Quoting Diana3316:

Rok, when you fail to ask for what you want....it is for sure you will not get it.  A cynical, defeatest attitude will achieve nothing!

 

If we the people want the money OUT of our politics .....and DEMAND it....they will vote for it or lose their jobs!!! We hire people who WILL vote for it. 

 

 

IF NOTHING CHANGES....THEN NOTHING CHANGES! 

 

If you don't see the clear and present danger of letting big corporations write our legislation and run our country...then you don't know anything about history!  ISIL ruthlessness is nothing compared to this money worshiping bunch!



We have agreed in the past that reform is needed.  Not only do we need to get big money out of politics but we also have to get rid of the career politicians like Biden.  He's spent 90% of his adult life as a politician and the other 10% dodging the Vietnam draft.  Election Finance reform and term limits might require a Constitutional Amendment but it's feckless to expect those who enjoy these perks to vote to get rid of them.  Leadership PACS are just plain bribery as is lobbying.

For the short period of time that Rome was a Republic, Senators were chose via lottery, maybe that would work.

Money for political campaigns is mostly spent for TV ads.  I've long wondered why, if those airwaves truly are public, should anyone have to pay private companies to use them for such a purpose.  Buying back use of putatively public airwaves for a process that is the quiddity of maintaining the society we choose.  

Why doesn't government have it's own tax-funded broadcast channels?  They could be made accessible to citizens free of charge, but only if the programming would appeal to the general public.  This method would actually remove the money completely from the equation.

We sure have dropped from #1 in the world to well below middle of the pack in STEM proficiency.  You'd probably do best to research this yourself.  Many of those adults referred to in your poster are those who set the standards and the curricula for high school students.  Unfortunately none of them taught these subjects at the high school level.

 

Have you seen the New Math?

What people tend to forget is what is attached to these bills. Both sides are guilty of this. They all want to stay in power and be in control.

We need term limits but who in the hell in Washington will vote for that?

 

And yes I watch Fox!



Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives. President Ronald Reagan

Quoting 3345roc:

I don't watch Fox News... do you?  If you're bound by party loyalty and blinded by partisan ideologies you're just a follower bleeting your support for their idea du jour like lambs to slaughter.  The Left and the Right fight to win the power, influences, perks and riches that come with membership to their self anointed aristocracy.

 

 

I hope that nuance of "political theater" didn't go unnoticed.  This was a political stunt by the Dems to bolster their mid-term media blitz and it seems you bought it.   A Constitutional Amendment requires 67 Senators and two thirds of the House and then has to be ratified by 38 States.  Remember the ERA?  I doubt that 2/3rds of this  Clown Congress could agree on what day of the week it is.

Quoting 3345roc:

Just more political theater Diana.  Do you really think the Washington aristocracy will bite the hand that feeds them.  This bill hardly made it's way out of committee.  The Supreme Court ruled on this several years ago so this is just a p*ssing contest between branches of gov't.  The Dem Super Pacs outspend the Republicrats.  Washingtom has become irrelevant, the midterms have become irrelevant, Obama has become irrelevant.  Hillary is the poster child for crony capitalism and lives in the back pocket of Wall Street.

 

If you really want to get anything done you'll have to do it yourself.


Ahhh....yes...the Supreme Court.  All I can say is that if corporations are people, with freedom of speech and religious rights....I wish they would have to start paying taxes like the rest of us people!!

Quoting InfinityColumn:

I do believe this issue is consistent with what Jacques Attali, a French economist said, in an interview about a comparative study (Europe-US), I have recently listened to, that the main issue in the US is the disparity between riches and poors (all of what happened on Wall Street, Madoff, the mortgages chaos, etc.). A deep study in my opinion, because he reveals the high level of consequences in many other  important fields. 

 

On another note, but also maybe related, I don't see in here, anywhere, what Mr. President is facing now also as obstacles to eradicate the dangers we are facing with that "cancer": is this a taboo in here? 



Hi Infinity!!  So good to see you.  No, I don't think there is a taboo.  I have been buried under the stresses and tasks involved in putting my house up for sale in order to move closer to my mother.  No time to really debate issues of late.  Unfortunately, there don't seem to be many others interested in current event discussions.

Senate Republicans just killed the Democracy for All amendment, which would once again ban billionaires and corporations from buying elections and laws through unlimited campaign donations. How can anyone in good conscience vote for any of them in November?

