How modern Liberals view Economic Justice

How modern Liberals view Economic Justice

By Jim Sullivan The term “liberal” has a four centuries long history from the Enlightenment through today, and involves philosophies ranging from “classical liberalism,” which would be considered conservative by today’s standards, to “modern liberalism” based on the ideas and policies of Franklin D. Roosevelt.  Since we live in the modern age, we use the […]

U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman Townhall- August 25, 2013

U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman Townhall- August 25, 2013

Viewpoint By Michael Greer What exactly are Townhalls for?  Are they for members of Congress to hear from their constituents?  Or are they for members of Congress to pontificate, link spin and obfuscate?  Apparently Congressman Brad Sherman thinks the latter. Sherman spent the first 25 minutes wasting time.  He introduced his staff and had his […]

Viewpoint: Do Schools Teach Our Children to Think?

Viewpoint: Do Schools Teach Our Children to Think?

By Resa Steindel Brown An unexamined paradigm, mind or belief embedded in our culture, pilule is that school teaches us to think. But does it really? We assume that when we see our children buried in an overwhelming avalanche of textbooks, medical study notes, homework, and tests, some thinking is going on. We watch as our […]

Viewpoint: Gender-neutral facilities mandated in California schools

Viewpoint: Gender-neutral facilities mandated in California schools

By Debra Tash Randy Thomasson, from SaveCalifornia.com, called the new law signed by Governor Brown allowing cross gender use of school bathrooms, “insanity.”  We would call it a lawyer’s dream come true.  The State of California in its rush to be politically correct and gender neutral just invited every school district across the state to […]

Viewpoint: Liberal Pundit Slams Surveillance Policy

Viewpoint: Liberal Pundit Slams Surveillance Policy

By George Miller Anyone tracking what passes for MainStream “news” today could scarcely fail to notice the furor over NSA and other government extensive surveillance, not only of foreign terrorists, domestic terrorits and criminals- but EVERYONE. Yes, at this time it is evident that nearly all phone calls and electronic communications are being monitored. What’s […]

Viewpoint: One single petition could end ObamaCare “HR 3590”

Viewpoint: One single petition could end ObamaCare “HR 3590”

By Nicholas E. Purpura Listening to talk radio, the topic of the day was the “Death Panels,” and, yes, there is a death panel that not even Congress has the authority override in the current legislation. It’s time for a wake-up call! Obama-care was ruled unconstitutional, not once, but twice! Thus far not a single […]

Protect the environment with creativity, not taxes

Protect the environment with creativity, not taxes

Viewpoint By Eric Eisenhammer Most Californians want to do their part for the environment, but many cannot afford to pay higher taxes.  Unfortunately, a misguided proposal now making its way through the Legislature would override consumer choice in energy and housing while opening the door to new taxes and eminent domain abuse. This bill, Senate Bill […]

Viewpoint: Who Cares About Homeowners?

Viewpoint: Who Cares About Homeowners?

By Jon Coupal One would think that last year’s passage of Proposition 30, which gave California the highest income tax and sales tax rates in America, would satiate politicians’ appetite for even higher taxes – if even for a moment.  No such luck.  Not only are legislators vigorously promoting changes to Proposition 13 that would […]

Viewpoint: The Death of Shame

Viewpoint:  The Death of Shame

By Michael Greer In March New York had a public service campaign against teen pregnancy.  They put up posters all over the city with toddlers on them saying such things as,  “I have a greater chance of growing up in poverty if my Mom is a teenager” and “Got a good job? It cost thousands […]

This is Obama’s America

This is Obama’s America

Viewpoint, By Michael Greer   Are we having fun yet? Before Obama was elected polls showed 79% of White Americans thought race relations were good and so did 63% of Black Americans.  Now, 5 years after Obama’s election 52% of White Americans think race relations are good and only 38% of Black Americans.  Why is […]
