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.

Aye, Matey!

I could not be more enthusiastic in recommending Jesse Walker's explanation of what's going on with Somalia and piracy. Read it here and learn.

Here's South Park in case you missed it. Also, the 'pirates' were looking to make an exchange, and they had no more ammo. Extraordinary job indeed.
