    the irresponsibility of the poor. I think that's crap.

    As far as being more responsible, yeah, I should be, and I'd be more likely to if I saw any useful way to apply my power as a shareholder. That requires organizing, and yeah, I should get to it, but damn, I'm tired after doing both Democratic party and OWS work and feeling currently, really effing dispirited about both. I need a way to recharge my batteries, or I'm not going to be good for anything pretty soon.

      I'm sure you do a lot as it is. Just talking generally. And the need for a change in our culture. Actually, almost all our official cultures.

      My comment was based on shareholders wanting money from us, and the irony that they didn't oversee their own business to begin with.

      Certainly nothing aimed at you.


      The Internet is just the tail of the Corporate Media dog.

        I was more thinking out loud and in this case, online. I really should do more. I didn't so much take your comment personally as apply it personally :-). So, no problem.

        But I am also really tired. I keep wanting to change the world, but all I can think about is a two-week Costa Rican vacation.

        Not that I can currently afford such.
