"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
There is a genuine populist anger that has been hijacked by the billionaire Koch brothers and right wing organizations like Freedom Works. They have funded and organized the Tea Party with a venire of a grassroots movement and redirected the populist anger into the movement. Anyone who doesn't know any better fell for this, and Palin is like a cheer leader to keep that anger riled up. These people have bought the lie that "trickle down" economics works.

Great job Governor Strickland!
I have a question that I have asked Thom over and over again and it hasn't been answered.
I am Catholic, and I am Pro A Woman's Right to Choose.
Ever since I was a child the Catholic Church Dogma has drilled it into our brains that the A word is as repulsive as the N or F word. I would really like to understand why it is that Rachel can't say Pro A Woman's Right to Choose vs. Pro The Governments Right To Choose.
Lovely sight to see--hope more useless ex-Clinton financial types leave the admin. The backwards 'recovery' was fashioned by these guys after everything 'Clinton'--which is part of the economic drumroll that got us all into this broken regulatory, NAFTA style economy. No manufacturing STILL(even in the works) after two years in office. Thank you Mr. Pres. for taking some decisive action which DOESN'T look like business as usual. I'm encouraged!!!!
Why the "Good Old Days" Aren't Good Enough
"Does TV Suck... Or What?" Looks like a flippant; easy to answer, question. But... it's not.
I was in Ohio when I wrote this and, while tearing down another show, they had on the Disney Channel... well one of them. Apparently there's at least two. I have always found Disney production values superb, but their scripting sucks. Take the show they had on around noon with live actors. I never bothered to find out the title because, to Yoda-ize it a bit, "Masochist am not I."
We had strong unions for many years.....
