Column: The millionaires' Congress vs. the American people
By JIM HIGHTOWER, OtherWords AUSTIN, Texas — The rich truly are different from you and me — they tend to become Congress critters. You don’t find many plumbers, mine workers, dirt farmers, Walmart associates, beauty parlor operators, taxi drivers or other “get-the-job-done”...

Column: Report proves big brother blows it
By JIM HIGHTOWER, OtherWords President Barack Obama’s support for the NSA’s domestic spying program prompted a critic to say: “Given the unique power of the state, it is not enough for leaders to say: ‘Trust us, we won’t abuse the data we collect.’” Oh wait, that...

Column: Taxpayer's crime pays for corporate crime
By Jim Hightower, OtherWords AUSTIN, Texas — Sometimes, a news story can be so crammed with irony that it boggles the mind. Consider just the headline on one such story that ran recently in my town’s daily paper: “Man gets 10 years for defrauding banks.” That just screams...
