Marbury vs. Madison/Judicial Supremacy - a solution!

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.

Forget your rights.

As corporate overlords position themselves to seize what little remains of a tattered social net (adieu Medicare and Medicaid! Social Security? Au revoir!), the Obama administration is moving at break-neck speed to expand police state programs first stood-up by the Bush government.

Changing Attitudes About Socialism

Changing Attitudes About Socialism

For the most part Americans have a Christian heart that has a concern for the poor and oppressed. America has even fought in many wars to eliminate oppression of other people. I don't think most Americans ever really thought Socialism was working, but they hoped something would work.

Tea Party Activist on the School Board

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.

How Democrats benefit from the Cycle of Poverty

How Democrats benefit from the Cycle of Poverty

The Cycle of Poverty is poor people having illegitimate children that leads to more poverty.

Democrats say they are trying to help the poor, but I believe Democrats benefit from poverty so they are not about to eliminate poverty.

Ideology Contrast .....Left Wing /Right Wing "Authoritarianism" or "Motivation Theory"

I recently caught a title of an article that addresses this very question. I could only skim read, because in length and scope, it was ad nauseum.....so I was inspired to start a juicy topic here.

The author's conclusion was clearly stated....Leftist politics is absolutely Authoritarian, and Rightist politics, therefore is positionally neutered from being able to impose restrictive freedom upon society. Really?

The reason I"m an Independent and not a Democrat

Because I believe ever since the 60's they and liberals and general have lost there back bone. They caved on ALMOST all the issues I STRONGLY supported. No single payer, the bush tax cuts, etc. and now Obama is talking about SS and MediCare. The fact that he even uses the phrase ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS discusts me. That was a phrase created by the conservatives to demonize it. Why do people call themselves progressives and not liberal. I'm sure not in all cases but I think it's because the Republicans turned it into a bad word.

For those tired of complaining

I believe that in this desperate economic time, the only thing missing is proactive people. Where are all you baby boomers hiding. Everytime in our nations history when we were in trouble the people decided to band together andf ix it. The American Revolution, Great Depression, and cCivil Rights movement. No one now is to be found. People go to rallies all the time what change happens at this rally. I have an idea to get people talking about working.together if you are interested take.two seconds to email me at organizedconsumers@gmail.com. or do a Facebook search for the email.
