"Conservatives" and, apparently some judges, seem to have no trouble with the principle of "all for one" and the sovereignty of personal freedom, but struggle with the couplet line "one for all" (which libertarians find ridiculous). Responsible citizenship and commercial standards and practices we need to achieve such has been ignored, I fear, and the public discourse reduced to the catastrophic damages and costs of broccoli markets (about which Congress could be reasonably expected to legislate, I suppose).

In my opinion, the D.A. is not protecting Zimmerman for political reasons. The Sanford police started doing the right thing, but they were stopped. The D.A. is protecting the Make My Day law. Subpoena his phone records. See how much he was involved in the 65 previous murders in his states. Did he make similar phone calls and visits to other police departments with these cases? Hmmm.
The more information that comes out the more it shows how our justice system works. Zimmerman called his father immediately after the shooting. I'd like to see a copy of his fathers phone records for that night. I'd like to know if his father who is a retired judge from Virginia contacted someone in power to try to prevent a real investigation. It would explain why high ranking officials allowed Zimmerman to be let free and take all evidence of the crime with him.
After publishing at a respected liberal blog Thom's perpective that the Supreme Court has no Constitutional authority to rescind laws enacted by Congress, I had a blogger post this rebuttal to Thom's perspective:
EPA’s new carbon rule a dangerous obama loophole joke designed to honor existing concentrations of wealth for the upcoming elections.
At least that is what Rick Scott and his GOP Bullies are trying to do.
I am a member of the democratic underground. I am attempting unsuccessfully to use Thom's discussion on Marburry v Madison in debate with fellow DUers. What would make life easier for me would be a transcript of Thom's discussion on this topic. He has discussed this in depth both on Monday and today. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thank you. chknltl3
Couldn't we, wouldn't we, have avoided all this flap over healthcare if the administration had passed a constitutional amendment making healthcare "constitutional" in the same way that the 16th Amendment made the income tax "constitutional" when previously it was considered to be unconstitutional?
Healthcare is indispensible Hello. that is the difference between Broccoli and Healthcare.
I recently watched a 4 part documentary by Adam Curtis done for the BBC in 2002 entitled The Century of the Self. I borrowed it from the library but I know it is available on line. It is very interesting and illustrates just how we became a consumer society (the U.S.
When did the Congress become accused of frivolous intent? No one is bankrupt from lack of broccoli, and our representatives intended to remedy grievous damage done to millions of citizens because of medical costs/coverage (unique market/industry much?). Why would licensing (familiar example) present a fearsome threat to personal sovereignty when we operate as medical "vehicles"; or do all tolls, fees, charges and levies violate personal immunity from any "governmental" intercession (libertarianism prevail?)?
