As some of you may recall – Sir Robin Rides Away is hosting the Carnival of Liberals on May 7th. That means it’s time to get those submissions in!! The best way is through the submission form found here. The deadline for submissions is Monday, May 5.
Carnival #63 will be hosted by Batocchio at Vagabond Scholar this Wednesday, April 23. (William Shakespeare’s birthday if you're keeping track at home) Make a note to go over and check it out. I’ll remind you, in case you forget.
Lately, I haven’t been posting as much political content as I used to. There are a couple of reasons for that. Mostly, it’s scandal fatigue. Our government, our election process, our entire political system are just so screwed up, I feel small, insignificant, and utterly helpless in my hopes to change it. Also, there are others who I feel just do it so much better than I do. The second reason is the self-destruction I see going on in the Democratic Party. When I see like minded people who should be happily working together toward a common cause become enemies, it’s time to step back and take a breath.
November is all that matters. I have deliberately been trying to avoid any Primary discussion on this site. That doesn’t mean I’ve given up on the process, far from it!! To that end – Here is my theme for the Carnival of Liberals #64:
Thinking Liberally, Thinking Positively!
I don’t want anything about the primary race, I don’t want any “things are so screwed up rants” As a proud, unabashedly liberal citizen, I get enough of what we’re against, I say – What are we for? I will take submissions on any topic other than the Primary election, but I’m looking for positive submissions. What can Liberalism provide? What can we do better than the failed system of Corporate Harlotry that we have been living under since 1980? Why should anyone be a Liberal? Let’s tell the world on May 7th. Get those submissions in!!