*Stardate91014.3819*

This Republican denial ruse,reminds me of Robin William's take, on Obama&McCain's late  2012 Debates...Agree,Agree, But! Obama could Direct actions with Iraq, but went to Congress. Historical Debates happened in 2008; the Pullout Times of Afghan.& Iraq.Both parties agreed on 2013-2014,as a pullout window, The Iraq War was at the Urban Community Policeing phase, after the Surge. The Republicans(McConnell) want now, to use that move, as a reproach to Obama's Foreign Policy; though, The American People were quite sour of war, 2 years ago. Situations change; especially, with Mother Russia in the ARMSBZzzz. Russia has arteries in Syria. How many?

There is an upsurge of Russian Soldiers,coming back to their buryial, in their communities, in Russia...Ukraine? All had accidents...OK LOL! So, The world is littered with AK47's. Go Figure!

While the Saudi's dismember body parts in the Square, on Friday; They are upset at atrocities of ISIS. "Cut his clean hand off; watch him whither, for his crime. No societal uproar there! 

The Hague has a few issues with Russia. ISIS/ISIL is the first act in this Russian Tragedy. Will the American People sour, when Syria, and Russia are warned; in this Obama Speach to the Nation? These are massive sorte's, into Syria?Iraq didn't berth ISIS/ISIL; Syria did....As Israel watches.

This might hedge Israel/Iran relations. Though, the countries are night and day apart, Iran has joined the Group of denouncing Islamic Countries to ISIS/ISIL's atrocities; Lancing an interstitial Cyst of Islam Perception. Iran has history with a vast area of Nations. Who built the Mosque on the Temple Holy of Holy's in Jerusalem. Maybe, somthing will heal. Distant Cousin's fighting...HOOooo...

...Grab your popcorn. This action has a 2 year period. Let's see what Hillary will do Jan. 3,2017. Now, That will be a wicked, New Years Party, on the 1st(111700:00)!

...Ta Ta!...   ///*LV1*\\\ ...

Well...

We're pullin' out of Afghanistan 

AS primised; the Law of the Land

Back to US-BACK I STAN

Once again; Kurd's need a hand

 

Same ole' Soldiers, You will see

Change of Brand, Particularly

NATO Allies bind as a Pomegranate sea 

Spoiling all of Putin's glee

 

Assad's name; surely comes up

The vial contained within his cup

The vein's of Russia; don't disrupt

Strangle the Bear; claws will cut

 

Such, we know, as History

Of 911...;The Residual, SEE?

Nato Volunteeree Prob'ly

Psyche of the "Elite Militaryyy...!"

Well...Louisiana perculated a decision, toNOT identify same sex couples as joined in matrimony, and USSC law is bound to be altered from Meister VS Moore's(1879?) decision, to set minimum standards of matrimony; particularly, Man&Woman. Moore's widow was a squah,from Michigan, taken to wife from a tribe. Moore dies, and Moore's mother sells a piece of land, without the widows approval. Moore's mother challanged the Marriage. the basic idea of co-habitation, and voicing his coupling, made the Moores Married;plus the longevity, till his death. Some liberal States have already married GLTB couples. The general rule for a coupling is a Minister Of The Cloth, 2 witnesses, and,as support, a certificate. Most good marriage guests, number 50 up(Those SCotch Irish Canadian Winter Wedding's...Hooooo!)!

The couple in LA. have Due Process, and Discrimination in their favor. USSC Law is the Common Law,drawn from the purist of acceptance of combined societies. The 1st,4th,and 5th, especially the wording of LIBERTY, and PROPERTY; 5th. If someone wishes to exercize their liberty to someone else; OK...! Do Your Combo Charts.Learn Lot's!

 

As a sidebar; most thoughts go to the Sodom&Gomarrah story(Abraham, Lot); Much happen's in that Passage in Genesis. A deeper look at Sodom gives a Putrid Vialness outlook to the peope. You were a target,when entering the Gate. This went farther than being simply LGTB. All couples have social, personality issues within the relationship. I remember the scare of the Hemopheliacs, 1983. Roman bath's in Ole' San Franciscoooooo...Colonic's business boomed!

Sicero was Male Partnered, And, In the Roman Senate? Most thought Benjimin Franklin Gay; Not as I've seen. Some French are That Way!... OK...There is usually an artistic link to MM,FF...!

Where was I..(Page Flip)..K...MVSM...Acceptance...Age of Aquarius, Saturn Cleansing Scorpio (Mars, Pluto)...Done Deal!

 

Regresses(es?) from his Retractable,Robotic Suitcase Platform...

(Patent Pending)...CLOPClipcl.........ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzz...(-B///LV1\\\B-)
