ADVICE TO OWS-EVERYWHERE! AGENDA: CONSTITUTIONIAL CONVENTION

There comes a time in the life of a nation when it is time to make choices, how are we going to institute effective change and reform our badly broken government. We now have a Legislative Branch filled with spoiled schoolyard children, who would prefer to see the country slip past the point of no-return, where they would prefer their citizens to be destitute and desperate in order to gain more and more power.

Fear and Loathing of Public Policy: Shrinking Access to Post Secondary Education = Permanent Underclass

What are we going to do since the cost of education is skyrocketing? Students these days graduate with enormous debt or they don't get the opportunity to attend post secondary training.

Long ago when I started college it was an inexpensive 1200.00 a year that included books. I didn't really have debt when I graduated from college. That isn't the case for students today, and with the cost of tuition rising as much as 20% in one year at some state colleges, soon enough the middle and lower classes will be unable to afford post-secondary education. And the thing is, we'd become a thriving first world nation in part because we expanded access to education to almost everyone.

Democrat Like Me

For years the idea haunted me, if a Republican became a Democrat in the deep North what adjustments would she have to make?

And that is how it began, that fateful day in 1984 was the day I decided to infiltrate the Democratic party and turn them all into Liberal Republicans! I knew I could do it if I could just find a way to fit in first, to blend in, so I went to the doctor's office for some help.

What's Your Plan Progressives?

So before I head out on a 50 miler today, I am going to ask the question, what is your plan to getting what you want?

Chris Matthews to Joe Walsh (R) Il 8th District, "He's Your President Too."

Let's get this out there, Rep. Joe Walsh is discrediting a good name. The Joe Walsh I remember, played guitar had his own band and sang songs like All Night Laundromat Blues.. this guy, well he just doesn't seem like he is that much fun and he is trashing what is otherwise a very good name!

Murdoch Narrowly Escapes Getting Creamed

On snap, Wendy Deng has some great reflexes! She spikes a shaving cream pie, intended for her husband back into the attackers face! I mean this is actually some pretty good stuff! Who knew there was something to be admired about Rupert Murdoch... that is right, his wife. This happened about 10 minutes ago.

I thought today would be a good day to record some hearings! However I didn't realize I would get to see this:

High Altitude Training -- From Sea Level

I am training for a 120 mile ride in the Pintler Mountains this August. It's  going to be a challenge, I live right at sea level. I am excited but anxious. The CHaFE was a pretty grueling ride, some of those hills we long assed climbs, not to difficult to complete but I actually got off my bike and walked a quarter mile during that ride, I've never done that before.

"The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give." — Philip K. Dick If you want that good feeling that comes from doing things for other folks then you have to pay for it in abuse and misunderstanding. Zora Neale Hurston
