Republicans are tearing down the constitution bit by bit.

Yes, Thom, there is no doubt the Republicans read the constitution. That's so they can remember what to tear down. Republicans are doing so many things that are unconstitutional that it makes me angry. Especially where they (GOP) want to deny voting rights to eligible voters. They want the electorate to jump through hoops before they will allow citizens their constitutional right to vote. They even want to take away seniors right to vote by saying they must have a picture Identification driver's license. Once seniors reach their late 80s or 90s they no lo

If libertarians as depredators (I can do what ever I want to the earth and nothing will happen to me) hits a proven world solution will you comment?

This article states the problem, gives a 200 year proven world solution and with your consent goes the extra step and cleans up the whole mess. The problem; Libertarians are a small faction who have no understanding of the whole and the commons that belong to the whole as was taught in civics class.

Nice graphic presentation about corporate share and the working share

I think you forgot about big government using the street cameras to milk the working middle class. However while I was appalled about how the big corporations placed their monies in the Cayman Islands and Burmuda, I can't wait to get back to the tropical humble living which I came from after I retire in two more years and go back to lugging pans of water on my head from the well to my abode. Then maybe the wealthy who has been milking me while I was working will be feeling around with their stretched out hands asking "Where did he go." By the way.

The World is My Ashtray

The World is My Ashtray by leighmf

Am I to blame them in a car,
costing $65,000, for a little more tar
if they're compelled to keep it neat

walkways are arteries,
I beg your pardon!
I truly don't care for flowers with butts,
cocktail stirrers, and napkins, you nuts!

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
