"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent."Martin Luther King

Okay so I am off this morning, hiding under the covers with the Critters...( like I am rushing anywhere when it is Single digits and Negative Something when the wind blows ???).And yeah, truthfully I would have called in sick to see the Eric Holder Confirmation Hearings ( do read more about them at this HUFFPO link, THINGS are getting VERY interesting at the JD)....First off I am also OFF tonight...so yes, I will be here Liveblogging Bush ONE Last Time....His Finale Speech...The End of the Emperor's NO Clothes and this Titannical Administration....So come back later if you like...I will be here...

Oh, and you know how Rove and Bush Thought that those Emails are "missing"....well geez it turns out they may indeed have been Found after all.....
Meanwhile House Dems have proposed a Real Stimulus Package that Includes JOB Creation...it is Not a Bailout....
And the Senate voted to give OBAMA the next 350 Billion which is a good start....
And for some Fun do go visit at Redheaded Wisdom, she has a scathing post up about Bush and a wonderful Art Project....And then Dada did an Amazing Prophetic Post that is a MUST SEE...seriously...

A year ago this week Obama had just started winning his Primaries....we all have been on an Amazing Journey...He is Our Leader now, No More Bush..." One Voice Can Change Everything... " video::

"The Tide is Turning"...by Roger Waters....Awesome Video Assembled by Bob Cesna...

"I got Soul But I am Not a Soldier " by the Killers ( and yeah, it is a Nike ad....forgive me...but I love this song) It's funny, but if you think about it Bloggers are Quiet Warriors...and we should all remember these past 8 years, because there was indeed a Battle Raging Within this Country....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country." Lincoln's Second Annual Message to Congress, December 1, 1862.

Brilliant Martin Luther King quote! We cannot, must not let justice slide. The criminal accountability of the Bush/Cheney junta cannot be sidelined or ignored. Without justice and the affirmation of law, this country will not endure, even if it's new steward brings healing in other areas. Obama's true test of character and achievement of greatness will rise or fall on the principle of justice.

Perfect Lincoln quote! I hope Obama uses it in his inaugural address. "We must think anew ... and then we shall save our country". Absolutely!

love "I Got Soul but I'm not a Soldier". we listened to it a lot during the Olympics, but it always works, makes me feel like humans are not such lost causes afterall.

thanks for the shout-out. I want to see your Obamicon self!
