I think they were probably viewing repression as comfort with authority, though I was viewing it as inattention to important problem-solving tasks.  I don't know, though!
That's cool how you referenced a case.

It is easy to change the language of oppression without changing the sociopolitical situation of its victims.

Umm Alci-  trying to make a point with the 2 options of:   Yes, but only as part of a larger bailout  ???

Nah just an oversight.

<----not happy about the HRC as s of s, BTW.

Me neither, but we'll see how it goes.


I'm tellin ya'll, it must be done.  It's a necessary evil.

Alrighty call me stubborn but I still aint happy 'bout it.  And how would firing HRC look to the 18M dillusional folks that voted for her?  And I don't think her appointment totally takes her out of the game for running against him.  It may even make her stronger. Like if she pulled a General Powell.

Good point, never considered that. After all, she is a Clinton.

ITA!  Like I said, she and Bill showed that they couldn't be trusted in this election season.  I don't put anything past her right now, though I do think Obama was stuck b/t a rock and a hard place when it came to her.  Leaving her totally outside his administration would give her reason to run against him in 2012, and putting in her in his camp better positions her to run in 2012 too.  Seems like he didn't really have a meaningful choice...
