Edited on Thu Dec-02-10 01:44 PM by ProudDad
on the Supreme Court -- the perennial minority?

I see nothing but corporate capitalist tools (INCLUDING Stern) with just ONE potential "liberal" in Schakowsky...on this "commission". This deck was HEAVILY stacked toward corporate tools, republicans and blue-dogs... :puke:

Stiglitz is NOT on the Commission! Although Dog knows he SHOULD have been, or even better, Herman Daly, someone who actually has a Plan B!
