I decided some months ago to only put up my own writing--with some, few exceptions.
This is one of those.
If you don't read or watch the Alternet site, you should. They have great, important material out there--not just the current, temporary and hilarious antics and fights within the Republican Party and Rush "Porkulus" Limbaugh vs. Michael Steele vs. the Republican Party. (though those are some GREAT laughs).
The one that turned my head is this one:
We're in the Midst of an Epic Battle over the Direction of this Nation
By John Cavanagh, Foreign Policy in Focus. Posted March 5, 2009.
It really tells, very well, just where we are, what we're doing and where we might be going right now, as a nation and we could all use that information.
You can find it here:
Here's another very good one from the same site and it speaks for itself:
What It's Going to Take to Stave Off Another Great Depression
By Dean Baker, The Guardian. Posted March 5, 2009.
Finally, here's a really good column also from Alternet.org that's both sobering and somewhat lighthearted, which is rare:
1/3 Of America Is Crazy: They Think Their Jobs Are Safe
By Jill Andresky Fraser, Tomdispatch.com. Posted March 5, 2009.
I put these up because I think they are all 3 important reads and because I think the site may be overlooked by the "man on the street". I think they're too important to miss or overlook.
Have a great day, everyone (in spite of our outlook).
