  • US Constitution for the 21st Century

    08/29/2012 7:42:49 PM PDT · by johnkpiper · 24 replies
    Two visions: A highly amended current Constitution, or a new alternative US Constitution. Both ensure the intent of the founders to protect Individual Rights and limit the Powers of the Federal and State Governments, but are updated with 224 years of hindsight since the 1787 Constitutional Convention. Why do that? Because we have to! We are broker than we have ever been: $15 trillion in debt…that’s $15,000,000,000,000.00… 100% of GDP… for a sense of perspective, that is bigger than ELEVEN Canadas.

    WASHINGTON, March 17, 2006 – Morphing threats have created the need for change in the U.S. intelligence community, a top Defense Department intelligence official said here March 14. The National Security Act of 1947 was born from what President Harry S. Truman considered the failure at Pearl Harbor, Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin, deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence and warfighting support, said at the 17th Annual National Defense Industrial Association Special Operations/Low-intensity Conflict Symposium and Exhibition. The act remained largely unchanged until the fall of 2004, he said. At that time, changes to the act created the position of...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2006 – Through challenging the status quo and questioning old assumptions, the Defense Department is becoming a more capable force ready to face changing conflicts, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said here yesterday. All the military services have made changes in equipment, practice, attitude and culture to make them more relevant to today's battlefield culture, Rumsfeld said at a Pentagon news briefing. "There's a clear awareness that our military must be ready for unforeseen eventualities while incorporating lessons learned from previous and current conflicts," he said. The Navy is a prime example of the benefits of these...

    The last time anyone has bothered to look, we entered a new millennium back in 2000, and are currently living in the 21st Century. One would be inclined assume (based on their monikers) that those calling themselves 'progressive' or 'radical' would be looking toward the future and would be predisposed to welcome change and innovation. This assumption would be wrong. The very terms 'progressive', and 'radical' or 'RAD', are good examples of the FUBARING of language by the likes of one of their 'leading lights' Herbert Marcuse, and really mean their opposite. Incidentally, the use here of the term 'RADS',...

    When we look at the constant assault on all that made America great -- a common language, personal liberty, the right to assemble with whom we wish, conventional marriage, the Boy Scouts, religion, etc. -- we need only look inward to those working among us. We can call them Democrats, liberals, the left, or progressives. The label is not important. By their acts, we know them as socialists and they have a plan to disassemble society as we know it. We have written about the infamous House Progressive Caucus[1] many times before. The Progressive Caucus is the Congressional arm of...

Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not, against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore, take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and...

    Clinton praises Canada as a 21st-century model CTV.ca News Staff Canada is a good model for where the world needs to go in the 21st century, says former U.S. President Bill Clinton. "Canada has proved you can be a model of multiculturalism. That people can get together, work together, live together, across religious, ethnic and racial lines," he told Canada AM's Seamus O'Regan in an interview broadcast Friday. "You can assimilate new immigrants without losing the fundamental character of your country. You can be a very old fashioned, family-oriented, work-oriented country without discriminating against gays. "You can be an aggressive...

    Dutch Center-Right Coalition Stands up to Islamism By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 22, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende and his center-right coalition are standing up to Islamism, the true enemy of all civilized nations in the 21st century. Balkenende said Muslim groups “were sowing hatred, and [he] promised new anti-terror measures” in a speech to the European Parliament yesterday. On February 18 of this year, Dutch lawmakers promised to expel approximately 26,000 asylum seekers after digesting a parliamentary report which concluded … that the country's 30-year experiment in tolerant multiculturalism had been a failure, and has...

    Can technological progress be brought to a halt? Despairing technological determinists like philosopher Jacques Ellul feared that technology had escaped the bonds of human control and was now, in some sense, an autonomous force. In The Technological Society (1964), Ellul declared, "Modern technology has become a total phenomenon for civilization, the defining force of a new social order in which efficiency is no longer an option but a necessity imposed on all human activity." So in his view technological progress is, alas, inevitable. But is that so? Northwestern University economist Joel Mokyr has written a remarkably interesting history of Western...

    My Side of the Story Solutions for the 21st Century By Ken Goodall (As printed in The Exeter News-Letter on Tuesday April 16th, 2002) On an Internet news message board a poster named Morpheus stated that "There are no solutions for the major dilemmas confronting humans in the twenty-first century. You clearly disagree with that statement, so prove me wrong" Along with this statement he included a list of problems. In this column I have tried to address those problems. What are your solutions for poverty? First off I'd suggest that the person get a job. I know that sounds...
