What a Summer!

It's August and I have just one question - What happened to June and July??? And hasn't this been a news filled summer? Michael Jackson and Farrah, Jon and Kate, Palin, Sotomayor, the gym shooting, universal health care... (and here's where I'm gonna insert a little something to think about: Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 - December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US, Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 campaign speech:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every principle of our socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without ever knowing how it happened." He went on to say: "I no longer need to run on the Socialist Party ticket because the Democrat Party has now adopted our platform.

Anyone who isn't worried about the direction our country is currently headed should take a few days to read a bit of history and think about the future of their children.
