Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Move That Will Never End

Tired, sore, and - did I mention tired?

Still, what a momentous week for progressivism.  We might finally, as a nation, be willing to acknowledge that the South seceded over slavery and that the symbols of the Confederacy are symbols of racism and treason.  The ACA is cemented into law.  Marriage equality is the law of the land.

The only real "loss" was the continuation of the death penalty by lethal injection.

The arc of the universe and so forth...

It will be interesting to see how far crazy the GOP candidates go to appease the religious fundamentalists.
