I keep trying to rest like a good girl but I keep getting great info from people wiser than I and I am compelled to share it with y'all. In these troubled times for us ordinary mortals, being informed is really our only defense against the crooks and liars out there.
* Y'all know that I admire and respect economist Robert Reich and he makes some excellent points on Obama's failure to stand up to the thugs in Congress here

* Don't be too shocked, but I am actually applauding John McCain today!!! Here's a one minute video that nearly left me speechless:
Text: "To hold out and say we won't agree to raising the debt limit to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, it's unfair, it's bizarro."
I hope someone listens!
