    the REAL PAIN of millions who are unemployed or know and love people who are trulydestitute.  You seem removed from reality.  What are you?  Staff?  Rich?  It seems you don't want to see the reality of this uprising.  I'm 54 and this is completely different from the'60s and '70s.  

    This is not a fashion statement.

                •  gee, that only took . . . what . . . an hour and (0+ / 0-)

                  ten minutes . . . . . .

                  Next time READ before you shoot your mouth off.

                  "Mr Establishment", indeed.  What a buffoon . . . .

                  My heart has, uh, "been in the right place" since my very first rally back in 1983, when Grenada got invaded. And it was still in the right place when I went to Nicaragua during the Contra war, when I organized for Greenpeace and the Sierra Club, when I was active in the South Africa divestment and Central American sanctuary movements, and when I organized workers for the SEIU and the IWW. Among other things.

                  •  I understand. Don't judge me too harshly. (0+ / 0-)

                    I've given a lot, too....  I won't defiantly describe it all here.  Maybe some day.  I'm so angry, at times.  Ok?  I've seen a lot.  Some tell me I've seen and heard too much.  I know.  There is no gratitude.  No thanks.  Nothing.  For what I've done, I don't get any shiny medals or ribbons.  It was important but unseen and not on the news.  I know....

    •  it seems rather harsh to dismiss the struggles (0+ / 0-)

      of the 60s and 70s as "not real" or not involving real pain, when people died in those struggles.

      I think Civil Rights and the war were very real struggles.  But I was an infant in arms, so I can't really speak to it; maybe it was all just a "fashion statement."
