R3publicans:  Why the Public Must Revolt Over Eminent Domain

Only democratic pressure can fight government abuse, as a recent case in Idaho demonstrates.

By PHIL HAUNSCHILDSeptember 14, 2018

Most of the time, Boise State University’s claim to fame is its blue turf football field.

But now BSU is garnering attention for something very different: its attempt to seize private land through eminent domain. The reason? It wants to build a baseball stadium for a team that does not yet exist. This has sparked outrage from the public, which sees it as not only exacerbating the community’s housing affordability crisis, but showing just how unimportant private property is in Boise.

  There are 62 clinics in Oklahoma known to be willing & confident to treat ill patients with the newest ‘old medicines’ coming back to Oklahoma. That’s a very small fraction of the entire medical community.  In June the voters strongly approved medical marijuana(cannabis) as a medicine that doctors should be able to utilize at their own discretion, and with oversight from the state physicians boards. Family Practice physicians are especially important in this area of…

R3publicans:  The Government -- Liability for Thee But Not for Me

Why are those who work for the state never held accountable for the damage they inflict?

By James BovardJuly 26, 2018

Few Americans recognize the Yukon-sized legal rights void in their daily lives. I was recently reminded of this hard fact after encountering what appeared to be an anti-tank spike left over from the battle of Stalingrad in a government parking lot. Unfortunately, government’s promise to serve also routinely conveys a license to harm.

​On August 29, 2018, Eric Levits, writing for the New York Times, declared that Oklahoma teachers had purged the State House of their enemies. He wasn’t wrong. The preceding night, in run-off elections across Oklahoma, conservative GOP legislators who had voted against tax increases as a way to fund teacher pay raises were defeated. For the first time in Oklahoma history, educators came together in a force that couldn’t be reckoned with and fol […]

Sooner Politics:  House Democrats Call For Special Session On Medical Cannabis Enactment

   Last July I met privately with the House Democrat leader, Steve Kouplen. I thanked him for stepping up to the effort to add some sensible structure to the statutes passed by the people.  Rep. Kouplen’s response was a bit surprising. He was quite pessimistic that anything would come out of these meetings.  That was July. Now it’s September and while Oklahoma  legislators have a lot more knowledge of the  medicines and the industry […]

R3publicans/Paul Craig Roberts: Armageddon Rides In The Balance

For some time I have pointed out the paradox of the American liberal/progressive/left being allied with the CIA, FBI, military/security complex and deep state. Now leftist Ann Garrison has noticed the paradox of this alliance. She concludes that the left has lost its mind. https://www.globalresearch.ca/we-love-the-cia-or-how-the-left-lost-its-mind/5653450

Indeed, it has.

Out of its hatred of Trump the left has united with the forces of evil and war that are leading to conflict with Russia. The left’s hatred of Trump shows that the American left has totally seperated from the interests of the working class, which elected Trump. The American left has abandoned the working class for the group victimizations and hatreds of Identity Politics. As Hillary put it, the working class comprises the “Trump deplorables.” The Democratic Party, like the Republicans, represents the ruling oligarchy.
