When we went on the civil rights marches with Dr. King and SCLC, back in the 1960s, the schedule always included getting all of the marchers to sign a Pledge of Nonviolence. So far, this practice has not extended to Occupy activities. We need to get better. “Fight the cops”
Conservative Left emerges at CPAC leading the presidential straw poll. Details of the Ron Paul speech put him to the Left of every active, Federally elected American politician.
David Cameron is trying to implement a Mubarak-style giveaway. He intends to legalize a specific tax cheat scheme but only for his largest contributors.

WaPo’s Mark Feldstein wants Americans to believe that bribery among the great and powerful is great stuff, The American Way. Telling the People about it is bad. Telling about it helped “unleash” today’s scandal culture. SIOKIYAR.
We are getting an ambassador in Damascus. High time. Robert Ford is the new ambassador.
