Hyatt Union Square New York


China moment? We have nothing at stake in Cuba thanks, in part, to Nixon's China moment meant to increase pressure on the Soviet Union's military and economy...which, again in part, resulted its collapse.

What exactly do we have to gain right now by bolstering the Cuban government. Why is the New York Times on a campaign on this mater - Three editorials in one month. Can't they find anything better to write about?

I agree, Scott. I’m not a fan of Hillary Clinton either. Anyone who voted for the Iraq war should be disqualified from becoming the Democratic nominee. Clinton is a hawk. As Secretary of State, she pushed for intervention in Libya and Syria, she supports the use of drones, and she favored approving the Keystone pipeline. Goldman Sachs recently paid her $400,000 for two speeches. Bill Clinton comes with his baggage: NAFTA, the repeal of Glass-Steagall, and the deregulation of derivatives which set the stage for the economic collapse of 2008.

I have my doubts about Elizabeth Warren. She joined the other Democratic women in the Senate by signing a letter urging Clinton to run in 2016.

Sen. Warren voted to confirm Jack Lew as Treasury Secretary. Matt Taibbi and William Black told Amy Goodman of Democracy Now that Lew is pro-bank, and supports austerity and deregulation. She was one of 34 Democratic senators who voted to repeal a small tax on medical devices in the Affordable Care Act. The revenue from the tax was slated to be used to cover the uninsured.

Warren voted to confirm Penny Pritzker as head of the Commerce Department. The vote was 97-1, Bernie Sanders was the lone dissenter. Pritzker has served on the board of Hyatt, one of the most anti-union hotel chains in the country. Last week, Warren voted to confirm three of the President's nominees to the Fed. Sanders voted against all three nominees, two of whom have Wall Street ties and the third is a corporate consultant.

Drovall, in what sense is Scotland's choosing to remain part of the Union a choice to "remain ruled"? It has its own legislature, executive and judiciary and also participates in all UK national elections. Scotland's status within the UK is analogous to the State of New York's status within the US.

Very wealthy people such as Mr. Bittman can afford to perpetuate the myth that bargains can be found in farmers markets, if you look hard enough, or have a relationship with the farmer, or go early, or buy in-season or whatever.

I can only speak of those markets in NYC, specifically Union Square, which now is absurdly expensive.

I use to shop there every weekend until I realize the premium was too much, i.e. the farmers got greedy and now, if I'm in the neighborhood I'll check it out for a treat, but definitely not to feed myself.
