Our Republic is broken. A lockstep minority, cloaked in arcane rules, can bring business to a complete halt. The influence of monied interests is rampant. The social contract has been shredded, and cherished liberties erode. A yawning chasm opens between rich and poor. A bloated foreign empire bleeds the Treasury. The public discourse is controlled by a profit-driven Fourth Estate that is loath to criticize its owners. The promise of a populist president seems impotent against the entrenched forces arrayed against him.

Our Republic is broken. What is to be done? Let's call a Constitutional Convention and fix it.

Good morning and the best of luck to you this bright February day, especially if, gods help you, you are driving a new Toyota.  The Washington Post produced an article this week that points to that nasty little accelerator-sticking problem, and notes that it was identified at least as early as 2007.  There is the frightening anecdote or two to back up the statistics, like the 70-year-old woman who went on a 60-miles-per-hour terror ride for two miles before piling into someone else at an intersection.  Turns out the problem may be that floor mat or maybe corrosion of some sort, but don’t look now and do look out for that cement truck as you dodge from obstacle t

The privilege of opening the first trial in history for crimes against the peace of the world imposes a grave responsibility. The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored because it cannot survive their being repeated...
-
...We must never forget that the record on which we judge these defendants today is the record on which history will judge us tomorrow. To pass these defendants a poisoned chalice is to put it to our own lips as well. We must summon such detachment and intellectual integrity to our task that this trial will commend itself to posterity as fulfilling humanity...

Voices from the Edge on 01/28/10

Air date: 
Thu, 01/28/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
What's the state of your Union? A look at the president's address.

What's the State of Your Union?
Wednesday, President Obama will address the nation about the state of the Union. Among those listening to the president's speech will be nearly 210,000 unemployed Oregonians who are part of the 15 million Americans (official figures that don't include those who have just quit looking for work) out of work during this economic crisis. Will the president provide eloquent but empy rhetoric or will he step up and provide long overdue bold leadership to bring relief to those Americans most in need?
 

This week, host Dave Mazza is joined by KBOO talk radio hosts Abe Proctor and Joe Uris for a post-speech analysis that will look at what the president got right, what he got wrong and where he needs to go to bring the change he promised in 2008. Dave, Abe and Joe will also be following up on last week's Supreme Court decision that elimnated decades-old restrictions on corporate political expenditures and what that augers for moving real reform forward in the coming months. Join us in the conversation and let us know the state of your Union.

Imperialism, Boot Camp and Cognitive Dissonance

It is time to strip away some of the mythology and outright sycophancy vis-a-vis military service in the U.S. imperial war machine. Yes, some heroic actions are undertaken and sacrifices made by U.S. forces despite the often ugly intentions of those who sent them into battle, but the U.S. military is also full of psychopaths, sociopaths, glory boys, morons, racists, proto-fascists, and other forms/types of pathological personalities who often thrive in a military environment.
