Obama: A Hopeless Whore of Special Interest Cash

If you want my respect then conduct yourself in a manner that deserves it.

Not being candid or misrepresenting the gallons of oil spilled,...I mean,... what all is really going on with the Debt Ceiling shenanigans isn't going to earn my respect. It goes without saying that I trust Robert Reich and Dennis Kucinich more than I trust Barac Oblahblah.

Robert Reich: Wall Street uses Standard & Poors to Force Cuts to Social Programs in Debt Ceiling Crap - Soc Sec$$$

If you think deficit-reduction is being driven by John Boehner or Harry Reid, think again. The biggest driver right now is Standard & Poor's.

All of America's big credit-rating agencies -- Moody's, Fitch, and Standard & Poor's -- have warned they might cut America's credit rating if a deal isn't reached soon to raise the debt ceiling. This isn't surprising. A borrower that won't pay its bills is bound to face a lower credit rating.

Medicaid, Housing Assistance Cuts

For those concerned about health care for the poor, including many disabled and elderly people, cuts in mental health funding and services, and cuts in housing especially for the mentally ill, I would suggest going to the national Web site of NAMI where there is a section called legislative action alerts. You can send an email to your members in Congress and to state elected officials on legislation affecting the poor and the mentally ill in particular. Another Web site that I have found to be somewhat informative in the same area of mental health and health care advocacy which

You and Parker Palmer Share The Same Thought

Thom: We get you delayed here in Minneapolis on AM950. I just heard your response to a caller when you said "don't despair" and used the example of Elizabeth Stanton and the women's movement. They never lived to see the final fruits of their work, but it didn't stop them. I just finished doing an interview with Parker Palmer on his new book: Healing The Heart of Democray.
