Re: Past Recessions and the US Government

I don't feel confident enough to wholly agree or disagree with any of the positions. I will agree most strenuously with Corth's opinion that had things been allowed to go bankrupt, we would be in a stronger position today to grow. Both because of the steep descent of the economy and from the elimina...

Re: can't record a police officer in Illinois and Massachuse

I disagree that you can break the law and then expect not to be charged or punished. I agree you should disobey an unjust order.

The concept of civil disobedience is to break the law and accept the consequences as a matter of protest. I agree with civil disobedience.
