I have labels and the Dem's get a spine!!

As you may or may not have noticed, since switching to the new and improved blogger, I have labels therefore providing categories you can read instead of scrolling endlessly through archives in a desperate search for the post on, well, whatever crazy randomness I decided to reveal.

Peanutisms are now grouped together if that's all you care about and I think political irony has to be my favorite. I guess I should start including how Democrats fall under that category, too, in order to be fair. It's just harder for me since I agree with most of what their stance is even if I don't like how spineless so many have been.

Until now that is! I just read via Alternet that Dem's plan on using their first 100 hours to pass important bills while disallowing Repub's to get a word in. These bills are things the repub's have tabled for years so it will be nice to see their reaction once the new majority takes over.

House Democrats intend to pass a raft of popular measures as part of their well-publicized plan for the first 100 hours. They include tightening ethics rules for lawmakers, raising the minimum wage, allowing more research on stem cells and cutting interest rates on student loans.
I rather think this is exciting because now we'll get stuff done that will actually help folks from the newer generations coming up - like the X'ers such as myself - and start to take care of those going out, like the Boomers and the Builders. At least I can hope anyway.
