SORT BY Relevancy
As candidates ponder strategies to end violence and bring economic opportunities to depressed urban communities, many are proposing to increase the police presence in high crime areas. But given the recent high profile shooting deaths of citizens at the hands of police, will residents of low income communities feel safer or more endangered by an increase of police? What can really transform urban communities - elected leadership that can initiate new and creative ideas to generate a prosperous economy? Or the launching of a paramilitary force that mturns every low income community into a police state? Does anybody believe that those who choose to commit unlawful acts would do something else if given viable options for survival? Is rehabilitation possible? Or is police confrontation inevitable? today, more candidates discuss their plans to resolve the crises of crime and poverty. Rev. Cassandra Harris, candidate for Alderman of the 18th Ward in Chicago, discusses her candidacy. What will be used to change urban communities, the Ballot or the Bullet?

Today on "It's My House" we shall be discussing "voting distinctions". Most people only know about "Ballot Box" voting, however many people do not know about "Access/Vested Interest Voting". When you Ballot Box vote you have no say so on issues BEFORE you vote and you can only cast (1) vote every election cycle. In addition you are restricted to a physical geographic location.
When you "Access Vote"........aka.........."Vested Interest" voting you are not restricted to physical locations or just (1) vote. You can "vote" in many ways, which gives you "access" which is something that the average Ballot Box voter never has.
MA is not CA, but this elwection at least, we get a plethora of ballot questions. In our case, the excess is four votes that qualified for Nov. 4th.
Tune in for truth and knowledge (at least in our best cuts).
Three questions have roaring proponents and opponents. Legally granting earned sick time for employees is not so controversial; in fact, doing that seems like enacting child-labor laws. The others are hot.
Question 1 is in the Taxachusetts fantasy world. It would stop the law that index gas taxes to inflation. The don't-tax-me-bro crowd really wants this.
Questino 2 would expand our low-rent nickel bottle depost to include non-carbonated water and such. The veberage folk predict the end of the world if that passes.
Question 3 would prohibit casinos in the commonwealth. The gaming (a.k.a gambl;ing) commission just awarded a license for one of three. The drama continues.
The airways are clogged. Mailers clutter doors and slots. Rhktoric is sizzling. You might not be surprised to learn that we have opinions.

State laws mandating these public-owned broadband networks get voter approval through referendum campaigns used to mean near-certain death for any project. Kiss those days goodbye! Meet the winners who have turned the tide.
November 4, EIGHT towns and counties all passed ballot initiatives to return the authority to pursue broadband to their constituents. With 70% or more of the vote.

At the local level, is broadband now a bipartisan issue?

What happened to the giant telcos and cable companies?
What comes next for these communities?

We assume that because a system is electronic, it must be honest, after all, how can a machine lie? Well, the fact of the matter is, machines are programmed by people, and people DO lie. Is it possible the voting machines have been programmed to lie on Election Day? Is it possible some people who served in public office were never really elected? Dr. Lora Chamberlain reveals some shocking facts about the Election Day process. How would you feel if you discovered that some of your elected officials actually cheated to get in office? Dr. Chamberlain explains how we can protect our vote and prevent the wrong people from seizing power.
Marijuana legalization measures have been a mixed bag of good and bad for medical marijuana patients. With California most likely to have a legalization initiative on the ballot in 2016, legalization proponents want to work with medical marijuana patients to ensure that their rights are protected under any marijuana legalization initiatives that are on the ballot.

It is Time for U.S. Term LImits - Citizen Legislators NOT Career Politicians!
Guest: Nick Tomboulides, Executive Director of U.S. Term Limits since 2013, overseeing its national grassroots activism efforts in support of a constitutional amendment to term limit the U.S. Congress. Nick also serves as Editor of the Term Limits National Blog at TermLimits.Org.
U.S. Term Limits has been fighting for term limits at all levels of government since 1992. U.S. Term Limits played a key role in enacting term limits by ballot initiative on 15 state legislatures and 23 congressional delegations, the latter being thrown out by a 1995 Supreme Court decision. Today, USTL’s main focus is on enacting a constitutional amendment to term limit the entire U.S. Congress to no more than three House terms and two Senate terms.

Thomas Jefferson wanted Term Limits
"General Washington set the example of voluntary retirement after eight years. I shall follow it, and a few more precedents will oppose the obstacle of habit to anyone after a while who shall endeavor to extend his term. Perhaps it may beget a disposition to establish it by an amendment of the Constitution." --Thomas Jefferson to J. Taylor, 1805.
"I apprehend that the total abandonment of the principle of rotation in the offices of President and Senator will end in abuse." --Thomas Jefferson to E. Rutledge, 1788.
"If the principle of rotation be a sound one, as I conscientiously believe it to be with respect to this office, no pretext should ever be permitted to dispense with it, because there never will be a time when real difficulties will not exist and furnish a plausible pretext for dispensation." --Thomas Jefferson to H. Guest, 1809.
