Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. — Margaret Mead
Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. — Mark Victor Hansen
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. — Eleanor Roosevelt
Doomed! Nothing like following the worst possible advice to get out of an economic crisis. Banks aren’t lending not because of government interference but because of lack of demand.
Chuck Schumer’s wrong. The Republicans are pushing awful economic policies that are in fact not good for the economy because those are the policies Big Finance want, and Big Finance has learned how to make money in a downturn because it doesn’t matter to speculators, only to people who actually invest in growing an economy.
This guy couldn’t be more wrong about the US and the Egyptian military. He is as detached from reality as any wingnut. And he’s a professor at Stanford??
Forget Egypt; Free elections in America are being marked for elimination. No joke.
Michelle Bachmann (not atypically for a Republican, of course) hates our veterans.
Why, it’s enough to make you dizzy: We secretly back Egypt’s protest leaders as we sell Hosni’s cops teargas. Big Business helps set up Egyptians’ internet and cell cut-off.
Even with Egypt — which is to say the Mid East in crisis — this is the most depressing thing I read today.
China’s J20 stealth fighter: Made in, or at least stolen from, America.
Retard: Ross Douchat.
Asshole: Adrian Lamo, self-avowed Great American Hero.
The FBI’s post-9/11 war against civil liberties. (They can’t help it, it’s in their culture.)
Ayn Rand, Welfare Queen: If taking Social Security was just a way to get her money back from the feds, then clearly, she… well, there’s nothing to do except live on it. Next question is: Did she end up with more or less money than the gummint took from her in the first place? And of course there’s the whole issue of appearances…. (And she’s not simply a libertarian but something bad.)
