Embracing Moral Mondays 7 Days A Week

For me, watching Bill Moyers’ PBS Frontline “Two American Families” on July 9 brought me to tears. This was literally my neighborhood. I grew up in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood, which is where the Stanleys, one of the two families lived. I used to spend my winter days as a youth walking to Sherman Park to ice skate; in the summer to use their public pool.


I'm so tired of the inaction of congress since 2010. It was obvious to everyone what the plan was the moment President Obama took office, do nothing hope the country falls apart and blame the black man. The right wing in this nation has no idea's to help the economy besides lowering taxes for the wealthy, eliminating food stamps and privatizing everything. The President put forth plans that are proven to work, such as rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. He can't do anything though with out the help of congress, at least anything substantial.

To the guy who called around 3:35 central named Tom who asked Thom something he doesn't know what he's talking about (surprise!)

Yeah, be very wary, its a public secret that water at vaporization emplathy expands 1600 times into vaporized water, steam et al. It's the most phenomenol fuel additive ever, but people have died for trying to market water injection, and sooo much crap about how it wouldn't work.
