  •  Do we really want to be telling folks... (4+ / 0-)

    ...that if they weren't out in the streets during the Bush era or the Clinton era or the Daddy Bush era or the Reagan era or the Carter era or whatever, that they shouldn't get their asses out in the streets (or the steps of the Supreme Court for that matter) now because maybe they didn't before?

    This seems to me like a counterproductive stance for progressives interested in change to take.

    I don't know what any of these 19 folks did or did not do during these previous eras, and quite frankly, I don't really care.

    Why can't we just be happy that folks are out there actually doing something, and actually trying to make change happen?
