Buy actonel without prescription, —(Editors Note: We agree with David about the well funded “liberal left” but there is a fairly large festy grassroots left around the country that rarely gets mentioned in the media, and certainly isn’t well funded (hint, hint, hint) and that “Change-Links” is a part of).
I’m always amused by popular references to the allegedly all-powerful American “Left.” The term suggests that progressives today possess the same kind of robust, ideologically driven political apparatus as the Right—a machine putting principles before party affiliation.
This notion is hilarious because it is so absurd.
Yes, buy discount actonel, there are certainly well-funded groups in Washington that call themselves “progressive, Best price actonel, ” that get media billing as “The Left,” and that purport to advocate liberal causes regardless of party. But unlike the Right’s network, actonel discount, which has sometimes ideologically opposed Republicans on court nominations and legislation, Actonel sales, many “progressive” institutions are not principled at all—sadly, lots of them are just propagandists for Democrats, regardless of what Democrats do, buy actonel online australia.
Everyone in professional “Left” politics knows this reality “deep down in places they don’t talk about at parties, Buy actonel low price, ” as Jack Nicholson might say—and they don’t discuss it for fear of both jeopardizing their employers’ nonprofit tax status and/or undermining their employers’ dishonest fundraising appeals to liberal donors’ ideals.
During the Bush years, this truth was easily obscured, as bashing the Republican president for trampling progressive initiatives was equivalent to aiding Democrats, buy actonel without prescription. But in the Obama era, “The Left’s” destructive, buy cheap actonel, party-over-principles motivation has become impossible to hide, Actonel online without prescription, especially recently.
Behold, for instance, cheapest actonel, major environmental groups’ attitude toward the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Actonel without rx, We know that before the disaster, President Barack Obama recklessly pushed to expand offshore drilling. We also know that his Interior Department gave British Petroleum’s rig a “categorical exclusion” from environmental scrutiny and, actonel from canada, according to The New York Times, Cheap actonel in canada, “gave permission to BP and dozens of other oil companies to drill in the Gulf without first getting required [environmental] permits.” Worse, we know that after the spill, the same Interior Department kept issuing “categorical exclusions” for new gulf oil operations, find no rx actonel, and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar still refuses “to rule out continued use of categorical exclusions, Discount actonel, ” as The Denver Post reported (heckuva job, Kenny!). Buy actonel without prescription, Undoubtedly, had this been the behavior of a Republican administration, “The Left’s” big environmental organizations would be scheduling D.C. protests and calling for firings, actonel cheap price, if not criminal charges. Order actonel without prescription, Yet, somehow, there are no protests, buy actonel on internet. Somehow, Get actonel, there have been almost no calls for the resignation of Salazar, who oversaw this disaster and who, before that, cheap actonel on internet, took $323, Order no rx actonel, 000 in campaign contributions from energy interests and backed more offshore drilling as a U.S. senator. Somehow, facing environmental apocalypse, there has been mostly silence from “The Left.”
That silence is similarly deafening when it comes to Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, buy actonel without prescription. We know Kagan was among the Clinton administration advisers urging the president to support a serious abortion restriction and to avoid reducing racist disparities in criminal sentencing. We know that as Harvard Law School dean, Kagan “hired 29 tenured or tenure-track faculty members [and] did not hire a single black, Latino, or American Indian—not one, not even a token,” reports Duke University’s Guy-Uriel Charles. And we know that in her solicitor general confirmation hearings, Kagan stated her radical belief that the government can hold terrorism suspects without trial.
Again, if this were a Republican nominee’s record, “The Left’s” pro-choice and civil rights groups would be frantically mounting opposition—or at least raising concerns. Buy actonel without prescription, But this is a Democratic nominee, so they’ve fallen in line. Planned ParentHood celebrated Kagan’s “dedication,” the NAACP trumpeted her “commitment to diversity” and the liberal Alliance for Justice said it “applauds” her nomination.
Surveying the hypocrisy, CNN’s Roland Martin wrote that “The Left’s” organizations “need to decide what matters: their principles or their politics ... their convictions or chicken dinners in the White House.”
He’s too late: They’ve already made their decision, which is why—regrettably—a powerful Left does not exist in America.
