Help me help the bees

I have been a Daily Kos member since August of 2006. I have had times of participation and times of quiet. I have had disagreements, and I've made great friendships. I've always been amazed at the ability of this community to come together to help each other, and to help common causes.

It is with that in mind, that I have decided to come to you and ask for your assistance.

I'm serious. Its bad. has officially pissed me off. They've gone after my auto mechanic. That doesn't sit well with me at all. Yelp uses extortion tactics against small businesses and they've now made it personal.

More below the orange hoopty-do of "you don't fuck with my mechanic..."

Calling All Small Businesses

by PRRedlin

Reposted from PRRedlin by PRRedlin

There is one key element of Dailykos that I see missing from our pages and groups here.  I know there are many small business owners who participate in discussions but until now there has not been a way for all of us to collectively pool our thoughts and abilities together.  Large corporations have the Chamber of Commerce and other groups that spend large money in elections, but small businesses on the left have little to no recourse for change.

It is with this hope that this group can become a strength by numbers contention to those on the right.  There are far more small businesses than there are corporations, and because of this small business should be louder and more deafening in comparison.

I invite any and all small or even large business owners with a liberal philosophy to join and introduce them selves to this group (Small Business Administration of Kossackistan) and together perhaps we can discuss business models, what we are doing for our communities/workers, and establish some political goals to work together and achieve.

I will kick this off by introducing myself.

Yesterday I wrote a survey diarythat I will be republishing over the next few days as an attempt to reach as many people as possible.  I would urge all of you who are small business owners of the liberal philosophy to share and repost this anywhere you can to help out this group.

As we gain membership, I'd like to thank you all for joining up with such a new group with such aspirations.  In the near future we will be forming a core administration and delegating particular roles for individuals.  The aim of this group will be to not only form a strong network to influence and lobby for desired shared goals, but to also create a network of small businesses that can work together and better compete against the large and monopolistic corporate empires.  They have the US Chamber of Commerce to do their lobbying, our answer to that will be the SBA of K.

Please see me past the squiggle for agenda items.
