“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.”

“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.

“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.”

“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)”

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.”
