Progressive Action Spot

"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

Take Action Monday

The Bush Administration is desperate.

As it becomes clearer that the American public will no longer put up with the disaster that is Republican control, their attacks become more cruel and frequent. As we get closer to the mid-terms and closer to electing a Congress that is accountable to the people, and holds this Administration accountable, the necessity to hurry and pass laws that will retroactively immunize Bu$hCo and his minions from criminal prosecution becomes frantic.

The more that all of this occurs, the more that we must roll up our sleeves and get to work. This is the greatest fight of our lives.

    busy, busy, busy

    So many petitions. So many action items.

    Things are hopping and will be more busy as we near the mid-terms.

    This fight is so important.

    I think I lost my previous attempt to post Anjha. Sorry if I'm repeating myself.

    I've been trying to catch-up on my current events tonight. I don't know if the bad news is better received when metted out in small doses or when inhaled with one deep breath. This is definitely where I come to when I need to inhale or have some time to actually act on/against an issue.
