I’m old enough to remember the days prior to Personal Computers, Cable TV, the Internet and cell phones. Few of us would want to turn the technology clock back to those days. New technology is wonderful and does many great things, but as a society we are inept at managing it.
You commented on Friday about 4 20-year cycles that have repeated themselves throughout the past 200 years or so. Can you please give me the name of the web site you associated with this comment, and the book you mentioned. It sounded like you said "The 4th Attorney". (I'm driving on an interstate when I listen, and can't write any of it down.) Thanks.
This is cartoon where fictional characters talk about the tea party and the American Political-Economy.
I heard today that when Senator Kyle retires after 3 terms as US Senator he will be receiving a monthly, lifetime "pension" from US of at least $ 60,00.00 per year, meanwhile the republicant's & many other fiscal conservative types are on the march to kill, or at least radically cut pensions for state, government & other workers around the country. So, I pass on this proposal which I received by e-mail that begins to address this pension "crisis" in our country.
Had "W" addressed that body (Chamber of Commerce, 2011), he might have resurrected his infamous declaration:
"This is an impressive crowd — the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elites; I call you my base".
To say that Obama was a bit more amenable would be quite the understatement.
I believe you are incorrect in your assessment about Marbury vs. Madison, "activist judges" and judicial review for several reasons.
Thom it was interesting and troubling to hear your interview with Charlotte Hayes. She so typified the conservative, southern right views on Obama, John Kerry and what happen in Ohio and of course the hijacking of the Bush cabal of the 2000 Florida election and the support of the Supreme Court. Even when given proof of these facts via New York Times, where the vote went to be counted from Ohio and who controlled the vote counting process, she still couldn't accept these facts.

Although it may not be a word, using "profitize" instead of "privatize" nails the true intentions of the GOP in just three syllables. ALL PROGRESSIVE TALK SHOW HOSTS NEED TO POPULARIZE THIS TERM. The Lenz/Rove corporatist spin machine has cost our country so much merely by choosing precise words for followers to parrot. Now it's our turn. But our attack will be different, because rather than deflect, refute, or ignore the truth, our words will be carefully chosen to accurately reflect the truth.
The State of Wisconsin's Department of Commerce has been privatized
more if and when it unfolds,....
Tom was talking with someone at C-Pac who insisted that it was not FDR or the New Deal which got us out of the Depression, but WWII.
Sorry that I'm somewhat behind the live show, but I'm now listening to the podcast from Wednesday, 2/9, and the anti-union screed from that woman in NJ in the first hour simply horrified me. I think that the most idiotic, hate-filled thing that she said during her rant was when she called herself a member of the "REAL" Middle Class.
