You Must Watch This To Understand America in 2016

I am struck by the intelligence and poise of these young people. I am concerned for my country. My own experience with the Secret Service at Presidential events has been nothing but one of respect and professionalism. Are the agents being spoken of here actual Secret Servicemen?

Buzz for 2-23-16 (It's crazy out there)

Our state GOP continues to take local decisions away from locals and turn them over to people who live other places, specifically our TN legislators who obviously have taken to that notion of "Central Planning" over local control. In this case it is the will of Nashville taxpayers that they be able to spend a portion of their tax dollars to create jobs for Nashvillians. This is obviously not fair to non-Nashvillians who want that Nashville money for themselves. It is interesting to see our GOP controlled legislature skip right over socialism, which they would denounce to a person) and go off the deep end to communism. Yep, central planning is the great fallacy of Communism and yet here we are seeing our legislators embrace the concept. To be fair, this only happens when local governments try to keep tax money in their local communities to boost local economies and provide local jobs.

President Obama...Appoint a Warrior Not an Appeaser

I'm calling on President Obama to appoint a strongly Progressive person to the United States Supreme Court...Someone who will read the Constitution as protecting "We, the People" rather than twisting it to serve corporate masters and the politically powerful... To place before the Senate a person who will frighten conservatives with an unyielding dedication to "Truth, Justice, and the American way"...Someone who understands that free speech is not money spread so unequally in an increasingly oligarchical society. 

Surely there is a person of judicial stature who believes in facts and that truth and honesty and ethics are qualities to be revered and that Supreme Court decisions are not trinkets to be traded for luxury hunting trips or lobbying fees to a spouse or speaking fees for appearances before secretive right wing organizations.

For the sake of our Nation appoint that person! Please do not forsake our children's future by appointing someone who appears moderate to extremists.

 President Obama, give us a lion not a lamb!
