Big Hug/Love of "Liberal"/Sunbeams/Forgiveness/


(P1) Political

<- The Real John McCain

Then, in case you've accepted the propaganda that "Liberal" is a curse word, check out the following cool piece...

Day In the Life of Joe Middle Class Republican

TvNewsLIES Reader contribution.
By John Gray Cincinnati, Ohio -

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

(P2) Philosophical

A few "sunbeams" from The Sun magazine

I am not so arrogant as to presume that only my intellectual superiors can teach me. If such were the case then the teacher would learn nothng from her disciples, the parents nothing from their children, and I nothing from the animals, from whom I have learned so much.

We are here and now. Further than that, all knowledge is moonshine.

(P3) Poetical

Forgiveness

The one who forgives restores,
even though it seems a small segment,
the wholeness of being.

Everyone's history
is, without doubt, part of the world's history,
is, in fact, the world's history.

In other words,
whatever a man or a woman does,
even in secret, touches,
no, even more, shapes all humanity.

- Jaime Sabines
(translated by Rebeca del Rio)

And, do yourself a favor and get down to the Marin Poetry Festival.

Hey Ed,

Being the Union Steward of Downtown Santa Rosa, I have to say that I appreciate the plugs for the progress the Union has made in balancing the playing field... and protecting worker's rights to a fair shake and decent livelihood.

It helps to promote the ideals in action with a positive light as presented in your recent post!

Stay cool man...
