Let Obama Be Obama - It's Time to Get in the Game!

A stinging defeat for the Democrats in Massachusetts.

Health care reform legislation in jeopardy.

The U.S. Supreme Court rules that corporations, because they have the same standing as persons, should not limits placed on campaign contributions, that, have, for all intents and purpose, nearly completed the hijacking of the 14th Amendment and possibly derailed any possibility of serious campaign reform. For those who weren't watching it means while undocumented immigrants can't vote, foreign owned corporations can now buy a politician, with even greater impunity than before.

Take the time to watch this...

The are some nuanced and not so subtle differences, as well as similarities between the reality the current administration and the art that seems to imitate (or prefigure) it in these scenes. But I think you get my drift.

I don't know if there's anyone in the White House whose talking to the President like this. But I sure hope so! If not, somebody needs to start. I hope we see evidence of it tonight.
