     my point is why go after gore for doing what's (0+ / 0-)

    natural to him

    You mean like being a member of the investor class?  You must have missed the point of the last post.  More capitalism is not the solution  This is precisely why I'm not into Gore -- he's a false idol.
    if he is pushing for solutions
    I'm sorry, I must have missed the communique in which Gore's effective solutions for global warming were outlined.  Was he at any point advocating keeping the grease in the ground?  
    i've spent most of my spare time innovating along the lines of fixing things and improving the planet
    Is the planet improved yet?  Or is it merely accumulated, as in capital accumulation?
    there are probably two main avenues for climate reform- legislation, and by playing the competition game.
    Then let's try legislation.
    and meaningful legislation is impossible (see immigration, health, gun, food, media, tax, election, military reform) as long as the left ignores RW radio
    No, this is an excuse for the Democratic Party's refusal to advocate.

    •  so how are you going to get legislation passed? (0+ / 0-)

      all the think tanks have to do is wait till all the work has been done, start something from their giant buzz machine and pretty soon its benghazi benghazi.

      some of the most effective legislation will be to subsidize/stimulate  clean energy, or at least even the playing field, so it can compete. or carbon tax, etc. you're not going to legislate capitalism away.

      couldn't even get single payer- made impossible since clinton with 20 years of unchallenged talk radio lying. no gun control- a no brainer right? why do we have a party that denies global warming? it's a party full of certifiable loons riding the talk radio express. how do you get the dems to get anything passed? seems like the right holds most of the cards and every time the dems try to regulate and raise taxes on the rich or stop torture or whatever, they get obstruction and end up compromising. they have to play the money and compromise game until we get election reform and move the dems left or make it possible for a third party (impossible without election reform). OWS was yelled over by 1000 radio stations and afterwards for months- politicians don't have to pay attention to protestors anymore.

      maybe win the house in 2014? every election it's the same. and how many people who think obama is a failure are going to stay hope like the fucking idiots in 2014 who didn't what they wanted when they wanted and thought all they had to do was vote blog and whine?

      the left will get nothing but scraps until they stop giving talk radio a free speech free ride.

        Don't worry -- it won't last forever.  

        you're not going to legislate capitalism away.
        You must have missed my last several posts, or perhaps my last 250+ diaries, on this topic.  Capitalism will legislate itself away.  The big question in this regard is what will happen afterward.

        •  what i'm saying is we're stuck with it for a while (0+ / 0-)

          and we're stuck with it a lot longer if its best weapon is invisible to the very people whose efforts it harms the most.

          i nor the rest of my family cannot wait for capitalism to collapse on its own. the planet cannot wait. it has to happen soon.very soon. capitalism's best weapon the last 25 years is invisible. it is talk radio but you're strategizing from behind, like all the left, because they don't even acknowledge talk radio while its kicking their ass.

        •  PS afterward? (0+ / 0-)

          if the left still has no idea what's being blasted from their local radio stations they may not even hear the public service announcements.

          your most significant opponent is your RW state megastation which will be broadcasting dedicated free programming for the national right wing think tanks to hype 'illegal' immigrants and terrorism so they can create wars and pass voter suppression, and so on.
