Yes, I'm thrilled at even the faint smell of social justice

truth be told, i've been a champion of social justice since i can remember... i've bridled at the incredible IN-justices i've witnessed over my half-century plus of observing such things and have come close to despairing that there would ever be an accounting... maybe this is it and maybe it isn't... lord knows, we're still a long way from a real accounting but i'm going to grab some optimism where i see it... i just hope it's not of the obama variety...

robert scheer...

How can anyone possessed of the faintest sense of social justice not thrill to the Occupy Wall Street movement now spreading throughout the country? One need not be religiously doctrinaire to recognize this as a “come to Jesus moment” when the money-changers stand exposed and the victims of their avarice are at long last offered succor.


With 25 million Americans unsuccessfully looking for full-time work, 50 million experiencing mortgage foreclosure and an all-time high of 46.2 percent living in poverty, including 22 percent of all children, isn’t it logical that the faux populism of the tea party be confronted with a progressive alternative?

the tea party emitted a bad odor from the very start... i could never believe that people so impassioned about getting government out of our business could be so totally blind to those who are calling the shots behind the governmental curtain...
