Comic Relief’s banner advert for the Drop the Debt campaign was ranked third by Forrester Research’s Internet AdWatch Weekly Alert this week in terms of estimated media spend. This is the highest ranking of any charity banner ad to date. The ad, featuring comic character Ali G appeared on various sites including The Guardian. Needless to say, it can reasonably be assumed that at least some of these sites donated ad space for the campaign. 12 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 2 August 2000 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Comic Relief advert Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The reported reaction of many to the CARES Act 2 — which is about to be passed as we write this editorial — is that it’s too little, too late and, sigh, better than nothing. In truth it is the minimum that a ruling-class dominated Congress could pass — just before layoffs, evictions and a spreading virus were about to cast tens of millions more working-class families into poverty, houselessness and capitalist chaos. While the Democratic Party shares the blame for this travesty, Mitch McConnell’s Senate Republicans led the attack on the working class. They did this by sabotaging pandemic relief for the past seven months before announcing an agreement Dec. 20. The number of unemployed grows each week, coupled with increased mass hunger. The poverty rate rivals that following the 2008-09 capitalist collapse. Inequality increases daily with the all-too-usual racist bias, as the rich few grow richer. And families are already being evicted and forced to live on the streets or in COVID-19 susceptible shelters. The looming eviction crisis is so bad that the Dec. 20 New York Times ran a feature story about a Springfield, Mass., sheriff who felt remorse about kicking people out of their homes. He still evicted them.Instead of a comprehensive emergency measure to rescue the population, we get CARES 2. Too little because it runs out quickly. Too late, because a June deal could have stopped much pain. Compare this measly CARES 2 with what should be possible even under 21st century U.S. capitalism.The first CARES Act, passed in April, was a big pandemic relief package — $2.2 trillion (million million) — with many problems. It omitted aid for undocumented workers. For gig workers, applying for unemployment payments had major obstacles. But in the end, it still kept tens of millions of workers’ heads above water. To supplement the CARES Act, in mid-May House Democrats passed the HEROES Act. It allocated $3.4 trillion to bail out small businesses, leave most unemployed workers a livable income and finance cash-starved state, local, territorial and tribal governments — while preventing evictions and delivering COVID-19 medical care. Had it passed the Senate, it would be saving tens of millions of people from poverty. McConnell wouldn’t even let it be discussed. And the Democrats knew that was what to expect from him. After a seven-month delay, the two parties finally agreed on a CARES Act 2 bill. It costs about $900 billion, less than one-third of the HEROES Act. Compared to the first CARES Act, it halves the one-time payment to every documented worker with income under $75,000 from $1,200 to $600. It shrinks the supplemental unemployment insurance payments from $600 to $300 a week and only extends these for another 11 weeks. Too late to save millions of workers already lost. Too little to let people relax.McConnell called the bill a “triumph,” because for the super-rich it avoided massive turmoil at minimum cost. The Democrats called it a “down payment,” because they promised much more to their working class constituents, including Black and Brown people. Schumer and Pelosi imply that the Democrats will fight for more and do it soon, i.e., after Biden takes office. But they have already shown that they will go the extra mile to “compromise” with the Republicans and the ruling class. Republicans hypocritically insisted the budget be balanced. The truth is that they do not need to balance the budget to meet the emergency. This issue is a pretext for imposing inequality.Democrats agreed to pass the total funding budget this same Dec. 20 weekend to keep the federal government running. This included funding the Pentagon budget for nearly three-quarters of a trillion dollars. If Congress really needed to balance the budget, the Pentagon’s a good place to drastically cut costs.Nor did the Democrats insist on restoring taxes on those with the highest incomes, the taxes that the Trump administration cut. In Workers World’s editorial about the relief bills last August, we wrote “Regarding this week’s negotiations, there is a risk the Democrats will agree to a bad compromise for the U.S. working class. That may avoid complete disaster and chaos, but still throw more millions into poverty, hunger and houselessness.”Five months later, the lessons of the bad compromise is that both ruling parties represent the interests of the U.S. ruling class. This is obvious with the Republicans, it has to be underlined regarding the Democrats. It will take a struggle outside and independent of these two parties to make any durable gains for working people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Mark Wilson/Getty Images(PARKLAND, Fla.) — Two parents whose teenage daughters were gunned down in the Parkland, Florida, high school massacre are running for seats on Broward County’s school board, they announced this morning.Lori Alhadeff and Ryan Petty’s daughters, Alyssa Alhadeff and Alaina Petty, both 14 years old, were among the 17 students and staff killed in the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.“My world completely changed” on Valentine’s Day, Petty said today, and now he wants to “represent parents all over the district who deserve to have their children come home to them every afternoon.”Alhadeff added that she doesn’t want “any other parent to go through the pain and anguish I go through every day,” and thinks a position on the school board is the best way she can help implement stronger school safety measures.“I want to do everything possible to make this school system a model that other districts will look and try to replicate,” Alhadeff said.Besides school safety, Petty said he wants to see more transparency and accountability, citing what he called the “confusing matrix of discipline programs” that allow students like suspected school shooter Nikolas Cruz — who had a slew of disciplinary problems during his time in Broward County schools — to fall through the cracks.Alhadeff said discipline programs in the district have “gone from the complete extremes — from over-disciplining kids to not disciplining kids, which we have now.” She said discipline policies must be “revamped” and to “meet somewhere in the middle.”