This Lent, a spirituality of resistance

NOT what resisters have in mind?

A spirituality of resistance to empire, what do you know?

This is indeed to subsume religion to political action, though I’m sure your everyday activists won’t buy that concept.

Off the record with National Public Radio

The “so-called elite” in this country with their heads screwed on straight, says the NPR man in conversation with two fake Muslims with $5 million in their pockets, is too small.

Do you also think there are not enough of us? You and me, I mean. Do you?

Then fight the Republican plot to take away this fellow’s federal funding! What could be clearer?

It’s only money, so???

Sample ballot
Not the whole story here?

Oak Park’s elementary school district understates on the April 5 referendum ballot how much its passage would cost taxpayers, leaving out state equalizer info that ups the ante.

We didn’t have to put it in, say the district’s lawyers.

The law firm that helped draft District 97’s ballot question . . . said it followed state law that dictates how such ballot measures should be written. The law, the firm says, does not specify using the equalizer.

So referendum ballots throughout Illinois routinely do not tell voters the whole story?

Note: Campaign information has been accurate in this case; only the ballot is in question.

On the other hand, what the hell difference does it make?  How many people read the fine print on a referendum ballot anyway?  Tsk.
