    I'll tell you.  Beaten, broken, kicked to the curb one too many times.  The smashing of Occupy, and then the heaping of victim-blaming on Occupy, almost entirely by "liberals" and "progressives". Democrats almost all, from Mumbles Menino to Jean Quan to the boss at UC-Davis.

    At the same time there is now an anger, a fire, on the real Left, that in 35 years of political life I've never seen before.  Occupy was a deep and sincere effort of the radical Left to reach out to mainstream America, until the "centrist" establishment slammed them up against a wall, kneed them to the groin, and denounced and mocked them for the beatings they took.   Not yet forgiven, never to be forgotten.  An important lesson imparted to the activists as to who is worth working with when conditions allow, and who is a permanent foe that will always inevitably seek to destroy us in service to capital.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
