SMOKINCHOICES (and other musings)

LISTEN, LIBERAL !

The MIRAGE of political ins and outs

What we Americans (you and I) are living through everyday isn’t isolated to our sinking masses who struggle to claim our dreams and aspirations against what ‘seems’ to be stacked odds,  to be sure.   Any intelligent, moral person whether highly placed in life or among those really struggling to ‘get by’. . . if we know anything about our own history, our beginnings. . . how we founded our nation and government and the principles that were so vital and meaningful to us then and now – – the evidence IS everywhere.  

Once again, Bill Moyers and Company has brought a very fine piece to our attention.  While it is only an introduction to this book, it grabbed my attention (almost disturbingly),  including the many comments which followed it.  I sincerely want to read it.  So I’m gonna call the library and see if I have a chance to  get on a list (budget ya know, and as a virgo-type, buying books is a rather large weakness).  Anyway,  I really NEED to share this with you. . .misery loves company I guess,  but it seems to explain why many of us are so wrought over our Democratic party preferences. . .and at a loss to get why some do what they do. . . when it seems so clear to me. . . .  but what do I know?     Jan
