Ruminations of the Easily Amused for August 18 2009

All right. Have to be cracking on some must-dos for the rest of the week. But first, the ruminations.

Wonder what will happenif public schools actually decide to have Bible classes without clear direction. I'll bet a bunch are scared because of lawsuits waiting to happen. I'm with the crowd that says it ought to be more of a religious history or Bible as literature class.

Students in Texas-Go for commended, except really TAKS is only to see if you minimally pass.

How much money, including corporate money, ought to be able to be used to influence elections? Supreme Court to rehear campaign financing law .Don't get rolled!

Once upon a time, corporate titans bankrolled our elections with no limits. There were no social safety nets, no real labor laws, and no voting rights for most Americans. There were the haves and have nots.

This fall, a century of modest limits on corporate influence in politics could be completely rolled back, crushing progress on health care, the environment, energy, economic recovery … on everything!

The Supreme Court on September 9 hears a case, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, that reopens the question of unlimited corporate money in our elections. In a stunning move, the Court will reach back and reconsider two other pivotal campaign finance cases settled long ago. The potential result? A century-old pillar of campaign finance doctrine could be swept away.

Never thought of it this way. Gitmo is the only US Military base located in a communist country.

Porf of Acre conflict. I saw that movie Kingdom something or other about Saladin. Interesting history.

What about those RFID tags that are REQUIRED in passports now?
