  •  Down here in SC (4+ / 0-)

    Having your own blog pop on on your Facebook feed on the Kos actually impresses people down here in SC.  It's not the kind of impression that gets you invited out to a real dinner with a tablecloth, but it can get your house draft and a shared plate of Nachos.

    That's important when you're helping fight a rear guard action against a Koch funded takeover of your entire state which shotguns money into a superheated right wing money circus where the clowns are increasingly competitive, numerous and frightening.

    Watching legislators race each other to sell out the state's working poor to whatever right wing ground is holding this weeks fundraiser event takes its toll.

    People down here are spending their lives buying people elsewhere time, please don't waste it.

      Seems no one else has responded directly, and you deserve attention for lives spent to buy time for the rest of us. Perhaps even the often-clear-eyed dKos posters don't recognize how little time we have to change course.  Democracy has a short track record, so can't run a comparison with the life span of oligarchies, but at present our future as a viable society looks dim.  Are the posters only posers enjoying their cleverness and rectitude? wjhamilton deserves more than a glance. Are we really ready to fight? DON'T WASTE IT.
