    Getting off our knees = ?

    All we can really do is a little protesting, enough to get into the media, and vote Democratic. There's your action item.

    And here's the truth: I live near a freeway bridge that feeds into our city. As long as I can see SUVs coming over that bridge every morning, there will be no revolution. We don't know what poverty is. We don't have a class so poor that self-immolation is to be preferred to life, and so large that they will turn out by the millions to protest same.

    So get over it and get to work. Show up at our Dem Party meetings. Run for office. Take their money and don't turn up your nose at it. It's the only game in town. Evil only triumphs when good people do nothing.

    Corruption is what keeps us safe and warm. Corruption is why we win. -Syriana
