    Thank you so much, I just appreciate it being read and knowing it makes sense ;)

    Amen to that, but it’s not an easy lesson. We can gently help people on that path, but it takes time.

    Thank you, you so get it. It is something I am coming to learn and embrace and it is a journey because we are conditioned to do otherwise. This is not who we are or how we are made and to wonder why so many of us feel wrong in our skin, restless, need to [...]

    The past few weeks have been expansive for me personally and painful.  I have found myself grieving for many things, not just personally but for our society in general and how we have become so empty, callous and disconnected from one another. The path I find myself on is truly a gift and I know [...]

    and @dark knight. I know I probably don’t pass your litmus test. I live in Orange County, CA. Talked my husband into running as a Dem in 2008 to just get a “D” on the ballot because you get tired of Republicans running unopposed. He lost, it was expected with the ridiculous registration numbers, but [...]

    Yes, because AT&T is just so much better than comcast. Seriously? I am not an idiot. I am talking about Democratic VOTERS not elected Democrats and there are progressive electeds. Not many of them, but they exist. Most of the Democrats in OFFICE are corporatists, this has more to do with our fucking election finance [...]

    @missling I will check them out, I’ve heard of Ratigan and have been meaning to watch. I appreciate suggestions, it’s constructive at least.

    Of course I am. Because I obviously must believe every single thing I read. I’d like to think I have a varied reading list, such as Alternet and the blogs I read, such as here and then the various MSM newspapers for different things. I am open to different sources (British news sources are others [...]

    All over the place, I watch Countdown, Maddows, read various blogs, online versions of news papers from New York Times, the Washington Post. I follow twitter feeds, etc. I read here as well. David Dayen is one of my favorite bloggers when it comes to the foreclosure crisis and what is really going on. Calitics [...]

    I disagree, I a Democrat and a progressive, you can be both. They are not mutually exclusive. I belong the the progressive caucus in the Democratic party in California. I stand by my claim that Maddow is far more progressive than moderate. I could be wrong, it is merely an opinion. Time to put it [...]

    There is a huge difference between boycotting comcast and boycotting MSNBC.

    The mandate was a huge mistake without a public option. The administration was the shill for the insurance industry. I disagree that Maddow is. We have very few media people actually holding Republicans accountable for their fucked up governing tactics. We also have very few who are pointing out the minor things that this administration [...]

    Part of me doesn’t even believe it’s worth responding to your comment. But I have to because it’s insulting. There are petitions, facebook sites, etc. to boycott MSNBC because of Olbermann’s departure. This is just a response to that. As for calling Maddow a “shill” it’s just ridiculous. There was a point where a lot [...]

    I’ve seen petitions about boycotting MSNBC because of their move on Countdown and the loss of Keith Olbermann.  I think that’s a bad idea.  I think we would be abandoning another progressive voice in order to prove a point and I refuse to do this. Rachel Maddow is not Keith, she will never be Keith [...]

    keith was the only one with real balls, nobody else comes close

    Sorry, this is what I read and I don’t know how I missed anything. But I get it, I know how passionately people feel about Keith. I just feel as strongly about Rachel Maddow.

    I disagree with the claim she’s a Democratic shill. She has challenged things the President has done, just as much as KO has done. Have you watched her? She just has a different style. No special comment, not as dramatic, but she takes on issues and is not afraid to ask tough questions. Her Rand Paul interview was brilliant.

    There is not going to be another KO, he is his own person. But I think people underestimate Rachel Maddow. And I think people also are panicking far too early. If Keith wants a show doing what he does, he will get one, easily. HBO, another cable channel, it will happen.

    I beg to differ, I think Rachel Maddow is brilliant, she is not KO, she does her own thing and very well. She is going against the grain. She is a woman, a smart woman who actually scares the crap out of a lot of Republicans. I wrote a whole POST about it before she got her show. She is a force to be reckoned with.

    I think we underestimate what she can do.

    He didn’t seem devastated though, it seems we are taking this much harder then he is. And it pains me to think that we are overlooking the fact that we have others now who also speak truth to power, such as Rachel Maddow on the same Network. I’m a very big fan of Keith, not [...]
