Now that Bill Moyers is ending Bill Moyers Journal...

... (here) is there any reason to own a teebee?

I say No! One less addiction! And detox doesn't take all that long; only a year or so.... Read more about Now that Bill Moyers is ending Bill Moyers Journal...

Other than that, Mr. Ackroyd, how was the farce?

And you thought pinning the bogometer on public option was no longer possible. Jay Ackroyd:

"An active member of a small clique"


Maybe somebody could add this link to the "What Do You Want To See Fixed at Open Left" thread. Just a thought. And do feel free to propagate to the lists. Read more about "An active member of a small clique"

Enjoy fish while you can

Ian Welsh. The BC salmon fishery is collapsing, just like the Grand Banks cod fishery already has. Once again, Charles Eisenstein:

Essentially, for the economy to continue growing and for the (interest-based) money system to remain viable, more and more of nature and human relationship must be monetized. For example, thirty years ago most meals were prepared at home; today some two-thirds are prepared outside, in restaurants or supermarket delis.

We are confident that with black majorities or near majorities in many of the state's largest counties, including several outside metro Atlanta, that some of these contests are eminently winnable by Green candidates willing to place the issue of mass incarceration squarely on the political front burner. We will be recruiting and training those candidates and the people who want to work with them to change this failed and destructive social policy.

It's just that nothing the "progressive" access bloggers are pushing -- including [a|the] [strong|robust]? public [health insurance]? [option|plan] -- is on the list. Quelle surprise. Read more about Talking points on HR3962 and the Senate Bill
