And every year, most of those stories turn out to be false -- not that it ever deters the talking heads from telling them. Well, this year there is a real "War on Christmas"; and it's not being waged by the ACLU or the Democratic Party. This year, the Republicans are playing Scrooge, robbing 1.3 million people across America of desperately needed unemployment benefits right in the middle of the holiday season -- and setting the stage for robbing millions more of the same benefits later. Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi stood up for the unemployed in a big way, saying...

I am oddly proud that my work is uncompensated in this money-made country. That's right, the hundred or so Peace Exchange Bulletin articles from the past year - unpaid labor. The dozens of The Nation and Huffington Post pieces - also unpaid. An opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times or The Guardian - a couple of hundred bucks towards my kid's education and music classes. Two years' work on a book - maybe a thousand bucks a month, with no money for advertisements and promotion. You get the picture, because many of you are in the same boat or an even leakier one....
