The 112th session of Congress gets underway today with Republicans sauntering into town with itchy fingers floating above their holsters like Cowboys seeking vengeance in an old western.

Ah, the spirit of America.

The Democrats don’t seem eager for a showdown, or, as Rep. Anthony Weiner put it, the Democrats are entering the new session “in the fetal position.”

Also, “The more outrageous the Republicans become, the weaker the left becomes,” Ralph Nader says “The more outrageous they become, the more the left has to accept the slightly less outrageous corporate Democrats.”

And- More Dead Fish and Birds. WTF?!?!!

Intentional metaphor, or production error? While I appreciate your views being left of center... the audio on your podcasts is much better placed in a centerist position. ;) Keep spreading the good word! Props from Canada.

Dennis- Is it money? Is the the problem? I mean, the Tea Party Explosion of activity, if the news sources I followed are correct, can be traced to billionair donars, who are using the Tea Party as finger puppets to do thier bidding. All their websites, meetings, massive bus tours to DC, seem to be a result of a shadowy Daddy Warbucks footing the bill. Is that what we Lefty Lib (like me) lack? Do I need to go out a rob a few banks, form a posse of Merry Men to hide out in the forest and rob from the Sherrif's tax collectors before we can have the muscle to take on the corporate lobbyists and Tea Party types?

The fish not having eyes sounds creepy, but really isn't. As an amature ichthyologist, and the accidental murderer of many fish, I can tell you that eyes and fins are first to go.

First, they are softer than the rest of the fish, so they are readily eaten. Second, they are not well protected, and succumb quickly to fungus and mold.

Third, when a fish dies, it stops fending off the infusion of bodily tissues with water via osmosis, and the softer tissues tend to swell up and get all ... stringy.

Ralph Nader is finally speaking up?
It feels like he's been silent for two years...

Single payer is not the solution.
Socialism, confined to the health care industry and a few other narrow areas, is the appropriate solution.

I was just discussing how voting republican or democrat will change nothing. There is no difference between the two, except the lies they spew. It is so fucking obvious that they are all corporate puppets. The public's blind eye and their unwillingness to confront the wrong doings of anyone in government is so frustrating. I feel powerless when everyone I know just shrugs off everything. I just want to choke them sometimes.

And yes, I voted for Nadar in 2000, 2004, and 2008.
