Ummm . . . yes? Which is why you might consider:
America Is Living James Madison’s Nightmare. “The Founders,” Jeffrey Rosen writes, “designed a government that would resist mob rule. They didn’t anticipate how strong the mob could become.” Is our democracy dying?
2. How Democracies Die, by Steven Levitsky and […]
I find myself at TeaParty.org from time to time — I get a lot of mail from Steve Scalise worried that the Democrats will take back the House (and cost him his possible speakership), and from right-wing groups (unless they’re KGB sites — who knows?) like Prepared Patriots and The Daily Conspiracy with headlines like […]
Yesterday, I promoted some great protest signs. Here are some great chalkboard quotes, from a gas station in South Africa. (And only a couple concern alcohol: “Stop trying to make everybody happy — you’re not tequila.” “If you have to choose between drinking wine every day or being skinny, which would you choose? Red […]
HOW ABOUT AN AWARDS SHOW FOR THE BEST PROTEST SIGNS?
Among my favorites:
TRUMPCARE. IT’S LIKE TRUMP UNIVERSITY BUT YOU DIE.
IF THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T […]
Run, don’t walk to rent Active Measures on iTunes — just released ($3.95). Trump really is Putin’s puppet. He has laundered billions of dollars of Russian oligarch/mafia money, beginning in 1984. Putin’s attack on our democracy put him in the White House — and is ongoing. You have to watch this today. You may find yourself […]
But first . . .
Here’s an idea: why don’t Bob Corker, Ben Sasse, and Jeff Flake switch parties for the final three months of their Senate service, and save their country?
“We’re so proud of the Republican ideals we’ve long espoused, but one of those ideals is fairness. It’s not fair to have denied […]
I have so many posts backed up, but it’s all just kind of overwhelming.
Ted Cruz made me crazy yesterday.
He said Trump made it very clear what sort of Justices he would appoint — he even submitted the list from which he’d choose! — and Hillary told the nation what sort of Justices she would appoint, and then the American people spoke: they chose Trump’s slate.
Well, yeah, […]
This piece by Ronald Dworkin in The American Interest struck me as exceptionally thoughtful and worth sharing. (Thanks Glenn!)
It begins with a story:
When I was growing up, my extended Jewish family held an annual party. On one occasion, a visiting college student majoring in philosophy lectured us on his theory of justice. He […]
Quote of the Day
Every gun that is fired, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.~Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953
