Make Way for the Radical Center
Apropos article in this week's NYTimes as we watch our 401K balances plummet as the Republicans deliver bought-and-paid-for promises to corporations and the ultra-rich at the expense of everyone else.

"DID I mention that I’ve signed a pledge — just like those Republican congressmen who have signed written promises to different political enforcers not to raise taxes or permit same-sex marriage?

Sorry, I’ve signed it. Nothing more I can do."
