    circumstances have also changed rather radically since the site came online.

    We've got a civilization undergoing collapse so it's not surprising that an hour or more can pass with no new diaries here and rational people seem clueless about answers to seemingly simple questions.

    Show me the crib notes of how we can fix the global superpower in the next 5 years. I'm more interested in that than in the fate of some stupid club.

    •  If this is some 'stupid club' why waste your (0+ / 0-)

      time here. Your being obtuse to a fault on this one Gooserock.

      •  what an ironic question... (0+ / 0-)

        ...considering you're posting a diary to tell us how much you hate the place instead of, you know, just getting the fuck out.

        I hate this place a lot of the time  (for reasons almost exactly the opposite of yours - I think a lot of people here are so naive, blindly idealistic, and tactically stupid they're not worth working with anymore), and when I do I leave for long stretches of time.

        Try that, because, honestly and truthfully, about all your concerns, my concerns, whoever's concerns?  Nobody gives a shit.

      this doesn't need to be some stupid club. it can coalesce the brain power offered here to work, research local/regional laws and solutions of other communities, create websites for sane and secular candidates... there's lots we could do with leadership using the internet to do much more than deliver op-eds and pootie pics.

      we could use it to help us organize the ground game in communities to regain the foothold of the sane and secular and civic minded ...

      but five years? well, maybe it could happen in five years. but time isn't the point. we just have to start.

      we came here as Democrats when we believed being a Democrat and voting Democrat yielded some kind of social/economic justice. America was never great, but its people made it good. Democrat was simply a vehicle... but those now in power in that party are allowing Republicans to disrupt our backyards while they, the Dems, sell our sovereignty to corporations, TPP, and war.

      so, while I do not appreciate Daily Kos being called a whore, I have to agree with most of the sentiment expressed.

      what are your ideas? btw...
