Why I'm Wimping Out
As I'm sure you've noted by now, I have become so disenchanted with things as they stand in the blogging community, I've bowed out of the fray.
Mary Ellen of the Divine Democrat is, fortunately, made of sterner stuff. Please see her blog for The State of the Progressive Party at the moment. Her post [March 15, 2008] sums up the situation quite thoroughly.
As I commented on her site: "I expect this sort of behavior from the far right wingnuts.
When the 'progressives' began indulging in it I was amazed. No more, though.
THIS is why I've started posting cat pics on my blog. . . .
If the 'progressives' don't see the writing on the wall and continue to be as vicious as they are being now, they will deserve everything they get when President McCain appoints another SCOTUS judge, Roe v Wade is overturned and torture by our gov't continues to be condoned after the election" which will be a Republican landslide.
Please note the quotes below:
"Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be a spirit of tolerance in the entire population."
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
"Nothing short of an aroused public can change things, nothing less than democracy is at stake. -- Bill Moyers
We ignore these truths at our peril.
