Weiner and the Washington Cesspool

Washington exists to prove that religion, family values and even patriotism corrupt as well. Add a dash of "conservatism" and no toddler is safe without a titanium chastity belt. Sex scandals in Washington are old news and Weinergate seems to be way below par.

The Day America Outlawed Democracy

That's what has led to the current disaffection by both liberals and conservatives toward government. The American people can sense their rights slipping away, but they have yet to come to terms with what is actually going on. They have yet to realize that congressional gridlock is a convenient way of denying them their rights. They have also yet to recognize that the majority in the senate is allowing the minority to abuse of the filibuster procedure because both parties are in collusion. The Republican filibuster provides cover for the Democratic majority for failing to enact, or greatly watering down, legislation being demanded by the people, but neither party wants to enact.

`All the free speech big money can buy’

Despite the public's epidemic disgust with politicians, now would be a splendid time to run for office in this country. That's because the U.S. Supreme Court has made it infinitely easier for candidates to sell themselves to special interests, who in return will peddle those candidates to voters.
