I pick and choose just like you.
I'm just tired of the pretense without the personal expression of view. Blogging, for me, is an opportunity to think and debate issues. It is not for an endless sharing of references nor demands that certain people should get together and discuss things----when we know they never will.

The kind I was raised with.
I visitted The Ham House in Greenville couple years ago with St. Legislator I was raised with in Gaffney during School integration.
He was on Charlie Rose Jan 2008

I hope OxAm and NPR will study up on Dan Williams book before the GOP Primary next year.

The budget crisis in some respect is the fault of Southern Baptist Convention. They have great influence in Upstate S.C. and Demint and Trey Gowdy to large respect are their creation.

As long as they are fed the samo-samo and get to meet their friends and gossip on Sunday, they are generally happy. Big covered dish suppers also help! They usually want their presuppostitions stroked and God help the preacher who speaks of racial issues / immigration / Political and Corporate immorality when it comes to greed.
What is needed is a truly patriotic position, one that would explain to voters, whatever their sympathies, that there is no American nation without an American middle class, and no American middle class without an American government that provides the essential services that allow people to move up in a globalized world. Whatever one thinks of the Tea Party’s Orwellian references to our revolutionary heritage, there’s no danger of a return to an eighteenth century: when Ohio did not even exist, and the midwestern economy depended on the Indian flint arrowheads that today pass beneath the blades of the massive high-tech combines. The real danger is that we will move briskly forward to national non-existence, misunderstanding the plainest lessons of our own past along the way. By the time the costs of right-wing anarchism reach the truly privileged, it will be far too late for everyone else. If we don’t find a way to adapt own national thinking to global reality before then, all we can look forward to is leaving a trace: like fossils, or arrowheads, or the mammoth tusk that hangs on my grandmother’s porch.
