Quick which of these Obama policies do you like best -

by RWSpisak

Pretending that anyone left of Lieberman is an unrealistic airhead? 

Or extending the BUSH reduction of Habeas Corpus into a Presidential Policy that he claims the authority to not just hold people indefinitely but to be able to KILL them Extra-judicially? 

Or maybe you like an opening gambit that the Health Care Proposal which included a PUBLIC OPTION was abandoned before negotiations? 

Or lets first before the budget negotiations - UNILATERALLY cut funds for elderly heating oil? Not your favorite? 

How about when his Justice department arrests and hounds more whistle-blowers than any other President? 

Or maybe you liked when they bailed out the Bankers and Wall $treeters, who not only caused but profited from the the Housing Bubble's Collapse. They make money on both sides of the deal, and get a bail out of any costs - still take home massive BONUSes
and JACK UP THE CREDIT CARD RATES to a point that looks' like Vinny G's neighborhood.

NO CRIME ON WALL STREET - They've benefitted from the LETS LOOK FORWARD BS - that got the Cheney Crew off the hook. You figure Bradley Manning could have benefitted from a LETS LOOK FORWARD JUSTICE PLAN? 

Or maybe you like the failure to support the women who invented the Credit Monitoring Agency. 

Or maybe you prefer when they threw Van Jones, and the woman under the bus, not even waiting for the facts - when Breitbart serial video mugger drops a DVD on some conserva-twerp. 

If we don't show PARTY LEADERSHIP - that their argument "WHERE ELSE YOU GOING TO GO" doesn't get out the TROOPS 
- Go Cash a Corporate Check... 

Goldman Sachs has your number!

A Perry Rubio ticket... chilling?

Mr. Latham streamlined theocracy - oooh that's scary.

WOW that's mighty strong anti-constitutional medicine if you ask me. A Perry Rubio ticket chilling? 

They are photogenic which for many Americans that is obviously enough. 

I've heard nihilistic disappointed progressive activists propose supporting a Palin ticket, because she'll quit part-way and steer so far from sanity it might wake the sleepy/hypnotized majority enough to pry them away from 'murcan idol and next week's casey-escapade. 

I'd prefer a Elizabeth Warren, Feingold ticket. No, sorry in my opinion, gridlock IS preferable to a millennialist theocracy. 
But they like Bachman - have "photo-face" which the real Constitutionalist Kucinich, seems to lack. It's a shame that honesty and statesmanship don't photograph so easily.

I'll give'm UNCERTAINTY!

We must put forth an alternative dialogue.
Since no one in the DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERSHIP seems to be able to break the COBRA STARE of the TEA PARTY.

Remember Al Gore's Social Security LOCKBOX that so much 'hay" was made of.
NOW - whose holding the bag with all the money to INVE$T yet they don't because of UNCERTAINTY - FDR or TRUMAN could have told them about where they can put that UNCERTAINTY. 


You who got a Multi-Million dollar PLU$ BONU$ - Invest it in American Jobs, or get TAXED - THEY SEEM TO LIKE SIMPLE PHRASES - 

While we can mental handle complexity - they use STUPID MANTRAS as a Paradigm Builder - 

It's not a TAX PROBLEM its a Spending Problem - they whine

YUP - You won't spend it on Jobs
OK - Then we'll help you make the Investment in Infrastructure and Jobs that you haven't got around to making yet.

The other (phrase that pays) for the T-Parte' set and those who cower in fear of them [the microscopic minority] they like 

"it's not that we're not taxed enough, its that we spend too much"

OK How would you like to pay for DEFENDING, EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA, and our frenemy the SAUDIs and of course our frenemy ISRAEL. - Since they had no trouble swallowing 7 DEBIT LEVEL INCREASES
just during W's Reign of Terror

What'dy say we don't give the PENTAGRAM any more money until they start actually accounting for it! You know no missing palettes of thousand dollar bills.

