  •  Thanks Ray (15+ / 0-)

    The block quote below is an excerpt of a portion of a comment I wrote on another diary.  It is my way of operating.  If I am wrong, I have no problem admitting it, but I refuse to compromise my basic ethical code.  The only person I have to live with 24/7 is me and I want to look in the mirror and be happy with the person looking back.

    Each one of us has to look within ourselves to determine what we will accept from our party and our politicians.  I expect better than what we have been getting and I resent being told to embrace the pre-ordained suck and be grateful for the crumbs that fall from the corporatist table. I will continue to follow my inner compass here even when it may not be popular.
