"Obama's Disappointing State Secrets Procedures
After months of internal review, the Obama Administration announced a
new policy on the use of the state secrets privilege. The state
secrets privilege traditionally allows the government to withdraw
particular pieces of evidence from a court case on the grounds that
the evidence would reveal sensitive classified information. Despite
this limited purpose, it was repeatedly misused by the Bush (and now
Obama) administration and is badly in need of reform"

Changing links in "Garland" template "Misc" section « WordPress.com Forums: "'In a world marked by profound class divisions and social inequality, to talk about “democracy”— without talking about the class nature of that democracy and which class it serves—is meaningless, and worse. So long as society is divided into classes, there can be no “democracy for all”: one class or another will rule, and it will uphold and promote that kind of democracy which serves its interests and goals. The question is: which class will rule and whether its rule, and its system of democracy, will serve the continuation, or the eventual abolition, of class divisions and the corresponding relations of exploitation, oppression and inequality.' -Bob Avakian"

Facebook Revolutionise-the Law-society « Oconnellpadd13's Blog: "The Law Society sets aspiring solicitors the most frustrating barriers to entry. I am a law student who has spent a fortune, on fees, Fe1 grind schools, law society exams, rechecks etc. etc. Not only do you have to have 8 stressful exams done you must then try to find a lawyer to take you on in a recession to sign a contract which costs the guts of a grand to process. Its counterintuitive to take on a trainee when they are shedding staff accross the country in the thousands. So then one must face the fact if a solicitor doies sign the indenture you are faced with forking out the guts of 13k min for your education at Blackhall. This institution needs to change it's requirements because it has the potential to cause great anxiety for young graduates whose dreams are being dashed and it stays silent."
