We Have Wilson to Thank for it... Let Freedom Ring (Democrats Always Ring Twice)

Woodrow Wilson was a real bug about freedom, so we owe him a lot.

(DAYTONA BEACH) - Woodrow Wilson According to Jonathan Turley, a professor of law at George Washington University, the freedoms we spend so much time and ink blubbering about are rapidly being eroded, often in the interest of that national security of which our freedom is the cause celebre.

A year or two ago, our President, a mild-mannered former street-community worker from Chicago who critics feared lacked the stamina or resolve to be a Commander-in-Chief...

Forgiveness is Dysfunctional

Most people who seek forgiveness are scared of being held accountable for their behaviour. Most people who offer forgiveness are scared of holding people accountable for their behaviour.

(TASMANIA) - Forgiveness Certain religious traditions, including Christianity, emphasise the importance of forgiveness. I want to explain why forgiveness is misconceived and, therefore, a bad idea.

And why there are important psychological reasons for this. In essence, the key question is this: What is the appropriate psychological response to inappropriate behaviour if we want change in the direction of improved functionality in future?

PRESS TV: Ukrainian Anti-Semitism Revealed

Without question, this alleged act hearkens back to the Nazi years, when the Ukrainians were largely associated with Adolf Hitler's Third Reich in Nazi Germany.

(SALEM) - Ukrainian riot police cracking down on peaceful protesters In order for US foreign policy to appear justified, feckless American politicians always must assess blame to the proper "bad guy" country. It is the way this world works, and it is, quite frankly, why everyone alive is marching directly toward an entirely avoidable third world war.

According to reports, a mysterious group in the Ukraine is telling Jews they have to register with the government, disclose their property and vehicles, and pay a $50 fine for processing. A memo handed out to Jews exiting a synagogue, says those who fail to comply will be forced to leave the country and forfeit assets.

Say No to Big Money

We’ve already seen the results of Citizens United.  We know what happens when the special interests are left unchecked.  We know what the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove and their deep-pocketed friends can do when they have free reign to spend and spend and spend on political campaigns.

(WASHINGTON DC) - Senator Ron Wyden You’ve heard me say it before: The Supreme Court’s recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC is another crack in the dam standing between us and unlimited political spending.

The decision eliminates the restrictions on how many campaigns wealthy donors can seek to influence. And let me tell you – it’s a step in the wrong direction.

"After reading this i am of the opinion that Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va) would have been better named Jim Moron." - Salem-News.com's Bob Collinsworth

(WASHINGTON DC) - Land of the Free with Restrictions Following a second mass shooting at Fort Hood, at least one lawmaker thinks a bill currently under consideration will ensure the safety of American communities by requiring the estimated 2.6 million unstable veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan to tell their neighbors of their combat service.
