  •  If you think that THIS is what I mean... (none)
    Yours and teacherkens posts seem pretty much like "SCREW the working class! I got mine! Now whats important is xxxxxx issue!!".

    Then you either didn't read what I said, or you're playing games.  Because you're WAY off.
    •  You were backing up teacherken (none)
      in attacking the Democratic Congressman.

      Also, it needs to be said: damn it, the people in your state have to START ELECTING DEMOCRATS if they want the kind of economic justice that you describe

      Note the Democratic Congressman part. The part where he's a Congressman from the Democratic party devoting his life to serving Democrats and the american people.

      As teacherken said
      We are all in this mess together.  All Americans suffer when our country is now held in less regard around the world than is the People's Republic of China. And all humans suffer when corporations are allowed to pollute air and water, whentaxing land at only its highest possible value leads to the destruction of the very trees that clean the air for us.  

      Our concern has to be for far more than economic values and determinations.


      Translation "Hey im doing fine now and they'll just have to take a backseat again while we deal with issue x,y,z,a,b,c that my class is concerned with".

      I'm glad you and teacherken are doing good. I'm glad you're democrats. I dont appreciate your attacks on one of the FEW democratic politicians who dared bring up the class warfare going on in america.

      Remember: there's no sense in talking to them. Talk to your base first, the middle second, and the amoral and lying right never.

      •  ridiculous (3.00)
        "Attacking"?  Grow up.  He's an adult, and he can take some constructive criticism, just as well as dish it out.  I'm sure he's not stewing about it, if he even read it.  You're the one getting your shorts in a knot over it.

        Translation "Hey im doing fine now and they'll just have to take a backseat again while we deal with issue x,y,z,a,b,c that my class is concerned with".

        This translation is idiotic and hysterical.  "My class"?  You know NOTHING about my background, or what I've done in politics and social work. But you come out of the gate with self-righteous bullshit like that?  

        As you so charmingly said above: screw you.  
        •  Seems to me you're the one (none)
          who cant take constructive criticism. Stop attacking people who are among the few voices who speak for the only reason i remain a democrat and you wont recieve criticism. Attack people who want to fight for the working class and it can get much, much, much worse.

          You have a great day now.

          •  awww.... (none)
            There you go, fretting about the "attacking" again.  

            Attacking?  No, speaking my mind.  And I don't need lectures from sanctimonious twits like you as to what I can and can't say to a poster here, Congressman or not.  If you or he can't take the heat, don't post in public forums.  

            I said I believe in this Congressman's politics, but I told him frankly that his coaltion-building skills were lousy in terms of his netroots approach.  And that's where YOU came in, accusing myself and teacherken of being some kind of DLC sellouts who don't care about working people.

            Asshole, I AM a working person.  That's why the Congressman's approach was wrongheaded.  I don't protest because I'm a wealthy latte-drinker, but because he seems to arrogantly assume I need a lecture about working people.  And so do you.

            You think that anyone who doesn't kiss this Congressman's ass for posting here is some kind of anti-working class rich yuppie.  That's bullshit.  Nothing could be further from the truth, in my case.  I'm a grassroots Dem, union member, and labor organizer.

            Since you presume to lecture me, what are YOUR credentials?

              Sorry, ignore this, I wanted to post an example of how the text on this website gets ridiculous with any exteded conversations... I'm showing a friend and this was the first long discussion we found.

            •  Hmm (none)
              You attack the congressman for daring to come out hard for Working Class families. Then you result to namecalling and personal attacks. I forgot i was one of "those people" who are supposed to shut up and do what we're told by our "betters" IE you. I'll try to keep that in mind next time.
