Noam Chomsky on Ron Paul’s 9/11 Theories: “Uncontroversial”

Noam Chomsky on Ron Paul’s 9/11 Theories: “What He Said Is Completely Uncontroversial”

DemocracyNow.org – During the most recent Republican presidential debate on Monday, September 12th, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas drew boos and jeers from the crowd and his fellow debaters for his views on the roots of 9/11 attacks. Dr. Paul criticized U.S. foreign policy as the catalyst stating, “we’re under great threat because we occupy so many countries…

We have to be honest with ourselves. What would we do if another country, say China, did to us what we do to all those countries over there?” For more, Democracy Now! spoke with Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Noam Chomsky. Dr. Chomsky responded to Dr. Paul’s comments by reciting the history of antagonism to US policy, concluding: “I think what he said is completely uncontroversial. You can read it in government documents.”

Noam Chomsky on the US Economic Crisis

Noam Chomsky on US Economic Crisis: Joblessness, Excessive Military Spending and Healthcare

DemocracyNow.org – President Obama sent his new jobs proposal to Congress on Monday with a plan to pay for the $447 billion package by raising taxes on the wealthy. Democracy Now! interviews MIT Professor Emeritus Noam Chomsky, who says “huge military spending, a very low taxes by the rich [and corporations] … those are problems, fundamental problems that have to be dealt with if there is going to be anything like successful economic and social development in the United States.”

As Republican presidential candidate, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, calls Social Security a “ponzi scheme,” and Democrats buy into the narrative that the program is in crisis, Chomsky notes that, “To worry about a possible problem 30 years from now, which can incidentally be fixed with a little bit of tampering here and there, as was done in 1983, to worry about that makes absolutely no sense unless you’re trying to destroy the program.”

US Census reveals growing poverty in the USA

US Census reveals growing poverty in the USA

Published: Wednesday 14 September 2011
More people are poor in America than at any time since the Census Bureau began tracking data on poverty 52 years ago.

Newly published U.S. Census Bureau findings on poverty in the United States shows that the number of poor increased to record highs in 2010, with 1 in 6 Americans being considered poor, and 1 in 5 U.S. Children living in poverty. According to the Census, US Blacks and Hispanics accounted for 54% of the poor with whites at 9.9% and Asians, 12.1%.

Employer provided health benefits also declined, and now under 50 million Americans have health insurance provided by their employers. Democracy Now interviews with Heidi Shierholz, labor economist at the Economic Policy Institute.
