"The great art of life is sensation...
To feel that we exist, even in pain."
-- Lord George Gordon Byron, English Romantic poet & satirist (1788-1824)
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."And rights are not ever the kinds of things that should be put to a vote. For that is when residual inequality and feelings of superiority conspire against democracy at its most sacred site... The ballot box.
-- Thomas Jefferson & the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Philadelphia Pennsylvania (July 4, 1776)
"The arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice."
-- Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr., Montgomery Alabama (1965)
Of course, states have no power to regulate the federal government, but that fact is lost on Mr. Steele & Missouri's Republicans, too.
Washington (CNN) - National Republicans are touting a primary result in Missouri where voters overwhelmingly rejected a key controversial part of the new health care law. But Democrats downplay the significance of the vote, the first in which the new health care law was on a ballot.
More than 70 percent of Missouri primary voters Tuesday cast ballots in favor of Proposition C. The measure would allow state residents to opt out of mandatory health insurance, a key part of the new health care reform law, which was pushed by President Obama and Congressional Democrats. The proposition prohibits the federal government from requiring people to have health insurance or penalizing them for not having insurance.

"I had a front seat... And at 18 years old, I got to walk in the clubhouse and see the greatest player on the planet for a long time. He was 24, I was 18, and boy, I'll tell you, that was some type of special treat."My point of view at the Kingdome was along the left field foul line... But the feeling was exactly the same. Ken Griffey Jr. had speed, strength, grace and a playful attitude. A superstar who made it all look easy on the field... A natural.
After Ruth founded the club on his way to No. 714, Willie Mays joined in 1969 and wound up finishing with 660. Hank Aaron followed in 1971, en route to 755.3 of the 4 600 Club entrants since the turn of the century got there on steroid stats... Which we can toss like a used piece of gum...
For a long while, it was quiet. Then the door swung open and the horde came in. Barry Bonds in 2002. Sammy Sosa in '07. Ken Griffey Jr. in '08. And now, A-Rod.
Four guys in eight years. Not a normal pace.

"We all do better when we all do better."The reason why W's 2001 tax cuts will expire at the beginning of the year comes directly from the way they became law... The same Senate rules that allowed them to be enacted with a filibuster-proof simple majority, also prohibit anything that increases the deficit for longer than 10 years.
-- the late U.S. Senator Paul Wellstone, D-MN (1999)
"Every class struggle is a political struggle."
-- Karl Marx, "The Communist Manifesto" (1848)
