    Absolutely, The Constitution is very specific (in the 14th Amendment) that the debt of the US government shall not be questioned . To do so would be a direct violation of the dictates of the US Constitution. If the US Constitution is not respected then we drop deeper into anarchy – a place that the extreme right appears to be more than comfortably.

    What are these fools thinking?

    Most of them don’t engage in thinking. Their small minds are made up, any thinking hurts their rodent size brains.

  • I see National Security as two rooms – a large one and a small one. In the small room are kept those items that should, by all measures, not be public knowledge. The big room, OTOH, contains all the crap that Congress creatures, agency heads, high ranking military and the ” financial elite” find to be embarrassing, evidence of incompetence or protecting them from the consequences of some of their questionable/illegal/unethical behavior. Or it could be just to “maintain public morale” - Trans: keep the children ignorant.

    Correct on hemp as a substitute for cotton (among other uses). Cotton is among the worst crops for the environment. Cotton requires 25% of the worlds fertilizer and 25% of the worlds pesticides. Hemp requires an insignificant percentage of both.
    Hemp fiber is as soft as cotton fiber and has a greater fiber strength. A sane society would consider hemp a treasure

    The full force of the arms manufactures and dealer’s lobbyists (NRA)will be screaming for laws preventing individuals from using 3D printers for home manufacturing of firearms – the weapons are crude now but if history shows refinements will follow in a very short time as will the forming materials used.
    I can’t imagine the NRA and gun lobbyist missing the consequences of this technology.

    But if Obama supports the idea, as history shows, the republicans would immediately reject it.
    We have a plant that grows damn near anywhere – can be a valuable source of income for farmers, has a multitude of uses and is currently imported from countries that are not so stupid. Somewhere along the line logic got thrown out the window in favor of the synthetics industries and pulp tree growers.

    I would think it would be near impossible to imagine (with any accuracy) what the future will be. First of all the technology, material sciences, and there is serious NASA research working on tech that will allow us to move great distances in a short time with violating the laws of physics (it works mathematically, as for reality … probably slim)- all could exist by 2113 Then there is nanotechnology which sits on the edge of a whole new, and barely imaginable, world.
    All one has to do is recognize the speed with which technology develops, mechanical, electronic, biological and etc. Was anyone predicting the smart phone in 1985?

  • Many conservatives support the legalization of pot, chief among them was conservative icon William F. Buckley. From a pure conservative point of view it should be a slam dunk. That they aren’t tells me they don’t even understand their own ideology basics.

  • There is little doubt that the FBI and other agencies are being selectively harsh toward crimes which involves only property. Their “eco-terrorist” (ET) campaign has to be assigned support staff, investigators and equipment the cost for all of that, in turn, results in underfunding and skimping on the personnel [asset reallocation] who are fighting against those whose intent is to kill as many as possible with their acts. WTF is wrong with that picture?
    Are the “ET’s” acts crimes? For the most part the answer is yes. Should they be tried and if found guilty – incarcerated? Yes! But, are they terrorist? Give me a frigging break.
    In any event it’s a local crime which should be investigated by the local police. The only reason the Feds can stick their noses in the investigation would be if was an interstate crime, if a government employee was a victim or is defined by the government as a crime of national security, crimes on federal property, Indian reservations or if a person is in a organization that has been “classified” as a terrorist organization, ergo, Eco Terrorists.

    A worst case scenario (for the repugs) would be that the convention was canceled and no one noticed.

  • That’s the rub. The states have every right to define who and who is not a legal voter FOR STATE AND LOCAL OFFICES. However, there should be no restictions on candidates for national office -President, Senators or House members. If a felon who has served their time is allowed to vote in Colorado and denied that right in Florida then there is a violation of equal rights.
    Voter suppression attacks the very core of American values and should be crushed in the name of the democracy we profess.

  • Why people continue to intrust their money to the big banks is beyond me. Credit unions, OTOH, do not create internal hedge funds or risk the depositor’s money in half baked financial crap; they do, however, provide the type of service and integrity one would expect a bank to have.
    Find a credit union and kick the big banks into the gutter.

  • Gosh! I sure hope this doesn’t effect Jamie’s bonus . But I have confidence that the board of directors will see what an irreplacable ASSet he is and reward him handsomely. Phhttt!!

  • The underlying issue, IMO, is that that the majority believe they have the right to deprive citizens of their basic rights. If the voters of a state vote to remove the rights of African Americans or not allowing women to vote it would not stand. The rights of gay and lesbian Americans should also be protected from the “will” of the people to deny them their rights.
    Equal rights is not subject to the Majority’s approval.

  • Couldn’t Mittens just put Grenell on the roof of his car and hope he doesn’t crap on the wind shield OR, even better, use his car to run over the hysterical right wing homophobes and actually stand for something.

    This is the guy that can be decisive on world issues as the leader of the most powerful country extant? Phhhttt!! If this incompetent ass, in some nightmare scenario, becomes President I’m going off grid in the Colorado wilds.

    It’s difficult to understand why the disastrous “trickle down” , “ job creators” memes are still given any credibility. The economic history of the US has demonstrated time and time again that they are bull crap and are, in fact, 180 degrees from what they claim. I challenge any economist (or reptilican) to offer just [...]

  • Even if Manning is guilty as sin ( which he appears to be) there is no excuse for keeping him in isolation when he hasn’t yet been convicted of anything.

    “but I’d still like to know what he was doing on the street at 23:00 .”

    My guess would be trolling for hookers.
