    I've missed your diaries and I do believe in taking action.  And I understand where your coming from and respect that.  I have been a fighter all my life and even became a social worker in hopes of us finding a better way for all.  Part of what I feel has a lot to do with what the corporate types did to my profession and how they literally threw the poor and mentally ill to the curb.  But that wasn't enough, then they came for the middle class, professions that did make large profits, and on and on.  And now that I'm disabled, heck as I was becoming disabled I knew what I was facing back then and I was so afraid.  But, this just throws another monkey wrench in the whole mix and I know I'm not alone.  

    However, I believe many of tipped and rec'd diaries are almost like a cathexis for many that are feeling helpness against people who have power to do harm and we honestly are struggling to fight back.  The President has been told over and over again by the people and yet he doesn't listen, and of course people are going to feel panic.  Our system has always had flaws, but as of late our system is sustaining fewer and fewer people.  

    There is only so much organization can do and I think like others it appears that the President only listens to organizations that tell him what he wants to hear.  The election should have told the Democrats that the third rail should be left untouched and they just didn't listen.

    Thanks for your response, I do understand where your coming from, I just have great doubts about whether or not we have the power to protect ourselves from cuts that are being forced on us after we spent years paying to sustain a public system.
