The Washington Post is reporting a poll showing that 70% of Americans are supporting Obama's tax package, and that 31% of liberals specifically support continuing the tax cuts for the rich. I see this as two things-- one, WaPo is continuing to serve the power elite, just as CNN and the NY Times. Two, there are a lot of people who call themselves liberals who are dupes, supporting the duopoly-- people who use platitudes about patience and about progressives insisting on too much, having unrealistic expectations.

Please either read Chris Hedges new book, The Death of the Liberal Class, and or, listen to my interview with Chris. Rob Kall Podcast: Chris Hedges; Death of the Liberal Class and a Call For Rebellion

We are facing a time when liberals are again being attacked and marginalized. I won't use the word liberal anymore. Hedges has shown how liberals are used and worked by the MSM and the power elite We need to take tougher stands and that will mean standing up to weak spined Democrats and people who call themselves liberal and progressive who call for settling for Obama's chronic presidential Fail moments. We have to stop. We have to stop accepting the varieties of feces diarea on the menu and demand a menu with real, solid options, no pun intended. We're facing two years of conservative control of the house and the White House. Let's face it. Progressives are in a rough situation.

We're being attacked by the President and his surrogates in the mainstream media. We're being sold out by elected members of congress. We're being attacked by limp, spineless liberals who, like familial abuse victims keep going back for more, excusing their abusers.

it's time to stand up to the people who say they are liberal and then defend the worst right wing decisions. It's time to fight back when supposed Democrats tell us to accept what we've been given.

America, democracy, the bill of rights, our freedoms are all on the line. Fascists like Joe Lieberman and most of the Republican party, outside of Ron Paul and his supporters want to kill or jail Julian Assange. CNN likens Asssange to a criminal. So does worthless Obama co-failure Eric Holder, who could go down in history as worse than Alberto Gonzales.

I don't have a lot of answers. We need to keep asking a lot of questions, making a lot of noise and refusing to accept the weakness, the spinelessness, the caving in without negotiating, the acceptance of failure as good enough.

I get comments on facebook every day from liberals defending Obama's failure, defending his tax program. I don't take it anymore. During WWII there were people who helped sell the Warsaw Ghetto. There were people who tried to silence critics of the Nazis. They thought they were being reasonable, moderate helpers. They were enabling evil, enabling horrors.

I am not saying that the people defending Obama are in the same class as the Warsaw Ghetto defenders, but they are defending and enabling things that are very wrong.

We need to stay together and fight the failed Obama presidency. I am more convinced than ever that Obama is a failure that he must be a one term president. Look at Peter Orszag, his former OMB director. Now he's taking a multi-million dollar a year job with Citigroup, a company his policies had huge effects upon. We are screwed. We are being screwed. At least we can say it and call it and face it.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
