Finally Friday

by: JanF

Fri Jan 04, 2013 at 08:05:45 AM EST





The week started with Our Nation perilously close to the Fiscal Cliff.

"Jump, Jump!", said some.




"Fix, Fix!", said others. Frantic folks (and furry friends!) looked on fearfully.

JanF :: Finally Friday
We had seen this before.




Calls for sanity rang out.




The clock was ticking.

The countdown started on New Years Eve. SOMETHING big was going to happen. And it did!!

But unfortunately that was not exactly what we were waiting for.

Quick ... get my smelling salts. Senators voted for something!!




On to the House. Oh, this does NOT look good.




But then ... a New Years Day miracle. The House of Representatives voted to pass a bill that the Senate had passed and the President signed it. That sounded like "a law".




~

And now, it is Finally Friday. Phew!
(Hey, it's an F sound! Darned Purists ...)

I want to thank "trite images taken from the Internet" for making this possible.

p.s. Don't forget to hover!

If there is any question about how crazee the GOP House is ... (2.00 / 21)
Two - Reps. Paul Broun (R-GA) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) - voted for former Rep. Allen West (R-FL).

Paul Broun is the guy who believes that evolution comes from the "pits of hell".

And Louie Gohmert is ... Louie Gohmert.

It's been a tough few years financially to survive as a freelance writer (especially with British TV production shrinking by over 50 percent) and though I'm loving the journalism and return to book writing, the money is way down.

But mercifully today I've discovered I've just avoided my own personal fiscal cliff, and can survive another six months to finish my second book (On Scientology). I'm writing the opening chapter today, and hopefully the pitch for the book (it will be crowd funded by Unbound like my Murdoch book) will be up in a week or so.

Phew! is all I can say. Still not out of the woods. But thinks already look better.

The Moose is a collective. You're now all officially Mooq, the plural I learned September 2011 when (during the DKos boycott) there was an influx of wonderful bloggers seeking a safe space to play and pontificate

So you need no permission from anyone. Have at it. Have fun. This is now your space as much as any old timers

A lot of us have our Moose accounts from September 2011. (2.00 / 21)
We did not want to lose touch with our boycotting friends.

When we first loaded up our wagons a couple of days ago to head this way, lots of folks said they already had an account.

A few of us will probably stay here longer this time. That had a specific beginning and end. Unfortunately there is no observable expiration date on the latest brouhaha. We can't afford to wait 18 months before advocating voting for Democrats becomes okay again.

we turn the horses out to pasture and the chickens get used to their new roosts and we put up the laundry lines and build the woodpiles, and so on . . . well, there's no point in packing it all up again to go back to an unpleasant location.

Looking forward to reading Peter's on Scientology.

OK. So I'll lay my cards on the table (2.00 / 17)
From my brief perusals of Kos since the elections, there seems to have been a concerted policy, driven by the proprietor and supported by prominent front pagers, to drive the site to an oppositionalist stance after the support prior to the election.

It makes great sense in terms of site dynamics, and the particular politics of those in charge. I have no problem with that. But it does put a question mark under the site's remit to elect more and better democrats. The 'better' bit is being lost here, as so many seem to portray democrats as 'other', as an enemy or at best idiocy which needs to be schooled in real politik.

This does not reflect the views of most liberal Americans, and therefore gives too great a credence to the skewed demographics of a left wing site. Understandably, given its prominence, Kos attracts all kind of commentators from various regions of left of centre, many of whom consider democrats to be little better than republican apologists. This is evident in many comments.

That kind of ideological purism leads to a problem we once had in the British Labour Party: far left entryism. The Labour Party's tolerance for a broad church was there not to be celebrated, but exploited, with all dissent from the entryist line eventually expunged.

Because this has never really happened in US politics (except for a brief moment in 1968 which is constantly mythologised) the argument is stale on both sides.  I consider myself on the left, like Denise, but also a firm believer in coalitions and compromises as the heart of proper democratic politics. Too many, on DKos, see that as the ultimate betrayal.

Until the party really undergoes the 'militant' moment we had in the Labour Party in the early 80s, the reverse understanding: the dangers of division, the importance of loyalty and solidarity in the face of an opposition (something republicans understand all too well) then the site will split off into various fractions and sub factions concentrated on a pet particular interest, complete with its own ideological fitness tests.

