The GOP leadership can change its rhetoric on immigration but they can't change the bigotry the resides within a lot of their voters (much of which was cultivated by the GOP!)

I hope some day to have the opportunity to clarify the misconception about the wrong naming of Latin Americans referred as "Latino" in the USA. Most of us feel insulted with this "mote" however, we understand the ignorance behind it but resent it highly, including these so called "Latinos" in politics that cannot even understand it or even explain it. For me it is beyond belief that some of our "Latino" people can support the GOP under any circumstances, including black people who apparently do not know their own history and if they do they ignore it for their own convenience. I recommend the film Harvest of Empire or the book by Juan Gonzalez, it will help many understand a little bit but not everything. During this last election, the GOP leaders have insulted us openly to the core, I take it personal and despise them all just as they despise us!

Virgil Good had a great idea with immigration...hault distribution of green cards til unemployment is below 5%

That seems reasonble...right?

Activism Works!

When he was elected, President Obama told us to push him. Well, it looks like we may have pushed hard enough when it comes to the Keystone XL pipeline.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
