  •  There is no center. (5+ / 0-)

    Chasing the center is chasing rainbows. When you chase the center, the center moves. What passed for the "left" looks pretty right-wing. Can anyone imagine that national parks, social security, medicare or civil rights could be passed today? The CCC or the WPA (I regularly see 70 year old WPA projects that are in amazing shape) would be unthinkable today.

    No matter how much the media scolds us and screams claiming that we've moved to the left, but like most of what comes out of the media, it's not true.

    The union movement became strong in the face of violent resistance. A lot of people died to have a strong union movement. Surely we can rebuild the union movement, the right has awoken a sleeping giant. America was at its strongest when unions were strongest. Union workers built the ships of WWII. Unions used to be a pillar of American society. We let that get nibbled away. No more.

    The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.

      I love your signature line. I have been intrigued by the wolf family ever since I read Barry Lopez's book "Of Wolves and Man".

      It would be a positive thing if more people read that book.

      Of course Newt would reject it as wolves are monogamous.

      It's important to keep moving matter what.
