March Open Thread

by lizard

It’s tempting, like swatting low hanging fruit, going after Rand Paul’s brand of kook to distract from the content of his filibuster, but the reality is almost no one from team Dem was willing to do the same.

If calling this fascism is still too unpalatable, then let’s find a new term to describe Eric Holder saying “Nah, fuck it, prosecuting bankers could spook the economy…”

What will Bill McKibben do when Keystone goes through? Will he Aaron Swartz himself? No, Bill has a role to play, and as long as he plays it right, no threat of a half-century prison sentence will be necessary.

I know someone who needs to be in jail right now, because he’s a danger to himself and others in this community. I see every day where the gaps are significant, and it’s getting worse.

There is a lot going on right now, too much to actually keep track of.

Consider this an open thread.

    will labor ever get tired of getting punk’d by Obama and Democrats? Bad Romance: Labor, Obama and the Democrats.

    how about environmentalists? Obama’s Department of Fracking and Nukes.

    like I said, fuck the Obama administration.

    I may open a pitchfork factory. Who’d like to go in with me and manufacture the torches?

    I was going to make this a regular post, but it fits in so well with this open thread:

    RIP Alvin Lee

    This song changed my whole outlook on life when I was 15. And now, 42 years later, it still rings true…

      Everywhere is freaks and hairies
      Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
      Tax the rich, feed the poor
      Till there are no rich no more

      Id love to change the world
      But I dont know what to do
      So Ill leave it up to you

      Population keeps on breeding
      Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
      Life is funny, skies are sunny
      Bees make honey, who needs money, monopoly

      Id love to change the world
      But I dont know what to do
      So Ill leave it up to you

      World pollution, theres no solution
      Institution, electrocution
      Just black and white, rich or poor
      Them and us, stop the war

      Id love to change the world
      But I dont know what to do
      So Ill leave it up to you (more)

    And another one, for what it’s worth…

    And don’t miss the picture of John Kerry at about 1:30

    I can imagine listening to this song in a few decades and still absolutely loving it:
