A little late, but Kudzu Vine last Sunday was terrific.  David Nir, formerly of Swing State Project, and now part of the Daily Kos team, was our guest.  Go on, take a listen!

It’s July 4th Weekend. To me, that means it’s time for the Capitol Steps Independence Day Special!

Today is July 1st.  Here’s a rundown of laws that go into effect today in Georgia.

It’s all yours!

    And just to satisfy the urge to vilify everything & everyone, let’s also admit that BHO is dead wrong in his recent conceptions of our economic problems, which does not bode well for any of us:

    If we stumble out of this self created & imagined desert w/o causing another collapse, we might count ourselves lucky. But like Eric Cantor, I’d be tempted to bet against the likelihood of it happening too. JMP

    couple things..

    Looks like the Cain campaign is headed towards the skids… he’s lost several key staff this week in Iowa. Looks like couple came outta the Thompson staff pile, so yeah I guess they can spot a non serious candidate at twenty paces by now.

    Anti HB87 rally/march today looks like it was packed, 20K participants are estimates.

    GA only funded 10K for Civil War’s 150th anniversary. Virginia funded 10 million. Is anyone actually upset by this?

    “We’ve got little time for self indulgent whining”

    Never stopped you before.

    You’re either part of the solution or part of the problem. We’ve got little time for self indulgent whining. Don’t like BHO? You don’t have to vote for him. So what else have you got? Are you going to be doing anything to help fix the myriad problems we’ve got? What are you doing now to try and help your community, state & nation? Pissing & moaning is just Step 1. Now what?

    Just some good thoughts here for moving forward. JMP