I personally cannot bear the tone of most Priceman diaries: "don't tell me you really care as much as I do because I can prove I'm more right on than you." It's echoed by sanctimonious others who are always indicting others for 'not caring' about the poor, or those on social security, or bystanders killed by drones. The truth is, all their 'caring' is weaponised, and used as a baton to beat others with.

I don't want to be pepper-sprayed by sanctimonious smugness. That's not a liberal value in my books.

So, as you can see, from my leftist point of view, those on Kos who claim to be hyper liberals and yet use illiberal and bullying means to achieve their ends are not liberals at all: but right wing ideologues in convenient disguise.

At least that's the way I see it, and hence why all shades of opinion, from far left to Obamican, are welcomed here, if they debate in a respectful way and with good faith.

[ Parent ]
Wow (2.00 / 16)
Thanks for the lengthy summary; I was wondering why the sudden -- and most welcome! -- influx of folks.  It all sounds so drearily familiar, so very much the Kosworld that I fled a long time ago, having had a bellyful of precisely what you describe.

It's a pity a site that could be so helpful to the "more and better" cause is choosing to go into darkness, but I daresay Markos expects he'll reap more and better $$$$$$ that way.

If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done subjunctively.


[ Parent ]
It is drearily familiar.... (2.00 / 15)
...especially the second time round. This is just like 2009, with knobs on. And it immediately opens the site to charges of opportunism.

Only two months ago, loyalty, solidarity, electoral pragmatism won the day. Now those are shunned shibboleths. So where's the integrity? Were they lying two months ago? Or are they lying now?

Can you ask your developer to add "Double Fierce"? (2.00 / 13)
I blogged for some time at BPI Campus which also had a pragmatic bent so your take is familiar and it feels good to hear it again. I have not been happy at L'Orange but stayed because I live in Wisconsin and it was a great place for Wisconsin up-to-the-second news. And because we had a big important national election coming up.

To me politics is the means to the end goal of improving people's lives. In the two-party system we have, I am a staunch Democrat because promoting the Democratic party is the only way to get there.

Scientology... (2.00 / 17)
Although I hesitate to admit it, I was led astray into Scientology for a couple years in a previous lifetime while enduring an incredibly sucky marriage. Actually went to Clearwater for a month, and attained the status of instructor before finally "blowing." Happy to provide anecdotes if you wish, Peter...

And to everyone else, Happy 2013! May this be the year we see some real changes!

I love my country, but I think we should start seeing other people.

Yes I'd love to talk to you. My father was a member for many years, then fell out with them. We were followed by the Sea Org. He then rejoined and promptly went bankrupt. We were homeless.

I don't criticise scientology as a religion: it's no more far fetched than most. But on it's financial and therapeutic practices (and my dad had need of good psychiatry) I hold them accountable. That's the essence of my book.

So please. I'd love to learn more. My email address is pdjukes at gmail dot com. But I will surely chase you up (in a non stalking way) in the near future.

[ Parent ]
Yep, we're antiexclusive. (2.00 / 3)
The Moose is lefthanded, that's a given. But more than simply promoting whatever Democrat/liberal idea/politician, the goal is for folks who are at least not repulsed by liberalism to talk about public issues in a civilized fashion.

I'll admit to being an Obama fan to the core. He's more liberal than I am by a long shot, but we share very fundamental beliefs about discourse and inclusion. FAUX News may not agree with me (good), but Obama has done a great deal to reach across the barbed wire the current brand of GOP has strung across their artificial DMZ. That is why he is popular with most Americans, including many Republicans who don't live inside the Tea Party encampment (and even some who do live there at least respect him).

The beauty of America is in part that we metronome our leadership back and forth, suffering the downsides and benefiting from the upsides of two differing general sets of opinions. Inasmuch as we, the people, can engage each other on topics we may not always agree on we become able to encourage the right kind of leadership, whichever party it comes from.

Besides, purple goes with everything... ;~)

Good morning, Dee!! (2.00 / 5)
I hope you read Nurse Kelley's apology diary. I'm sorry if that was your lampshade that got damaged. ;)

I am ready to write again. Purple suits me.

Welcome to the Moose, Annette! (2.00 / 2)
This is a playful zone, so you are more than welcome here. Make yourself comfortable, kick your shoes off, take pictures of them and make a calendar if you like.

One of my oldest friends is an ex-pat Canadian conservative in Chicago who has a serious Palin crush. Met her once (said she was very pleasant, which I don't doubt however much I dislike her). I'm going to FB him that link and I bet you a cookie he buys one. ;~)

-cheers!
