An attempt at a left leaning perspective on the cultural and political goings-on in San Angelo, Texas, and hey, maybe even the nation.

There's a little something in here for everyone
Liberal Oasis has some great excerpts of a speech John Kerry gave to the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition. There's really alot of stuff in there to get excited about.

On Health Care as a Right

We're the only industrial nation in the world that doesn't yet understand health care is not a privilege for the wealthy or the elected or the connected.

It is a right for all Americans and we're going to make it available to all Americans.

And George Bush, he's had four years as president to offer leadership.

He doesn't even talk about it. He doesn't even have a fake plan, ladies and gentlemen, which is normally where they are. He has no plan.

And so we've got 44 million Americans who have no care and we have costs going up for everybody in the country…

…I'm going to make certain we put in place the principle that that health care that senators and congressmen give themselves and you pay for -- it ought to be available to every American.

My buddy Dave, a native Angeloan transplanted to the West Coast, has started a new blog. I'd probably be safe in describeing his politics as a bit right of center with a global perspective. Though, he promises to offer discourse on all things that "affect our world and progression as a society." He's really friggin smart and should have some good stuff. Plus he's very industrious and has already enabled comments, thereby starting a step ahead of me.

Spies Like Us

Here's an interesting profile of Goodfellow.

Goodfellow is apparently one of the military's main exporters of spooks, offering Signals Intelligence training, the "bread and butter" of the NSA.

Now before everyone puts on their tin foil hats, bear in mind that atleast we're not in Fort Benning, GA

Maybe this will help the base survive the 2005 closures.

GOoPers

Kevin Drumsums up the Texas GOP platform in all its wingnuttery. It's some pretty scary stuff. I'd also like to remind yall that every Republican running for state office has to sign the official platform. So even if you think Robert Duncan is ok, (I do), know that he has officially endorsed this steaming pile of crap - Hopefully with atleast SOME reticence.

Texas Tuesdays continues this week with a showcase on Chet Edwards. San Angelo voters should be particularly interested in this race. Edwards was one of DeLay's targets during the redistricting debacle. A conservative democrat, Edwards is the ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations Subcommitte.

Sunday's Standard Times cited two studies, (one conducted by the DoD and one by ASU), showing how vital Goodfellow is to our local economy. With a new round of base closures set for 2005 and tens of millions of dollars in new construction currently under way at the base, this is one Democrat that ALL San Angeloans should get behind.

Drop him some change aqui. And don't forget to add $0.36 so they know it came from the blogosphere.

Okay, so posting has been light over the last few weeks. I'll work to remedy that over the next several days.

First order of business is Texas Tuesdays.

The May 25 candidate is Max Sandlin. He's got a great site with a great message. Go check it out. And if you feel so inclined, give him a hand. Be sure to add $0.36


Also make sure to go to the official Texas Tuesdays website.
