21. Focus: 2014

While I am disappointed there weren't the votes to knock back more of the filibuster rules I also know that change inside the beltway goes at glacial speed and any changes here are better than none. Harry couldn't "be LBJ"...give an evil glance and votes would appear. Seems in times like this a bit of a history and civics lesson around here is in order (not that those with a beef and agenda will ever pay any heed).

Many Democrats are justifiably worried about 2014...there are more Democrats up for re-election than rushpublicans and many fail to realize that without the stupidity of several "strong" rushpublican candidates we could be dealing with Turtleman setting the agenda. Fortunately that's not the case, but that's not the case in two years and I think that has a lot to do with what happened today. Eliminate the filibuster and if and/or when the Democrats become the minority our lives will be truly hell.

Want to make bigger changes? Then work to help get more liberal and progressive Democrats elected in 2014...our numbers are growing but more are needed to bring the changes so many hear are demanding...
