  •  Thank you for the compliment. I was looking (6+ / 0-)

    back at the last year of diaries, and realized that the archive is really important, so am once again dedicating myself to writing up the actions - though they seem to get less Kos attention than previously.

    The list of old diaries is almost like a timeline of the past year... truly, in retrospect, they take on a "diary" role regarding memory and reflection.

      and republished also to Electronic America.  Hope you don't mind.

      Sometimes it's hit and miss with eyeballs.  Giles did a story that didn't get attention and was off time for recs, but one I did crediting his work hit the Rec List.  Go figure.  

      There IS a lot of interest here about OLB - sometimes people don't know what OLB (the initials) is.  Including the words Pix ad Video when they're included is also helpful in grabbing folks that don't think they can read another paragraph, but lots of the time it depends on what else is out there.

      I'm going to post something about this on the Mid Day Open Thread to see if that brings more attention.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      Something happened when you had that idea about mounting lights in boards. It's felt to me as if something in your personal background came alive and begain to walk and speak at about the same time people's realization of how alarming our situation was - and is.

      As you put it about the perverse idea of "harvest" of whatever can be coldly taken: "the harvest, it seems to me, is the harvest of the surplus value of the workers. It is extraction. Human fracking. Fracture the bedrock, the community, the family, the man, the woman, the children."

      As in, "They took whatever there was to take / and threw it all away."

      You made it visible. You personally, and badscience too of course, but you as everyone who saw or held or dreamed about holding one of those bright letters and who dreams about what they are going to spell out.

      "Romney owns 51% shares in Bain Capital". Do you have a source for that number? It is inconceivable that in 2012 Romney owns a majority equity interest in Bain Capital.

      "let's talk about that"
