Hiking taxes on the rich really does raise more money and help the economy (but doesn't cut inequality)
November 4, 2016, Michael Hiltzik, LA Times
Among the frequently-heard arguments against raising taxes on the rich is that they’ll find ways of avoiding the increase, so it won’t bring in much additional income. A side argument is that these so-called job creators will be so spavined by the additional burden that they’ll stop playing their role as drivers of economic growth, so everyone will suffer.

Editorial: Say no to the Dakota Access Pipeline
November 3, 2016, Editorial Board, LA Times
The U.S. government’s relationship with Native American tribes has been long, often duplicitous, and generally one-sided — which has cast a shadow of history over the weeks-long showdown in North Dakota over the 1,170-mile, $3.7-billion Dakota Access Pipeline. In recent months, protesters from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, as well as their supporters from around the country, have been confronted by private security forces with trained dogs, as well as police and National Guard troops. More than 400 people have been arrested amid allegations of abuse by law enforcement officers and counter-allegations of violence by protesters, who have been accused of heaving Molotov cocktails and torching cars. One report said a female protester fired three gunshots. And the protests are spreading; a dozen people were arrested in San Francisco on Monday.
