Choosing Ryan is not bold nor does it reset the Romney effort. It favors the rich, raises the debt and lacerates women and everybody else.

Ryan won't help Romney with independents, women and anyone who cares about their health care prospects. Nate says it's a loser's choice.

Let's be revolted now. Mitt = the power of money and the GOP and the Big Lie to subvert democracy. And let's see he loses.

Obama Truth - "On his first full day, he froze White House salaries." /go here and start posting!

The only thing holding our economy back now is the GOP. And it still strains to recover.

Rest easy Ryan lies as much as Romney. Obama agenda is only about 1/4 passed. GOP stonewalled from day one.

The Biden-Ryan debate should be priceless. "Now Paul..."

4 Things Mitt can't escape - tax scrutiny, checkered past, evolution to wingnut status, daily gaffes.

"The nation is waking up to the conspiracy to block Obama at every turn "

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us.
