Norway Massacre

It will be interesting to see how Norway deals with this crime. Will they change any of their laws or policies? If this had happened in the US, the answer would be simple. Arm the kids. There is no problem that can't be cured with more guns. If the kids at this camp had been armed this would not have happened. Patrons in bars in some states can now carry weapons, has anyone ever heard of someone having too much to drink and getting into a gun battle. OK , bad example.

Constitutional Republic Or Fascist Oligarchy

This may come as a surprise to most people but not to anyone who is politically astute, has been paying attention to the political conversion of our constitutional republic into a privatized, corporate [fascist] one since the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980, or, like myself, is a prophet.

We are no longer a democratic, constitutional republic based upon egalitarian principles of democracy [as expressed in the preamble to our US Constitution] that provide constitutional protections to the people.

Soviet Union Collapsed NOT because of our spending! Irony abounds ...

We've all heard this false assertion by republicans in praise of Reagan:

"Under Reagan we outspent the Soviet Union, which caused it's collapse."

Under the radar

Two recent articles in the Seattle Times might raise some concern if you connect the dots. The first was a article about how big investors are buying up farm land. This has driven up the value in some areas, more than threefold in the last ten years. When big money interests, that have control of both the price of commodities (wall street) and the production of those same commodities (farms), the price of food will skyrocket. No good will come from this.

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
