Why it is better to celebrate Cooperation, Courtesy, and Compassion in the context of Democracy!

To everyone here,

I have come to the realization that I have the extremely bad habit of trying to argue for Democracy and The Commons by trying to wean it out in discussions with people about Libertarianism. Well, I have decided that I need to discuss more the virtues of Democracy and the Commons and discuss less a defensive position against Libertarianism.

Freedom?

Tea Party

A protest chant for townhall meetings overtaken by t party imbeciles: "If you join the tea party you get a free lobotomy".

A petition that can actually help reduce police brutality

Many of us probably have friends who post youtube videos of excessive force used by police, who subsequently claim "assault". Sometimes the brutality reaches incredible highs:

Clinton says that Iraq should have renewed status of forces agreement?

"Clinton aimed more harsh words at al-Maliki, saying that in retrospect the Prime Minister should not have rejected an extended “status-of-forces agreement” with the U.S., which would have kept American troops in the country beyond 2011."

Shifting The Blame For "Liar Loans" And The Bush Crash Of '08

The Right never did take ANY responsibility for demolishing the economy... and part of this was to shift the blame for bad loans from the banks to the applicants for allegedly providing phoney information about income, etc. This may be true in some cases... but I believe it's against the law.

Give the IRS a break!!!

I'm sick and tired of people putting down the IRS; they do the best they can with what they have.

This three ring circus around the targeting of Conservative groups is yesterday's news - and I bet there's not a single person on this website that hasn't lost an email or two at some period of time --- Lois Lerner's computer crashed a few years ago, and we can't find emails between her and anyone outside of the IRS, including POTUS, Dem Party and others.....its not like the IRS is required to keep records for more than a few years, right???? C'mon.....
