An Excerpt From Walter Mondale's "The Good Fight", published by Scribner in 2010

An Excerpt From Walter Mondale's "The Good Fight", published by Scribner in 2010

I wanted to put an excerpt from a book (I do not have ANY copyright).  It was written by former Minnesota Senator and Presidential Nominee Walter Mondale (With David Hage).  The book was published by Scribner in 2010. I believe it shows the "crux" of the problem in American politics, that is, that the American voter "can't handle the truth", as a certain movie line goes.  I'm too lazy to type it out, so I scanned it. I'm putting this up as 2 files, one from the bottom of page 294 of Mondale's book, the second file is from the top of page 295 of Mondale's book.  It shows his thinking at the time for being honest with American voters and telling them that, yes, I was going to raise taxes:

Inna Shevchenko

I think she comes off as quite impressive here. Hope any of my blog readers might enjoy it. This is from one of the "Ted Talks" (I OBVIOUSLY had nothing to do with the production or creation of this, I just embedded it from Youtube):

Allie Parker, Living/Breathing Hero..... and also Pro Wrestler

This is a short video about a female wrestler, who although not "household name" famous, has a good deal of respect and is known to the true wrestling fans, and is well-respected among her peers.  I was deeply moved by this video, and thought my readers might also find it inspiring on some level. The video was produced by "Turnbuckle Magazine"

You can find "Turnbuckle Magazine" on Twitter:

Varoufakis Is Passing

I realize that the referendum and Professor Yanis Varoufakis' efforts for debt payment renegotiation are NOT a racial issue. It is an economic issue of common sense. That being, you cannot expect a country to repay its debt when you handicap their growth rate from matching exorbitant standards of repayment. And yet, when I think of Mr Varoufakis voluntarily resigning his post in a TEAM move, in a 100% UNSELFISH move for his countrymen after masterly helming the economic part of "the ship" through very rough waters, I am reminded of this movie scene of which I draw a parallel between Atticus Finch and Professor Varoufakis:
