Love me I’m a Liberal – Phil Ochs

“In every American community you have varying degrees of shadiness.
One of the shadiest of these is the Liberals.
Ten degrees to the left of center in good times,
Ten degrees to the right of center if it affects them personally.”

-Phil Ochs, 1967

  1. The End of New Deal Liberalism
    By William Greider

    ‘Once again, Republicans are mounting an assault on liberalism’s crown jewel, Social Security, only this time they might succeed, because the Democratic president is collaborating with them. The deficit hysteria aimed at Social Security is fraudulent (as Obama’s own experts acknowledge), but the president has already gravely weakened the program’s solvency with his payroll-tax holiday, which undercuts financing for future benefits. Obama promises the gimmick won’t be repeated, but if employment is still weak a year from now, he may well cave. The GOP will accuse him of damaging the economy by approving a “tax increase” on all workers. Senate Democrats are preparing their own proposal to cut Social Security as a counter to the GOP’s extreme version. In the end, they can split the difference and celebrate another great compromise.’

    Funny thing though, this commentary was actually published in The Nation, the leading magazine of to the death tied liberal Democrats! They read, they ‘see’, they still do the same thing Democrats!
