    We all know the fair & balanced game.

    What's the incentive for For-Profit media to broadcast an interview with a Tea Partier who breaks the narrative?  Since the Tea Party is being run top-down as an anti-progressive, pro-corporate group, isn't the pressure on media outlets to conform to their wishes by conforming to the narrative?

    Re: standing with someone who won't stand with you, it isn't fun.  But in the street, in person, telling someone that cracks the armor.  Whenever two protests meet, this is the strategy to follow: "I'm not against you, I'm with you.  I want both of us to benefit from socialism, because we're the ones who need it, not those rich pricks." etc.  Lets you redefine socialism and establish unity.  Then things can change.  Some people keep shouting at you, but some will start a conversation, and the wall cracks a little.
     

    The rich are eating the world. The Republicans are their teeth. The Democrats are dentists who refuse to pull those teeth because they are so beautiful and sharp.
