A group of men with muckrakes, combing through the sludge of misinformation and cover-up, bring to light the truths that scoundrels, cheats and other unseemly characters would rather not discuss.

"Lady Leading the People"
Yep, it's time M_R. Time to put away the tow head on the trike, and to restore "Lady Liberty" as the motiff. It seems to me that whether we are writing about my topic of our nationalism or your varied topics of social, political, and economic injustices, we desire changes.
However, we are not doing too well. Obama, Geithner, Summers, et al have returned the economy to Wall Street and the bankers with only window dressing of reforms. There has been no attempt to re-enact Glass-Steagle on your side, and, on my side, the Obama Cabal has provided no leadership in returning economic nationalism.
Now, we see the back-peddling on health care with the so called "public option" being put on the back burner. Why is this happening? Because the bankers, the major investors, and the insurance companies have filled the pockets of Congress. It is said that these groups are spending a million dollars a day to lobby Congress. Where are the citizens? We are not at the table. We saw Baucus eliminate the supporters of a public option from his hearings and have them thrown out of the room.
It seems to me that the masses must be mobilized to take action, as Delacroix ably demonstrats in "Lady Leading the People". She is referred to as Lady Liberty. If we can't lead the masses to fill the streets of D.C. with millions of citizens demanding a public option, there will be no meaningful public option. Unless there is a Martin Luther King March on Washington, there seems to be little chance of real health care reform...You know? If 70% of the nation supports a public option, what is the problem of organizing a fraction of them to show up in D.C.? Lets find out how good we are.....
Been riding my tricycle around the block quite a few years. Got lots of scars. I don't take much crap, so don't go there.
Dislike bigots and Jesus-pimpers most of all and freely give them dope slaps at every opportunity.
