      but it did attract a number of people who trotted out their ignorance of what the President has actually done for a whole lot of people they don't appear to give a shit about.

      I'm pissed.  My life goes into the serious shitter if Romney and Paul Ryan are successful.  I will be digging roots for food and hoping my cardboard shelter doesn't get hauled away every day.  I'll be wondering if jail would be safer and more comfortable.  I won't be the only one out there, either, but that doesn't seem to matter.  What really counts is whether or not Cheney's perp walked, or all bankers are lined up and led away in chains.   That causes me a certain amount of distress.  I thought Progressives were progressive, you know?

      Sorry to be so immoderate, but this is life or death for me, and I feel as though that's less important to a lot of lefties than revenge or punishment.  It's easy to take the moral highground on Rule of Law and True Progressiveism when you have enough money to ride out the coming storm.  The rest of us are just collateral damage I guess.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

        about what the president has done. i know people in this community who needed more on certain specific issues, and who were attacked for saying so.

        i'm glad that diary scrolled into oblivion. the vast vast majority here wants to see romney defeated and ryan marginalized.

      •  Collateral damage is how I've described my (0+ / 0-)

        position. The back of a Ranger pickup will be the next move for me and the dog. Which will require funds for gas...

        Aside from jail and being a permanent occupier somewhere, a back up plan for euthanasia occurs to me every so often. No, I'm not suicidal - been there and held off. It's a practical alternative to hunger, severe cold, lack of prescription drugs...

        Maybe we could set up some regional Kossack tent/cardboard cities?
