It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Death of the Democratic Party

Mark the date:  May 31, 2008.  The day that the Rules and Bylaws Committee drove a stake through the heart of the Democratic Party.  One of the last living Democrats on the DNC--Harold Ickes--gave the eulogy.

Pampers Ovomit supporters cheered wildly as fair reflection, the most basic tenet of Democratic Delegate distribution, was stripped away.  The Republican Party rigs the general elections.  The Democratic Party rigs the primaries.   At this moment your vote no longer has any meaning or purpose.  Franchise in America as we know it is dead.

Now we will see if 17 million Americans, led by a 60 year old woman in a pantsuit, can revive it.
