Our Institutions and Estates

Executive Branch -- Does it have too much power? Are its regulations warranted and just? Our Congress -- What bills should be proposed? What should pass? What about filibusters and such? Our Court -- What cases are pending? Are they deciding based on justice or prejudice? The States -- Where should their power bow to Federal jurisdiction?

    The press are our eyes and our ears. Mass media has greater control over our thoughts than most of us are aware, or will admit. John McCain's candidacy was resurrected by a fawning press. Al Gore was placed in a position from which the 2000 election could be stolen by the media's uncritical reporting of Republican slanders. Is the war going well or badly? You only know what you see on TV.

    It seems these days that our bedrooms are more heavily regulated than our businesses. Interior is in the mining business, Education preaches religion, HHS wants our women barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen, Veterans Affairs keeps 'em sick and wounded, and did I mention the Department of Justice?

    What bills should be offered? Which should pass? What about that power to declare war? And what should we do about filibusters, impeachment, and the confirmation of appointments?

    What racially bigoted goober or televangelist will Bush appoint to the court next? How much life support should we provide if John Paul Stevens falls ill (all of it, up to and including cloning, IMO)? What rulings to you think are right or wrong? And who should a Democratic president appoint? These questions affect all of us for the rest of our lives.

    Governor bothering you? How about some of those interesting state laws, like the ones allowing guns in schools or insurance companies to raid your bank accounts? Trouble with the local constabulary? Is there anything anybody is doing right these days?
