Pelosi's Misleading Statement on the Constitutionality of Government Health Care by Rob Natelson Speaker Nancy Pelosi has issued a press release in which she purports to rebut those of us who have expressed doubts about the constitutionality of some health care reform plans. Pelosi (or her ghostwriter) claims The 10th amendment to the US Constitution states that the powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people. But the Constitution gives Congress broad power to regulate activities that have an effect on interstate commerce. Congress has used this authority to regulate many aspects of American life, from labor relations to education to health care to agricultural production. Since virtually every aspect of the heath care system has an effect on interstate commerce, the power of Congress to regulate health care is essentially unlimited. (bolded in original). For several reasons, this is a highly misleading statement. First, it fails to mention a concern expressed by many constitutional scholars, including those on the Left: Substantive due process. Substantive due process is the doctrine by which the Supreme Court strikes down laws it deems unacceptably interfere with personal privacy or autonomy. Health care laws that, for example, limit ones ability to fund and control ones own health care could well run afoul of substantive due process rules. Second, the statement fails to mention that, while the Supreme Court has upheld ...

Metamorphosis My Art Gallery is at This video is a celebration of metamorphosis from the earliest life in the oceans, to the first tentative foothold on land punctuated by ice ages, through the diversification of humanity on into a speculative future. And as in all my videos, it is always, always, about the magic. This video is also a landmark for me in the sense that it makes extensive use of 4D quaternion fractals and includes Mandelbulbs, Juliabulbs, and bulbs of all sorts. My entire career as an environmental scientist has all been about metamorphosis in one form or another. The panoply of ecosystems on our world is linked to form a planetary ecosystem that is complex beyond all imagining. The planetary ecosystem is in turn a component in the solar system ecosystem that is a component in the galactic ecosystem, and so on. At all scales, there is interdependency. An ecosystem does not consist exclusively of biology. The structure of a biological system is dependent on the environmental conditions of its habitat. This grand pageant is now and always has been in a state of metamorphosis. Look at a clock. Count off one second. In that one second, the entire planetary ecosystem has undergone a metamorphosis. Somewhere a volcano is erupting. Somewhere there is an earthquake. Millions of flowers have bloomed. Untold thousands of eggs have hatched. Babies have been born. Elderly have died. All in one second. One second, in the scheme of things, is not much time, but ...

New Jersey Collection Agency Attacks Bloggers Civil Rights! FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 5/24/08 (Bergen County, NJ) - Due to the numerous Articles & Documents in the attempt to expose the New Jersey Debt Collection Industry, Capital One Bank recently filed a Motion in the Bergen County, New Jersey Civil Court against the Contributing Editor of the webpage of ; SJ Mills. "This was a blatant attempt to silence a critic of not only the New Jersey Debt Collection Industry/Scam; but the entire Credit Card Industry in General"; said SJ Mills a Contributing Editor of CAIPNJ, "We have proof that these companies are filing Illegal Motions against New Jersey Consumers as the State turns a blind eye to the abuse. This was Capital One's attempt to silence and intimidate me in the potential direct violation of not only my Civil Rights, but my rights under the Constitution of the United States of America which our Soldiers Fight & Die for. This was retaliation; plain and simple." In fact, under the New Jersey Civil Rights Act, "persons acting under the color of state law (eg, public employees) cannot interfere with or attempt to interfere with another person's exercise of their rights through threats, intimidation, or coercion." The NJCRA continues as well that "Any person who deprives, interferes or attempts to interfere by threats, intimidation or coercion with the exercise or enjoyment by any other person of any substantive due process or equal protection rights, privileges or immunities secured by the Constitution or laws ...

Creationism Meets Philosophy Part 1: Knowledge, Jusitification, and Belief Argues against the notion that intelligent design is required for human knowledge to be reliable. The video gives a basic outline of knowledge-related paradigms of justification, and shows that the aim of our beliefs should be consistency with our experience instead of absolute certainty.

