    paper defending the Ryan plan to "save" Medicare and attacking President Obama for cutting $500 billion.  They will never stop with the propaganda, so we cannot let up for a day, no matter what the polls say.

      You are right.  We can't let up.  They are going to keep fighting with their lies.  If you tell a lie often enough has worked for them for so long.  We can't allow this!

      I just had a guest editorial published in the Galveston Daily News.  The right wing crazies went...well crazy.  They called me a liar.  Said that all the things I said were slogans.  Wrote that I said things that I didn't.  This column generated close to 100 comments. This is highly unusual.  Normally, you would only see 5 or 10. Some of the comments were actually in support of what I said.

      I normally don't respond, but this time I did.  I stated that these people who were doing the ad hominem attacks had lost the argument when they did that.  I also pointed out that 80% of Americans agree with me.  That they were standing for the minority.  That it was time we started standing with the majority.

      So, we need to keep it up.  We can't allow 20% of the people, most of them crazy to determine what is best for the country and the people.
