Thanks for your response. I agree completely that there are larger failures of health care, social equity, public education, etc. that can just as easily be categorized as we seem to agree. What is fascinating is how intelligent educated people can not see this, in fact believe or claim to believe the opposite. I am getting insight into Germany and aitaly in the 30s.

First, thanks for posting the first comment on my just introduced blogs. And, yes, I agree, but Democrats need to be clearer on what the real issues are today--particularly in the domestic realm. As someone with a western European background, it is inconceivable to me that in the wealthiest country in the world there are tens of millions of people without health insurance and so on and one....

You are quite right. It seems to me that the larger issue is the historic implications of the collective denial of reality that the vote in the House represents. It is all done to position the Republicans for the fall elections (and head off Democratic investigations of Republican corruption) in calculated disregard for what is happening in Iraq, the Middle East and the world. It may work for the fall elections, but it only lays the foundation for a greater disaster later. I invite you to write about "social failure" for lack of a better term, i.e. the complete failure of the dominant party and class to deal with reality and contempt for the ordinary and predictable consequences of that failure.
