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.

Media Bias, Anyone?


First, NBC News admitted they mischaracterized the 911 tapes in the Florida shooting that has dominated the media. Then, ABC News indicated that the police video did, after all, show there were gashes on the back of George Zimmerman’s head.

Now, CNN has indicated that its earlier analysis many have been incorrect — it now appears the 911 tapes do NOT indicate that Zimmerman used a racial slur.

In light of all this media backtracking, you might be interested in reading Larry Pratt’s column in U.S. News & World Report, where he points out other facts that have been mostly ignored by the media in regard to this case.
