I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.
Hello Thom and Everyone!
I remember Thom citing what I think was a conversation (it might have been ficticious) between a railroad representative and (I think) a government official. The essence of the message was that the railroads would WELCOME a government agency to oversee them. The idea was that they (the rairoads) would appoint the people who would staff this agency, then if there was any contraversey, the people could/would blame the regulators for ALLOWING the abuses and NOT the railroad themselves.
My purpose here is to start a potentially viral thread, that plainly exposes the undeniable negligence of U.S. Security, on the one hand....hello?.... 9/11......; and the vile, disgusting, situational exploitation and abuse of labor; from precious, hard working , oppressed, mostly brown skinned people.
One of the most important attributes about this blessed and privileged country that most of us love; is it's unique, Constitutional imperative that American citizens have the opportunity; and are also encourage

I appreciate Thom’s utter disdain for Marbury vs. Madison and his constant railing against the notion of judicial review. I for one have been arguing with law professors for years about this very same issue. In a recent on-air debate with a caller, Thom made the point of using the following example:
A law that states that all Muslims could be detained and question for an indefinite period of time without legal representation.

So we have been having problems in my community. The School Board just wants to cut and cut. It closed 2 schools in 2 years and has now declared an impasse with negotiations with teachers. Even though the teachers have given much up (and made 8 offers), the board only gave one offer and refuses to even meet with the teachers unless they accept a 20-30% pay decrease (among other things).
Of course, people think that as government employees, teachers are living the high life.
