    Seriously...  George W Bush?!?!?!

    About the only area he might have some expertise in is clearing brush (and I'll bet he had some illegal doing all the heavy work).

    Life isn't fair but you should try to leave it fairer than you found it.

        The names change depending upon what situation is being discussed.  

        Here at Daily Kos when someone is talking about TPTB they usually mean Markos himself plus the front pagers.  

        This diary is discussing the economy, so TPTB could mean the super-rich tycoons who control everything and buy elections.  The .1%.  

        At my house, TPTB mean "Mommy" and "Daddy."  Which is funny, because our lives seem to revolve heavily around our kid and I don't feel very powerful most days.  :^)
