    I will keep that in mind the next time I post a petition to the website.  If it's clueless to petition our government, it's even more clueless to leave the field empty for all the other players to strut their stuff on.

    If we don't compete for the voters' and the government's attention, then we might as well quit this political blogging thing altogether, because we will have nothing more to do than bullshit with each other.

    The Baby Boomer and Generation X cynicism about politics has done nothing to improve things.  Folks have just run riot in the absence of a strong, assertive Democratic/Liberal/Progressive presence that doesn't take no for an answer.

    I see far too many pretentious posers her who just posting things to tell others in what level of despair they are, rather than to tell people to re-dedicate their efforts.  Nobody likes a loser, but let me tell you, even fewer people respect quitters.

    So, you tell me to quit.  Fine.  I will go ahead and just keep on posting these things, even if mine is the only signature.

    Now, look at what I wrote.  Does it in any way contradict what you believe, what you know?  If not, why not sign it?  Why not express your sentiment?  I signed  the petition saying that we shouldn't go for chained CPI, so why don't you sign the one that says that we should make the economy the priority?

    Why should we always be hiding ourselves in despair from the folks who are supposed to be accountable to us?  And has shutting up done us any kind of good at all?

    Simple question: In the years since Republicans successfully urged the disempowering of workers and unions in the Midwest, what has happened to those states economies?
