Here’s some detailed information about the new FISA legislation STRENGTHENING FISA and giving Bush…nothing.
I must say, I think that Fascists have a point about liberals and progressives. Some of us ARE whiners. Moreover, we are so ready to believe the worst about our representatives that we are very easily led by the rightwing echo chamber into screaming how worthless, how weak, how useless the Democrats are, even when they are doing the right thing. Heckuva job, us!!!
Say what you will about the Fascists, and believe me, I do – they don’t give up. It took them 40 years to get where they are today, and they’ve had a whole six years of sweet, sweet power because of their efforts. They have also succeeded in completely destroying the Republican Party and uniting 70% of the country behind the progressive agenda, but hey! They were committed and they accomplished their objectives for a time. Why can’t we borrow some of their spine and determination?
And why can’t we acknowledge that yes, Democrats ARE better than Fascists. Yes, they do a lot of things right. Yes, their ideas are usually good. Deal with it. Our side is the right side!
I’m so tired of hearing people bitch and moan about the Democratic Congress. If we won’t even take the trouble to correctly inform ourselves, then we shouldn’t devolve into hysteria every time a misleading story is planted about in the traditional media.
We should all take a breath before we jump.
