A Thought or Two for John Boehner: I was born in Youngstown and appreciate the loss of industry. People got by or left. What I don’t understand is promoting bull shit ideology, with no social value, as an argument against rational, well thought out policy changes that are needed. You are wasting my time with this "I get my direction from the lobbies" approach. It’s insulting & lazy. You can’t think for yourself, and are doing the corporate gangsters bidding. That makes you useless. A representative unable to think for himself, let alone the people you represent. You are a failure by any measure and should muster any remaining spine, get up and leave.

The critical piece of Immigration Reform is how those already here are dealt with fairly. Many working class families have mixed status and deserve a solution that leaves them intact, able to continue contributing to our communities and commerce. We need them. Their culture and history are an integral part of our historic fabric. Their art, community contributions and family ethic enrich us and diversify our lives. What reason is there to offend these incredibly gratious people?

@JackieParkey The bigots I’ve come across are those who use hatred for power and those who follow them. The followers have weak self images and are looking for acceptance, the others are evil manipulators looking for control.

This could be Haiti or the shadows of LA.

Auguries of Innocence:

Is this a holy thing to see
In a rich and fruitful land,
Babes reduced to misery,
Fed with cold and usurous hand?

– William Blake

The common light the lives in our soul, make these lyics timelessly apropo. "The measure of her flying feet Made Ireland’s heart begin to beat; And Time bade all his candles flare To light a measure here and there; And may the thoughts of Ireland brood Upon a measured quietude." – Yeats http (full details)

The beginning of this Democratic Campaign is something I will never forget. It is happening now. The President, in campaign mode, is accounting 2 the people, in person, on the stump.

Well, the AZ Immigration law is moving from virtual evaluation in the media polls to a more tangible negotiation in the streets.

Well, the AZ Immigration law is moving from virtual evaluation in the media polls to a more tangible negotiation in the streets. The Hispanic base is engaged and building a popular voice that’s beginning to look like a We Are The World commercial. I hope the Cowboy Sheriff Joe doesn’t do something to trigger a violent crowd reaction. For all his strutting and political bluster, he is an incredibly stupid man. He is putting himself between Hispanic families threatened to be split apart by deportation and a politically motivated legal blunder.

It can be easy to confuse statistical correlation & cause/effect. What causes low levels of achievement in the class room? Where are the correctable opportunities?
