          June 29, 2017
    
          President Donald Trump ignored important intelligence reports when he decided to attack Syria after he saw pictures of dying children. Seymour M. Hersh investigated the case of the alleged Sarin gas attack.

          The Senate GOP Isn’t Fixing Health Care. It’s Waging Class War
    
          June 29, 2017
    
          The Senate’s “Better Care Reconciliation Act” follows the regressive contours of the House bill: It’s a tax cut for the rich paid for by gouging coverage for the poor and the elderly.

           Still on White Privilege
    
          June 29, 2017
    
          I often wonder whether even those who acknowledge the phenomenon of white privilege and work assiduously to obviate its impact on, specifically, black lives, know how widespread is its impact and how enmeshed it is in the very framework of life in this country.

          SCOPE Joins the STAND LA Coalition: Fight to End Oil Drilling in Los Angeles
    
          June 29, 2017
    
          Throughout its history, the fossil fuel industry has played a major role in the development of the City of Los Angeles.  Due to over-development and a history of poor, often racialized, land use decisions, many drilling sites are located in communities with a higher percentage of residents of color, and high rates of poverty, unemployment, and linguistic isolation.

          Whole Foods Market, Amazon and Inhospitable Hospitality
    
          June 29, 2017
    
          With Amazon's purchase of Whole Foods, everything about the company is changing.  But there remains one constant: Whole Foods still intends to be “100 percent union-free”.  The hostility to worker rights that the two companies share is the future they envision for the entire hospitality industry.
