Those Who Despise the Radical Son Will Fall in Love With his Progressive Daughter

Those Who Despise the Radical Son Will Fall in Love With his Progressive Daughter | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Meet the late Sarah Horowitz, child of political activist David Horowitz, who managed to fuse the painful lessons of her father’s life with a mystical Judaism to complete the task he never could: showing how the Left could save itself from...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I ran across an article that was very condemning of Van Jones. He is a a man I do admire so far. I followed that article to the source to learn where it came from. Then I followed up to see who funded the site. I then went on to read several articles about a man named David Horowitz. Ironically I began to read how this man had been most of his life openly and actively what he accused Van Jones of being and then he changed his mind. Then there was a mention of a one time estranged daughter he wrote a book about who was firmly opposite of what her father had become and was a very completely committed progressive. I followed that link as well and found this very heart touching summary of what I feel is a truth. I think I may be buying a book written by this hateful David Horowitz in remembrance of his daughter.

 

 “A Cracking Of The Heart” might be a good book for both parties and all people to read.

 http://www.amazon.com/Cracking-Heart-David-Horowitz/dp/1596981032/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1258493876&sr=8-1

 

 This is what the reviewing author (David Swindle) sums up of Sarah Horowitz lasting legacy: 

 

"The world could not be effectively changed at the level of government. Merely passing laws, smashing institutions, and electing better politicians would not work to heal the world. To do so was to not really go to the root of the problem. To pursue tikkun olam effectively, to truly be progressive, to be radical in spirit, one must operate at the level of individual people – not governments, laws, and institutions.

This approach takes the Left out of the political arena and returns it to the religious realm from which it originally emerged. Focusing on healing individual souls is the way churches and synagogues function. And here’s the secret: it works. Good houses of worship do heal people’s souls and make them better people.

Sarah understood this. That’s why she primarily worked this way: she taught autistic children, she worked with poor communities in foreign countries, she taught at her synagogue alongside her mentor the late Rabbi Alan Lew.

Both those on the Right and the Left need to understand this: the way to heal the world is one shattered human soul at a time." (From the article)

 

Her father David Horowitz who appears to live life exactly opposite of how his daughter lived her short life wrote this book about her.

The Kentucky Republican is laser-focused on confirming conservative judges in what may be his last months as majority leader.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
How do you force people to do want you (or your donors) want even if the public majority doesn’t agree or want it? Stack the deck with judges that agree with you is your only option. hope the majority of people which happen to not agree with you don’t notice. Sort of like boiling a frog. Mitch is hoping people won’t notice till it is too late.

Top Republican Official Says Trump Won Wisconsin Because of Voter ID Law – | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Election officials and Democrats in Wisconsin have repeatedly argued that the state’s strict voter ID law allowed Donald Trump to win the state in 2016 by keeping thousands of voters—predominantly in Democratic-leaning areas—from the polls. Now a top Republican official in the state is saying the same thing. “We battled to get voter ID on the ballot for […]
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
GOP brag about how they controlled the registered voters and prevented tens of thousands from voting. The GOP’s way of keeping the vote clean and honest. Turns out that was likely the only way they could win Wisconsin. They had to rig the game in a good many states with voter ID and other measures to obstruct legal registered voters from voting.

APNewsBreak: No Perjury Prosecution Over Costly VA Hospital

APNewsBreak: No Perjury Prosecution Over Costly VA Hospital | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

The House Veterans Affairs Committee asked for a perjury investigation last fall, claiming the executives repeatedly gave false testimony that masked serious problems with the hospital construction project.

The Justice Department told lawmakers in a May 19 letter that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute. Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado released the letter to The Associated Press on Thursday.

The decision means no one has yet been fired or criminally charged since the cost of the hospital ballooned to nearly $1.7 billion, almost triple earlier estimates.

I may be giving input about the VA hospital at Memphis soon. I'm hoping it will be good. I am a huge supporter of training very smart medical professionals to serve the public and funding their education to do so...Much of the VA was privatized during the Bush and Clinton years using contractors and contract doctors in at least overseas clinics... This lowered the quality of service as retention of both military ranking medical professionals and contractor retention was awful as well…it became a pass through spot looking for a real and better job. . While saving tax payer dollars that then went to fund contractor pockets rather than funding medical, life time medical military commitments , great top of the line on the job training and retirements as well as serious medical education for very bright young people that otherwise wouldn't afford the tab...We didn't get the best deal in the privatization contract.
