There are more. I just don’t have any desire to post them. So many were written while out stumping for Empire in the guise of the Democratic party. Now I find my naivete and tone embarrassing. The underlying messages were often well intentioned, but the Eww factor still makes me cringe and so the titles are not here.

Publications:
“A Step Towards True Equality in the Workplace:  Requiring Employer Accommodation of Breastfeeding Women,” 17 Wisconsin Women’s Law Journal 259 (Fall 2002).

“State Employers are not Sovereign:  By Analogy, Transfer the Market Participant Exception to the Dormant Commerce Clause to States as Employers,” 79 Chicago-Kent Law Review 725 (2004).

“A Dubious Designation:  How one Simple Label Legitimizes Human Rights Abuse,” 14 International Legal Perspectives 16 (2005).

I’ve written other online essays, but most of them came before I realized just how rigged for this imperialist empire everything is, and now I find them frankly somewhat embarrassing. I was taking sides as part of the empire and making my case. I guess I should be grateful to Mr. Obama for slashing those beliefs. I bought the marketing behind the “Hope” campaign. I cheered in the streets one cold November night in 2008. I really thought there would be change. What a laugh. The saddest part is watching my friends continue to participate in the charade, ignoring what is right in front of them rather than admit how enmeshed in imperialism we all are. If a reader happens to stumble upon this blog and reads old posts from those days, it’s likely they will find me to be a good progressive, out there doing the dirty work for the empire, oblivious. There are also old Huffington Post essays that can be accessed hereJust please realize, my views have changed.

  1. heya, I just read your article on state employers not being sovereign (I’m sure you’re completely over it :)), and I think you’ve been vindicated. from what I can tell, the courts are doing this commercial-activities-exception bit through the back door. for instance, Fitchik, a case from New Jersey of all places, has a three-prong test for whether an “agency” is an entity of the state or not. the third prong is essentially commercial, and it says that if the state treasury is implicated in claims for relief, then the Eleventh Am. applies. otherwise, it doesn’t. and it’s pretty broad. it basically says if the agency could raise the money in a garage sale, then the state’s treasury isn’t implicated. sounds pretty much like a commercial activities exception to me. what d’ya think?
