  •  I am not at all impressed with their talk, (7+ / 0-)

    and I am a firm believer that talking is powerful politics.

    Their talk is inoculative or palliative in nature. It's desensitizing and deadening, much like the corporate media when covering uncomfortable topics for the Establishment.

    It's crafted to put the listener at ease with what is being done.

    If someone were to strongly challenge the NSA, I would not be giving them shit for 'just talking' if they were not able to act - Kucinich comes to mind here...

    When truth is hidden or misleading, just talking about the truth is powerful stuff.

    "I welcome that debate [about secret courts and domestic spying that does not exist - through proper channels, of course] is exactly what I'm talking about.

    Those words fit the actions. I find most of the Democratic Establishment's words fit their actions.

    It's really cynical stuff.

    Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
