  •  I thought the cliff stuff would be my last straw (9+ / 0-)

    Providing Obama and Democrats made yet another astoundingly transparent and cynical "compromise." Instead, this is it. It really presents a very clear picture of exactly where the power lies in today's USA, and a huge contingent of the very wrong people are drunk with it. This is the last time, ever, that I will swallow and vote for the lesser of two evils. Whatever that means, I have to use my vote as part of a slow build elsewhere, however long it takes, because the other alternatives aren't actually alternatives at all.

    I was at many of the NYC protests. I laid low, but I saw all of the tactics at work by the police on the ground, the hate and paranoia propagated by the media, and the "conspicuous in its absence" nature of the federal reaction. Truly sickening.

    Others have pointed out how profoundly strange the dynamics are at this point. I could carry a gun in public and protest providing my complaint does not challenge the status quo, but unarmed with the wrong message, I am the target of coordinated, fascist oppression, and potentially at risk of death by sniper.


    Slap happy is a platform.
