••can ye pass the acid test?••

ye who enter here be afraid, but do what ye must -- to defeat your fear ye must defy it.

& defeat it ye must, for only then can we begin to realize liberty & justice for all.

time bomb tick tock? nervous tic talk? war on war?

or just a blog crying in the wilderness, trying to make sense of it all, terror-fried by hate radio and FOX, the number of whose name is 666??? (coincidence?)

eml from daily kos
Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the Bush tax cuts. Today, in order to pay for those cuts, Congress continues to debate not whether to reduce programs for the poor and middle class, but how much those programs should be reduced by.
Enough with politicians who rule out ending tax cuts for millionaires being called "serious" about the deficit.
Enough with talk about tax cuts for billionaires helping the economy when over the last ten years household income did worse than during the Great Depression. (1)
Enough with politicians being called "courageous" for proposing the end of Medicare in order to pay for tax cuts for the rich.
Enough with Republicans holding the country hostage for further cuts while unemployment and foreclosures remain rampant, while the cost of food, gas and health care go up, and while families around the country fall into poverty.
Enough. We are not broke, and there is a better way out of this. Join with over 150,000 others to tell Congress: tax millionaires and billionaires instead.
Keep fighting,
Chris Bowers
