Enough of the D.C. Dems

Enough of the D.C. Dems:
"Mah fellow progressives, now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the party. I don’t know about you, but I have had it with the D.C. Democrats, had it with the DLC Democrats, had it with every calculating, equivocating, triangulating, straddling, hair-splitting son of a bitch up there, and that includes Hillary Rodham Clinton."
....
Take “unpatriotic” and shove it. How dare they do this to our country? “Unpatriotic”? These people have ruined the American military! Not to mention the economy, the middle class, and our reputation in the world. Everything they touch turns to dirt, including Medicare prescription drugs and hurricane relief.

This is not a time for a candidate who will offend no one; it is time for a candidate who takes clear stands and kicks ass.

"I am a liberal. And I make no apologies for it. Hell, I'm proud of it.
Feingold to call for rare presidential censure
Patricipate in our government. Call you senators whether they be Dem or Repub and ask them if they are going to support Feingold's resolution. Go here for talking points and contact info. Get involved. It will take you five minutes.

Sandra Day O'Connor rips into GOP, DeLay, Cornyn, and warns of the "beginnings" of dictatorship

White House Aide Caught In Shoplifting Scheme
He wasn't just an "aide". He was really plugged into the administration. Check him out. Oh, and here is a link from the WaPo on a story (blowjob) they gave on Allen when he was nominated by Bush to be a judge on a federal appeals court:
'Conservative Values' Guide Court Appointee

"RICHMOND -- Claude A. Allen, nominated by President Bush last week to the nation's most conservative federal appeals court, was just out of college when he began to immerse himself in conservative policy and rough-and-tumble politics as the campaign pitchman for then-U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.)."
One more time: McCain IS NOT a moderate:
"Now that the Republicans have started their presidential campaign, it's time to disabuse Americans of the notion that McCain is somehow a moderate"

Cal grad student working on thin solar panel:
This is how we do in NorCal:

"Gur thinks big. His goal is to play a part in creating a new kind of solar panel, one so light it could roll off a printing press like newsprint, and so cheap that the world's poorest local economies could not only afford to buy it but also make it."

Amen to Molly Ivin's call-out of the spineless DC Democrats. (Oops, is it okay for a progressive American to use religious terminology?)

Speaking of spineless Dems, I called the offices today of the honorable (cough, cough) senators from California -- Boxer and Feinstein. Apparently, both are still noncommittal on Feingold's resolution to censure C-Plus Augustus for breaking the fucking the law. Wtf?! It should take about a nanosecond for any Democrat to decide their position on this. I expect this crap from finger-in-the-wind Feinstein. But Boxer?? Get it together Barbara -- that's 122,400,000,000,000 nanoseconds and counting...

Finally, kudos to Krugman's McCain take-down. This is serious shit. If we don't redefine McCain starting immediately, the Bullshit Express will be pulling into Washington in 2008. McCain is as phony as they come. And that's saying a lot in the Bush-Cheney era.

Okay, there's a little less steam coming out my ears now. Jesus Christ!

I can't imagine the emptiness of the world if we had never had Molly Ivins, Noam Chomsky or Chuck Berry. I couldn't support or vote for Kerry, either Clinton, or any of their ilk. I had no choice and probably will have no choice but to vote Green. As far as "patriotism" goes, I proudly proclaim that I am not a patriot. All these sniveling politicians and columnists who fall all over themselves proclaiming thier patriotism as if it were a virtue are embarassing to me. I don't see how any free thinker in any country at any time in history could be one. To quote Guy de Maupassant: "Patriotism is a religion, the egg from which wars are hatched". I believe in being true to my ideals, no matter what countries are involved.