I think it is the one that is the more philosophically plausible. The less charitable reading 'I think (doubt) therefore I exist' implies that there must be a single substantive self. David Hume notes that the self appears to be just a bundle of various experiential impressions, so there is not necessarily a single substantive entity that I can call myself. (SEE: A Treatise of Human Nature, Book 1, Chapter 4 Section 6). Despite Hume's objections, I think this charitable reading better captures Descartes' central insight: we cannot deny that we have conscious experience, even if this is conscious experience of an illusion.

Me VS God Part II: God's Image Debunked A quick debunking of the substantive interpretation of "God's Image." There is a natural human psychological bias known as the "false consensus effect" that causes us to falsely assume that other people/cultures/creatures/etc have the same behaviors, feelings, or attributes, as we do. I make the argument that the whole notion of "God's image" is really just a natural extension of this effect. God is easier to relate to, and therefore easier to believe in, when God is "like us." It is very common for religious thinkers to attribute human-like characteristics to God's form. They do this without realizing that human anatomy is the product of an evolutionary history, and that assigning such properties to God only makes Him an evolved being as well. Even the mere act of assigning God a male gender is a dead giveaway because ***ual reproduction is a huge driving force behind evolution. For more information on the nature of gender and ***ual reproduction, see CDK007's great videos on the evolution of ***:
Part II Utilization-Focused Assessment Panel Utilization-Focused Outcomes Assessment: Making Assessment Meaningful & Useful An inter-institutional panel discussion hosted by the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures at the University of Notre Dame focused on the Notre Dame Utilization-Focused Assessment Project for Foreign Languages. Brief Remarks by: John Norris, PhD Second Language Studies (University of Hawaii) Peter Pfeifer, PhD German Language & Literature (Georgetown University) Yukiko Watanabe, PhDc Second Language Studies (University of Hawaii) Lance Askildson, PhD Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures (University of Notre Dame) This panel will serve as the catalytic start for the two-year Utilization-Focused Assessment Project in the foreign languages--designed to establish substantive student learning outcomes, improve curricula and develop iterative assessment practices created by faculty from the bottom-up. This approach to assessment, one which emphasizes faculty involvement, ownership and practical utilization of assessment practices, has been successfully implemented within foreign language programs at peer institutions (including Georgetown and Duke) to great, substantive effect. The present project is therefore being carried out in collaboration with several parallel departments at Georgetown University as well as the University of Hawaii National Foreign Language Resource Center's (NFLRC) Foreign Language Evaluation Program.

In a memo obtained by the Huffington Post, Phil Griffin told his on air staff: "We do not publicly criticize our colleagues. This kind of behavior is unprofessional and will not be tolerated." Griffin was addressing comments made by MSNBC's Scarborough about Olbermann. As NewsBusters reported Monday, the "Morning Joe" host first tweeted his disapproval of the "Countdown" host's comments about Brown -- "How reckless and how sad" -- reiterating on his program Tuesday morning, "Sad and pathetic.

Liberty & Equality Watch more videos: lrnlbty.co Two central values in American political life are liberty and equality. But are these two values in tension with one another? As philosophy Prof. James Otteson explains, it depends on how you define them. There is more than one way to think about liberty, and more than one way to think about equality. For example, when talking about equality, there are two different central conceptions. The first is formal equality, equality that comes from the form of institutions. An example of formal equality is equality before the law: all laws apply equally to everyone. Formal equality is a central tenet of the classical liberal tradition, and compatible with individual liberty. But a second conception of equality is material, or substantive, equality. Material equality holds that people ought to be equal in material respects, such as wealth or resources. Material equality poses real challenges to classical liberalism, and according to Otteson, also faces challenges of its own. Otteson outlines three major challenges to material equality: first, it may be impossible, both to measure, and to achieve. Second, material equality interferes with human diversity. Humans have different talents, different interests, and different values, which in a free society get reflected in a range of goods & activities that individuals acquire and pursue. To try to enforce some kind of material equality would mean interfering with this diversity. That leads to the third ...
