"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

I hadn't planned on posting for another few days but I couldn't resist sharing this gem from Dennis Perrin wherein he wipes the floor with Marc Cooper's ass over the Samantha Power Affair. As most who have been watching the Clinton-Obama spat over Power's recent comments about the Hillerator know by now, Power stepped down from her advisory position with Obama's campaign over comments that, quite frankly, were rather tame and a no brainer when one briefly reviews Hillary's record--the bitch is a monster. So what? Anyway, I'm not sure if many people caught Perrin's piece which, for this reader, was the best response so far to all the liberal hand-wringing over Power's "banishment" to her comfortable post at Harvard.

Looks like Hillary and Obama are using both barrels and then the person making the comment steps down. The candidates play kissy face, but I foresee more of the mud slinging.

Last week when GOP supporters said the in-fighting would help McCain, I thought they started the St. Patrick's Day celebrations too early. Today, I ponder, if they can be correct.

It's certainly a distraction (as it no doubt is intended to) but I'm not sure it will matter once the bottom falls out of the economy. Notice that the Issue Of the Day is the opinion of Obama's pastor, not what the fucking candidate actually thinks about the Bear Stearns bailout or the permanent bases we're constructing in Iraq. In other words the issues are, as usual, out of the spotlight.
