    That's something I'd like to see.  When you've got lemons, make lemonade.

    Or something.

    •  If our reps were strong and smart (1+ / 0-)

      that's what they'd be doing.  I have little faith in Congress, regardless of how many D's show up on the rolls however.

      Every time something goes wrong, no matter how catastrophic, the first though should be "How can I make this work to my/our/everyone's advantage?".  Instead it seems to be they ask "How can we not get in trouble for this?".

    •  When The Inchoate Mass Begins to Stir (0+ / 0-)

      In really hard times the rules of the game are altered. The inchoate mass begins to stir. It becomes potent, and when it strikes,... it strikes with incredible emphasis. Those are the rare occasions when a national will emerges from the scattered, specialized, or indifferent blocs of voters who ordinarily elect the politicians. Those are for good or evil the great occasions in a nation’s history.

      Remember Addie Polk. We, as a Country, are not what we say, but what we do.
