Ghost of Tom Joad

What is even sadder is the sh-t she is taking from people on the left. I've only been to the site once, but supposedly the creeps who are regulars at the Democratic Underground were particularly vile.

It is important to read Sheehan's departure message. Among other things, she (in my view correctly) told us that we won't have the country we want unless we work for it. Bush and the neoconvicts have the power they do because they worked for it. We can criticize and lament all we want, but only hard work and confrontation (and possibly a little ridicule) of their ideas, plans and absurd reasoning is what will change things.

Lee,
I think people have to be reminded of that Ben Franklin quote. The one about the Congress giving the people a Republic, if they can keep it.

Lee Levan

Amen, Ghost.

Ben's an absolute favorite - Here are the quotes:

"Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in the world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes." Letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy [Nov. 13, 1789]

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Franklin's Contributions to the Conference on February 17 (III) Fri, Feb 17, 1775

Nice comment, LL - love the vic line

I appreciated Cindy's message, and her resolve is admirable. Too often people don't demonstrate that kind of resolve unless their own personal lives are being profoundly affected.

She also raises the importance of blind loyalty to political parties--regardless of which political party that may be. Blind loyalty is never wise, and especially not when you are making the focus your partisan allegiance and not the true issues at hand.
