A busy week
Tonight I hosted the MoveOn Operation Democracy district council meeting. This weekend I am attending The National Conference for Media Reform here in Memphis. Friday we have a rally to oppose any escalation of the war in Iraq.
I BELIEVE: That the purpose of communication is not to speak so that you can be understood, rather it is to speak in such a way that you cannot be misunderstood; That we have it within us to do both good or evil and choose which we will do; That reason can lead one to a better, more well founded set of moral guidelines than authority ever will; That if there is nothing for which you would give you life then it is not worth much; That the only sin lies in hurting another unnecessarily; That trickledown economics do not work; That taxation should be progressive rather than regressive; That our economy is driven by consumption to a greater extent than it is by investment, though they both play a part; That great oratory is a vital skill for a leader; That our similarities are greater than our differences; That honesty and fidelity are the first among virtues; That doubt is a virtue and faith a vice.
