Why not progressive?
At times I'm frustrated by those that don't follow politics in the United States. I worry they don't vote, I worry they don't get their opinion out there. Of course, I am very progressive and very much in opposition to the right, however, I'm being inspired by a much greater goal than politics. Politics is all cyclical. It's not important in the grand scheme of things. The important part of life is what all the regular people are doing. I'm changing the focus of this blog a bit. Not because I think the Tea Party won the midterms or anything like that but because I want to elevate us above that sort of derogatory nonsense into something that is far more useful. Something to save us and save the world. Small goals, I know. But seriously something to talk about.

A Right Wing Friend
There is a friend I have on Facebook that posts extremist videos promoting fear and hate and racism. I didn't respond on Facebook because I didn't want the fight. I will say, that after watching this video with Christiane Amanpour, one of today's most highly respected journalists, that this video is very educational. It is showing there are extremists and there are moderates. It seemed actually skewed toward the moderate side. My friend posted this to incite racism and fear just as the right wing loves to do!
