Seeing as how the word “Fascism” is being bandied about lately, I thought I’d add something to the mix:
“The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
Think about it.

Ah the wonders of the GOPranos and their conservative Brethren in the Democratic Party.
We can get progressive legislation with a new strategy.
Please pass this email to every one of your friends as soon as possible. Thank you.
Instead of petitioning a corporate corrupted congress for legislation, petition the corporate friends of conservatives in both the GOPranos and the Democratic party for legislation and include a boycott threat in your email petitions as you see below. Spread the word please.

Think about this, what if this Oil spill, as tragic as it is, provides us with the wake up call about how we power our world?
My first thought when the spill happened was, what if we had not gotten rid of the electric car of the 1990′s (from the documentary Who Killed the Electric Car?)
and electric cars had grown in usage for the past decade? Would the drilling platform catastrophe still have happened?
No one can be sure, but what we can be sure of, is that it will keep happening until we change our cars from gas/oil powered to electric powered.
That’s why this petition is so important – the Gulf Oil Spill Electric Car Credit.
This petition asks for legislation to give a substantial credit for purchasing an electric car, and it has key provisions to put a lot of people to work, immediately – in a midterm election year.
But we need to get support for this idea in the US House and Senate.
That’s where you can help…

There are a lot of wacky people in the world. At times it is part of the joy of living, when you run into someone who is willing to give you a five hour mini-seminar on crop-circles or try to explain the universe with the theories of Immanuel Velikovsky. If you have a reasonable sense of the ridiculous and a lot of time on your hands it is a harmless source of entertainment. The problem comes when one persons wackiness intersects with the legislative process.
This is where we are in at least two states, Virginia and Georgia in regards to the forced implantation of micro-chips. Last night Rachel Maddow had a piece about the testimony given by a woman to the legislature.
"Originally posted at Squarestate.net"
She talked about how she should have the right to work without being tortured by her coworkers activating the chip that she claims was installed in her “genital area”, just by the use of electronic devices, such as cell phones.

stream lined by David Plouffe. The Obama administration is hoping to cut through the noise on the health care debate. Republicans have all but guaranteed that delays in passing the legislation have political implications built in.
