“I believe the one reason we have some of the conditions that you talked about at the beginning of the show is because we have ousted God from public life because of a small minority of people, those atheists that created trouble in 1962. And the Constitution does not say anything about a wall of separation between church and state. That was to prevent the establishment of a state church. Not to say that God had no role in public life.”
Hartmann pointed out that countries where people were the happiest, healthiest and equal, like Denmark, are less religious. Swain continued to insist, despite this evidence, that America is in decline because of “unbiblical and ungodly choices.” She said that secular humanists and atheists are leading the country down the wrong path and that Christianity is under siege.
Hartmann, a Christian himself, defended atheists, humanists and the wall of separation of church and state.
Swain said that she was not advocating a “theology” (presumably, theocracy), but thought that “We should be able to argue public policies with religious reasoning and scriptures.”
Vyan at Daily Kos is getting giddy in a post headlined “Could we soon see a world without Fox News?” It’s apparently all over for FNC: “In less than a week the News of the World Wiretapping and Bribery Scandal has quickly metastasized into a Multi-Headed Dragon of Death for Murdoch Empire and simply lopping off one head, doesn’t seem to be enough – the infection has already spread.”
Now that Fox-hating liberal interest groups, bloggers, and Democrat politicians are vowing to investigate, the Kosmonauts think Murdoch’s “criminal enterprise” is about to collapse:
With the current head of the Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal caught directly in this scandal – it won’t be long before they start shedding those assets as well, and yes, Fox News too – as it’s been obvious for a long time they are a Criminal Enterprise just like the rest of his media empire. Possibly one of the worst since Murdoch didn’t buy them as an existing enterprise – He built it from the Ground Up, which means the rot has always been part of it’s core.

The Supreme Court Sold Out Our Democracy — How to Fight the Corporate Takeover of Our Elections : Information Clearing House: ICH
- - Election 2010 is being fought on a wave of campaign dollars unleashed on the American people by the Supreme Court in its Citizens United v. FEC decision. The court, led by a majority of staunch right-wingers, struck down limits on third-party “electioneering” ads based on a tortured interpretation of the First Amendment guarantee of free speech.Thomas Mann, a Brookings Institution scholar, wrote that the decision “will likely go down in history as one of the Supreme Court’s most egregious exercises of judicial activism.
“ Rep. Peter Fazio, D-Oregon, told the Huffington Post last week that “the Supreme Court has done a tremendous disservice to the United States of America… They have done more to undermine our democracy with their Citizens United decision than all of the Republican operatives in the world in this campaign.” DeFazio said he is “investigating articles of impeachment” against Chief Justice John Roberts for committing perjury when he promised he wouldn’t be a judicial activist during his Senate confirmation hearings.The floodgates are open, and American democracy is at risk. But the decision didn’t emerge out of thin air.
Rather, it was the culmination of the development, over more than a century, of a bizarre theory of jurisprudence that holds that corporations enjoy the same Constitutional rights as human beings.For years, it was believed the concept was enshrined in the law by the Supreme Court in 1886, but in his groundbreaking book, Unequal Protection: How Corporations Became People — And How You Can Fight Back, historian and radio host Thom Hartmann revealed that the principle was in fact the result of what may be the greatest corporate fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.
