  •  we are trying to overcome 30 years of repub. (5+ / 0-)

    policies. i think we're making some progress but it's damn slow. we need more liberal judges on supreme, more senators like e. warren. every election is important, local & national. we have to be in it for the long haul because that's what it will take and yes it's up to us. great diary!

       Our politicians care less and less about what we think -even immense campaigns to get them to accept or reject policies seemingly have no impact anymore.

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
