SOMEONE ASKED WHO'S RESPONSIBLE FOR RISE OF ISIS

Ultimately the right wing Neo Con government of George W bush / Dick Cheney are responsible for the rise of ISIS, they illegally destroyed a once modern secular country , bombed Iraq into the 'stone age' as they liked to say. Iraq under Saddam, as terrible as he was, would never have been ground zero for the very brutal ISIS.

what is "crime"?

Crime is the expression of internal social tensions within the civic environment.

The importance of understanding crime as producing social contexts where individuals' self-interest has a relation to the function of the social form. This form develops over time as the isolating the phenomenon of crime as a type of behavior only examines the logical function of existing within or without of the strictures applied by the justice system. The motivation and means for criminal behavior relates to the wider situatedness of the phenomenon in its many expressions.

WHY DON'T PROGRESSIVES LOBBY ON TV?

I bet you're asking why I'm asking this question. I know that all these progressive organizations that I donate to, including Freespeech, operate on a very limited budget, and that most of their funds go to lobbying congressional leaders and other state and local politicians. I'm well aware of that. But aren't ads on the local and multi-media networks a form of lobbying?

Privatization and its inherent danger to our health

Our failure to have adequate vaccines for Ebola is due to the failure for private pharmaceuticals to develop these vaccines because it is not profitable. So far it has mainly hit very poor countries so the profit motive does not incentivize this research and development.

The real value to the Republicans of the so-called suckers is their commitment / zealousness to vote in every election to keep the shills in office to protect their various "single issues." Quite simply, these folks are the Republicans' MISLED VOTERS. Stronger but not always useful could be the phrase DECEIVED VOTERS. They could also be called the Repubs' DECEIVED PUBLIC or MISLED VOTING BLOCS.

Funny conversation with husband. He was wondering why so many of his union buddies vote Repubican. I said since conservatives feminized the Democratic Party, his union friends are simply insecure about their masculinity. Therefore....

Obama to move TPP forward by cutting Medicare by $700 million.

On Tuesday, something happened that no one expected: Thanks to the leadership of Senators Harry Reid, Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown and Bernie Sanders – who were powered by the activism of hundreds of thousands of CREDO members and our allies in the progressive community – Democrats were able to slow down the progress of Fast Track trade authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) by blocking a key test vote.
