    Marketing is our bible. Average Americans don't question it. They watch TV, they buy, they prey they become rich some day.

    This shit is way too deep to simply legislate it out of existence. We don't stand a prayer against Fox' propaganda: Obama hates freedom, etc -- unless we (with Obama's leadership) can transform the nature of the conversation itself.

      There is a class war.  It's the dream of the middle class reformers, but it has failed in Obama's first two years and is going to fail if he does not change and fight for working people.

        ... that in the thick of the Bush economy the media would call Obama's first two years a failure no matter what he did.

        You want a politician who quickly abandons his deepest vision in the face of uncontrollable events? Try John McCain. Obama has shown far greater wisdom and maturity than that.
