Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

I Am So Proud . . .

. . . of my lovely wife.

Here is a message she sent to Harry Reid today.

I want Senator Bernie Sanders on that super committee that is being formed. I also do not want any "Blue-dog" Democrats on the committee.  It is vital that the Democrats you select are strong-willed and determined to protect the poor, the sick and the elderly among us from the Republicans, who care only for their rich benefactors.  

I am tired of the way things have been going and there must be a change.  It is time for the Democrats to stand up for the little guy.  That's what they have always done.

I am also sick of hearing the phrase, "ask the rich to do their part".  What's with the ASKING?  Nobody asked the rest of us.  It is time to TELL them to do their part.

Mrs. JzB

She sent a similar message to Nancy Pelosi, with Dennis Kucinich as the prime recommendation.

Have you written your Senator?  Your Congressperson?  You should.

Today is also the LW's birthday.  Happy Birthday, baby.  You are the best.

It will be interesting to see the make up of the committee. It will also say a lot about what they want to accomplish.

I think an impasse is the best we can hope for. Democratic resolve must stand up to Rethug intransigence.

Otherwise, WASF!
