Bill Clinton can save Dems

Bill Clinton can save Dems

By Brent Budowsky

Rarely do a man, moment, mission and election come together as perfectly as the opportunity for Bill Clinton to save the Democratic Party in the 2014 midterm elections…

Public approval of Clinton is a stunning 50 points higher than that of congressional Republicans running in 2014. If the campaign is framed as the hugely popular Clinton championing Democrats against the hugely unpopular Republicans in Washington, Democrats can win a dramatic upset victory…

The smart move for Democrats in 2014 would be for the hugely popular Bill Clinton to campaign boldly, and the widely unpopular Obama to step back and minimize his omnipresent saturation on television…

Clinton is the hugely popular voice to credit Obama for an economy that is improving — an economy that would improve even more if Republicans who oppose programs to create jobs and economic equality are defeated again.

Clinton is the ultimate voice to praise Democrats and confront partisan and vindictive Republicans who tried to sue and impeach him, too, for things voters fondly remember in happier days they wish were here again.

Supreme Court Upholds Little Caesar’s Right to Feed Christian Employees to Lions

The Onion has some competition:

Supreme Court Upholds Little Caesar’s Right to Feed Christian Employees to Lions

LionsEatChristians

(Atlanta Banana)  The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that Roman-owned pizza chain Little Caesar’s was within its rights to place Christian employees in an arena and then unleash starved, vicious lions and lionesses upon them. The court cited religious freedom as its guiding principle. The 5-to-4 ruling opened the door to potentially thousands of Christian Little Caesar employees nationwide being immediately fed to the top predators of the African savannah.

Little Caesar’s argued that the persecution of Christians and the feeding of them to ravenous big cats was a “deeply held” religious belief, that the continued survival of the roughly 6,000 Christian employees, as well as the fact that they remained on company payroll, imposed a “substantial financial burden” on their religious liberty.

The 5 conservative Justices agreed.

Declare your Independence

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Please read the entire document—it’s not long. The kingly abuses listed are almost identical to the abuses the Republican Party and its appointees in the Supreme Court have visited on this nation.

Los Angeles Times:

Gallup poll: Confidence in Supreme Court falls to 30%

There was time when a majority of Americans were confident in their Supreme Court, but those positive feelings have been eroding in the last quarter of a century so that just 30% now say they have confidence in the institution, according to a Gallup poll.

The poll, released Monday, had good news and bad news for the high court, a unique institution that serves as a check and balance in the United States. People have more confidence in the court than in any other arm of government, but that may not be saying that much when confidence in the presidency stands at 29% and in the Congress at 7%.

When are we going to take back our country? Here’s a start:

Progressives need an organization dedicated to establishing, developing, and supporting talented researchers, linguists, writers, investigative reporters, social psychologists, speakers, filmmakers, and cartoonists who believe in truthful reporting and commentary, and making sure their work receives wide exposure.  Creating and supporting new and independent media outlets is one of the ways of accomplishing this goal.

The purpose of this organization would be twofold.  The first objective is to inform as many Americans as possible about progressive issues and the fact that our issues are their issues, and to persuade them to support those issues.  A second important goal is to persuade the Democratic Party to support the people’s issues.  Too many Democratic leaders have been just as misled by the siren songs of the right as have so many American citizens, who have almost completely stopped their demands for fair treatment and honest government.  And too many Democratic leaders have been seduced by corporate money.  The way to entice politicians to fight for us and our issues is to show them how many Americans believe as we do.

Corporations are not persons

One more right of individual citizens right granted to corporations by the Roberts Court:

Justices: Can’t Make Employers Cover Contraception
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women. The justices’ 5-4 decision Monday is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law.

So what’s next? A direct right to vote? One vote per employee, cast by the top officers of the corporation?

Please join Public Citizen’s campaign to take away individuals’ rights from corporate bosses.
