    and that includes the Obamites are wedging us apart, not only from each other along selfish and issue and tribal lines. They are poking us, all of us, even that toothless guy in Mississippi living in a shack that would shame a hoarder who gets food stamps but has been "learned" that The Gubmint Is Bad, right in the forking eye, with a very sharp stick.

    If the "Dem" leadership that has suckered us so effectively now for almost a decade, is going to destroy the little bits of decency and comity and community that were the legacy of the people who FOUGHT their sorry greedy asses over fundamental rights, FOUGHT by organizing, concentrating their forces and compelling those who sought power to give some real security in exchange for votes and leg work, maybe it's time to call "Dem"by
    dere real names and set up our own tent.

    So sorry for all the people who have tied up their identities with BHO-the-Image, who can't accept that maybe they have been had, that maybe it's time to stand up and go for a march, all together.

    For the ones who are just apologizing for The Only President We Got because it's in their interest somehow, you might want to watch and see how the power bits actually add up. Think your future is secure, from supporting this little gang of Big Thieves? It has not worked out that way in any previous proto-revolutionary period...

    •  And FWIW, I'm 67, neither I nor my wife with her (8+ / 0-)

      "preexisting conditions" will ever be able to stop working, even with SS and Medicare the way it is. The Vampire Squids (remember them?) stole our "equity" and our "savings and investments," and the fuckers in the WH and Congress do nothing about the ongoing looting, the Mr. Potter's Playhouse of buying up Bedford Falls and turning it into Potterville and draining our lifeblood through the hollow fangs of DEBT.

      Safety net? Obamacare requires my wife to GO WITHOUT ANY HEALTH INSURANCE FOR SIX MONTHS, AFTER THE INEVITABLE DENIAL OF COVERAGE LETTER FROM SOME FUCKING UN-SURANCE COMPANY IS RECEIVED IF SHE LOSES HER JOB OR HAS TO STOP DUE TO NOT BEING ABLE TO KEEP UP. There has not been a 6-month period where "medical UNsurance" has not been needed for her. From other posts here, we are not in a unique situation.

      People, THERE IS ENOUGH OF EVERYTHING THAT MATTERS TO GO ALL THE WAY AROUND THE TABLE WE ALL SIT AT. But no -- we have to think that it's OK for that CEO over there to take all but one of the chops and all but one of the nice warm chocolate chip cookies we baked, and be so effing stupid that we let the fuckers who are eating, no, stealing and stuffing themselves with our and our children's food, sucker us into fighting each other over the crumbs.

      How "smart" is that?
