15 Wins for the Progressive Movement in 2013

Partial victories are important since they can be strengthened. Problems don't disappear when they are ignored. We are called to be active subjects. Reconciliation means discovering a new unity relativizing differences. As prejudice can be overcome as a stepping stone to the event of understanding, ignorance and poverty can be overcome through structural/systemic change.

While Washington was stuck in the grip of the politics of obstruction, grass-roots activists did their part, scoring some major wins for economic justice, civil liberties and democracy. As we near the end of the year, here are some of the biggest progressive wins we saw.

I didn't Get Killed by the Rayguns and the Dream Police! 31.Dec.2013 07:49

WhooooooooHhoooooooo! :)

Despite the Threats to Do So. Only One side of My Head Going Bald so far. I don't remember If it's the Side I Sleep toward the Floor or the Sky? I have to Listen to These Assholes every time I go to Bed. Days are mostly Subliminal Songs and Bullshit like That.

If You Ever Start have a Series of Really Fucked up Dreams that seem like they know Something About Your Life, but Never Seem to Get the Details Right? You've Probably been a Victim of these Assholes Yourself. I Hope they are All Killed or Maimed Severely.

"Happy! New! Year!" don't buy too much. I know I won't be.

Sincerely, Tracy Mapes
