This is a piece I've been soul searching about for the last few days.  Don't worry, it's not going to be "true confessions" or anything particularly awkward, but it is going to be a very personal statement. However, even though it's going to about "personal issues", I'd like to think it will be useful to many folks in a variety of ways.

 

Lately I've written 2 or 3 pieces about the "tone" set by Obama's appointments to date.  For me, they have been excessively right wing dems, even though it can be argued (from the polls, etc.) that the people whose passion, money, and elaborate infrastructure, created over several years, got Obama through the primaries and elected him President were  progressives and moderates.

 

However, alas, anything remotely "left wing" is once again a dirty word, and several of Obama's appointments can't seem to let a day go by without trashing progressives. 

 

So, lot's to be concerned about and, yes, a little outraged if you believe that Obama's collective "team" (now nearly totally completed) is far to the right of the people who elected him. 

 

Of course to be fair, the bigger picture of this is the fundamental tragedy of America, i.e., that "both" of our political parties are far to the right of the vast majority of American citizens and voters.  Indeed, millions of Americans now realize that it's absurd to talk about our "two party" system, since the 2006 dem congress proved once and for all that practically all dem members of this congress were/are closet Republicans who slavishly obeyed Bush's slightest whims about EVERYTHING.

 

But, having said just a few things about some contemporary political issues, may I go back to the personal "sharings"?

 

Like most even moderate Americans, I have been increasingly horrified by watching the murder of our Constitutional Republic,the gestalt of ecosystems necessary for human existence, the American economy, and most of all the slaughter of our children in the Bush/Cheney money cow oil wars for the elites which have already murdered tens (hundreds?) of thousands of innocent human beings (with the standard percentage of children).

 

And gradually, gradually I began to write pieces which tried in some small way to rise the challenge of ATTACKING these pug/fascist devils from hell (who the 2006 dem congress showed were equally bought and paid for dems).
