Subject: Healthcare Reform???? Really
Last year I voted for change, this year it is just more of the same. Is there a difference between Democrats and Republicans? Those lines are seemingly becoming more blurred daily. We could have gone a mile and they gave us an inch. Harry Reid is weak. Ben Nelson is an idiot, and Joe Lieberman is an evil self serving low life piece of fecel matter. And yes, while President Obama has done some nice things, on this issue he has not lead the way, on this issue he has been all to willing to pander to those who will never ever support what is in the best interests of the people, they will only line their pockets with blood money.
45,000 people die each year because they don't have health insurance. Those deaths are anonymous right? In a court of law theywould not be found guilty of anything. The people of Connecticut should impeach Joe Lieberman. As for me, I will not give a penny to the Democrats unless and until they find a spine. They find the willingness to fight, if need be go down swinging. I want my party back, and if that can't be, if they think the path to their political future lies with the other corporatists and fascists that I had all along defined the difference between the two parties, then they will have to do it without my vote.
I will never vote for those that think Sarah Palin is even remotely bright. No, I think we the people need to take the sort of action our Founding Fathers would be proud of. These parties no longer serve the will of the people, they must be done away with. New parties must be formed that will do the work and will of the people.

Subject: Give Lieberman His Wish About Recessionary Costs
Want to "payback" Lieberman and see him go nuts?
Since he says we cannot have health care reform because we are in a recession and Health Care Bill has High Cost according to Joe, then lets immediately pull all the troops out of the Middle East due to the High Cost of War.
High cost equals high cost, during a recession!!
Since Lieberman is a Conservative who is "concerned" about the "High Cost" of things during a Recession, then have Congress give Lieberman his wish by "cutting the purse for both wars".

Subject: The current Health Care bill
I wonder what exactly the Health Care Bill WILL do since it doesn't expand Medicare to those under 60, or have a public option or so many other things that have disappeared.
Subject: How About Our Building A Better World From The Foundation Up?
With the foundation's basic unit the "dynamizer", to be made up of individuals who are fed up with the status quo and believe that they should have a say as to what sort of world. For them what's compelling about the "dynamizer" is that it's theirs to create, thus giving them a chance at ground level to realize that which they seek. What's more since participation is based on the all for one and one for all, everyone aboard has the same opportunity. And not just at the local level, since coalitions of local dynamizers would form regional dynamizers, coalitions of regional dynamizers, state dynamizers and so on and so forth up to the national and even the global dynamizer. And what'll have made it all happen is the collective spirit, a type of energy that's only available to us humans by way of solidarity in pursuit of the common good. What it amounts to is ditching the status quo for something that'll work.

I know that I have no room to talk about states electing idiots to the senate because they keep electing Inhofe and Coburn, but at least they admit to being Gopers.
Subject: overprivileged and justice

they'd have given it already.

Subject: When The Going Gets Tough The Tough Get Going But The Weak Cave
And since we now know where our president fits in this, the question arises as to what we progressives can do so as to bring about change? Wait for President Obama to see the error of his ways? Yeah & what are the odds on that ever happening? Look towards and put our energies into the 2010 & 2012 elections? Except hoping for a breakthrough in the next election is what we've been doing for how many years now and where has this gotten us?. What's even scarier is the fact that perpetual war + global warming + economic meltdown = doomsday, and time's running out. But if we can't trust our president and there's no use our continuing to play the electoral game, what then? The answer is that we rise up en masse and change the world. What's more there is no alternative.
