Working To End Citizens United

Congressman Jim McGovern introduced a bill this week to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling. Working toward a constitutional amendment has been the work of John Bonifanz and Free Speech for people since the day the ruling came down. To learn more about this great organization, read the blog/interview I did with John earlier this summer. I've reposted it below.

Stammering Stephanie can’t accept Ventura’s premise that the problem is people can’t see a solution outside voting for Dems or Reps.

The Congressional Millionaire

The evening news announced, "47% of the members of Congress are millionaires."

Indefinite detention proposed…

Sounds like treason to me! or were all my history, government, and civics classes in the 50's and 60's complete b.s.?

A Capital Idea Part 93: I Occupied Riverside, and I Liked it

On Sunday morning, I noticed a post on Facebook from Occupy Riverside which said that they would be having an "education day" that day with various workshops. I checked the workshop schedule, and decided that this was the day for me to make my first appearance at an Occupy site. Thus, I found myself headed for downtown Riverside, CA that afternoon.

NPR Needs To Clean Up Their House

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
