"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Remember When Van Jones Accused Bill Clinton of "Wagging the Dog?"

OK. I've changed my mind.

Yesterday I said I wasn't going to weigh in on the Van Jones situation.

Today I found THIS and thought it worth noting here.

``This is using dead Third World bodies to cover up his own unzipped pants,'' declared Van Jones, director of Bay Area PoliceWatch, an organization that until now has focused on alleged misconduct by law enforcement officers. Jones spoke at a demonstration at Powell and Market streets in San Francisco that drew 400 people, according to police estimates.

The theme that Clinton took military action to distract public attention from the Monica Lewinsky affair was highlighted in a protester's sign in Palo Alto that read, ``Don't let a wartime incursion be Clinton's diversion.''


(Of course) There was scant mention in any of the demonstrations about the events that precipitated Clinton's action: the terrorist bombs that exploded at the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania on August 7 that killed 251 Africans and 12 Americans.

I'm still not going to take a stand on the Van Jones "removal." I don't see any reason to. His mere presence among Obama's Czars speaks for itself.

I will say this much, though. Take it for what it is worth... If any PUMA is standing against Jones, and behind the Obama administration on this "dismissal"... I will understand.

(Oh and, I might add, this group of "Czars" in the White House??? Not anything I recognize as coming from *my* party of 30 years.)



  1. Thanks. I was just about to feel sorry for that asshole. :)

  2. Hi Annie. Nice to see you here.

    Yes, Van Jones wasn't only a "truther" where Bush was concerned.

    Before GWB,he was a conspiracy theorist that also sided with the RW and accused then leaders of the Dem party.

    In other words.... a nutcase.

    So when are people going to get the message ,Obama is another G.Bush,just not able to stand up for what he campaigned on,healthcare-singlepayer,fisa,rendition,ending wars ,jobs jobs jobs, creditcard reform,financial reform and on and on. Instead we get people like Daschle,Jones but the thing is even though they can't get their postion somehow they go in the back door and still get in on the planning of our government issues.
