"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
This sears-franchise-owner-defies-corporate-orders--will-stay-closed-on-thanksgiving- proves who has cajones and who are chickensh#ts.
Colorado State Sen. Evie Hudak (D) resigns before recall petition deadline.
Two down, hundreds to go. Never underestimate the power of a red state mentality that the progressives think they own.
I don't remember seeing this posted around here or on our local news.
Does the ACA has anything to do with this?
Revolutionary change doesn't happen often in the US... and Teddy Roosevelt is one example of a progressive "revolution".
What does it take to bring such change to a corrupt, antidemocratic, and essentially reform-proof system. I don't think that Doris Kerans Goodwin would phrase it that way... but that's my take.
This show is playing live at 10a today and will be available for streaming soon. So if you're looking for something to listen to until Thom comes on:
It was announced, today, that the Supreme Court would hear arguments in the case of Sebellius v. Hobby Lobby in the Spring of 2014.
The justices agreed to review provisions in the Affordable Care Act requiring employers of a certain size to offer insurance coverage for birth control and other reproductive health services without a co-pay. At issue is whether private companies and non-profits can refuse on the claim it violates their religious beliefs.
From the NYTimes--
Maybe this is a silly idea but, if the Federal Reserve can print money to bail out the big banks, could they not print up more to finance the rebuilding of the crumbling
infrastructure. it sure as heck would SOLVE the problems WITH the infrastructure AND give the economy a HUGE BOOST?
After all, it's only numbers on a page...right???
Secondly, would like to see more coverage on how the TPP would destroy the sovereignty of the countries signing the partnership.
Renting rather than owning might be the way to think of when it might be better to leave things to Commerce rather than undertake our collective investment process in what is beyond the effectiveness of government. In a democracy, owning our Commons and having the collective ability to finance what is socially desirable cannot be morally foreclosed. There is no inherent "right" to profit off of "us" in the name of "free enterprise" or the "private sector" as if democracy made us pay a series of pipers.
OK.... someone downloads an "illegal" copy of Walking Dead or Dexter.
What should be the punishment?
Some downloaders have been convicted NOT for actual damages to the respective copyright holders... an amount that would total a few cents or dimes... but a punitive amount designed to send a message to other downloaders.
Granted enforcement of copyright law in the digital age is difficult, but do such punitive penalties to a single party cross the line permitted by the Eight Amendment?
