A federal district court judge in the state of Washington has dismissed a major lawsuit challenging alleged domestic military spying against antiwar activists. He made the choice not to do his job, admitted to lawyers representing activists that he had not reviewed all the evidence and issued a decision that could seriously jeopardize the ability of citizens to dissent in American society if it is allowed to stand.

This is just a simple, easy to understand example, of a few minutes of spying by one comedian and his techie buddy. How many people who say it’s not a problem, would feel that way after their entire home lives were open to surveillance?

As marijuana legalization spreads to more states in the coming years activists should push to include a limited home growing provision in any bill or ballot initiative. If it is not included from the start it could take years and possibly decades to get it added later.

On the big questions about our government’s performance in the lead up to the 2008 financial crisis and afterwards during the response, today’s guests believe our government blew it. Past administrations made errors of commission and omission that led to the crisis, and the Obama Administration failed to address its aftermath effectively. Government didn’t diagnose and treat the problems that led to the crisis, and it didn’t prescribe the right medicine after the convulsion. On these big questions, few at Firedoglake are likely to disagree with the good doctors of political science who are today’s guests. There’s blame enough to go around, the authors say, but “Wall Street should be nailed to the highest pole.”
