    people very upset with his turning the Government on people like he did.

    My Grandfather lived through the Great Depression and told us of the war and the New Deal and how he thought the country would be broken by now.

    He was right, and before he died we talked about Teddy Kennedy, and how politicians like him were needed, because too many of the corrupt corporate ones are in charge.

    It's hard for the kids because we are the last with that connection, and it's kind of up to us.

    Text books are being changed over the next coupla years to reduce the coverage on the New Deal progressive times, and I think that's a crime.

    I am 10 years ahead of you, about.  Clinton happened when I was married, and we were kind of political then.  My wife was more than I.  I got sucked into Open Source advocacy, and still do that, but the election of Bush changed things.

    By 2002-2003, I had found the netroots, and knew that was where I needed to be, as there was and is no other movement that's actually pulling for us.
