This is the G-Funk from Brentwood, Tennessee. My "far-left" blog is back! As critiquing the Right-wing has proven to be one hell of a task, I'm going to try and focus on my some of my REAL favorites, especially my congressman, Marsha Blackburn. However, you never know who might show up, so stay tuned!

Throwback but had to post
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) speaks about Republicans' crusade against womens' rights and Planned Parenthood. She makes me smile.
"If by a 'Liberal' they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a 'Liberal,' then I'm proud to say I'm a 'Liberal.'
- John F. Kennedy
Blackburn remarks on the amazing condition of our economy...
Republicans are not going to play I-told-you-so, but it is pretty obvious that the tax reductions passed in 2003 helped Americans dig out of a recession and get back to work.
Our tax policies, the tax relief and reform we passed in 2003 and 2005, helped get government out of the way of America's entrepreneurs, and our unemployment rate is now lower than it was in the 1970s, the 1980s, and the 1990s.
It is time that we begin to fine tune our focus and decide what the priority of government ought to be.
