Now that Obama has secured the Presidency for the next four years, what can we expect? Will he revisit some of the original promises he made during his original campaign? Will he find his comfortable shoes to walk the labor lines with those workers threatened by the corporate powers that be? Will he end the Bush/Cheney Terror Wars once and for all? Stop the drone strikes against innocent Muslim citizens? Propose some meaningful legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?
Anything like that?
Amy Goodman host of “Democracy Now” and writing for TruthDig, has some hopes for this second term: http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/now_the_work_of_movements_begins_20121107/?ln
The election is over, and President Barack Obama will continue as the 44th president of the United States. There will be much attention paid by the pundit class to the mechanics of the campaigns, to the techniques of microtargeting potential voters, the effectiveness of get-out-the-vote efforts. The media analysts will fill the hours on the cable news networks, proffering post-election chestnuts about the accuracy of polls, or about either candidate’s success with one demographic or another. Missed by the mainstream media, but churning at the heart of our democracy, are social movements, movements without which President Obama would not have been re-elected.
President Obama is a former community organizer himself. What happens when the community organizer in chief becomes the commander in chief? Who does the community organizing then? Interestingly, he offered a suggestion when speaking at a small New Jersey campaign event when he was first running for president. Someone asked him what he would do about the Middle East. He answered with a story about the legendary 20th-century organizer A. Philip Randolph meeting with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Randolph described to FDR the condition of black people in America, the condition of working people. Reportedly, FDR listened intently, then replied: “I agree with everything you have said. Now, make me do it.” That was the message Obama repeated.
There you have it. Make him do it. You’ve got an invitation from the president himself.
For years during the Bush administration, people felt they were hitting their heads against a brick wall. With the first election of President Obama, the wall had become a door, but it was only open a crack. The question was, Would it be kicked open or slammed shut? That is not up to that one person in the White House, no matter how powerful. That is the work of movements.
Ben Jealous is a serious organizer with a long list of accomplishments, and a longer list of things to get done, as the president and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. 2013, he notes, is a year of significant anniversaries, among them the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, as well as the 50th anniversaries of the assassination of Medgar Evers and the Birmingham, Ala., church bombing that killed four young African-American girls. President Obama’s 2013 Inauguration will occur on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Jealous told me on election night, as Mitt Romney was about to give his concession speech, “We have to stay in movement mode.”
Young immigrants are doing just that. Undocumented students, getting arrested in sit-ins in politicians’ offices, are the modern-day civil-rights movement. There are other vibrant movements as well, like Occupy Wall Street, like the fight for marriage equality, which won four out of four statewide initiatives on Election Day. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, and despite the enormous resources expended by the fossil-fuel industry to cloud the issue, climate change and what to do about it is now a topic that President Obama hints he will address, saying, in his victory address in election night, “Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. … We want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt, that isn’t weakened by inequality, that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”
It was pressure from grass-roots activists protesting in front of the White House that pushed Obama to delay a decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, proposed to run from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. More than 1,200 people were arrested at a series of protests at the White House one year ago. Now a group is blocking the construction of the southern leg of that pipeline, risking arrest and even injury, with direct-action blockades in tree-sits and tripods in Winnsboro, Texas, two hours east of Dallas.
When those who are used to having the president’s ear whisper their demands to him in the Oval Office, if he can’t point out the window and say, “If I do as you ask, they will storm the Bastille,” if there is no one out there, then he is in big trouble. That’s when he agrees with you. What about when he doesn’t?
The president of the United States is the most powerful person on Earth. But there is a force more powerful: People organized around this country, fighting for a more just, sustainable world. Now the real work begins.

10. I was on a business trip that took us to Gruyere, Switzerland.
One of the most beautiful places on earth, and we were there the week before Christmas.
We walked uphill toward the castle, it was snowing lightly, and the town on the approach was all decorated for the season. We stopped at a little tavern, complete with fireplace, and they served us fondue and raclette.
(Pause to die a little)
Fondue pots and bread on the table, along with raclette burners. You put cheese (a luscious, creamy, melty version of Gruyere) in little pans on the lower level. Then you put mini-potatoes, onions, and cornichons (tiny pickles) on a grill on the top. You dunk the top stuff into the melted cheese and wait to go into cardiac arrest.
(Die a little more)
It is so fabulous. Trader Joe's sells raclette cheese. Arteries be damned!

23. Aren't they? Fun to watch, though.
(Well, except for bloviator Karl Rove. I can read his rants, but having to look at his smarmy face is too much. And I'm a fan of zombie movies.)

13. Hi ralps & truthseekers.
I'm feeling so bad about cal04 being without power for so long. I hope she is able to read this and know that we are all concerned.

26. Here's what a motion to proceed is
motion to proceed to consider - A motion, usually offered by the majority leader to bring a bill or other measure up for consideration. The usual way of bringing a measure to the floor when unanimous consent to do so cannot be obtained. For legislative business, the motion is debatable under most circumstances, and therefore may be subject to filibuster.
