So far as I can determine the White House has not responded to the petition to charge the 47 Republican senators who signed the infamous letter to Iran in spite of the fact that just short of 320,000 people have signed it. Please take a few minutes to send feedback questioning the White House’s failure to respond. No profanity, please. Ask your friends, Facebook and Twitter pals to do the same. The feedback link is below. Thanks.
There was a time when the Supreme Court of the United States defended and upheld the Constitutional protections for economic liberty in America. This year marks the 80th anniversary of one of the Supreme Court’s finest hours, when it overturned Franklin Roosevelt’s agenda for economic fascism in the U.S.
The trend toward bigger and ever-more-intrusive government, unfortunately, was not stopped, but the case nonetheless was a significant event that at that time prevented the institutionalizing of a Mussolini-type fascist economic system in America.

Activists are searching out small businesses to destroy, if the owner doesn’t want to make a cake celebrating gay weddings.

In election 2000 US (and world history) changed for the worst WITHOUT the consent of the US public. While the Supreme Court acted despicably... the real culprit was the electoral college... a giant vote weighting/dilution scheme that gave the vote of any citizens in Bush's Florida lead 1000x the weight of any citizen's vote in Gore's national lead. All the Supreme Court did was let the EC do its dirty work.

Former Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D) spoke to students at the University of California in Berkeley.”
From her speech:
""Public employees unions nationwide are anxiously eyeing the possibility the Supreme Court may take up a case that could determine their survival.The case could invalidate “agency shop” arrangements under the First Amendment and determine if agency shop “violates the First Amendment to require that public employees affirmatively object to subsidizing nonchargeable speech by public-sector unions, rather than requiring that employees affirmatively consent to subsidizing such speech,”
This PAC says they are not going to spend money on ads or the campaign. What are they going to spend money on? I think even Dex and the kumbaya libs can agree that dark secret money is not good for democracy.
Big hint on number 1. He is the Koch Brothers lap dog.
