    I used to get all my news, political and otherwise, off tv and radio.

    That started to change when I started connecting to bulletin boards and the internet in the '80s and '90s. And, it helped me move to being a democrat, from being a pretty hard core republican. They used to say that the kids would normally vote the same party as their parents, and I think that used to be true.

    Its changed now, and the kids actually go out and figure out how they want to be on their own.

    This diary actually gives me hope that the political landscape will become what I think it needs to be. Progressive and inclusive for and of all the people.

    Keep moving. Its harder to hit a moving target.

      This comment thread is good news.

      This diary is good news, and very well presented.

      And the big story here is that the News Media is well on the way from a pathological recent past to a bright new future.

      We are well along in composting the rotting corpse of Mass Media News, and fertilizing a whole New Demassified Media -- of everybody being able to share information with everybody.

      #3: ensure network neutrality; #2: ensure electoral integrity; #1: ensure ecosystemic sustainability.

    •  Another de-tusked Republican here. (0+ / 0-)

      I was a card-carrying member for 40+ years; got rid of my tusks in 2007/8 so I could caucus for Obama in 2008. I am still the socially liberal/fiscally responsible person I was when I voted for the first time in 1968. I got tired of trying to change the Rep party from within, so I left the jungle and I ain't going back. Ever.

      The world is not interested in the storms you encountered, but did you bring in the ship.
