Anti-War Movement Frustrated

No s_ _ t. Of course the anti-war movement is stymied and frustrated. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

As my new idol Chris Floyd says, it is time to face facts. Democracy is dead and the Democratic party helped kill it. Bush is in better shape now than he was last year. Reid and Pelosi wake up every day and decide how they are going to assume the position. It doesn't matter that Rove, Gonzales and Libby are gone. They are always replaced and Bush and Cheney remain in place. Yes, impeachment remains off the table.

I feel badly for Michael Lerner and others. They think the Democrats will change, but it is time they woke up and smelled the coffee. In tomorrow's Black Agenda Report, I will begin writing about the formation of a new movement. A mass movement and the civil disobedience that must go with it are our last hope.

Give it up Lerner. They are just not into you.
