Speaking of Progressives

Posted By Joe Lentz

Nice speech from Bill Moyers. Warning, may require more than a few seconds of your attention:

http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0610-11.htm

Here's a small excerpt:

""In one way or another, this is the oldest story in America: the struggle to
determine whether "we, the people" is a spiritual idea embedded in a political reality
- one nation, indivisible - or merely a charade masquerading as piety
and manipulated by the powerful and privileged to sustain their own way of life at the
expense of others."

One Down, Two to Go

Posted By Joe Lentz

The people of Spain just kicked out their government. Guess they thought the majority
of the people actually deserved to have their views represented. What a concept eh?
As I recall, that's what we used to have here at one time.

Scalia

Posted By Joe Lentz

Here's a nicely written piece on Scalia:

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/03/21/opinion/21DOWD.html?hp

His own views about conflict of interest issues re: the Cheney business truly
reek of arrogance and disregard for the spirit of the law. Of course given his history,
that should come as no surprise to anyone.

Lessons learned...

Posted By Joe Lentz

...and put into practice:

I think Nixon and McCarthy would be proud of our current president. He (and his handlers) have learned their lessons, and put them into practice with a vengeance. Manipulating the people through fear and lies has never worked so well. And the prez has fun doing it too!

Have we become so easy to fool? So willing to be held in contempt by our government? And the press eats it up like cotton candy. Well... don't worry about it, I'm sure we're in good hands. Go have another beer, turn on the TV, fix a snack... forget about it. Everything's quiet in your neighborhood right?

Re: Death count

Posted By Joe Lentz

Sobering indeed. And not a subject this administration wants us to look at either.
Better to just accept their version of events and reasons, and to be good americans...
vote them back into office, trust them... and their motives. Don't think too much
about it. Hey! I think there's something good on TV tonight! Have another beer!
Buy some fun stuff! Heck, those guys in the White House, they know what
their doing... right? Not to worry. We're in good hands..
