"Armagettin' Outta Here" A good read below...
From Free Inquiry Magazine
(Council for Secular Humanism)
" ... fascism’s principles are wafting in the air today, surreptitiously masquerading as something else, challenging everything we stand for. The cliché that people and nations learn from history is not only overused, but also overestimated; often we fail to learn from history, or draw the wrong conclusions. Sadly, historical amnesia is the norm."

A former Catholic who now defines herself as a Militant Agnostic*, one thing I remember from Theology studies is that "evil" is a human choice, a perversion/distortion of that which is good and true. And so, here's today's thought from of all places, The Bible, something I literally fell upon today while cleaning my bookshelf.
As we enter the dog days of the 2012 election cycle, once again we are confronted by a counter-revolutionary movement hellbent upon establishing a "Theocratic (Christian) Plutocracy" in a democratic nation based upon religious tolerance and the separation of church and state. Today, the Republican lead House of Representatives is once again choosing to ignore ready-to-go jobs bills, tax relief for the 98% and instead offering yet another crazy piece of legislation attacking women's health via the abortion issue. Are you kidding me?

Time for we the people's party to call out the Democratic Congress, and make them take a stand for the middle class, unite firmly against tax extensions for the wealthy! The Blue Dogs need to get with the program, the Party, the People and the President and do the right thing before 1/2 of them leave. Are Dems still in denial as to why we voters fired half of the Blue Dogs and Senators this past election? Fear has been their driving force, fear of loss of their own jobs, donors, popularity... and fear is the absolute enemy of the people, for sure.
NOTE: If Dems continue to be silent, flaccid, and gutless, watch out for a 3rd Party coming strong from the left and Independents.

Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod have done a great job handling the "image" of President Obama as far as getting him launched and elected, but both men seem to forget that he is now also the executive leader of the Democratic Party. Time for Gibbs to step aside and let a better image come forth. The Democratic Party exists because of the voters, and the grassroots has had enough of the parenting and scolding. Treat us like adults and stop whining. The Party of the People needs positive reinforcement to deliver another win in November.
Maybe a little diversity in the press room would also help... and I mean women.
