So, I read it. And loved it.
Some bits I particularly loved, if anyone cares:
Well stated. A call, I think, for bipartisanship.
Exactly!! It's not about a quick fix that'll make people happy go lucky for the next two months, which is effectively a bandaid on a broken arm. It's about setting the arm and giving it time to heal naturally.
Here, here!! Why the GOP is acting as though banks who's received government assistance shouldn't be held accountable for what they spend that money on is unfathomable
A noble goal. I'm really tired of people who act as though education is a luxury. It shouldn't be.
Money in the Defense budget that gets wasted pisses me off more than anything. This is money that should go towards giving our armed forced the tools and protection they need to do their jobs, and it goes to waste. Makes me sick. There shouldn't BE no-bid contracts when it comes to military, that always seems to be where the big bucks mysteriously disappear.
In case anyone wasn't paying attention, that means your average household is going to see tax CUTS. Only the super rich are going to see changes.
Good for him. Cutting benefits to armed forces isn't the way to keep them well staffed.
That we tortured is bad enough, IMO. That, on top of that, we held people without due process, is offensive to me as an American. We can't cast aside the values that separate us from our enemies.
Heh, a rather pointed remark about the previous administration's attitude toward the rest of the world. Dig it.
And the last few paragraphs made me well up. I'm thoroughly impressed.