“There is no better way to ensure that the change this school system desperately needs is achieved than to have a seat at the table,” said Alhadeff.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department(NEW YORK) — In never-before-seen interrogation tapes, Jason Dalton, the former Uber driver who pleaded guilty to a 2016 shooting spree in the Kalamazoo, Michigan, area that left six dead and two severely wounded, explained in detail how he claimed the ride-sharing app had “guided” him to kill unsuspecting residents.During the 2016 interrogation, tapes of which ABC News’ 20/20 obtained, Dalton told investigators that he’d been working for Uber for less than a week and had noticed something unusual about the mobile app.“The minute that I logged on, to be honest with you, I don’t know what happened,” he is heard telling investigators in tapes. “I know you guys are going to have a hard time believing this, but it literally took over (my) mind and body.”Watch the full story on 20/20 THIS FRIDAY, Feb. 22, at 9 p.m. on ABC.The shootings occurred on the evening of Feb. 20, 2016, as Dalton continued to transport Uber customers to their destinations.His victims included Tiana Carruthers, 28; Richard Smith, 53, and his 17-year-old son, Tyler Smith; Mary Lou Nye, 62; Mary Jo Nye, 60; Dorothy “Judy” Brown, 74; Barbara Hawthorne, 68; and then-14-year-old Abigail Kopf.Carruthers and Kopf survived the shootings.After Dalton was taken into custody, he was interrogated twice, separately by officers with the Michigan State Police and the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.“He was a white male, salt-and-pepper-colored hair, wearing glasses. … He was short and heavy-set. … Besides that, nothing stood out about him,” Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety detective Cory Ghiringhelli told 20/20.Investigators spoke with him over the course of about four hours overnight and the next day. Dalton showed no emotion in the interrogation room, said detective Bill Moorian of the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.“There was no fluctuation in his voice. He was just sitting there going through the motions that were going on and it was just unusual,” Moorian said. “[I] never had anybody like that before.”Investigators say that during the interrogation, Dalton was initially hesitant to talk with the officers, refusing to answer their questions and pleading the fifth. He did speak to them about his beloved dog, a black German shepherd, and even asked to call his wife, though shortly after she picked up the phone and a quick exchange, he hung up, telling officers he’d only wanted to hear her voice.Finally, however, he began to talk about the Uber app.Dalton claimed that he’d seen the symbol of the Eastern Star when he initially logged into the Uber app, Kalamazoo detective Ghiringhelli said.“That started this whole thing,” Ghiringhelli recounted from the interrogation.“I just tapped it and then there was like a devil head that popped up,” Dalton told investigators in the tapes. “It was some sort of like horned, horned head like a cow head or something. … I pressed that button and that’s where all the problems went after that.”Dalton told detectives that the Uber app had taken control of him.“You can drive over a hundred miles an hour and go through stoplights and nothing will, you can just get places. … When I tapped that, it said that I could say whatever I wanted to. … There would be no repercussion,” he said.Dalton said the app would start off red and then switch to black.“When it’s in that black mode, it literally has control of you,” he said. “It would do a little blink at me.”Ghiringhelli said that according to Dalton, the app gave him an assignment and he had to complete the assignment.“It was like he was a puppet,” Ghiringhelli told 20/20.The phone communicated with him, Dalton told investigators, instructing him on what to do. “One ding” meant “yes” and “two dings” signaled “no.”Dalton also told investigators that when officers pulled him over around midnight, ending the shooting spree, he’d almost reached for his gun but the phone had returned to red. Dalton said that’s why he did not shoot at the officers.“I was no longer being guided. … I mean, that’s not my nature to be that way,” he told detectives. “The minute that the app went from black to red. … I had my presence.”“I wasn’t believing any of it but if it’s something that’s gonna make him talk, you’re not going to shut him down,” Moorian said. “So, we just let him talk about it and we tried to encourage him.”Dalton also told investigators that prior to the shootings, he had not been sleeping and that was “not normal” for him.“I’ve mainly just lied down a few times,” he said. “I’ve been going for a long time. … I think I’ve been going for probably more than 24 hours.”He told them he had no idea how many people he’d shot and said that shootings had been totally random. He also revealed that he remembered shooting a child.Michigan State Police detective Sgt. Kyle Gorham said Dalton’s voice had changed “dramatically” when he spoke of shooting Kopf.“He felt badly for the child and the family of the child but he didn’t express any remorse for anybody else,” Moorian said.Kalamazoo County prosecutor Jeff Getting said that as far as they know, Dalton had no marital trouble, emotional trouble, criminal record or financial problems. Getting said there was also no evidence of Dalton’s being an extremist.On Jan. 7, nearly three years after the shootings, Dalton pleaded guilty to six counts of first-degree premeditated murder and two counts of assault with the intent to commit murder.The decision was a surprise as attorneys were preparing to select a jury for his criminal trial. A judge sentenced him on Feb. 5 to life in prison without the possibility of a parole.When reaching out to Uber for comment, a representative referred 20/20 to a 2016 call with reporters about the Kalamazoo incident, during which Uber’s then-chief security officer, Joe Sullivan said, in part, “I want to reiterate how devastated we are by these murders, and that our thoughts are with the victims’ families and the broader community in Kalamazoo. As the local police have made clear, the perpetrator had no criminal record, and if there’s nothing on someone’s record, then no background check is going to raise a flag. As this case has shown, past behavior may not accurately predict how people will behave in the future. This is where technology can help ensure safety before, during and after a ride in ways that was not possible a decade ago.”“We’re deeply committed to the safety of everyone on our platform, as well as the communities we serve, and we have a clear policy that prohibits having firearms in the vehicle,” he added.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
