"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."

Hillary The Defiant

Many thanks to Dennis Perrin and IOZ for this.

The Democratic Party cannot blame the neo-cons for this one. They have allowed the party to be taken over by elitists who are out for their own self interests.

The decision to disallow the Florida and Michigan primaries was a poor one. Even if Hillary won both states, Obama would have received enough delegates to make the nomination. As it now stands, he will be a little short and it goes to the convention for inner-party fighting, unless he garbs enough supers before then.

Nope, it may result in the election of McCain and the Democratic leaders are to blame. I say blow the whole thing up and start all over. Bill and Hillary and Nancy and Howard are out and we start anew.

Check out today's Tribune. It says if the Democratic Party had the same "winner take all" as the GOP in primaries Hillary would be ahead in delegates 251-217.

The dems have A LOT of work to do.

It's not too late for them to blow the horse race and lose to McCain.

zWhy do you guys even WANT a Democrat in the White House right now? Especially a centrist GOP-Lite version? Things are gonna come crashing down, and neither Hillary or Obama have any real ideas. Better the Senescent Warmonger be in power so that "conservatism" can take the fall and blame for a generation.

I don't know Brian, right now I'm not sure it matters who's in the White House. I think we’re fucked regardless. The economy isn't going to right itself anytime soon and whether we like it or not we've very well likely entered the era of Peak Oil which doesn't bode well for an economy based on the fantasy that oil would be forever cheap and plentiful.

I've been spending a lot of time lately over at James Howard Kunstler's web site Clusterfuck Nation and Joe Bagent's efforts at his own superb site. Things don't look good my friend, not good at all.

Well the media is finally covering Hagee endorsement of McCain. Too bad there was not more coverage when Hagee attacked the Catholic Church. Although I think there are alot better things that can be launched against MCain than Hagee.

I wonder where these glorified stenographers were when the non-issue of Rev. Wright's (mostly accurate) comments were all the rage? McCain's association with the rabid racist Hagee goes back several years yet no one in the MSM bothered to raise what should have been obvious questions. Go figure.
