      Perhaps that wasn't your intent.  

      Maybe you could edit the diary and clarify your allegations.  Thanks.

        Sometimes folk use these diaries as an oppotunity to act out.  Why?  I don't know because it's certainly just as easy not to bother with posting.  If I took to posting in every diary that I had a strong disagreement with, I wouldn't have time to do anything else in life.

        Keep doing the same things expecting a different outcome.

        Doesn't quite work out.

          them of voting against Dem candidates thereby causing the SCOTUS decision is just "acting out"?  Would that the shoe were on the other foot.

          You don't even believe that.  But you want the wars between Dems to continue by supporting this kind of activity - fine.  I'll be happy to accomodate you and the GOP.  

          But you've lost already, because progressive Dems discuss and criticize policies and Dem leaders.  All you can do is attack the people who offer valid criticism and alternate ideas and play like politics is a horse race.  You have nothing to offer this country, no ideas, no solutions, no alternatives except to blindly follow whoever raises the most corporate cash.

        shows that it needs to be personal.  I see the author trying to mend wounds, bring us together.  I see in you and Joanneleon the desire to divide.

          I'm on offense.  I enjoy a good fight.

          Some of us actually live in the real world, one far removed from Washington DC and its Bubble, politics and punditry.
          We're tired of the divisiveness that been hammering our party since 2008.  

          We don't shut up and get on the bus when the economy sucks, unemployment is high, SS is being cut, new wars are waged every day, people grow sicker and poorer and more desperate while the only thing our leaders can do is raise money from billionaires and find new ways to blow billions of our tax dollars on spying on us.

          Your time is nearly up, its time for the rest of us to plan for the future of the party and the country.  You can join us or just pick fights.
