Rev. Peter Laarman: A safe society is first and foremost a just society. In that respect we have an awfully long way to go. Let’s not waste any more time.
Vicotria Defrancesco Soto: The GOP’s split mindset regarding Latinos and immigration is what will likely prevent the president from crossing off immigration reform from his 2013 to-do list.
Wayne Williams: Republicant’s along with fellow greedy and obscenely wealthy Libertarians and Corporatists, selfishly view the world as a ship of fools to dominate with fear-mongering.
Anthony Samad: The CCRC now claims that Blacks are OVER represented in the state’s Congressional delegation. Their mindset is being reflected in the maps released so far.
Tom Hayden: The fact is that Democratic constituencies and leaders, responding to overwhelming public sentiment against the war, have been uniting in recent weeks behind a call for “substantial and significant” troops reductions and a transfer of war funds to job creation at home.
Steve Hochstadt: These opportunist birthers don’t believe in anything, except that they can promote conservative causes and their own public profile by doubting the facts.
Kathy Green: I think you were just doing a show to satirize rallies. But, lucky for us sitters up here on Mt. Hugey, it may have inadvertently done exactly what we spend billions of dollars a year trying to do—convince a lot of people to sit this one out.
Wayne Williams: With Voter Owned, Auditable, Transparent and Verifiable Elections, voters will come out in larger numbers as they have more confidence in their government. More viable candidates of all races and genders will run for office, and most likely the cost of elections will go down because the public will be more educated, involved and aware.
Ivan Eland: Although Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano’s stance that “the system” worked buckled under withering ridicule, she was right—but only if the non-governmental aspects of that system are included. The government’s performance and after-incident measures are ridiculous and even ill-advised.
