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.

America is losing a great Speaker
Nancy Pelosi is viewed as one of the most divisive people in American politics. As is Sarah Palin. One is brilliant. The other not so much. Ms. Pelosi is an accomplished woman. She has broken the marble ceiling in the federal government, she has passed historic and profound legislation and frankly, it bit her in the ass. She will most likely move on in the House as Minority Leader because 80% of her district kept her in office. She doesn't quit. Not like the divisive Sarah Palin. Take a look at this from NPR: NPR on Madame Speaker
