      Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better. -- Harry S Truman
      Truman was the master at taking the fight to them. Politicians of today haven't seen anything like a fight from the Truman days. Nor the LBJ days. There's been no pressure, no unrelenting personal criticism.  

      We only get White House appeals for "bipartisanship," which by definition means "some of what you want and some of what we want."

      Republicans want the death of government.

      Accepting "some of that" for any deal is Insanity.

      "The law is meant to be my servant and not my master, still less my torturer and my murderer." -- James Baldwin. July 11, 1966.
