No Justice for “We the People”

The nomination of Chief Judge Merrick Garland by President Obama was sent to, and received by, the Senate on March 16, 2016. That’s two months ago, or about 60 days.

Do “We the People” have to Repeat History?

The Increasing Cost of Government

The mathematical postulate of the 80-20 Rule tells us twenty percent of the people in the United States are paying eighty percent of the tax burden. And they are paying upwards of 50 percent of their wages. While this is mathematically accurate, does it tell the whole story? According to the American Community Survey, annual median household income rose 1.3 percent in 2006 to $50,233.00. In “governmentese,” real median household income in the United States

Newtown Families File Law Suit

Nine families who lost a child or adult plus one teacher who was shot but survived the Sandy Hook massacre of 2012 have filed a complaint lawsuit against the companies that manufactured and sold the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle used in the devastating attack. The complaint faces an uphill battle because of an ill-conceived federal law designed to eliminate accountability against irresponsible companies and dealers who promote and sell guns.
