  •  No bootstraps here Joan (0+ / 0-)

    I am speaking right now in the middle of friggin nowhere plus 3 miles in western South Dakota.  We are poor as hell here and work our asses off.  We do have the common sense to ask for help when it is needed and that is where I come in.  Me and this computer will go to work to help enroll my friends and theirs.  We are not so fortunate as other locations that have library computers at our beckon call and that is what I meant.  This is about solidarity and we all damn well better show it to help out.  Here, there are broken down cowboys and girls that have been beaten to death by the hard work they do.  They don't bitch and moan, they just get up and do it limps and all.  You get a cut here and you wrap it, if it is bad enough, you duct tape it.  There are plenty of bootstraps that is for sure,  that would be me and others like me who happen to believe that there are ways in which you can do what you think is not possible to do.  Sorry I pissed you off, but that is just me and my passion for trying to get this done.  We have 6 months to accomplish the first part of this task and we all need to work very hard to get this done.   I am in!

      Solidarity means realizing people need help and we need to be there to give it. But they gotta even know that the help is out there for them. So yes, by all means use your computer and do everything you can with the folks around you to get the word out.
