Arizona does not know how to treat people. I will never vacation there until this gets resolved -pro-immigrant.

They had better strike down Arizona's anti-immigration law. I will not vacation there until they do.

GOP Con judges are having an orgasm over Obamacare case. Finally another chance to try & deny Obama a 2nd term But it will not work with voters who can think crititcally & use logic which eliminates Fox GOP fans - loyal followers- ditto heads

Both alternatives as written contain truth. The law does indeed violate the 1st, 4th, and 14th Amendments. But so what, when you're dealing with this Court's right-wing majority? My prediction is we'll see another of those 5-4 decisions upholding it.

@dianhow,

"But it will not work with voters who can think crititcally & use logic"

True--so that's 15% to 20% of American voters we don't have to worry about. :-/

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
