Down with the DCCC

It’s a perfect example of the failure of the Democratic party: they allowed the FISA bill to pass, and essentially revealed that they don’t give a damn about civil liberties. Revere is right: don’t support them. Don’t donate to the DCCC. He recommends ActBlue, which does look like a very good organization that actually promotes progressive politics rather than the craven do-nothing politics of the current party organization.

You should also voice your displeasure with your representatives. I gave Senator Amy Klobuchar grief for her spinelessness, and also yelled at my representative
Collin Peterson, who allowed the house bill to pass (and other Minnesotans might cuss out Tim Walz, if you’re in his district). What good is a party that won’t represent any ideals, and instead seems to be a gathering of cowards who do nothing to oppose the Republican bullying?

    Interview with Ralph

    Spoiler? I think not. Though depends on how you define democracy.

    An Unreasonable Man – not unlike Dawkins. If you haven’t already, please check out this movie.

    What he has to offer. I have a feeling that most of you will probably find yourselves agreeing with his positions on so many issues.

    Either people start voting for third-party candidates (Bloomberg, Nader etc.), or continue to be in a dysfunctional relationship with Democrats and keep giving them chances, irrationally hoping that they’ll somehow magically change, though have no incentive whatsoever to move to the left, given they take progressives’ votes for granted.

    Also, won’t vote for him because he can’t win (or is it the other way round? Did you also vote for Reagan? Because if you didn’t your vote was wasted.) reminds me of the chicken-and-egg problem/fable. Someone has to take the brave step to break out of this circular argument otherwise it’s the same old, same old.
