A recent scientific study by Princeton and Northwestern universities, which has gone somewhat under reported in the mainstream media, concludes that the US is now a fully fledged oligarchy.

The paper, entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups and Average Citizens, notes that America is no longer even a Democracy, which begs the question, how far removed is the country from being the Republic envisioned and painstakingly established by Benjamin Franklin and the founding fathers.

Ever been out to lunch with an economic royalist, (Republican), and watch them mentally take notes about the service, food, and drink as they search desperately for a reason not to tip?

Science Proves That Nothing Will Ever Change Republican Minds

Science Proves That Nothing Will Ever Change Republican Minds

The purpose of this article is not to argue that speech is not money, but to point out that there is science that proves regardless the original purpose of the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech, the Koch 5 are convinced that when the Constitution’s Framers devised the First Amendment’s free speech guarantee, they meant it was heresy to limit campaign donations; nothing will ever change their minds. So say scientists at Yale and Dartmouth Universities, among others, who studied an occurrence known as “motivated reasoning” that demonstrates the Koch 5 cannot be trusted to ignore their Republican affiliations, personal politics, or loyalty to the Koch brothers to decide cases according to what the law does or does not allow because “their brains simply are not capable of such disinterested reasoning.”

Reasoning with political, religious, or zealots of any stripe is, I guess, as productive as teaching a cat to fetch.

Jon Stewart Crushes Sean Hannity's Hypocrisy, Cliven Bundy's Idiocy (Video)

Cliven Bundy has violated federal law, courts have continually sided with the federal government in this matter, and his only “argument” seems to be that he doesn’t recognize the United States federal government therefore he doesn’t believe he should have to pay the fees. Stewart showed a clip of Cliven Bundy riding around carrying an American flag and then said, “If you reject the American federal government, at least have the decency of creating your own damn flag.” - See more at: http://www.forwardprogressives.com/jon-stewart-crushes-sean-hannitys-hypocrisy-cliven-bundys-idiocy/#sthash.3zgMDluB.dpuf

Kentucky Inmate Starved To Death

Kentucky Inmate Starved To Death

Hiland said the Corrections Department used Embry's death as an excuse to fire him so that Correct Care Solutions could fill his $164,554-a-year job more cheaply. Since firing Hiland last month, the state has given the Corrections Department's medical chief, Douglas Crall, direct oversight of medical care at the penitentiary. The state has also hired the company on a one-year contract worth $14.8 million to provide nurses for all 12 of Kentucky's prisons.
