"Environmental activist Van Jones, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, rallied the crowd with a keynote speech Saturday afternoon at the Netroots Nation conference in Minneapolis. ... Jones accused banks and oil interests of being 'committed to one thing and one thing only: they are committed to killing the American dream. ... The question is, will we fight together, or will we fight alone? We have a common enemy and we face a common peril.'" [editor's note: This bears watching; if the pro-gummint "progressives" ever learn how to mobilize folks like the Tea Party (or the antiwar movement of the '60s) did, watch out! - SAT] (06/18/11)
