"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Just a reminder: As President, Obama reversed his campaign rhetoric opposing new offshore drilling by saying, "In the short term, as we transition to cleaner energy sources, we'll have to make tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development in ways that protect communities and coastlines."
Clearly, Tony Hayward is not the only guy who wants to get his life back. Wouldn’t we all love to get back the life of clean oceans and an abundant, healthy, living planet?
Off with their heads.
Mein Gott! it is really hard to post even one comment. Why don't you make things easier?
Why don't Thom and Bernie just come out and say we are living under a form of fascism? The G20 meeting is in Toronto, and according to the Amy Goodman show and people she interviewed, there is a strong fence surrounding the "bigwigs" and 20,000 policemen or something like that. No one in main media covered the social forum in Detroit. In Toronto, they're using sound machines on protesters.

Good Morning Father,
What ever happened to her "tell all" book "I slept with the President", detailing how they both would frequently fall asleep in Cabinet meetings??
I cried when Obama was elected- out of joy and relief. No, I am not ashamed of those emotions- for, at the time, it was like I was let out of a political prison as I felt this country was sinking deeper and deeper into a strange, repressive tyranny.
No, I am not ashamed- and I would vote for Obama again, I suppose- if the circumstances were capable of being replayed- but not for the same reasons. It would be to vote for, quoting Russell Crowe as Captain Jack Aubrey- to vote for 'the lesser of two weevils.'
Didn't John Lott hide behind a pseudonym of Mary Rosh? Reason.com ran an article on this in May 2003 as well as on Lott's questionable studies
This weeks Supreme Court decision to lift the ban on Monsanto’s GMO round Up Ready Alfalfa hands Monsanto the license to own yet one more piece of the food chain.
If Obama declares a national emergency can he over-ride the federal ruling to lift the ban? If not, is there anything else he can do?
