Too bad nobody's watching Olberman

The Nation -- If you picked up the New York Times on October 18, you'd have had little reason to think it was a particularly significant day in American history. While the front page featured a photo of George W. Bush signing a new law at the White House the previous day, the story about the Military Commissions Act--which the Times never named--was buried in a 750-word piece on page A20. "It is a rare occasion when a President can sign a bill he knows will save American lives" was the first of several quotes of praise from the President that were high up in the article. Further down, a few Democrats objected to the bill, but from the article's limited explanation of the law it was hard to understand why.

Strength without compassion is brutality. Compassion without strength is weakness.

We must train our minds to desire what the situation demands.

I sometimes wonder if our grandchildren will ask us why we weren't marching in the streets?

because we want our money's worth from our $2000 HDTVs and our $100/month cable.

Hate to admit it, but incognegro is pretty much right.

We marched and marched and marched and marched and protested and protested and protested. Seemed like we were making a difference, but they just ignored us.

The revolution will no be televised

You will not be able to stay home, brother.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on @#$%& and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.
