America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

George Bush's Afghanistan

Developments in the newly free and democratic Afghanistan are awe-inspiring. A man who converted from Islam to Christianity has (for now) escaped the death penalty for his offense, thanks to testimony from family members that he is mentally ill.

Words fail me.

A touch of cynicism, a touch of sarcasm, stir. Serve chilled.
