Mad as Hell is much more than screaming and disrupting, and it is never about rage or violence. It is about constructing a humane, creative response to the crisis of our world. It is a stand we take as individuals.
Any fair-minded American would find the sort of attacks routinely published on The New Boston Tea Party inexcusable -- the lowest sort of thing since Andrew Jackson's enemies called his mother a prostitute.
All of us must engage in the fight to win our future. We know the House Republican Caucus is being strangled by the Tea Party and we know the President cannot win passage of this landmark set of ideas on his own. We must stand on his side of the line.
I personally find it disgusting how much the U.S. emphasizes the tenets of death instead of the tenets of life throughout our policies. However, is shaming and guilting people really the best way to win them over?
We should not let the fact that we are conflicted on the president's proposal slow down our willingness to take action to fight for what we believe in. We need to be strong and clear in what we are calling for, and fight for everything we believe in.
If we'd known that Obama the Conciliator would make it to the White House and Obama the Transformer would be left in Chicago's Grant Park on election night, many of us would have gambled on someone else.
I saw no mention of Robert Redford's birthday amongst all the pop dreck that seems to capture people's attention these days. I am going to attempt a tribute of sorts, as I can think of few people in the entertainment field more deserving.
These are hard times. Many Liberals are discouraged and fearful about the 2012 election. But there's plenty of time to re-energize, so long as Liberals remember who we are and what we are fighting for.
If the clever guys at the White House don't realize they've hit their tipping point, they're in for a rude awakening when that tsunami washes over them. They're headed into the 30s in the polls and I don't think they have any clue how to get out of there.
The world's most powerful country was brought to the edge of financial chaos by Mrs. Bachmann and her Tea Party cohorts. Americans should never forget the damage that they have caused the whole nation.
Now we see why the 2012 elections are so important. America got what it voted for in 2010. If we want to reverse the disastrous policies George W. Bush instated and the Tea Party have kept in place, we have to turn this country around in the next election.
