I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Is MN Senator Al Franken A Jedi Knight?

You know that scene in Star Wars, where Obi-Wan clutches his heart and says " I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened. "...It's the same feeling I get about health care..about Obama's mishandling of it, about the blue dogs and about Lieberman.

I'm hopeless and helpless, mad and cranky...and scared...Is the 'change we believed in' dying?

Today I saw this video posted up at several blogs...Thank goodness for Senator Franken...at least there are some Democrats that are true to their values...I still feel kicked in the teeth...but let me listen a few more times to Jedi Franken and maybe the feeling will start to pass...maybe...

"For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times... before the Empire"..

These are dark times...there is a wall street empire..."Who's the more foolish: The fool, or the fool who follows him? " Never thought of myself as foolish and won't for much longer...Message to all you other elected corporate tools...Start Working for Americans!!!
