Reconciliation: Definition from the 1895 Edition of Funk & Wagnels

Acquiescence is a legal term used to describe an act of a person in knowingly standing by without raising any objection to infringement of his rights, when someone else is unknowingly and honestly putting in his resources under the impression that the said rights actually belong to him. Consequently, the person whose rights are infringed cannot anymore make a claim against the infringer or succeed in an injunction suit due to his conduct. The term is most generally, “permission” given by silence or passiveness. Acceptance or agreement by keeping quiet or by not making objections.

So, I guess that the question is…Who is being reconciled here? We the people or the corporate government?
Dennis Kucinich is saying, in essence, that the Corporate interests must reconcile themselves to the interests of We The People. The majority of the people want an adequate health insurance program with a public option, preferably an option that guarantees health care that is not ran by profit motivated corporations.

Howard Dean takes “Gin Grinch” to the wood shed

My humble apologies for the Faux news video, it’s all I can do to keep from gaggin, but John Dean and John Podesta do such a good job of decimating the Grinch I figured it might pass muster. I take no responsibility for any ill effects suffered from viewing it, such as Pelosi Syndrome or Hoyer Hump, and with great trepidation present it here with the Grinch, in his own territory, being taken to the wood shed by, non other than, Dr. Dean…G:

ThinkProgress Interview With John Podesta
