Quote of the Day
Great leaders communicate a vision that captures the imagination and fires the hearts and minds of those around them.

Maynard James Keenan
To stimulate wildly weak and untrained minds is to play with mighty fires.
W. E. B. Du Bois

The corporate right fires up the religious right against gay marriage and abortion and uses their votes to push their deregulation and tax cuts for the rich. It's an old trick. The House of Saud has the same arrangement with the Mullahs in Saudi Arabia.
