I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Those who speak the truth are heroes, anything less is a lie.

Seriously Left and Loving It!

---I've been a follower of OpenLeft for years…and find that our ideology seems to run the course (either that or we had a Vulcan mind melt!)

Over the past year, I have increasingly become of the opinion that the progressive movement is not a series of candidates, advocacy organizations, and new media outlets. Instead, it is a series of broad cultural trends toward an increasingly democratic society. Immigration, the self-publishing Internet, rising union density, increasing acceptance of LGBT culture--these trends are the progressive movement, not our elected officials, political staff, pundits, and advocacy organizations


---WTF could they be thinking…er…I guess they arent…

----Need more proof that absences isn’t working ...

-----It’s not enough to rebrand themselves now the rethugs want to brand us!...I don’t think so…

------Jesse Ventura has surprised me twice in the last two weeks….you go guy…



----The Pawlenty diet of ‘All cuts, All the time’ will result in massive losses in Minnesota especially in service industry like police, fire, hospital staff, and teachers. Instead of raising taxes on the wealthiest of us (and leveling them so they pay the same percentage as the poorest among us)..Pawlenty has decided to cut services…heck he evens wants to lower taxes on businesses (haven’t the last ten year taught us trickle down doesn’t work?!)…

------Makes me want to get into my car and rant away while filming…BTW: bizzaro world has decended….PS…I’m looking for a second ‘safe’ place…pst if you know of someplace ‘off the grid’-)
