  •  Excellent diary (12+ / 0-)

    poignant and very well written.

    OT, but I love the name of your group, "The Rebel Alliance."  Assuming that means you're a Star Wars fan, they're running ads on TV for Episode 1, which will be back in the theaters next week in 3D.  You might be a geek if that gets you as excited as it does me (and I say this as someone that's old enough to have watch Episode 4 multiple times in the theater when it came out originally).

      Actually the group name was my SO's idea thinking that we are the good guys and seek justice for all. And yeah we have heard about the new release waiting to hear some reviews but we are definitely considering checking it out. Anyway here is a link to the group along with the mission statement.

      The Rebel Alliance

      We are the Rebel Alliance. We demand a government, no matter who is at the helm, that always acts in the best interests of the people of this country. We only support elected representatives who have the courage and political will to stand up for what is right in spite of the moneyed interests working against it. We believe that strong leadership is necessary, especially in these dark times. We expect that our traditional Democratic principles will not be compromised as a means to an end. These principles of social justice and equal opportunity are timeless, require advocacy and must be defended at all costs. Principles before party, always.

      and I love that group name too. It's not mine, as you seem to have figured out. And yeah, super nerd here too. Love me some Star Wars.

      I spent last night drinking wine and watching Battlestar Galactica.

      One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.
