    and more clear when I type angry. I admit that. My bad.

    I'm somebody who is caught in a bind.

    I'm angry. Like, shaking angry. Over Chained CPI and how stupid this all is.

    The cataclysmic crack-up of the only alternative in a two-party system is staring us right in the face. The next ten years will be harder than hell post shitfall. And the most powerful people in the party are chasing it like it's free sex or candy.

    A huge chunk of the Democratic Party is self-defeating.

    Sadly. The most effective and dynamic part is the one getting cast as out-of-step and unserious.

    That demographic advantage is a mirage if the Democrats have no brand. I'm trying not to end up where we all have to start over from scratch hip deep in ash and fail.

    I don't know if it's possible.

    I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party

      But we have to start by admitting our system is irretrievably broken and that the scolds around here are meaningless bread and circuses just like the coordinated media lies. The Democratic Party has been compromised irreversibly when the head of the party advocates that we start dismantling the goddamn New Deal.

      Those who would scold me for hyperbole can kiss my ass. I no longer care what they think. It is time to do more than pay this lip service and argue endlessly with apologists put here to keep the charade ginning along. The Media Lies have to be stopped by any means necessary.

      It is time to #Occupy Media.
