The Bush Tax Cuts & Class Division in America

Written by David May Friday, 15 July 2005
Titanic sums of money - the taxes paid in mostly by the working class - have been spent by the Bush Administration primarily on two things: the continuing slaughter in Iraq and the further enrichment of the top 10 percent of Americans. Millions of working people in the United States continue to worry about whether or not they will have a job two months from now or even next week. And how does the ‘compassionate conservative’ in the White House soothe the nation’s anxiety? By handing out billions of dollars to the modern-day robber barons of Capital.

War, Occupation, Torture, Apologies

Written by Shane Jones Thursday, 14 July 2005
U.S. Senator Dick Durbin's atypically frank condemnation of the treatment of U.S. prisoners around the world cause a storm of criticism.

Jobless recovery for the U.S. economy

Written by Socialist Appeal Editorial Board Wednesday, 15 June 2005
Over the past couple of years the U.S. economy has gained some momentum and avoided slipping back into recession, but this was based on the increased squeezing of the U.S. and world working class, not job growth or significant investment in productive capacity.
