Remember the Victims, Reject the Violence After the Newtown killings, a 6th grader at an elementary school near Salt Lake City brought a gun to school, saying he wanted to protect himself and his friends. Instead, he used it to threaten classmates. This can't go on. This spilling of innocent blood, this bleeding of democracy's soul. We're losing faith in ourselves, acting as subjects, not citizens, no longer believing it is in our power to do the right thing.

The Continuing Power of Karl Rove You could see Rove at the Republican National Convention, backslapping and glad-handing plutocrats and politicos. He told a private breakfast meeting during the convention that the super PAC he helped create, American Crossroads, plans to spend $200 million dollars on the presidential race and another $100 million dollars on this year's Senate and House campaigns.

Ralph Reed: From Purgatory to Power When Ralph Reed, the former head of the Christian Coalition, was discovered to have raked in millions from the super lobbyist--and eventually convicted felon--Jack Abramoff, Reed wound up in political purgatory. But outraged by the election of Barack Obama, and responding to what he describes as God's call, Reed returned to start the Faith and Freedom Coalition with the aim of toppling Barack Obama from the White House.

Neglecting the Poor: Invisible Americans Get the Silent Treatment It's not surprising that there's a crisis in America's civil courts because people slammed by the financial meltdown -- overwhelmed by foreclosure, debt collection and bankruptcy cases -- can't afford legal representation and have to represent themselves, creating gridlock in our justice system -- and one more hammer blow for the poor.

Living Under the Gun At least 12 are dead in Aurora, Colorado, gunned down by a mad man at a showing of the new Batman movie filled with make-believe violence. One of the guns the shooter used was an AK-47 type, assault weapon that was banned in 1994. The National Rifle Association saw to it that the ban expired in 2004. The NRA is the best friend a killer's instinct ever had.

Moyers: Why Religion Should Not Dictate Our Politics The battle over contraception no longer seems apocalyptic. No heavenly hosts pitted against the forces of Satan. It's a political brawl, not a crusade of believers or infidels. The president skillfully negotiated the line between respect for the religious sphere and protection of the spiritual dignity and freedom of individuals.

In Defense of NPR For all its flaws, consider an America without public media. Consider a society where the distortions and dissembling would go unchallenged, where fact-based reporting is eliminated, and where the field is abandoned to the likes of James O'Keefe, whose "journalism" relies on lying and deceit.

Chevron's "Crude" Attempt to Suppress Free Speech Federal Judge Lewis A. Kaplan ordered documentary producer and director Joe Berlinger to turn over to Chevron more than 600 hours of raw footage used to create a film titled Crude: The Real Price of Oil. Chevron is trying to avoid responsibility and hopes to find in the unused footage evidence helpful to the company in fending off potential damages of $27.3 billion.

Dangerous Alliance of Health Industry and Right-Wingers Will Stop at Nothing to Derail Progressive Reforms The Republicans have more than health care reform in their bombsights -- they want a loss for Obama so crushing it will bring the administration to its knees and restore GOP control of Congress after next year's elections.

A Time for Heresy Baptists in colonial America flocked to Washington's army to fight in the Revolutionary War because they wanted to be free from sanctioned religion.
