"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

Bloggin' Around Again

Archie finds idiots (or "John McKay gets cranky, if the first link doesn't work.)

Avedon Carol is suffering through enjoying another service upgrade. While we wait, we should all read this

Riverbend gives us yet more reasons to dislike war.

Zeyad talks about the fighting from a different perspective.

Katrina gives us a round-up of some of the newer, more interesting anti-Bush-themed organizations.

Jeff is soliciting opinions about creating a vision of the government we'd like to have, and the environment is very central. Read. Respond.

B.J. has an equally important problem under the microscope. " Organization with Ties to Racist Hate Group Airs Ad Attacking Democratic Congressman Martin Frost" All the contact info you need is there. Read. Act.

From the latest Quick Takes

Post-Sept. 11 priorities

News Item: ". . . In this field office in Washington, 32 prosecutors, investigators and a handful of FBI agents are spending millions of dollars to bring anti-obscenity cases to courthouses across the country for the first time in 10 years...."

News Item: ". . . The IRS wanted to add 80 more criminal investigators to keep terrorists from getting the money they need. That would cost about $12 million. But the White House did not include the $12 million in its 2005 budget. . . ."

I'm just saying. What is is with this Conservative obsession with sex?

Pardon me. Your bias is showing.

Lots of people have written about the abrupt escalation of violence in Iraq and debated Bremer's statement that we're totally in control of all but a bit of the county. Fair enough, but Bob Dreyfuss, writing on the same topic, offers us "Sunni rebels" and "Shiite fascists." I wonder which group he favors?

Hey Anne, I'm trying to get together a bunch of bloggers (group, couple?) who'll join me in a meta-discussion about liberal vision. You wanna join in? I've got a couple of interested folks--and they're biggies, woo hoo!

Lemme think....for the right-wingnuts, this would probably be a "bane of blogs" don't you think?

I'm not so much a visionary as a whiner about how someone else needs to do the work of thinking of solutions to problems, but I'd love join the discussion!
