  •  When Stupid is Painful there is Less of it (6+ / 0-)

    Not enough of us are hurting enough to change things yet. Human nature is apathetic unless it is their own pain they want diminished. The elites in Washington won't hurt like the rest of us because they have money and healthcare and average people are just not catching on that they don't care about us up there. The haves are running things and they don't want you to have also. Somewhere along the way the truth that there is enough for everyone got lost in the mine all mine of greedy corporate rule.

      if we are really striving for "sensible" is that even for most of these "haves", following sensible policies is sensible for them too -- although they refuse to see it.

      But, sadly, I think this is sadly too true ...

      When Stupid is Painful there is Less of it

      And, well, between Global Warming and Peak Oil, re energy, the Pain is coming ... sadly ... as I am neither a sadist (wishing it on others) or masochist (wishing this on me and mine).
