The wealthy have been engaged in open class warfare against the American People for 30 years. The war is at a turning point and what could be lost may never be regained. It’s time for us to step up to confront and defeat this very real threat to the American way of life and our democracy.

That word doesn’t mean what you think it means. But that’s okay, it can’t be offended by you, because it’s dead.

Now, as is often pointed out to me, Mr. Carlin is indeed  “just a comedian”.  But so was Samuel Clemens.  His words carried no less weight with the American people than those of the most popular politician.  So forgive me for leading off with a true hero of mine. Democracy […]

The rally against the Kochs represented a dent in their stature and power and a validation of the unity and power the other 99% in this nation can have. With it, they can indeed take their democracy off the auction block.

Dazed, I turned only to see said chorus approaching, grinning, with one of them rapping the words “Slam Slam Cinderella.” To add to the surreal quality of the event: I didn’t feel humiliated.

I’m giving up officially. On politics. Specifically, American politics. I was raised in what my mother regularly called “a Democratic kitchen” in the South, by parents who had been Roosevelt Democrats. My father cast his first vote as a 21 year-old for FDR’s second term.

Not only did they merely elect him and his party, they did so resoundingly, and in such a way that […]
