I'm a little more than confused about what they just voted for if "the details are still being worked out". I have never really understood how oversight can take place if they vote on dollars to be spent but don't really know where it will be spent. Maybe you could help me understand this process. Personally, I say spend what we need, but the superficiality of the arguments make me very nervous.

You grammar stickler, you.

Yeah, I know. Me, too, but that's a different post. This whole business of passing bills nobody has read is what got us the MCA and the PATRIOT Act. It's what stuck us with a $700B give-away to bankers screaming they were going to go under who then discovered they were so solvent they had money to burn on exec bonuses & group vacations & company jets.

At some point it would be nice to know what's in these things before they get passed and we're stuck with them.

Zinn


  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton


  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
