Golden Globes, Golden Calves, Golden Cows, the exciting, glittering world of Beverly Hills must remind us that it is not so bad that millions have lost their homes lately to floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, and foreclosure, as the idols pose for each glamour shot on their way to the banquet table, an open bar, and hopefully a prize. I won't be watching.
We can forget about the recent assassination attempt on U.S. soil, escalating wars, the suffering of those without jobs, to admire the gowns of, well, I couldn't really tell you who this year's stars are.
Since 2001, the FBI website, every kind of law enforcement website, and the spin-off, Homeland Security, have encouraged sincere citizen reporting of potentially violent or harmful persons.

from a speech to the Iraqi soldiers, "I just think -- you know, we talk about you all being, and you are, the greatest warrior class that the world has ever created. This is not only the best run, but this is the most powerful, significant military force in the history of mankind."

If we just sit back and do nothing we will eventually not have a 2 party system, there will only be ONE! A SYSTEM OF CORPORATE RULE!
Something like "social security has helped people not starve," like "Glass-Steagall Act prevented much fraud and abuse," :cutting taxes raises revunues over more than a very short period," etc.

Hirohito turns to the admiral, who was gazing, deep in thought, out the port window, The aide states, "We have won a great victory". Adm. Hirohito turns to his aide with a somber look on his face and says, "I fear all that we have done was awoken a sleeping giant"! (or something close to that).

Weird how this David Gergen piece appeared in Jan. 9's Sunday Parade, predicting Obama's Jan. 12 memorial address?
This piece appeared in the PARADE supplements to Sunday newspapers on Jan. 9. It's like Gergen was already laying the groundwork for Obama's reconciliation memorial address on Wednesday Jan. 12, in which Obama was the Big Dad scolding ALL his kids for not being polite to one another (even though the only ones not being polite are the Rightists).
