Cindy Sheehan Gives Me Hope

Enduring fire ants and attacks from pro-Bush media and pundits who are fighting as though they have been cornered, Cindy Sheehan presses on for a second week at Bush’s Crawford ranch. She is one of the few who is brave enough to tell the truth and demand the truth from an administration that has repeatedly lied to us about The Bush War. She has stepped in where the media and Congress have failed. She is exposing the lies and not accepting the administrations party line of Bush’s War being a “noble cause.”

Thank you Cindy for prodding us out of our complacency, for showing us that while the media and corporate America do control a lot of what goes on in our government, the voice of the people can rise above the talking heads. We must band together and refuse to accept their rhetoric.

Cindy has given me hope that perhaps democracy isn’t dead in America:

We are here at the Crawford Peace House now. I came here so angry and I have been so encouraged and overwhelmed by the support from all over. I was thinking that there is no reason for us progressive liberals to be angry anymore. We have the power. One mom has shown that ordinary citizens can make a difference. We the people have to hold George Bush accountable. We have to make sure he answers to us. If he doesn’t have to answer to Congress, or the media, we will force him to answer to us.

Slack and Taut: Defining a System’s Resilience

A resilient future (or a resilient present, for that matter) needs to be slack, not taut. What do we mean? Core to the concept of a Lean Economy is understanding the need to move toward a “slack” market rather than one that is “taut.” When British economist David Fleming died unexpectedly in 2010, he left […] Read More
