If you think a medical crisis can't take down a family just because they have healthcare think again. My story about my family's healthcare crisis and why we should all be feeling the Bern.

Recruiting Indonesian domestic workers abroad might seem like a strange choice, but will likely become a larger trend, as rich countries continue to import low-cost labor from poor countries.
Foreign workers are becoming increasingly important to countries with a small, rich domestic population. These workers are proletarian, just as any other worker, but usually, their labor is exploited even more than native national labor. Sometimes, this is under-the-table exploitation of migrant workers, and sometimes it's written into codified labor laws. This means that as this class of people continues to grow, it will become a more globally, politically important class.
Nothing like rebuking Nazism by occupying a symbol of Nazi history with the enforcers of state violence!
Let's break down the news of Epstein, because it keeps coming: Republican tweets dumb cryptic message, Assad claims Epstein killed himself, Epstein victim talks on his hidden cameras, Prince Andrew covers his ass, and patsy guards face charges.
It's callous to dismiss the legitimate death and destruction wrought by the CIA to make some type of point on twitter
Matt Binder interviewed the most visible, vocal Bolivian coup advocate in the western media. It was not only one of the most interesting podcast episodes I've heard on the Bolivian coup, but the most interesting podcast in general I've heard in awhile (and I listen to podcasts constantly).
Binder eased her into a friendly debate, being very polite, and letting her talk a lot more than you'd expect. But it's a slow burn, and the latter half involves him taking her to task for her employment with the right-wing, imperialist organization Human Rights Watch, the fact that her great grandfather led a previous coup in Bolivia, the fact that her wikipedia page was created and entirely written by one person a couple weeks before the coup, the fact that her nominally left-wing organization has been co-opted by the right-wing, and much more.
