The Bush Legacy in 8 Minutes

Good stuff for all you liberals out there, and all you republicans not brainwashed by Rush Limbaugh.

If Abortion were Illegal....

As a question of personal morality, I am against abortion. As a question of suffering I am against abortion. As a matter of principle, moral decisions are up to the individual. Thus women have an individual choice to make, not the courts.

But this asks a good question. If abortion is really "murder" then what should the punishment be for women who get abortions? Anti-abortion activists get asked this very question. Amazing how they fluff the question of the punishment considering they consider it "murder".

GOP Exposed!

If you are a liberal like me, but find that people on the left tend to be a little wimpy, you will love this guy! He gives no last name. He goes only by the name "Jeff" and he hits hard. How many other people will come out and say "The Iraq War is the violent rape of a woman. And we are waiting for her forced orgasm to justify the violence". Damn! Thats some serious stuff right there! This guy tells it like it is. I love this guy!

Down load his podcast and listen to it. As well, feel free to mosey on over to the itunes store and subscribe to it and give him some stars.

He is a bit heavy on the Jesus stuff, and simply doesn't get it when it comes to Atheists against Christmas. But I can forgive that for his brutality when dealing with the GOP.

I'm going to do a few blogs on great progressive radio podcasts for you to listen to and download.

Harry Reid - Getting in the way of Change?

I read a great article at the Daily Kos today that summarizes my feelings on Reids actions the last few weeks.

Jane gives us the narrative, and it ain't pretty. Harry Reid is hopeless.

But this is my favorite line, from Reid:

"I don't work for Barack Obama."

This from the guy who blamed Obama for his caucus' decision to keep Lieberman as chair of Homeland Security. He was Obama's Employee of the Month back then.

So Reid was out bluffed by Lieberman, then he was outbluffed by McConnell on seating Franken, and now he'll be outbluffed by the guy appointed by the crooked governor.

Meanwhile, while he rants about one crook, he coddles another.

My personal feeling, you guys, I don't know what good [sending former Sen. Ted Stevens to jail would do] ... He was a real war hero too, you know. He's been punished enough.

If Republicans were truly smart, they'd give Reid an electoral pass. He's the best thing Republicans have going for them in the entire Congress.

My hope is that is not such a punk as to stand in the way of a democratic president. It would be a shame. After all, he sat by and let a republican congress rubber stamp Bush's agenda for six years. Now is not the time to cannibalize your own party. Reid is either part of the problem or part of the solution. Its about time he step up and act like the majority leaders instead of an insipid child who refuses to be told what to do.

Change You Can Believe In - The Change We Need

For my 200th post I really wanted to focus on one man and the impact he has had on this country so far. That man is Barack Obama. For two months we have watched as the our economy, and indeed the world, have crumbled beneath our feet. We have watched one hair brained scheme after another fail miserably and leave the average American on Main Street wondering if anyone in Washington cares at all about us. But, on Jan. 20th, a new Era begins. Will it be any different? I think so. And here is why.

Never before in our generation has such a diverse and qualified group of people been assembled for a presidents cabinet. He has literally picked the best of the best. He picked all stars. He didn't pick people who were okay and would listen to him, he picked people he knows will do the right thing. He picked people from many different points of view in security and intelligence and the environment. He will have the benefit of hearing many different sides of each issue. Something most presidents never have. Most presidents pick people who think like he does.

And yet, when assembly the all-star team wasn't good enough, he appointed a new position, a "government waste czar". Someone to patrol and eliminate government wasteful spending. When has that EVERY been done? In a time when nearly all economists say the government needs to spend spend spend, he is still working on trimming the fat. And he hasn't even taken office yet.

And then there is religion. He picked exact opposite sides of the spectrum to give the opening and closing invocation. On the leading end, and evangelical. On the lead out edge, a pro-gay marriage pastor. He has, in one fell swoop, given all sides of each issue, a voice in his cabinet, and even at his inauguration. When he takes office, he does so uniting people as never before by giving them all a seat at the table! This in addition to his online town hall meetings in which he people listen to your comments and actually respond!

Has anyone ever united a country in this fashion and this well?

This is the change we need. He is the right man for the job at the right time. America, you finally made a damn good choice.

On that note, here yesterdays presidential address to the media.
