A building collapsed into an open store despite several complaints to the city and the site that something was wrong, such as no hardhats and a wall still standing over an open store.
Philadelphia hasn't had a fearless, helping the little-guy oriented, investigator, since Mumia abu Jamal vividly exposed police abuse and similar crimes against the poor.
One person was arrested when a wall fell into the Salvation Army store killing six. Sean Benschop was the crane operator, who was blamed for the disaster, and who no one in the media talked in jail to get his side of the story. He was a self-employed licensed city contractor with his wife as the bookkeeper. She was also the bookkeeper for Griffin Cambell Construction, the demolition firm that finagled getting Sean listed as a city contractor. Sean was overjoyed that he was finally overcoming his handicap of being an ex-con with a marijuana background because of his stingy boss's unexpected gift.

Today people are blaming Hilary for Benghazi attack
No one wants to blame a dead Ambassador, Chris Stevens, for being persistently careless.

The Libyan and Syrian wars have demonstrated categorically the very clear commitment of the progressive Western intellectual managerial class to the fundamental neocolonial premises of their NATO governments. In that context, Patrick Cockburn's article constitutes a masterpiece of evasion. Its publication in numerous progressive alternative media outlets indicates the insidious osmosis between those media and the corporate mainstream, one which has almost entirely destroyed politically effective Western anti-imperialist consciousness.

Just a reminder here that the Grand Bargain was not conceived as a "deal" between the Republicans and Democrats to cut the "entitlements" in exchange for some "revenue." That's the "Balanced Approach" that was set forth by the President in the 2012 campaign.

As I’ve said, I don’t think that the healthcare.gov clusterfuck means that Obamacare is doomed. I assume it’ll be fixed eventually, and ultimately will be the least of the program’s problems. But, you know, I knew people in HHS who assured me (awhile ago) that Sebelius was on top of implementation, that competent management was her key skill.

A new media is in the making. Springing from a spirit of rebellion, from everywhere, anywhere and nowhere.
A quality media, because being an activist does not mean giving up being a journalist.
An independent media, because being a journalist does not mean giving up being a revolutionary
A creative and surprising media, because being reliable does not mean being boring.

In just one week the main part of Obamacare will begin to kick in. This is the state level exchanges that will allow the uninsured to be covered. Beginning on October 1, people will be able to sign up to get insurance in their state regardless of their health.

Today, September 17, marks the second anniversary of the Occupy movement. When that movement is mentioned at all in Washington, which is rarely, the tone is dismissive. It didn’t have coherent goals, someone may say. The movement needed an electoral strategy, someone else will add. No wonder it didn’t last.
That’s getting it backwards. The Occupy movement wasn’t the foundation for change; it was the reflection of a deeper desire for it. It was the effect, not the cause, and it won’t disappear because of the wishful thinking of a few.
