“Huntsman really should run for the Democratic Nomination for U.S. Senate. Most Utah Dems love him, and fits a BlewDawg mold with his leather jacket, motorcycles, and complete approachability. I think he would win and become a senior statesman from the most deliberative chamber of government the world has ever seen.”

“Why even bother to have a Democratic party in Utah?”
“once again, leading through example. I hope congress follows her example. could it be that she is still the most effective legislator on the hill, despite her therapy? i think she probably is.
I hope she runs again.”

“don't get mad, get even!!! Move your $$$ is about the power of the consumer, and this is a national boycott! I moved my money in September of 2008, as soon as this effort launched. We are finally gathering enough energy, and consciousness is raised to realize that values are more important than the economy of scale.
tax a millionaire, and corporations aren't people!”
“love to see the tea-party highjack the republican party in their run to the right, right over a cliff!”

“Problem in watching the right wing is that you take your eyes off the left wing. They aren't exactly raising howls of support for Obama and they are a hard working core of support. If they would put out a third party candidate, just to make a point, it could devastate Obama's traditional support.”
The Working Family Agenda is about 3 minutes long, how is it for clarity?”

“Hey Brian, Nice work. I tried to post something on your site, failed to put in my e-mail and lost my message. I need to get out the door right now so quickly, that was excellent. The big task is educating people in the macro and how the exsistance of a robust middle class is the underpinning of a strong economy and socity as a whole. The "German Example" is a fine model. Good Jobs, good products, a shared vision for a country - at least in general - and a degree of fairness in how wealth is generated and distrubuted. Good luck - and I'll be sure to drop into your sight in the future. Now, my grossly under-employed positon calls (and I'm grateful for that) so I have to scoot. David (TBLC)”
“back in campaign form, the president has stopped trying to be a senator in the oval office. he may be just figuring out the whole "leadership thing", but if he can't negotiate legislation undoing the policies of GWB, the 2012 campaign will look a lot like 2008.”

“he had two years to negotiate the undoing of bush policies, what happened? when you control all branches of the goverment do something besides pork barrel spending.”
“as a Union Representative in a red state, I can say with certainty; there is more required of Unions in terms of regulations, both financial and political, than that of corporations, who enjoy the privilege of individual citizens.”

“If it were not for the presence of unions in our working society, people would not have the luxury of:
40 hour work week
Company paid benefits

“it is clear that citizenship is an excuse for segregation. given none of us would be citizens here, except for the exact same migration from scarcity and conflict, i find no logic in using citizenship as the baseline to basic human needs.
the issue is poverty, and the audience in "LatinoVoices" would not be european.”

“i was expecting the Latino point of view, the Section is called LatinoVoices afterall.
and yes, we are all americans, just look at a map of the western hemisphere.
what really stuck out to me is that Job Corp or YouthBuild is their second chance. what was their first? a playground sport leading to that college scholarship?
the quote from ceaser chavez is a home run, but she has got to make the fight universal, and the foe is poverty.”

“Your comment about "...and yes, we are all Americans, just look at the map of the western hemisphere" is a strange one. Are you saying that anyone born in the "Americas" (north, central and south) is an American?
Only being a citizen of the United States of America makes you an American-nothing else.”
alex61 on Aug 11, 2011 at 20:11:09
“Brian-you cannot possibly believe that all those who are from "the Americas" (north, south, or central) are Americans??

“She is a public official with a responsibility to all of us. She is not just another "wise Latina" standing on a street corner. Lets have some standards and expectations, please!”
“corporations are NOT people! they are shelters for people to hide their personal responsibility to things like establishing justice, promoting the general welfare, providing for the common defense, and securing the blessings of liberty.
this is him actually asking for permission to exploit you!
he is just another corporate welfare queen! Subsidies are spending your tax dollars on corporations so they doesn't have to re-invest any of those record profits!”
“so it is the system afterall! so long as you have corporate welfare queens running the congress, congress is bought and nothing will ever change.
the rich are extracting wealth, trillions of $$$ worth every day.
he misses on one point,
so long as they blame the president for congress being the way it is,
nothing will ever change. the president is a good speaker, but he cant sell that one. people love their congressman, and hate every other one.”
