Cleveland's youngest mayor explains why he allowed the city to default rather than agree to privatizing the public power plant.
Interesting read as the Democratic party is still dividing between pro and anti privatizers. Gregg, in the pro camp, the other day was complaining he might have to attend another convention with all those Kucinich whackjobs. I like the whackjobs, I used to be neutral on privatization but now regard it as almost unmitigated evil, bad for people, bad for government, bad for politics.
From Dennis Kucinich's Prayer For America speech.
America, America. Let us pray for our country. Let us love our country. Let us defend our country not only from the threats without but from the threats within. Crown thy good, America. Crown thy good with brotherhood, and sisterhood. And crown thy good with compassion and restraint and forbearance and a commitment to peace, to democracy, to economic justice here at home and throughout the world. Crown thy good, America. Crown thy good.
