We love her here in California! And just think - she's on track to become the SENIOR Senator from Massachusetts, once Kerry moves over to the State Department! Just seems fitting - and gives her a little extra gravitas!

I LOVE Elizabeth Warren! With her on the team with people like our Barbara Boxer, this Senate could actually accomplish some great things!

Dem apologizes to Elizabeth Warren for GOP attacks:

They’re afraid of you


In a House Oversight subcommittee meeting Tuesday, some Republican committee members used their time to attack Elizabeth Warren, who is advising President Barack Obama on the formation of a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) even accused Warren of lying to Congress the last time she had testified.

A Democrat on the committee, however, used his time to apologize for his across-the-aisle colleagues’ behavior. Rep. Joe Yarmuth (D-KY) congratulated Warren, while backhandedly insulting other committee members, implying that they were afraid of Warren’s power and effectiveness.

“The snarky comments about a Senate race, and the questioning of your veracity when there is documented evidence that you are being totally truthful indicates to me that this hearing is all about impugning you because people are afraid of you and your ability to communicate in very clear terms the threats to our consumers and the threats to our constituents and possibly very, very effective ways to combat them,” Yarmuth said. ” I congratulate you for instilling such fear in the committee, on the majority side, and in some aspects, or segments, of the business community because they understand how effective you are in getting the message out to the American people.”

Watch Yarmuth’s comments below, embedded via YouTube

18. The Arc of the Universe Is Long But It Bends Towards Justice

Last edited Sat Jan 5, 2013, 08:41 AM - Edit history (3)

Quoted by Barack Obama, attributed to Martin Luther King, Jr., who learned it from the Unitarian minister Theodore Parker:



"...Dr. King once said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice. It bends towards justice, but here is the thing: it does not bend on its own. It bends because each of us in our own ways put our hand on that arc and we bend it in the direction of justice...."


~ Barack Obama

...In 1961, Dr. King used these words when he explained his principles of nonviolence. On March 31, 1968, only four days before his assassination, he used these same words in the National Cathedral when he gave what would be his last sermon. He employed this phrase many times, before many audiences...

Dr. King's words echo those of the 19th-century Unitarian minister Theodore Parker. In his 1853 sermon on "Justice and the Conscience," Parker declared:

"I do not pretend to understand the moral universe; the arc is a long one, my eye reaches but little ways; I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; I can divine it by conscience. And from what I see I am sure it bends towards justice."

The arc of the moral universe is long. When Parker first spoke of the arc of the moral universe bending towards justice 155 years ago, he did so to share a dream of a nation that few then held. When Dr. King echoed these words four decades ago, he did so to comfort and encourage those who were dedicated to making that dream a reality. When Senator Obama used these same words, he did so as a call to action to perfect that nation.


There is cruelty in our history, enough to bring tears to our eyes, at the link. Remember, Inauguration Day this year will fall on the observed date for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 21st.

As President Roosevelt said:



There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.


~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Yes, Full Circle it is.

37. Yeah to Senator Warren!

Great link! Congrats to Yarmuth for that great slap down! Perfect. Just perfect!

Remember this one from about 18 months ago?

Chairman McHenry calls Elizabeth Warren a liar!

This time it was Mr Cummings that did the slap down! These idiots just never learn. Not ever.

#t=104s

They fear her because, in around about way,she is a Senator today because of them. Their vicious stonewalling of her appointment to CPA brought this about! They thought they had beaten her into submission when she finally pulled her name from the confirmation.

Think again GOP. She is now meaner and leaner than she ever was. As Senator, she now holds a far more powerful position, than she would ever have held as head of CPA! Heads are going to roll.

They are right to fear her!

Thanks again, Freshwest for this post and the one below.

She's in one of the newer/junior offices. Longer walk to the floor for a vote.


If you are in the city tomorrow (the city being Boston) you can see her and Elena Kagan at Roxbury Community College--free:

For those supporters who cannot make it to Washington, Warren is holding a reception and re-enactment ceremony on Saturday at Roxbury Community College.

The ceremony is open to the public and will be held at the Media Arts Center. Doors open at 1 p.m. with the ceremony at 2 p.m. There, Warren will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. Kagan taught and was the dean of Harvard Law School when Warren was a professor there. During the campaign, Warren named Kagan as her model Supreme Court justice.

20. Nothing wrong with "professor' either.

Shows education and accomplishment and, often, publication.

When did education become a bad word in this country?

The American Dream was an immigrant getting his or her kids an education so that they could live better than their parents.

Nothing former Senator Brown can say can change that, any more than the war whoops of his staffers can take away the dignity of Native Americans.

I visited Massachusetts from San Francisco last September. One of my priorities was to snap some Elizabeth Warren campaign signs.

Even at that time, it still looked a bit shaky.

50. Martha Coakley losing in the 2010 special election to that arrogant lightweight was actually a good

thing. It reminded us that there are no true moderate Republicans left in MA or any other New England or Mid Atlantic States. Brown-R could have voted like the ME US Senators- but he voted like the NH US Senators. It also gave MA voters the opportunity to send Warren to the US Senate.
Coakley-D- had she won the 2010 Special Election would have won in 2012 by a double digit margin and serve in the US Senate for at least 3 terms.
Markey-D and/or Capuano-D would be the leading Democratic candidates for the Kerry Seat.
Warren-D was able to run against Brown-R in 2012 after all of the MA top tier Democratic candidates decided not to run-allowing Warren to win the Democratic nomination and the November General Election against FOX News Channel and FOX 25 favorite MA US Senator.
