« GOP Offers "New" Ideas - Not | Main | All the President's Friends »


George W Bush got away with more unconscionable, unethical, and even illegal behavior than any politician in our history. He sold the govt to the very corporations it was supposed to protect us from, ordered our air to be more poisoned, our water more dangerous, our food less protected. His Labor Dept made workers less safe - which he wanted, his FDA spent more time protecting Big Pharma than checking the safety of its products - which he wanted, and his Interior Dept was little more than the logger's best friend - which he wanted.

I'm with you, brother. He privatized Medicare through Part D. Softened the ground for the privatization of SocSec. Got Tort "Reform" passed. Got the Barriers to Bankruptcy Bill passed. Consolidated power in the Executive Branch. Set the stage for some frackin' martial law event whenever he feels like pulling the trigger. Got a war in Iraq that looks like it will be chugging along for at least ten more years w/o a problem. God knows what's on the horizon re: Iran. The list of his successes is impressive. It is only outshone by the list of the failures of the people and institutions which were supposed to protect us from this sort of takeover happening.

  • "[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."


  • "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.


  • ''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.''
