With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

GOOD WORDS FROM ORLANDO


Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Orlando, Florida) makes a brilliant presentation about the true costs of war spending.

It's hard to believe that the Republican bastion in muggy Central Florida has elected such a strong peace advocate but it is delightful to see.

I lived there for 20 years and can only imagine how much things are changing politically. It's the big growth that did it, with all the folks coming there looking for work in the "Magic Kingdom" it was bound the change the local politics. Maybe Orlando becomes a great working class cauldron of discontent - it's possible because of all the low-wage tourism industry workers that are hanging on by a thread.

It's obvious those are the folks that Grayson is speaking to and for.
