Issues We Still Care About

SUPPORT SJ RES 19 - a Joint Senate Amendment that is expected to come up for a vote this year [2014] to undo the harm caused by Citizens United. Sign this petition now.

DEMAND OBAMA RELEASE THE EXECUTION MEMOS. Just as the public demanded the release of the Bush Administration's Torture Memos to expose the ludicrous rationale behind their secret torture program, we too must demand to know the legal rationale for a program that allows our president to unilaterally choose to deprive someone of life and liberty - without the victim even being charged with a crime. Sign FireDogLake's petition demanding the Obama administration produce the internal memos and legal justification for their targeted execution program.

SUPPORT THE StopWatching.Us CAMPAIGN. The StopWatching.Us campaign aims to turn grass-roots anger at secret surveillance into political action.

SUPPORT CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT DOESN'T GIVE PERSONHOOD TO CORPORATIONS. We have got to send a constitutional amendment to the states that says simply and straightforwardly what everyone - except five members of the United States Supreme Court - understands: Corporations are not people with equal constitutional rights. Corporations are subject to regulation by the people. Corporations may not make campaign contributions -- the law of the land for the last century. And Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances. Sign Sen. Sander's petition.

SUPPORT PFAW'S GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN. People for the American War want to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution which would nullify the worst part of the USSC's decision by granting Congress the authority to limit corporate influence in elections. The Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. FEC threatens to tear apart the fabric of our democracy and grant powerful corporations unfettered influence in our political process. Tell congressional leaders to support and pass a constitutional amendment granting Congress the authority limit corporate influence in elections without delay. Sign PFAW's online petition now.

PROSECUTE BUSH CRIMES. Sign the petition at the Center for Constitutional Rights requesting various Bush officials be prosecuted for committing criminal acts. Also sign their letter to Sen. Leahy telling him that criminal prosecutions are necessary. Make sure you do both! Also download their factsheet to share with others [256k] and read the list that includes 182 people and organizations calling for prosecutions of top officals.

Help Us Remove Condi Rice from the College Football Playoff Committee: We would appreciate your help in our effort to get Condoleeza Rice removed from the College Football Playoff Committee. You can read the email we sent them and find all the contact information with links you will need using our reference page.

Also please check out our parody of Sen. Smuck Schumer's rejection of the Iran agreement. We hope you will choose to read it all because it is not only entertaining but also very informative and on point. Many of the items we identify can be used to convince your congressperson to support this deal. Also you can view our new humor image called "Tiump the Insult Comic Dog."

New articles added from the past week that discuss: Does Israel still care about justice and what will they do to eradicate their own home grown terrorists?, Obama addressing climate change and boldly selling the Iran agreement - is our "special relationship" with Israel being challenged as it should be?, pollution gone awry and how it adversely affects even rich countries, Republican hypocrisy on Iran and why the Iran deal must be approved , some whacky moments from the GOP debate and how FOX News aided this clown show, why the GOP has nothing to say about all the mass shootings, plus lots more in Sounding Off. You might also ienjoy our large selection of progressive political humor, our interactive projects plus our free music downloads. --RJ Crane, editor

Republican Hypocrisy on Iran
"The exaggerations and half-truths that some Republicans are using to derail President Obama‘s important and necessary nuclear deal with Iran are beyond ugly."

Congress Should Look Beyond the Gas Tax
"Lawmakers in Washington are so scared of raising the inadequate federal gas tax that they keep passing short-term bills to move money from other taxes to fund transportation projects."

Bad Decision by Senator Schumer
"Given Mr. Schumer’s wrong-headed and irresponsible decision, Democrats may want to reconsider whether he is the best candidate to be their next leader in the Senate, a job he desperately wants."

This is how the clowns took over: The sad history leading to the spectacle of a Fox News debate starring front-runner Donald Trump
The road to Fox and Trump was paved by decades of right-wing loathing of the media, facts and reality

By Heather Cox Richardson

Autism in the insular world of ultra-Orthodox Judaism: “There were superstitions and things that God knows how many other mothers had to deal with”
Salon talks to author Judy Brown about her new memoir, "This Is Not a Love Story"

By Sara Scribner

Jon Stewart’s Legacy
"But over the next 16 years, Stewart redefined that mandate, and in so doing challenged journalism in the public arena for the responsibility of educating adult Americans on the truths of their day, regardless of ratings and sensationalism."

