    wouldn't notice or care if millions of us were burning our cities.  

    It's time to get a grip.  They will never care, they will never feel fear or shame, they have new populations all over the world to exploit as consumers and slaves.  We beat CU in 2012 by motivating ourselves to fight for what we wanted.  We will beat the 1% by starting businesses, blocking big box stores from expanding, buying locally, changing our diets, refusing to provide their profits here.  We build coalitions to get what we want, we stop whining when it takes more than a week to get it, we start acting like citizens, not newborn kittens dependent on mommy.  

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      First step is to reject the fraud that is "the Global War on Terror" and to tell the authorities that civil liberties always trumps "security," WTF that is.

      When Americans stop cowering and start accepting a sliver of personal responsibility, we will begin down that road.

      •  Exactly! That's the newborn kittens (0+ / 0-)

        shit.  We need to get it that terror exists, people die, safety is an illusion.  Until that conversation happens we are stuck with huge spy programs because the fallout on a black, Kenyan, Muslim, socialist president wouldn't just fall on him, it would mean mass murders of scary brown people who might be Muslims but probably aren't, and a resurgence of the Republican Party.
