The Filibuster is UNCONSTITUTIONAL !

The Filibuster is UNCONSTITUTIONAL !

about Bayh’s take on the filibuster.And there has been a lot of ‘discussion about it, including Dodd’s coming out and saying he is against such ‘reform’.So what’s the story about the filibuster?"One thing stands out as an impediment to changing the current system and that is "it gives one senator enormous power to put a procedural hold on an appointee. And I have to say, there is no better way to raise money for a senator than to go around to contributors and saying, “Hey, I single-handedly can shut down the whole country,” which, as the rules now operate, they can do. So people—it’s a lot...

It’s called coping

It’s called coping

With all the downer info we are subjected to on a daily and ongoing basis, it’s hard not to become depressed.I mean, here we supposedly are celebrating the Declaration of Independence this weekend and doesn’t even know whom independence was declared from. Sheesh.Add to that the years I reflect upon and that nothing has changed over those years, and yes, it is depressing. For example,This song was published 18 years ago -and I can round up others that go back further than 18 years !- and it’s lyrics are still accurate.I think this song reflects what a lot of us want:So to get out of my...

Not Outraged Yet? - Shadowproof

A lot has been ‘media-cized’ about the AIG bonuses and rightfully so BUT….Why is there not the same amount of outrage about AIG suing the government about taxes?Here is a summation of the issue:"AIG is claiming that it overpaid taxes related to activities of an AIG-linked Panamanian corporation chartered in tax haven Panama. No surprise then, that none other than AIG – along with other bailed-out banks – supports a hangover Bush Free Trade Agreement with Panama.""At issue is AIG-linked Starr International Company (SICO), which, it turns out, is AIG’s largest shareholder(besides us). It is...

Saturday Art- Dance is/as art - Shadowproof

Saturday Art- Dance is/as art - Shadowproof

I’ve always been a fan of tap dancing; think it has to do with my love of percussion; drums just ‘do it’ for me.And nowadays, what passes for ‘dance’ seems more like acrobatic and gymnastic movement than ‘dance’ to me but ,hell, I’m an old fart so I guess that’s to be expected.I mean, this title: “Now This Dude Can Dance! Best Dancer Ever Maybe?” gets to what I mean. Is this ‘dance’? As towards ‘best dancer ever maybe’, ROFLMAO !I mean really? Guy is truly remarkable in his talent but I can’t consider what he does as ‘dancing’.Not sure when I first noticed tap dancing but Gregory Hines does...

Ponzi schemes and Abraham Lincoln,economist - Shadowproof

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. -Thomas JeffersonAmericans are fond of quoting Jefferson, but we live in Hamilton’s country. – George WillOn similar ground it may be proved that no society can make a perpetual constitution, or even a perpetual law. The earth belongs always to the living generation. –In thinking about Jefferson, remember this:Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself,I am large, I contain multitudes. -Walt WhitmanThere’s been hoopla about Social Security being a ponzi scheme and others have shown...
