Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Decapitating the U.S. Military

Decapitating the U.S. Military

BY ALAN CARUBA Many Americans were shocked by the Islamic State video of the beheading of the photo journalist James Foley. Perhaps they had already forgotten the decapitation of Wall Street Journal journalist, Daniel Pearl in 2002. Most certainly, the memory of the murder of nearly 3,000 on [...]

Do Property Rights Exist in Our Day?

Do Property Rights Exist in Our Day?

BY T.F. STERN A curious question, “Do property rights exist in our day”?  The reason I asked had to do with recent observations on the social medium Facebook.  Most of the articles that I commented on recently had to do with property rights in one way or another; but the issues associated [...]

What is the Difference Between the DNC and the CPUSA?

BY ALAN CARUBA On the home page of the Communist Party USA it says “A better and peaceful world is possible—a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA.” No, it’s not Socialism which is a watered down [...]

Big Fat Lies About Fat

Big Fat Lies About Fat

BY ALAN CARUBA Americans are obsessed with fat; either with eating it or being it. We’ve been told that we’re too fat and we’re told that eating fat is bad for you. Being fat is your own business. You’ll feel better if you lose a few pounds, but you will enjoy your next meal if it has [...]

Yelling Fire in a Theater

Yelling Fire in a Theater

BY T.F. STERN The more we hear about what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri, the more it would appear that this was a Crisis that could be used by the Obama administration to further divide our nation.   ‘Low information voters’ turned Ferguson into a war zone, rioting, looting and burning [...]

A Suspect Matching the Description

Jimmy Carter’s Love for Terrorists

Iraq is an American War

Iraq is an American War

BY ALAN CARUBA Like many Americans I advocated ending our participation in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. I was wrong. Being war-weary is no excuse for not realizing that we are in a very long war with the enemies of civilization and reluctant to being fully engaged in it. On Monday, [...]

Please, Mr. President, Stay on Vacation

Please, Mr. President, Stay on Vacation

BY ALAN CARUBA When the President spent three of a recent week’s five working days fund raising for the Democratic Party people, even the press took notice. On August 9 he began a two-week vacation in a Martha’s Vineyard mansion and I’d like to suggest that he just stay on vacation for the [...]

It’s about the Money, Not the Climate

It’s about the Money, Not the Climate

BY ALAN CARUBA Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), the Irish poet and dramatist, wrote “Pray don't talk to me about the weather. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else.” These days, when some world leader or politician speaks of the [...]

Islamic Slaughters and Short Memories

Fitting Keys for Repo Cars
