But most of those 91 accomplishments didn’t require approval by Congress. The Republicans have decided, as a bloc, to vote against almost anything we propose—even if they proposed it first. If it comes from the Democrats, they vote no, end of story. How much more progress would we have made without their tantrumy-two-year-old behavior?

A Chance to Confront Racism

July 21st, 2010 · 5 Comments · Diversity, language, People Helping People, Shel's Personal Life, Social and Economic Justice, Transparency vs. Secrecy

Why I Read People I Disagree With

April 30th, 2010 · 6 Comments · Diversity, General Commentary, language, Shel's Personal Life, Web 2.0/Social Media
