    You are not interested in getting my support.

    Goodbye.

      I am offering my own support to the unions who marched yesterday to protest the dismantling of collective bargaining rights.

      Whether you choose to lend your body and voice to the movement is for your conscience and values to decide.

      Join or don't. I don't personally think your "support" is as indespensible as you apparently think it is. But what do I know? You might be George Soros behind that anonymous handle.

          I keep forgetting how important you are.

            Not, "I am not seeking your support."

            So, good luck with that.

              when the only thing you have to offer is critqueing and criticizing the actual work others are actually out in the real world performing.

                You presume much.  Way too much.

                You presume the "actual work" you are doing helps elect more and better Dems.  

                You presume that I must support you.

                You presume that what I do in "real world performing." does not "change the world."

                You accused me of arrogance.  The irony. It stings.

                Here is where we are:

                You think you deserve respect for your actions and support from me.

                You do not.

                If you want it, you must persuade.

                You claim to speak for the 99%.  At the moment,  according to the ever trustworthy Ras, 1/3 of America support what you are doing.

                That is not enough.

                And I guarantee if OWS continues along the same lines, that support will drop.  

                At present, you are a novelty, just begining to make the news.  Come a hurricane, or a flood, or a flood, you will disappear.  

                Come violence, your support will evaporate.

                Get focused, get organized, get leadership, and that may be averted.
