    For a movement barely a month old coming in from America's most scorned political fringe those are startlingly huge numbers.  They will get better on their own momentum alone if they've shot up out of nobody to 1/3 of the public in 30 days.  That's wildfire.  I've been doing left politics for a very long time.  The fastest I've ever see something boom before was the nuclear freeze.    This has more or less the same pace, but it's far bigger in its canvas, and coming from further outside the mainstream.  

    We are the 99%. We are the mob. We are Too Big To Fail.

    •  I totally agree, (0+ / 0-)

      these numbers are as you say "startlingly huge numbers;" especially in light of the fact that it took a long time to get significant msm attention, and most of that has been devoted to the arrests.

      Rick Perry planned for wildfires by cutting Texas Fire Departments $23 million. Your house may burn down, but just think what you're saving in taxes.
