What would force @speakerboehner to stop obstructing governance
REWRITTEN 7/6 after Boehner refused to do more than grudgingly pass a portion of the Obama jobs program, and then with unacceptable conditions
1. The President going to Capitol Hill and staying there until Boehner acts 2. John Lewis using direct action to replicate a Selma in the halls of Congress 3. All of Twitter tweeting @speakerboehner Pass full Obama jobs program 4. The mass media placing blame where it belongs 5. Speaker Boehner having a Damascus Road experience 6. A market plunge attributable to the stasis of the Speaker and Congress 7. Pressure from Mitt Romney You can guage the horrendous stasis that exists by concluding that not one of the seven notions above has the slightest possibility of coming to fruition Our society is so deeply mired in the spell that was cast when I overcame we and morality and ethics took a back seat to profit (thickening a wall of corruption that is still present) that the notion of the unprecedented eludes us We have lost our capacity to believe anything can be done This is known as crucifixion In such situations there remain people who do believe and who act together and whose victories inspire others to act Be sure that if we move forward at all it will be because people here and there lit the torches of tolerance democracy and helpfulness and practiced non-idolatry These values are the engines of revolution Those who have seen crucifixion many times know we are victors already and that we can act foolishly even face scorn with confidence because we do not value our preservation over the triumph of these values My Kindle Store Books
