SORT BY Relevancy
Interview with Jerrery Orenstein, Ph.D.author "Fixing American Government" published January, 2015.
American government is broken. There is gridlock in Washington and in many state capitals and voters are apathetic and angry. Democracy is under siege by the corrupting influence of money in politics and by those who put ideological purity ahead of good public policy.How did this happen? What can we do about it?Fixing American Government is one political scientist-turned-journalist’s answer. It analyzes the roots of the problem and prescribes remedies that are practical and consistent with American political culture and traditions.It is a must-read for political activists of any stripe, citizens who care about our political system and those who want to see American government work again.
As we look at our nation at Valentine’s Day, 2105, we observe that today’s United States of America has evolved to be far more democratic than it was in 1787, with the enfranchisement of women, the abolition of property qualifications for voting and the direct election of the Senate as democratic milestones. There is clear and present evidence that this partial democratic evolution has been a major factor in the nation’s greatness and appeal.
Precisely because the elements of democracy that we do possess in our political system has stood us in such good stead, we should continue our evolution toward perfecting our system of government by becoming even more democratic than we are. We need to eliminate malapportionment, equalize the voices of those who are not billionaires and think long and hard about the meaning of the term general election, for starters.
When you're working on what happens WHEN an unsolved problem has already caused challenging behavior, you're focused on the aftermath of the problem. So you don't want to work on WHEN...you want to paddle upstream and start solving problems BEFORE they cause those behaviors that are floating downstream.

Our queston of the day is: Is Ignorance The Problem Or White Supremacy ?
Today on "It's My House" we have a very special (law study group).........the Nat Turner 2015 vs Underground Railroad Law Clinic.
Nat Turner was a slave who started a riot, however it was not well planned with an "end game" in mind. It cost him his life as well as the lives of many others. Mr. Turner was basically LAW ILLITERATE. Living during the same time frame..........there where other slaves who found ways to become free by becoming LAW LITERATE and when they "applied" their knoweldge the found freedom. Many people (slaves and former slaves) became "law literate" or "legally aware" via the Underground Railroad.
Rioting is a REACTIVE way to protest. Becoming Law Literate is a PROACTIVE way to protest.
Benjamin "Paps" Singleton was a former slave who become "law literate" and became a land baron.
Some of the HBCU's Historically Black Colleges and Universities protested by establishing schools and universities.
Many have had issues with Christianity due to what is termed the "theodicy problem." That is to say, if God is all powerful and all loving, then why is there evil in the world? Some would claim that since evil exists, God must be all loving, but not all powerful--or all powerful and not all loving. Philosophers claim to have solved the theodicy problem. However, the solution was already provided in the book of Job. In this episode, Pastor Brian examines the theodicy problem as it relates to the book of Job.
Many people, including some health professionals, consider ADD/ADHD an excuse for bad behavior. However, as Health Guru, Beverly Nadler will explain, brain imaging technology confirms it as a serious disorder affecting millions of children and adults.
Left untreated, it can lead to a life of misery, including alcoholism, drug addiction and even crime. Did you know that many highly intelligent and successfully functioning people have this condition? If you suspect that you or anyone you know has this disorder, you should listen to this program. It could change your life! http://www.beverlynadler.com
Some of us think and deeply believe that if we complain long enough we will somehow magically solve the problem or issue we been complaining about - not realizing that in order to complain about an issue it is necessary to focus on the very same issue from the perspective of what's wrong rather that how we would prefer it to be. .....
Does this outlook typically create added problems or actual solutions?

"Why can't I be rich? I hate having a cash flow problem" is something that many people have said in jest. Although in jest, the underlying spark that created the smoke screen was very, very, very real. The feeling of lack is real. If the law of attraction is right in I can have what I want. I can manifest what I believe and dream of. If the Universal Law is correct and all the other spiritual doctorines that are so casually bandied about, why do I have a constant cash flow problem?
Understand why you don't have the funds that you are wanting is easy, it's what to do about it that may present a challenge.
Join me Dr. Wendy Dearborne choice expert and life coach and Olivia Lashley expressions coach and artist as we look at what you can do about creating the wealth that you are wanting.
