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.

Have We Won?

Cheryl found this sign (click to enlarge) at a store called Intellectual Property in downtown Austin. She couldn't resist.

The sign says, "Store Closing." Write your own caption.

I walk past that sign every day--never thought twice about it.

I never saw it myself. Cheryl spotted it while I was fighting with my laptop in Starbucks.
