Why Are So Many Americans in Prison?

A more convincing argument is that imprisonment rates have continued to rise while crime rates have fallen because we have become progressively more punitive: not because crime has continued to explode (it hasn’t), not because we made a smart policy choice, but because we have made a collective decision to increase the rate of punishment.

‘Fourth Branch’ Cheney strikes again

Cheney apparently STILL unsure his office is in the executive branch. Apparently he says it’s because he has legislative duties. Nevermind that the President has legislative duties too – the President signs the bills, so by Cheney’s logic the President can’t be considered to be in the executive branch either.  Click on the link below to be directed to MSNBC’s story on this matter.

Is Cheney too Powerful?

Dick CheneyThe President often dominates the political spotlight that most of the country tends to forget about the man next in line. With this in mind, ABC did an investigation of the Vice President’s office, in particular Cheney’s apparent ‘quest’ for power.  Below is a short article regarding the power of Cheney, and at the bottom is a link to the original which contains a Good Morning America video segment featuring the Vice President. Please share your thoughts – is he too powerful?   

ABC News examined the stunning extent of Vice President Dick Cheney’s grab for power over the last six years in a sometimes sardonic yet serious segment on Good Morning America Tuesday morning.

Reporter David Wright says Cheney is refusing to play by the rules that govern everyone else who works at the White House.

“So almighty and elusive is this vice president, the New Yorker once ran a cartoon in which theologians debated the existence of Cheney,” Wright said.

Noting a proposal in Congress to cut funding for the Vice President’s office, Wright said a Cheney spokeswoman called the proposal political, but she wouldn’t say “because the size of the vice president’s staff is apparently classified.”

Chief Washington Correspondent George Stephanopoulos examined the controversy surrounding Cheney and pronounced the current vice president the most powerful person to occupy the office in history. Stephanopoulos predicted the next president will pick as his running mate “the anti-Cheney.”

NBC News reported on Monday that “Dick Cheney is back in a very uncomfortable place for him: the headlines.”

“Has the vice-president gone too far?” asked NBC, adding that “the National Archives thinks so,” because Cheney alone in the executive branch has refused to file required reports or permit inspections of his office’s handling of classified material.
