I was told last night when I said I was not interested in supporting Obama or Tester or even thinking about electoral politics, "My you are soooo cynical". I said something about hamsters.

Would that many more Americans were cynical - then, maybe they'd stop being Obamabots, Paulbots, Romneybots, Gingrichbots .... Not holding my breath ....

His appearance on Bill Maher was disconcerting to me. "Obama did a very brave thing" in postponing the XL Keystone Pipeline. Has he been recruited to keep the status quo? Are we the only people here and Leonardi over at Counterpunch that know that the pipeline will be built no matter what. And that the environmental movement that Moyers said made the president "do it", hasn't really had that much influence on this president. Hello, remember BP oil disaster? Hello, more nuclear plants.

It is indeed interesting, when we finally are able to take off the rose colored glasses that we were born with, how we start seeing the familiar in an entirely new way. From an article on the NCLB education issue, by Paul Thomas:

"While these facts have been true likely since the founding of the country by the idealized Founding Father’s who spoke for democracy but protected their own privilege, the rising evidence may be forcing Americans to set aside our rose-colored glasses and see that our commitments as a people are the rugged individualism myth and a corrosive faith in authority, hierarchy, and Social Darwinism/capitalism—not democracy and community."

Thomas' core point is that "accountability without autonomy is tyranny."

Moyers is one of them, too. Another hero bites the dust.

The commentary that was in the Fukushima documentary was pathetic.

I heard PBS had lost their independence a bit, but I didn't think it was this bad....

Maybe he just needs a chance to get his head back in the game.

We want to think well of people, after all; perhaps that's what's going on here.

The further this country marches to the right, the further to the left I move. I've moved so far to the left that I'm within a day's march of some of the positions of those on the right. Strange bedfellows, indeed! If Moyers can convince some people to start moving to the left, good for him. But I don't need to listen to him any longer.
