3. This "should" read,

Republicans and "Centrist New Democrats" Working together,
because the results of THIS "bi-partisanship" is always more Conservative Republican Policy.
There is NO movement back to The Traditional Pro-LABOR, Pro-Working Class, FDR/LBJ LEFT,
because those voices are Shut Out of the "debate".




"If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for,
at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them."

--- Paul Wellstone

4. Paul, Lewis, and I were in college together

Wellstone was in grad school when Black and I were undergrads at Carolina. I knew Paul better back then. Lewis was in my class and lives here now. Don't know if they knew each other.

5. Truth and Comedy...

Where would we be without comedians? They tell the truth that goes unspoken, and it makes us laugh. Lewis Black, Jon Stewart, Steven Cobert, and rest their souls, George Carlin, Will Rogers and on and on. I love to hear and see Lewis. His hand gestures and facial expressions enhance his humor so much. Thanks for bringing this clip toady. Will probably come back and listen to it again.

6. Pay people to build a "big fuckin' thing."

And then the economy will explode. Because people'll say, "I gotta see the big fuckin' thing." And then there will be a Big Fuckin' Thing Restaurant, a Big Fuckin' Thing hotel and casino, a Big Fuckin' Thing Spa!

There is a theory that this is why the Pyramids were built--to keep people busy and stimulate the economy with a giant public works program. They were not built by slave labor. Free men built them. And it would have created a lot of economic activity.

Lewis Black is a GENIUS!

The one barely in South Carolina, along I-95.
