      I am more frightened at this moment than I was a year ago.

      this is a far greater proportion of the public that doesn't have its collective head buried in the sand as was the case in early 2011.  We're ready, we're organized and I think that people are more prepared to utilize more radical labor tactics (strikes, walkouts, see: Walmart) to fight back this time around.

      It's terrifying that so many of these state legislatures have nothing standing in their way between ramming all of their extremism through.  We'll have to rely on the courts to shut down the blatantly illegal and unconstitutional legislation and each other to stick together and keep trying to educate the public and fight back against everything.

        I participate and 'activate' even in Madison-when possible. Trying to fight off their BS one ear at a time.

        2010 was a real eye opener.

        Tipped virtually currently in DKOS purgatory :-(

          IN Madison, so I'm right on the front lines in case anything of import goes down (as it often does.)  

          Just remember to take good care of your appendages, as these nut bags are throwing a lot of BS around that has to be fought off.

          What do you mean when you say that you are in DKOS purgatory?  What happened?

            gov and his toady administration doesn't change the personality of that town w/his fascist BS.

            Unfortunately, I live in deep red Oz county, and spewing ignorance is second nature to them, it can be isolating. Periodic trips to Madison helped keep me energized.

            As for 'purgatory' I am currently NR'ed. One day, just before the-election I got 'sucked in' by a troll. S/he made an insensitive, judgmental  'lifestyle choice' comment I,and a couple of others found offensive. Normally I'm stingy w/pastry and stay away from meta, unfortunately my nerves were raw that day and 'hid' the comment. Kos said it was unwarranted, and NR'ed all 3 of us. The other 2 have been here a lot longer. I has a sad :-(

            Now feeling like an asshole because cant tip comments-(but can rec good diaries). Embarrassing.  BTW that troll had been here a loong time, and is now banned.
            Hope all of the people at BSP along w/everyone else can be patient w/me..gotta wait and figure out how I get my mojo back.

            Thanks for letting me explain, and for all you always learning. Solidarity with Michigan .