“I had no idea what I was getting into”: Glenn Greenwald’s security guru on Edward Snowden’s secrets, Obama’s surveillance state
Micah Lee remembers first emails he received from Snowden and explains why Internet privacy is everyone's business

By Elsa Givan

What Is Nature Worth to You?

Exposing Abuse on the Factory Farm
"While most Americans enjoy eating meat, it is hard to stomach the often sadistic treatment of factory-farmed cows, pigs and chickens."

Dozens of racing horses die every week because of drug abuse
Performance-enhancing drugs impact more than just humans

By Wayne Pacelle, The Dodo
"There is cause for hope that Congress may finally do something to impose some standards on horse racing and empower a non-governmental, independent organization to stop the widespread race-day doping of horses — a contributing factor to perhaps as many as 24 horses dying every week on American racetracks."

Scott Walker destroyed his state: Wisconsin’s economic cautionary tale
Taxing the poor to subsidize massive corporations is calamitous in the long term. Who would've guessed?

By David Sirota
"Had the taxpayer largesse significantly boosted Wisconsin’s economy, perhaps the financial management problems and the allegations of cronyism could be downplayed. But Wisconsin’s economy has suffered under Walker."

Growing Momentum to Repeal Cuban Embargo

G.O.P. Candidates and Mass Shootings
"Despite the repeated horror of mass shootings in churches, movie theaters and schoolrooms, the Republican candidates running for president are remarkably quiet about how they would deal with this most pressing public health challenge."

The Long History of Political Idiocy
"It’s tempting to rail against the media’s ability to elicit and amplify such stupidity. But none of this is new. Politicians have always resorted to dumb claims, blatant insults, bold exaggerations and baldfaced lies to gain press coverage and win votes."

President Obama’s Tough, Achievable Climate Plan
"It imposes the first nationwide limits on carbon dioxide pollution from power plants, the source of 31 percent of America’s total greenhouse gas emissions."

Do Israelis Still Care About Justice?
"And where are those settlers in their skull caps who instantly filled this square when demonstrations were held against the demolition of illegal settlements — but who are now choosing not to demonstrate against the murder of babies? Do they think that, when it comes to Palestinians and the L.G.B.T. community, the commandment 'Thou shalt not kill' has been erased from their set of stone tablets?

Evoking the Wrath of Nature
By Chris Hedges
"This strange confluence, where those who hike to the peak and those who ride in cars and trains meet in uneasy silence, is emblematic of the clash of cultures that threatens to doom the planet and the human species."

By Walter Shapiro

The Logic of Illlogic: Narrow Self-Interest Keeps Israel’s “Existential Threats” Alive
By Andrew Levine

Why the Voting Rights Act Is Once Again Under Threat

Obama Takes On Opponents of the Iran Deal

The Supreme Court’s Gap on Race and Juries
By Linda Greenhouse
"There are so many troubling issues surrounding race and the criminal justice system these days that it is easy to forget a longstanding problem: the exclusion of African-Americans from juries."

America Deserves a Servant Leader
"We cannot afford more false promises, slogans, theatrics and fool’s gold. Our nation has been profoundly damaged by a lack of civility and courage in Washington, where leaders of both parties have abdicated their responsibility to forge reasonable compromises to expand the economy, rebuild our infrastructure, improve schools, transform entitlement programs and so much more."

Does America Still Believe in Diplomacy?

"To me, the bottom line is this: If we move on now without fully documenting what occurred, without acknowledging the betrayal of our values, and without determining whether or not any laws have been broken, we cannot help but validate all that has gone on before. If we look at the Bush record and conclude that the book should simply be closed, we will be tacitly approving both the documented abuses and the additional misdeeds we will have chosen to leave uncovered." --Rep.John Conyers Chair of House Judiciary Committe, D-MI, January 3 1, 2009, Huffingtonpost.com
