Nancy Altman: Message to the 99%: Help Stop the 1% From Using the Super Committee to Rob the American People


Nancy Altman: Message to the 99%: Help Stop the 1% From Using the Super Committee to Rob the American People: In order to spare defense contractors, the pharmaceutical industry, and other fat cats, while appeasing the credit agencies, whose AAA ratings to crony-clients helped crash the economy, the Supercommittee has proposed slashing benefits for current and future beneficiaries of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, notwithstanding that the current deficit has nothing to do with these programs.?

Shocker. Obama’s Top Political Advisor Directly Linked to Occupy Wall Street Protests | The Gateway Pundit


Shocker. Obama’s Top Political Advisor Directly Linked to Occupy Wall Street Protests The Gateway Pundit: The Working Families Party (WFP) (www.workingfamiliesparty.org) is New York’s most energetic, independent and progressive political party. Formed in 1998 by a grassroots coalition of community organizations, neighborhood activists, and labor unions, we came together to build a society that works for all of us, not just Wall Street CEOs and the well-connected. WFP is independent from corporate and government funding and in-addition we are community based; community funded and equally uninfluenced by both major parties. Our agenda focuses on economic and social justice, corporate accountability, job creation, environmental protection, and investment in education and healthcare.?

Canty v Ireland & ors


Canty v Ireland & ors: It seems to me that the Oireachtas is entitled under Article 34.4.3º of the Constitution to adopt a policy with regard to finality in landlord and tenant matters as between contracting parties. I am of the view that this was the intention behind the establishment of the 2004 Act, and certainly the inclusion of subs. (4) in s. 123. I do not read that restriction as exceeding what is authorised by Article 34.4.3º of the Constitution. There is in my view no ambiguity in the language of the subsection: the only meaning of it is that which I have endeavoured to describe. Consequently I cannot accept Mr. Canty’s submission that he has made out an arguable case for the interpretation as suggested by him and secondly, given the statutory framework against which the restriction must be judged, it cannot in my opinion be said to be incompatible with the provisions of Article 34.4.3º of the Constitution.”?

Lynch -v- Minister for Justice Equality and Law Reform & Whelan -v- same


Lynch -v- Minister for Justice Equality and Law Reform & Whelan -v- same: It is inconceivable to my mind that a Constitution which is broadly based on the doctrine of the separation of powers — and in this the Constitution of Saorstát Éireann and the Constitution of Ireland are at one — could have intended to place in the hands of the executive the power to select the punishment to be undergone by citizens. It would not be too strong to characterise such a system of government as one of arbitrary power. …… In my opinion the selection of punishment is an integral part of the administration of justice and, as such, cannot be committed to the hands of the executive as Parliament purported to do in s. 186 of the Customs Consolidation Act, 1876.”?
