    no talk among them or Democratic leadership of addressing climate change to the degree and in the time frame science says is needed. Nor has there ever been in 20 years any serious leadership talk of working to assemble the political strength in office needed to do this or to address the array of economic crises facing the country.

    In fact during the 1st 2 years of the Admin, the talk we heard was, first, that we lacked the strength to act appropriately on the entire array of crises facing the country at the present time, but second, liberals had to expect to lose strength in the upcoming midterm.

    Just how many centuries of that kind of politicking would it take for Democratic governance to assemble the power to address climate change?

    I support the President and the Democrats against the Republicans in this imminent election.

    But it makes no difference to humanity which reason government won't act: denying the problem or denying to fight it adequately to avoid energizing the far more dangerous loons on the left.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

      He identifies as a Blue Dog but he's ferocious about climate change.  

      "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
