Time for Uncle Sam to Build Housing for People Without Homes

While Patty Murray and the majority of her colleagues in Congress were voting in 700 billion dollars to bail out Wall Street investment banks and firms, in which many of the executives in those businesses were getting unbelievably excessive bonuses, the problems of the homeless in America have been getting worst. For all the ideas for solving the problem of homelessness in America, there is one simple idea: build affordable housing. If there is enough affordable housing, this will do more to alleviate homelessness than anything else.

Minimum wages, part-time jobs, and unemployment compensation cannot pay the high rents in America these days unless nearly every single dollar that a worker gets goes into paying rent, and even then, with the way housing costs are increasing, that may not be enough. Many homeless people do not have jobs anyway. The private companies that build apartments generally will not build affordable units anymore, because the profits are not big enough for them. …

Scientific Intelligent Design

In a long 83 year campaign in the United States, since the Scopes Trial of 1925, some educators who believe in Darwin's theory of evolution have enlisted gullible colleagues and teachers to bring this theory into the public schools as fact, with generally no tolerance for debate or an alternative viewpoint. This is wrong, because evolution, as propounded by Darwin, is only a theory and our classrooms have become indoctrination centers for Darwinism. This is why the Party of Commons will be recruiting candidates to run for local school boards all across the United States, especially in the state of Washington, so that the theory of scientific intelligent design, along with the theory of evolution, will both have a forum in the classrooms and civilized debate can take place. There are those who intentionally mislead people about intelligent design, but whether the world was created in six days or six periods of time, or some other time frame altogether, is even a matter of debate …

Party Re-grouping

The blogging has been light recently due to the re-grouping of the Party of Commons as well as the party's organizing events for Mark Greene's senatorial campaign. As he did for Secretary of State, Mark is running a serious campaign and he will need all the support he can get, including contributions to his campaign. If you would like to contribute, please, visit and find the link for contributions to the right of the page. Volunteers are also needed. Mark will be running against Patty Murray in 2010. Patty Murray voted for the Wall Street bail-out and has been an apologist for George Bush, and something of a Bushian toady (as her bail-out vote demonstrated). Help Mark defeat Murray in the election of '10 with your volunteerism and campaign contributions. Thanks.
