I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I thought the speech as a political act was almost entirely meaningless because it goes nowhere. I respect and admire Bernie Sanders but standing up and speaking for eight plus hours doesn't do anything. Bernie needs to show up with a shorter speech and sixty votes. Lately the speech making is taking too long and he's got at best 53 votes — Bernie can't even muster the whole of the Democratic Senate caucus to his cause. This leads nowhere.

American Thinker: The Cloward/Piven Strategy of Economic Recovery
I'm sick of all the fighting that is keeping full blown socialism at bay. Let's just check our inalianable rights at the door and be done with it.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Umm yeah...I'm not spending 8.5 hrs (even broken up) listening to someone that is trying to filibuster something that is going to, in essence, raise taxes on me. He might say that he is for the "working class" or what not but that is bull crap. If it was true then he would do all that he could to get something passed now before the current tax cuts expire in 20 days.

My mind and my heart are saying I'm in my twenties. My body is pointing at my mind and heart and laughing its ass off. ~ Kal'Stang
the longer socialist sanders' spiel, the less time for dadt, dream, start...
despite all the pretty promises, promises
here, demonstrably, leadership DOES know what it's doing
5 days and counting
no dream, no dadt, no start...
only TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH (and that's IF obama gets his way)
