Police to stop the violence on peaceful protesters

The police need to know no orders are valid if imoral. I keep thinking of history where military personel were put on trial for violence against unarmed non-violent people. These police need to not follow order to clear a park full of campers that trying to get the goverrnment to hear their voice. The police in Albany did not clear the protesters. The police need to know that they are commiting crimes against the constitution and the rights that many people have given the lives to defend. the police that do violence against peaceful protesters are not heroes.

American authorities use Deadly Force against American Citizens protesting inequality.

My best wishes go out to Scott Olson.

Fixing the budget

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling: "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.

It's the Viet Nam Protest thing all over again.

Eve of Destruction cover done in honor of those brave folks out in the streets throughout our country. Welcome to the long awaited revolution.

Peter Ferrara is clueless

Thom is absolutely correct that the origin of the problem was the CDS's

Peter Ferrara

Every time I listen to that rude, immature child talk (and continue to talk over Thom...and then accuse Thom of talking over him), I want to throw up.

I give Thom a lot of credit for giving that idiot a forum, but he gets out-shouted by the Bevis-sounding fool time and time again. He gets called names by the obfuscating fool and rises above Ferrara's childish attacks, trying to explain his points based on facts. But he's just wasting his time. Ferrara is clearly a sociopath and there is simply no reasoning will some sociopaths.

Thom....please stop giving that moron a forum.

Atheism

Hi,

While in college in the early 70's, in response to the Militant Atheists, some friends started a group called The Apothetic Agnostics who's motto was "You don't know anything, and we don't care."

"Government" and "Free market" as tautologies...

Over and over instruments of power in social relationships try to make us believe that some abstraction they call "free market" can work without some form of instrument, which they pretend to be against, called government.

If one wishes to think for oneself, it's imperative to deconstruct tautologies, because tautologies cannot help us to think things through:

government is virtually always coercive since....

the free market is always non-coercive since....

The Next Step In Having The Republican Presidential Canidate Chosen For Us.

Once again we have another opportunity to watch how corporate money is making our choice of presidential candidate for us. All this is happening in the Republican party since the Democrats have only one candidate at this time. That does not mean the Democrats are immune to all this, but, it does give us an opportunity to learn.

It’s Time for Bill O’Reilly to Get Real about White Privilege

It’s time for white America to get real about white privilege. Last night, Bill O’Reilly came from back vacation early to host a special edition of “The Factor”, one that he said would “tell the truth” about what’s going on in Ferguson, Missouri.
