  •  Thank you for your response, Adam. (0+ / 0-)

    Fracking is an important issue, and I apologize for making light of it.

    However, I would be VERY surprised if fracking is not being proposed on a rez somewhere as we speak.

    From what I have read in the other thread, I think voter suppression is only part of MB/navajo's panel. I think you can and should have multiple panels on voter suppression, as voting is how laws get changed in this country.

    You should also have dedicated panels on Native Americans every year.

    Lots of diaries get written about atrocities in Iraq and Iran and Uganda and A-stan when major inequities exist right here at home. Diaries are written about transgender people, homosexuals, the disabled, prisoners, women, African-Americans, et cetera.

    Very little about a native population that also needs help, and has been promised it through many, many treaties.

    As I told you before, I respect you for making impossible decisions you know will not be popular with many. Including me.

    If you do not believe that there is an ongoing war on women, then you aren't paying attention. h/t The Pootie Potentate

      I appreciate your response, and this ongoing conversation we've had.  We just don't have the resources to be fully representative of every important issue facing the country and the progressive movement -- it would require an agenda three, four, five times what we've got -- and so we've got to make choices.  They're not going to be ideal for everyone, but we do what we can.
