Sage Advice for Progressives & Other Concerned Citizens

In case you hadn’t noticed, the Dale Carnegie era is well and truly over. American republican democracy is at great risk when one party, the Democrats, hone their skills at winning friends and influencing people while their rivals employ the scorched earth techniques of birthers, tenthers, 9-12ers, deathers and the other racist paranoid fantasies of Fox News performers and their followers. President Obama acts at our collective peril when he behaves as if there is a new politics.

Bill Maher’s latest “New Rules” commentary, “Float Like Obama, Sting Like Ali.” Is quite important and timely advice for not only the President, but citizens (even teachers) concerned with more rational and compassionate civil society.
