... Taxed

TAPPED is right. Colorado has been having Tabor Pains. Let's hope we can put a stop to that this time. (Also? "Squawk Radio"? Love that description.)

... Assaulted

Counterrecruiting can be dangerous to your health. I find the idea that you'll be physically attacked for a silent, nonviolent protest to be very worrying.

On the one hand, it's good to find political passion in today's younger generation.

On the other, there's a disregard for civil rights, not to mention laws against assaulting people, coming from the Right that is disturbing. But then, I guess they're just following the leader, aren't they?

... Poor

There are links to reports from the Center for American Progress's Ending Concentrated Poverty program panels! I guess I know what I'll be doing tonight. Reading.

... Bush

You think Bush really will have the nerve to veto the defense bill just because it has an anti-torture amendment? It probably doesn't surprise you to hear that I totally hope he does. Because he does think torture is okay, so he needs to stand up and say so. Let all those delusional people get a better look at just what they voted for.

Over at IHT, Zbigniew Brzezinski is discussing George W. Bush's suicidal statecraft.

... Democrat

You know, some of us think that if the Democratic Party moves any more toward the "center", we'll fall off the right-hand side of the page.

Do we need to make the Democratic Party sign a "real" contract? Are you tired, yet, of hearing me repeat that this country's political parties are not (or should not be) entities separate from the voters and that the government shouldn't be either?

But then again, while Bush continues to display his idiocy, maybe I don't want to be associated with this government.

And, to top off with, read David Broder's For Democrats, a Path Back to Power. That's about the center, too, but there's still thought-worthy material there.
