They may win this time, but their days are numbered. Someone is going to pull a "REGAN" on them. Probably next June. Tea party will come up with something nasty. And the rest of the country will follow.

I think it will be successful, not because the stated conclusions offered after the yes and no outcomes are anything close to an accurate or complete picture, but because it's in Illinois. The lack of realistic politician promises to supporting voter blocks will probably see it bankrupt and looking for a national bailout not long after California.

The War on Drugs is a War on Americans

The War on Drugs isn’t a war on drugs; it’s a war on people, and this weekend it claimed its latest victim.

On Sunday morning, exactly one week after an encounter with police left him with 80 percent of his spine severed at his neck, Baltimore resident Freddie Gray died at a local hospital. He was just 27 years old.

From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
