders of the Alamo are standing strong, bravely battling the forces of tyranny! Wait… didn’t the Battle of the Alamo take place in 1836? Yes. But history buffs, preservationists, and aficionados of the absurd will be glad to...

Column: A case of hair-raising hyprocrisy
By JIM HIGHTOWER, OtherWords AUSTIN, Texas — As messed up as it sounds, in the unending struggle for justice, there is such thing as a “positive negative.” This occurs when you win a struggle that you never should have had to deal with in the first place. A prime example...

Column: Ethics training for Congress? Dream on
AUSTIN, Texas — Do you — or does anyone — really need a book of rules and a three-hour briefing to do your job ethically? If you’re a Congress critter, apparently so. For that’s what newly elected lawmakers have just received. Nearly all those newcomers rode to victory...

Column: America's spooks are haunted
AUSTIN, Texas — The spooks are spooked. Not by anything that foreign enemies might do to America — but by what our CIA and its political overseers did to America. By “America,” I mean the essence of our country: our ideals and the moral values we hold up as a beacon...

Column: Obama's legacy may be a tortured one
AUSTIN, Texas — An old bumper sticker offered a stinging response to the Bush-Cheney regime’s enthusiasm for waterboarding: “Impeach Bush,” it urged. “Torture Cheney.” Bush and Cheney escaped unscathed. The Senate has just released an astonishing report detailing...

Column: You just can't make this stuff up
AUSTIN, Texas — Just in the United States, the cosmetics industry pulls in some $70 billion a year in sales of what’s commonly called “makeup.” But lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, and the like aren’t the only kind of makeup the cosmetic giants are peddling. For years,...
