  •  there you go again. you must think everything's (0+ / 0-)

    going your way! liberalism is alive and well. at least we're not in a big war and and dems win some elections and if we get some reforms this decade we'll be alright- the internet will save us...  fuck that.

    the left basically bends over for the right just because they ignore their best weapon, because it hurts their little heads to listen to it.

    there's a guy on every corner and stump  in the country yelling the same think tank coordinated talking points and calling your sister and mother whores and liberals liars thieves and traitors and the left's answer is to stick their fingers in theirears and toodledoodledoo

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

    •  The Left doesn't bend over for the right (0+ / 0-)

      there's not nearly enough of us to do that.  That center -> center-right that calls itself the American  "left"?  Yeah, they bend nicely for whoever is most powerful.  We do need more leftists,  Our only hope is that the American Right will produce many.

      Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

      •  it really does. everything the 'left' - progs, lib (0+ / 0-)

        erals, dems - want is made harder merely because they ignore it. there is NO organized opposition to it outside the specifically targeted boycott.

        in almost every community in the US a few blowhards routinely undo/minimize the volunteer activism (hours, donations) of hundreds and thousands of activists.

        if you are active about a major issue know that as soon as you start making progress, lets say toward local legislation, the 1%'s think tanks notice and can use the local RW blowhard to yell over it and activate/enable well-timed opposition motivated by bullshit. the same happens nationally. using distortions, lies, distractions, swiftboating (benghazi, IRS, ACORN, etc) successfully merely because they can- because the 'left' (or any american who believes in democracy) ignores it.
