Keep Laws Fair: Panel Presentation

Tuesday, 13 March 2012 12:27

SCPA 1st Thursday Program: April 5 at 6:30 pm in the Henegar Center, Downtown Melbourne.
Four of Florida's most distinguished attorneys will give a panel discussion: Keep Laws Fair. True justice requires fair laws.

This post is a review of The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander. It is related peripherally to campaign financing because there are powerful economic forces who thrive on the nightmare presented in her book, and which will spend mightily in political contributions and lobbying to prevent any change. The book is a powerful one, and I recommend it for all SCPA members.

The purpose of "flash" bombs is to create fear and panic (shock and awe) in the "enemy."

On June 21st, 2005, a variety of Brevard County groups attended a meeting at Kay's Barbecue in Cocoa, for the purposes of discussing how to organize opposition to the recently passed Federal REAL ID Act, a big brother nightmare.

Though King’s legacy is often inextricably linked to his faith in God, he was hardly a cheerleader for the church as he found it and is best understood as a philosopher and social leader who happened to be passionately committed to Jesus Christ.
