A Question of Balance

A Capital Idea Part 68: A Question of Balance

At the risk of repeating something I have written earlier, I will discuss the need for a balanced, and in balance with nature, economy. (And by the way, happy birthday to my mom, Thom Hartmann, and my graduate school advisor, Carolyn Murray!)

Take Away The Doubt

After trillions of dollars spent on these wars and on the search of Bin Laden resulting in the deaths of thousands maybe a million of mostly innocent people, the way Obama handeled this gave no closure to the families of 9/11 or to the rest of the American people who have so much invested.There should be more proof of the death of Bin Laden. I am not saying that I want to see the gruesome pictures. We have the technology to easily verify the authenticity of any pictures that would be produced.

Obama Plays the Osama Card

The Obama administration says Osama bin Laden's quick burial at sea was in accordance with Islamic tradition, and they did so because they didn't want to create a shrine for Al Qaeda sympathizers to visit by burying him on land. Obama is also refusing to release photos of the body, citing the risk of additional violence and claiming they would be used as propaganda tools.

NOVEL IDEA for countering corporate lobbyist problem by creating the LOBBY OF THE PEOPLE

I suggest that a token amount (at first maybe 1$/tax payer or even a penny (the utility of any denomination is explained below and has an alternitive application of statistical value) of our tax dollars be individulally assignable to proposed existing or future legislation via withholding choices made available from the employed tax payers withholding on a frequency of at least quarterly or at worst annually.

it's all in a name?!

What is with the name Kathryn? isn't that the same for the Florida election snafu, and now the Wisconsin one?

1962 message to congress from President John F. Kennedy

We are not developing the Nation's wealth for its own sake.

Wealth is the means-

and people are the ends.

All our material riches will avail us little

if we do not use them

to expand the opportunities of our people.

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor,

it cannot save the few who are rich.

The less of two evils is still evil

Calling people Deathers is pigeon holding free thinking people and taking away their freedom to express themselves.. If this is Free Speech TV how come people who disagree with you get cut off. I know you are backing the Democratic Party but isn't that kind of holding you back from finding out the truth? How about Dan Rather, Barry Petersen and Madeline Albright? You know these people- are they all liars? Bin Laden was a CIA agent. These are all FACTS. I have been a Democrat since John F.

Scientific-philosophical basis for progressive morality, justification of vision

I'd like to offer some thoughts on one of the fundamental tenets of progressivism. That is, the one explicit in the word "progressive": that human society changes over time to conform to new ideals. The ultimate source of the ideals which we identify as progressive is the human species itself. Many of the ambiguities, contradictions, and arguments surrounding political ideals revolve around the ideas which people have about human nature. I believe it is possible to understand the transformations and developments of human society and culture as being rooted in human nature itself.

Osama V Obama?

Q: What is the difference between Osama bin Laden and Barack Obama?

A: One had the groundwork for his success laid out for him by George W. Bush. The other is President of the United States.

Thank you! I'll be here all week!

The Wealthy get Healthy. And the poor?

The wealthy get healthy, the poor get poorly? Lay perceptions of health inequalities. This article points out how the rich assume all health inequalities are due to choices rather than admitting that there are societal and structural differences in opportunities for healthy choices.
