Liberals have gone limp. Progressives have wilted their passion, or lost sight of their mission. Democrats have been co-opted and are settling for far too little.

We've made progress in waking up America. But now it's time WE wake ourselves up, elevate our standards, reinvigorate our values and make a lot of noise and DEMAND a hell of a lot more from the current crop of candidates. 

I just read that the Walmart’s Walton family has as much assets as the bottom 120 million Americans combined.

And this week, the airline industry seems to be imploding, with ATA airline shutting down for financial reasons and other airlines cancelling massive numbers of flights for safety reasons.

We saw Treasury secretary Paulson pull a shock doctrine move, claiming to help out the financial markets mess by deregulating the market and giving more controls to the privately run Federal reserve.

Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal reports that hospitals and over the counter drug manufacturers were disappointed that not as many people were afflicted with the flu this year.

Two days ago, Arlen Specter threatened to shut down the senate because the Democratic majority wasn’t approving enough appellate judges—that they were fillibustering too much. Funny thing though. The Dems have done a better job than the Republicans did and the Republicans have use the fillibuster to block more bills than any congress in history.

The US lost 80,000 Jobs last month, the biggest monthly loss in five years, another sign we’re in a recession.

Record percentages of people are on food stamps.

The price of corn is over $6.00 a bushel up from average prices of under $2.00 through 2005.

The cost of a loaf of bread or a bagel is up because wheat prices are up due to exports.

I go to the supermarket and everywhere I look, I see depressed faces. No wonder. I’m in sticker shock everywhere I turn, and that’s after filling up my tank at the bargain price of $3.179 a gallon.

But George Bush and the Dem congress have cobbled together a $600 “fix” for the economy. Whoopee doo!

Big surprise—81% of voters say the US is heading in the wrong direction.

So why are Hillary AND Obama trying to look like Republicans lite? Why are they afraid to take real, solid stands on the big issues? Why aren’t the Democrats in congress taking more strident action?

I’ll tell you why. It’s because all these dems—in congress, in the primaries—they think they’re pretty sure to win if things stay this bad. That’s the same reason they’re not starting impeachment hearings on blatant criminals Bush and Cheney.

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.
