Americans have to pay a small fortune for a college degree these days. But in Germany, tuition is free - even for Americans! Not only is education not free in the US, but it is more expensive than ever - and loan interest rates are far too high.

NYPD is under investigation for a rash of incidents where excessive force was used. But one of the latest - a pin-down of a pregnant woman - puts an innocent unborn child at risk. She was thrown, belly-down onto the street, her hands held behind her.

There are a $billion reasons for the NFL to continue its culture of violence. But the arguments for change are about saving lives. NFL's Goodell has denied playing football causes brain disease, domestic violence & the connection between the two.

Over 100 thousand have asked Walmart to label GMO corn in the past, and it still won't commit. Now that it's on the market and we know it's classified as a pesticide, there's no more waiting. Either Walmart rejects the corn, labels it or we don't buy any

The Ohio Supreme Court, with only Justice O'Donnell dissenting, has just Ok'd strip mining on part of a state-owned wildlife area. Aside from the land surface destruction this would cause, strip mining is the last thing Ohio needs right now.

Walmart is now requiring its sales associates to wear uniforms. And Walmart stands to make millions selling them to its own employees, who get a measly 10% discount. But Walmart isn't calling them uniforms so it can get around not paying for them.
