    The way you just described your friends' "protests" are exactly the problem. Post a couple of links on FB, and you've done your job. Then it's back to "Dancing with the Stars". That's what did in OWS, people thought they were part of a movement because they re posted some links while sitting in a Starbucks, or whatever. Meanwhile, Snyder is busy cutting their wages.

      These folks don't read Daily Kos or listen to NPR - they might click on Huffington Post to catch some celebrity news, but they don't know what is going on outside of the hunting season or their kids' activities. My point is that if they (of all people) are posting action links about where to go and what to do - it just might help.

      I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.
