Intelligence failure

PDB: Bin Laden determined to strike in the US
OK. You've covered your ass.

Garrison Keilor, William Blake

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among those dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my Bow of burning gold,
Bring me my Arrows of desire,
Bring me my Spear; O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!

I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have build Jerusalem
In England's green & pleasant Land.

The Levellers at the Putney Debates: 1647

Thus Thomas Rainsborough argued:
For really I think that the poorest he that is in England hath a life to live, as the greatest he; and therefore truly, Sr, I think it clear, that every Man that is to live under a Government ought first by his own Consent to put himself under that Government; and I do think that the poorest man in England is not at all bound in a strict sense to that Government that he hath not had a voice to put Himself under.

The lesson of slavery

What is the lesson of slavery?
That southerners were blinded by self interest?
Or that people can be blinded by self-interest?
People who are making money
will defend the methods
no matter how vile.

Has anyone forgotten

That on this day, ten years ago, nineteen young male muslims, mostly from Saudi Arabia, and educated in the USA, organized out of Germany, crashed four jetliners into targets in the USA,

Jobless recovery

If you need a job,
a jobless recovery is not a recovery;
it is the same ol' same old.

If you have a job,
it is still not a recovery,
just you might not be let go.

A jobless recovery is a recovery for business;
for the owners of the means of production.

If you have two coats,
give one to him who has none

I hear many churches are pressing the government
to enact this moral legislation.
Similar law in the works for houses.

A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats

If you own a boat, you are probably ok.
