Join me and millions of others in liking Obamacare.

Sometimes words coined in spite become the battle-cry of movements that prevail in history. "Methodists" was originally a term of derision aimed at the followers of John and Charles Wesley. 
Now Obamacare is the cry of millions who benefit from it and are thankful. 
Join me and millions of others in liking Obamacare.

Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

I cannot imagine Willard Mitt Romney as President

Obama Says 'If I Had a Son, He'd Look Like Trayvon' - NYTimes.com:
'via Blog this'
This video is why I am glad that Barack Obama is President He is - as the Bard said - an ever-fixed bark who looks on tempests and is never shaken - close, but finally the one who says and does the right thing in a universe where no action is ever wholly right

President Barack Obama Versus The Hate Mongers

Frank Schaeffer: Obama Is Now and Will Be a Great President: "If you think that president Obama played the Republicans in the last lame duck congress like a violin just wait until after 2012 when the rotten Tea Party will be about as relevant as 1930s hate monger radio priest: Charles Coughlin (the 'father' of hate radio), is today."

Sure there are things I feel President Obama needs to do that he has not done. Like pardon Bradley Manning.

But over all I am thankful every day that we are watching the right compound its own false premises and the left and center begin to coalesce around the man who took the all Americans meme and ran with it.




Karl Rove and his cronies should likely be in jail

Rove Under The Gun

Karl Rove and his cronies should likely be in jailThey violate the law by disguising political shock troopsadvertising their tawdry enterprises astax exempt organizations bearing deceptive humane positive names that disguise their clear political goals
The IRS should prosecute immediately

Patrick Kennedy Speaks Out

Salient Email:
You may remember the attack ads and outright lies that Republicans threw our way during the health care fight two years ago. Their dirty tactics know no bounds.And now with the disastrous Citizens United decision, the attacks from Karl Rove and his multi-million dollar SuperPAC friends to smear President Obama’s record will only become faster and more furious.If they have their way, health reform would be repealed, children could once again be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition, insurance companies could discriminate against those in need of mental health care, and seniors could be forced to choose between paying for life-saving prescription drugs and rent or food.We can’t let that happen. There is no time for sitting on the sidelines. We must act now.

Obama, Warren Kaine over Romney, Brown, Allen

From Senator Patty Murray Via Email
National: President Obama (D) 52, Mitt Romney (R) 41 MA: Elizabeth Warren (D) 46, Scott Brown (R) 41 VA: Tim Kaine (D) 47, George Allen (R) 44 Let's hope these hold and are joined by a thousand other victory margins in races local, state and national.

This is our best way to talk back to those who dug the ditch we're in

Both parties participated in the attack on regulation

It is clear that the very root of today's divide  is found in the euphoric move  at he end of the Clinton era  to have done with restraints on banks   to repeal of Glass-Steagall Act 
Glass-Steagall was a harness on greed It forbade banks from being investment houses
Complicity in the repeal of Glass-Steagall was shared by thousands  but Greenspan, Paulson and Summers So were President Clinton and Phil Gramm  The savings Clinton effected were lost in a stroke of the pen and today regulation remains under severe attack 
This is the backdrop of Elizabeth Warren's  salutary effort in Massachusetts  I am told she does best talking directly to voters Money pours in to defeat her She can and will win
Both parties participated in the huge trough-feeding  engendered by the repeal of Glass-Steagall We remain prey the nominalist forces  of me me me that brought us to the cliff  a cliff no less lethal  than the cliff in the Bard's Lear

Cyber-communities would radically reduce racial profiling

Fighting Stop-and-Frisk Tactic, but Hitting Racial Divide - NYTimes.com:
'via Blog this'
Imagine your area of 10,000 people is designated a car free community Imagine that all who work there also live there Imagine all aspects of a city included in the mix Shops education workplace entertainment health Imagine that's because it is car free Children play People walk without fear Vacant lots become squares or playgrounds That such policing as there is is done by trained persons Who live in the community
Imagine that we think for a bit of life without subservience to the corporate system of Obligatory sprawl Obligatory car ownership Obligatory subservience to the needs of car traffic
You have just begun to think about how we could actually begin to eliminate The disease of racial profiling

My interest in the world of games, casinos and such

Monopololisto Man: The Weird Way Gamblers Treat Money: "Monopolisto Man was certainly in the same league with legendary gamblers in one respect. His treatment of money itself was highly eccentric."

Monopolisto Man (the blog)  is my fictional vehicle for discussing (fictionally) my interest in the world of games, casinos and such.

I have little place for ethics in such a system as I have.

I have little place for ethics in such a system as I have. I see ethics as secondary to the willed application of values to the making of decisions. To me the question is what are the ontological values. My pragmatic answer came in the 1970s when a colleague and I taught a group of teenagers the Gospel of Mark (the text of which I had turned into songs) and saw the actual results of this process in events in their lives and those related to them. I concluded that the ontological values can be described by the words tolerance, democracy, helpfulness and that the overarching value in which these rest is non-idolatry. I feel these are a reasonable approximation of the active, accessible realities that - when activated by individual will - create history. Insofar as history is a vale of tears it is because we do not honor these values. Non-idolatry incidentally is the basis of scientific method IMO. "The good" and "justice" are descriptions of the goals of living, but…
