Two Days Left Until American citizens can be detained indefinitely without charges by their own government.

This is the text from the video link.  Daily Kos had a great post as well that you can read here: I think this information needs to be pinned to the top of every progressive blog on the web.  This is terrifying, outrageous, surreal, and totally unforgivable by this Congress

Obama’s Sham Negotiations…Kabuki Theatre for the Masses

Last night, Lawrence O’Donnel just about dropped to his knees in worship and awe over Barack Obama’s strategic multi-dimensional chess strategy around the current debt ceiling ‘negotiations’ with the Republican Congressional Leadership.  You can see the video here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/43748708#43748708 Basically, he made quite a eloquent (although false) case as to
