  •  It took about 30 years for "Conservative, I guess" (7+ / 0-)

    to become the firmament that distracts people from reacting en masse to the government running fully to the 1%'s cause.

    As mentioned in a diary earlier this week, if we live and speak in liberal+progressive terms while disrespecting the now-assumed conservative+libertarian societal values i this country, we start to take back the idea that things are fine so long as more money and power rise to the top, I feel.

    One person, one group of acquaintances, one community at a time.  I haven't let conservative or libertarian assumptions or even jokes get by in real life interactions without simply showing how they don't apply to real life, for years.  None of the people I know in person beyond a glance at our kids' school functions will talk to me in a manner that assumes the status quo makes sense, today.

    "So, please stay where you are. Don't move and don't panic. Don't take off your shoes! Jobs is on the way."
