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.

Another Day in the USA

GM gets kudos for repaying a government loan with other taxpayer money.

The governor of Arizona signs a bill that requires immigrants to carry papers and authorizes cops to demand those papers of anyone they suspect of being in the country without government permission. Obama said the new law demonstrates the need for comprehensive "immigration reform" at the national level. Leading proposals include the requirement that all workers carry biometric identification.

Have a good weekend.