And they want to give the Pentagram the BIGGEST BUDGET EVER?
More than when we were NOSE to NOSE with Russia?
NO CASH SHORTAGE THERE HUH - Who's Uncertainty are we worried about there?  - 

We can't let them knock down grandma and take the BUSH WAR MONEY and the BANKER BAILOUT MONEY from her.

She's going to need to eat something instead of her grandbabies this winter.

The Long Slow Arc of Human Liberty

Whose TEA are they Brewing?

by Rick (at) AveryVoice (dot) com
The long slow arc of human liberty has set backs, and great leaps. Often when offense is heaped upon offense, so as to catch even the ear of the distracted, great things can happen.

The assault on SE Asia that necessitated the draft, within memory of activists yet on the front lines, awakened in some (if only in self-interest) if not in humane fellowship with the much put upon natives of southeast asia and activated Anti-War Millions across the globe.

The ruthless destruction of the shredded remnants of the middle class is so well coordinated and ubiquitous, so as to catch the eye of even the most casual observer. Again we have the coincidence of moral outrage and self interest. When a few years ago, a handful of economists  wrote of the obvious injustice of republican voodoo economic policy and those interested in economic fairness raised the alarm, they found themselves greeted with the shrugs of those too mesmerized by their (temporary housing bubble) and the new slave-labor manufactured electronic toys to care. They shopped at Walmart and thought themselves fortunate.

Now the price of refusing to notice the invisible economic policy elephant for what it was and is, a force, empowered to drive Americans to a new feudalism, the working poor are becoming suddenly aware that they cannot live their lives untouched and apart from these KLEPTOCRATIC POLICIES.

The illusion that they can ignore these thieves is dissolving before their eyes. The illusion that they can participate by voting(via republican-manufactured and programmed) black box voting machines, has resulted again and again in a curious pattern of "heads they win, tails we lose elections", resulting in UN-REPRESENTATION with the installation of radicals from the Corporate Party taking the reins of governance and steering policy toward an all-corporate all-the-time agenda.

We who strive to participate in policy have watched in horror as educational policy, investment policy and regulatory policy has turned onto a one way street of corporate give-away and away from serving any public interest. 

Arguments among the politically savvy over how best to wake the slumbering majority, (who dream only of returning to the comfort of their easy chair, so they can watch American idol) only serves the KLEPTOCRATS.  We activist few, must instead focus on informing all we can, of the precise damage being done, by the THIEVES  occupying the PANTALOONS of Public Servants.

Dan's* point, that we should take every opportunity to inform and engage our victimized neighbors, is well put, but I would add, we have to be aware of Cassandra's trap. Cassandra's message was accurate and dead-on, but unheeded. We must understand, no one likes to be told, they've left the door open for the BAD-WOLF.  The very significance of the danger makes it's comprehension, that much more difficult.

Explaining to the average voter that there are thieves and worse, in the halls of power only reminds them of two unshakeable facts, their victimization, and the necessity of immediate action. These indisputable facts are as welcome as an eviction noticeWe must offer a realistic alternative to inaction. 

Anyone paying attention, has been made aware, that any hope of college for their children, will be increasingly difficult to obtain, even staying employed and in their homes has become less of a certainty. We must offer more than bad news,  that much their eyes have already told them. Victimized women and children, waters polluted, credit unavailable, services unreliable, expenses rising daily. Anyone looking with open eyes  sees a country in quite terrifying straits. No wonder, amusements, like VOICE and IDOL, are sought. 

 SOLIDARITY in Poland faced down the COMMUNIST TANKS and SECRET POLICE and the RUSSIANS EMPIREand WON. We may be facing similar dangers, but our overlords, must maintain the pretense of civil law.  We must carry the message of hope through joint action. Survival and change through unity. We must be proponents of unity of action. And not just in words. We must find our common cause. 

We can overcome, although we may not have yet crossed our Edmund Pettus Bridge

*Dan Tilson - suggested in an essay, that we should take advantage of the 4th of July weekend to inform our friends and neighbors of the dangers facing our country from the Right Wing Kleptocrats.
